THE 200th birth anniversary of Karl Marx is observed internationally on 5th May. His revolutionary thought had challenged the barbarous capitalism and gave a new orientation to the world people for realizing a communist world through social revolutions and socialist transformation. It opened the era of national liberations and socialist revolutions. Though this upsurge suffered setbacks, it is again and again proved that only by developing the Marxist theory and practice according to present conditions a new wave of socialist upheavals can be created overthrowing the imperialist global system.

As far as our party is concerned, it has developed to present ideological-political-organizational positions by daring to make a thorough evaluation of the experience of the hitherto revolutionary movement, to make continuous efforts to develop Marxist theory according to present conditions, and to develop the political line and practice accordingly. It called for re-reading of Marxist contributions in depth. An article explaining the Party’s efforts to study the Marxist theory and the development of the politics and practice based on it is published in this issue to provide the basis for developing the discussion towards the approach to Marxism. The development of the understanding towards transformation of the imperialist system from the colonial to the neo-colonial phase in the post Second World War period, studies on caste system leading to developing the caste annihilation movement emphasizing the significance of the renaissance movement, understanding of the unfolding ecological catastrophe leading to putting forward the contradiction between nature and capital as one of the major contradictions, studies on people’s political power transcending the bourgeois parliamentary system, developing concept of people oriented development paradigm rejecting imperialist development perspective etc could be taken up by the Party based on these studies on Marxist theory along with the contributions of Lenin to Mao.

Along with the call of the ICOR, the CPI(ML) Red Star calls upon all party committees to observe the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birthday by organizing discussions, seminars and classes on the relevance of Marxism to overcome the present crisis faced by the humankind and to create a new egalitarian world. 
