The visit of the Deputy Secretary of
the CC NCPA, Comrade J Morgan, to Sydney, Australia to mark the 99th
Anniversary of the Communist Party of Australia is the first ever visit to an
international Communist Party by the NCPA, highlighting the vitality and
importance placed upon the alliance of trans-Tasman Communists by both sides.
While the two Parties are and will
remain independent in their efforts to apply Marxism-Leninism to national
conditions and build the conditions for socialist revolution, a trans-Tasman
relationship of cooperation is undeniably important. Our two countries are
strongly interconnected in financial, political, military and most importantly,
people-to-people ties. Any change in the social, economic or political situation
on one side of the Tasman will strongly influence, the other. Therefore,
Communists in both countries play close attention and give support to the other
The CC CPA welcomes the establishment
of the NCPA and expressed its hope that the NCPA will be able to successfully
lead New Zealand out of the low ebb of world socialism and re-popularise the
Communist theory and Party amongst the New Zealand working class.
The CC CPA also conveyed best wishes for the First National Congress of the NCPA to be held in Wellington on November 21-22 with the theme “The 21st Century: A New Era in Social Progress”, and accepted the kind invitation to send a delegation to participate in this Congress as a sign of the friendship between our two Parties.
The CC NCPA fully supports the renewed
and consolidated leadership of the CPA given the recent successes of the CC CPA
in re-establishing leadership based around firm Marxist-Leninist principles.
Comrade Morgan expressed the firm belief of the CC NCPA that the significant
history of the CPA and its continued adherence to Marxism-Leninism meant that
even after the low ebb of world socialism, the CPA is in a strong and stable
position to continue its traditionally important role in the Australian
workers’ movement and strengthen its ties to the masses.
Both sides fully intend to continue
the current trend of high-level and frequent discussion and cooperation between
the NCPA and CPA while looking for ways to further enhance a practical relationship
based on mutual respect and solidarity, friendship, non-interference and
cooperation under Marxist-Leninist principles of proletarian internationalism.
Long live the
fighting Communist Party of Australia and New Communist Party of Aotearoa!
