The Ten Declarations of the Maoist Communist Party of China (MCPC)

22 March 2009

 

一、强烈抗议中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团对我党实行秘密追剿的声明!

1. We strongly condemn the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party and its policy of secretive suppression of our party!

2008年12月26日, 我党分别在北京、上海等大城市闹市区散发了“宣告中国人民对中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团造 反有理”的《 告全国人民书》,在“老虎”的屁股上狠狠地摸了 一把!随后在网络上和其它一些城市也进行了宣传。我党的这次革命行动,对中国共产党修正主义叛 徒统治集团造 成了强烈的政治冲击,有力地打击了中国共产党修 正主义叛徒统治集团的嚣张气焰。我党的《告全国人民书》是号召人民起来推翻中国共产党修正主义 叛徒统治集团 、开展一场中国无产阶级反复辟大革命运动的号 角;是号召人民共同声讨中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团的罪行、剥去中国共产党修正主义叛徒统 治集团的伪装 、打一场文攻武卫的人民革命理论战争的信号弹。

On 26 December 2008, our party gave out the pamphlet "To all the people of China" that declares that "the peoples of China have the right to rise up against the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party" in the central districts of cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. By doing this we have "dared to touch the tiger's ass"!

Afterwards we engaged in more propaganda online and in other cities. This revolutionary action of our party has resulted in a strong political wave against the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party, and managed to beat down the arrogant air of the revisionist ruling bloc.

This is the clarion call for a great revolutionary movement among the Chinese proletariat against capitalist restoration; this is the signal flare to mobilise the people to strike against the crimes conducted by the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc; to peel away the false skin of the revisionists, and to engage in a people's revolutionary war through both words and actions.

我党的《告全国人民书》不仅在国内引起了广泛关注,极大的唤醒和鼓舞了中国无产阶级,而且造成 了强烈的国际 政治影响。“自由亚洲电台”、“美国之音”等宣 传媒体纷纷作出“中国出了个中国毛泽东主义共产党”的报道。国内外反动派对我党《告全国人民书 》的亮剑顿时 感到如临大敌,纷纷跳出来对我党进行攻击并为统 治集团出谋划策,什么“震惊!反胡拥毛,毛子毛孙成立了中国毛泽东主义共产党”,什么“不彻底 清算毛泽东养 虎成患”,什么“强烈要求把毛泽东像从天安门上 摘下来”,什么“要求中国当局脱掉共产党外衣”,什么“共产党若不迅速剿灭中毛共党,必将死于 其手”等等, 真是鸡飞狗跳炸开了锅……

The pamphlet of our party "To all the people of China" not only received great attention within China, and to a great extent served to wake up and stimulate the Chinese proletarian class, but it also triggered a lot of international political responses. "Radio Free Asia" and "Voice of America" all made reports about us. Reactionary forces both inside and outside of China immediately felt threatened by our pamphlet, and started to attack our party and offered strategies to the ruling regime of China.

They used slogans such as:

"Shocking, going against Hu Jintao in favour of Mao Zedong, the sons and grandsons of Mao have created the Maoist Communist Party of China"

"Without completely getting rid of the legacy of Mao we will surely be breeding problems for the future"

"We strongly propose that the portrait of Mao be removed from Tiananmen"

"We demand that the Chinese government discard its communist coating" and

"If the CCP does not destroy the MCPC fast, it will surely die in its hands"...it's almost as if chickens and dogs are flying apart!

中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团表面上装聋作哑,实际上却迅速指使警方对我党展开了不遗余力的 阻止和追查, 他们勘察散发传单的地点,调集当天的监视录像,在互联网上顺藤摸瓜,传讯审问可疑人员,企图将 新生的我党扼 杀在摇篮之中。

 

对此,我党向中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团提出强烈抗议!我党强烈要求立即停止对我党进行的 秘密追剿!

The traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party pretends to not hear anything, but in practice they have began to utilise police forces to pursue our party. They are keeping the locations where we hand out our pamphlets under careful supervision, and are checking the CCTV images of the days when we are active. Through the internet police they are pursuing suspicious personnel. They want to destroy our party while it is still in its infancy.

We strongly condemn the actions of the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party!

We strongly demand that all secretive suppression of our party by the regime completely cease immediately!

我 党奉行“君子动口不动手”的民主政治诉求原则,同时也奉行“小人动手,老子也动手”的革命铁律 。我党的《告 全国人民书》及此《十大声明》,就是要动员全国 人民行动起来关心国家大事。我党坚决反对中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团实行法西斯白色恐怖! 如果中国共产 党修正主义叛徒统治集团一意孤行,硬是要把中国 人民引入腥风血雨之中,那么,我党只有奉陪到底!直到打得中国没有一个敢于恶毒攻击毛主席的反 革命分子为止 !直到打得中国没有一个敢于走资本主义道路的修 正主义叛徒分子为止!

Our party follows the democratic political principle of "the virtuous person uses their mouth not their hands", but we also follow the iron revolutionary law of "if the petty reactionaries use force, we shall do likewise".

The pamphlet "To all the people of China", as well as the Ten Declarations here, shall act to mobilise everyone in China to start considering the big events of our country. We firmly oppose the utilisation of fascistic "white terror" by the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party! If the revisionists stubbornly carry on with their actions, and drag the people of China into bloody wind and rain, then we will surely accompany them to the very end! We shall not stop until every single anti-Maoist reactionary has been removed from China! We shall not cease our struggle until every single traitorous revisionist that dares to embark on the capitalist path has been utterly destroyed!

二、感谢人民群众理解与支持的声明

2. We shall give thanks to the understanding and support shown to us by the people

毛主席指出:“真正的铜墙铁壁是什么?是群众,是千百万真心实意地拥护革命的群众。这是真正的铜墙铁壁,什 么 力量也打不破的,完全打不破的。反革命打不破我 们,我们却要打破反革命。”我党的诞生和《告全国人民书》的发表,得到了绝大多数知情群众的拍 手称快。我党 所接触到的群众不仅为我党的诞生感到欢欣鼓舞, 而且在精神、物质方面都给以了有力的支持。特别是在我党短短三个月的党史中即不得不经历了党内 一次大的路线 斗争之后,更加得到了解真相的群众的理解和支 持,原来没有打算急于入党的同志,现在积极要求入党了;原来没有打算对我党给予赞助的朋友,现 在给予大力赞 助了……

Chairman Mao once said:

"What is the real 'bronze wall and iron shield'? It is the masses, the masses who wholeheartedly support the revolution. This is the real 'bronze wall and iron shield,' something that cannot be destroyed by any kind of force. The counter-revolutionaries cannot destroy us, but we shall destroy them."

The creation of our party and the release of the pamphlet "To all the people of China" have received the support of the majority of the masses who know what this really meant. The masses who got into touch with our party not only felt happy at our party's creation, but also offered a lot of support both spiritually and materially. Especially ever since the first great political line struggle in the first three months of the short history of our party, more and more people who learned the truth about us started to show their understanding and support. Those who did not wish to join our party at the start, now actively wished to join; those who did not decide to support our party at the start, now started to offer a lot of help...

 

对此,我党向理解和支持我党的人民群众致以崇高的革命敬礼!感谢人民的理解!感谢人民的支持!

有些群众担心我党的进一步活动会受到敌人变本加厉地迫害,实际上,我党越是活动频繁就越是能得 到人民群众的 响应与支持,而得到人民群众的响应与支持越是广泛和强烈,我党的安全系数也就越大。

For this, we shall offer a revolutionary salute of the highest degree to all those who understand and support our party! We shall give thanks to the understanding of the people! We shall give thanks to the support of the people!

Some people are concerned that the continued activities of our party will cause more retaliations by the enemy. In fact, the more active our party becomes, the more support it will get from the masses, and the more support it has, the safer our party will be.

毋 庸置疑,我党的存在和我党的行动已使统治集团感到如坐针毡了,他们的确是恨不能将我党一口咬死 、一把掐死, 可是敌人总是习惯性的过低估计革命人民一方的能 力和力量,总是习惯性的错误判断革命人民一方的智慧和勇气。由于我们这个党是符合广大人民群众 和大多数中国 共产党普通党员愿望的;由于我们这个党是在人民 群众中汲取了充分的养料才裂石穿云、横空出世的;由于我们这个党的根是深深地扎在人民群众当中 的。所以,一 旦反复辟革命形势到来,他们就丈二和尚摸不着头 脑了——分不清楚到底有多少人和有哪些人是能够跟着他们反革命的,更分不清楚到底会有多少人和 会有哪些人也 是要准备革他们命的。所以,他们奈何不了我党也 就不足为奇了。

Without doubt, the existence and actions of our party has caused the ruling bloc to feel uncomfortable. They hate the fact that they cannot destroy our forces in one go.

But the enemy by habit tends to under-estimate the power of the revolutionary people, and by habit tends to wrongly judge the wisdom and courage of the revolutionary masses. Since our party fits in with the wishes of the masses of people and the majority of the ordinary party members of the Chinese Communist Party, because our party has only emerged through taking in nutrients given out by the masses, our party has deep roots within the people.

