On behalf of the Coordination Committee of the Conference of Parties and Organizations Marxist-Leninist, and that of my party, thank you for this opportunity to participate in events in honor of the dear Comrade Enver Hoxha. Acknowledge feeling excited by this act, not in vain had the honor of Comrade Enver personally know with whom I met on several occasions.
Enver Hoxha, now, as the years pass, gigantic figure. Thus, usually with beings that have marked his time, which in turn demonstrates that humanity progresses, it becomes stagnant. Comes into play the role of individuals in history. Enver is one of them. One of these individuals, a communist, who faced the vicissitudes of the period he lived and fought against. He, like many other Communist leaders, makes sense, because the poems of Bertolt Brecht on the role of individuals every day, lifelong.
Leninist consequential, Enver fought against imperialism, against any kind of imperialism and its attempts to subdue socialist Albania. Today, as the general crisis of capitalism makes maniofiesto, once again, the correctness of the Marxist analysis, and particularly Lenin’s Imperialism: the Highest Stage of Capitalism, we must remember as Enver in his famous “Imperialism and the Revolution” warned as in their search for out of the crisis, which even then pointed out, the imperialist countries seeking alliances and agreements, to prevent the collapse of their system. Are currently struggling desperately, even more than yesterday in that regard. The result we are reaching the “wise men” economists of the world bourgeoisie, how could it be otherwise, is to privatize profits and socialize losses. That is, once again, that people, the pariahs of the earth, working class and sections of the petty and middle bourgeoisie, loaded with the slab of the crisis. For they seek new alliances and commitments, facing each other, come together and compete, and as noted Hoxha in “Imperialism and the Revolution.”
“Life constantly confirms the brilliant thesis of Lenin on imperialism. Capitalism has entered the stage of putrefaction. […] The struggle of peoples against imperialism and the bourgeois capitalist cliques grows in different ways, with varying intensity. Inevitably becomes the amount and quality.”
Given this international situation, which is preparing new and brutal attacks on villages, the Communists, the Marxist-Leninists must come together, eliminate our differences, through proper ideological treatment, to deal with this offensive of capital, especially, so that our people know that there is no way out other than the class struggle.
The International Conference of Political Parties and Organizations Marxist-Leninist (ICMLPO), formed 18 years ago, emerged in the struggle against revisionism and opportunism that led to the downfall of many parties to the disappearance of many of them. Revisionism, as Enver Hoxha said, and before that Lenin and Stalin, is a real cancer that eats away and settled to the proletarian vanguard detachments, if not detected and merciless fight. This is a life or death struggle, as experience shows, sad experience in many cases.
We think that, as Enver Hoxha said:
“The current international situation is murky, the crisis in the capitalist and revisionist countries is aggravated, the aggressive policy of the superpowers increasingly engenders new and great risks for freedom and independence of peoples and for peace in general. […].
Given these conditions, the defense of Marxism-Leninism, the principles of proletarian internationalism and revolutionary consistent attitude towards the big global problems today are […] to all genuine Marxist-Leninist, a key task. “(Imperialism and the Revolution).
In this struggle we must join together all Communists, all those who think that Marxism-Leninism is at the cutting edge of life-threatening emergency. Proletarian internationalism, which fought so long and so worthily the Albanian communists under the leadership of Enver Hoxha led by CC, is a flag that we must always keep up. Encounter obstacles, sometimes misunderstood, but we must continue to challenge erroneous positions, combat eclecticism, the hypocritical attitude that tries to unite the materialism and idealism, to combine mechanical and unprincipled, trends, heterogeneous ideological trends.
Slowly we left the dispersion caused by anti-major offensive unleashed by imperialism in the sixties, and, in some way favored by anti-Marxist positions, as was the Khrushchev, the Trotskyism, the theory of three worlds, Euro-communism et al.
But we can not be complacent. We are still far from achieving the great unity of the communists, unit, or what is on the principles of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and the great communist leaders who have preceded us, as Enver Hoxha, or it will drive. That’s a challenge, a great challenge before us. For our part, we do not lose heart and determined to move in that direction, which is nothing more than the real proletarian internationalism, in practice, not bullshit or mitinera slogan.
From this rostrum on which we honor the memory of Comrade Enver, we express our solidarity with the Albanian communists fighting under difficult conditions, against the current situation of the country, and the strengthening and implementation of the Party.
Those who knew Albania since 1965, we witness the great progress that year after year, they managed to address bajota PTA. We know because we have seen with our own eyes, with what earnestness, with what heroism, the Communists and the Albanian people, construíais socialism, while you are up against the maneuvers of the Titoists, the Khrushchevites, the Maoists and all attempts, external and internal, to destabilize the country and destroy its accomplishments.
Today as yesterday, we are with you. Old ties bind us, based on common principles based on that proletarian internationalism alive and consistent, that Enver defended throughout his life. We understand that your task is not easy, nothing less than to overthrow the reactionary regime, supported and sponsored by U.S. imperialism has destroyed socialism in Albania and the country retracted dark times. The words of Comrade Enver at the Seventh Congress of PTA, are present in our minds, that of the Communists:
“The world is at a stage where the cause of revolution and national liberation of peoples is not only an aspiration and vision, but also a problem that awaits solution.”
But we are confident that the Albanian communists, together with healthy people, wield the sword symbolic of Skanderbeg, and managed to wobble again the red flag of the proletariat, the revolution in the mountains and valleys of the land of eagles.
Honor and glory to Comrade Enver Hoxha!
Long live the friendship between our parties!
Long live the Communist Party of Albania!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
