Greeting Message of the Comintern (SH)

on occasion of the

200th anniversary

of Frederick Engels

Today we celebrate the 200th birthday of Friedrich Engels.

We send our militant greetings to the comrades all over the world.

Today the world proletariat celebrates the 200th birthday of the brilliant thinker and revolutionary, Friedrich Engels, the second classic of Marxism-Leninism. Together with Kal Marx, Friedrich Engels was the founder of the science of the liberation of the world proletariat and all oppressed, the co-founder of the science of the establishment of the communist world society.

The Comintern (SH) is today the rightful heir to the great legacy of Marx and Engels. In 2018 and in this year, 2020, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Marx and Engels, the high duty arose for us to carefully preserve the legacy of Marx and Engels, to spread it worldwide and to protect it against all falsifications. For this purpose we have published this year the text : "Friedrich Engels - about the fight against opportunism".

We have the largest online archive of Marx and Engels in more than 50 languages of the world and have published this year, and especially today, more new texts by Engels, as well as 3 beautiful illustrated books (1. "Karl Marx", 2. "Friedrich Engels"; 3. "Marx-Engels").

Thus the Comintern (SH) has made an important contribution to raising the class consciousness of today's world proletariat and has upheld the spirit of proletarian internationalism, which was shaped by Marx and Engels.

The teachings of Friedrich Engels, which he developed together with Karl Marx, bear the name of Marxism. Marx and Engels created the first Marxist world program, the "Manifesto of the Communist Party"-the birth certificate of scientific communism and the modern labor movement.

For Friedrich Engels, science was not an end in itself, but - as he said - "a historically moving, revolutionary force".

With the elaboration of dialectical and historical materialism, Marx and Engels discovered the objective developmental laws of nature and society, of class society, which is divided into exploiting and exploited classes. In this antagonistic class society, the class struggle of the proletariat is the driving force for the emergence of the classless, communist world society.

Marx and Engels scientifically proved that the proletariat fulfills its historical role as the gravedigger of capitalism and as the builder of socialism on the ruins of the shattered capitalist exploitative order.

The working class has historically given practical proof of the correctness and truth of the teachings of Marx and Engels, namely that the economic, political and ideological class struggle of the proletariat leads to its political power, to the dictatorship of the proletariat, to the destruction of the exploitative order of capitalism and to the building of socialism.

Marxism is not a dogma, but a guide for us to prepare, organize, carry out and defend the victory of world socialist revolution.

In its creative development to Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhaism, therein lies the inexhaustible vitality of Marxism, the revolutionary character of the world outlook of the proletariat.

No other doctrine has become more deeply rooted in the working class than Marxism. Under the banner of Marx and Engels, the proletarians of all countries began to unite.

And under the banner of Stalinism-Hoxhaism, the world proletariat today unites all countries in world socialist revolution.

Friedrich Engels is a never extinguishing guiding star that illuminates the way to world communism and leads us from the "realm of necessity to the realm of freedom".


Long live the 200th Birthday of Frederick Engels, the 2nd Classic of Marxism-Leninism!

Long live the invincible teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha!

Long live the armed world socialist revolution and armed dictatorship of world proletariat!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the Comintern (SH)!

Decision of the Comintern (SH)

On the

200th Birthday of Friedrich Engels in 2020


Comrades !

The Comintern (SH) herewith declares to celebrate the 200th anniversary of FRIEDRICH ENGELS in 2020.

All Sections of the Comintern (SH) are now called upon to put the 200th anniversary of FRIEDRICH ENGELS and its meaning for the preparation and implementation of the world socialist revolution at the center of their entire agitation, propaganda and activities during the whole year 2020.

Long live the 200th anniversary of FRIEDRICH ENGELS!

With world communist greetings

Comintern (SH)

28 November 2019


How do we implement this decision ?

The annual period for the implementation of this decision dates from 1st of January 2020 until 31st of December 2020.

The decision of the Comintern (SH) points out that party activities and party life of the year 2020 should be focused on FRIEDRICH ENGELS as far as possible.

Similar is the yearly international First May, which however, distinguishes in so far that the 1st May activity is organized for only one day in the year, while this campaign of the 200th birthday of FRIEDRICH ENGELS lasts for a whole year.

We learn from our "200 Years Karl Marx"-Campaign how to cope with this new challenge.

For us, this campaign is not limitted in historical reviews of the work and life of FRIEDRICH ENGELS. In the center is our task to implement the teachings of Marxism in the service of the world socialist revolution namely through its modification under present conditions. What is modification of Marxism under changing conditions of the development of the world society ?

Stalin taught us:

"The textualists and Talmudists regard Marxism and separate conclusions and formulas of Marxism as a collection of dogmas, which "never" change, notwithstanding changes in the conditions of the development of society. They believe that if they learn these conclusions and formulas by heart and start citing them at random, they will be able to solve any problem, reckoning that the memorized conclusions and formulas will serve them for all times and countries, for all occasions in life. But this can be the conviction only of people who see the letter of Marxism, but not its essence, who learn by rote the texts of conclusions and formulas of Marxism, but do not understand their meaning.