Therefore, when the anti-restoration revolutionary situation arrives, our enemy would be confused - they would not be able to know how many people and whom they can trust on to follow them on the route towards counter-revolution, and furthermore they would not realise exactly how many people and whom would be prepared to overthrow them in a revolution. Therefore, there is no suprise in the fact that the ruling regime cannot really do much to our party.

三、中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团是中国人民的头号敌人的声明

3. We declare that the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party is the top enemy of the peoples of China

历 史已经证明,修正主义者上台,工农就下台;修正主义者掌握政权,无产阶级就丧失政权;修正主义 者搞“改革开 放”,广大劳动人民就吃二遍苦、受二茬罪。“改 革开放”给中国人民的造成的一切灾难,都是由中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团一手造成的。世界 上,由于帝国 主义的侵略给被侵略国家造成的一切灾难,中国共 产党修正主义叛徒集团也难逃其责!所以,中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团是中国人民的头号敌人 。资产阶级右 派分子也是我们打击的对象,但是打击的重点还是 中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团。

History has shown that if the revisionists get into power, then the workers and peasants shall be cast down. If the revisionists control the government, then the proletariat would lose their political power. If the revisionists engage in the so-called "opening-up reforms", then the labouring masses of the country will be exploited for the second time.

All of the disasters that have been brought upon the country and our people by the so-called "opening-up reforms", are directly caused by the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party. Globally, the Chinese revisionists also share responsibility for the disasters imposed upon countries that have been invaded by imperialist powers!

Therefore, the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party is clearly the number one enemy of the peoples of China. The capitalist right-wingers are also attacked by us, but our main enemey is no doubt the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party.

毛主席指出:“否定马克思主义的基本原则,否定马克思主义的普遍真理,这就是修正主义。”同时 还指出:“修 正主义者抹杀社会主义和资本主义的区别,抹杀无产阶级专政和资产阶级的区别。他们所主张的,在 实际上并不是 社会主义路线,而是资本主义路线。”资产阶级在 党内的代理人邓小平、江泽民、胡锦涛就是这样的反革命修正主义分子。他们都抹杀社会主义同资本 主义的区别, 把社会主义同资本主义混为一谈,而在行动上完全 推行资本主义路线;他们都抹杀无产阶级专政同资产阶级的区别,把无产阶级专政同资产阶级混为一 谈,而在行动 上完全推行资产阶级的那一套。一句话,他们都反 对社会主义革命和无产阶级专政。

毛主席教导我们:“修正主义上台,就是资本主义上台。而且是最坏的资本主义,是法西斯主义;如 果有一天共产 党不为人民服务了,那么人民就要起来打倒他!”这里的“他”,指的就是中国共产党修正主义叛徒 统治集团。

Chairman Mao once said:

"To negate the basic principles of Marxism, to no longer acknowledge the universal truths of Marxism, such is called revisionism."

At the same time he points out:

"Revisionists deliberately try to white-wash the differences between socialism and capitalism, and dampen down the fundamental distinction between the dictatorship of the proletariat and the bourgeois. What they propose is not really the socialist path, but the capitalist path."

The representatives of the bourgeois class within the party, such as Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, are all counter-revolutionary revisionists. They wish to white-wash the distinction between socialism and capitalism, to confound the two together; but in their actions they completely pursue the capitalist line; they all deliberately destroy the fundamental difference between the dictatorship of the proletariat and the dictatorship of the bourgeois, and in action they are completely capitalist. In one phrase, they all oppose socialist revolution and proletarian dictatorship.

 

Chairman Mao teaches us:

"The rise to power of the revisionists means the rise to power of the bourgeoisie. And indeed it is the worst kind of capitalism, it is like fascism. If one day the Chinese Communist Party no longer serves the interests of the people, then the people should rise up to overthrow it!"

Today the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party is indeed in power, and therefore should be overthrown.

 

四、中国毛泽东主义共产党是无产阶级革命政党的声明

4. We declare that the Maoist Communist Party of China is a proletarian revolutionary party

中国毛泽东主义共产党是马克思、列宁、毛泽东主义武装起来的无产阶级革命政党,是毛泽东时期中 国共产党和毛 主席遗志的忠实继承者,是无产阶级先进分子所组成的朝气蓬勃的革命先锋队组织。

The Maoist Communist Party of China is a proletarian revolutionary party armed with Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, it is the faithful heir of the will of Chairman Mao and the Chinese Communist Party during the Mao Zedong era, and it is a vibrant revolutionary vanguard organisation composed of the advanced layers of the proletarian class.

中国毛泽东主义共产党诞生于2008年11月28日。中国毛泽东主义共产党的诞生,标志着新一代中国共产党 人在行动上与中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团实行 了最彻底的决裂;标志着中国第二次社会主义革命时代来临;标志着中国人民反复辟大革命斗争的序 幕正式拉开!

The Maoist Communist Party of China was formally created on 28 November 2008. The creation of the Maoist Communist Party of China is the sign that the new generation of Chinese Communist Party members have now completely broken with the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc; it is the sign that the era of the second socialist revolution has arrived in China; it is the sign that the great revolutionary struggle against capitalist restoration by the peoples of China has formally began!

中国毛泽东主义共产党的基本纲领,是彻底推翻中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团和复辟了的官僚、 买办剥削阶级 ,用毛泽东主义战胜修正主义;用社会主义社会战胜资本主义社会。党的最终目标,是实现共产主义 。

The basic political line of the Maoist Communist Party of China is to completely overthrow the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc within the current Chinese Communist Party and the restored bureaucratic-capitalist class, so that Maoism shall gain victory over revisionism, and socialist society will win against capitalist society. The ultimate objective of our party is to achieve communism.

中 国毛泽东主义共产党现阶段的基本方针,是遵循毛主席的无产阶级革命路线,以马克思、列宁、毛泽 东主义作为党 的理论基础和行动指南,广泛动员和组织人民群 众,紧紧依靠和相信人民群众,有组织、有步骤、有方法地在第一次社会主义革命的基础上、在中国 共产党修正主 义叛徒统治集团的当权中、在官僚资本主义复辟的 环境下,进行第二次社会主义革命。这次革命的第一个任务,是夺回广大人民群众失去的一切权利, 重新建立无产 阶级专政。完成这个任务的方法,是开展誓死推翻 中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团的反复辟大革命运动,打一场文攻武卫的人民革命理论战争并夺取 彻底的胜利。

The basic method of the Maoist Communist Party of China is to follow the proletarian revolutionary line first laid down by Chairman Mao, and use Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as the theoretical basis and the general strategic guideline. We will widely mobilise and organise the people, and rely on the power of the masses.

In a methodical and organised manner we shall engage in China's second socialist revolution on the basis of the first socialist revolution and under the conditions where bureaucratic capitalism has been restored and the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party has obtained political power.

The first mission of this revolution is to win back all of the rights that the masses of people have lost, and thereby re-establish the dictatorship of the proletariat.

The method through which this political mission can be accomplished is to initiate a great revolutionary movement against the capitalist restoration of the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc within the Chinese Communist Party, and to engage in a people's revolutionary war through both words and actions, and in the end acquire complete victory.

中国毛泽东主义共产党2009年 的中心工作,是制造舆论,武装思想,发展组织,开展斗争。即大造革命舆论,用毛泽东主义武装全 党、全军和全 国人民,积极发展党员队伍和党的各地组织,积极 募集革命活动经费,切实开展对敌斗争和配合人民群众各种形式的维权斗争,为逐步到来的反复辟大 革命运动高潮 奠定基础。

The central work of the Maoist Communist Party of China in 2009 is to engage in public propaganda, to ideologically arm the masses, to develop our organisations, and to engage in concrete political struggles. We shall use Maoism to arm the entire party, the entire army and the entire people of China, so that we can actively develop a cadre and the various regional branches, and collect the funds required for our revolutionary work. We will engage in struggles against our enemy and support the various struggles for basic rights conducted by the masses of the people. Through this we will lay down the basis for the height of the revolutionary movement against capitalist restoration that will gradually arrive.

五、坚定第二次社会主义革命大方向的声明

5. We declare that we will firmly embark on the road of the second socialist revolution in China

毛 主席明确指出:“修正主义上台,也就是资产阶级上台。”毛主席还明确指出:“无产阶级和资产阶 级的矛盾,用 社会主义革命的方法去解决”,中国共产党修正主 义叛徒统治集团是资产阶级的变种;是帝国主义的奴才和走狗;正如毛主席指出的那样:“资产阶级 影响的存在, 是修正主义的国内根源,屈服于帝国主义的压力, 是修正主义的国外根源。”中国无产阶级同中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团的矛盾就是无产阶级同 资产阶级的矛 盾。而解决这个矛盾的方法就是进行反复辟的社会 主义革命。

As Chairman Mao clearly stated,

"when the revisionists get into power, that's the same as when the capitalists get into power".

Mao also clearly said:

"the antagonism between the proletarian and the bourgeois classes need to be resolved through socialist revolution".

The traitorous revisionist ruling bloc in the Chinese Communist Party today is just a variation of the capitalist class. They are the running dogs and servants of imperialism.

