Greeting message

of the Comintern (SH)

to the Albanian Section

Long live the 79th anniversary of the founding of the Party of Labour of Albania
the 6th anniversary of the founding of the Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH)!

Dear comrades !

On the occasion of the 79th anniversary of the founding of Albania's glorious Labor Party and the 5th year of the founding of the Albanian Section, we would like to extend our sincere congratulations to you, to all Albanian Hoxhaists and to the entire Albanian people.

After a hard struggle against all fractionist and opportunist currents that insisted on the "group" system and opposed the unity of the Communists in the Communist Party, the Communist Party of Albania was founded on November 8-14, 1941 under the leadership of Comrade Enver Hoxha.
The decisive factors of these successes were:

1. The correct leadership by the Party of Labor of Albania, which creatively applies Marxism-Leninism to the concrete conditions of the country, always places politics first, deepens the class struggle, especially on the ideological front, and builds socialism to continue on a revolutionary path to prevent the restoration of capitalism.

2. The preservation and consolidation of the people's power, the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the leading role of the working class in the life of the country. The fact that bureaucracy was being fought and that socialist democracy was being widened and that the masses were increasingly being involved in the governance of the state and the economy.

3. The social ownership of the means of production, the abolition of all forms of exploitation, the constant improvement of the socialist relations of production.

4. The planned and proportional development of the economy and the adherence to the principle of centralized and planned management of the economy.
In the totality of all these great victories, the struggle of the Party of Labor must be emphasized for the creation of the new man, the man of socialist consciousness and high proletarian morality who refrains from giving up the revolution and in the name of the defense of the Fatherland and the Achievements of the socialist revolution to great privations and sacrifices, who thinks, works and lives as a revolutionary.
The Party of Labor has always emphasized the great importance of the revolutionary education of the masses. "The masses build socialism, the party educates them" - in this motto Comrade Enver Hoxha had summarized the relationship of the party to the masses in building socialism. This revolutionary education of the people by the party did not come from the cathedra, but in the class struggle, which the working class and allied strata must continue with undiminished acuteness, even after the conquest of political power under the dictatorship of the proletariat.
The vigilance and determination with which the Albanian people led the class struggle under the leadership of its Party of Labor was the decisive cause for the failure of all attempts by modern revisionism to divert Albania from the socialist way of forcing it onto the path of restoration of capitalism.
With their principled struggle against modern revisionism, the Party of Labor and Comrade Enver Hoxha have earned invaluable services to the communist world movement. They have shown the world's Communists the path of unwavering adherence to Marxism-Leninism and uncompromising separation from the revisionist traitors.


Dear Albanian comrades !

From 8th of November 2014 on, the Albanian communists think, discuss, decide and act with a new spirit of proletarian internationalism, with a global style and method, because they have founded the Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH).

Why has the Albanian Section be founded ?

Capitalism in Albania cannot be separated from world capitalism. The liberation of Albania from capitalism is part of the global liberation from world capitalism. The Albanian socialist revolution cannot be separated from the world socialist revolution. It is part of it, serves it.

The Comintern (SH) needs its Albanian Section to tie the socialist revolution in Albania with the the world socialist revolution.

Just as the Albanian proletariat is part of the world proletariat, the Albanian Section is part of the Comintern (SH).

We struggle for the re-establishment of the Albanian dictatorship of the proletariat as part of the establishment of the dictatorship of the world proletariat.

This was and is the reason why the Albanian Section was founded.

Above all it is these principles which will guide your work which have and must have priority for you. These principles must be unsullied, always according to the precepts of our great teachers Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha. The principles of Stalinism-Hoxhaism are the principles which must foster and guide the political, ideological, organizational and military opinions and actions of the Albanian Section.

Dear Albanian comrades !

We repeat our words which we sent to you in our greeting message from the last year because they have not lost their current meaning.

The Comintern (SH) likes to thank you for your revolutionary activities during the fifth year after the creation of your Section.
All comrades of the Comintern (SH), all Sections, congratulate you today on your fifth anniversary.

