Message of solidarity to the 4th National Congress of the Frente Popular Revolucionario
1 – 3 May 2014
By Prof. JOSE MARIA SISON
Chairperson, International League of Peoples’ Struggle
We, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, convey our warmest greetings of solidarity to all the militants, sympathizers and cooperators of the Frente Popular Revolucionario, holding its 4th National Congress on 1-3 May, in Mexico City. We extend special felicitations to Comrade Florentino López Martínez, National President of the FPR and member of the International Coordinating Committee of the ILPS, on this important milestone for the FPR and the anti-imperialist movement in Mexico.
We congratulate the FPR for having won significant victories in arousing, organizing and mobilizing the people. You have a great deal to celebrate in your congress and in the upcoming 13th Founding Anniversary of your front in September this year. Your organization is relatively young, but it has already managed to expand to salient parts of the country, uniting the masses of workers and peasants and waving high the banner of proletarian revolution in Mexico.
We support your call for a powerful and broad Frente Popular Revolucionario, that has the capability to engulf all the streets and fields of Mexico with your Red flags! We are confident that through your congress you will be able to raise higher your understanding of the objective conditions in Mexico and the world, to make a self-critical analysis and appreciation of your 12-year experience in mass organizing and united front work and to further clarify your strategy and tactics, the line of advance and the urgent tasks that you must accomplish.
The proletariat and broad masses of the people of Mexico are suffering terribly from the worsening conditions of exploitation and oppression, which are engendered by the crisis of the world capitalist system and the domestic ruling system. You must wage vigorous and sustained mass struggles against US monopoly capitalism and the local exploiting classes in order to build revolutionary strength and advance towards national and social liberation.
The imperialists and the local exploiting classes persist in imposing the neoliberal economic policy in order to further extract superprofits. They think that they can always the pass the burden of crisis to the working people and that revolution can be forestalled by state terrorrism and aggressive war.
But the contradictions between imperialism and the oppressed peoples, among the imperialist powers themselves and between capital and labor have steadily grown and become acute since 2008. The objective conditions have become favorable for revolutionary struggle.
The oppressors and exploiters themselves are goading the people to fight back against political repression and mass unemployment and low incomes, rising costs of basic goods and services, the degradation of social services and all concrete conditions that aggravate poverty and misery. And under the revolutionary party proletariat, the people learn to fight not just for the improvement of their socio-economic conditions but for the end of the exploitative and oppressive and the estalishment of people’s democracy and socialism.
We wish you the utmost success in your deliberations and decision-making. We look forward to the enrichment of your Declaration of Principles, Program, and Statutes of the FPR. And we congratulate in advance the comrades who shall be elected to the new Central Committee. We convey to them the best wishes for a resolute, militant and effective leadership.
We are proud to have the FPR as a member-organization of the ILPS, building a strong pillar of unity and cooperation among anti-imperialist and democratic forces in Mexico and the Americas. We are hopeful that the 4th National Congress of the FPR will further strengthen the anti-imperialist and democratic struggles of the people of Mexico, and be a major step forward on the road of proletarian revolution.
Glory to the 4th National Congress of the Frente Popular Revolucionario!
Long live the Frente Popular Revolucionario!
Uphold the class leadership of the proletariat in the Mexican revolution!
Victory to the Mexican peoples’ struggle for social emancipation!
Long live international anti-imperialist solidarity!