 

As Chairman Mao correctly pointed out:

"The presence of capitalist influences is the fundamental domestic cause of revisionism; to bow down to the pressures of imperialism is the external cause of revisionism."

The basic antagonism between the Chinese proletarian class and the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc within the Chinese Communist Party today is equivalent to the antagonism between the proletarian class and the bourgeois class. The way to resolve this contradiction is to engage in a socialist revolution against capitalist restoration.

 

第二次社会主义革命的概念,是源于对毛主席领导的二十七年社会主义革命做出认真总结的基础上、 是源于对新的 社会主义革命内容及策略 的仔细梳理和研究的基础上、是源于我党的诞生和在思想上、理论上、行动上具备了进入一个新的社 会主义革命历 程条件的基础上得出来的。故称之为第二次社会主 义革命。

The concept of the second socialist revolution is formulated on the basis of the conscientious summarisation of the 27 years of socialist revolution that Chairman Mao personally led, as well as through the careful consideration and research of the contents and strategies of the new socialist revolution. It originates from the formal creation of our party, and the objective conditions that are now mature enough in terms of ideological, theoretical and active elements for us to embark on the road of a new socialist revolution.

Therefore it is called the second socialist revolution.

第二次社会主义革命的大方向,是坚定中国毛泽东主义共产党的领导,坚定贯彻党的路线、方针、政 策,坚定走社 会主义道路,坚定用社会主义制度代替资本主义制度,坚定无产阶级对资产阶级的斗争和专政,坚定 建设一个真正 的社会主义现代化强国,坚定为实现共产主义而努力奋斗。

The general political direction of the second socialist revolution is to firmly follow the leadership of the Maoist Communist Party of China, to firmly carry out the political line, methodology and policies of our party, to firmly engage in the struggle to replace the capitalist system with the socialist system, to firmly engage in the proletarian political struggles against the bourgeois to eventually establish a dictatorship of the proletariat, to firmly focus our efforts to build a real modern, prosperous and strong socialist state, and to firmly and diligently struggle for the genuine realisation of communism.

只 有坚定这个大方向,才能胜利完成历史赋予我们的光荣使命。只有坚定这个大方向,才能实现毛主席 要求的:“做 到统一认识,统一政策,统一计划,统一指挥,统 一行动”。否则的话,就算我们进了火葬场再从冒烟筒里飘出来继续争论,也解决不了“统一认识” 这一个问题, 其它的问题就更不用说了。所以,坚定这个大方 向,其实就是坚定了一条符合毛泽东主义的、正确的、在资本主义复辟条件下的无产阶级革命的总路 线。

Only through firmly holding onto this general direction, can we victoriously achieve the glorious mission that history has bestowed upon us. Only by firmly holding onto this general direction, can we realise what Chairman Mao required of us:

"United in consciousness, united in policy, united in planning, untied in leadership, and united in action".

Otherwise, even if we come out of the crematorium as ashes and continue to embark on endless arguing, it would be to no avil, as we cannot solve the problem of how to become "united in consciousness", nor can we become united in the other areas. Therefore, to firmly hold onto this general political direction, is to firmly hold onto a general political line that fits in with Maoism and is objectively correct under the present conditions of capitalist restoration in China.

 

六、 开展中国人民反复辟大革命运动的声明

6. We declare that a great revolutionary movement against capitalist restoration among the peoples of China will be enacted

根 据毛泽东主义的道理,要战胜中国官僚资本主义的大复辟,就必须针锋相对的搞一场中国无产阶级的 反复辟大革命 。即开展一次中国人民反复辟大革命运动,打它一 场文攻武卫的人民革命理论战争!不如此我们就不能推翻中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团;不如此 我们就不能重 新建立无产阶级专政和建立起新的社会主义制度; 不如此我们就不能实现毛主席、周总理等老一辈无产阶级革命家的伟大遗志;不如此我们就对不起千 千万万为无产 阶级利益奋斗而牺牲的革命烈士的在天之灵;不如 此我们就不能为国际共产主义运动作出中国无产阶级应该作出的贡献!

According to the principles of Maoism, to defeat the great project of capitalist restoration of Chinese bureaucratic capitalism, we must engage in an anti-restoration great revolutionary movement of the Chinese proletariat to match against it. We must enact a great revolutionary movment against capitalist restoration among the peoples of China, and to engage in a people's revolutionary war in both words and actions!

Without doing this we shall not be able to overthrow the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party; without doing this we cannot re-establish the proletarian dictatorship and the new socialist system; without doing this we cannot realise the wills of the older generation of proletarian revolutionaries like Chairman Mao and Primier Zhou; without doing this we cannot honestly face the thousands of revolutionary martyrs who have given their lives for the interests of the proletarian class; without doing this we cannot contribute properly to the international communist movement as Chinese proletarians!

中国人民反复辟大革命运动的性质,是毛泽东主义同现代修正主义斗争、失权的 中国无产阶级同复辟了的官僚买办资产阶级斗争、社会主义社会同资本主义社会斗争的性质。这场大 革命的特征, 是在修正主义当道、复辟了的官僚资本主义环境 下、在人们各种混乱思想状态下自下而上进行的一场人民革命理论斗争。斗争的矛头,是直指中国共 产党修正主义 叛徒统治集团和死心塌地的反革命右派分子。斗争 的方法,是从武装人们的思想入手,逐步升级,直至达到目的。而打好这场战争的锐利武器就是—— 毛泽东主义。

The basic nature of the great revolutionary movement against capitalist restoration by the peoples of China is the struggle between Maoism and modern revisionism, the struggle between the Chinese proletarian class that has lost its political power and the bureaucratic capitalist class that are in power, the struggle between socialism and capitalism.

The feature of this great revolution is to have a bottom-up people's revolutionary theoretical struggle under the present conditions of ideological confusion among most layers of the population. The spearhead of this struggle is pointed towards the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party and the die-hard counter-revolutionary right-wingers that support them.

The method of this struggle is to first arm people ideologically, and then gradually increase in levels, ultimately resulting in complete victory. And the sharp weapon that is to be used to win this war is Maoism.

毛主席指出:“帝国主义和一切反动 派都是纸老虎。修正主义者也是纸老虎。”表面上看这个统治集团控制着一切,又是法律;又是军队 ;又是武警; 又是公安;好像强大的不得了。实际上,由于它政 治上的反动性和生活上的腐败化,已经变得非常虚弱和不堪一击。中国毛泽东主义共产党的诞生,其 实就预示这个 统治集团的死亡。

Chairman Mao pointed out:

"Imperialists and all other reactionary forces are nothing but paper tigers. Revisionists are also paper tigers."

Superficially it seems as if this revisionist ruling bloc controls everything: the law, the army, the armed police, the police force; it is as if they are powerful beyond recognition. But in reality, due to the reactionary nature of its politics and the corrupt state of its life, it has already become very weak. The emergence of the Maoist Communist Party of China indeed foreshadows the death of this ruling bloc.

 

我党在这个阶段不 强调军事斗争而非常重视理论斗争,是符合客观实际的,站在军事的角度来看,也是符合避敌之强, 博敌之弱的革 命军事原则的。我们目前的精力和行动,应当主要 放在促使人民反复辟大革命的热情在全国各地普遍高涨起来这个方面,把人民发动起来,使人民团结 起来,形成广 大人民群众自觉自愿的行动。只有这样做了,才能 继续往下一步进行。

At this stage our party focuses on theoretical struggle rather than military struggle, this is a very realistic approach. From a military perspective, our current plan also fits in with the revolutionary military principles of "avoiding the strength of the enemy, while striking at its weakness". Our efforts and actions now should be mainly focussed on mobilising and motivating the people around the country to engage in the great revolution against capitalist restoration. We need to mobilise the people, unite the people in solidarity, so that the masses of the people will voluntarily act. Only through this can we continue to the next step.

毛主席曾说文化大革命是一次认真的演习。今天看来可以确定,那次的“认真的演习”,就是为我们 这次的地地道 道的实战而准备的。

Chairman Mao once remarked that the Cultural Revolution was a conscientious military exercise. Today it is clear that this "conscientious military exercise" has prepared us for our real struggles today.

当 前的国内外形势已经非常有利于中国革命。世界资本主义经济危机在进一步加剧,中国官僚资本主义 根本无法独善 其身。统治集团的经济统治和政治统治受到了双重 动摇。面对革命形势,统治集团已经开始用许愿的方法、用拆东墙补西墙的方法、用小恩小惠的方法 让步于人民; 开始用加大拉拢、控制军队和公安的力度来维护他 们摇摇欲坠的统治了。

At present, the domestic and international environment is very conducive to the Chinese revolution. The economic crisis of global capitalism is continuing to deepen, and there is no way for the Chinese bureaucratic capitalists to pull out of it themselves. The economic and political rule of the ruling bloc has been shaken from both sides. Against the rising revolutionary situation, the ruling bloc is already utilising ways to satisfy the people in a limited manner to appease the public, as well as strengthening their control on the army and the police to protect their wavering rule.

