ON THE LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN THE POLICIES OF THE GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION [CC CPSU] M.S. GORBACHEV
Faced with catastrophic consequences for the people, the country, and the party due to M.S. Gorbachev's policy of so-called "Perestroika", and in view of the fact that this policy has absolutely revealed its bourgeois-restorationist character, and in consideration of the fact that we are on the brink of an even graver national catastrophe in connection with the planned implementation in the country of the "stabilization program" from the International Monetary Fund, which is disguised as a transitional program toward a market economy, the 3rd All-Union Conference of the Society "Unity, for Leninism and Communist Ideals," expresses its lack of confidence in the policies of M.S. Gorbachev as General Secretary of the CC CPSU.
We feel that the only force in the country capable of changing the course of the events in a constructive way, without leading to civil war, to date continues to remain the Communist Party.
We invite all honest, socialistically- and patriotically-oriented members of the CPSU, members of the Central Committee and the CC CPSU, party organizations at all levels, and the communist parties of all union republics to request the convening of a special meeting of the CPSU, to raise the question of:
- The dismissal of M.S. Gorbachev and his more zealous associates, who were involved in the unleashing of a bourgeois counterrevolution in the Soviet Union, from all elected party posts and about their exclusion from the ranks of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
- The recall of M.S. Gorbachev and said persons from deputy posts, to which they were appointed only because they were party functionaries.
- The immediate removal of the country from this general national crisis not along the path of the restoration of capitalism but of socialist renewal.
- An investigation into the real reasons and processes that formed this crisis situation during 1985-1900, which is unprecedented in terms of severity and danger for the Soviet government, and calling the guilty to account before the party and the country.
The All-Union Society "UNITY" recommends that all members of the organization develop propaganda campaigns for this resolution at the local level, firstly, by means of conducting open party, trade-union and similar meetings, to achieve the concurrence of CPSU party organizations.
Forward the proceedings from the open All-Union Party Conference to Call M.S. Gorbachev to Account before the Party to the CC CPSU, to newspapers, and to the political executive committee of "Unity".
The resolution was accepted unanimously.
