Greeting Message


    To our comrades from

    Georgia, Germany, Portugal and Serbia

    who founded their Section of the Comintern (SH)

    on the 8th of November, 2011


    Dear Comrades,

    from Georgia, Germany, Portugal and Serbia!


    Congratulation !

    Since the beginning of the labour movement, the workers' struggle in the whole world was guided under the banner of Marx and Engels:

    "Workers of the world – unite!"

    The Comintern of Lenin and Stalin has implemented this famous slogan on the basis of Marxism-Leninism and united and organized the world proletariat successfully for the liberation from the yoke of world capitalism and for the creation of the new socialist workers' world. Lenin created a strong international alliance of revolutionary internationalists, to crush the betrayal of the Second International and to build a strong world revolutionary bastion, the III. International, the glorious Comintern. The Comintern of Lenin and Stalin is the shining example of a truly Bolshevik World Party, which we defend and continue until completion of its world-historic mission.

    The Comintern of Lenin and Stalin is alive! The Comintern' s re-creation took place on December 31, 2000. The once dissolved Comintern survived all types of revisionism. This was once again proved by the foundation of your Sections on November 8, 2011 ! Now, new hope and confidence of the revolutionary workers will grow - throughout the world for their victory over world capitalism, which had been clouded by the revisionists for decades. The new Sections have jointly raised the glorious banner of world communism ! You will defend it against any kind of revisionism and carry it on until victory !

    When the Comintern (SH) was founded on December 31 in 2000, we wrote in our founding declaration:


    "The Marxist-Leninists in the world have recognized that the founding of the Comintern (ML) can only take place on the ideological basis of our beloved Comrade Enver Hoxha and the Party of Labor of Albania."


    On the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the Albanian Party of Labour the Comintern (SH) invited all the comrades from Germany, Georgia, Portugal, Russia and Serbia to create their own sections with the slogan:

    "Let us follow - all together - the victorious path of the Party of Labor of Albania !"

    The Comintern (SH) was very happy to receive your declarations of foundation and is much obliged. Your declarations of foundation are true affirmations in regard of the declaration of foundation of the Comintern (SH) - namely, that you will build up your Sections "on the ideological foundations of our beloved Comrade Enver Hoxha and the Party of Labor of Albania".

    In your declarations of foundation we can read:


    Georgian Section:

    On November, 7th, 2011 the meeting of initiative group of the Stalinist-Hoxhaist Movement of Georgia (SHMG) has taken place. At the meeting was discussed the Comintern (SH) offer about transformation of Stalinist-Hoxhaist Movement of Georgia to Comintern (SH) - Section.
    The initiative group has unanimously supported this offer and has noticed that it is a big international recognition of Stalinist-Hoxhaist movement of Georgia.”


    German Section:

    The KPD (SH) was from the very start Section of the Comintern (SH), since 2000. On November 8, 2011, we decided to call ourselves only: 'German Section of the Comintern (SH)'. This was decided by recommendation of the Comintern (SH) - on occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the Party of Labour of Albania with comrade Enver Hoxha at the top.


    Portuguese Section:

    On 8th November of 2011, when we celebrate the 70º anniversary of the Party of Labour of Albania (PLA), the Portuguese Section of the Communist International (Stalinists-Hoxhaists) is founded.”


    Serbian Section:

    We, comrades from Serbia, decided to join class struggle on the General line of Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism-Hoxhism on November 8, 2011. We decided to join ONE WORLD PARTY and be Section of that Party: Comintern (SH).



    From now on, the anniversary of the Party of Labour of Albania is at the same time the anniversary of the founding of the Sections of the Comintern (SH). With the foundation of your Sections we can really call ourselves: "Communist International". This weakens all former accusations of our enemies, who call us a pure "sect". At each 8 November, we will celebrate permanently the birth of our Sections. And the Comintern (SH) is pleased if many new writings of comrade Enver Hoxha, the PLA and the socialist Albania are published in your local language as soon as possible. Similarly, we are grateful to you that you translate and publish the key documents of the Comintern (SH) in your local language.