展望未来,随着广大人民群众革命觉悟的不断提高,以维护他们自己利益的经济斗争会不断上升到为 改变社会制度 的政治斗争高 度上来;我党和其它革命组织会迅速扩大;无数具有政治远见、大公无私、脚踏实地、富有牺牲精神 又有斗争艺术 的革命领袖形人物会脱颖而出和涌入我党;一切形 形色色的假左派分子会在革命的实际斗争中被甄别出来并被淘汰出局;所有的党内外机会主义、教条 主义者,因舍 不得丢掉的小资产阶级思想的作怪,会在他们意想 不到的斗争形势面前黯然神伤,甚至堕落成为革命的可耻逃兵或叛徒;只考虑自己在党内的身份、位 置的沽名钓誉 者会随着革命形势的发展越来越被动而彻底靠边稍 息;“满腔的热血已经沸腾,要为真理而斗争”的中国毛泽东主义共产党人则会始终奋战在反复辟大 革命的第一线 ,捭阖纵横、百折不挠、一步一个脚印地带领人民 把誓死推翻反革命修正主义统治集团的伟大斗争进行到底!

Looking ahead towards the future, as the revolutionary consciousness of the masses continue to improve, the economic struggles to protect their own interests will continue to rise to the level of political struggle to change the social system. Our party and other revolutionary organisations will increase in power, and countless revolutionary leaders with political foresight, a great sense of altruism, an ability to achieve concrete objectives, a willingness to sacrifice themselves for political goals, as well as a great understanding of the art of struggle, will flock into our party, and various pseudo-leftists will be weeded out through real revolutionary struggles. The various opportunists and dogmatists both within and outside the party, due to their unwillingness to part with their petit-bourgeois world view, will become depressed when faced with the unexpectedness of the struggle situations, to the extent that some may even degenerate and become shameless traitors of the revolution. Those who only care about their status within the party would become sidelined more and more as the revolutionary situation continues to develop. But the genuine members of the Maoist Communist Party of China will sing the Internationale and firmly stand on the front lines of the great revolution against capitalist restoration. No setbacks or problems would stop their advance. They shall, one step at a time, lead the people to fight the great struggle against the counter-revolutionary revisionist ruling bloc to its complete conclusion!

不管全世界共产主义运动中有没有推翻修正主义执政党的先例,我们都绝不重蹈前苏联的覆辙,我们 一定要在“红 旗”落地的前一天完成我们的使命!我们一定要向毛主席报告:主席,我们胜利了!

Regardless of whether or not there has ever been a prior instance in the history of world communism in which a revisionist ruling party has been overthrown, we shall not follow the demise of the former Soviet Union, we shall complete our struggles one day before the "red flag" drops down onto the ground! We shall certainly report to Chairman Mao: "Chairman, we have won!"

七、毛泽东主义是战胜中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团的强大思想武器和理论武器的声明

7. We declare that Maoism is the powerful ideological and theoretical weapon one can use to gain victory over the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party

毛 泽东主义是马克思、列宁主义划时代的继承和发展,是毛泽东思想的全面概括和系统总结。毛泽东主 义把马克思、 列宁主义提高到了一个崭新的高度,是无产阶级革 命理论的第三个里程碑。毛泽东主义是中国毛泽东主义共产党的灵魂和根本,是抵御党内各种资产阶 级思想和机会 主义的伟大法宝,是战胜中国共产党修正主义叛徒 统治集团的强大思想武器和理论武器。

Maoism is the epoch-making continuation and development of Marxism-Leninism, and the comprehensive and systematic summarisation of Mao Zedong Thought in general. Maoism has raised Marxism-Leninism to a new height, it is the third great milestone in the history of the proletarian revolution. Maoism is the soul and fundation of the Maoist Communist Party of China, it is a great artifact to defend oneself against the various types of capitalist thoughts and opportunism within the party, and it is the great ideological and theoretical weapon that one can use to acquire victory against the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party.

毛主席指出:“代表先进阶级的正确思想,一旦被群众掌握,就会变成改造社会、改造世界的物质力 量。”我们掌 握这个武器的目的,就是要“变成改造社会、改造世界的物质力量”,我们我们掌握这个武器的目的 ,不是要弹劾 反革命政府,而是要推翻反革命政府。

Chairman Mao pointed out:

"The correct ideologies that represent the advanced class, once they have been absorbed by the masses, would then become the material force to transform society and transform the world."

The purpose for us to hold onto this ideological weapon, is to let it become the material force to transform human society and the natural world. We do not use our weapon to merely shake the counter-revolutionary government that is in power today, but to completely overthrow the counter-revolutionary government.

 

用 毛泽东主义武装人民的思想,我们的斗争就必然胜利,不用毛泽东主义武装人民的思想,我们的一切 革命斗争就只 能停留在肤浅的表面和口头上而不能取得胜利。所 以,把毛泽东主义这个锐利武器发放的人民群众手中,利用一切可以利用的形式,采取一切可以采取 的办法,把深 揭狠批统治集团的檄文和我党的主张传递到全国各 地,带领人民群众共同向统治集团发起全面的、持久的、猛烈的、一波又一波的进攻是每一个党员和 已经在思想上 入了党的革命积极分子的光荣任务!

To arm the people's thoughts with Maoism, our struggles would definitely become victorious; without using Maoism to arm the thoughts of the people, all of our revolutionary struggles could only ever stop at the stage of superficial slogans and would never gain actual victory. Therefore, we must give the sharp weapon of Maoism to the people, and use every method we can use to spread the information that tells people about the truth of the ruling bloc to every region in China. We shall lead the masses of the people to strike together comprehensively, continuously and fiercely against the revisionist ruling bloc. This is indeed the glorious mission of every party member and supporter!

八、扫除左派一切错误观点,为无产阶级反复辟大革命运动开辟道路的声明

8. We declare that we shall remove all the erroneous thoughts among the left, so that a road to the great revolutionary movement of the proletarian class can be opened up

如 何对付资本主义的大复辟,左派从来就争执不下,长期以来对解决复辟问题,始终是处在对“杀猪杀 屁股,各有各 的杀法”的“杀法”研究上。诸如什么“重上井冈 山,建立根据地,武装夺取政权”,什么“对于资本主义复辟当局的斗争已经不是“反对修正主义” 问题,而是与 官僚资本主义的斗争”,什么“复辟已经完成了, 现在的革命就不是反复辟了”,什么“我们进行的革命应该是民主主义革命”,什么“到农村去,走 集体主义道路 ”,什么“到基层去交朋友,一变二、二变四、四 变八……”,什么“展开合法斗争,促使中央左转”,什么“武装割据,攻城略地”,等等等等,革 命策略可谓让 人眼花缭乱、不胜枚举。

How to counter the great restoration of capitalism, the various tendencies within the left in China have continued to argue without resolution. For a long time the research into how to solve the problem of capitalist restoration was limited to debating "the various means to kill a pig". Ideas that have been raised include "go back to Jinggang Mountain, re-establish a revolutionary foothold, and acquire political power through guerrilla warfare", "the struggles against the capitalist restoration of the ruling bloc is not just a matter of "fighting against revisionism", but the struggle against bureaucratic capitalism", "the capitalist restoration has been completed, today's revolution is no longer anti-revisionist", "our revolution now should be a democratic revolution primarily", "we should go to the countryside and establish collective enterprises", "we should form friendships among the grassroots layers, and increase our numbers", "we should engage in struggles within the framework of the law, and make the central government turn left", "split up the country through armed force and directly conquer cities" etc. The sheer number of various "revolutionary strategies" that have come forth is numerous enough to make people dizzy.

所有这些观 点虽然在愿望上是好的,但实际上却是片面的、僵死的、形而上学的。有的是从根本上否认中国共产 党修正主义叛 徒统治集团的客观存在;有的是对现代修正主义者 的复辟手段视而不见;有的是片面强调某一点而忽略本质和主体;有的是根本就不懂得阶级性质和阶 级斗争。正如 列宁指出的那样:“他们都自命为马克思主义者, 但是对马克思主义的了解却迂腐到了极点。马克思主义中有决定意义的东西,即马克思主义的革命辩 证法,他们一 点也不懂得。”他们甚至不能理解毛主席“代表先 进阶级的正确思想,一旦被群众掌握,就会变成改造社会、改造世界的物质力量”的伟大教导是什么 意思。更有甚 者连这次革命的性质都弄不清楚,这岂不是十分荒 唐和可笑吗?

Although all of these views are right in their wishes, objectively they are all partial, dogmatic and metaphysical. Some fundamentally reject the fact that the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc within the Chinese Communist Party exists at all; some do not see the restoration methods of modern revisionists; some partially emphasise on a particular point but neglect the whole and the essence; some don't even seem to have a basic understanding of class nature and class struggle.

As Lenin once pointed out:

"They all call themselves Marxists, but their understanding of Marxism is degenerate to the extreme. The determining factor of Marxism, the revolutionary dialectics of Marxism, they have no understanding of at all."

These people don't even understand the essential meaning of the great Maoist teaching:

"The correct ideologies that represent the advanced class, once they have been absorbed by the masses, would then become the material force to transform society and transform the world".

Some don't even grasp the essential nature of this revolution, is this not very stupid and laughable indeed?

