On 1. August 1964 in the population at Easter, then the nearby town of Guayaquil took place the First Congress of PCMLE. It was a conference in absolute secrecy.
18 comrades representing the party organization in the provinces of Pichincha, Guayas, Loja, Azuay, Esmeraldas, Los Rios attended the deliberations.
Congress debated the country’s situation and tasks of the communists and the people paid attention to the need to place the order of the day the fight for the overthrow of military dictatorship, the unity of workers, peasants and youth said the responsibility of working in the field, with the poor peasantry in the perspective of organizing the revolutionary armed struggle, directed to facilitate the organization and the struggle of youth. The Congress took place by the Marxist-Leninist thesis under discussion at international level, condemned modern revisionism and raised the full force of proletarian internationalism and solidarity with the revolutionaries of Latin America and the world, and also decided to actively involve PCMLE International Communist Movement Marxist Leninist.
Revisionists and other opportunists are saying that the CIA had organized PCMLE. It is a fallacy that attempts to conceal the nature of traitors and agents of the bourgeoisie labeling the proletarian revolutionaries of imperialist intelligence tools. The facts are clear enough, are shown in book by former CIA agent Philip Agee’s complaint that his own work as an agent in Ecuador. The old Communist Party was penetrated by agents on several levels. Three of these agents were assigned to join the ranks of the proletarian revolutionaries and effectively between the tables that organized the party were Arellano, Cardenas and Vargas were even elected to the CC. His work was harmful, causing us great difficulties conducted an active work of intrigue and decay among peers, ideological and political fun in the ranks of the party, police informers were several comrades imprisoned by the dictatorship. This activity was discovered , denounce, fight, and these agents were expelled in 1966 and 1967, exposed by its activities at the police. Later when the book was published Agee other revolutionary party and check the quality of paid agents of the CIA.
These episodes do not support the assertion of opportunistic pernicious, they say that imperialism was aware of the revolutionary nature of the party and the need to infiltrate, decompose and / or divide, showing that the organization was attentive and was able to discover in time these traitors , remove them and clean up their ranks.
We started as a historical necessity, the old Communist Party had lost its revolutionary nature and was a party to reform and reconciliation, the working class and peoples of Ecuador requiring its revolutionary vanguard, the communist organization that organize and drive the liberation struggle.
We started as a response of the proletariat and other working class to the betrayal of the revisionists, the true communist organization, as the political party of the working class, as the party of social liberation.
We were born to promote the fight against imperialism and reaction, to organize the working masses, the Patriots and bring them to the struggle for national liberation.
We were born with the aim to organize and make revolution.
Rising up as defenders of the revolutionary principles of Marxism-Leninism, as disciples of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin and their successors.
We came to expose and combat the opportunism and revisionism.
We came in difficult conditions, small and weak, but full of optimism and confidence in the working class and peoples.
We had and have historical reason, we have the guidance of Marxism-Leninism with the decision to fight for the revolution and socialism.
We were born to fight and win, to gain power and build the new world.