    The Comintern (SH) required more than 10 years of existence, to work out solid foundations of its new Stalinist-Hoxhaist ideas under given conditions of globalization. The beginning with a solid ideological basis, this is fully corresponding to the Marxist-Leninist principles of building the Bolshevik Party. In the first 10 years, the size and width of the new Communist International was not at all decisive. Primarily it was necessary to create political and ideological clarity. Now, the revolutionary times have come in unavoidable consequence of the present crisis of capitalism. In response of this new challenge, the Comintern started to concentrate additionally on new organizational tasks. The analysis of the present revolutionary global conditions was not too difficult - the creation of the Sections was the only one and correct conclusion to cope with this challenge. It proved right that the Comintern (SH) had already developed its clear Stalinist-Hoxhaist line. This made it much easier to decide on creating ones own Sections. Other comrades sympathize and work closely with us since years, but they could or wanted not to make their decisions under such a pressure of time. Everybody will understand that Sections cannot be created simultaneously and in a single blow. The preconditions for the creation of Sections are different in different countries. We force no comrades to join us. This is their own free decision. The more successful the work and struggle of our Sections , the more this facilitates the decision of creating new Sections in further countries and the more we can support them to realize their goals.

    Our Sections, they will fight

    with one voice,

    with one rifle,

    with one heart -

    with ONE WORLD PARTY across all borders!


    We all live and die for the victory of the world socialist revolution!


    The victory of the world proletariat in the socialist world revolution is guaranteed under the leadership of the Comintern (SH), as long as we faithfully, disciplined and consistently stick to the teachings of the five Classics of Marxism-Leninism. This applies particularly to our Sections. The faith, unity and cohesion of the Comintern (SH) is dialectically based on and guaranteed by the faith, unity and cohesion of its sections.

    It depends essentially on the Sections whether the Comintern (SH) will achieve its global goals, because world capitalism is only eliminated if it will be also removed in each single country. Without the socialist revolutions in the countries there is no socialist world revolution. World-Socialism cannot be created without socialism in each single country. Only based on its Sections, the Comintern (SH) is able to lead and secure the world socialist revolution successfully.

    What part do the Sections play for the world socialist revolution?



    The Communist International has never agreed to cede its global leadership to any single Communist party of any country, or to certain trans-national alliances of Communist parties.

    The Communist International is the only Bolshevist vanguard of the whole world proletariat and decides on the world politics, completely in sovereignty.

    The Communist International is the General Staff, the Sections are the leaders of their countries.

    The Communist International and its Sections are fully in line with the Leninist norms and rules of the world's Bolshevik party ( democratic centralism, etc. etc.)

    The Sections acknowledge and follow the rules and norms of the World Bolshevik party in iron proletarian discipline. Primarily they have their share in strengthening and defending the Communist International.

    Proletarian internationalism means:

    Common interests of the proletarians of all countries take priority over the interests of the proletariat of a single country.

    Accordingly, the Communist International takes priority over its Sections.

    Vice versa:

    The proletarian internationalism is violated if the self-interests of the Sections, the self-interests of the proletarians of individual countries are excluded by the overall interests of the world proletariat.

    And so the Communist International is sentenced to death if the independent and sovereign participation and cooperation of the Sections will be ignored. Centralist and democratic norms and rules relate to each other dialectically. The one is impossible without the other.

    The Communist International cannot lead the world socialist revolution without the leaders of its Section in every single country.

    The Communist International needs the anchorage of its Sections in the proletariat of every country of the world because only they are predestinated to participate successfully in the world revolution under conditions of their own country.

    The Sections are the leaders of their proletarian detachment in the world socialist revolution.

    The Sections know at best the conditions of the workers "on site", the situation and forces of all classes in their country. They know and understand it best in their country the highest level of revolutionary forces of the proletarian world revolution to mobilize and provide the highest level of class struggle against all opponents in their own country. Just as the world proletariat, as a whole, trusts in the proletariat of every single country, the Communist International trusts in its Sections.

    vice versa:

    The Communist International provides to the revolution in each country the highest international clout against an international enemy; more than this: even if the proletariat of a definite country should not succeed to be victorious in its country during the first run of the socialist world revolution, even if the own revolution is not completed, so the world socialist revolution will ensure to provide full support and easily come to the rescue. With the victory of world socialist revolution all those chocks become cleared away which had led to the complication of the victorious revolution in precisely this or that country.


    One for all - all for one !“ This is the Section's slogan of the proletarian internationalism of all countries.


    It can't help building up the Communist International for the world socialist revolution because only this organization is capable to coordinate and lead centrally the revolutions of all countries . A revolutionary, Stalinist-Hoxhaist world organization of the world proletariat is indispensable. Without this world organization, the world proletariat is nothing. The Communist International is the party of the world proletariat, a party, united by the Sections of the countries in order to achieve the victory of the proletarian world revolution, without which victory of revolution in one country cannot be guaranteed.