 

根据毛泽东主义的道理,马克思主义活的灵魂在于具体的情况作具体分析,这句话会说的人很多,真 正会应用和发 挥的人却极 少。机会主义和教条主义者就是把马列毛主义的理论当作抽象的、狭隘的公式到处生搬硬套,他们拒 绝研究矛盾的 变化和矛盾的特殊性,具体讲就是不研究中国官僚 资本主义是怎样演变的,不承认中国官僚资本主义的特殊性是修正主义形式的。只看现象,不看本质 。只抓一点, 不及其余。只顾历史经验,从不应变创新。看见是 个瘸子便要去治人家的腿,却不知是由中风而起,不知中风不愈,其腿永瘸的道理。所以,呼喊着重 上井冈山的, 至今山上空无一人,嚷嚷着去基层“变”朋友的, 至今也未能“变”出个名堂,走集体道路的南街村倒是名声在外,却撼不动统治集团一根毫毛,挡不 住大复辟一泻 千里。凡此种种,最终也只能是“躲躲闪闪,就像 猫儿围着热饭兜圈子。(列宁语)”

According to the principles of Maoism, the living soul of Marxism is the ability to have a concrete analysis of concrete situations. Many people understand this, but few can really apply it. Both opportunists and dogmatists treat Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as abstract and narrow formulas to impose on all sorts of situations. They refuse to investigate the transformation of contradictions and the special circumstances of different contradictions. In this instance they do not consider the actual history of how bureaucratic capitalism came to be what it is like today, they do not recognise that the special nature of the bureaucratic capitalists in China is that they are in the form of revisionism. They only look at the phenomenon, but not at the essence.

They only grasp a singular point, but not the rest. They only care about historical experience, but have no ability to be creative according to the circumstances. When they see a lame person they want to treat his/her leg, but they don't see that this is caused by a stroke, and do not recognise that as long as the stroke is not treated, the leg will forever remain lame. So despite shouting about going back to Jinggang Mountain, to this day there isn't a single person there; despite some friends calling for people to go to the grassroots layers to enact changes, to this day there has been no real changes at all. The names of collective enterprises like Nanjie Village are indeed quite famous, but they cannot even harm a single hair of the revisionist ruling bloc, nor can they block the great waterfall of capitalist restoration. All of these, are in the end what Lenin called "dodging this way and that, like a cat around a hot meal".

修正主义叛徒统治集团与官僚资本主义的关系是因果的关系。“因”的问题迎刃而解了,“果”的处 理也就势如破 竹了。如果对“因”没有正确认识,对“果”也就无从下手。所以,如果我们直接处理“果”而不察 其“因”,不 仅不能从一团乱线中抽出它的头来,而且也不符合 事物发展的客观规律。所以,轻视修正主义统治下的革命理论斗争是极其错误的,是严重违背马克思 主义的革命辩 证法的。

The relation between the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc and bureaucratic capitalism is the relation between cause and effect. If the "cause" is solved, the "effect" will be solved directly. If there is no correct understanding of the "cause", then there is no way to solve the "effect". Therefore, if we directly sort out the "effect" but don't examine the "cause", then not only can we not find the thread within a confused mass of strings, we are not doing things according to the objective laws of their development either. Therefore, to under-estimate the importance of theoretical revolutionary struggles under the rule of revisionism is very incorrect, and is a severe violation of the revolutionary dialectics of Marxism.

另外,政治上的折衷主义、 思想上的自由主义、理论上的教条主义、形式上的机会主义、行动上的山头主义等等,都是横在中国 无产阶级反复 辟大革命运动前面的绊脚石。这些障碍和那些错误 观点,实际上都极大地阻碍着反复辟大革命运动的顺利开展,它们的存在只能使中国无产阶级反复辟 大革命运动被 无情地拖延。如果能将这些不利因素转为有利因 素,整个中国左派队伍心往一处想,劲往一处使,三年之内搬到这个统治集团又有何难?厨师刀下拍 黄瓜——小菜 一碟嘛。所以,所有号称毛泽东主义者的左派同志 和我党党员,都有责任从政治思想上、革命理论上、实际行动上高标准要求自己,自觉扫除我们自己 的一切错误观 点和障碍!只有这样,才能为反复辟大革命开辟道 路!只有这样,才能迈开人民推动历史前进的有力步伐!

In addition, electism in politics, liberalism in thought, dogmatism in theory, opportunism in form, and sectarianism in action etc, are all like stumbling blocks in front of the great revolutionary movement of the Chinese proletarian class against capitalist restoration. These stumbling blocks and those mistaken views, all objectively obstruct the positive development of the anti-restoration revolutionary movement. Their existence can only cause delays in the revolutionary movement. If we can transform these negative influences into positive ones, so that the entire left in China think along the same lines and utilise their efforts in the same direction, then what difficulties would there be to take down the current regime within the next three years? It would be as easy as a chef cutting up cucumbers. Therefore, all leftists who consider themselves Maoists and the members of our party have the responsibility to set a high standard for themselves in the areas of political thought, revolutionary theory and actual practice, and self-consciously sweep away all of the mistaken thoughts and obstructions that block our way! Only through this, can we open up a way for the great revolutionary movement against capitalist restoration! Only through this, can we embark on the road of historical progress by the people!

九、中国共产党修正主义叛徒统治集团非下台不可的声明

9. We declare that the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party must be cast down

毛 主席指出:“马克思主义这个真理是不可抗拒的,人民群众总是要革命的。”随着反复辟大革命形势 的发展,修正 主义统治集团内部矛盾也会快速的发生微妙的变 化,这种变化会不断的被催化而发生作用。革命的风会吹进军营,造反的意识会在军队掀起波澜。每 一个军人都会 思考自己的立场——倾向革命的军人是大多数,倾 向反革命的只是可怜的一小部分。军队的分化会成为必然。负隅顽抗的修正主义头子和反动军官会逐 渐的被孤立起 来。统治集团头子最后的选择无非是——要么是在 全国罢工、罢课、罢市中被“罢免”而下台,要么是在无产阶级的文攻武卫中被人民革命的力量推翻 而下台,要么 是在人民革命舆论压力下被动谈判而下台。无论是 哪一种下台方式,总之是非下台不可。这是毫无疑义的!

As Chairman Mao pointed out:

"The truth of Marxism cannot be resisted, the masses of the people will certainly engage in revolution."

As the great revolutionary situation against capitalist restoration continues to develop, the internal conflicts within the revisionist ruling bloc will also gradually change. This kind of change is caused by external factors and will gradually begin to have an effect. The wind of revolution will be blown into the army barracks, and the consciousness to rise up would sweep across the army. Every soldier will think about his/her own political stance -- the majority will side with the revolution, only a tiny minority will go to the side of counter-revolution. The division within the army would become a necessity. Obstinate revisionist leaders and reactionary officers within the army will be gradually isolated. The heads of the ruling bloc will either be "fired" from their positions by the waves of strikes across the country by workers and students, or be directly overthrown by the revolutionary forces of the proletarian people, or be forced to engage in passive negotiations with the people's revolution and be pressurised to resign. Regardless of how they would go, they must go, of this there is absolutely no doubt at all!

 

我党在这反复辟大革命的第一时间里就奉劝了反革命统治集团头子,现在还是那句老话,“识 时务者为俊杰”,早下台早主动,晚下台就被动,越晚下台就越被动。如果通过谈判而下台,则是最 明智的选择, 可谓是早交权早解脱,早交权早安生。这样不仅可 以为自己留下一条极尽体面的生路,而且也为自己的后代、家族留下一条奔向光明的出路。如果统治 集团王八吃秤 砣,死不改悔而大开杀戒,这样的话,罪孽就大 了,自己不仅会留下千古骂名而且会给自己的家族带来毁灭性的灾难。至于无产阶级,无非是经历一 次新的血与火 的革命历炼和战斗洗礼而已。

Our party, in this first phase of the anti-restoration great revolutionary movement, calls on the heads of the counter-revolutionary ruling bloc to resign voluntarily. As the old Chinese saying goes: "The truly capable and virtuous understand the requirements of the times." The earlier you voluntarily come down, the more active you are. The later you come down, the more passive you become. If you resign as a result of negotiation, then it's the most wise choice, by giving up your power early you have let the pressure off yourself early, and can then live in peace. This way not only can you leave yourself with a relatively respectable path ahead, but also you leave behind a way towards the light for your descendants and families. If on the other hand the ruling bloc refuse to repent and engage in mass slaughter, then your crimes will increase by a thousand-fold, not only would this leave a bad name for a thousand generations on yourself, but it would also bring about the complete destruction of your clans. As for the proletarian class, it would just be experiencing another round of revolutionary baptism through blood and fire.

Our detailed programme does not stop here.

We believe that in the not-so-distant future, the people will work for faith and honour, their thoughts and lives will experience a thorough transformation. The banal and corrupt thoughts and lifestyles of the bourgeois class will be completely abandoned, and a new socialist society will emerge to become an example for the historical development of all humanity. A new modern, socialist, prosperous, and powerful state will firmly rise up in the eastern world and become an "oriental pearl" in the real sense.

Dig in.

    I wonder how many politburo old-timers regret the post '77 turn and secretly support this tendency.

