The Founding Statement of the Iraqi Revolutionary Maoist Organization
The Iraqi Revolutionary Maoist Organization (IRMO) is a revolutionary internationalist Marxist-Leninist-Maoist organization aiming at organizing the theoretical and armed struggles in order to carry out the socialist revolution and to establish the dictatorship of proletariat, also to execute the tasks of building the humane socialist society and a civilized world. Our aim is to put an end to the exploitation and slavery of man by man, to break the chains and shackles of the makers of peace and bread, that is the working class. The sole path of salvation and liberation from this class-slavery of the bourgeoisie, local and international capitalism is the intellectual struggle to educate our working class and peasantry about this iniquity and open-slavery of mankind by imperialist capitalism, as well as educating them about the iniquity of the Anglo-American occupation and the Iraqi puppets who came along with them, whether they be sectarian bigots, nationalists, tribal leaders, Baathists, political-Islamists, or –more dangerously- opportunist revisionist left which acts as an agent to the bourgeoisie and to the Americans. This same left which worked previously with the Fascist Baathist regime of Saddam, is currently working with occupation.
Besides working on the spreading of class political consciousness, our movement has its military wing, hence the armed struggle by means of people's war of workers, peasants, unemployed and their allies from students, women, trade unions, workers councils and organizations and revolutionary intellectuals.
Our movement has been, and currently is, present on the land of Mesopotamia, it carried out proud and heroic struggle against the invaders and their puppets and mercenaries of police, army and their security apparatus which is a puppet of Mussad, America, Iran and criminal sectarian militias. We have sacrificed our most honoured and most glorified comrades whom had honourably and proudly fallen as martyrs of Iraqi patriotic spirit, of the Iraqi revolutionary communist movement and of our Iraqi working class and Iraqi peasantry and their principles and aspirations for justice and welfare, for national, economic, social and cultural independence, and for the liberation of Iraqi women from injustice and inequality in society. Our Revolutionary Maoist Organization has given some of its best cadres, immortal heroes among which comes our leading, revolutionary communist intellectual, our immortal martyred comrade ELWAN. Despite his high academic achievements, he sat an example of a proletarian human being, thus the evil forces have murdered him using its usual dreadful methods. His life ceased to pulsate, but the revolution never ceased beating with his immortal history which he left as a revolutionary heritage to the comrades following his path. Another martyr of our comrades, proletarian comrade ABO ESHTAR, a cadre who adhered to the spark of proletarian armed revolution and a member of the founding board of IRMO and a member of its political cadre. Our immortal heroic martyred comrade JANGOZ (IBRAHIM ALI), a vanguard cadre, a proletarian intellectual who stood courageously against the hated sectarianism and Nazi nationalist and ethnic conflicts. As an opponent to the imperialist invasion of Iraq and other areas in the world, he upheld the torch of class struggle to the workers until he was expelled from his job as a university lecturer, consequently he was forced to work with manual workers. Our comrade was a prominent member in Maoist RED STARS FRONT, a comrade whose loss could never be compensated for, particularly under these exceptional circumstances. Our organization has lost many of its vanguard revolutionary cadres who were prominent on the level of leadership as well as the level of intellectual activity, it has also lost many of its guerrillas, in addition to those mentioned is comrade FAHAD, a member of the board for additional tasks. The rotten, criminal, fascist, racist gangs of Jaafari and Maliki, supported by the military of imperialist Anglo-American forces, experts and gangs of Mussad, have assassinated our leading comrade.
Our revolutionary heroic comrades of Iraqi revolutionary Maoist RED STARS FRONT (RSF) have carried out several military operations against the occupations forces and the apparatus of the puppet regime (army, police and security services). Among those operations are OPERATION SPARTAKUS (Slaves' Liberation Rebellion) on 26th of October 2005, and two other revolutionary operations BREAD and PEACE on Tuesday 2nd of March 2006.
On the 18th of March 2006 in Samaraa, our comrade NEWROZ (REZGAR MOHAMMAD), a university student, was arrested in a crossroad while he was accompanied by his wife. Our comrade has been subjected to the most barbaric and ferocious methods of torture on the hands of mercenaries of the fascist front composed of sectarian National Guards, swine of "Pesh Pesh Marga", wolves of BADER, remnants of Baath and the Iranian intelligence services. Glory to our hero and martyred comrade Rezgar Mohammad!
On the 19th of the same month, comrade AHWAR, an unemployed manual worker, was arrested and subjected to the same savage torture. Like comrade Rezgar, he stood up heroically against the coward and dirty torturers. On the same day in which comrade Rezgar was martyred, the 20th of March 2006, comrade AHWAR got martyred.
IRMO is present among the ranks of our Iraqi people, the proletariat, the peasantry, the students, women, trade unions and workers' organizations, and the intellectuals. We are active underground due to the political situation imposed on us by occupation, and due to the anti-people policies of their fascist-Nazi agents. We clearly declare that we work completely in secret with a security apparatus in order to ensure the continuity of our political activities to uphold the revolutionary communist principles, as well as to ensure the protection and strengthening of our armed wing, allowing our comrades to expand the front, the RSF, a front of immortal heroism known nationally, regionally and internationally.
