                          Part 2 of 3

Objective 2. The next objective of the WMC aims at defending  the
People's War, the PCP and "its leadership", but these, in this second
objective, no longer have a guiding thought.   The WMC's proposal
presents  the People's War and the PCP as fragmented and separated - on
paper- from Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought.  As we have seen
in the first objective, Gonzalo Thought is linked only to the person of
"chairman Gonzalo" and exclusively defended as "HIS thought."  Thus, LAB
and AO "defend" the PCP, but suppress and obliterate the proletarian
class ideology the PCP follows and applies: Marxism-Leninism- Maoism,
Gonzalo Thought, principally Gonzalo Thought in Peru, and principally
Maoism worldwide.

Through their deceptive manipulations of separation and fragmentation
(metaphysics), they fabricate a scenario where "chairman Gonzalo" has
"HIS thought" and the PCP has "no thought," it has only "its
leadership." But, here again LAB and AO do not recognize nor mention the
PCP's Central Committee.  Let us ask: Where is the "leadership" of the
PERU.  However, LAB and AO do not even mention the Central Committee's
leadership. They launch an ambiguous and deceiving call to "defend" the
Party and "its leadership", but suppress the leading role of the
PCP-Central Committee and its Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, Gonzalo Thought
line.  This ambiguity of "its leadership" leaves room to later advertise
the WMC mentors  LAB and AO, the revisionist traitors Javier Esparza,
Victor, and even Robert Avakian, as "the leadership" or "part of the
international leadership" of the "revolution abroad."  In synthesis, LAB
and AO call to "defend" the PCP, neglect, suppress, and negate the PCP's
Central Committee and its leading role (!) and prepare the basis for a
future call from Fujimori's "leadership" to impose class treason, to
carry out another reactionary "peace accord" farce as part of
imperialism's low intensity warfare.

Objective 3. It calls to defend the prisoners of war and political
prisoners.  This is a fair objective, but needs further clarification,
after all, prisoners of war are political prisoners, because captured
combatants are imprisoned for struggling to conquer political Power
nationwide.  But the WMC's third objective separates prisoners of war
>from political prisoners, and no explanation is given in regard to the
difference.  Actually, this obscure manipulation of prisoners of war
covers up recent developments in Peru's prisons.  It is essential to
distinguish that members of the Right Opportunist clique operating from
the Yanamayo Prison (Puno, Southern Peru) now operate as Fujimori's
agents in creating slanders and falsifications against the PCP, its
Central Committee and the People's War.  The handful of capitulating
opportunists in Yanamayo have abandoned the revolutionary struggle and
have enlisted themselves in the ranks of the counter-revolution.  Now,
are LAB and AO proposing to defend the black clique in Yanamayo as
"political prisoners"? It is clear that international supporters of the
People's War should never defend those "historic" revisionists (Osman
Morote, Cox, Meche, etc.) who struggle for class treason and
capitulation, and oppose the construction of the Conquest of Power
nationwide.  The "historic" clique of renegades operating from Yanamavo
cannot be defended. On the contrary, they must be crushed, as the
PCP-Central Committee has clearly indicated in February 1994. In Europe,
a follower of the black clique, Javier Esparza "the individual in
Sweden," is a close partner of the Yankee revisionist Robert Avakian
(RCP-USA) who also imposes a right opportunist line in CORIM.  The
disagreements and partial split between the Esparza+Avakian group and
the LAB+AO gang (because they compete for "recognition" as world
"leaders") could end in the WMC, and could lead to a new call for a new
"peace accord" in order to "defend the life of prisoners." Thus,
objective 3 is another ambiguity that leaves room for opportunist
manipulations.  HOW to defend prisoners of war? this is another key
point completely ignored in objective 3.

Objetive 4. In objective 4, the two Peruvian "world leaders" oppose the
PCP's application of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought.  It is
well known that since the initiation of the People's War, THE COMMUNIST
PARTY OF PERU (PCP), through armed propaganda, agitation, armed strikes,
political-military operations, People's Committees, cultural work,
collective economic transformation, ideological struggle, etc.,
Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, principally Gonzalo Thought.
But through their call to "defend" the PCP, LAB and AO suppress and deny
the PCP's CREATIVE APPLICATION of Marxism-Leninism- Maoism, Gonzalo
Thought to the concrete conditions of class struggle in Peru.  The PCP
applies Maoism to lead in practice the People's War, and at the same
time this luminous revolutionary practice generates and further develops
Gonzalo Thought, which in turn is applied back to practice to achieve
higher and greater national and international victories, serving the
people's struggle against the three mountains of oppression and
exploitation: semi-feudalism, bureaucratic capitalism, and imperialism.
It is precisely through the practical creative application of Maoism
that the PCP leads the revolutionary Peruvian masses in the creation of
suppress and negate the APPLICATION of Maoism, they remain only in
"DEFENSE" of Maoism.  Now it becomes clear that this is a cover to
disguise their bourgeois anti-Party, anti-Central Committee,
anti-proletarian and anti-Maoist position.

Let us further clarify the importance of the worldwide application of
Marxism-Leninism- Maoism, principally Maoism.  The "INSTRUCTIONS" from
the PCP, Central Committee, with President Gonzalo's leadership,
thoroughly clarify: "Finally, when dealing with Ayacucho, a very
important lesson for the whole Party was drawn in relation to the
application of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism ... First the problem of the
application of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism: application is principal. To
take up Marxism's truths is a first leap, but the principal leap is the
application of such truths to transformation, to the practical
transformation of reality; this is principal.  The problem, thus, is not
simply to know Marxism, the problem is to apply it; the problem is not
to know Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the problem is to apply
Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, this is the point." (INSTRUCTIONS, Central
Committee, Communist Party of Peru, Instruction No. 13, June 1994).
Thus, one important lesson drawn from the practical experience of
People's War in Peru is that the necessary PRINCIPAL LEAP in proletarian
revolutionary practice is to APPLY Marxism to the practical
transformation of reality, to prepare, support and carry out more
People's War, to achieve the Conquest of Power nationwide with more
People's War, and to continue with the socialist revolution and cultural
revolutions through more People's War, so the working masses themselves
further carry out greater, bolder and more creative applications of
Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought in all aspects of life, to
reach, with their own efforts and after many battles, the true realm of
liberty: COMMUNISM!
