Organize and Make the Revolution!
The Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador has successfully completed the work of its IX Congress. The final sessions were preceded by a period of debate within their ranks and among the youth of the Political Report presented for this purpose by the Central Committee, in a document entitled Organize and Make the Revolution. The successful holding of this Congress constitutes an important ideological, political and organizational victory for the working class and the Marxist-Leninist communists of Ecuador.
The process of preparation and development of the Congress has been an important stage of debate in which all the organs of the Party and Youth participated, as well as friends of our organization, which allowed us to penetrate into the analysis of how the Party fulfills its historical responsibility to organize the social revolution of the proletariat in our country, the successes that we achieved in its execution and the limitations that we still have. The debate has also allowed us to deepen the analysis and understanding of the international and national situation and define a set of guidelines to advance the process of organizing the Ecuadorian revolution.
The course of these discussions has allowed us to confirm the ideological, political and organizational unity of the Party, its affirmation of the principles of Marxism-Leninism and the high spirit of militancy to undertake the revolutionary tasks, which constitute the basis for the successful development of this IX Congress.
In its final sessions, Congress approved the Report presented by the Central Committee, which becomes the line of political action for the next five years; in addition, it elected the new Central Committee, which, as is customary in our organization, combines experienced cadres – men and women – and young people who guarantee the continuity of a revolutionary leadership.
Our Congress had the honor of having the presence of delegations from various fraternal parties, members of the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations, ICMLPO: Revolutionary Communist Party of Bolivia, Revolutionary Communist Party of Brazil, Communist Party of Labor of the Dominican Republic, Communist Party of the Workers of France, Communist Party of Mexico (Marxist-Leninist), Peruvian Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist), Communist Party of Spain (Marxist-Leninist ), Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Uruguay. Also present were the Revolutionary Communist Party of Chile and the internationalist George Gruenthal. The Party of Labor of Turkey, the ‘Party of the Workers of Tunisia, the Communist Workers’ Party of Denmark, the Communist Platform – for the Communist Party of the Proletariat of Italy and the Party of Labor of Iran (Toufan) sent messages of greeting. The presence and communications of these parties constitutes an important contribution of the International Communist Movement, which we value highly and commit us further to our internationalist work.
We share with the workers, youth, women, and peoples of Ecuador and the world this ideological, political, and organizational victory of the Ecuadorian Marxist-Leninists and Marxist-Leninists grouped together in the ICMLPO.
In the midst of a capitalist world that goes from failure to failure, we proletarian revolutionaries are advancing and fulfilling our mission of organizing and carrying out the social revolution of the proletariat.
Long live the IX Congress of the PCMLE!
Long live the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations!
For the revolution and socialism!
Marxist Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador
