Peking, August 11 (Hsinhua) – The Ad Hoc Committee for a Marxist-Leninist party of the United States, in a letter congratulating China’s successful explosion of its first hydrogen bomb, saluted the thought of Mao Tse-tung as “Marxism in the era of dying imperialism and of revolution of the oppressed peoples of the earth.”
The letter said that Mao Tse-tung’s thought is “the leading force in the world which combats imperialism and modern day revisionism. Only under such guidance could the great people of China achieve this scientific advancement with such outstanding success.”
The letter also praised the Communist Party of China for its stalwart and steadfast defense of the Arab nations in the struggle against Israel, tool of U.S. imperialism. “The complicity of the Soviet and U.S. governments in their underhanded plots was never more clear to the world. Once again China stands in the forefront of the oppressed peoples’ struggles,” the letter said.
The letter pointed out in conclusion that in the heartland of world imperialism – the United States, the oppressed workers “join in the struggles of the oppressed peoples of the world and that the revolutionary winds of the world’s oppressed will bring to death the reactionary evil designs of world imperialism.”