    Despite their competition in the global labour market, despite its cleavage by the international financial capital, despite their different development in different countries, despite cultural and ethnic differences, despite all the divisive nationalist and cosmopolitan influence of the class enemy - nobody is able to hinder the workers of all countries to fraternize in the first run and organize themselves economically and politically in the second run. With mutual support in the Comintern (SH), the Sections fight - across all borders - together for the common goal of world socialist revolution, and millions of emigrant workers gaining the Comintern (SH) as their international „home“. The home of the internationalist proletariat is not to be found isolated in this or that country – the home of the internationalist proletariat is the entire world which is shared by the proletarians of all countries .


    The Comintern of Lenin and Stalin was founded in 1919 - thanks to the relentless and persistent initiative of Lenin and the CPSU (B), which had gone through three great revolutions, and were victorious in the October Revolution. Those were the best conditions for the rapid emergence and spread of the Comintern. The stronger the Soviet Union , the stronger also the Comintern. Initially, there was a hard fight. All the new Sections - without exception - were still encumbered with the legacy of the opportunist and social-chauvinist Second International. And this struggle was continued. It intensified in the same dimensions as the Comintern intensified its own Bolshevization. This fight was inevitable, and consolidated the Comintern. In the last phase, the Comintern had to fight against right opportunism. In the result, there was the usurpation of the rule of the modern revisionists in the 50ies.
    The Comintern of Lenin and Stalin had guided many revolutions all over the world.


    In contrast, our Comintern (SH) is rather inexperienced and has still not passed any serious exam. We have no leading and strong socialist country, no powerful center which supports us. We are completely on our own. We are - despite strengthened by our new Sections - still in our infancy. Our world-revolutionary ideas are still not proved in practice. But we are convinced to reach our goals - in spite of all difficulties, in spite of all kinds of revisionism around the world !

    Comrades !

    Our new Sections – who call themselves “Section of the Comintern (SH)” [identically and without any further add-on names !] have declared ceremoniously, that they will be inspired and guided in the spirit of the PLA and Comrade Enver Hoxha. For each Section of the Comintern (SH), the study and application of the “History of the PLA” is just as obligatory as the “History of the CPSU (B) [Short Course]”. These books are integral part of the basic-study of Marxism-Leninism.


    Expression of the proletarian principles of the PLA is the principle of basing oneself on ones own forces. This concerns also to the Sections of the Comintern (SH). It has to be absolutely considered and implemented - in fact, permanently and consistently !


    It is the duty of each Section, to apply correctly the general-line and platform of the Comintern (SH) under the particular conditions of each country, and to participate at its further development and improvement.


    The implementation of the correct political line of the Sections is full on line with the implementation of the organizational structure of the Bolshevik Party which is to be developed, step by step.

    The Marxist-Leninist principles and norms of the Comintern (SH), the world revolutionary application of democratic centralism, they all apply equally to all Sections. By strict adherence and application of organizational standards and principles, the Sections protect themselves and the Comintern (SH) as a whole - against all tendencies of bureaucratism and liberalism. This way, the organizational transformation of the Comintern (SH) in a revisionist world party will be avoided.


    The Sections practice democratic centralism and collective leadership with iron proletarian discipline. Last not least, the whole discipline of the world party is essentially assured by its Sections. Our model for all the standards and rules are: the PLA , the CPSU (B), and the norms of the Comintern which we apply elastically, taking account of the different building phases of our world party.


    Bolshevik criticism and self-criticism is the principle of the development of every Bolshevik Party. This applies both to the Comintern (SH) and its Sections.


    Only the best and most reliable revolutionary forces are included in the Sections. We aim at a proletarian world party with proletarian Sections, and this concerns our social structure in particular !


    Comrades !


    We care commonly and permanently for the purity of the Comintern (SH) and the Sections. We fight against the "leftist"-, the rightist- and centrist opportunism, because the danger of liquidation or degeneration will always accompany the life of the Comintern (SH) and its Sections. It is the duty of the Comintern (SH) and all its Sections, to counter this danger with the greatest determination and resoluteness, where ever it may occur. We must pay attention to the various subversive activities of the class enemies. All these attempts of fractionism, splits, opportunism and sectarianism must be revealed and smashed in a principled fight. The five classics of Marxism-Leninism teach us to fight the subversive enemies successfully.


    The founding of the Sections does not run smoothly and swimmingly.

    With the foundation of your Section begins the CLASS STRUGGLE!

