René Lévesque’s 1982 Letter to Willy Brandt (Socialist International)

 Willy Brandt, René Lévesque

L-R: Willy Brandt, René Lévesque

The Letter

In their French article entitled “Adhésion du Parti Québécois à l’Internationale Socialiste“, the Fédération des Québécois de Souche claims credit for a literal scoop from the archives of the Parti Québécois. And that is a scan of the letter dated December 6th, 1982, sent by René Lévesque to then-President of the SI, Willy Brandt.

The letter requests full membership of the Parti Québécois in the Socialist International, deemed by sources at The New American to be an extension of the original “Communist International”. However, Canada’s New Democratic Party — currently led by Thomas Mulcair (married to his Jewish psychologist) and formerly led by the late Jack Layton — has always been a full member of the Socialist International, a status the NDP inherited from its political forebear, the CCF.

My request to the Quebec Provincial Archives for a certified copy of the original letter met the response that they do not have this particular letter. The Provincial Archive suggests that the original letter must still be with the Parti Québécois. So, this really is a scoop. Congratulations to the F.Q.S.!

I claim credit for the first English translation of it, and for its first publication in English, here. See below. Downloads are available at the very end.

Quebec, on December 6th, 1982

Mr. Willy Brandt
President of the Socialist International
88a, St John’ s Wood High street [sic]
LONDON NW8 7SJ
Great Britain

Mr. President,

Founded less than fifteen years ago, counting more than 200,000 members, well rooted in all milieux, carried to power in 1976, seeing its mandate renewed at the time of the general election of April 1981, financed solely by the individuals who compose it, the Parti Québécois has become one of the most important mass parties of the western world, especially if account is taken of the fact that Quebec counts only a little more than six million inhabitants.

Bearer of the national and progressive aspirations of the Québécois people, it intends to affirm its presence on the international scene and to multiply contacts and exchanges with political organizations of other countries which share similar objectives.

In this spirit, in accordance with the wish expressed by the delegates brought together at the national congress last February, the Parti Québécois, by the resolution of its national Executive council dated November 26th, 1982, solicits full membership of the Socialist International, this absolutely essential world gathering place of the forces of progress and freedom.

Condemning any authoritative and oppressive form of government, communist or fascist in nature, conscious also of the need to correct the abuses of capitalism while causing the rights and freedoms of the individual and the general interest of the community to prevail over those of privileged and too-powerful groups, the Parti Québécois adheres without any restriction to the principles stated in the declarations of Frankfurt (1951) and Oslo (1962).

In its official program, the Parti Québécois declares that the main objective of every social-democratic party is:

“To unceasingly increase the democratic level of a society. It is not only a question of theoretically ensuring fundamental freedoms and the maintenance of democratic institutions, but to make it so that these freedoms really can be within the reach of one and all and that these institutions are used to increase the freedom of those who are the most disadvantaged. What is required is thus the elimination of discrimination and of the inequalities in human relations, the abolition of all class privilege, growth in quality of life for the most disadvantaged people of our society and the broadest possible participation of every citizen in decisions which affect them”.

In fact, as much by its program as by the policies carried out since it came to power, our political organism is conducting an experiment at one and the same time original and promising, unique in North America, of national emancipation, of social and economic democracy, of respect for the rights of minorities and of ethnic groups.

The following initiatives in particular have been taken: a referendum on the political status of the Québécois people; radical democratization of the financing of political parties, excluding by law any participation other than that from individuals, with supplemental aid from the State; sustained efforts in order to reduce the tax burden of persons of modest income and to more equitably redistribute the collective wealth; a public and universal regime of auto insurance; extension of and new strength breathed into the public sector of the economy; measures with a view to furthering unionization and ensuring better protection for the health and safety of employees; a “Charter of the French language” aimed at ensuring equal opportunity for the vast majority of French-language Québécois workers, while recognizing and protecting the rights of the anglophone minority; decentralization of the governmental apparatus and increased participation of citizens in the administrative authorities; rigorous protection of the environment and agricultural territory; initial attempts at co-decision among the principal socioeconomic agents; and finally a Charter of rights and freedoms of the person which we believe the most progressive in America.

