We document an english translation of a declaration of the Maoist Organization for the Reconstitution of the Communist Party of Colombia:

With great communist joy we celebrate the giant’s steps that the International Communist Movement has taken in the last years. The current combative May is a thermometer for this: through the whole world, we communists and revolutionaries have energetically and belligerently celebrated the First of May, international day of the working class, and the 5th of May, the bicentenary of the birth of our great master and founder of the proletarian ideology: Karl Marx.

In this milestone, and with great pride for having the comrades we have, we greet all the maoist parties and organizations throughout the world that carry People’s Wars forward or are preparing them, and advance in the task to reconstitute the Communist International with iron will. Times show what our dear Chairman Gonzalo had told before the world: maoism is starting to command the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution. And is doing so in the only possible way: combating imperialism, reaction, revisionism and all kinds of opportunism in an inseparable and implacable way.


In this occasion, we want specially to greet all the communists and revolutionaries who are coordinately carrying forward the international campaign of the celebration of 200 years of the birth of the great Marx and we point out, because of its significance, that it is being developed widely and forcefully in Germany, the place, where our great founder, in May 200 years ago, and his comrade in-arms Friedrich Engels were born; in Peru, cradle of the continuer of Marx, Lenin and Chairman Mao: Chairman Gonzalo, great leadership of the PCP and the People’s War, red beacon to the whole world, and in Brazil, a country of numerous popular masses, where the communists are creatively applying maoism and the contributions of universal validity of Chairman Gonzalo to the Brazilian reality are about to open new times for the revolution in Latin America and in the whole world.

Actions of the comrades in colombia on the First of May 2018

We proletarian revolutionaries know clearly that we can not take one step forward, if not by combating our enemies, because our purpose of being communists is to prepare and organize the class struggle to defeat the power of imperialism and the reaction and establish the dictatorship of the proletariat, through the only possible path: the revolutionary war. And facing this, not only the openly declared enemy will fight to annihilate us, but since the first moment, since the first attempts of re(constitution) of the Communist Party, we have the most dangerous enemies in the ranks of the people, disguised as revolutionaries, as communists: the revisionists and all kind of opportunists who, pretending to be “friends of the people”, traffic with its struggles, attack and betray the revolutionaries.

But for us, these attacks are coal that fuels the fire and with it the forge, and we take the achieved success as the indicator and far from debilitating us, it increases our conviction and the need of the militarization of the Party, because Chairman Mao already clearly taught us:

“I hold that it is bad as far as we are concerned if a person, a political party, an army or a school is not attacked by the enemy, for in that case it would definitely mean that we have sunk to the level of the enemy. It is good if we are attacked by the enemy, since it proves that we have drawn a clear line of demarcation between the enemy and ourselves. It is still better if the enemy attacks us wildly and paints us as utterly black and without a single virtue; it demonstrates that we have not only drawn a clear line of demarcation between the enemy and ourselves but achieved a great deal in our work.”

we send a felt and deep red greetings to our brother comrades of the Red Flag Committee in Germany and we congratulate them for the important actions in the last months: the heroic struggles of July and soon after the firmness to face the witch hunt unleashed by the imperialist old German state, the active participation in the First of May in the front with the revolutionaries and the flagging in many cities of Germany for the celebration of the bicentenary of the birth of the great Marx. All these actions are showing clearly, that “there is growing something new”, generating more hatred of our enemies who, powerless against the advancement of the class and the people, execute such coward actions to attempt to intimidate us, but far from succeeding, they instead increase the decision to combat them implacably, with class hatred, raising higher and firmer our flags and weapons against imperialism and all reaction, revisionism, opportunists. This way then, we see that the attacks dealt by the reaction, revisionism, opportunists and particularly the right liquidators recently show that we have not only drawn a clear line of demarcation between the enemy and ourselves but achieved a great deal in our work..

We condemn the sinister attack recently carried out in the streets of Berlin by the right liquidators against the proletariat of Germany, with we also assume as an attack against us ourselves as part of the international proletariat. We express solidarity with the communists and revolutionaries of Germany, we renew our oath to contribute on bringing justice for the proletariat and the peoples of the world through revolutionary violence. In the cruel but glorious struggle for communism, against imperialism, reaction and opportunism, always count on us, comrades, and with all the communists of the world, therefore, we are ready and committed to give our lives for the Party and the revolution. Be fully sure comrades, that we communists and revolutionaries will bring justice, like you have told “Let the time have its time”. We will defend our flag and the task to put it each time higher with our lives, paying whatever cost be necessary until we conquest power in each country and establish communism over the Earth.

Finally we reaffirm the greeting and pride to have the comrades we have, red soldiers of Chairman Gonzalo. We unite in your slogan:

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