MESSAGE OF THE COMINTERN (SH) ON OCCASION OF

AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY


MAY 25, 1963 - MAY 25, 2018

Today, we celebrate the 55 th anniversary of the African Liberation Day. This is an occasion to greet all exploited and oppressed peoples who struggle for their liberation from imperialist-capitalist enslavement not only in Africa but all over the world.

    Enver Hoxha wrote:

    "There can be no talk of genuine freedom and independence, since most of them are still in a colonial or neo-colonial state. (…) The imperialists are ruling most of the African countries again through their concerns, their capital invested in industry, banks, etc. The overwhelming bulk of the wealth of these countries continues to flow to the metropolises. (…) The policy pursued by the big landowners, the reactionary bourgeoisie, the imperialists and the neo-colonialists is intended to keep the African peoples in permanent bondage, in ignorance, to hinder their social, political and ideological development, and to obstruct their struggle to gain these rights.” (Enver Hoxha, Imperialism and the Revolution, Tirana, 1979, edition in English)

A truly free Africa can only be a socialist Africa in a socialist world. The Comintern (SH) is fighting for the goal of establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat throughout Africa.

Africa is free when not only the world bourgeoisie as a whole is defeated, but also all national bourgeoisies on the entire African continent have disappeared!

Without a revolutionary organization guided by the teachings of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism, there will be no communism in Africa. It is therefore time for the African proletariat to complete what it has begun, its liberation from wage slavery. This requires building the sections of the Comintern (SH) in all African countries, based on the invincible teachings of the 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha.

Only in this way will the African proletariat ill become an inseparable detachment of the glorious red proletarian world army, which will forever defeat world imperialism and march towards world socialism and world communism.

Imperialism means war

- even on the African continent.

Smash world imperialism in Africa!

As a result of the global economic crisis this year, the exploitation of the world imperialist powers has reached its peak. That also affects Africa. The redistribution of imperialist spheres of influence on the entire African continent is imminent. This means war on African soil by the imperialist US, by imperialist Europe (eg France, England, Germany), by imperialist China, and by other imperialist states such as Russia, Brazil, India etc. But also African imperialists themselves, like those in South Africa, will be involved in predatory war for the new redistribution of rulership. Every imperialist world power is fighting for absolute supremacy over Africa - in last consequence by means of the war. That is according the predatory law of world imperialism.

Looking at the current military activities of world imperialism, there are some indications that Africa will in future be divided into four main imperialist spheres of influence:

In North Africa, European imperialism will prevail, but it will have to defend bitterly its hegemony there, especially against the US and China.

In West Africa, American imperialism will prevail and from there seek to extend its super power throughout Africa.

In East Africa, Chinese imperialism will prevail. The superpower China, however, will not settle for East Africa. It is preparing the takeover of the entire African continent.

In South Africa, South African imperialism will continue to rule and expand to the north, but at the same time it will remain dependent, for a while, on various world imperialist powers operating there.

If this possible scenario is not prevented by the unified armed, anti-imperialist war of liberation of the peoples of Africa, then this war for the redivision of Africa will inevitably provoke a civil war that spreads throughout the African continent. The African civil war is part of the world civil war between the world bourgeoisie and the world proletariat, between the forces of world imperialism and the forces of world socialism. The victory or defeat of the world socialist revolution will determine the future of humanity, namely finally where it originated - in Africa.

 

Smash capitalism in Africa !
Long live socialist Africa !

Africa is being exploited and oppressed not only by foreign imperialist powers, but also by the indigenous bourgeoisie, more or less serving the world imperialist powers.
Today, capitalism prevails throughout Africa. In Africa, the capitalist class society exists with exploiting and exploited classes.
The contradiction between capital and labor, between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, has long since become the chief contradiction in Africa and dominates the class struggles in Africa.
As in any capitalist country, the class struggle in African countries will inevitably lead to the power of the working class, which, with the victory of the socialist revolution, will establish the dictatorship of the proletariat and build socialism.
Africa is the continent with the most extreme class contradictions in the world.

Colonialism did not prevent the emergence of capitalism in Africa, but only delayed it. Nowhere is capitalism developing at a faster pace than on the African continent of today. The world imperialists noticed that a capitalist Africa is much more profitable than an old style colonialism. African capitalism produced a strong African working class - one of the new grave diggers of world imperialism. The African workers' movement is still young, but it will learn faster than the workers' movements on the other continents. They will play a more and more important role in the world socialist revolution.

 

Africa is the continent with the sharpest class contradictions in the world.

The situation of the working class is catastrophic. Every strike movement is oppressed and violently persecuted by the alliance between the bourgeois state, the capitalists and the bourgeois trade union leaders. A current example is the anti-strike law in South Africa. The new pact of this trio provides that in case of "violence or damages" on the part of the workers, in strikes, everything has to be done to end the strike as soon as possible, if necessary by force. Wild strikes are condemned by the state in the future as "strike breaking" (as a violation of the strike law). By order of the Labor Court, pickets are arrested by police and convicted by the court.

On April 25, the unions in South Africa had called for a general strike against the Minimum Wage Law, which is nothing other than the legalization of slave wages. The working class has defeated apartheid and will also defeat capitalist exploitation and oppression.

Miners demonstrated on May 10 in front of the mine chamber in Johannesburg against the death of 33 miners this year. In 2017, 76 miners died, compared to 73 in 2016.
In 2012, former mine union leader Cyril Ramaphosa (today's President of South Africa !!!) was responsible for the death of 34 striking miners at Marikana , who were shot dead by the police[the Comintern-SH reported on this]. The multi-billion dollar investor Ramaphosa prompted the African National Congress government to send in armed police to break the strike.

At the moment, in South Africa, wage negotiations for bus drivers are delayed by the capitalists, which is why a nationwide 4-week bus driver strike was called. Further wage strikes are planned this year for the civil service.

In South Africa, militant protests have been increasingly taking place in working-class cities, including those in greater Cape Town and Johannesburg. The workers struggle against catastrophic living conditions because the communities are not able to provide basic services to them.

In Ghana, the largest union of miners is planning protests and strikes in all factories in the country, if the government gives green light to the company "Gold Fields Ltd." to fire more than 2000 miners.

