On occasion of yesterdays 125th Birthday of Chairman Mao, not only comrades in the FRG took action, but internationally, in many countries, comrades held combative events and published declarations on the teachings of Chairman Mao. Some comrades, on occasion of this anniversary, also took up the opportunity to link these actions with manifestations of solidarity with the international campaign for Dr. Sernas Garcia to be presented alive.

In support of the international campaign #DrSernasPresentaciónConVida for the alive presentation of comrade Dr. Ernesto Sernas Garcia, who was forcefully “disappeared” by the reaction, activists in the FRG in the last couple of weeks have produced a number of stencils with a lasercutter with his likeness and, together with a leaflets explaining the situation of the comrades in Mexico, send them to different internationalist and anti-imperialist localities throughout the country.

In the following we document a translation of the statement released a view day ago by Construction Committee of the Maoist Communist Party of Galicia condemning the sentence imposed upon the 23 young revolutionaries in Brazil.

Declaration of the CC of the Maoist Communist Party of Galicia vigorously condemns the conviction of 23 young activists in Brazil

In the face of the sentence, that was released the past 17th of June, of nine years in jail for 23 activists who participated in the mobilization against the FIFA World Cup in 2013 and his nefarious and corrupt management, we want to publicly take position and state:

From comrades of Bremen we have received the following photos of an action in solidarity with Turgut Kaya:

On the 18th of May, the 45th anniversary of communist leader comrade Kaypakkayas murder in the hands of the Turkish reaction, militant actions were carried out in Austria and Switzerland by the comrades of the Partizan Youth Initiaive / Marxist-Leninist-Maoist. Hoisting Banners with the slogan "İbrahim Kaypakkaya – lives with the Party", "Long live Maoism", "Long live MLM" and "The communist leader İbrahim Kaypakkaya is immortal" the comrades from Turkey, together with comrades of the Red Front Collective, the comrades went on lighting firework to draw further attention to the commemorial actions. The banners were put up in English, German and Turkish and slogans were shouted for the People’s War. We salute the great efforts made by the comrades! In the following, we document the videos and pictures of this actions:










We document the joint international declaration published on occassion of the 45th anniversary of the assasination of Ibrahim Kaypakkaya:

Long live Ibrahim Kaypakkaya in the 45th anniversary of his assasination!

It’s the 45th anniversary of the assasination of the representant of the international proletariat in Turkey, the founder of the TKP/ML (Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist) Ibrahim Kaypakkaya.

Comrade Ibrahim Kaypakkaya was only 24 when he was murdered by the severe tortures from the fascist Turkish state on the 18th of May. Kaypakkaya founded the TKP/ML when he was 23 years old.

This is an unofficial translation of a document which was sent to us. The correction is pending. Because of the role the Committee Red Flag is playing for the Reconstitution of the Communist Party in the FRG we publish this text. In the text there are some very expressive statements that we, as Author’s Collective behind, consider up to debate. However, they might break the law, which we don't want in any way.


Proletarians of all countries, unite!

Our Slogan is: Proletarians of all countries, unite! Our battle cry is: It’s right to rebel! Death to Revisionism!

To the International Communist Movement, to all proletarian revolutionaries in the FRG, to all revolutionaries, to all proletarian feminists, to all anti-imperialists.

Dear comrades, the Marxists-Leninists-Maoists in the FRG greet you. We greet your heroic struggles, your indomitable rebellion against imperialism, the reaction and revisionism. Full of joy, we observed this 1st of May, which was an expression of the urge for unity, the urge for progress, the urge for the most radical change of all prevailing conditions. The actions all over the world show that the communist’s fight for unity gains more and more strength - on the basis of Maoism, the fight against imperialism, reaction, revisionism and opportunism in all its forms and to serve the Proletarian World Revolution. Within the imperialist countries the struggle of the masses of the french proletarian youth in Paris and other parts of the country deserves special mentioning. It is a great inspiration to us. We want to express our great joy and pride to be part of the great and unexampled campaign for the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. We attempted and succeeded in developing this campaign in the FRG. This was expressed in that the Maoists, for the first time in decades, did a joined, uniform action with a common plan and a common goal.

In this campaign, the Maoists did a uniform action jointly, with a common plan and a common goal. Not solely on a general basis with some general political guidelines, but on a basis of high ideological, political and organisational unity. This has not been seen on this soil for a long time.

Comrades have brought the campaign for the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx to Jena, in the East. They did this with a smile on their faces, with the consciousness of victory, with optimism. They have done this in the east, were one always hears about the No-Go-areas controlled by the fascists, we one hears about the damage revisionism has done, because of which one supposedly can not do revolutionary politics there. There, young proletarian revolutionaries went to the streets with a smile on their faces and with pride their carried the 200 years Karl Marx campaign.

