Proletarians of all countries, unite!



What could the greatest fear be? Death? As a materialist I know that life will end some day. What is most important to me is to be an optimist, with the conviction that others will continue the work to which I am committed, and will carry it forward until they

reach our final goal, communism.”
(Interview with Chairman Gonzalo, 1988)


Chairman Gonzalo has died today September 11th, 2021, on the eve of his detention’s 29th anniversary, at the age of 86. This is a day of great grief to the whole international proletariat and to the peoples of the world, especially to the Communist Party of Peru and to the Peruvian people.


Until his last breath, Chairman Gonzalo was the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist on the face of the Earth, Great Leader of the Communist Party of Peru and Peruvian revolution, leader of the World Revolution, teacher of communists and a great Marxist. Until his last breath, he remained loyal for the international proletariat, defending the People’s War and opposing all “peace accords” affairs dreamed by the right-opportunist line. Until his last breath he resisted his near to 29 years long imprisonment and, mocking his prisoners, transformed the maximum security military jail of El Callao into a Shining Trench of Combat every single day. His implacable struggle that lasted to the end is a shining example of the proletarian-revolutionary fighting spirit and strength of will, which we all have to follow.


Our beloved Chairman may be physically dead, but his all-powerful thought is more alive than ever and continues its unstoppable victory march. It is seen in the Peruvian people and in the Communist Party of Peru, which persists in the People’s War, smashing the dreams of right-opportunist line every second. It is seen in the huge solidarity that he received, when the proletariat and the peoples of the world heard of his hospitalization, and even more, when they heard about the plots of the right-opportunist line led by rat Miriam to fabricate his testament. It is seen in the thousands of us communists all over the world, who have raised high his banner and who are his children. It is seen in the unstoppable march of the International Communist Movement towards the Unified International Maoist Conference and the New International Organization of the Proletariat, in the march towards reconstitution of the Communist International and in the march towards Communism. All of this is an incarnation of his all-powerful Thought.


Full of loyalty to the international proletariat and Chairman Gonzalo we reaffirm his last public words that he spoke out as a prisoner in his Great Speech of September 24th, 1992:


“We are here in these circumstances. Some think this is a great defeat. They are dreaming! We tell them to keep on dreaming. It is simply a bend, nothing more, a bend in the road! The road is long and we shall arrive. We shall triumph! You shall see it! You shall see it!”


“As we see in the world, Maoism is marching unstoppably to lead the new wave of world proletarian revolution. Listen well and understand! Those who have ears, use them. Those who have understanding – and we all have it – use it! Enough of this nonsense. Enough of these obscurities! Let us understand that! What is unfolding in the world? What do we need? We need Maoism to be incarnated, and it is being incarnated, and by generating Communist Parties to drive and lead this new great wave of the world proletarian revolution that is coming.”


Those are words that are even more true day by day. Words that oblige us to continue his work. And that will we do, you shall see it!


By this, we encourage all our comrades and masses to show up condemning the assassination of Chairman Gonzalo by Peruvian reaction and persist in fighting continuing his work.