 

In Africa, healthcare is collapsing.

Now it is to be "rescued" by means of privatizations by foreign investors.

Healthcare strikes are spreading across the continent:

In Algeria, the police made witch hunts on the protesting doctors. Strikes have been banned since 2001. The doctors were treated like criminals. Security forces prevent Algerian doctors from attending a sit-in. Police officers indiscriminately arrest passers-by on bus or subway stations just because they are employed in health care. Outside the capital, they were released.
Declining oil and gas revenues, cuts in food and fuel subsidies and rising inflation continue to weigh on Algerians as they face an economic crisis that is now in its fourth year. As social tensions increase, workers' demonstrations, strikes and sit-ins have massively increased in recent months, peaking on 14 February 2018 in a nationwide general strike in public schools and hospitals.
Before the general strike, many demonstrators reported that they had been temporarily arrested or arbitrarily detained in several provinces and cities by security forces and plainclothes police. In addition to the civil unrest in the health and education sectors, airline flight attendants Air Algérie staged a surprise strike in late January 2018 that paralyzed local and international flights for days. Their demands for better wage were condemned by companies and government officials. Air Algérie imposed disciplinary action. Two days after the general strike, Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia threatened he would "not tolerate the continued existence of this anarchy" and promised to put an end to it. The workers' answer is clear: the Algerian working class will promise to put an end to capitalism in Algeria and to replace the bourgeois dictatorship through the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Algeria is not an isolated case.
Medical strikes in Sudan, in Togo and Mauritania.
In Zimbabwe the nurses striked. The strikers were dismissed and their pension rights were canceled. Above all, it was the 15,000 nurses who contributed to the fact that in 2016 fascist President Robert Mugabe had to abdicate. His former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa is now president (!). Of course, he is afraid of the same fate Mugabe suffered.

In Nigeria, hospitals have extended their strike nationally after the government occupied the medical facilities by means of the army. The government blackmailed the strikers with the threat: "Ebola epidemics from the Democratic Republic of the Congo could spread in Nigeria because of the strikes".

In Zimbabwe teachers are striking, namely despite strikebreaking of yellow union leaders, who want to negotiate a rotten compromise with the government. The teachers reject this lazy compromise. As a result, the government has threatened to dismiss striking teachers and to cancel their pension.

One by one, the old corrupt elites of national independence movements are under pressure from the public's protest. Under the rule of the African bourgeoisie, African democracy, which was still young 55 years ago, has long since become open fascism and social fascism. Even the social fascist Jacob Zuma, South Africa's president from the former anti-apartheid movement, had to abdicate. In TOGO, the opposition has been protesting almost weekly since August 2017. The scale of the protests is enormous: 800,000 demonstrators in a country of 6.6 million. The protests have already claimed 16 lives and the government has blocked the Internet nationwide to stop the protests.

The governments and "parliaments" in Africa are so corrupt that they will sooner or later fall one after the other. The way out is not the election of new corrupt governments, but overthrow of the bourgeois class, the abolition of capitalist parliamentarism and the establishment of socialist council power under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Growing protest movement in Africa

In 2018, the protest movement in Africa has continued to increase. It is our task as Stalinist-Hoxhaists to strengthen its militant character and to direct this protest movement towards the socialist revolution. We rely in particular on the protest movement of the youth.

Noteworthy is the hunger strike of the brave revolutionary students in Morocco.

The African Youth is the brightest flame of the African Revolution. This manifests on all streets in Africa. Africa offers no prospects for its young people. Most young people do not find work and have to fight for their existence on the ground or leave their homelands as refugees. We just cite one example of the growing African refugee waves: the conflict between Oromia and Somali, which has forced nearly 1 million people to flee.

In 2018 many protested Africans were killed or injured in the streets. Because they fight for their rights, they are imprisoned and fall victim to state terrorism, which prevails in all African countries.

The state terror in Africa is directed in first line against the protest movement, which is defamed as a "terrorist movement". For example, in Ethiopia hundreds of protesting people were killed on the streets.

We report on the unrest in Tunisia.
Protesters have taken to the streets in a number of Tunisian cities and demanded that the government delete new austerity measures involving an increase in fuel prices and taxes on goods.
At least one demonstrator died in the town of Tebourba, near the capital, Tunis.
The Tunisian Interior Ministry denied reports that the dead man was run over by a police car.
The police arrested 328 protesters. 2100 soldiers were deployed to protect vital facilities such as "banks, post offices and other government buildings in major cities in the country".
The new youth movement in Tunisia is protesting in the streets to put pressure on the government and overturn austerity measures.
What are the protests against?
These are above all the price increases. The Tunisian government has increased taxes under the Finance Act 2018. The new budget increased VAT on cars, alcohol, phone calls, the Internet, hotel accommodation and other items. The important tourism sector has not recovered yet after the deadly terrorist attacks in Sousse and Tunis in 2015. Tunisia's inflation is currently around 6% a year, which reduces people's incomes, and tax hikes hit the poorest of the poor - not the rich.
Who is behind the protests?
The protests seem to have spontaneously erupted among people at the local level.
A new, informal youth movement called Fech-Neustan - or "What are we waiting for?" - Created at the beginning of the year, now uses social media to resist price increases.
The group, which uses an alarm clock as a logo to symbolize the need for the population to wake up and act, estimates its own members at around 6,000 across the country, with hundreds of members in Tunis. Representatives say it is a loosely organized grassroots movement without a leader. Some of its members belong to opposition parties - such as the "Popular Front" neo-revisionists of the ICMLPO (Hamma Hammami). These leaders are trying to strangle the Tunisian revolution and turn it to a wrong (petty bourgeois) track instead of leading the Tunisian working class to the socialist revolution.

In Morocco, the protests over economic marginalization have continued since the end of December 2017 in the former mining town of Jerada (Oriental region). The miners demand better safety regulations in the mines. Tensions increased as the government arrested two key leaders of the protest movement and subsequently banned all protests. The residents of Jerada opposed the ban and went to the barricades.