For all the reasons which I have just evoked, I express with confidence, Mr. President, the wish that our membership application be favorably received by your management Office.

With my best regards,

René Lévesque
President of the Parti Québécois

Québec, le 6 décembre 1982

Monsieur Willy Brandt
Président de l’Internationale Socialiste
88a, St. John’s Wood High street
LONDRES NW8 7SJ
Grande-Bretagne

Monsieur le président,

Fondé il y a moins de quinze ans, comptant plus de 200 000 membres, bien enraciné dans tous les milieux, porté au pouvoir en 1976, voyant son mandant renouvelé lors du scrutin général d’avril 1981, financé uniquement par les individus qui le composent, le Parti Québécois est devenu un des partis de masse les plus importants du monde occidental, surtout si l’on tient compte du fait que le Québec ne compte qu’un peu plus de six millions d’habitants.

Porteur des aspirations nationales et progressistes du peuple québécois, il entend affirmer sa présence sur la scène internationale et multiplier les contacts et les échanges avec les formations politiques d’autres payes qui partagent des objectifs similaires aux siens.

Dans cet esprit, conformément au vœu exprimé par les délégués réunis au congrès national en février dernier, le Parti Québécois, par la résolution de son Conseil exécutif national en date du 26 novembre 1982, sollicite de devenir membre de plein droit de l’Internationale Socialiste, ce lieu de rassemblement mondial, absolument essentiel, des forces du progrès et de la liberté.

Condamnant toute forme autoritaire et oppressive de gouvernement, de nature communiste ou fasciste, conscient aussi de la nécessité de corriger les abus du capitalisme en faisant prévaloir les droits et libertés de la personne et l’intérêt général de la collectivité sur ceux des groupes privilégiés et trop puissants, le Parti Québécois adhère sans aucune restriction aux principes énoncés dans les déclarations de Francfort (1951) et d’Olso (1962).

Dans son programme officiel, le Parti Québécois déclare que l’objectif premier de tout parti social-démocrate est :

« D’accroître sans cesse le niveau démocratique d’une société. Il s’agit non seulement d’assurer théoriquement les libertés fondamentales et le maintien d’institutions démocratiques, amis de faire que ces libertés puissent être réellement à la portée de tous et de toutes et que ces institutions servent à accroître la liberté de ceux et de celles qui en sont le plus privés. Ce qui est recherché est donc l’élimination de la discrimination et des inégalités dans les relations humaines, l’abolition de tout privilège de classe, l’accroissement de la qualité de la vie pour les personnes les plus démunies de notre société et la plus large participation possible de chaque citoyen et de chaque citoyenne aux décisions qui les concernent ».

En fait, tout autant par son programme que par les politiques réalisées depuis qu’elle exerce le pouvoir, notre formation politique mène une expérience à la fois originale et prometteuse, unique en Amérique du Nord, d’émancipation nationale, de démocratie sociale et économique, de respect des droits des minorités et des groupes ethniques.

Les initiatives suivantes ont notamment été prises : référendum sur le statut politique du peuple québécois : démocratisation radicale du financement des partis politiques, excluant par la loi toute participation autre que celle des individus, avec une aide complémentaire de l’État; efforts soutenus afin d’alléger le fardeau fiscal des gens à revenu modeste et de redistribuer plus équitablement la richesse collective; régime public et universel d’assurance automobile; extension et vigueur nouvelle insufflée au secteur public de l’économie; mesures en vue de favoriser la syndicalisation et d’assurer une meilleure protection de la santé et de la sécurité des salariés; « Charte de la langue française » visant à assurer l’égalité des chances de la grande majorité des travailleurs Québécois, de langue française, tout en reconnaissant et protégeant les droits de la minorité anglophone; décentralisation de l’appareil gouvernemental et participation accrue des citoyens aux instances administratives; protection rigoureuse de l’environnement et du territoire agricole; premières tentatives de concertation des principaux agents socio-économiques; enfin une Charte des droits et libertés de la personne que nous croyons la plus progressiste en Amérique.

Pour toutes les raisons que je viens d’évoquer, je formule avec confiance, monsieur le président, le vœu que notre demande d’adhésion soit accueillie favorablement par votre Bureau de direction.

