Earlier this week, graffiti actions were carried out in Germany and Denmark under the slogan “Defend the Life of Chairman Gonzalo!” These efforts, carried out on the 85th anniversary of Gonzalo’s birth, help publicize the worldwide campaign to defend the Chairman from the threat of assassination posed by the Peruvian state.
A statement posted on the Danish site Socialistik Revolution reads:
“Chairman Gonzalo is the great leader of the international proletariat, the Peruvian Communist Party, and the Peruvian Revolution. He has been in solitary confinement since September 1992, imprisoned by the reactionary Peruvian State who wait only for the chance to assassinate the great Communist.
The International Communist Movement recognizes Chairman Gonzalo as the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist on the face of the Earth and believes that the campaign in defense of his life is inextricably linked to the struggle to impose Maoism as the commanding and guiding ideology of the Proletarian World Revolution.”
