Dear Comrades:

On behalf of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Canada, we send you our condolences on the passing of Comrade Haroldo Lima, a veteran leader of the Communist Party of Brazil, a Communist parliamentarian, a writer, an engineer, a Minister in the Lula government, and a fearless fighter for the working people and for socialism.

The history of Comrade Lima’s life is the history of the Communist Party, and of the struggles of the Brazilian people against reaction and fascism, imperialist domination, for fundamental reforms and for a socialist transformation.  Brutal repression by the military dictatorship against the Party led to the murder, incarceration and torture of hundreds of Party cadres, in an effort to extinguish the Communist Party and the light of social and political liberation that it represents to the Brazilian people.

Comrade Lima’s refutation and struggle against imperialism’s efforts to liquidate Marxism-Leninism and scientific socialism during the 1990s, while also fighting the physical liquidation of the Communist Party and its cadres, is a testament to his exemplary character and leadership.

His role in Brazil’s parliament, leading the Communists elected there, and fighting for unity in the struggle for democracy, for social progress and socialism is an example of how best to unite the parliamentary and extra-parliamentary struggles for significant reforms, leading to socialist transformation.

The Communist Party and the Brazilian people have lost a great leader and fighter for socialism, for the emancipation of  working people from capitalist exploitation, oppression, war, and reaction.   The Communist and Workers’ movement world-wide has lost a leading cadre, whose selfless and heroic devotion to the liberation of the working people of Brazil will not be forgotten.

We send our deepest sympathy and condolences to Comrade Haroldo Lima’s family, and to the Central Committee and the members of the CP do Brazil.

Yours in the Struggle,

Elizabeth Rowley

Dear Comrade Luciana,

It was with great sorrow that we learned of the death of Comrade Haroldo Lima who you lost to COVID-19 on March 24th. The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) sends its condo­lences to the leadership and all members of PCdoB and to Solange and Haroldo’s family. We express sympathies to the Brazilian people who have lost a significant leader, a lifelong fighter for the cause for peace, democracy and progress.

A leader like Haroldo forged by a communist party such as the PCdoB is a very precious thing. His courageous resistance to the military dictatorship, for which he was tortured and jailed; his dec­ades of important clandestine work for the PCdoB; the five terms he served as a federal deputy elected by the people of Bahia; and his contribution to defending the national sovereignty and the economic and social development of Brazil in his capacity as Director General of the National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency during the PT government of President Lula are all proof of a leadership whose quality is what is needed in these difficult times.

Our Party has also suffered the loss of comrades to COVID-19, a source of great indignation, as these tragic deaths did not have to happen but are the result of private interests run amok with the complicity of governments in their service.

Like you, we know that the legacy of those who have been so cruelly struck down will live on in the work of those who continue to organize the working people to empower themselves and put an end to the nation-wrecking and destruction of neoliberal governments in the service of imperial­ism and darkest reaction.

We were fortunate to meet Comrade Haroldo on several occasions in the course of joint work.

We wish you all strength and courage to overcome his loss and these difficult times.

With sincere condolences

Anna Di Carlo,

National Leader

Dear comrades,

We are deeply saddened by the news of the loss of Haroldo Lima, a major figure in the Partido Comunista do Brasil (PCdoB).

This awful pandemic takes away from us a comrade who has been a leading figure for his activity against the dictatorship in Brazil, for his militancy and his political commitment.

Haroldo Lima has been a key figure in the economic and social development of the country. He leaves a fundamental legacy for the younger generation and the future of popular struggles in favour of the working classes.

We want to send a warm embrace to the family of Haroldo Lima and the comrades of the PCdoB on this sad day. His memory will last in our common future struggles.

Camaradas do PCdoB: Queremos fazer-lhes chegar a nossa amostra de pesar pelo falecemento do importante quadro e dirigente comunista Haroldo Lima no dia de ontem. O desaparecimento físico de um militante sempre deixa um vazio mas a sua trajectória e o seu compromisso fazem parte de uma história que se constrói com o exemplo de vida e militancia. Casualmente a morte do camarada foi nas vésperas do 99 aniversário da fundação do Partido Comunista do Brasil, ao que dedicou mais de meio século de militancia, mas sabemos que todos vocês seguirão o seu exemplo, erguendo a bandeira de luta por um Brasil verdadeiramente soberano caminho do socialismo.

Recebam um abraço dos seus camaradas da UPG.