A massive contingent of revolutionaries went to the streets of Bremen, the poorest federal state in the FRG. They challenged and exposed the yellow, the social-fascist union fat cats. They declared in the face of the representative of the “GdP” [“Union of the Police”] during his speech: “German police – murderers and fascists!” And they did so as part of the 200 years campaign.

In Hamburg, the comrades have shown what it means to be with the oppressed yet again, with the comrades of the Parties and Organisations of the 3rd World.. The internationalists have asserted themselves physically against the Olaf Scholz-Youth, these soon to be union fat cats. They stood united despite any attempt of revisionism and opportunism to split the unity of the anti-imperialists. What also has to be mentioned is the police state that was imposed on Hamburgs working class districts in these days. In the very moment when the opportunists conducted the so called “Revolutionary 1st of May”, together with members of the senate, which came to be the most “peaceful 1st of May” in years, young proletarians im Hamburgs working class districts were harassed and threatened to be prosecuted for the sole reason, that they allegedly had been participating in an illegal demonstration and would have been masked. Their “crime”, according to German police, was to do activities in working class districts of Hamburg on the 1st of May.

There have been actions in other cities of the FRG as well. Mainly in the East and the South. The call for the Karl Marx campaign was spread and new contacts were made.

All of these things are great. Things, that fill us with joy. Things that show, how despite the witch hunt, how despite of the Sword of Damocles hanging over many comrades, because of the 1400 filed cases due to the struggles of July last year, and how despite of the 3300 open cases there is growing something new, which is also something very old at the same time. Somehow, the communist are back. They are present again.

This leads to a very important topic. The ideology of the proletariat was born here. And here it was negated for the first time. Marxism is a “German invention”, but so is revisionism. Bernstein, Kautsky - Germans. Only Germany was capable to create someone like Ebert or Noske. What is clear from the start: In Germany the contradiction has to be sharpened. There is no middle way in Germany, which Marx called the Prussian Smaller Germany, which was founded on the genocide of the Slavic people by the Teutonic Order. There is no “social peace”. In Germany there are two options: Subjugation or fight for life and death. We, who continue the work of Karl Marx on this soil, will not subjugate ourselves. Hence we always insisted that the party of the proletariat has to be a war machine. It has to be a machine of ruthless class war. Communists in this country have to follow this path from the start. This is not an easy way. It is not a way, which is appreciated by those, who want to go on wasting away in this system; those, who want to live in this rotten, dying and parasitic system. It is nothing for those, who want to keep on living as always, those, who want it comfortable, who want to arrange themselves with the situation.

Consequently resistance against this path has to develop from those, who want to bargain with the struggle of the peoples of the world, the struggle of the working class, for their own small-minded and lumpen interests because of “personal”, meaning egoistic, individualistic reasons. This is where right liquidationism originates from.

Our path is one. The path of Ayacucho. The path of the comrades, who left everything to go to the small villages, where nobody knew their names, and left everything behind, to join with the deepest and broadest masses. This is our path. Not the path of those, who seek fame, glitter and spotlight. The Maoists move in the shadow. And the liquidationists seek the spotlight. This brings us to the situation in Berlin.

