May First: Red, Proletarian, and Internationalist!

A new great wave of the world proletarian revolution is advancing today in the globe. Its advanced point is the people's war leaded by the Maoists in Peru, Nepal, as well as in India, Philippines, and Turkey. In many other country oppressed by the imperialism the masses rise and struggle with the weapons in their hands, even if these struggles are not leaded by proletarian forces, through genuine Communist Parties. In the very core of the imperialist system, a crisis that has no solution is deepening. The imperialist governments cannot hold peacefully any of their world summit, although they unchain all their armed force against the struggling masses. More and more the proletarians, the unemployed, the women, the youth in the imperialist country feel the need to make an end of a system based on the exploitation and the oppression, the repression, the racism and the war; even if the way of the revolution has not yet been affirmed in its universal form of the people's war, as the only solution that can give to the proletarians and to the masses the political power and the liberation in a world scale.

From the Andes to the Himalayas, from Cincinnati to Berlin, from Prague to Nice, from Naples to Quebec, from Istanbul to Bombay, from Gaza to Bogota, a strong shout rises:

Death to the imperialism, death to the fascism and the reaction, death to the exploitation and the oppression!
Long Live the Red and Proletarian May First!
Long Live the May First under the Flags of the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Long Live the PCP, the CPN(M), the TKP(ML) and all the new Maoist Parties united in the ranks of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement!
People's War until Communism!

It is in the core of the working class, amongst the exploited proletarians and the immigrates, the precarious workers and the unemployed in our country that we have to celebrate this May First, organizing the struggle, raising the class-consciousness, forging the leadership and the cadres to develop and spread the Cobas and all the form of self-organization necessary for advancing the struggle.

It is working to organize the rebellion of the women as powerful force of the struggle, of the transformation; to give class strength and revolutionary perspective to the rebel youth in the struggle against the new fascists of all kinds, against the state repression and the every-day oppression. It is defending the communist and struggling vanguards charged with crimes and shut up in the jails that we help in making this May First a day of genuine red and proletarian struggle.

Above all, we must now bring our best energies to build, in the fire of class struggle, the new revolutionary Party of the proletariat, the maoist Communist Party, to turn the actual struggles into revolutionary political struggle, according the strategy of the people's war, to overthrow the old and new governments of the bourgeoisie, fighting the modern fascism and the racism, getting rid of the rotten illusions of the electoralism, of the pacifism and of the opportunism, mainly embodied by Rifondazione Comunista and supported by the recycled Trotskist group and by the eternal political stratum of the movementist autonomen.
