The Communists of Volta Have Held their Congress

The Revolutionary Communist Party of Volta (P.C.R.V.) is happy to announce to the people that its 2nd Congress was held recently in our country.

Regarding the present world development, the development of the African continent and of Upper Volta, called Burkina Faso, in particular, the holding of this congress is a great victory which demonstrates splendidly the maturity, the political, ideological and organizational vitality of the P.C.R.V..

Indeed, it was following a vast movement of study and of intense and fruitful internal debates that the 2nd regular Congress of the P.C.R.V. was held. The Congress showed to a qualitatively higher degree the unity of thought, of will and of action of the P.C.R.V. by means of:

- the unanimous adoption of all the preparatory documents of the Congress and the report of activity presented by the Central Committee of the Party.

The 2nd regular Congress of the P.C.R.V. also discussed and adopted very important documents such as: "The present world development and the tasks of the Party," "Elements of reflection on the outcome of socialist construction," "Theses on the economic and social realities of Upper Volta, called Burkina Faso," the Program of the Party, the Statutes of the Party, etc.

- The unanimous election of the Central Committee charged with leading the Party until its next congress.

The P.C.R.V. thus reinforced itself on all levels (theoretical, political, ideological, organizational) and its positions more than ever as a genuine, internationalist, Marxist-Leninist party, determined to fulfill its historic mission, namely the conquest of political power for the building of socialism in our country and in the world. It is in this perspective that it assures the proletariat and people of our country of its determination to fight resolutely at their side in the important social struggles that are coming. It is in this view that it also assures the proletariat and the people of the world and their worthy representatives, the numerous fraternal Marxist-Leninist parties of Latin America, Europe and Africa that sent numerous warm messages to its 2nd Congress, that it will always fight for the practice of proletarian internationalism and the reconstruction of the Communist International for the world republic of Soviets.

Long live the 2nd Congress of the P.C.R.V.
Long live the P.C.R.V., party of revolutionary action
Long live proletarian internationalism
Eternal glory to Marxism-Leninism