  • Guest (Timo)

    Thank you for posting this, very interesting. However on a quick search I was unable to find anything about the MCPC, does anyone know of any other pieces of information on the MCPC? Is the pamphlet “To all the people of China” availible anywhere and or is it all the same points as in this piece? I understand this is all very recent and may be difficult to find information on, I just figured I would ask.

  • Guest (celticfire)

    A specter is haunting China...

  • Guest (slipoutside)

    This brings a hopeful tear to my eye

  • Guest (Saul)

    Timo: I would imagine this comes from the demographic concerned with <a href="/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_New_Left" title="this" rel="nofollow"> group.

  • Guest (BJ Murphy)

    Timo, there's only a couple of us that are available to connect to them. I've tried myself, but no luck so far. Iseul has a certain connection to them, I know. And according to him, the group's members are around 10,000, with many more supporters - all within the rural lands of China. They're really underground &amp; the CPC have made sure no word is brought about pertaining on their existence.

  • Guest (boris)

    In terms of the historical summation that is implicit in the document, it's interesting that it upholds Mao and Zhou by name and says nothing about the Four. And the only reference to the GPCR is relatively elliptical.

  • Guest (( ))

    Great development, I hope them the best. However their document is very arduous to read because of its repetitive phrasing, perhaps it sounds different when read in Mandarin. A communist China with such productive forces as they currently possess would be a death-blow to capitalism and a great reassurance for comrades in South Asia. However with the little knowledge I have of Chinese affairs this seems like a rather distant prospect.

  • Guest (Walter Lippmann)

    Evidently these people, to the extent that they exist in China, are looking to be arrested and imprisoned for a long time. Imagine what it means politically when a group, supposedly based in the PRC writes:

    "We declare that the traitorous revisionist
    ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party
    is the top enemy of the peoples of China."

    They don't seem to be trying to win over anyone who might think differently from them when they write:

    "Every counter-revolutionary right-wing element
    who has risen up against the second socialist
    revolution and who opposed the proletarian
    dictatorship will be forcefully re-educated
    under supervision. Those counter-revolutionary
    elements who have an especially malign and
    reactionary attitude will be suppressed
    without mercy!"

    And when they write with evident pride of their
    being reported on by Radio Free Asia and by the
    Voice of America, one can only scratch ones head
    in bewilderment.

    What do the editors of Kasama find so interesting
    from people who say they are glad that the Voice
    of America and Radio Free Asia are promoting them?

    Who takes this kind of posturing seriously???

    Respectfully submitted.

  • Guest (Tell No Lies)

    Walter,

    I can speak only for myself. I find this interesting but thats not the same as saying that I think its a real group or that is a significant one or that it has a sound political line. I think that its simply too early to tell, but that its something that deserves our attention.

    As for the VOA and RFA, I imagine that these are listened to by lots of people in China simply interested in information from outside of official channels and that while many are rightly skeptical of the motivations behind these services that they are viewed as valuable anyway. Within such a context, gaining the attention of VOA and RFA is important to reaching a broad dissident audience and that drawing attention to their ability to do so is useful for recruiting.

  • Guest (shakya bijaya)

    after long year back again i got information about MCPC, i'm very glad, The real communist are active againist the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc.

  • Guest (entdinglichung)

    on the question of using VOA and RFA: even in the early seventies, the CPC and the Chinese state were part of some very strange "tactical alliances" which was then legitimized with the <i>"Theory" of the Three Worlds</i>

    TNL speaks for me here as well as himself. We have no idea whether this is the expression of an actual organization.

    The person promoting this communique says they claim to have 10,000 members, and the communique itself wants to imply they are going toe-to-toe with the government in some ways. But there is literally no way of evaluating this, and no reason to believe it at face value.

    There was a similar declaration that emerged earlier in China (around 1980) at the time of the trial of the Four (who opposed the capitalist restoration). But nothing was heard from that group over the following years.

    Similarly, there was an anti-revisionist statement of Soviet Communists that circulated in the 1960s, but nothing much was heard from such stick-with-Stalin forces until after the collapse of the Soviet Union twenty years later.

    Again: Kasama posts this because it is of interest, and because it <em>may</em> prove to be of significance.

    After a long gap i got a good news from chaina. The chinese people have raised the red flag ahainst the chinese revisionst. Go ahead comrades . We the Maoist from Nepal, the people of the country of Mt EVerest are always with you.

  • Guest (Otto)

    I re-posted this because if it is true it represents a serious fraction within the established party. If not, then it is just another Maoist pointing out that Maoism is not dead in China.

  • Guest (land)

    Without having carefully read this over carefully I will not comment on anything in particular.

    But I will say that I and probably alot (millions?, thousands?)
    of people in the world have been waiting for a regrouping of revolutionaries in China for along time.

    So this is very possibly something to celebrate and in any case something to take seriously.

  • Guest (Rishi Raj Baral)

    Thanks to Kasama, for making us available this excellent document, and hope we can have repeatedly this type of documents, not only documents, but the activities of our chinese comrades, in the future also .

  • Guest (Green Red)

    Their emerging in China is inevitable and even if they do not last, there will be others since, in practice there is no other way to get out of the mess made. Late Mao had rightly stated that when revisionist get into power there are the same as a capitalist state so, there is no space for reform.

    And even if all these hard working communists get arrested and killed, new ones will come sooner or later.

    But in a way, i feel they have - in a way - a harder battle in front of them than comrades in Nepal and India.

    Anyhow, salute to them all.

  • Guest (Guan Hanqiang)

    The document discusses very little of what's actually going on in China today that affects workers and farmers. What about the HuKou system? The 2008 Labor Contract Law? The New Socialist Countryside reforms? Minimum wage increases?

    There's a lot of strange things being said here that is really disconnected from reality and what most other Chinese leftists have said. Mobo Gao, for one, is a supporter of Cultral Revolution politics, but acknowledges that a new "people's war" is hardly realistic and that many workers see corruption as a local problem rather than directly caused by the central government. Gao has also written about the tax cuts and social programs implemented by the CCP that have helped the poor immensely.

    MCPC holds the line that "The capitalist right-wingers are also attacked by us, but our main enemey is no doubt the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party." They have the idea that local "Red Barons" and their capitalist backers are less of a threat than central government bodies, which is simply turning reality on its head. Most Chinese citizens can tell you that most concerns about corruption are local. As Gao has pointed out before, mass mobilizations have had a hard time organizing against corruption and land grabs because it is difficult for the central government to enforce constitutional rights.

    The studies done by Hu Angang and Wang Shaoguang have shown that local government income has grown through corruption and central government spending has actually declined relative to growth in recent years. The easiest way to weaken local power of corrupt officials is from the top, which the CCP has done by abolishing most local taxes in rural inland areas (as well as more extreme measures like executions). I find it bizarre that the MCPC is out of touch with this simple truth that most Chinese workers and farmers have overwhelmingly embraced.

    Still, it's an interesting development.

    While the analysis in this communique is refreshing--especially its lack of emphasis on "foreign domination" of China that some Maoists in China have raised--according to a reliable Chinese source, the MCP of China was disbanded in 2009.

  • Guest (Rishi Raj Baral)

    If it was disbanded there is no question of its authenticity.

  • Thanks for that information, Ka Frank.

    It would not surprise me to learn that this is/was a very small group. And it <em>would</em> surprise me to learn that any estimates of 10,000 members were true).

    I suspect that there is not actually a distinctive and unified Maoist party operating yet in china, but probably a great many small local primitive groups (like this one) with diverse political complexions, summations and programs. (We have heard from or about others since the coup in 1976.)

    And then beyond that, there are (as is well documented) groups and trends within the ruling CCP that are (on way or another) critical of the governments directions and generally have a desire to return to various social welfare guarantees and to previous anti-corruption practices (without actually having a revolutionary perspective of overthrowing the current government and capitalist society).

  • Guest (Rishi Raj Baral)

    Comrade Mike E, I agree with you . We got the news, not only the news, we had two articles also published in A World to Win and Revolunationary Worker, in the name of CPC-ML. It was the matter of 1980 . After that we have not got any information and activities of that organisation . But we hope this will not do so.

    That brings up the question of who should be considered Maoists and who shouldn't. Is Deng Xiaoping considered a Maoist because he continued to support the Afghan mujahideen and the Khmer Rouge against the USSR? Are parties that don't uphold the Three Worlds Theory today anti-Maoist? Who decides?

    Leftists in the PRC are probably among the world's most adamant defenders of Mao Zedong's politics and historical contributions, often providing valuable insights from on-the-ground political work. So then how can we turn around and disassociate most of the Chinese New Left from Maoist politics? All of them certainly do organize to fight the same corruption and exploitation brought about by market reforms that non-Chinese Maoists are always criticizing, but they're pushed aside as simple well-meaning-but-misguided "liberals" because their conclusions don't fit into the ideologies of other Maoist parties. This is simply trying to twist facts to conform to dogmatic ideas, not seeking truth from facts.

