At this meeting a sum-up was made of the activities decided on at the previous Conference held in Ecuador, related to the publication of the journal "Unity and Struggle", Organ of the Conference; the successful holding of the Ninth Seminar, Problems of the Revolution in Latin America; the Trade Union Meeting of Latin America and the Caribbean held in the Dominican Republic; the development of the campaign of solidarity and for the freedom of the communist and revolutionary leader of Colombia, Comrade Francisco Caraballo and other actions designed to push forward the presence of the Conference of Marxist-Leninists in all regions.

The Conference was also able to analyze and emphasize the importance of the victory of the NO in the referendum on the Constitution of the European Union in France and the continuation of this victory in Holland. It considered the need for the Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations, together with the working class and the democratic sectors, to develop a firm opposition to the neo-liberal politics and to the attempt to construct an imperialist bloc in this part of the world.

We Marxist-Leninists denounce the aggressive and brutal politics of "fortress Europe", which is continuing to massacre immigrants from the countries of Africa as well as in Ceuta and Melilla, men and women who have left their homelands to try to escape the precarious situation that exists in their countries, due to the domination of imperialism.

One must emphasize the intensification and deepening of the crisis that the system of imperialist domination is undergoing and the generalization of the anti-imperialist struggles of the workers and peoples in Latin America, Africa, Asia; the rejection by the peoples of the world of the local reactionary wars, of the terrorist, criminal, and aggressive actions of imperialism, mainly U.S. imperialism.

The opposition of the working class and peoples to the neo-liberal, privatizing and anti-popular policies of the bourgeois governments in the service of world imperialism is very important, as is the need to oppose the organization and combat of the working class and peoples to these designs against humanity, pushing ahead the perspective of revolutionary social change that we Marxist-Leninists present as the way out of the general crisis of the world capitalist system.

The Plenary Meeting of the Conference expressed its solidarity with the heroic resistance of the people of Iraq against the occupation of the Yankee imperialist troops and their allies; it also warmly supports the struggle of the Palestinian people for their national rights and against the aggressions of Israeli Zionism, supported by U.S. imperialism. In the same way, the XI Conference rejects the war-mongering threats that the Bush regime has directed against Iran and Syria in particular, revealing its domineering and criminal nature.

The XI Plenary of the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations discussed and approved a Tactical Platform that serves as a general guide for the practical politics and actions of its member organizations and of the advanced sectors of the working class and peoples against imperialism, the monopolies and all world reaction, as a tool that should guide, in the specific conditions of each country and each moment of the revolutionary struggle, the actions that the revolutionary parties and organizations should push forward for the unification of the struggles against the enemies of humanity.

The Conference has decided to confirm the exclusion from its ranks of the Red Flag Party of Venezuela, since this organization has persisted in its activities in the service of imperialism and the reactionary sectors, which are opposed to the democratic and popular process that is unfolding in that country.

Furthermore, in this plenary meeting of the Conference, we have also agreed to a series of Resolutions and Tasks relating to the continuation, growth and ability in the struggle against imperialism, the bourgeoisie and world reaction, to continue in our struggles for the revolution and socialism.

We will meet again in another part of the world to confirm our commitment to continue in the struggle for the emancipation of the working class and peoples.