The 8th of November 1941 was the turning point in the history of the Albanian people, when the foundation of socialist Albania was laid.

And November 8, 2014 was another turning point in the history of the Albanian people, when you laid the foundation for the restoration of socialist Albania.

We are serious! Do not give up the fight for the strengthening of the Albanian Section !

The Albanian Section has deadened its contact with the Comintern (SH) since a couple of years. We have to say this openly in this greeting message because there is no other choice for us. Not only the comrades of all our Sections have a right to get to know this fact, but also every revolutionary worker all over the world. We are Bolsheviks and do not fear to tell the truth about our weaknesses..

Help us to overcome the interrupted cooperation between the Comintern (SH) and its Albanian Section. Let's overcome everything that prevents us from cooperation between the Comintern (SH) and the Albanian Section. At the moment there is no contact of Albanian communists with the Comintern (SH) - although we sent one enquiry after another to them without getting any response. We can not explain ourselves such behavior.

Therefore it is absolutely necessary that the Albanian comrades make contact with the Comintern (SH). Otherwise the further existence of the Albanian Section will be endangered.
You, the Albanian comrades from the homeland of comrade Enver Hoxha have a role model for all comrades all over the world. You can not fall behind when the world proletariat marches in step with the world socialist revolution. Our Sections are primarily responsible for publicizing the Comintern (SH) in their native language. Unfortunately, in the past 5 years the Albanian Section has not fulfilled this basic task. That can not go on like this.

We have practiced solidarity with the Albanian communists since 50 years and supported the Albanian Section since its founding five years ago. In return, we ask the comrades of the Albanian Section:

What is your contribution of solidarity with the Comintern (SH) in the passed 5 years which we miss so dearly?

This question moves the revolutionary heart of the whole world proletariat. Therefore, we practice solidary criticism at our Albanian comrades in order to remind them of their duties to their world party, namely to propagate actively the Comintern (SH) in their Albanian homeland.

Anyway. We let you know that we are still in solidarity with you. We have great respect towards the heroic deeds of the Albanian comrades and will never let them in the lurch. We know, your most painful experience was the loss of happy life in a socialist society. We share your hatred against all those traitors who betrayed and destroyed your beloved socialist homeland. We support your firm determination to turn your hatred into the revolutionary struggle for the re-establishment of socialism in Albania. Socialism was achieved by blood and sweat of the Albanian people. And it will cost even more blood and sweat for the restoration of the dictatorship of the proletariat. However, we communists all over the world are convinced about the fact that the Albanian people who have built up socialism, will also be victoriously reconquer their socialist achievements. That's what the enemies of the Albanian people fear most. And that's why they are not tired of slinging mud at you. But you have proved to never give up your struggle against anti-communism in Albania. You rely on the invincible ideological weapon of Stalinism-Hoxhaism, on the glorious heritage of the Party of Labour of Albania, and on international support from all comrades of the Comintern (SH).

The Albanian Section, which was founded five years ago, must march without hesitation onto the glorious path of the Party of Labour of Albania with comrade Enver Hoxha at the head.

The Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH) must always be better connected with the Albanian working class and the Albanian people with each new year. One day you will lead the class struggle to victory. The day will come when the dictatorship of the Albanian bourgeoisie will be overthrown, when the foreign imperialists will be expelled, and the dictatorship of the proletariat re-established under the revolutionary banner of Comrade Enver Hoxha.

We know that you Albanian comrades must fight under difficult conditions of illegality. You are threatened by the social-fascists who dare to block the influence of the Comintern (SH) in Albania. The open and hidden social-fascists try to discredit our members and to keep them away from their struggle for the socialist revolution.

Be watchful, comrades!

Adhere strictly to the rules of illegality that Enver's Party has taught you during its glorious liberation war against the fascist occupiers and their quislings! The Comintern (SH) and all her Sections stand solidly at your side and support you with all our strength.

Today, the Albanian people experience the consequences of the world capitalist crisis firsthand, and they will protest, fight and rise up. In order to unify the liberation struggle of the Albanian people under your communist banner, it is necessary that you build up a strong Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH).

