GLORY TO THE FALLEN HEROES, LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION!
THE BLOOD DOES NOT DROWN THE REVOLUTION, IT WATERS IT!

It is common knowledge that newspapers which fear to take the side of the workers and are more inclined to side with the bourgeoisie (e.g., New Dawn), raised at that time, in common with the whole bourgeois press, a hue and cry about the ‚disintegration‘ of our Party, about ‚the collapse of the uprising‘ and so on. Events, however, swiftly refuted the lies and slanders of some and the doubts, waverings and cowardice of others: The ‚storm‘ they tried to raise over the efforts of Kamenev and Zinoviev to thwart the Petrograd uprising proved to be a storm in a teacup, while the great enthusiasm of the people, the great heroism of millions of workers, soldiers, and peasants in Petrograd, in Moscow, at the front, in the trenches and in the villages, pushed the deserters out of the way as easily as a railway train pushes aside splinters of wood. “

FROM THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE TO PARTY MEMBERS AND THE WORKING CLASS
V. I. Lenin

All men must die, but death can vary in its significance. The ancient Chinese writer Szuma Chien said: ‚Though death befalls all men alike, it may be heavier than Mount Tai or lighter than a feather.‘ To die for the people is heavier than Mount Tai, but to work for the fascists and die for the exploiters and oppressors is lighter than a feather.“

SERVE THE PEOPLE
Chairman Mao Tse-tung

Today, on the 19th of June, we celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the Day of Heroism. Along with the whole Party, its Central Committee, all the Party members, all the fighters and the masses that fight with us, we celebrate it to honor the memory of the heroes that gave their lives on that day in 1986, opposing the genocide in the Shining Trenches of Combat of El Frontón, Lurigancho and Callao, planned and carried out by the fascist, genocidal and countryselling García regime in the service of U.S. imperialism. These heroes show us what it means to give one‘s life for the Party and the revolution, to never lower our red banner — to put one‘s trust only in the Party and in masses, and never in the hoaxes of the murdering exploiters. They show us the fundamental difference between the enemy and us. The enemies, i.e. the landlords, the big bourgeoisie, the imperialists and all their lackeys, have no heroism, because they are driven only by their own rotten interests, their bloody profits. They have no future, and thus they pursue nothing more than serving their own petty interests. The proletariat and the people on the other hand, have nothing to lose but their chains, and they have a world to win. They give their lives not for personal gain, or for the benefit of some group, but for the future of the people of our country and all working people in the world. As the great Lenin said, this is the heroism of a class that is rising, not declining, a class that does not dread the future, but believes in it and fights for it selflessly, a class that does not cling to maintenance and restoration of the past in order to safeguard its privileges, but hates the past and knows how to cast off its dead and stifling decay“.(V. I. Lenin, „Democracy and Narodism in China“.)

Today the same genocidal fascist García, as the head of his second government, commits new genocides in our country, desperately trying to crush the people‘s war to save the rotten old system of exploitation and oppression and to guarantee the hegemony and the profits of his Yankee master. Just like the heroes of the Day of Heroism, the struggling people of Bagua in the Amazon are giving their lives, not for personal gain, but for the liberation of our country from imperialism. These heroic struggles of our people serve and flow together with our victorious people‘s resistance war against U.S. imperialism, led by our Party, that stands firmly united and closes ranks around our leadership Chairman Gonzalo and its Central Committee. This is why their campaigns have failed, this is why they are bogged down in Vizcatán, and this is why they have not been able to inflict any damage on any of our base forces, our main forces, our detachments, nor on our directorship.

It is because of this heroism of our people, and the leadership of our Party, upholding the unfading red banner of marxism-leninism-maoism, Gonzalo thought, that the enemy‘s hoaxes and counterrevolutionary plans will always fail — the „peace accords“ hoax of the CIA and the Right-opportunist line in Peru as well as the „peace accords“ plan of imperialism worldwide. Because as long as there is oppression and exploitation, the people will give their lives to achieve freedom, and they will generate the directorship they need to do it.

LONG LIVE THE DAY OF HEROISM!

GLORY TO THE FALLEN HEROES, LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION!

PUT ALL OUR FORCES IN TENSION TO DEVELOP THE PEOPLE‘S NATIONAL RESISTANCE WAR AGAINST U.S. IMPERIALISM!