Marxism is the science of the laws governing the development of nature and society, the science of the revolution of the oppressed and exploited masses, the science of the victory of socialism in all countries, the science of building communist society. As a science, Marxism cannot stand still, it develops and is perfected. In its development, Marxism cannot but be enriched by new experience, new knowledge -- consequently some of its formulas and conclusions cannot but change in the course of time, cannot but be replaced by new formulas and conclusions, corresponding to the new historical tusks. Marxism does not recognize invariable conclusions and formulas, obligatory for all epochs and periods. Marxism is the enemy of all dogmatism." (Stalin, 1950, problems of linguistics)

We learn from Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha, how they further developed Marxism scientifically and how they mastered its further development successfully in practice.

Without Marxism there was no Leninism, without Leninism no Stalinism and without Stalinism no Hoxhaism. Every further development of the proletarian ideology is always rooted in Marxism.

If we want - under today's conditions of globalization - further develop the proletarian ideology which was created and further developed by the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism - then we must go back to our roots. The growing and prospering of the proletarian ideology cannot withstand the storms of global class struggle if we are not firmly rooted in the proletarian ideology. Marxism is the roots, is the germ ("germ-an") cell of the proletarian ideology. Our communist world movement began with Marxism, goes on in the spirit of Marxism and will not triumph all over the world without Marxism.

If we would not correctly apply modified Marxism, we could neither apply Leninism correctly, nor Stalinism and Hoxhaism. Therefore, the 200th birthday of FRIEDRICH ENGELS will be in first line a valuable school by which we equip at first ourselves, us revolutionaries, then the most advanced elements of the world proletariat, the working class in every country and finally the masses all over the world.

In particular, Marxism is the very first basis for the ideological, political and organizational construction of the Comintern (SH). The proletarian International, the First International, was in its first stage a Marxist International which was also the basis for the foundation of the Second International. The next stage of the further development of the proletarian International was its Leninist stage. The Comintern was founded on the basis of Leninism and further developed through Stalinism. And, as it is written in the name of our today's proletarian International, the Comintern (SH), we base ourselves on the most advanced development of the proletarian ideology, on Stalinism-Hoxhaism.

In 2020 we will sharpen our ideological weapon of Stalinism-Hoxhaism with its roots - Marxism !

We Stalinist-Hoxhaists cannot defend Marxism without defending Stalinism-Hoxhaism. And in return, we cannot defend Stalinism-Hoxhaism without defending Marxism. Stalinism-Hoxhaism is in essence nothing but further advanced Marxism, namely Marxism on its highest stage of development.

This will be a heavy blow against all liquidatory ideologists who spread the lie that Stalinism-Hoxhaism would allegedly be a "falsification", "deviation" or even an ideology of "withdrawl" from Marxism. It is the so called National-"Bolshevism" which is in essence purification of Stalinism from Marxism. And it is us Stalinist-Hoxhaists who have unmasked this anti-Marxist ideology - and nobody else in this world.

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is not at all an ideology in opposite to Marxism. In the contrary. Stalinism-Hoxhaism is in so far identically with Marxism, as it is scientifically modified under present conditions of globalization. Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the victorious ideology of the world proletariat for the transition from world imperialism to world socialism - as the indispensable step for entering the classless world, as the first period of world communism.

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is today's ideological guide for the practical implementation of the Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels.

Stalinism-Hoxhaism is the theory and tactics of the world proletarian revolution, in general, and the theory and tactics of the dictatorship of the world proletariat, in particular.

This campaign is centrally organized by the Comintern (SH) and jointly supported by her Sections.

We call for all true communists of the world: Support the "FRIEDRICH ENGELS-Campaign" in 2020 !

Long live the 200th birthday of FRIEDRICH ENGELS !


The following

8 central tasks

can be also helpful for planning Sections' own obligatory campaign activities.


Events of the whole "Red Calendar 2020" deal directly and indirectly with their special meaning in context with FRIEDRICH ENGELS.



Greeting messages should deal directly and indirectly with their special meaning in context with the 200th birthday of FRIEDRICH ENGELS.



Our statements and appeals on current events of the world, in 2020, should preferably refer to FRIEDRICH ENGELS.



All our theoretical work will be concentrated on the current meaning of Marxism and its defense against its falsification through all hues of opportunism, especially against all sorts of neo-revisionism.Marxism in words, and anti-Marxism in deeds - this is the phenomenology of revisionism.
Revisionism is bourgeois ideology which disguises with the help of the formal bases of Marxism for the purpose to bring Marxism into line with the bourgeois ideology, thus to liquidate its revolutionary spirit.

