The American Party of Labor extends its warmest and most enthusiastic fraternal greetings to the comrades of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Bolivia on the occasion of their First National Congress.
The PCR issued this statement (translated by Red Phoenix staff):
Victorious First National Congress of the PCR
The Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Communist Party (PCR) communicates to the communists, the working classes, the youth and the peoples of Bolivia that the First National Congress of the PCR has successfully completed its tasks. With the presence of delegates from all regions of the country, youth, women, workers and professionals, the city and the countryside, the important task of discussing and approving the fundamental documents of our Party has been fulfilled: the Program, the Declaration of Principles and the Organic Statute. The democratic election of the Central Committee of the Party, the Political Bureau and the Secretariat has also been carried out, with the task of directing the partisan work until the Second National Congress. The need for a Marxist-Leninist youth organization led to the approval of the formation of the Revolutionary Communist Youth (JCR) as the youth arm of the Party.
The fraternal debate dealt with issues of the historical development of leftist forces in our country, from popular struggles from anti-colonial movements hundreds of years ago to anti-neoliberal mobilizations in the early 2000s, which left important lessons for the towns of Bolivia. The urgent need to continue with party construction was highlighted, which will provide the working majority of our country with the Party that will lead the Socialist Revolution, under the guidance of Marxism-Leninism, demarcating the positions of revisionism and modern reformism (Socialism of the Century XXI). The need to forge the Popular Patriotic Front to unite the popular sectors under the flags of struggle for democratic, popular, anti-imperialist, anti-fascist and anti-patriarchal demands was resolved.
The participation of international delegates from our sister parties in the Peruvian Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist), the Marxist Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador and the Communist Party of Mexico (Marxist-Leninist); together with the greetings we receive from the Communist Party of Spain (Marxist-Leninist), the Communist Party of the Workers of France, and the Communist Platform – of the Communist Party of the Proletariat of Italy, strengthen our ties of camaraderie and proletarian internationalism within the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (CIPOML).
Today the international communist movement has its detachment organized in Bolivia to raise the revolutionary banner. This First National Congress of the PCR will go down in history along with the formation of the first Bolivian Communist Party (1926-1931), the break of the PIR which gave rise to the Communist Party of Bolivia (1950), the First Extraordinary Congress of the PCB (1964) and the Second Extraordinary Congress of the Communist Party of Bolivia (Marxist-Leninist) (1983).
Long live the First National Congress of the PCR!!
Long live the ICMLPO!!
Long live Marxism-Leninism!
Peoples of Bolivia … to combat, against the MAS-ista farce, for popular democracy and the Socialist Revolution!!
