From La Forge
Organ of the Communist Party of the Workers of France
November 15-30, 1993
We are publishing the text of the declaration of a multilateral meeting of Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations that has just been held in Europe. We will have the opportunity to return to the content of the discussions.
The Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations participating in the multilateral meeting held in November, 1993, in Europe, after having reviewed the international situation and discussed the problems of the international communist movement, declare:
The great changes that have taken place in the last years have turned the contemporary world upside down, bringing along with this a recomposition of the social, economic and political forces. Despite their importance, these changes have not modified the nature of the epoch: we continue to live in the epoch of imperialism and of the proletarian revolution. The contradictions between capital and labor, between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, between imperialism and the peoples, have an effect on the development of society. Events confirm the principle of the class struggle as the motive force of history.
The disappearance of the USSR has put an end to the contradiction between the two superpowers, the Unit States and the USSR, and has led to an increased sharpening of the inter-imperialist contradictions. Other imperialist powers are entering into this competition and the struggle for a redivision of the world is expressed in the formation and reformation of blocs, alliances and inter-imperialist agreements of a commercial, economic, political and military character. These contradictions manifest themselves in the new conflicts and new aggressions against the oppressed peoples and nations, they can in the future lead to a world-wide conflagration.
A great general crisis is shaking the present capitalist world. The supremacy of capitalism, proclaimed with great pomp, is nothing but a huge farce. The workers and the peoples, principal victims of the crisis, are suffering the consequences of recession, inflation, unemployment, wage freezes, the taking back of social gains, the brutal aggression of capitalism.
The objective conditions of the revolution, the necessity of the social revolution and the perspective of socialism are the questions of the day. They demand from the communists a determined and persistent action in order to assume in reality the leading role of the revolutionary party of the proletariat.
The blows struck by the counter-revolution, the aggressive anti-communist campaign and the reverses suffered by the workers and the peoples will inevitably lead to new class confrontations, to a rise in the revolutionary struggle.
The work of ideological diffusion conducted by reaction and the revisionists among the working class and the peoples, poses for the Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations the urgent necessity of redoubling their efforts for unity, to take up the analysis and discussion of the new situations and problems, to give a Marxist-Leninist response, and to become in reality a real alternative in each of their countries and on an international scale. This task is inseparable from the uncompromising struggle in defense of Marxism-Leninism and to unmask and combat revisionism and opportunism in all its forms. As Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations created in the process of the struggle against modern revisionism, with the PLA led by Enver Hoxha and other Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations of the world, we reaffirm the Leninist thesis according to which revisionism is an international phenomenon, a product of imperialism and it continues to present a great danger for the parties, for the revolutionary process and for the building of socialism.
We parties and organizations affirm our will to intensify the struggle against capitalist exploitation, against imperialist domination, for the international solidarity among the workers and peoples, for the organization of the workers' movement and for the real practice of proletarian internationalism.
We are continuing our work to reinforce the international communist movement, on the basis of the principles formulated by Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin, to succeed, on the basis of open, sincere discussion and ideological struggle, in surmounting our differences, our errors and our limitations to reach new levels of ideological and political unity.
We invite the other Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations, that for different reasons are absent from this meeting, to take part in this work and to meet again with us soon for a general conference of the international Marxist-Leninist communist movement.