Despite the fact that our organization was, and still is, underground, independent and has no organizational ties with the Iraqi Marxist-Leninist Revolutionaries' Regroupment (IMLRR), the latter has taken the initiative and suggested a coordination between us on the level information and media. Unfortunately, the IMLRR has exploited that coordination on the expense of the struggle of our conscious comrades, those who have participated in the establishment of our people's war movement of the Iraqi proletariat, the RSF. We should not waste this chance to salute our comrade, HAMORABI, for his heroic revolutionary vanguard role in embracing the armed strategy of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, a strategy followed by our immortal martyrs in this long march; his thorough understanding of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and the exceptional circumstances of Iraq at the current stage, a stage of American occupation which needs a study and analysis of the class struggle and the classes that have an interest in getting rid of class exploitation and imperialist occupation, and those which do not. According to such analysis, the strategic slogan that represents the aim of the Iraqi Maoist movement would be deduced. Lenin has correctly said: "during the course of history, any class that wanted to dominate had to have political leaders within its ranks, vanguard representatives capable of organizing the movement and leading it". He adds: "effective and experienced party leaders are forged slowly and with difficulties. Without this, the dictatorship of the proletariat and its unity of will are nothing but empty of all meaning". Thus, Marxist-Leninists see the revolutionary party as a real staff of the proletariat, such a party has to correctly solve the relationship between leaders and party, classes, masses, and organization according to the principle of central democracy. Such a party must have a relatively stable leading nucleus composed of experienced leaders able to maintain a unity between the universal truth of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and everyday practice of the revolution. Such leaders emerge from class struggle and the revolutionary movement of the people, and whether they are members of central committee or local party committee, they are absolutely loyal to their blood and flesh, the masses. Such leaders have the ability to concretely express the masses, and coherently put their ideas into action. Those leaders are true representatives of the masses. The Communist Party of China has always emphasized the Marxist-Leninist theory on the role of masses and individuals in history, the relationship between leaders and party, classes and masses, and linking those relationships with the principle of central democracy within the party.
Our martyred comrades have planned the work among masses as well as the political, practical and theoretical programme by adopting the strategy of armed struggle to defeat the capitalist enemy, domestic and foreign, a strategy built on psycho-technology: the use of media to psychologically weaken the class enemy. However, the IMLRR wanted to impose its will on our decisions and our essays published by MODERN DISCUSSION as well as their website. Most of those essays have been written by the Political Cadre of IRMO, despite the changes, omissions and mistakes carried out without consulting us. In addition, we have sent them many essays which they refused to publish without giving any reasons. Despite this practice, we decided not to expose such actions, taking into consideration the difficult political and practical situation of our comrades in IRMO and the armed wing RSF, as well as the situation of our heroic Iraqi people, a situation shaped by oppression and enslavement particularly of our working class and peasantry. For all of that, we decided that it is inappropriate to expose this discourtesy and this non-comradely behaviour which do not benefit the revolutionary communist struggle or the local or international working class and peasantry. We do not seek here to openly attack the comrades of IMLRR, it is not one of our aims here, however, we would like to emphasize the fact that we have been, and are on ground, present on all fields of struggle: theoretical, social, economic and military; we are present on the soil of Mesopotamia and not on the pages of internet, there is a difference. We understand reality as it is on ground not as it is on satellite TV channels and websites, we are not living in Europe and dreaming of socialist revolution and dictatorship of proletariat without any comrades or partisans present in the motherland. Surely this would be a dream which is not built on dialectical analysis, that is revolutionary Marxist-Leninist analysis.
Meanwhile, our comrades who established the RSF- which is carrying out the armed Maoist proletarian people's war- are currently working, with rifles on shoulders, to expand and develop the revolutionary struggle, hence to develop the proletarian revolution and the subjective ability to carry it out, as well as to raise our organizational methods in all fields to a higher level. We are ought to be an organized nucleus and a spark to the first Maoist proletarian people's revolution in the Middle East and a vanguard of middle eastern movements with all the high consequent responsibilities and all what it takes in terms of struggle and fighting. We realize that our spark has shined on the Middle East and the world and that it will be an example of firm adherence to revolutionary Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as vanguards of the east! Our Political Cadre and the leadership of RSF have proven to be reliable since they have paved the path, in its most difficult stage, to the first Iraqi Maoist armed proletarian people's revolution! We know that our voice and our struggle has attracted the attention of the Nazi Anglo-American governments of Jaafari and Maliki, which explains the fascist dirty conspiracies they plotted with the purpose of annihilating our cadres and destroying our movement. However, our movement is growing and getting stronger, and its revolutionary schools are competing, those schools which are smashing the fascists' conspiracies today, will tomorrow smash their bloodthirsty barbaric rule.
Therefore, we will continue our struggle and will adhere to our principles, we promise our martyrs to take the cause forward and to put their revolutionary testaments into action as a guarantee for bearing the difficult circumstances and to avenge for their martyrdom.
We wholeheartedly salute comrade HAMORABI for his revolutionary proletarian heroic leading role in founding our organization and its armed wing RFS.
