Intent to Constitute the Maoist Revolutionary Party

We, the undersigned, hereby declare the intent to constitute the ‘Maoist Revolutionary Party’ in North Amerika.

Learning from prior experience in other Party-building efforts, we recognize the need for a militarized, multinational, revolutionary Communist Party founded on the science of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, with an orientation towards the liberation of the masses of oppressed and exploited people; to fully integrate with the people and establish organs of political power concentrated in the hands of the people in revolutionary base areas; to win and defend such power through the combative mobilization of the people; to destroy imperialism and build socialism through Protracted People’s War; and to declare this Party with a sense of urgency and discipline to accomplish these goals.

Further, we are constituting under the ideological leadership of the New Afrikan Black Panther Party.

There are a number of oppressed communities within the borders of the United States, but the New Afrikan communities experience the sharpest contradictions. From the period of enslavement to the modern-day era of mass incarceration, the geographically dispersed, highly concentrated and deeply segregated black communities experience the greatest class contradictions with imperialism and have historically formed the primary source of labor for the wealth of this empire. Slavery was motivated by a shortage of necessary labor to work the land and today the “New Slavery” of the prison-industrial complex is motivated by a surplus of labor that cannot be profitably exploited by the capitalists. The capitalist-imperialists have determined that the black communities are useless and now implement genocidal policies towards them, much like those historically aimed at Native Americans. These black communities have always existed in constant antagonism with the settler-colonial project, and therefore, have always been the first to struggle.

The principally exploited and oppressed classes of black communities are the proletariat, semi-proletariat, lumpen-proletariat, and lower petite-bourgeoisie. Among them, the proletariat constitutes the leading revolutionary force within the United States.

These four basic classes share a principal contradiction with imperialism, and therefore have a concrete material basis for revolutionary struggle. The New Afrikan Black Panther Party represents the most advanced expression of black proletarian class consciousness and revolutionary political practice, and has emerged as leadership of a United Front of all the exploited classes, both inside the prison system and across oppressed communities.

Therefore, it is imperative that our Party follows the political leadership of the New Afrikan Black Panther Party. We pledge to follow their directives, study their revolutionary line, give them material support when they request it and learn from their example. We will work closely with them to develop more advanced unity in the future.

We support their efforts to transform the prison system into trenches of revolutionary struggle and schools of revolutionary thought; including their efforts to transform Newark, New Jersey into a revolutionary base area.

Additionally, every white member of the Maoist Revolutionary Party will join the Marilyn Buck Brigade and carry out the directives and tasks set forth by the New Afrikan Black Panther Party in order to expand the revolution into white proletarian communities.

White proletarians in the United States are dispersed and led politically by the white petite-bourgeoisie and labor aristocracy. It is, therefore, the duty of revolutionary white proletarians to break this unity with imperialism in their own communities and build support for the liberation struggles of all oppressed communities against imperialism.

Finally, we support wholeheartedly and learn from the shining example of the Communist Party of the Philippines and the Communist Party of India (Maoist)! Our international support goes to them and to the Maoist Parties being constituted or reconstituted across the world, including in Peru, Nepal, Turkey and many others. We wish to help build a new Maoist International to struggle, unite with and assist revolutionary struggles everywhere.

Our hearts are swelled with optimism at this declaration. Revolution is urgently needed and only through sacrifice, discipline, unity and struggle can we hope to free the people and establish a new society founded on the principle of “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need.”

We shall advance steadfastly along the road to socialism! The new society shall arise from the ashes of the old, and no longer will the people suffer needlessly at the hands of their exploiters!

All Power to the People!
Long Live the New Afrikan Black Panther Party!
Socialism or Annihilation!