We know, that you Albanian comrades are still suffering from the current situation of the split within the Albanian Communist Movement. It is therefore the most urgent task of the Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH) to overcome the primitiveness of individual circle-groups who are competing among each other instead of beating jointly the rule of the capitalist bourgeoisie. The split of the various groups means a weakening of the Albanian communist movement as a whole. It is necessary to establish a revolutionary united front under the joint banner of Comrade Enver Hoxha.

What did comrade Enver Hoxha say on 8th of November, 1941 ?

«The past of the communist groups must be made a lesson for us. Group spirit cannot exist. This situation must be ended!"

This situation is not different from today's situation.

Just as in times before the founding of the PLA, the communist movement of today in Albania is still split into many groups and parties.

Only through the struggle for unity can the Albanian communist movement be transformed into strength. However, the unity of the Communist in Albania can only be achieved in the struggle against opportunism - against the opportunists and not together with the opportunists. This is exactly what comrade Enver Hoxha did in 1941 and what we have to do today, too - namely the overcoming of opportunism which hinders us from forming the unity of the communist movement and the further development of the Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH).

The unity of the Albanian Communists rests on the common will and on the common action to turn Albania back into a socialist country. But that is not yet the decisive point. The decisive factor is revolutionary unity for the armed overthrow of the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie. A new socialist Albania can flourish only through the violent socialist revolution. Unity can therefore only exist with those forces which follow the revolutionary path of the Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH) which is guided by the teachings of Stalinism-Hoxhaism.

Therefore it is indispensable to draw a clear line tirelessly and obstinately between us and the Albanian opportunists, the lackeys of the Albanian social-fascists.

The unity of the Albanian Communists will be successful only on the basis of Stalinism-Hoxhaism.

Dear Albanian comrades !

The PLA with Enver Hoxha at the head has taught you everything how the revolutionary struggle for socialism in Albania is to be conducted. It is now important to implement these valuable teachings consistently, and to strengthen the Comintern (SH) in Albania.

The Comintern (SH) and her Sections wish the Albanian Section a lot of success, courage and endurance. We are sure that you will overcome all difficulties in the future , namely in the same way as the PLA has overcome all difficulties in the past.

The victory will be ours if we follow firmly the banner of comrade Enver Hoxha!

Honor and glory to the 79th anniversary of the PLA!

Long live comrade Enver Hoxha - the 5th Classic of Marxism-Leninism!

Long live Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha!

Long live the world socialist revolution !

Long live the socialist revolution in Albania!

Long live the 6th anniversary of the Albanian Section of the Comintern (SH) !

Long live the unity of all Albanian communists under the banner of Stalinism-Hoxhaism!

Long live the Comintern (SH) and her Sections!

On the Foundations and concerning Questions of Hoxhaism







excerpts from:

"When the party was born"


There was no time to lose, the 8th of November was ahead of us.


In the darkness of the night before the dawn of 8 November, we set out for the small house which was awaiting us. In these reminiscences I shall not describe it, because the house where the Communist Party of Albania was founded has now become an outstanding monument of our country, known to young and old in Albania, as well as to thousands and thousands of foreign friends, comrades and visitors. All the surrounding lanes and alleys were guarded by calm and resolute armed comrades. Earlier, careful investigations had been made of all the families around the house. They were families of poor workers, apprentices and patriots.

In the darkness of the night we entered the small house one by one, in order and in silence. All the windows had been sealed from inside with blankets. No light could be seen. No sound could be heard. Complete illegality. We entered that small house with great hopes, with indescribable joy and confidence, but I tell you frankly, overriding all this we felt a certain anxiety. Undoubtedly each of us, coming there with the great desire for the formation of the Party, asked himself: «How will things go? Will we achieve our sacred aim?»

«I invite the meeting to honour the memory of all those communist comrades and other brave fighters, Albanians and foreigners, who have fallen and are falling on the battlefield fighting against fascism for the peoples' freedom."

"For our part we are convinced that the discussion which will take place in this meeting will be fruitful, but this depends on all of us."