In Guinea, the students protested in Conakry when the strikes - especially the teachers' strike - went into the third week. Since the elections on 4 February 2018, there have been continuing waves of protests in Guinea. 14 protesters died in the clashes.

Cameroon is still facing an escalating uprising in its south.

An increase in revolutionary violence has also been reported in the Central African Republic (CAR) and Mali.

In Madagascar, the students clashed with other protesters who called for the resignation of the president in recent weeks and aggravated the country's political crisis.
In Senegal, clashes erupted between students and the police in Saint Louis on May 15, resulting in the death of one student, and leading to further student protests the next day.

African farmers are protesting against the flooding of Africa with foreign agricultural goods. The domestic agricultural market is destroyed and thus the livelihood of the farmers. Responsible are not only the agricultural capitalists from Europe, but also increasingly from China.

 

Escalating fight for resources in Africa

 

The fight over water has got the character of class struggle in Africa. It is a struggle between the poor and the rich, a struggle to abolish private ownership of African water resources. The war over the water, the war over oil and other mineral resources will increase to the same extent as their scarcity.
Mining raw material extraction (including oil, diamonds, copper and cobalt) has tremendous economic potential for bourgeois governments in Africa. It is also a source of political power within the class society. It is both an economic source for the revolution and the counter revolution.
Corruption is the order of the day. Those who win the raw materials, the workers, remain poor. The profit goes into the pockets of the indigenous bourgeoisie, the labour aristocracy and the multinational corporations. This unequal distribution leads more and more to social conflicts. Rebel groups are using profits from conflict diamonds to fund civil wars in Angola, DR Congo and Sierra Leone. Oil workers are kidnapped and taken hostage. The incidence of conflicts is five times higher than it was ten years ago. While such riots and protests are occurring throughout Africa, resource-related struggles and cases of violence against workers are particularly evident in only a few countries: Nigeria, Sudan, South Sudan, DRC and Somalia. Nigeria consistently has a high direct conflict with resources. As the 12th largest oil producer in the world and the eighth largest exporter, the resource-related conflict in Nigeria revolves around oil. About 5% of violent conflicts in South Sudan since 2011 are explicitly resource related. The vast majority of this kind of conflict, which is being observed in South Sudan, consists of battles, primarily between government forces and rebel groups. Resource conflicts in South Sudan are also associated with oil. Sudan has also experienced a large number of these oil conflicts.
While oil creates resource-related conflicts in Nigeria, Sudan and South Sudan, the commodity-related conflict in DR Congo is fueled mainly by mining (eg diamonds, cobalt). It is estimated that DR Congo has approximately $ 24 trillion of unexploited crude mineral ore, including the world's largest cobalt reserves. Most of this type of conflict in the DR Congo takes place primarily between government forces and rebel groups. It's about control of the mines.
Somalia sees a high number of conflicts directly with resources, mainly caused by clan clashes over access to and control of land and water resources. In a region with year-round high temperatures and limited / irregular rainfall, these natural resources become even more valuable.
Riots and protests related to resources have increased in recent years. Nigeria and, most recently, Libya account for the largest share of these events. With Nigeria the largest oil producer on the continent and Libya home to Africa's largest oil reserves, food riots and protests in these countries are primarily targeted at the oil industry. For example, these riots and protests include the closure of the offices of local oil companies: emands for more transparency, higher wages and better working conditions.
Given the low enforcement of mining industries in Africa, corruption in these industries is high. Although the region has a number of extremely resource-rich countries, many are still extremely poor and underdeveloped.

Our answer is clear:

Fight the plundering of Africa's resources by the world imperialists!

Everything belongs in the hands of the African working class! Expropriation of the capitalists! Abolition of private ownership of resources! Resources in the hands of the working people!

Abolition of capitalism! Establishment of socialism!

Today's crises of world capitalism have devastating consequences for the impoverished population of Africa. The world crisis is being misused by the world imperialists to extract more wealth from Africa. This corresponds to the parasitic nature of world imperialism (the concentration and centralization of exploitation, the monopolization of financial and industrial capital, the business of hunger, water, resources, wage slavery, refugees, proxy wars, etc.) The blood of the African peoples continues to flow for the maximum profit of imperialists around the world.

The heroic history of the anti-imperialist wars and liberation struggles of Africans will one day be rewarded with the victory of the socialist revolution throughout Africa. In Africa, one day, the dictatorship of the proletariat will be established and an African Union of Socialist Republics founded, modeled on the Soviet Union of Lenin and Stalin, and on the model of socialism in Albania of comrade Enver Hoxha.

The African Liberation Day represents a socialist Africa in a socialist world!

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is

the teaching of the preparation, recruitment, centralized organization and mobilization of the international proletarian army, in general, and the transformation of the reserves of the imperialist hinterland into new proletarian detachments of the world socialist revolution, in particular.

The weakening of the chain of world imperialism requieres the strengthening of the anti-imperialist chain in Africa.

With the development of capitalism in the colonies, the global development of world imperialism is nearly mature and complete - thus ready for the transformation into world socialism - also in Africa.

The expansion of imperialism in Africa - coupled with so much misery and blood - prepares its own decline and consequently its replacement by socialism. Unavoidably, that will be a new kind of socialism with global features - in the course of the globalization on the African continent and the socialist world revolution.

Africa is on the road back to its roots - to the classless society - and thus on the road towards communism in a classless world !

 

Long live the 55th anniversary of the African Liberation Day!

Comrades of the African continent !

Build up your strong "African Section" of the Comintern (SH) !

Without a revolutionary organization, which is guided by the teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism, there will be no communism in Africa !

The conscious and active transformation of the interests of the revolution in Africa into the service of the interests of the socialist world revolution - only this is genuine internationalism of the African working class.

For a socialist Africa in a socialist world !

Establish the proletarian dictatorship in every African country !"

 

Long live the struggle of African and world workers for their liberation from exploitation and oppression!

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhaism!

Long live world socialist revolution and violent proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the African Sections of the Comintern (SH)!

MESSAGE OF THE COMINTERN (SH) ON OCCASION OF

AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY


MAY 25, 1963 - MAY 25, 2017

Today, we celebrate the 54th anniversary of the African Liberation Day. This is an occasion to greet all exploited and oppressed peoples who struggle for their liberation from imperialist-capitalist enslavement not only in African but all over the world.

