The Editorial Staff of the Communist International / Internacional Comunista newspaper with deep sorrow condolences the comrades of the Construction Committee of the Maoist Communist Party of Galicia, the proletariat in Galicia and the Galician people, as well as the comrades of Dazibao Rojo for the loss of our beloved comrade Martín Naya, which occurred on September 3rd of this year.
On 15 July, the flag of US imperialism was removed from the US embassy building in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, as Afghan National Resistance forces, led mainly by the Taliban, took control of the city. The expulsion of the invading troops and their bureaucratic machinery from the country's capital comes almost 20 years after imperialism invaded and overthrew the Taliban government. The crushing US defeat, humiliating because of the disparity of the opposing forces, represents one of the major defeats of imperialism in the 21st century, and proof that its historic collapse is, despite its weapons, inevitable.
The victory of the front of resistance led by the Taliban over Yankee imperialism and its allies is a victory of the Afghan nationi in formation for the (formal) independence of the country, an important victory since the Yankees, since the bankruptcy of revisionism, as the only hegemonic imperialist superpower and self-appointed counter-revolutionary world gendarme, have repeatedly negated the right of nations to self-determination. The Afghan people have now won this at gunpoint. This victory gives courage and confidence to all freedom-loving people, everywhere. It is a victory that we celebrate with all progressive and revolutionary forces in the world and especially in Afghanistan.
The denunciation published in "O Estado de São Paulo" caused a huge fanfare last week, according to which the Minister of Defense, Walter Braga Netto, would have threatened the president of the Chamber, if he did not guide the PEC of the printed vote.
We are very pleased to make known that the campaign for the defense of the life of Chairman Gonzalo, the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist on the face of the Earth, Head of the world proletarian revolution, Head of the Communist Party of Peru, the red fraction of the International Communist Movement, is deepening and widening as shown by three recent developments.
If we take a short look at Africa and sum up the recent struggles taken place there, we see tremendous popular uprisings against the misery imperialism burdens on the peoples. At the same time we have to consider that the shortcomings of the communist in Africa are as bad as in no other part of the world and this leads to a situation where the struggles for national liberation are being fought under reactionary banners generally. This is a situation unacceptable for the International Communist Movement.
