Gente do "Sendero Lumininso" ( People of the Shining Path)

Democracy and Class Struggle says 25 years after the arrest and imprisonment of Chairman Gonzalo what became of the movement and the ideas he developed in Ayachuco Peru ?

The movement certainly suffered a setback and Harsh Thakor analyses some of the reasons here

However in the last 25 years the ideas of Marxism Leninism Maoism have spread like wildfire - with notable MLM movements in India and Nepal, Philippines and Turkey  MLM has also arisen in North America and Europe and Africa and Middle East.

The revolutionary ideology of  MLM is still under development and application - but history will record it as one of Chairman Gonzalo's immortal contributions to have systematized and summarized the contribution of Chairman Mao Zedong as the third stage of communism. 

Democracy and Class Struggle says Chairman Gonzalo's immortal contribution is a summation of Mao Zedong's contribution - it was not merely local Mao Zedong Thought but universal Marxism Leninism Maoism an idea that cannot be imprisoned that is rapidly developing in the real world in the last 25 years - that was summarized by Chairman Gonzalo.

The Path Shines bigger and brighter today around the world -  thanks to the people of Ayachuco who lit the first flame.