The history of African class society is the story of his heroic class struggle against slavery, subjugation and plundering, the history of defeats and victories of his liberation. The peoples of Africa are rich in experience from which they can draw lessons for their total liberation and emancipation. And also the African proletariat is capable to draw lessons from the recent history of the workers movement in Africa. And that goes also for the lessons of the communist movement and, especially for the anti-revisionist struggle in Africa. 

African neo-revisionism is the restoration of African revisionism, is reconciliation with revisionism in general, and with Maoism, in particular. The socialist revolution will fail if the communist movement in Africa is not purified from neo-revisionism, as long as neo-revisionist influence is not defeated.

We appeal to those African revolutionaries who are militant fighters against revisionism, neo-revisionism, and especially against Maoism. Today, an African communist is characterized by the ideological demarcation-line between Stalinism-Hoxhaism and Neo-Revisionism. We need African comrades who are implacably against revisionism and social-fascism, and absolutely determined to fight against every revisionist influence among the revolutionary communist- and workers movement in Africa.

It is the core issue of the communist movement in Africa , not to unite with the reformist, revisionist or neo-revisionist elements in the struggle against imperialism, but to fight imperialism and its lackeys by the socialist revolution on the basis of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism.

The one colonial power replaced the other - but the colonies still remained. The history of imperialist wars in the period of the redivision of Africa is the heroic story of its anti-imperialist wars and liberation struggles of the Africans. Exploiting ruthlessly the world crisis for the purpose to extract ten times more riches from Africa - that is the essence of imperialist parasitism ( the business with starvation, with water, with resources, with weapons, with labor, etc).

Neo-colonialism is the highest stage of colonialism.

Neo-colonialism is a "molted" colonialism, is "decolonialization" in words and re-colonialization in deeds. Neo-colonialism is the highest stage of colonialism - is parasitic, decaying, dying colonialism. Imperialism, itself, destroys its own hinterland. And without its hinterland imperialism is doomed to die.

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the teaching of the preparation, recruitment, centralized organization and mobilization of the international proletarian army, in general, and the transformation of the reserves of the imperialist hinterland into new proletarian detachments of the world socialist revolution, in particular.

The October Revolution - exactly 100 years ago - was the first step towards the socialist world revolution. There will be no socialist Africa without applying to the experiences and teachings of the October Revolution. The October Revolution heralded the unification of anti-imperialist war of the world proletariat and the war of liberation of the oppressed peoples. The continuation of the October Revolution and the world socialist revolution is the only way to liberate Africa from imperialist exploitation and oppression.

The weakening of the chain of world imperialism requieres the strengthening of the anti-imperialist chain in Africa.

With the development of capitalism in the colonies, the global development of world imperialism is nearly mature and complete - thus ready for the transformation into world socialism - also in Africa.

The expansion of imperialism in Africa - coupled with so much misery and blood - prepares its own decline and consequently its replacement by socialism. Unavoidably, that will be a new kind of socialism with global features - in the course of the globalization on the African continent and the socialist world revolution.

Africa is on the road back to its roots - to the classless society - and thus on the road towards communism in a classless world !

African Liberation Day

 

The history of African class society is the history of heroic class struggle against slavery, subjugation and plundering, the history of defeats and victories of liberation. The peoples of Africa are rich in experience from which they draw lessons for their total liberation and emancipation. And also the African proletariat is capable to draw lessons from the recent history of the workers movement in Africa. And that goes also for the lessons of the communist movement and, especially for the anti-revisionist struggle in Africa.

Africa has suffered (and still suffers) the worst genocide and holocaust at the hands of the architects of slavery and colonialism. Slave owners and slaves - this was the first major African separation of classes. The second major African class division was between the lords of the manor and serfs. And finally - today - the capitalist Africa polarizes the class of proletarians and the bourgeoisie.

The imperialists involved the African continent into a new, larger and even bloodier battle - namely re-division of their spheres of influence, sources of raw materials and markets. Thus, the African peoples were drawn into the imperialist wars ... First World War - Second World War. Then followed wars among the African bourgeois nations which are instigated and controlled by the world imperialist powers both jointly and as rivals – in the interest of squeezing out maximum profits through exploitation of the African working class and the African peoples. The old colonial power are replaced by new one's - but colonialism still remains. Neo-colonialism is the highest stage of colonialism - is parasitic, decaying, dying colonialism. Imperialism, itself, destroys its own hinterland. And without its hinterland imperialism is doomed to die.

"The policy pursued by the big landowners, the reactionary bourgeoisie, the imperialists and the neo-colonialists is intended to keep the African peoples in permanent bondage, in ignorance, to hinder their social, political and ideological development, and to obstruct their struggle to gain these rights.” (Enver Hoxha, Imperialism and the Revolution, Tirana, 1979, edition in English)

Today's crises of world capitalism have devastating consequences for the poor people in Africa. Exploiting ruthlessly the world crisis for the purpose to extract more and more riches from Africa - that is the essence of today's imperialist parasitism of neo-colonialism (the monopolization of financial and industrial capital, business with starvation, with water, with resources, with proxy wars and the blood of the African peoples, with wage-slavery, with refugees etc).

The history of imperialist wars in the period of the redivision of Africa is the heroic history of anti-imperialist wars and liberation struggles of the Africans which will be crowned by the victory of the socialist revolutions all over Africa, by the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat and the creation of the African Union of Socialist Republics.

The African Liberation Day stands for a socialist Africa in a socialist world !

The weakening of the chain of world imperialism means strengthening the anti-imperialist chain in Africa. Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the teaching of the preparation, recruitment, centralized organization and mobilization of the international proletarian army, in general, and the transformation of the reserves of the imperialist hinterland into new proletarian detachments of the world socialist revolution, in particular. The Comintern (SH) is the global revolutionary organization which combines the African socialist revolutions as parts and attachments of the socialist world revolution. 

Africa is only free by means of the dictatorship of the African proletariat and peasants which has totally purified world-bourgeoisie's neo-colonialism on the whole African continent and which has victoriously defeated all African national bourgeoisie !

