>The "two world leaders" call only to "defend" Maoism, but in practice
>they oppose the APPLICATION of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism.  They promote
>themselves as experts of Marxist knowledge, and throw quotations to
>right and left (Olaechea Cahuas portrays himself as "the greatest
>thinker since Stalin," and Arce Borja promotes himself as "the successor
>of Gonzalo.") But it is all a cover to reject the APPLICATION of
>Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, to negate the lessons from the
>People's War in Peru, and to oppose the position of the PCP, Central
>Committee, in leading the democratic revolution and the Conquest of
>Power nationwide.
>The correct line is to call the working masses to APPLY MAOISM, not only
>to "defend" it.  The main point is to APPLY Marxism- Leninism-Maoism,
>Gonzalo Thought, this is the point, as clearly expressed by THE CENTRAL
>Objective 5. This objective is a smoke screen, a deception, because
>through their WMC and other previous deceptive manipulations, LAB and AO
>promote opportunism and revisionism; they oppose the proletarian line in
>the international solidarity movement that supports the People's War.
>They attempt to impose their own bourgeois, opportunist anti-Party,
>anti-Central Committee, anti-Maoist revisionist line in order to promote
>themselves as "world leaders" serving their own selfish interests.
>Simultaneously, they prepare the ground for future imperialist attacks
>against President Gonzalo, the PCP, the People's War and the World
>Proletarian Revolution.
>Objective 6 is a clear attempt to oppose, mislead and sabotage the PCP's
>international activities abroad, and to structure a revisionist right
>opportunist line in the international solidarity movement that supports
>the People's War in Peru.  LAB and AO, in collaboration with a clique of
>senderologists (Simon  Strong, Degregori, etc.), and undercover
>imperialist agents (MIM, K.K. "Campbell" of Eyenet-Toronto, etc.)
>attempt to monopolize, control and sabotage ALL activities abroad in
>support of the People's War.  The so called "organizing commission" is
>an attempt to deceptively place these two opportunists as "leading
>members of a world mobilization." Now, whoever questions or disagrees
>with this ridiculous fantasy of "Arce and Olaechea world leaders" is
>automatically slandered as a "police agent, "yankee secret weapon,"
>"impostor", etc. They will come up with "resolutions" and "commniques"
>without consulting no one.
>For instance, MIM (the phantom "Maoist International Movement") creates
>an illusion in which any disagreement with the WMC amounts to a "call to
>overthrow Luis Arce Borja," and, therefore, any person who disagrees is
>automatically part of a "police plot" (see MIM's publication on
>Internet, week of June 17, 1996.)  These slanders and coercions amount
>to a clear sabotage against honest supporters of the PCP and the
>People's War.  Actually, the international revisionist clique of LAB,
>AO, MIM, and even the RCP-USA, center their campaigns of slanders mainly
>against the MPP-USA and its publication The New Flag, precisely because
>the MPP-USA follows the line of the Central Committee of the Communist
>Party of Peru (PCP.)
>Their campaign of slander to defend their selfish interests is nothing
>new.  For a number of years now, whoever disagrees with Luis Arce Borja
>or Adolfo Olaechea is immediately slandered as "impostor," "police
>agent," blah blah blah, in Arce's "El Diario Internacional" (EDI).  A
>minor disagreement or simple criticism of LAB's opportunist practices is
>enough proof for them to carry out campaigns of slander and sabotage
>against honest supporters of the People's War.  Thus, objectively, these
>two "world leaders" carry out the same dirty work of Fujimori's
>intelligence services, the CIA, and FBI's COINTELPRO.
>It is clear that LAB and AO conduct their opportunist work under the
>cover of "defending the Peruvian revolution abroad."  This cover did
>fool for a while some supporters of the People's War, mainly because
>EDI, despite all its defects, and in its own manner, opposed Fujimori's
>call for "peace accord"; but now it is obvious that LAB employs that
>episode and EDI mainly to promote himself as "the reporter of the
>century, successor of Gonzalo" with his partner, AO, "the greatest
>thinker since Marx," while the PCP Central Committee and its supporters
>are neglected, suppressed, slandered and sabotaged.  This is the
>situation today, this is what exists at present: two shadows of Kamenev
>and Zinoviev in a "World Mobilization Commission" of opportunism,
>sabotage, class treason and future capitulation.
