Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist)

On Unity of Marxist-Leninists

Statement of the New Morning Collective on CPC(M-L)

CPC(M-L) has national organisation (form), it has pursued the question of the proletarian party and proletarian ideology to the highest level in Canada...this action objectively puts them in the lead in the struggle to achieve a Canadian Communist Party. It is in this sense we recognise their central.

New Morning has pursued the question of revolution in the Maritimes, in this sense we have objectively advanced revolution and established our authority.

We see the need for a North American central, we are prepared to fight to achieve this central, and we see the fight as having two aspects:
1. the destruction of anti-unity forces, and
2. the cultivation of pro-unity forces.

In this framework we see the necessity of:
1. smashing revisionism, social democracy, and other counterrevolutionary “left” trends, and
2. aiding and providing peoples groups and movements which relate to the authority of the revolutionary control.

The by-word of Marxist-Leninists is unity. Unity is unto itself a principle to be struggled for and achieved.

With Marxism-Leninism as our compass and the Communist Party as our helmsman, the grasping of unity makes all differences fall into their correct perspective.

In the interests of building unity, and in the interest of building the Communist Party in Canada, we propose:
1. That New Morning recognise the central of CPC(M-L) as the most advanced revolutionary movement in Canada.
2. That New Morning enter into a unity with CPC(M-L) Halifax and through the form of a unity conference(s) begin to build a political programme and the practice of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought in Halifax and through New Morning, the Maritimes as a whole.
