MAY FIRST 2004
This May First we celebrate, on a world scale, the 20° anniversary of the formation of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement, of which the Italian Maoists are founding members, earlier as "Agit-Prop", then as "Rossoperaio", today as PCm.
To think to build the proletarian party, without an ideological basis and fundamental principles, the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, without relationships and an ideological unity with the parties and organizations those embody these principles and put them into the practice on the reality of the class struggle throughout the world, is a revisionist, opportunist, anti-internationalist, petty bourgeois intellectualist position.
These positions characterize not only revisionist and Trotskyite forces – as obvious since they always were in the essence against Marx, against Lenin and today they are against Mao, against the genuine revolutions and people's wars – but also all those groups and organizations claiming to be Marxist-Leninist or even, sometimes, Marxist-Leninist-Maoist (PTB in Belgium, MLPD in Germany, the Carc, nPCI in Italy etc.). All these forces, beyond the words they write, are against the actual embodiment of the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism on a world scale, against the advanced revolutionary experiences led by the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties united in the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement. So, these forces fail a necessary condition and an acting principle basis to define themselves as communist in the international context and also to build the communist party in their countries.
To be part of the RIM means to struggle in its ranks to establish a red and proletarian line that allows in every part of the world to affirm the universal road of the people's war, applied to the different conditions of the countries oppressed by the imperialism and of the imperialist countries. This is necessary also to define someone as Marxist-Leninist-Maoist in Europe, from this comes the program, the development and application of a strategy and a tactics for the revolution in every country.
These ideological and principle basis, translated in a Project of Thesis, in which we apply the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism on the concrete reality of Italy, characterize the constitution/construction of the PCm in Italy and the revolutionary politics it carries out in Italy, in the fire of the class struggle and strictly linked with the proletariat and the masses, in function of the initiation and development of the people's war in Italy; they are the fundaments of our advance in the ideological forge of professional revolutionary cadres; they allow us to deepen our roots in and lead the concrete proletarian struggles in the South of Italy and in a few factories of our country, to build strong liaisons with the masses through the growth and advance of the generated organizations: the Cobas for the class union, the Revolutionary Proletarian Feminist Movement, the youth organization Red Block, the Proletarian Red Relief, the Nepal Solidarity Committees.
Without such understanding and practice to build the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist communist party in an imperialist country is impossible. Apart these principles and purpose we have only economism, spontaneism, eclectic and principle-less frontism, abstract propagandism of the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism.
In this sense, the celebration, the May First 2004, of the 20th anniversary of the RIM find us in the middle of the building of the party in our country, serving the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution.
From the Andes to the Himalayas, from the Turkey to the Latin America, from India to Iran, from the United States to Italy, in the heart of the imperialist countries: People's war until communism!
Long Live the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Long Live the Maoism, down with the revisionism!
Let's build Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties in function of the initiation and development of the strategy of the people's war in the imperialist countries, in the fire of the class struggle and strictly linked with the masses!
Let's celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement, establishing the red and proletarian line of the Maoism and the universality of the people's war!
Death to the imperialism! Long live the proletarian internationalism!
