In Reims, France, militants of the TKP/ML have hung a banner for the freedom and defence of the health of Chairman Gonzalo with the slogan "Let's defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo!" above a central highway. A statement by the militants said that solidarity actions for the defence of Chairman Gonzalo's life and for his freedom will be intensified.

On Friday last weekend, the Partizan held rallies in front of the Peruvian consulates in Vienna and Zurich under the same slogan. In their speech they said, among other things:

Chairman Gonzalo has been the undisputed leader of the Peruvian People’s War, which held great hopes for the oppressed peoples of the world from the 80s to the early 90s. He became one of the architects of the formulation of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, disseminating Chairman Mao’s contributions to Marxism-Leninism on an international scale.

In the capture of Chairman Gonzalo, the CIA was partnered with the fascist Peruvian state. This attack of imperialism both in the person of CIA and the USA reveals the fear of people’s wars and the struggle for communism. Likewise, those who thought that they would humiliate Chairman Gonzalo by bringing to the court in an iron cage at the time of his imprisonment, were surprised when he turned this position into a communist propaganda arena.“