The neo-revisionists differ only in so far from the open revisionists that they hide themselves behind their mask of "defenders" of Marxism against revisionism. It is our task to tear down this neo-revisionist mask.



Our organizational work will be related to the slogan "FRIEDRICH ENGELS Contingent", namely a slogan for summoning and recruiting new comrades and sympathizers under the banner of the proletarian ideology. In last consequence, struggle for the heritage of FRIEDRICH ENGELS can mean nothing but struggle for the future communist world.



Winning and educating new members of the Sections in the year 2020. To recruit the most advanced elements of the working class must be achieved by starting the work of the whole party in the trade unions and in the factories. FRIEDRICH ENGELS' scientific teachings of the economical basis of the exploitation of the proletarian class must be applied in the present economical struggle, from which is derived the political struggle for the complete emancipation of the working class.



All our "mass"-organisations must actively support our FRIEDRICH ENGELS Campaign:




In 2020, the Comintern (SH) will intensify the publication of the works of/on FRIEDRICH ENGELS in as much as possible languages of the world.


* * *

Dear comrades,

We are no sectarians and dogmatists who implement our tasks for the 200th birthday of FRIEDRICH ENGELS in a mechanic way. Not every task of our party can be labled with "FRIEDRICH ENGELS" for a period of one year. Exceptions confirm the rule. With other words: Our campaign should not lead to neglecting all the other tasks of our party. Our campaign should not replace all other activities of the party but help us stepping forward in our struggle for the World Socialist Revolution.

We are not forced to implement our campaign "on a gut level". We can resort to a lot of excellent sources of the Marx-Engels Archive of the Comintern (SH) . We have already published

1 400 books of/on Marxism in 82 languages (!!). It is actually the greatest Marx-Engels-Archive in the world. This proves that our campaign in 2020 is not at all a "one-year wonder".

It is our task in 2020 to make comprehensively use of our achieved treasures of publications. Moreover, this does not mean that we will stop or close our propaganda for FRIEDRICH ENGELS after having fulfilled our tasks of the 2020-Campaign. No, we will continue it for any time!

All our "FRIEDRICH ENGELS treasures" which we have already collected and published, should be optimally used and applied for our 2020-Campaign. And this requires also enough time for our own studying the works of FRIEDRICH ENGELS. Just achieving Publications is not an end in itself. The deepest meaning of our own publications is to study and implement them seriously in practice!! The works of FRIEDRICH ENGELS are instruction for global revolutionary action:

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it". (Karl Marx)

The point is to implement our "FRIEDRICH ENGELS" Campaign in 2020 with greatest success.

* * *


During the campaign, the Comintern (SH) is available for all your questions, critiques proposals and improvements.


As a contribution to the implementation of party activities we will publish a new facebook site:

The life and work of Friedrich Engels

is inextricably linked to

the life and work of Karl Marx.

It is only the bourgeois revisionist historians who continue to try to divide Marx and Engels apart and to construct opposites between Marx and Engels. Some claim that Engels only made Marxism "popular," while others go so far as to claim that Engels "revised" and "vulgarized" Marxism. This tactic of the bourgeois ideologists is not new: "Hitting Marxism by means of pummelling Engels."

Attempts are made to set Marx and Engels against each other, in order to attack the inner unity of the doctrine of Marxism with the aim of adapting proletarian ideology to bourgeois ideology, to undermine the Marxist influence in the working class.

Using the same tactics, the bourgeoisie then tried to contrast Leninism with Marxism as a "deviant" ideology, to condemn Stalinism as a "deviation" from Leninism, and today to declare Stalinism-Hoxhaism "incompatible" with Marxism-Leninism, respectively to equate them.

All these attempts by the open and hidden enemies of proletarian ideology were and are doomed to failure. For, just as Engels defended Marxism victoriously after the death of Marx, so did Lenin after the death of Engels. Stalin victoriously defended Leninism after Lenin's death and Enver Hoxha, after Stalin's death, had victoriously defended Stalinism. And so we Stalinists-Hoxhaists today defend Stalinism-Hoxhaism.

The further development of proletarian ideology will continue to live in the minds and hearts of the revolutionary world proletariat and serve as a guide to the world socialist revolution. Just as the 5 Classics of Marxism-Lenism have faithfully served world communism to the last breath, so we Stalinists-Hoxhaists must also be faithful to world communism to the last breath. In this sense, we keep the revolutionary banner of Friedrich Engels high and higher.

We are celebrating the 199th birthday of Friedrich Engels in anticipation of the "Friedrich Engels Year 2020", thus in preparation for his 200th birthday, which we want to celebrate just like we have done this with the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx.

Long live the 199th Birthday of Frederick Engels, the 2nd Classic of Marxism-Leninism!

Long live the invincible teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism: Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha!

Long live the armed world socialist revolution and armed dictatorship of world proletariat!

Long live world socialism and world communism!

Long live the Comintern (SH)!
