After a long and serious illness, on June 5, 2011, former chairman of the Workers’ Party of Belgium (WPB), Ludo Martens (1946-2011) died. Politician and scientist Ludo Martens conducted extensive research on the causes of the collapse of socialism in the USSR and Eastern Europe, and he has written several books on the subject. He believed in the strengthening and unification of the international communist movement on the basis of scientific socialism and in the spirit of internationalism. Many of us knew him especially as the initiator of the annual International Communist Seminar, which from 1992 to early 2000-s took place under his personal chairmanship. Our party, the AUCPB also took an active part in the seminars.

Ludo Martens began his revolutionary activities in May 1968, becoming one of the most prominent student leaders of the European events of May 1968. He brought innovative ideas from around the world to universities through the establishment of student union movement (SVB), developed solidarity with the struggle of black people in America for equal rights, fought against the narrowness of nationalism and made great efforts to enhance solidarity between the student and worker movements.

In 1979, Ludo Martens was one of the founders of the leftist Workers’ Party of Belgium, originated in the merger of student and labour movement in the turbulent 1970's. Ludo Martens turned into reality the slogan "serve the people" among other things by supporting the organization "Medicine for the People".
11 "Medicine for the People" clinics that are free today, service more than 25000 patients and have been and remain one of the most important achievements of the WPB. The WPB today has 4,500 members and has grassroots organizations in 30 cities and 120 workplaces Belgium.

Ludo Martens led the WPB until 1999. In the last decade of his life, he was particularly active in the Congo. With his books on the Congolese freedom fighters - Patrice Lumumba, Pierre Mulele and Leonie Abo he wanted to support the progressive movement in Congo. "Returning history to those who made it," as he would put it.

The Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks in connection with the untimely death of Comrade Ludo Martens, expresses deep condolences to the members of the Workers’ Party of Belgium (WPB), close relatives and friends of Comrade Ludo Martens, and to everyone who knew and worked with him. His bright image of a politician, communist, scientist, intelligent, very humble and charming man will live forever in our hearts.

The General Secretary of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (CC AUCPB) N.A. Andreeva
