Great Lenin! Ninety eight years after your passing, on January 21, 1924, we continue the struggle to which you dedicated your life — the struggle to liberate the workers and oppressed peoples of the whole world.
Thanks to you, the trail was blazed. You taught us that the struggle has many twists and turns. In times of upheaval, some who seemed like opponents will become your best comrades in arms, while many who seemed solid will lose their way, and still others will emerge to pick up the red banner they abandoned.
To hold onto your revolutionary principles and history, while never surrendering your ability to think critically using the tools of Marxism; to combine these unflinching principles with the greatest flexibility in strategy and tactics; to always maintain a class analysis of imperialism and the state; to uphold the struggles of the oppressed nations and peoples; to build a revolutionary combat organization that can lead the workers to power — these are just a few of your teachings that we cherish and struggle daily to uphold.