Berlin is a very special city in the FRG. It is the most “cosmopolitan” city in the FRG, maybe in Europe, maybe even in the world. It has some specific characteristics. One is that it is basically a Prussian city. It is a symbol of the subjugation of the rest of Germany. But also it is both a city of an imperialist country and a former semi-colony of social imperialism. And a special remark has to be made: There is an extreme influence of Yankee imperialism and the myth of Westberlin as a “symbol of resistance” against the “Russians”. As a consequence, several characteristics of Yankee imperialism are extremely perceptible in Berlin. Especially in the question of gangs. Only with this in mind, one can understand what is happening in Berlin. Especially the sinister attack of the right liquidationists against the international proletariat on the streets of Berlin. Other comrades have described the background of right liquidationism in detail. We urge the comrades to read the article of Klassenstandpunkt from the 26th of Septemer again. We emphasize a very important point: The main critique of the comrades from Klasssenstandpunkt against the right liquidationists is, that they have never been able to articulate any criticism on the ideological or political line of the vanguard in formation in the FRG. When some of these people had been organized in structures of the revolutionaries, they did false self-criticism, intrigued and fled from ideological and political struggle. Then, violating every principle of Democratic Centralism they split the organisation in Berlin by means of intrigues and factionalism. Then they created confusion about the principles without engaging in open struggle within the movement in the FRG and on international level. Although they initially stopped all their public propaganda for months, they were absolutely incapable of giving any response to the criticism. They have shown that the only thing they are capable of is to whisper and make nasty remarks in Facebook groups, chats and commentary sections. Facebook - the most designated website for filing charges against oneself. And in the last months the transitioned open denunciationism. These guys claim to be “those from Berlin”. Funny. We have always been there. And yes, they have been more than us. But they have never been bold enough to engage with the deepest and broadest masses. They were not bold enough to go to Marzahn, because “everyone there is a fascist”. We went there. In the end, the fascists were fifteen. And the masses were with us. Berlin is theirs? There is not one political “structure” (and they aren’t a structure but a gang), which is hated as much as the so called Jugendwiderstand in the whole radical left in Berlin. Not because they did political struggle. Did these people ever go to a political event and engaged in political discussions? No group in the so called radical left in Berlin has ever perceived that this gang would have done a political debate in a public meeting. What have they done instead? They behaved like the worst and dirtiest lumpen, roaring they would be Maoists, and behaved like patriarchal posers. By means of poserism attempted to mobilise parts of the Arabic masses in Neukölln for an alleged struggle against the so-called Antideutsche. They did this in the only way opportunists know: Instead of bringing socialism to the masses, they tailed behind the masses, which is the core of the negation of communist politics. Our comrades have withstood in this difficult situation and we think our comrades deserve to hear this: We salute our comrades in Berlin, since the conditions in Berlin have been difficult. But the comrades withstood. And we are very proud of our comrades. The comrades upheld the red flag despite the sabotages, the underminings and the splits in Berlin. They conducted the campaign in support of the People’s War in India. They are those, who conduct the 200 Years of Karl Marx campaign in Berlin. And as such, they appeared on the 1st of May. They did something special: They understood how to win against the general counter revolutionary offensive. They have won against the campaign of the right liquidationists by insisting on Marxism. Because they insisted on the correct understanding of the construction of the three instruments. Because they understood the meaning of the front in this specific moment of the reconstitution of the Communist Party of Germany. They organised an international block on the DGB [trade union] demonstration with Turkish anti-imperialists. They sold the new organ of the revolutionaries in Germany, the Rote Post  [Red Post], in a quantity never seen before on the 1st of May. They achieved a front, which is obviously not the front under the undisputed leadership of the proletariat, but a front that opened up the opportunity to struggle for broad political space. Ofcause, and this is how a front in this situations necessarily has to be, the front has strong limitations, even antagonistic ones. But it is a front that expresses that the Maoists do politics, which means class struggle, and that every political force that is willing to engage with the Maoists has to do so on this level. This is an achievement. This is a success. This is a victory. This is what led to the sinister attack in Berlin on this 1st of May.

We had lots of struggles and confrontations with various groups and structures in our brief history. We experienced denunciation, betrayal and all sorts of provocation. All these “structures” which have been dominated by hooligans and drug dealers never attacked a single one of our comrades or friends openly. Even these lumpen had the political understanding what it means to engage with the Maoists in the FRG. The counter-revolutionary pile of garbage, which calls itself Jugendwiderstand, crossed all lines on this 1st of May. Our comrades participated in the 18 o’clock demonstration in Berlin with the mentioned front in the international block. There are very different forces active in this demonstration, which always mobilises around 10.000 people. It is not a demonstration led by communists. The people, who organise this demonstration are no people whom we seriously expect to challenge this state, to put it very diplomatically. But it is a demonstration, where the masses want to fight; where revolutionarists want to fight; where the communists have to be to bring the clear voice of the proletariat in this cacophony, this chaos. And this is what the comrades have done. They achieved a spontaneous participation of the masses. The enthusiasm of the masses about the banner of 200 Years Karl Marx meant, that our comrades need not carry it, but gave it into the hands of the masses. And one of them made a very expressive remark. When the comrades asked: Are you not tired, comrade, don’t you want to hand away the banner?, he responded: I will not give away this banner for all my life. This is the work of the Maoists in Berlin. This provoked the right liquidationists to deadly hatred. This breed of rats walked behind the rows of the police. The rows, which separate the demonstration from the pedestrians. Then the head of this gang gave the direct order to attack. They stormed through the rows of the police. Of course they have not been hindered by the reactionary state. They specifically targeted the masses of the International Collective Berlin. These wretches have threatened comrades under the operative leadership of their head’s minion. They told the comrades not to do activities in Neukölln, because it would be, in their neanderthalian phrasing, “our hood”. Then, before the masses could mobilise their answer, the rats retreated protected by German police. As one could expect, the German police did nothing against these people. In consequence: These breed of rats, who always fled from open ideological and political struggle, who never wrote any document of criticsm against the proletarian vanguard in formation in the FRG, started to attack comrades physically by mobilising lumpen thugs.