Without a revolutionary organization, which is guided by the teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism, there will be no communism in Africa. It is time for African proletariat to finish what it was left half-way through constructing a Section of the Comintern (SH) in each African country and through faithfully applying the invincible teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha. Only in this manner, the African proletariat will become part of the glorious global red proletarian army that will defeat world capitalism-imperialism once for all and march towards world socialism and world communism.

Long live the 53nd anniversary of the African Liberation Day!

Long live the struggle of African and world workers for their liberation from exploitation and oppression!

Long live the socialist revolutions in Africa and the dictatorship of the African working class !

MESSAGE OF THE COMINTERN (SH) ON OCCASION OF AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY


MAY 25, 1963 - MAY 25, 2015


Today, we celebrate the 52nd anniversary of the African Liberation Day. This is an occasion to greet all exploited and oppressed peoples who struggle for their liberation from imperialist-capitalist enslavement not only in African but all over the world.

However, we must pay particular tribute to the enormous combats waged by African workers against colonialism and neo-colonialism since several centuries ago. They put forward this anti-colonialist fight during the former times of European (British, French, German, Portuguese, Belgian, etc.) imperialism and posteriorly, when world bourgeois class understood that neo-colonialism could better serve its interests, also against American, Soviet and more recent Chinese imperialism.

Unfortunately, the struggle of African peoples could never accomplish complete emancipation, it could never be concluded through genuine socialist revolution and proletarian dictatorship under the vanguard leadership of authentic Bolshevist parties of Leninist-Stalinist type. In 1979, comrade Enver Hoxha made an affirmation that is still entirely suitable nowadays:

Africa is a mosaic of peoples with an ancient culture. Each African people has its own culture, customs, way of life, which, with some variations, are at a very backward stage, for well-known reasons. The awakening of the bulk of these peoples has only recently begun. De jure, the African peoples, in general, have won their freedom and independence. But there can be no talk of genuine freedom and independence, since most of them are still in a colonial or neo-colonial state. (…) The imperialists are ruling most of the African countries again through their concerns, their capital invested in industry, banks, etc. The overwhelming bulk of the wealth of these countries continues to flow to the metropolises. (…) The African population remained culturally and economically undeveloped (…)The policy pursued by the big landowners, the reactionary bourgeoisie, the imperialists and the neo-colonialists is intended to keep the African peoples in permanent bondage, in ignorance, to hinder their social, political and ideological development, and to obstruct their struggle to gain these rights.” (Enver Hoxha, Imperialism and the Revolution, Tirana, 1979, edition in English)

Thus, world bourgeois class continued to put its colonialist and neo-colonialist claws over Africa and its resources and workforce. We also take this opportunity to recall the indispensable role played by all kinds of bourgeois-reformist and revisionist movements to ensure that capitalist-imperialist system could keep African toilers under its dominance. From the Krushchevist, Maoist, etc. revisionisms to the so-called “African ways to socialism” and “Pan-African / Pan-Arabian” and “non-aligned” movements - all of them contributed to that.

But now, it is time for African proletariat to finish what it was left half-way through constructing a Section of the Comintern (SH) in each African country and through faithfully applying the invincible teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha.

Only in this manner will they manage to be part of the glorious global red proletarian army that will defeat world capitalism-imperialism once for all towards world socialism and world communism.


Long live the 52nd anniversary of the African Liberation Day!

Long live the struggle of African and world workers for their liberation from exploitation and oppression!

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhaism!

Long live world socialist revolution and violent proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the African Sections of the Comintern (SH)!

Long live the Comintern (SH) – the only true Bolshevist world party!

WHO IS THE PCB ?

     

    Once upon a time, this party was a brother party of our proud Hoxhaist World Movement - exactly until the fall of the Socialist Albania of comrade Enver Hoxha.

    We were in full solidarity with our comrades from Benin who have then defended the Marxist-Leninist banner of comrade Enver Hoxha.

    In their founding document the comrades of Benin sent a message to the Party of Labour of Albania and to comrade Enver Hoxha.

    It is written:

    "The founding congress of the Communist Party of Dahomey welcomes the victory of the proletarian dictatorship in the People's Socialist Republic of Albania.
    The founding congress of the Communist Dahomey party supports the correct struggle of the Albanian Party of Labour, with Comrade Enver Hoxha at the head, who defends the purity of Marxism- Leninism against any revisionist tendencies, who safeguards the Unity of Marxist-Leninist Communist Movement and who applicates the true proletarian Internationalism, the defense and strengthening of the dictatorship of the proletariat and the continuation of the complete construction of
    Socialism in Albania. This correct struggle inspires the Communists Dahomey, who is determined to climb up any mountain, and who encourages our working class and our people."

 

Let us also have a view into their correct Marxist-Leninist programme which was worked out and decided in the period of the foundation of the Communist Party of Dahomey:

 

"The Communist Dahomey party fights
against French imperialism, while at the same time also against the two hegemonic superpowers, the U.S.-Imperialism and the Soviet social-imperialism. The determined struggle against these outside Enemies is not separated from the fight against the domestic reaction, the bureaucratic comprador bourgeoisie and against the remnants of feudalism which is supportesd by the imperialists.
(...)
Numerically, the working class of Dahomey is small, however it is the leading class in the revolution and is guided by the leading role of the party.
The main task of the Party at the present stage is to fulfill its essential functions: the political unification of the people around the party, arming the masses and building a liberation army for the destruction of the existing neo-colonial state apparatus and its replacement by a new apparatus of the people's dictatorship which is directed against the pro-imperialist classes and its lackeys.

(...)
The Communist Party of Dahomey rejects the sermons of the "theory" of the "Three Worlds" of forming an Alliance with the Western European and American imperialism to fight alleged against Soviet social-imperialism. The "Three-World-Theory" prays the reconciliation between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat.
The Party promised
wholeheartedly to give support to the Party of Labour of Albania and its leader, Comrade Enver Hoxha,in their resoluteand principled struggle of the defense of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism on the basis of the lessons of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin."


And today ?

