The following article is from The Red Star, newspaper of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist):

Kathmandu, Apr. 3 – The two party unity completes today. UCPN-Maoist and the CPN-Unified have declared the party unity organizing a big gathering in National Assembly House in the capital city Kathmandu. The unity was declared after the unity was done in party office.

On the occasion of declaration, former General Secretary of CPN-Unified and present standing committee member Navraj Subedi said that the unity will certainly inspire to fulfill the left responsibilities for the completion of the revolution. He said that the insurrection has its different forms and it is possible though there are many challenges before it.

Pointing out the necessity to be critical to the past history of the party, Subedi said that the achievements that are achieved from the People’s War are common achievements for all the revolutionaries and the communists.

Party chairman Prachanda, emphasizing on the unity, said that the party unity has a deep and symbolic meaning. Before Marxism was originated it was right to exploit to the people. However, after the origination of Marxism, the world view changed and it has been changed into it is right to rebel in place of it is right to exploit.

Pointing out the continuous newness in the party, Prachanda said that the process of negation of negation makes the party new and new through the revolutionary processes. The devotion, dedication and the sacrifice of the thousands of warriors has laid a strong foundation for the unity among the revolutionaries.

  1. Hasn’t the CPN-Unified participated in the International Communist Seminar (Brussels)? I wonder how this will affect the international line of the Maoist party.

    It is time all left parties unite on minimum programme. The parties are mostly divided to the delight our enemies. The divisions are mostly on theretical considerations which have no relevenace for the immediate situation we are facing world over. Such differences should be resolved only in practice..that is the Marxist dictum. Let us close our ranks and get out of this one hundred years of self destructive divisions. Our differences should be debated in closed oors with our cadres.

    • I agree that parties and organizations need to unify, but not at all costs. Unity at all costs means giving the lead to opportunist forces, as Lenin pointed out again and again. Or as Mao put it, “If we seek unity through struggle, it will live; if we seek unity through yielding, it will die.”

      I firmly believe that the splits that have occured in the International Communist Movement since the 1960s, 70s and 80s reflected real differences. But many of those differences can be overcome now, 40 or 50 years later, based on common struggle against a common enemy.

      Real unity must be firmly based on Marxist-Leninist principles. I also believe that the 1999 Declaration of the International Communist Seminar provides a framework for building principled unity and overcoming differences, as scores of parties and organizations originally from different tendencies around the world have united with it.

      I am glad the revolutionaries in Nepal in building unity among themselves in order to carry the struggle forward.

    This is not a MLM type of unity . This unity will not create any energy in the party, because there are so many issues to be solved. this type of unity only creates anarcism in the party.