>In essence, a herd of international revisionists and their
>collaborators, led by two Peruvian opportunists, have launched the call
>for a WMC, but it is a failure, because the international support for
>the People's War in Peru is closely linked to the struggle against
>revisionism and imperialism at the international level.  Who follows the
>two opportunist "leaders"?
>Comrades from the Committee for a Revolutionary Communist Party in
>Australia (CRCPA) and the Committee in Support of the Peruvian
>Revolution (CSRP) in Australia responded in June 1996: "We have seen
>statements broadcast on the Internet, by some supporters of the World
>Mobilization Commission, with which we cannot agree.  We maintain our
>support for The New Flag, its editors and the MPP-USA under whose
>auspices The New Flag is published.  We regard The New Flag/MPP-USA as
>leading comrades in the international movement in solidarity with the
>PCP-led People's War in Peru precisely because they are following the
>line of the Central Committee of the PCP."
>Paul Wright, editor of Prison Legal News, an honest supporter of the
>People's War in the USA, responded: "...Now LAB and Adolfo... want to
>form a new group with themselves conveniently as the leadership and
>anyone who disagrees with this is a police agent! People are not blank
>slates, in the cases of LAB and Adolfo they come with many pages.  It
>seems that over the years they have an inability to work with others in
>a consistent principled manner, due, in my opinion, to problems of their
>own ego.  I have seen Adolfo rather immodestly refer to himself as the
>greatest thinker since Marx! Since he has lived in England for the past
>30 years, I am not sure what his relations to the PCP are." (Open letter
>to MIM, July 6. 1996.)
>Similar responses are widespread.  But let us understand other relevant
>reasons for rejecting the WMC and its authors.
>In his "Diario Internacional", LAB slandered the Italian organization
>Rossoperaio as "the Inquisitors" who cover up
>"impostors" from MPP-Europe.  LAB published: "For instance the original
>EDI No.26, it had 24 pages.  Mysteriously, Rossoperaio reduced this
>edition to only 10 pages.  This is a unique case in the modern history
>of social and political struggle.  This is the same as somebody who
>tries to oppose Catholic religion by suppressing pages from the Bible."
>(EDI No.28, February 1996, p.7.)
>Luis Arce Borja simply exaggerates.  Censorship, much less censorship of
>his EDI, is not "a unique case in modern history"; actually,
>imperialists and their lackeys constantly apply censorship and
>distortion of facts through the imperialist world media.  But LAB not
>only fabricates cheap bourgeois sensationalism, he goes farther and
>portrays his scribbles in EDI as today's "Bible".  That much is clear,
>his self-serving manipulations for self-glorification.  If those in
>Rossoperaio distribute only the few news reports from Peru published in
>EDI, and exclude LAB's scribbles, it must be for their own reasons, but
>instead of uncovering those reasons, LAB only mentions that the group
>has "ideological and political poverty," period, he does not present any
>evidence. There is no clarification, no substance, no facts, no
>analysis, no synthesis.  If EDI is today's Bible, then LAB can be no
>more than today's holy apostle, and Adolfo Olaechea his disciple who
>spreads his creed of class treason on the Internet and spits slanders
>against supporters of the People's War.
>In addition, LAB slanders as "impostors" members of MPP-Europe (Sol
>Rojo) because they criticize him, and because this group does not
>thoroughly criticize "opportunism in RIM."  Also according to LAB, the
>members of Atelier d'Etudes Franco Peruviannes in France are "impostors
>and provocateurs" (see EDI, July 1993); and more recently (with the
>collaboration of MIM and AO) the MPP-USA is slandered as "police plot"
>and "yankee secret weapon", etc.