The PCB has rejected all these political treasures! The leaders crept under the neo-revisionist platform of the ICMLPO - the notoriety of the so called "Declaration of Quito" of 1992. This platform exstinguished all former ties to Socialist Albania with comrade Enver Hoxha at the head. Affiliated with the ICMLPO, the leaders of the PCB became traitors and enemies of Hoxhaism and the Hoxhaist World Movement. In words, they claim to be " Marxist-Leninists", but in deeds they have left all principled attitudes and teachings of Marxism-Leninism. The party is in the hand of leaders who have "forgotten" and buried what the party has once decided in its own first revolutionary programme.

 

The Comintern (SH) is the standard-bearer of Socialist Albania and the Marxist-Leninist Movement with comrade Enver Hoxha at the top. We are reaching our hands only out to those comrades of the party who have not and will not forget the defense of comrade Enver Hoxha, the 5th Classic of Marxism-Leninism, who defend the revolutionary banner and spirit of the old Hoxhaist party leaders.

We support all comrades who struggle against the treacherous neo-revisionist leaders of the PCB. We struggle for the goal of the re-Bolshevization of the Party based on the old correct programme. In the case, if this is impossible, we would recommend to help us, at first, to create the new African Section of the Comintern (SH) - based on our "African Platform" which centralizes the collection and organization of all Stalinist-Hoxhaist forces in Benin and all the other countries of the African continent.

    In the Appeal of May Day, published on April 28, 2012, there is nothing to read about the necessity of the armed socialist revolution, nothing about the dictatorship of the proletariat, nothing about the proletarian internationalism and the socialist world revolution, nothing about striving for the model of the Socialist Albania, nothing about socialism, communism, etc.

    In short: It is a pure economistic, nationalist, neo-revisionist May-Appeal.

     

    In the conference of the leading forces of the PCB (also April 28, 2012) there is nothing to read about the most important task:

    Revolutionary, armed removal and destruction of capitalism, expropriation of the private ownership at the means of production, annulation of the debts and the nationalization of all riches of the country in the hands of the proletariat and the poor peasants. Nothing to read about the necessity of the Soviet regime, nothing about the dictatorship of the proletariat, nothing about the agrarian revolution etc. etc.

    Instead of this, these "leading forces" of the PCB produced petty bourgeois nationalist rubbish which has nothing in common with the decision of a genuine revolutionary Bolshevists party, nothing in common with the Comintern of Lenin and Stalin.

    The PCB does not lead the class struggle of the proletariat, does not educate the proletariat with the teachings of Marxism-Leninism for the preparation of the armed socialist revolution.

    However, the PCB spreads illusions about petty-bourgeois democracy, liberalism and legalism instead of preparing the necessary transition from the democratic revolution ( December 11, 1989) to the socialist revolution on the basis of principled rules of a Bolshevist party.

    The tasks of the proletariat of Benin are not restricted within the borders of the country.

    The proletariat of Benin is part of the entire African proletariat which has to be prepared for the socialist world revolution as a conscious part of the army of the world proletariat.

    The proletariat of Benin can not be free, if the whole proletariat of Africa is not free. And the African proletariat can not be free if the whole world proletariat is not free.

    The conscious and active transformation of the interests of the revolution in Africa into the service of the interests of the socialist world revolution - only this is genuine internationalism of the working class of Benin.

     

    Long live the friendship between the Hoxhaists of Benin and Socialist Albanian with comrade Enver Hoxha at the top !

    Long live the revolutionary proletariat of Benin !

    Long live the socialist revolution and the proletarian dictatorship of Benin !

    Long live the world proletariat and the dictatorship of the world proletariat !

    Long live the socialist world revolution !

    Long live the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism

In einer Botschaft der

KP Dahomeys

an den Genossen Enver Hoxha und das ZK der PAA heißt es unter anderem:

     

    “Wir erfuhren voll Empörung von dem willkürlichen und niederträchtigen Beschluss der chinesischen Führung, alle Hilfen und Zahlungen von zivilen und militärischen Krediten an Albanien sofort einzustellen, eine Reihe sehr wichtiger Werke unvollendet zu lassen und alle chinesischen Spezialisten abzuziehen, die in Albanien arbeiteten. Dieser gemeine Akt der chinesischen Führung ist eine logische Folge der konterrevolutionären, pragmatischen und eklektizistischen Politik, die sie seit einigen Jahren auf internationaler Ebene verfolgt und die vollkommen im Gegensatz zu den Lehren des Marxismus-Leninismus und des proletarischen Internationalismus steht. Die chinesischen Führer, die die konterrevolutionäre “Theorie der drei Welten” erfanden, derzufolge die Revolution nicht auf der Tagesordnung steht, betreiben eine Politik der Liquidierung der Revolution und des Sozialismus. Deshalb wollen sie das Bollwerk des Sozialismus und der Revolution, die SVR Albanien erdrosseln, während sie gleichzeitig Mobutu und anderen Faschisten Kredite, Waffen und Militärberater schicken.

    Aber so wie vor ihnen Tito und Chruschtschow schon scheiterten, so werden auch die chinesischen Führer in ihrer kinterrevolutionären und chauvinistischen Tätigkeit der Großmacht gegenüber dem sozialistischen Albanien und den Völkern der Wekt scheitern. Das albanische Volk unter Führung der PAA mit dem hervorragenden Marxisten-Leninisten Enver Hoxha an der Spitze hat eine langjährige Erfahrung im Kampf gegen die Imperialisten und Revisionisten. Es verstand, die brutale imperialistisch-revisionistische Blockade des amerikanischen Imperialismus und der sowjetischen Revisionisten zum Scheitern zu bringen. Mit Sicherheit wird es auch die chauvinistischen Manöver der Großmacht und die Politik des Giktats der chinesischen Führung durchbrechen.

