To our friends in Finland and in the international communist movement
The Red Flag Collective has held a successful reorganizing meeting,
through which our organization has been cast anew. The meeting was held
because the one and half year since the initiation of our activities has
demonstrated the need to renew our organization as well as to sharpen
our line and present it unified.
The meeting adopted a temporary program which for the first time
uniformly defines our ideological basis, which is
Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, and defines the situation and tasks
internationally and in Finland. Our organization upholds this program as
a most valuable guide for Finnish communists, and it orients our work as
a whole, the work in which the gained development creates preconditions
to uplift the program to an even higher level.
The meeting defined as our acute task the tactical withdrawal from
practice, so that we could concentrate our few resources to heighten our
ideological level as the basic prerequisite for all correct practice,
and in the meeting it was underlined that our intention is to heighten
our practice to a higher level, and that only from this premise we
consider that tactical withdrawal as a correct and indispensable move.
The meeting also approved a plan, at the center of which is to study the
basic question of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism that is political power, the
development of Marxism-Leninism into Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, and the
application of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, in Finland.
The investigation will concretize into an article, in which we
investigate the Maoist doctrine about political power and in which we
evaluate the class war of Finland 1918; the article will be published
during the first half of next year.
The meeting sends a red salute to unorganized Marxists in Finland,
urging them to adopt Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and to organize on its
basis. The meeting also sends its red salute to our brothers and sisters
in the international communist movement, assuring our sincere pursuit to
carry out our revolutionary duty in Finland as part of and as service
for the world revolution.