Avec l’expression de ma haute considération,

René Lévesque
Président du Parti Québécois

What is the FLQ but the Terrorist Wing of the NDP?

Who Is Running The Break-Up Of Canada?
“Liberals” Or NDP Communists?

DIVIDE, CONQUER & OVERTHROW:what

NDP plays the “Clarity” game for North American Union. They’ve been doing it for decades: turn the French against the English to break up the country, to dissolve the Constitution of Canada for North American Multicultural Soviet Union.

 

Where does Canada’s “break-up” come from?

It comes from the NDP’s man, Marxist-Machiavellian Trudeau, who promoted the NDP in 1963, and jumped to the Liberals AS A FRONT in 1965, to put Canada on the rails for his Marxist pals.

Using phony “trade deals” to hide the gradual remodeling of Canada for regional union, pending dissolution by phony referendums to “secede” as the means to dismantle Canada for regional union, Trudeau built up his Communist pal René Lévesque.

In the April 1962 issue of his magazine featured in the image at left, Trudeau and a raft of his fellow leftists promote regionalism for Canada as their “alternative” to the “separatism” which they, themselves, have been fomenting underground, creating the ‘problem’ so they could offer their own Marxist-globalist, anti-national, regional ‘solution’.

This begins the Trudeau march toward regional North American Union commenced by him and his own entourage in the 1950s. For, in the decade prior to this issue of Cité Libre, these same Marxists infiltrate Quebec trade unions and their publications, the daily newspapers such as La Presse and Le Devoir, and are encouraged by the federal broadcasting corporation, our outrageous CBC-Radio Canada, which virtually excludes all public opinion which opposes “the Left”. For eyewitness details on that, see my exclusive English translation of a couple of chapters from Robert Rumilly’s 1956 book, “The Leftist Infiltration in French Canada” (L’Infiltration gauchiste au Canada français).

The leftists infiltrated and undermined respectable nationalist institutions, diverting them all to their own leftist ideology, “class struggle” and support of violence and terror to destroy respectable Christian society.

These leftists, exposed by Rumilly, denounced the elected representatives of the French Canadians as “tyrants”. Well, what is their own alternative today? Under Marxist Trudeau’s 1982 coup constitution, which supposedly protects “rights”, a Christian minister, Pastor Mark Harding, has been convicted of “hate crimes” for opposing the advent of Islam in Canada. One of Canada’s new, Soviet-style socialist tribunals then sentenced the Christian pastor to “re-education camp” with a Muslim Imam, to forcibly alter his political and religious views, contrary to his own Christian conscience!

This same gang of Marxists in the 1950s, with the aid of their own Marxist lawyers, went to the Supreme Court of Canada to defend and protect the “rights” of Communists to freedom of conscience and expression. Apparently, now the tide has turned, these same Marxists having seized control of Canada, the new, true “tyrants” do not tolerate official views other than their own.

Meanwhile, back in the mid-1960s, Trudeau’s own pro-Soviet “Cité Libre” writers “quit” that magazine to become the two major FLQ terrorist leaders. One of the two also belonged to Trudeau’s true political choice, the NDP, before he “quit” to lead the terrorists: Pierre Vallières.

The other one, Charles Gagnon, would eventually “quit” the FLQ for the even more radical Maoists, and with Gilles Duceppe whose father was an NDP founding member, Gagnon then wrote for the even more radical magazine “En lutte !” (Struggle !).1

The NDP terrorists’ job: harness the FLQ to support Communist Lévesque and “sovereignty association” — which is the EU system for Canada, and the basis of global government over regional unions.

The NDP, like the CCF before it, has always supported world government; and both the NDP and its renamed version, the CCF, have always been members of the Socialist International, successor to the last Communist International, seeking world government.

Sedition is a criminal act. Sedition occurs when those in office abuse their power to promote or perpetrate unconstitutional acts. Turning citizens against each other is also the crime of sedition. Destroying the country and its lawful constitution is the high crime of treason known as a coup d’état — but you won’t notice who is really doing it, if you can blame it all on Quebec, by maligning its people while seizing and subverting its government.