They have achieved what nobody did before. They are in bloodguiltiness. This debt is not only to us, but to the International Communist Movement. To all those who fight for the unity of the International Communist Movement on the basis of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, mainly Maoism, who fight against imperialism and reaction, revisionism and opportunism in all its forms to serve the Proletarian World Revolution. It is an attack against all revolutionaries and revolutionarists in the FRG, who, despite all differences, seek to aim the spear against German imperialism. It is an attack against every serious and consequent anti-imperialist, who is not smitten with dreams about the “German people” or with chauvinist dreams about “German South Tirol”. It is an attack on every female comrade, who fights against this patriarchal system; an attack on every comrade, who fights against the fascists and does not believe in German Blood Unity like this strasserist scum. It is an attack against everyone that stands with the oppressed and who will not allow some arch-Germans to tell what them what is best for them. And above all, it was a military attack. It was an act of war. This was not some “dispute on the street”. This was not a brawl in a bar. This was a targeted attack on a demonstration, where Maoists in the FRG brought the 200 year Karl Marx campaign on the streets. A military attack, which occurred with the permission and protection of German police. It was a crime which will never be forgotten.

Why did this attack happen? Why did these pumped up karate kids storm into a demonstration? Should this be considered a political confrontation? Should this be considered the proof that they are the most advanced in the struggle for the Reconstitution of the Communist Party? Obviously not. This is a proof of their total bankruptcy, a proof of impotence. It is the best, complete and most expressing confirmation of the correctness of our work. It proves that or comrades in Berlin do the best work under the most difficult circumstances. Let these guys come to Hamburg. Let them come to Bremen. Let them come to Hanover. Or some other areas. We don’t have to talk about Rondônia. Let them come. They attack us, where they consider us weak. Why? For us to hit back with full force. This is a political condition which is important here. They know how we work. Let’s be clear. If someone has a problem with our work last July, be that as it may. We did what we did. But this breed of rats have been tourists. Since we did real work and not tourism some people have open bills with us. Okay. This is between these people and us. We can deal with that. But that these Neanderthalians believe us to be stupid enough to walk into this police trap? They can forget it. Opposite to this bunch of evolutionary mishaps our comrades gave a promise: No matter what, we are not interested in the consequences for our body. Not because we have faith in the eternity of spirit. But simply, because we understood that our “being” is not the centre of the world. Our goal is a little bit simpler. Maybe even a little vulgar in the original meaning of the word. We want to serve the people.

The next issue: We is this bunch doing such an attack now? They do so, in order to hide their roaring failure. Nobody shall talk about the fact that their so called 13 o’clock demonstration was a roaring failure. Since they have begun this theater they are fewer and fewer. They get more and more isolated. The only ones who join them are lumpen and reactionaries, no matter what flags they carry. Of course they hate our comrades for that. We proudly declare: Yes, this is our fault. Yes, we countered your mobilisation. Yes, we argued against you. Yes, we denounced your political standpoints. Yes, we sold the Rote Post in Neukölln. And damn good on top of that. And yes, we sold the Klassenstandpunkt in every “left local”. And hence, people like you a little bit less. Yes, we are responsible for your defeat. We smashed some of your plans on other occasions as well. But this is something else. How have we do this? Have we done this by being the coolest? If one thing is characteristic for our comrades, it is that you do not recognize them. We are not good at this karate shit. Sometimes our voices are not heard by some people. But we are something different. Something more solid. It is called steel. The steel of Gonzalo.

What is the consequence of this? We summarize it like this: Under the conditions of the sharpest anti-communist witch hunt, which threatens hundreds of revolutionaries in the FRG with law suites,  the proletarian vanguard in formation progresses closely shoulder to shoulder with the communists all over the world.

Against this, there is right liquidationism, that is opposed to wanting a militarized party. They bargain with the struggles of the peoples of the world and, by now, are degenerated to the worst, most degenerated gang mentality, as it can only exist in Berlin.