    There are not only the new sympathizers, HOWEVER ALSO NEW OPPONENTS! This is a challenge that we have to cope with - by mutual solidary support. With each new Section the Comintern (SH) becomes stronger and all the stronger the pressure of the world bourgeoisie will be, in general, and that of the enemies in your countries, in particular. Beginning with the foundation of your Sections, the revisionists and opportunists will unavoidably intensify their attacks against us, both on the global and national scale. We will meet this challenge successfully by applying strictly to the teachings of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism.



    The Comintern (SH) emerged in the struggle against the right and "left" founding-opportunism.

    The founding-opportunism is the ideology of the bourgeoisie, to call into question the establishment of the revolutionary organization of the working class - especially concerning the most convenient time and correct application of given conditions. The bourgeois-revisionist ideologues spread doubts and try to "prove" that the foundation of a revolutionary organization of the proletariat is not "justified". In truth the bourgeoisie is afraid of the organized proletariat. The bourgeoisie can beat the revolutionary working class in a single country more easily. However, this is much more difficult if the workers are united in their world party. That is the reason why the bourgeoisie must creep into the the fortress - to destroy or degenerate it from the inside. This happens if the bourgeoisie proved to be unable to thwart the founding of our Sections. This is now an accomplished fact. The founding of your Sections is a slap in the face of the international and national counter-revolution - inmidst of the deepest crisis of the rule of the world bourgeoisie. The enemy will fight back and we will certainly give the right answer. The history has repeatedly proved that Marxisms has always strengthened itself, through struggle against its enemies.

    The long chains of reasoning are well-known, with which the bourgeois-revisionist ideologues actively prevented the world proletariat from the re-foundation of the Comintern. For example, the bourgeois-revisionist world considers the Comintern as a "finalized" historical phenomenon. Allegedly, the Comintern has not the slightest right of existence neither at present nor in future.

    Likewise, our opponents laugh at us and denigrate the re-founding of the Comintern and its Sections as "sect", as expression of alleged "sectarianism" and "dogmatism". This way, they try to keep us away from the labour movement.

    However, we would be indeed sectarians and dogmatists, if we would equate and simply copy the conditions, which were valid in times of the old Comintern and its Sections. As for us Stalinist-Hoxhaists, we profoundly analysed the current global conditions and worked out a fitting new global strategy and tactics, a new general-line and platform which differs from that of the old Comintern concerning the different historical situation of class-struggle. For example, today, there are some sectarian and dogmatic elements who argue in favour of a "Marxist-Leninist Comintern". But they reject strictly the Stalinist-Hoxhaist Comintern. In our platform (2009) states:

    The Comintern draws the demarcation line against such opponents whose goal it is, to detach - or even exclude - Stalinism-Hoxhaism from Marxism-Leninism.

    Anyone who tries to "defend" the Marxism-Leninism against Stalinism-Hoxhaism, makes itself an enemy of the five Classics of Marxism-Leninism, is an opponent of the Comintern (SH) and its Sections.

    Comrades !


    Finally, a quote from our general-line:


    "The Comintern (ML) was founded from necessity - soft-footed, modest, and in a weak and extremely inconvenient historical moment. However, we acted in concern about our Marxist-Leninist movement, in concern for our old beloved Comintern. Unfortunately, there was no classical matured revolutionary upsurge of the movement, but rather an atypical moment - inmidst the chronic crisis of the Marxist-Leninist World Movement. The Marxist-Leninist world movement was still too young to die. We have nothing to lose except the deep valley of our crisis - we have a world to win by founding the new Comintern.

    The new Comintern deserves this chance. Let the history judge. We have done what we thought to be done - with our honest heart - and for that we are willing to take over responsibility for our difficult decision. We sincerely hope that the general-line provides a modest proof for our sincerity and seriousness. We shall trust in the goodwill and the support of some comrades in the world. They shall help us that the Comintern (ML) soon overcomes the period in which it is not much more than a force which tries to keep itself alive."


    This goodwill and support, Comrades, comes now from your countries - at a time when the world revolution emerges from the deepest world capitalist crisis - at a time when the Sections are really urgently needed.

    We hereby solemnly declare that your trust in the Comintern (SH) will never be disappointed. With your help, we will follow the way - predetermined by our 5 classics of Marxism-Leninism.


    Good luck to all the comrades of the new Sections of the Comintern (SH) !

    Let' s go ahead, towards great world-proletarian struggles and victories !
    Long live the Communist International of Lenin and Stalin !
    Long live the Communist International (SH) !
    Long live the sections of the Comintern (SH) !
    Long live the world socialist revolution !
    Long live the dictatorship of the world proletariat !
    Long live world communism !
    Long live Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha !

    With world communist greetings

    Comintern (SH)