    This dogmatism comes out when people attack things like the New Left's defense of the CCP. Dogmatists are more than happy to agree with them on criticism of the PRC they share, but refuse to acknowledge original analysis. MCPC echoes most of the western mainstream left, so no surprise they have been praised here for their "purity". Yet, as I talked about in detail in an earlier post above, their imported dogmatism doesn't fit the PRC's economic and social reality at all.

    New Leftists are also accused of merely being social democrats or welfare statists rather than Maoists because they admit some of the opening-up policies were positive. What exactly is the argument for that? Who in the world would want to live in the isolationist societies that anarchists and other ultra-leftists advocate, where all the technology already developed by the industrial nations would have to be duplicated from scratch? Most people would never want that - does that mean most people can never be socialists?

    In short: we have a lot more to learn from the New Left than they do from any narrow definition of "true Maoism" or any other armchair ideology.

    Also to imply that the primary problem for workers and farmers in China today is "local corruption" is indicative of a reformist populist perspective that does not even touch on the question of class power.

    How was the integration of the Chinese bureaucrat bourgeoisie with world imperialism positive?
    Why would we want to duplicate all the "technology already developed", a socialist society should not prioritize Ipads and fiberoptics over long term human and ecological health.

    I have never seen much value in endlessly debating who is the real Marxist (or Maoist) and who isn't. Far better (imho) to indicate worldviews and lines associated with different forces, and excavate where each one of them leads. I.e. to discuss politics and line, not label.

    The Maoist movement broke into rather antagonistic factions in the mid-1970s -- from within that large diverse movement came several different currents -- some of them loosely associated with the warring groups within the Chinese Communist Party itself (and others emerging as nationalist currents that often went over to pro-Soviet politics for pragmatic reasons).

    It is hard to debate the <em>fact</em> that Deng Xiaoping emerged holding power from within the Maoist party of China (after having been on the long march and in national leadership through almost the whole history of modern China).

    But I would argue that Deng represented the negation of both Maoism and socialism. There is nothing Maoist about him. He was the leader of capitalist restoration, and throughout his work within the party (starting from what I can tell in the 1950s certainly) represented a line of"modernization" that the Maoists called "bourgeois democrats turned into capitalist roaders." In other words, he was part of those forces that argued for using the Chinese anti-feudal anti-imperialist revolution of 1949, the state, the party and the army to build a powerful unified modern China -- largely along capitalist lines.

    Put another way, Deng was one of the greatest counterrevolutionaries in history -- and his reversal of Chinese socialism was one of the most bitter setbacks that the people of the world have suffered in all of history. Not a small thing to say.

    And it is the kind of verdict that concentrates many larger questions of line and politics: If someone doesn't grasp that socialism has been overthrown, and capitalism has been restored -- then on some level this reveals rather radical differences in understanding of <em>what socialism is.</em>

    * * * * * * * *

    How do we understand the way new revolutionary currents emerge in a situation like china today? Where do they come from? How do they look as they are congealing?

    They emerge (necessarily and organically) out of the existing body politics (often with very confused and confusing reform politics at the beginning).

    If you study the emergence of a new radical left in the U.S. (in the 1960s) you can see how (in its beginning stages) it had all kinds of illusions (part of the way with LBJ in 1964, or "participatory democracy" in 1967, or a flirtation with C. Wright Mills anti-managerial analysis, etc. etc.)

    Mass radical movements emerged out of something else, something that was (previously) much less radical -- and it is a real process, full of contradiction, and irony and confusion.

    So you can't judge new mass movements by some mechanical standard.... "They think XXX or YYY, so they are no good." By that standard, each of us was "no good" until the day we stumbled on the views we hold today. It is a bit undialectical.

    New movements believe all kinds of silly things, have all kinds of illusions, and then sort out and divide through experience and struggle. The space created by such new movements are <em>themselves</em> accomplishments -- and the use of such spaces for further radicalization is a process we need to appreciate. Otherwise we will be unable to appreciate real and important developments as they happen, but simply denounce everything for not (already!) agreeing with us. And we will find ourselves in a sectarian mindbubble where pessimism and self-importance feed on each other -- and where we are unable to see (let alone influence) the wellsprings of new radical life.

    Iran was another example: where some people chose to judge the anti-theocratic uprisings (very very narrowly) by the various establishment forces that were (formally) heading much of that uprising. But that is undialectical. Every mass movement for radical change emerges (at first) with a rather conservative leadership, and in a complex relationship with "splits in the ruling establishment." that's how openings for radical movements emerge... and from such openings there emerge real struggles (among awakening and newly-connecting networks of people) over what to demand, and what to fight for.

    To get to the issue we are exploring: Where are the new, positive forces in China?

    I don't think (for a second) that they are to be found among the aging generals and state officials of the "conservative hard-liner" kind, who in some cautious way try to hold the banner of "the early Mao." The record and politics of those people are clear -- and it has had little to do with radical upheaval, genuine socialism or change. They are simply trying to hold their party and state together (by waving a tattered flag of anti-corruption and threadbare social benefits).

    If you want to find out where a New China is emerging... look to those fighting the system. Those rebelling in the countryside, the mines and factories. And to those who want to overthrow this corrupt, cynical and oppressive state party. Look to those who are going to prison for opposing the government.

    And looking at those forces, you will see a very highly contradictory array of forces (including quite a few openly western and openly pro-capitalist forces, especially among the more privileged). And that is typical of new radical movements, and quite a few of them will not choose to walk a radical, revolutionary or socialist road (but will reveal themselves, ultimately, as partisans of a continued capitalism). But it is from among the rebellious forces, that new revolutionary life will emerge (or else it will not emerge at all).

    And those who think that the most promising forces are the so-called "conservatives" or "hard-liners" or supposedly "pro-Mao" within the higher circles of current party cadre -- will find themselves misreading developments and trends over and over. This is an oppressive party, and has been for two generations. There is nothing revolutionary about it. there may well be forces at its grassroots that can and will play a positive role. But this is not (imho) a party with a revolutionary current at the higher levels.

    Worker Antagonism, that's exactly the chauvinistic attitude I just talked about.

    <cite>Also to imply that the primary problem for workers and farmers in China today is “local corruption” is indicative of a reformist populist perspective that does not even touch on the question of class power.</cite>

    That is not my own opinion. That is the conclusion drawn by people doing firsthand research and on-the-ground political work in China. You call it reformism, but the vast majority of ordinary people in China today know it as reality. Corruption is indeed local-level, and anti-corruption campaigns from the top have created openings for mass mobilizations from below. The central government's policies in fighting corruption in recent years have helped workers and farmers immensely. I cannot stress that enough, and I have talked about this in detail on the first post I made on this article, but nobody has commented on it.

    It is indeed a question of class power, but what's shocking is that I have seen so many leftists draw abstract conclusions and formulas that ignore so much of what all Chinese people know from practice. Foreign leftists talk about an abstract monolithic cabal that needs to be overthrown, while most ordinary workers and farmers who are worried about local taxes and land grabs are benefitting from central government protection. Who are our enemies? Who are our friends? Nobody's line is perfect, but how can foreign leftists and the majority of ordinary Chinese people come to such radically different conclusions?

    <cite>How was the integration of the Chinese bureaucrat bourgeoisie with world imperialism positive?
    Why would we want to duplicate all the “technology already developed”, a socialist society should not prioritize Ipads and fiberoptics over long term human and ecological health.</cite>

    Again, this is the condescending, half-joking attitude that dogmatists use to bulldoze over factual, evidence-based analysis. Define "integration with world imperialism". Is China jumping in with the US into Iraq and Afghanistan? Are Chinese troops encircling Iran? No. If by "integration" you mean doing trade, that's a strange way of putting it.

    Either way, leftists have talked on and on and on about China being the world's factory for cheap exports and its inevitable collapse with the US economy. But that wasn't what happened. Countries with higher national incomes and far fewer problems than China have outright imploded from the economic crisis. China is not reliant on exports; the driving force for growth is industrial production and investment(especially in infrastructure). Moreover, many established foreign firms have decided to stay in China despite rising wages because of increasing domestic spending power.

    As for not accepting foreign technology - you've got to be kidding me, right? China doesn't need any technology from the rest of the world? It didn't need to catch up with developing high-speed rail, modern computer systems, or sustainable energy sources that can help it move away from coal power and oil dependence? Once again, actual facts are ignored in favor of smug dogmatism.

    @ Worker Antagonism:

    Another thing I want to ask is: if China is now on the side of U.S imperialism, then what do you have to say about its support for Venezuela, Cuba, Nepal, and so on?

    @ Mike E:

    I've read over that last post you put up a couple of times now, and I'll just get to the heart of it. Your biggest assumption is that leftism in China is "immature" and full of "silly ideas". Either that, or its made up of irrelevant "aging generals" (when did I quote any generals?). What is the basis for that reasoning? I asked before how so many Chinese citizens and foreign leftists can come to such different conclusions, and here you explain it away as "silly ideas". Once again you've proved my point on the arrogance of Kasama's rigid "Maoism". The New Left in China has consistently provided invaluable research, data, and analysis of what is actually going on in the country. So the burden of proof is on you to tell why you think your line is somehow "more mature".

