THERE IS SUCH A PARTY!
Its 50th Anniversary
- Statement of the Central Committee of CPC(M-L),
March 31, 2020 -
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the founding
of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), we send our
warmest revolutionary greetings to all Party members across the
country, to its supporters, friends and fellow-travelers. Special
greetings to all founding members who continue to contribute to the
valiant aims we set for ourselves five decades ago.
greet the Canadian working class and people with whom for 50 years and
more we have shared weal and woe, building the party of the working
class in the course of participating in every mass movement without
is also our honour on this occasion to express our warmest
revolutionary greetings to all our fraternal comrades all over the
world with whom we share the responsibilities which we have in common
for the victory of our common cause.
involvement of Party members, our class and people and support of
fraternal comrades all over the world have made it possible to achieve
the historic successes we are celebrating today.
On this occasion, our deepest respects go to the memory of our founder
and leader, our comrade and friend, Hardial Bains. Comrade Bains
spearheaded the founding of the Communist Party of Canada
(Marxist-Leninist) in Montreal 50 years ago. He united the advanced
forces to set its line of march, mobilize the broad masses and isolate
the backward elements blocking society’s path to progress. Comrade Bains
provided the Party with its defining quality. The issue, he said, is
not to wave the red flag but to show our colour through our deeds. This
is expressed in the Party motto: The Party’s Deed Is Its Word.
To all the comrades who have passed away, our deepest respects and profound appreciation for their contribution.
On this occasion of our 50th anniversary, with utmost pride we can repeat what we said on March 31, 1970: There Is Such a Party!
Ours is a force which refuses to conciliate with what is old,
anachronistic and a burden on society. On the basis of this refusal, it
realizes its striving to bring what is New into being. The working
people can do no less.
Today it is our honour to once again answer the
question we pose ourselves every year: What have we achieved? We are
once again proud to say with utmost confidence that as a result of our
work, human dignity and integrity is what we have achieved. It is the
dignity and integrity of those who with utmost pride in their Party and
in their class, set their own agenda and implement their own decisions!
Out of all the agenda we set for ourselves, the creation of such a human
force which takes up for solution the problems facing the society is
the decisive one. This is a force which does not place narrow private
aims as society’s agenda. It is a force made up of human beings who, in
spite of themselves, rise above all that is profaned. Taking up the most
advanced experience revealed by the social relations between humans and
humans and humans and nature, it is a force whose social project puts
human beings and their well-being at the centre of history-making.
On the occasion of our 50th anniversary, we confidently
declare to our class, our women and youth: For more than five decades
we have been in the forefront of leading those battles which are
absolutely necessary so that the society can make progress. We put the
aim of the society as the first aim of our lives and this is what gives
rise to the quality required of a communist worthy of the name. So long
as there are people such as you and there is a struggle against
oppression, communists such as us will be there.
On this occasion, we pledge to step up our work to realize the aims we
took up together 50 years ago and every year since then. We dedicate the
celebration of our 50th anniversary to our founder and leader Hardial
Bains, to all our comrades who have passed away and to all those who are
working to build CPC(M-L) today and who provide this work with
Salute the 50th Anniversary of the Founding of CPC(M-L)!
Long Live Our Party!
Workers and Oppressed Peoples of All Countries, Unite!
