200 Jahre Karl Marx

We have received the following report from the Organisation Committee (FRG) for the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx that we gladly share. More information, pictures, videos and all written contributions of the event will be made public in short time. So stay tuned!


Long had it been in planning, tremendously it went: On Saturday the 30th of June about hundred comrades and organisations from ten different countries came together to jointly culminate the international campaign on occasion of the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx with a big celebration. It was a celebration truly in the spirit of the campaign slogan (“Proletarians of all countries, unite!”) that especially expressed one thing: The International Communist Movement is ripe to unite under the banner of Maoism and as communists in formation in the FRG we can and must assume this, our, task.

In the powerful and vivid celebration with both its parts (the speeches and the cultural program) the enormous will and urge of all participating Parties and Organisations to overcome the dispersion of the International Communist Movement and to unite under Maoism became very clear. Comrades from the oppressed countries stood side by side with their brothers/sisters in arms from the imperialist nations; militants of the Communist Parties that lead People’s Wars stood united with activists of small organisations, who’s seeds are yet to bloom. On this day, we, comrades from Peru, Brazil, Turkey, Chile, Austria, France, Sweden, Finland, Galicia and the FRG stood united – united on the basis of Maoism.

Who could claim, in the face of this celebration, marxism would be bone dry, would be ancient or would be a thing of the past? Marxism is alive! It lives in the theory and joint practice, in the common songs and slogans, the cross-border theatre plays and the two-line-struggle. It is alive in the stance of the comrades, who have given everything that day to make the celebration into the success it was. A celebration that, in such a form, has not taken place in the FRG for many, many years.

To the comrades who were unable to participate in the celebration because the class struggle in their country does not allow them to leave their post and fly to another country or because the reaction, yet again, has made a dear comrade disappear: Our victory is your victory, comrades! Your messages of greetings have reached and deeply touched us and all participants of the event. Soon the final translations into German, English and Spanish or Portuguese of all the speeches and messages of greeting will be done and published.

Apart from the speeches in the name of the People‘s Movement Peru (Reorganisation Committee), the Revolutionary Front for the Defence of the Rights of the People [Brazil], the Revolutionary People‘s Student Movement [Brazil], the Communist Party of Turkey / Marxist-Leninist, the Communist Party of Ecuador – Red Sun, the Nucleus for the Reconstitution of the Communist Party of Mexico, the Red Faction of the Communist Party of Chile, the maoist Communist Party of France, the Communist League [Sweden] the collective Red Flag [Finland], the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Galicia and the maoist Communist Party [Italy] that were read during the event, also the video messages of the Poor Peasents League [Brazil], A Nova Democracia [Brazil] and the Committee Red Flag will be transcribed and published.

In an internationally coordinated action, flags with Hammer and Sickle were put up on the 5th of May in various cities of the FRG. On the 5th of May 200 years ago Karl Marx was born and hence flags were hoisted not only in the FRG but revolutionary organizations from different countries on this day hoisted flags in the streets and places of the working class neighborhoods. Here, apart from actions in Weimar, Bremen, Berlin and Hamburg, actions were also made in Karl Marx City of Birth, Trier. Regarding the latter, a video has already been published. Also, videos and pictures were already published regarding the great actions that took place in Brazil (Video + Pictures) and in Austria (Report + Photos, Report by Partizan). In Sweden, on the 5th, comrades put up the banner of the 200 Years Campaign in Stockholm (Pictures) and, as posters in four different languages, on the walls in the proletarian neighborhoods. Among others, also the comrades from Finland contributed by publishing the Finnish translation (Translation) of the 200 Years Karl Marx declaration on occasion of the Birthday. Following we document Photos of some actions that took place in the FRG and that we have received pictures about:

We are very happy to have received word from the most advanced comrades in Austria, the Committees for the Foundation of the (Maoist) Communist Party, about their determination to sign the international declaration of marxist-leninist-maoist Parties and Organisations of the 1st of May and the Campaign of 200 years of Karl Marx.

On the 5th of May, Maoists all over the world celebrated the 200th Birthday of Karl Marx. Contributing to the international campaign on this occasion, Maoists in the FRG and other parts of the world, hoisted flags with Hammer and Sickle in the streets, buildings, squares and popular neighborhoods and whereever our class is present. A particularly outstanding action in Germany was made in the City of Karl Marx’ birth,  the City of Trier. Both, at Marx’ place of birth, as well as at the house he lived in, the Maoists hoisted their flag amidst challenging circumstances: Whereas Trier usually is not the point of focus for either great country wide attention nor the international spotlight, on this very day all kinds of bourgeoisie, revisionist, fascist and repressive forces converged on Trier to – in one way or another – soil the tremendous accomplishments of Marx. The action, which we received some information and footage about, was a blow to this attempt.

We publish this english translation of a joint declaration for the First of May 2018:

Proletarians of all countries, unite!

Joint declaration of Maoist Parties and Organizations on the occasion of the First of May 2018

“Proletarians of all countries, unite!”

In this First of May 2018 we address the international proletariat, as part of the Great World Campaign for the 200 years of the birth of our great founder, Karl Marx, under the slogan of “Proletarians of all countries, unite!”

In this glorious bicentenary of our great founder we also celebrate the 170 years of the Manifesto of the Communist Party, reaffirming the full validity of the fundamental Ideology, Principles and Program of the international proletariat established by him, synthesised in the motto: Proletarians of all countries, unite!

With the Communist Manifesto, the first systematic theoretical, ideological and political presentation of Communism, the International Communist Movement was born, from the League of Communists to the International Workers Association and from the latter up until today, passing through the II. International and the III. International, the glorious Communist International and organized expression of the vanguard of the international proletariat, which marches, through twists and turns, unstoppably upholding, defending and applying the principles and the program which will lead humankind to the New World, to the classless society, Communism.