    Die KP Dahomeys unterstützt entschlossen die PAA und die SVR Albanien. Das Volk von Dahomey erfährt, das im Süden Europas auf dem Balkan ein Land liegt, das vor den Feinden der Völker nicht in die Knie geht, das den Sozialismus gestützt auf die eigenen Kräfte und mit erhobenem Haupt aufbaut und dadurch dem Proletariat und den Völkern der Welt den Weg der Ehre zeigt, dass es dort ein Volk gibt, das die Blockade der Imperialisten, der Revisionisten und der Reaktionäre herausfordert, ein Volk, das von einer Partei geführt wird, die sich unerschütterlich auf die Lehren von Marx, Engels, Lenin und Stalin stützt. Die Herzen des Weltproletariats, der Revolutionäre der ganzen Welt, aller ehrlichen Menschen Afrikas, besonders Dahomeys, schlagen heute vereint mit dem des heroischen albanischen Volkes. Das sozialistische Albanien genießt heute die uneingeschränkte Bewunderung und die Unterstützung des Weltproletariats und der Völker der Welt. Seine Sache ist gerecht und der Sieg unausbleiblich.”

Aufruf der Kommunistischen Partei von Dahome an die Arbeiter, Bauern und alle werktätigen Massen des Landes


Vor kurzem veröffentlichte die Zeitung "La flamme" ("Die Flamme"), Organ der KP von Dahome, einen Aufruf dieser Partei an die Arbeiter, Bauern und alle Werktätigen des Landes. Die KP Dahomes analysiert darin die internationale Situation und schreibt:

Die Große Sozialistische Oktoterrevolution eröffnete eine neue Epoche:

die Epoche des Sturzes des Imperialismus und des Triumphs der proletarischen Revolutionen. Seit diesem historischen Ereignis
ist die Welt in zwei Lager geteilt, in das Lager der Revolution auf der einen Seite, in das Lager des Imperialismus und der Weltreaktion auf der anderen Seite. Nach dem Tod Stalins, nachdem die Chruschtschow-Breschnew" - Clique die Macht an sich gerissen hatte, wurde die Sowjetunion zu einem bürgerlichen sozialfaschistischen Staat und zu einer sozialimperialistischen Macht.
Zusammen mit den USA sind sie heute die Häupter des imperialistischen Systems, die beiden größten internationalen Ausbeuter. Der amerikanische Imperialismus und der sowjetische Sozialimperialismus sind im selben Maß der
Hauptfeind Nr. 1 des Proletariats und der Völker der Welt. Sie bilden zusammen mit den anderen imperialistischen Mächten zwei große aggressive Gruppen, die sich der Revolution, dem Sozialismus, der Unabhängigkeit und der Freiheit
der Völker entgegenstellen. Ihre Rivalität um die Vorherrschaft birgt die Gefahr, die ganze Menschheit in einen 3. Weltkrieg zu stürzen.
Gegenwärtig steckt die imperialistische und bürgerlich-revisionistische Welt in ihrer schwersten Krtse seit dem 2. Weltkrieg. Afrika spürt ihre Folgen aufs Äußerste. Der afrikanische Kontinent ist für die imperialistische Herrschaft ein bevorzugtes Terrain, insbesondere für die nordamerikanische und die westdeuropäische. Dieser Kontinent ist ein Feld für die koloniale, die neokoloniale, die rassistische Unterdrückung, ein Feld des Elends, der Unwissenheit, des Hungers und allerlei Krankheiten. Trotzdem bereichern sich
die führenden Klassen, die afrikanischen Bürokraten und Kompradoren immer mehr und profitieren von der Krise, die sich jeden Tag mehr vertieft. Angesichts dieser Situation predigen die Vertreter der "Theorie der Drei Welten", man solle auf die Revolution verzichten und sich mit dem westeuropäischen und dem amerikanischen Imperialismus vereinigen, um den angeblich gefährlicheren
Sozialimperialismus zu bekämpfen. Die KP Dahomes, wird in dem Aufruf unterstrichen, weist kategorisch diese konterrevolutionären Vorschläge zurück.
n dem Aufruf der KP Dahomes wird der Kampf des Volkes von Dahome gegen den Kolonialismus aufgezeigt und die gegenwärtige Lage im Land analysiert. Dann heißt es, das Volk Dahomes kämpft seit langem gegen seine Feinde.
Was ihm bis jetzt fehlte, ist die Führung des Kampfes durch eine weitsichtige Partei, durch eine Vorhutpartei, die KP Dahomes. Doch diese Partei wurde geschaffen.
Das Entstehen des Kommunistischen Bundes von Dahome im September 1976 war ein wichtiger Schritt im Prozeß der Schaffung der KP Dahomes, ihr Vorläufer. Die KP Dahomes wird sich machtvoll auf den Marxismus-Leninismus und auf die Erfahrungen unseres Landes stützen, um die Kämpfe in
unserem Land bis zum Sieg über die Klassenfeinde zu führen. Wir werden dem Andenken unserer Volkshelden treu bleiben und auf Leben und Tod gegen den internationalen Imperialismus kämpfen, besonders gegen den französischen, die beiden Supermächte, die USA und die Sowjetunion, und gegen die bürokratische und Kompradorenbourgeoisie unseres Landes.
Vereint um die KP Dahomes wird unser Volk seine Feinde stürzen und jede Art Imperialismus, sei er alt oder neu, stark oder schwach, ein für alle Mal von unserem nationalen Boden verjagen. Vereint um die KP Dahomes wird das Volk von Dahome die Revolution machen. Unser Kampf ist nicht isoliert, betont die KP Dahomes, Er verfügt über die Lehren der großen Klassiker des Marxismus-Leninismus Marx, Engels, Lenin und Stalin.
Weiter ruft die KP Dahomes die Kommunisten, die Arbeiter, die Bauern, die Soldaten, die Jugendlichen, die Intellektuellen auf, ihre Kräfte und ihre Anstrengungen zu vereinen, um die von der Partei ausgehenden Losungen zu verwirklichen. In diesen Parolen äußern sich die aktuellen Ziele der Partei wie

 

Verjagung des französischen Imperialismus,

 

der Sturz der bürokratischen und Kompradorenbourgeoisie und des Feudalismus,

 

die Zerschlagung des reaktionären Staatsapparats,

 

die Bildung einer Arbeiter - und Bauernregierung und die

 

Errichtung der Diktatur des Proletariats,

 

die entschädigungslose Enteignung der Betriebe, der Banken und des Landes der Imperialisten und der Feudalen,

 

Arbeit und 8-Stundentag für alle,

 

kostenlose Schulbildung,

 

Gleichberechtigung zwischen Mann und Frau.

