CPI (Maoist) Central Committee: Long Live Red May Day!

Long Live May Day!

Revolutionary condition is developing all over the world

The immediate task of the proletariat of the world is to destroy the destructive
imperialism and Establish Socialism where there is no way for wars!

May Day is the day on which the world proletariat expresses its determination of struggle. It is the day the proletariat assesses its balance of forces for freedom, independence, equality and sovereignty and mobilizes its entire strength to fight tireless and with further determination. On this day it pledges for the success of proletarian revolutions of their countries and thus that of World Socialist Revolution. On the occasion of May Day, the Central Committee of our Party conveys Red Salutes to the world proletariat fighting relentlessly against imperialism.

It is the nature of imperialism to destroy the world, environment and the people. It stays alive only in persistent destruction. Imperialism created destructive Corona, is restructuring the economies as a part of globalisation policies in order to overcome its economic and financial crisis and is putting the whole burden on the people. It is collaborating with the Comprador Bureaucratic Bourgeois and big landlord classes of the backward countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America and is indiscriminately looting the natural resources, cheap labour force and markets in the name of capital, technology through forcible and unequal agreements. However, it does not seem to recover from the crisis. Depression, inflation and unemployment intensified. The entire living of the people including health and education is in crisis and people are facing extreme difficulties. Disparity between the rich and the poor is rising. The war dependent US economy is instigating numerous wars on all corners of the world for its super profits and is selling arms. Life turned terrible and people are revolting. Imperialism is propping fascist forces to suppress them. Due to the destructive policies followed by imperialism, the fundamental contradictions at the international and domestic planes are intensifying and thus revolutionary conditions are evolving.

In India, militant struggles of various oppressed classes, sections, tribal and oppressed nationalities are going on against the neo-liberal, corporate sponsored policies of Brahmanic Hindutva Modi government. Workers are taking up united struggles against the four codes brought in the place of labour laws, against privatisation, casualcontract system, Artificial Intelligence, work burden on the workers-rise in working hours, fall in real wages, terrible working conditions and cut in welfare programs and for minimum wages and employment guarantee. The unprecedented success of the countrywide strike observed by Trade Unions on 28-29 March with the broad support of farmers’ organisations is an indication of worker-peasant unity.

Imperialism is exploiting the proletariat and the middle class in order to overcome its crisis. It is utilizing Artificial Intelligence technology and is making cuts in permanent jobs and welfare programs. It is putting extreme tax burden on the people. COVID restrictions out of the crisis of Corona, removal of jobs, more working hours, decrease in wages and high prices are leading the proletariat, employees, students and environmental activists into large scale agitations and strikes. Workers’ demonstrations are taking a militant form in several countries.

The new President of the US Joe Biden is taking and implementing utmost aggressive decisions to sustain the declining world hegemony of the US. It sustained the hegemony of the NATO and G-7 countries in order to control Russia and China that are coming forth as imperialist contenders; strengthened ‘QUAD’; formed ‘AUKUS’. But Europe is not in a condition to cooperate with the US. Germany and France are dependent on the oil and gas imports from Russia. On the other hand intervening in Taiwan affairs, the competent military exercises of China and the US in Taiwan Sea waters are becoming more and more dangerous. Russia and China made an agreement for military cooperation. Tensions and conflicts between the imperialist countries reached an unprecedented intense level since the end of cold war. In this process Russia indulged in war of aggression on Ukraine. The US broke its promises to Russia and expanded NATO and by force or lure made 30 countries part of it; it announced that it would join Ukraine that is the 3rd biggest military force in Europe in NATO; made joint military exercises with Ukraine; deployed its military forces, military ships and missiles in support of Ukraine; with this Russia deployed one and a half lakh army on the borders of Ukraine and imperialist contradictions broke and led to Russian war of aggression on Ukraine. This is going on in a destructive manner for the past two months. The war is undoubted going to lead to further destruction. It shall push the people into unbearable oppression and crisis. World proletariat and other oppressed classes and oppressed nationalities are suffering in the game of the imperialist countries in its economic and hegemonic interests. The danger of World War III is increasing.

The war that broke in the form of Russian war of aggression on Ukraine is imperialist war. Ukraine is a bait in the hands of the US. Our party calls upon the workers, peasants, middle classes and other oppressed classes and oppressed nationalities to condemn the war. It calls upon the proletariat of the world, the oppressed classes and oppressed nationalities to uphold the teachings of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels that ‘the ‘working class’ do not have a country…..communists in all places always support each and every revolutionary movement against the existing (capitalist) socio-political system’, ‘workers of all countries unite’ and the teaching of the great Marxist teacher Lenin, ‘…Enlightened proletariat does not support any of the horde of imperialist wolves…’ and not to take the side of any imperialist country in the war. People all over the world are making militant struggles with the demand to withdraw NATO in the leadership of the US, to fight back the destructive measures of the US to sustain its declining world hegemony making Ukraine a scapegoat, that Russia must immediately and unconditionally stop war on Ukraine as per the aspirations of the people of the world and that Russia call back its armies. Revolutionary conditions are developing. It is the task of the world proletariat to utilize those and intensify anti-imperialist struggles. If Russia indulges in nuclear war and starts World War III, it must learn from the great experience of the success of October revolution of the entire oppressed classes and oppressed nationalities in the leadership of the proletariat in the leadership of Comrades Lenin and Stalin in 1917 by transforming World War I into a civil war, and upholding its legacy, must bring down the Putin government. It must establish a new and higher Socialist government in the leadership of the proletariat. The oppressed people of the US and European countries must make militant movements in the leadership of the proletariat demanding a stop to instigate Ukraine in this war. If the USNATO alliance indulges in World War III, it must be transformed into civil war.

Our party appeals to the world proletariat and the oppressed people to protect the people of Ukraine fleeing to other areas as refugees with a humanitarian perspective. The proletariat and the oppressed people of Ukraine must condemn the pro NATO, especially the US-EU imperialist policies of the Zelensky government that turned the country into a satellite of NATO, especially the US imperialists. They must transform the war imposed by the imperialists into civil war, in order to protect the sovereignty of their country and for the survival of their nationality. The oppressed people of Ukraine must fight against all kinds of imperialism in the leadership of the proletariat of the country and achieve sovereignty. The oppressed nationalities and people of Donetsk and Luhansk Republics of Donbass area must achieve their future depending upon their own strength in the leadership of the proletariat and not by depending on Russian imperialism. The people of the backward countries must fight for the annulment of all kinds of agreements including military agreements made by the comprador governments with imperialist countries.

The only way and the immediate task of the proletariat of the world and Marxist-Leninist-Maoist forces to achieve liberation from imperialist exploitation and oppression and to establish world peace is to root out imperialism from this earth and establish Socialism, where there is no way for wars.

Long live May Day!
Let us defeat imperialism and establish world peace!

Long live the unity of the proletariat of the world!
Workers of all countries Unite!
Long live the unity of workers and peasants!
Long live New Democratic Revolution!
Let us defeat world imperialism that caused Russian war of aggression on Ukraine and establish proletarian state!