"Above all it is the principles which will guide our work which have and must have priority for us. These principles must be unsullied, always according to the precepts of our great teachers Marx. Engels, Lenin and Stalin. These are the principles which must foster and guide our political, ideological, organizational and military opinions and actions, first of all, and then those of all Albanian communists."

"We should keep nothing back in the corners of our minds, but should honestly lay on the table everything that we have in our minds and hearts."

«The past of the communist groups must be made a lesson for us."

"We must organize the armed struggle as quickly as possible. It is up to us communists to prepare, organize and lead the general uprising. But how can we organize and lead it? Split into groups, divided with all kinds of opinions as we are, when there is no co-ordination of our actions ? We of the Korça group think we should go on like this no longer. "

"Everything must be done in an organized way. We must judge everything and act in everything in the way our Marxist-Leninist ideology shows us, following the example of the Bolshevik Party. This ideology must guide our meeting today, which, I think, cannot achieve the results we are aiming at if it is guided by the unhealthy spirit of groups."

«In order to put an end to this group spirit, first of all we must decide to dissolve the groups and form the Communist Party of Albania."

«Let us form the Communist Party of Albania on the basis of the mandates which the comrades of the groups gave us before we came to this meeting and, after first deciding solemnly and unanimously to found the Communist Party of Albania, let us continue the debate and discussion."

"Comrades, we cannot put off this main objective another moment longer. The time and the situation demand the immediate formation of our Communist Party of the new Lenin-Stalin type.

This time we communists will think, discuss, decide and act with a new spirit, with another style and method, because from now on we and all our comrades will have our Communist Party."

" Were Lenin still alive or if we had the possibility to ask Stalin, they would certainly advise us: 'First form your communist party, because you have dragged matters up long enough, then make Bolshevik self-criticism, set new tasks, and go forward into battle and to victory as the vanguard of the working class.' "

"We are going to create a party of the Lenin-Stalin type, in which factions and the group spirit, such as they have been amongst us up till now, cannot exist. This situation must be ended! In our new party which we're going to found we must establish unity of thought and action and not impose the will of one or the other."

"Our party will be guided by one theory, by the theory of Marx and Lenin; any deviation from it and the bearers of the deviations will be punished mercilessly. In our party there will be democracy in the expression of opinions, but there will also be discipline and centralism. We will discuss and decide on these matters one by one and will also decide on the structure of the party, what forms its cells and committees will have."

«Comrades, on the basis of the proposal of the Communist Group of Korça and the opinions expressed by all present, I am putting the following resolution to the vote:

'Today on November 8, 1941, the representatives of three communist groups, of Korça, Shkodra and the 'Youth', meeting in plenary session and after constructive discussion in the communist spirit, basing themselves on the mandate given them by the comrades of their groups, founded the Communist Party of Albania.'

All in favour raise their hands.»

"All present raised their hands. There was no vote against or abstention. All of us were filled with indescribable joy. The main step, the decisive task which we had set ourselves when we set out for this historic meeting, had been crowned with success!"

«The Communist Party of Albania has been founded unanimously.

Long live the Communist Party of Albania!»

"Happy and deeply moved all of us rose to our feet, raised our clenched fists in salute and under the light of the kerosene lamp sang The Internationale, keeping our vioces low, and then cheered and cheered for the Communist Party of Albania."

"Thus, on the night of November 8, 1941, our Party was born, the Party which was to lead the Albanian people in the greatest battles of their whole history. It was born from the bosom of the people, from their revolutionary fire and ardour undimmed through the centuries, it emerged like a sun shining through the hideous darkness of the fascist enslavement and terror which had engulfed the people and the Homeland."

"... The house, which was founded by the Communist Party of Albania, is already an outstanding monument of the country, who know the young and old in Albania, as well as thousands of foreign friends, colleagues and guests, "- wrote about this place in his memoirs," When the party was born, "Comrade Enver Hoxha ( "Selected Works", Volume VI, the publishing house "NENTORI 8", Tirana, 1988) 2012., the translation of verses from the Albanian - Sardushkin ).