There is no power to “secede” at s. 92 of the BNA Act, 1867; but that won’t stop a Marxist from infiltrating the Liberals to pretend there is one, any more than it will stop a Marxist from “quitting” the NDP to lead terrorists in demanding it. Thus, the NDP plays both ends against the middle!

And then comes FLQ terrorism: bombings and murders of Canadians, kidnappings, and phony “War Measures” by their man on top who infiltrated Canada for them. Let me underscore it: both major FLQ terrorist leaders came from Marxist-NDP-member-and-candidate Trudeau’s pro-Communist magazine, Cité Libre.2

In the midst of which, NDP Leader, Michel Chartrand:

“remained steadfast in his beliefs, and proved it by bailing FLQ leader Charles Gagnon out of jail, paying nearly three thousand dollars of his own money.”

That’s $3,000.00 in the 1960s.

What was the FLQ, if not the terrorist wing of the Marxist NDP, with its leaders issuing directly out of NDP’er Trudeau’s pro-Communist magazine?

Is terror a “Liberal” tool or a Marxist NDP tool?

Is “secession” a Liberal tool, or a Marxist NDP tool? Ask William Zebulon Foster, author of “Toward Soviet America” who threatened the USA with “secession” of the southern Black States.

Who but “former” NDP-Marxist-Cité Libre writer-FLQ terrorist leader, Pierre Vallières would falsely and maliciously call French Canada the “White Niggers of America,” thus modeling Quebec and the breakup of Canada on Foster’s Communist threats to use the Negroes in the southern “Black Belt” to split up America.3

The Liberals are always blamed for trying to annex Canada to the USA. That might be true if you are talking of real Liberals, who always wanted a republic. But it is not true if you are speaking of NDP Marxists who are closet Communists posing as Liberals and seeking North American Communist regional union: the destruction of that Republic, and of Canada.

Terror is not a tool of real Liberals; but it is a standard tool of Marxists, who wish to use it to abolish private property (check your NDP Party constitution, that’s a PLANK – no more private property).

 


“We have no compassion and we ask no compassion from you. When our turn comes, we shall not make excuses for the terror.”
— Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels “Suppression of the Neue Rheinische Zeitung“, Neue Rheinische Zeitung, May 19, 1849.

“Those dogs of democrats and liberal riff-raff will see that we’re the only chaps who haven’t been stultified by the ghastly period of peace.” – Karl Marx to Friedrich Engels (Letter, 25 February 1859).

Vallières entitled his pro-Communist diatribe “White Niggers of America”, adding a subtitle that fails to appear on subsequent big-press editions by McLelland and Stewart: The Precocious Autobiography of a Quebec “Terrorist”.

Vallières put “terrorist” in quotes on the cover, as if this unabashed description of an ignorant man who set out to lead murderers of his fellow citizens is inaccurate.

No greater defamation of parliamentary government could be heaped upon a nation and a people than to allege they are “slaves” in their country. No greater lie could be told than to pretend that French Canadians were “white niggers” and “slaves” in Canada.

The French Canadians in Quebec have always been “masters in their own house” in Confederation. They possessed supreme legislative institutions for their own self-government and protection. Whether they always knew how to use them, or even realized what they had, may be another question. Because if you know what you’ve got, you won’t easily buy the line that you are a “white nigger” and a “slave” in North America.

Moreover, Trudeau himself, arch-Marxist and beguiler, was well aware that French Canadians don’t know their own history and constitution (quite convenient to a Marxist deceiver). Law professor Trudeau admits it in the same April 1962 issue of Cité Libre featured above. Said Trudeau (translation):

“The upshot of all this is that in posing independence as a good thing in itself, an affair of dignity for every “normal people”, we launch the world on a strange war-ship. It has been claimed that any sincere anti-colonialist who wants independence for Algeria must also want it for Quebec. This reasoning contends that Quebec is a political dependency, which is to be ill informed of one’s constitutional history; but even if that were the case …. “

Footnotes:

1  Notice that today, Gilles Duceppe (ex-colleague of a Cité Libre terrorist) supports good old Communist regional union — underway now. In his 2005 article in French daily, Le Devoir, a paper long ago captured by the Marxists (read Rumilly), Duceppe demands “sovereignty” for Québec in order to protect its interests in the context of regional union.

