The Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement has long promoted the document ‘Long Live the Victory of People’s War’ by Lin Biao as a historic example of revolutionary Third World unity in the face of imperialism. Recently, the LLCO has uncovered a Spanish translation. The entire document can be found here in Spanish and here in English.

Chapter eight, formatted into a short English-language pamphlet is here.

Below are some quotes taken from Long Live The Victory of People’s War:

“U.S. imperialism has further weakened itself by occupying so many places in the world, over-reaching itself, stretching its fingers out wide and dispersing its strength, with its rear so far away and its supply lines so long.”

“At present, the main battlefield of the fierce struggle [between the people of the world on one side and U.S. imperialism and its lackeys on the other] is the vast area of Asia, Africa and Latin America.”

“The struggles waged by the different peoples against U.S. imperialism reinforce each other and merge into a torrential world-wide tide of opposition to U.S. imperialism… When the U.S. aggressors are hard pressed in one place, they have no alternative but to loosen their grip on others. Therefore, the conditions become more favourable for the people elsewhere to wage struggles against U.S. imperialism and its lackeys.”

“When committing aggression in a foreign country, U.S. imperialism can only employ part of its forces, which are sent to fight an unjust war far from their native land and therefore have a low morale, and so U.S. imperialism is beset with great difficulties.”

“The people subjected to its aggression are having a trial of strength with U.S. imperialism neither in Washington or New York, neither in Honolulu nor Florida, but are fighting for independence and freedom on their own soil. Once they are mobilized on a broad scale, they will have inexhaustible strength.”

“Every people or country in the world that wants revolution, independence and peace cannot but direct the spearhead of its struggle against U.S. imperialism”
