30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE END
OF THE LIBERATION AND UNIFICATION WAR
OF THE VIETNAMESE NATION …
TOMORROW EUROPE ?
April 30, 1975, the tanks of the national people’s Army of Vietnam supported
by the forces of Vietcong guerrillas seized the presidential palace of Saigon.
The puppet power of the South Vietnamese Kollabos
of the USA broke down, the Yankee ambassador left the city in shame, the
Star-Spangled banner rolled like a floorcloth under his arm.
long battle for the national and social liberation of Vietnam, started at the
dawn of the Twenties, was finally finished. The alliance of the communist
Party and the Vietnamese nationalist movement had overcome, a small courageous
people of peasant-soldiers had driven out the first imperialist power of the
world. A humiliation which the Yankee imperialists will never forget.
Vietnamese National-Communism gave there to the people of the world, and singularly to
the European Revolution, a lesson of courage and hope : YES AMERICA CAN BE
years after the victory of the progressist communist forces led by Ho Chi Minh
against the American imperialism, the
Vietnamese people still suffer from the innumerable after-effects of the odious
chemical weapons used by the imperialist bands ready for anything, at
the time, like today in other areas of the world, to destroy the nations which
resist their domination.
no repentance, no repairs. What
one grants so easily elsewhere is still disputed by the agressors three decades
later, until in front of the USA courts. Where the Americans, chemical industry
in the lead, refuse to compensate the Vietnamese victims of the famous orange
today, the USA again threaten Vietnam with their “Vietnam Human Rights Act”,
whose economic sanctions are an instrument of war intended to destroy a
political system opposed to the USA.
of American negationnism, Western propaganda aiming at rewriting the history of
the war by making pass the valorous communist combatants of the Indochinese
peninsula for monsters, years of demonization, of xenophobia in the books, films
and the speeches of the imperialists, however could not erase one of the
greatest revolutionary victories. And did not prevent their historical fight
from becoming an example for all the people confronted today with the terrorist
strategies of Washington and its vassal of NATO.
Vietnam war, through the lessons that all the revolutionary militants of the
world can still draw from, did not finish however in Saigon in 1975, but
continues its relentless march in the heart even of Europe thirty years later. The
unity of Vietnam, the union of a people divided for a too long time by the
Western imperialism, must be an example for Europe which the Americano-Zionist
imperialist domination seeks to divide up and to dismantle.
Vietnamese people, by an ardour which symbolizes thousands of Valmy, by
their sacrifices, their million victims assassinated by the Yankee roughneck
soldiers who, in spite of their technological superiority, finished broken
forever by the triumphing national-Communist revolution, show now the European
people how they must treat the imperialist invader.
if the depleted uranium of Iraq and Yugoslavia has replaced the orange gas of
Vietnam, the fatal strategy of imperialism is always the same one, except for a
difference. The Vietnam war was lost because the international opinion as a
whole was turned over against the American exactions, and developed from
Washington a machine of media propaganda so powerful that it is capable to
manipulate whole nations. The Western media, slaves of imperialism,
prostitutes of capitalist domination, petty Kollabos for whom the celebrations
to come in Vietnam inevitably imply some criticisms quite learned on the
evolution of the regime, intentionally prevent the European people from opening
the eyes on the modern colonialism of the United States.
greet with all our heart the legitimate pride of Vietnamese Communism, but we do
not forget that if the war over there stopped in 1975, it continued on our
European ground when Washington declared the war on national-Communist
Yugoslavia. And it extends today to the Middle East, where it strikes our
tens of thousands of American soldiers and the hundreds of thousands of
imperialist Kollabos of South-Vietnam who lost their life facing
the untameable ardour of national and revolutionary Communism, must be as
many signs of hope for each European progressist militant, in the West as in the
East. And Western imperialism, which triumphs now in the East, there
where Nazism had been finally overcome, has too quickly forgotten the
warning given by Ho Chi Minh and his liberated people to all those who want to
reduce the world in slavery.
The good hypocritical conscience of the United
States, its cynical negationnism with respect to the methods used in Vietnam
and, in general, to the American support for the reactionary dictatorships of
many countries, masks new exactions perpetrated again on behalf of the “free
world”, “capitalist democracy” and pseudo imperialist morals.
victory of National-Communism in Vietnam, linking narrowly national
and social liberation, is the heritage of the European and international
revolutionary militants. We must thwart the servile propaganda which, under
cover of large democratic statements, is only used to divide Europe with the
help of the nations of Kollabos, the famous “new Europe” – new like
was that of the Third Reich –, whose submission to imperialism recalls that of
South Vietnam during the war. Just as the Northern progressist forces have swept
the Vietnamese reactionaries, the European people will free themselves only by
definitively sweeping from the continent the reactionaries who betrayed the very
Then we too will be able to celebrate a new defeat of the Western imperialists and to join our voice to that eternal of the Vietnamese combatants whose victory will have been only the brilliant beginning of an international liberation of people and nations, the first of which will be a European continent, unitary, progressist and exemplary, rid of ethnic hatreds and capitalist domination.
