The Maoist Communist Party of China (Chinese: 中国毛泽东主义共产党) is an underground anti-revisionist communist party in the People's Republic of China following Marxism–Leninism–Maoism. MCPC seeks to overthrow the “traitorous revisionist ruling bloc within the Chinese Communist Party” (CPC), whose Dengist reforms are supposed to have “restored capitalist social conditions”. Following this goal, MCPC seeks to initiate a “second socialist revolution” to re-establish the dictatorship of the proletariat. The ultimate objective of MCPC is to achieve communism.[1]

MCPC was founded on 28 November 2008 and is gathering up members and supporters, in an unconfirmed status, ranging in the thousands within the rural lands of China.[2]

In 2007, 17 members of the CPC – ranging from retired officials, military officers and academics – issued a public letter to the CPC urging the end of the Dengist reforms and to return to “Mao Zedong Thought”. This became a significant upheaval to the minds of the Chinese working class, for it showed that the growing discontent of the CPC was not just by those on the streets and rural lands of China, but by those that have worked closely with those of the CPC as well.

The MCPC and related groups have been subject to crackdowns by the Chinese government.[3]
