Marxist-Leninists Unite!

Call for a Congress

Comrades and Friends,

The Continuations Committee which was formed at the Conference of North American Marxist-Leninists has the task of organizing a Congress in which all serious Marxist-Leninists and revolutionaries will come together to form a proletarian Party of a New type in the U.S. These draft positions from the Conference are being presented to stimulate discussion for a Party program.

The necessity of building such a Party is becoming clearer every day. The Watergate scandal shows once again the total corruption of both major bourgeois parties in the U.S. The Soviet Union-U.S. detente is clearly aimed at strangling the revolutionary struggles around the world. It also raises the possibilities of a World War. The increasing attacks against the living standards in the U.S. and the rising strike wave clearly shows the need for a Marxist-Leninist Communist Party in the U.S. today. The recent Coup d’Etat in Chile proved once again the correctness of the Marxist-Leninist thesis that, “Without a revolutionary party, there can be no revolution.”

Comrades, no honest Marxist-Leninist can deny the crying need for a Communist Party to lead the workers’ struggle in the U.S. We must now buckle down to the difficult task of developing a Party programme. We must go all out in our efforts to link Marxism-Leninism with the working class struggle in its varied forms. We must step up the battle against Revisionism and Opportunism throughout the country. And, we must at all costs exert our energy towards making the upcoming Party Congress a success, a basis from which the proletariat of this country can wage a ferocious attack against Imperialism and reaction in this country.