The publication of the Rote Post, a newspaper that gives a voice and an ear to the deepest and broadest masses, made this bunch desperate. It demonstrates the power, the strength, the invincibility of the application of Maoism. When Maoists dare not to limit themselves to general declarations, but to grasp the real problems of the masses in a form and style, that allows the mobilisation, organisation and politisation - in perspective the arming - of the masses, then revisionism has mortal agony. An important result of the distribution of the Rote Post was the attack of three lumpen on two comrades, who sold the Rote Post at Sonnenallee [street in Neukölln]. Draped in thick gold chains and all other signs of lumpen culture, they wanted to forbid the comrades to sell the Rote Post in Neukölln. Both comrades, who do not take anabolic steroids, resisted with class position and determination. The lumpen claimed, our comrades would not sell anything of their dirt. The lumpen went to a nearby Hookah bar. In front of them, the comrades sold 5 Rote Post in 15 minutes. This karate gang believes they could threaten our appreciated and beloved comrades, when they bring the voice of our class to the neighborhoods. This is like the MRTA and brings us to the next point.

The MRTA learned, what it means to engage with Maoists. They should know something: Marx, Lenin, Chairman Mao and nobody as much as Chairman Gonzalo taught us about revolutionary violence. Who ever believes the proletarian vanguard in formation would afraid of some bodybuilding Thai Boxers, is miscalculating a bit. Our main enemy in this moment in political and organisational aspects is German imperialism. And German imperialism has things like Leopard IIs [German made tank]. No matter how many steroids our street fighters take, they will never reach this level. But we can handle that. These people think violence is standing face to face and pushing each other. They have not understood the meaning of guerrilla. And never did. Well, they will not be the only ones to be surprised.

This lot has created some confusion within the International Communist Movement, especially amongst the young forces who had no time to get the necessary experience yet. Business as usual. We don’t expect recognition. We understand very well that words have the weight of plumb or none. That is fine. But a communist must not have doubts between Marxism and revisionism. If someone wants to know our practice: Come to us! You are all invited. Go with us to every neighborhood. Tell us the neighborhoods you want to go to, we will come with you. You will see, that our comrades are one with the deepest and broadest masses. We don’t have a “hood” which is “ours”. But we have a class which is ours. More precisely, a class, that is us.

Comrades, we wrote a lot. Maybe too much. But sometimes it is better to write a lot. Sometimes it is better to eradicate all doubts. That is our goal.

Comrades. The Maoists in the FRG have been attacked by a lumpen gang. A crime without comparison in our history. These people are in bloodguiltiness. We always remember what our Peruvian comrades have taught us: Let the time have its time. And before we forget, there is another idiom of our Peruvian comrades: We have already measured and weighed them. And, as always, the masses will do the rest.

International comrades: Please take a clear stance regarding this matter. Not because we doubt you.  We know with whom you are. But only for the reason that this small detachment of men and women, in this rotten German state, carries your and our flag. So that we can have certainty that no matter what the imperialist states does to us, the people will exercise justice.

Revolutionaries in the FRG: Our “crime” is against the bourgeois state. We will make revolution in this country. We will crush the military-bureaucratic apparatus, which is called FRG. And we understand that the only way to do so is revolutionary war. Of course we also understood this is a little bit illegal. But this is the whole purpose of being a revolutionary, isn’t it?

Antiimperialists: Antiimperialism is not to turn one people against another. Antiimperialism is fighting against imperialism, bureaucratic capitalism and the reaction; against semi-colonialism and semi-feudalism. That is antiimperialism. Antiimperialism is not assuming chauvinist and racist positions against for one people to turn them against another. Antiimperialism is to always fight any chauvinism.

Proletarian feminists: Women comrades, to you, we have to say the least. You probably know these patriarchal pigs better than any of us. Nevertheless, comrades: Your flesh and blood has been attacked on this 1st of May. The punches, that hit the comrades, were punches against every woman in the FRG. It was punch of patriarchy, of poserism.

Antifascists: Those of you, who know us, know what we do. You know our practice and you know who we are. This German-nationalist strasserist gang has nothing to do with Maoism. Drive them away. Or, as we use to say: Antifascism is always practical.

Finally, comrades: The first of May 2018 was a victory against the primitiveness. A confirmation of our path. Good. We will follow this way. Because it went well, we now also have a problem, a sinister attack. To avoid all problems we ask our comrades, our friends, internationally and in the FRG, to make a clear statement in this matter. We especially ask those, who used to call these reactionary lumpen “Maoists in the FRG”. We also mention something else. Some of our friends are very fond of this internet stuff; Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp – wonderful! But they should also know something else: Whoever walks with this lot on the streets of the FRG should know, that we are not surgeons all the time.

Our class is one: The international Proletariat!

Our ideology is one: Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism!

Our leadership is one: The Communist Party!

Our path is one: People’s War!

Death to revisionism!

Our path is shining. His name is Gonzalo!

Committee Red Flag – FRG