 


Abschließend ruft die KP Dahomes dazu auf, die Aktionen des internationalen Proletariats und der Völker zu unterstützen, denn diese Aktionen haben, wie sie betont, ein Ziel: die Revolution, die Unabhängigkeit und die Freiheit der Völker.

 

 

 

 

Radio Tirana vom 18. 12. 1978


Die Kommunistische Partei Dahomeys macht den Massen der Notwendigkeit des revolutionären Kampfes bewußt


Die KP Dahomeys hat sich an die Aufklärung und Mobilisierung der Massen im Klassenkampf gegen die Unterdrücker und Ausbeuter gemacht. Dazu veröffentlichte die Zeitung "La Flamme", Organ der KP Dahomeys, einen Artikel mit dem Titel: "Die Massen machen die Revolution - die KP Dahomeys macht
sie dazu bewußt"
, in dem in enger Verbindung mit der Situation im Land eine Reihe von Aufgaben der Partei dargelegt werden.
In Dahomey , heißt es in dem Artikel, ist das Volk heute unter dem Joch des internationalen und besonders des französischen Imperialismus, dessen Werkzeug eine Klasse von bürokratischen Bourgeois und Militärs ist. Die KP Dahomeys betont, daß es eben diese reaktionären Kräfte waren, die brutal
gegen die Gründung der Kommunistischen Partei in diesem Land kämpften und eine organisierte Verleumdungskampagne unternahmen, um die Kommunisten von den werktätigen Massen zu isolieren. Die KP Dahomeys entlarvt diese feindselige Tätigkeit und unterstreicht die Notwendigkeit des Kampfes
für demokratische und revolutionäre Freiheiten. Durch diesen Kampf wird das Volk in der Lage sein, den Betrug der Reaktion zu begreifen, die hofft, den tiefen Wunsch des Volkes zur Einheit um die KP Dahomeys zu untergraben.
Aber unabhängig von den Absichten der Reaktion werden die Kommunisten durch ihre Arbeit erreichen, daß die Massen auf die Seite der KP Dahomeys übergehen für die national-demokratische, anti-imperialistische Revolution.
Die KP Dahomeys lehrt die Massen gleichzeitig, daß die demokratische Bewegung im Land, um wirklich revolutionär und siegreich zu sein, sich eng mit dem Proletariat und seiner Vorhutpartei, der KP Dahomeys vereinigen muß, das Proletariat im Kampf unterstützen muß, denn es ist die einzige bis zum
Schluß revolutionäre Kraft.
Die Einheit des Volkes um die Partei geschieht durch den scharfen Kampf mit den Opportunisten jeder Art. Die reformistischen Kräfte wollen das Volk dazu bringen, daß es vorn Kampf für die Verteidigung seiner Interessen abläßt.
Diejenigen, die mit ihrer Tätigkeit nur halbherzige und zeitweilige Lösungen für die wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Probleme finden wollen, nehmen objektiv an der Stärkung der Imperialistischen Herrschaft in Dahomey teil.
Folglich stellt die Partei die Aufgabe des Kampfes gegen das Bündnis der Reformisten mit dem Imperialismus. Das Scheitern dieses Bündnisses wird den Massen noch mehr Klarheit verschaffen und die Einheit ihres Handelns um die KP Dahomeys noch stärken.
Die KP Dahomeys stellt die Rolle der marxistisch-leninistischen Partei als Führerin in der Revolution heraus und betont dabei, daß ohne Partei der Arbeiterklasse keine wirklich revolutionäre Propaganda gemacht werden, daß die revolutionäre Theorie ohne sie nicht umgesetzt werden kann.
Über die Bedeutung der revolutionären Situation heißt es in dem Artikel der Zeitung "La Flamme":

Hunderttausende von Menschen machen die Revolution nicht auf Befehl. Sie machen sie, weil das Elend auf ihren Schultern
lastet, wenn das Volk in einer unerträglichen Lage ist. Der allgemeine Druck, der WiIle Hunderttausender Menschen beseitigt die alten Hindernisse in der Revolution zum Aufbau eines neuen Lebens. In dieser Hinsicht stellt die KP Dahomeys heraus, daß die gegenwärtige neokolonialistische Situation zu nichts anderem führt, als daß die Bevölkerung mit jedem Tag mehr ins Elend gestürzt wird. In diesem Rahmen äußern die Marxisten-Leninisten Dahomeys ihr unerschütterliche Vertrauen daauf, daß das Volk sich ohne Zweifel zur Revolution erheben wird. Diesen unvermeidlichen Ausweg aus den schweren
wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Bedingungen des Volkes von Dahomey wiIl die KP Dahomeys auf Grundlage wissenschaftlicher Analysen mit täglichen Tatsachen beweisen.
Das Ziel der Arbeiterklasse ist es, das Volk für alle sozialen
Gegensätze, die es erlebt , aufzuklären. Und wenn es heute noch nicht alle verstehen, so werden sie es morgen mit Sicherheit auf der Grundlage ihrer Erfahrung erkennen. In der Wirklichkeit zeigt sich, daß das Wort der KP Dahomeys langsam aber sicher in die Volksmassen eindringt, trotz der scharfen
Maßnahmen gegen die Parteimitglieder und Sympathisanten. Ein Beweis für den anwachsenden Einfluß der KP Dahomeys unter den Massen ist auch die Tatsache, dass immer mehr Menschen nach der Partei fragen, sie kennenlernen wollen ihren Charakter und die Interessen welcher Klasse sie vertritt.
Sie verstehen, daß eine neue politische Kraft geboren wurde. Sie lesen begierig das Programm der Partei und bewundern den Mut der Kommunisten, die zu kämpfen wagen.
Die KP Dahomeys ist davon überzeugt , daß, je mehr sie mit den Massen arbeitet, je mehr sie in ihrem Kampf führt, diese ver-stehen werden, dass es in ihren Reihen nur mutige, kampfbereite Soldaten des Volkes gibt, die bereit sind, alles zu opfern, die der Sache der national-demokratischen und
wahrhaft anti-imperialistischen Volksrevolution vollkommen ergeben sind.