  • Guest (eric ribellarsi)

  • Guest (Guan Hanqiang)

    @ Mike E again:

    On the topic of Deng Xiaoping and "capitalist restoration", let's go back to Lenin. What writings and debates have Kasama put up about the NEP?

    Let's discuss the facts once again too. What about all these different sources acknowledging China's economic takeoff the last couple of decades? What is Kasama's response to the endless stream of reports from the UN and respectable political/economic research groups from all over world confirming that China is rapidly reducing poverty and hunger? If you look at the actual data, China scores higher than many countries in its income category in providing physical needs and social rights, so there is no excuse for leftists to support imperialist "human rights" propaganda (moreover, this score would probably be higher when we consider most abuses are due to local-level corruption). It's a fair criticism to say China needs more worker's democracy (so does Cuba, Venezuela, etc.), but to denounce the last few decades as being nothing but a "bitter setback" is just plain ridiculous considering all the concrete gains that have been made.

    Mike says that “Deng represented the negation of both Maoism and socialism…” – agreed [just as obama represents the negation of the civil rights movement]. i’ve had discussions with prc party members whose analysis, paraphrased, amounts to ‘it’s now our turn to be the economic power; eventually, when our standard of living rises, it will be someone else’s turn (to undercut cost by cheaper labor).’ they can’t be teaching much marx, or mao, in the prc these days.

    important p.s., see louis proyect’s blog for a review of an hbo film on the nepali struggle tonight (wed) – it looks surprisingly good. i tried to post this info yesterday, and sent it to kasamasite, but got no traction.

    Deng Xiaoping was an affront to communism. He withdrew all support for revolutionary movements world wide, except the Democratic Kampucheans and he only supported them for China’s personal gain, nothing to do with revolutionary politics.
    The cultural revolution started in a similar way as Tiananmen square. But look at the differences in the way they were handled. Deng is a negation of communism and Marxism, Ely is right about that. There were several pro-China parties in the US and elsewhere after Mao died. Only the pro-Maoist, anti-Deng groups have survived. The others are gone. Why is that? China became so pro-US imperialist that no party could claim to be revolutionary and support China at the same time.
    China today is nothing more than a modern Japan.

  • Deng is one of history's great hangmen and leading counterrevolutionaries. There are few more sinister figures in modern times -- he ranks with Reagan or Thatcher or Breznev or Bush as a towering reactionary on the world stage of his time -- and in many ways dwarfs all of them with his awful accomplishments. And with the <em>particular</em> fact that he emerged from <em>within</em> the communist ranks, by crushing one of humanity's greatest attempts at liberation -- and then directed the organized energies of a quarter of humanity into capitalist development and a relentless push for great-power status.

    I'm not a big fan of lots of artificial "dividing lines" in political life. But... this is <em>one</em> case where it is hard not to see this figure and his role as quite a dividing line (not just among communists but also more generally.)

    In my opinion, that if someone doesn't "get" the nature and role of Deng Xiaoping, (especially with the distance of time, and with some sincere investigation, when we know how things turned out after the 1976 coup against Maoism)...

    Then they are somehow fatally confused on the most basic questions of capitalism vs. socialism, liberation vs. exploitation.

    And if someone actively <em>likes</em> Deng, I have to say that their view of society, life and history has taken them to quite partisan support for raw capitalist exploitation, counterrevolution and big-imperialist aspirations (even if for various historical or perverse reason they, like the ruling party of China today, self-label as some kind of "communist.")

    the majority of white American workers support SB 1070, reactionary positions are the norm among the masses in non revolutionary times, its called bourgeoisie ideological hegemony, revolutionaries should not encourage the delusions of the masses.

    China is doing very well in the crisis, however because I don't identify with the Chinese bourgeoisie and their state, I have no interest in celebrating that.
    I am a little more concerned about the millions of proletarians dropping dead from overwork, pollution and so forth as a result of this "success".

    <blockquote>"Another thing I want to ask is: if China is now on the side of U.S imperialism, then what do you have to say about its support for Venezuela, Cuba, Nepal, and so on?"</blockquote>

    yet again imperialism is the world capitalist order of which China is one faction, the US another.

    Also Cuba is a state capitalist regime rapidly plunging into full scale neo-liberalism and the Nepalese left will have to expel all imperialist influence if they want to get anywhere, instead of just becoming partners in some capitalist development model.

    the RAND corporation has consistently provided invaluable data on imperialist counter-insurgency, the fact that the Chinese new left has done interesting research says nothing about its class stance ( which happens to be reformist support for bourgeoisie dictatorship).

    <blockquote>"On the topic of Deng Xiaoping and “capitalist restoration”, let’s go back to Lenin. What writings and debates have Kasama put up about the NEP?"</blockquote>

    The NEP was a catastrophe, it was a landmark in Bolshevik capitulation to the "inevitability" of capitalist production relations, and the attendant necessity of subjecting the working people to accumulation dictatorship under the ideological guidance of a technocratic concept of socialism ( "soviets plus electrification? nah on second thought, how about just electrification?").

    <blockquote>"What about all these different sources acknowledging China’s economic takeoff the last couple of decades? "

    Why should we care about the "economic take off" of the specific imperialist gang you apparently feel nationalist loyalty towards?

    indeed there is "no excuse" for leftists to support "imperialist propaganda", regardless of weather it originates from CIA linked "democracy" NGOs or from shameless apologists for capitalist barbarism under a crude "national socialist" disguise.

    I could fill page after page with statistics and studies on the harsh reality of exploitation in China today, but those with ears to hear and eyes to see can look it up for themselves.

    This whole dispute opens up a much broader question,does socialism mean autonomous proletarian power, mass democracy, abolition of commodity production, equalization of incomes etc?

    or does it mean efficient economic growth carried out by elitist technocrats in collaboration with international capital, the destruction of the biosphere, and the brutalization of the direct producers all in the name of growth and technological development?

    Times of India few days later had written:

    After India, Nepal, China under Maoist threat?
    TNN, Aug 27, 2010, 04.51pm IST
    Article
    Comments (2)

    KATHMANDU: After a 10-year Maoist uprising in Nepal and an ongoing, spreading red revolution in India, now the first stirrings of the communist guerrilla movement have begun in the land that inspired the rebellion – China.

    Almost 90 years after the Communist Party of China was formed in Shanghai and down the decades became the ruling party of the people's republic, now its leadership is being challenged by a fledgling organisation, the Maoist Communist Party of China (MCPC).

    Little is known about the underground party beyond that it was founded in Nov 2008 with the aim of eventually staging a "second socialist revolution" against the "traitoro us revisionist ruling bloc of the Chinese Communist Party... the top enemy of the peoples of China". In December 2008, members of the MCPC distributed a pamphlet in Beijing and Shanghai – "To all the people of China" – that they say was also picked up by international media organisations like Radio Free Asia and the Voice of America.

    "The basic political line of the party is to completely overthrow the traitorous revisionist ruling bloc within the current Chinese Communist Party and the restored bureaucratic-capitalist class, so that Maoism shall gain victory over revisionism, and socialist society will win against capitalist society," the pamphlet says. "The ultimate objective of our party is to achieve communism."

    The Chinese Maoists say the present domestic and international environment is very conducive to the Chinese revolution: "The economic crisis of global capitalism is continuing to deepen, and there is no way for the Chinese bureaucratic capitalists to pull out of it themselves. The economic and political rule of the ruling bloc has been shaken from both sides. Against the rising revolutionary situation, the ruling bloc is already utilising ways to satisfy the people in a limited manner to appease the public, as well as strengthening their control on the army and the police to protect their wavering rule."

    After the pamphlet was distributed, the Chinese Maoists say the government has stepped up police repression and surveillance. But their propaganda is being reinforced online and through fraternal Maoist organisations abroad, especially in the US and Canada. Recently, the party has issued a 20-point programme, which includes reforming the army, restoring communes and handing over to the people the monopolistic state-owned joint-stock enterprises formed after 1977.

    The Chinese Maoists also pledge to reform the education system, revolutionise medicare and bring salaries on par. Finally, it warns that all corrupt officials who have escaped overseas with large amounts of money will be chased and arrested no matter where they have escaped. And those who refuse to repent for their political crimes, no matter where they are located in the world, will be executed.

    It is inevitable in accordance with Marxist-Leninist-Maoist theory. Furthermore class struggle in various forms in different countries shall gain momentum if Marxist-Leninist-Maoist revolutionary vanguards consolidate internationally objectively and subjectively i.e. in theory &amp; practice. Let all the suffering and toiling people of this beautiful earth be hopeful.

    The Chinese Communist Party not only betrayed Marxism-Leninism, but also Maoism itself.

    Old Mao, would curse the current CCP leaders to hell.

    But the Maoist Communist Party of China will not be tolerated by the Beijing bureaucracy. The CCP believes they have the only right to rule. I hope those maoists now understand, that a single party state is anticommunist and not democratic. It is ironic that the CCP is now arresting maoists because they oppose the rule of the party bureaucracy.

    Learn people,

    All political ideologies have a right to express their ideals. From Marxism to Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, Trotskyism, Liberalism, Social Democracy, Christian Democracy and Conservatism. All political ideals are needed for a genuine democratic society.
