Message of the Comintern (SH) on occasion of the 91th anniversary of comrade Lenin’s death day

January 21, 1924 – January 21, 2015


91 years ago, comrade Lenin died - on 21st of January 1924.

This was 19 years after the Bloody Sunday of 1905, that happened in Russia 110 years ago, on 22nd of January 1905.

On occasion of the First Russian Revolution, in 1905, comrade Lenin continued the theoretical works of Marx and Engels on the principles of the armed uprising.

Comrade Lenin taught:

''Revolution is war.

Of all the wars known in history it is the only lawful, rightful, just and great war.

In Russia this war has been declared and begun.''
– Lenin, 1905.

"The struggle of December 1905 proved that armed uprising can be victorious in modern conditions of military technique and military organisation. As a result of the December struggle the whole international labour movement must henceforth reckon with the probability of similar forms of fighting in the coming proletarian revolutions. These are the conclusions which really follow from the experience of our revolution: these are the lessons which the broadest masses of the people should assimilate." (Lenin, Volume 15, page 60).

"The proletariat must carry to completion the democratic revolution, by allying to itself the mass of the peasantry in order to crush by force the resistance of the autocracy and to paralyse the instability of the bourgeoisie. The proletariat must accomplish the socialist revolution, by allying to itself the mass of the semi-proletarian elements of the population in order to crush by force the resistance of the bourgeoisie and to paralyse the instability of the peasantry and the petty bourgeoisie" (Lenin, Volume 9, page 100).

These principles of transforming the democratic revolution into the socialist revolution is still valid for many peoples who struggle for the democratic revolution today, and this must be applied to the democratic revolutions, specially in the Arab World, also in Kurdistan and Ukraine.

Without transformation of democratic revolutions into socialist revolutions, especially in the Arab World, the world proletariat cannot march forward to the victory of the socialist world revolution. The study of the lessons of comrade Lenin on the First Russian Revolution, 1905-1907, are indispensable for the success of the coming revolutions all over the world.

On occasion of the 91st Day of Death, the Comintern (SH) publishes the works of comrade Lenin on the First Russian Revolution, 1905-1907, in several languages of the world. Besides we publish this historical event on the following new website:

 

"The First Russian Revolution, 1905 - 1907"

 

 

On the 28th of January 1924, comrade Stalin called Lenin:

 

"THE GENIUS OF REVOLUTION"

"Lenin was born for revolution. He was, in truth, the genius of revolutionary outbreaks and the greatest master of the art of revolutionary leadership. Never did he feel so free and happy as in a time of revolutionary upheavals. I do not mean by this that Lenin approved equally of all revolutionary upheavals, or that he was in favour of revolutionary outbreaks at all times and under all circumstances. Not at all. What I do mean is that never was the genius of Lenin's insight displayed so fully and distinctly as in a time of revolutionary outbreaks. In times of revolution he literally blossomed forth, became a seer, divined the movement of classes and the probable zigzags of the revolution, seeing them as if they lay in the palm of his hand. It was with good reason that it used to be said in our Party circles: "Lenin swims in the tide of revolution like a fish in water. Hence the "amazing" clarity of Lenin's tactical slogans and the "breath-taking" boldness of his revolutionary plans. The insight of genius, the ability rapidly to grasp and divine the inner meaning of impending events this was the quality of Lenin which enabled him to lay down the correct strategy and a clear line of conduct at turning points of the revolutionary movement. "


We, Stalinist-Hoxhaists, must always remember that the First Russian Revolution of 1905 was the forerunner of the October Revolution, and the October Revolution of 1917 was the forerunner of world socialist revolution which must be continued and completed until its final, total and definitive triumph! But this can only be achieved if we remain faithful to comrade Lenin’s immortal and invincible teachings. Comrade Lenin will live forever in the hearts and minds of the world’s exploited and oppressed classes. He will live forever in the mind and heart of every communist. To uphold and defend Leninism means to uphold and defend Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhaism as a whole.


Long live immortal comrade Lenin, the 3rd Classic of Marxism-Leninism!

Long live Leninism – an infallible signpost for the world socialist revolution!

Long live the First Russian Revolution, 1905 - 1907 !

Long live the October Revolution !

Long live world socialist revolution!

Long live world proletarian dictatorship!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the Comintern (SH) – the only authentic defender and follower of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism:

Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha!

on occasion of the 110th anniversary of the "Bloody Sunday" - 22nd (9th) of January, 1905

and on occasion of the 91st Day of Death of Lenin

 


Events of the greatest historical importance are developing in Russia. The proletariat has risen against tsarism. The proletariat was driven to revolt by the government. There can hardly be any doubt now that the government deliberately allowed the strike movement to develop and a wide demonstration to be started more or less without hindrance in order to bring matters to a point where military force could be used. Its manoeuvre was successful. Thousands of killed and wounded — such is the toll of Bloody Sunday, January 9th, in St. Petersburg. The army defeated unarmed workers, women, and children. The army vanquished the enemy by shooting prostrate workers. “We have taught them a good lesson!” the tsar’s henchmen and their European flunkeys from among the conservative bourgeoisie say with consummate cynicism.

 

Yes, it was a great lesson, one which the Russian proletariat will not forget. The most uneducated, backward sections of the working class, who naïvely trusted the tsar and sincerely wished to put peacefully before “the tsar himself” the petition of a tormented people, were all taught a lesson by the troops led by the tsar or his uncle, the Grand Duke Vladimir. The working class has received a momentous lesson in civil war; the revolutionary education of the proletariat made more progress in one day than it could have made in months and years of drab, humdrum, wretched existence.

 

The slogan of the heroic St. Petersburg proletariat, “Death or freedom!” is reverberating throughout Russia. Events are developing with astonishing rapidity. The general strike in St. Petersburg is spreading. All industrial, public, and political activities are paralysed. On Monday, January 10th still more violent clashes occurred between the workers and the military. Contrary to the mendacious government reports, blood is flowing in many parts of the capital. The workers of Kolpino are rising. The proletariat is arming itself and the people. The workers are said to have seized the Sestroretsk Arsenal. They are providing themselves with revolvers, forging their tools into weapons, and procuring bombs for a desperate bid for freedom.

 

The general strike is spreading to the provinces. Ten thousand have already ceased work in Moscow, and a general strike has been called there for tomorrow (Thursday, January 13). An uprising has broken out in Riga. The workers are demonstrating in Lodz, an uprising is being prepared in Warsaw, proletarian demonstrations are taking place in Helsingfors. Unrest is growing among the workers and the strike is spreading in Baku, Odessa, Kiev, Kharkov, Kovno, and Vilna. In Sevastopol, the naval stores and arsenals are ablaze, and the troops refuse to shoot at the mutineers. Strikes in Revel and in Saratov. Workers and reservists clash with the troops in Radom.

 

The revolution is spreading. The government is beginning to lose its head. From the policy of bloody repression it is attempting to change over to economic concessions and to save itself by  throwing a sop to the workers or promising the nine-hour day. But the lesson of Bloody Sunday cannot be forgotten. The demand of the insurgent St. Petersburg workers – the immediate convocation of a Constituent Assembly on the basis of universal, direct, and equal suffrage by secret ballot – must become the demand of all the striking workers. Immediate overthrow of the government — this was the slogan with which even the St. Petersburg workers who had believed in the tsar answered the massacre of January 9th. They answered through their leader, the priest Georgi Gapon, who declared after that bloody day: “We no longer have a tsar. A river of blood divides the tsar from the people. Long live the fight for freedom!”

 

Long live the revolutionary proletariat! say we.
