You could say that the task of the instruments of the revolution is to
organise, systhematise, and give leadership - strategic and practical - to
the popular revolt.  The concept of People's War looks at the popular revolt
as an ongoing process, and a protracted one at that.

The question of the general uprisring is the culmination of all this
process, of laying the ground work for the final offensive - which would, in
the specific case of Peru, of course include a military offensive from the
countryside into the cities, as well as insurrection inside the cities
themselves.

The seizure of power is the People's Task and no one can do it in its
instead without in turn becoming a target for the people's revolution -
let's say a "provisional" type of bourgeois government which at some stage
of its concrete practice was to resist the complete seizure of power by the
people, and the establishment of a New Democracy regime.