In fact, regional union cannot be finalized until Canada and Quebec are both destroyed as sovereign entities, and that requires the initial step of a “Yes” in a final referendum to facilitate the “negotiations”. Which is precisely what the FLQ terrorists were created for: to provide an excuse to begin the “negotiations”.

Read my exclusive English translation of Duceppe’s: “For a continental integration respectful of the differences” or his French original: “Pour une intégration continentale respectueuse des différences“.

2  “Le directeur de Révolution québécoise, Pierre Vallières, 26 ans, est alors secrétaire du Syndicat des journalistes de Montréal (C.S.N.) et l’un des dirigeants de la grève en cours à La Presse. Ex-membre du parti socialiste, il a été codirecteur pendant six mois de Cité libre, une revue fondée par des intellectuels libéraux réformistes comme Pierre Elliott Trudeau et Gérard Pelletier pour combattre le régime Duplessis dans les années 50. Quant à Charles Gagnon, le secrétaire de la rédaction, il est chargé de cours en littérature à l’Université de Montréal. Âgé de 25 ans, il a œuvré à Cité libre avec Vallières et est très actif dans le mouvement étudiant.” Source: F.L.Q. Histoire d’un mouvement clandestin (1982) by Louis Fournier.

Translation: The director of Révolution québécoise, Pierre Vallières, is 26 years old, is secretary to the Syndicat des journalistes de Montréal (C.S.N.) (the Montreal journalists trade union), and is one of the directors of the strike underway at La Presse. A former member of the socialist party [meaning the NDP by another name in Quebec], he was a co-director for six months of Cité libre, a review founded by Liberal intellectual reformers such as Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Gérard Pelletier to combat the Duplessis régime in the 1950s. As for Charles Gagnon, a copy-editor, he is a junior lecturer in literature at the University of Montreal. Aged 25, he has worked at Cité libre with Vallières and is very active in the student movement.”

Translator’s note: Trudeau and Pelletier were not “Liberals” at the time they founded their Pro-Soviet Cité libre in the 50s. They were socialists and NDP’ers who modeled their review on the crypto-communist, pro-regionalist magazine Esprit in France which promoted Marxist principles, opposed traditional Christianity, and agitated for regionalism in Europe. Both men jumped to the Liberals in 1965 to use that other party as a front to push forward regional communist union for Canada and North America. You have to know a little before you read Fournier, who is a partisan of the leftist movement.

3  Said Communist author and leader William Z. Foster (pp. 303-304:

“The status of the American Negro is that of an oppressed national minority, and only a Soviet system can solve the question of such minorities. This it does, in addition to setting up real equality in the general political and social life, by establishing the right of self-determination for national minorities in those parts of the country where they constitute the bulk of the population. The constitution of the Soviet Union provides that, “Each united republic retains the right of free withdrawal from the Union.” “The recognition of the right of all nations, irrespective of race, to complete self-determination, that is, self-determination inclusive of the right to State separation.”

Accordingly, the right of self-determination will apply to Negroes in the American Soviet system. In the so-called Black Belt of the South, where the Negroes are in the majority, they will have the fullest right to govern themselves and also such white minorities as may live in this section.

Translator’s note: Ahoy, the double standard. If Negroes are a minority in all of the USA, the white majority is called upon to integrate them and give them equal rights to governance over all, which obviously would result in a quite different society, culture and form of government. However, if whites are a minority in the Black Belt, the Negroes will have the right to govern “over” them in a Soviet America.

In other words, the founding peoples of America, who happen to be white (a bad thing), have no right to preserve their own government and culture against dissimilar minorities. They have no right to ask these minorities to adopt their system. But these dissimilar minorities have an absolute right to subordinate white people to their own Black rule and culture. This is not statesmanship, but double-talk to divide and conquer existing powerful nations and peoples.

The same approach was taken in Canada by Cité Libre terrorist, Pierre Vallières, who chose to identify white French Canadians and Quebec in Canada with the Negroes of the Black Belt in William Foster’s American South.
