What we fight for
- Our central aim is the organisation of communists, revolutionary socialists and all politically advanced workers into a Communist Party. Without organisation the working class is nothing; with the highest form of organisation it is everything.
- The Provisional Central Committee organises members of the Communist Party, but there exists no real
Communist Party today. There are many so-called ‘parties’ on the left. In reality they are confessional sects.
Members who disagree with the prescribed ‘line’ are
expected to gag themselves in public. Either that or
- Communists operate according to the principles of
democratic centralism. Through ongoing debate we
seek to achieve unity in action and a common world
outlook. As long as they support agreed actions,
members have the right to speak openly and form
temporary or permanent factions.
- Communists oppose all imperialist wars and occupations but constantly strive to bring to the fore the
fundamental question - ending war is bound up with
- Communists are internationalists. Everywhere we
strive for the closest unity and agreement of working
class and progressive parties of all countries. We oppose every manifestation of national sectionalism. It
is an internationalist duty to uphold the principle, ‘One
state, one party’. To the extent that the European
Union becomes a state then that necessitates EU-wide trade unions and a Communist Party of the EU.
- The working class must be organised globally. Without a global Communist Party, a Communist International, the struggle against capital is weakened
and lacks coordination.
- Communists have no interest apart from the working
class as a whole. They differ only in recognising
the importance of Marxism as a guide to practice.
That theory is no dogma, but must be constantly
added to and enriched.
- Capitalism in its ceaseless search for profit puts the
future of humanity at risk. Capitalism is synonymous
with war, pollution, exploitation and crisis. As a global
system capitalism can only be superseded globally.
All forms of nationalist socialism are reactionary and
- The capitalist class will never willingly allow their
wealth and power to be taken away by a parliamentary vote. They will resist using every means at their
disposal. Communists favour using parliament and
winning the biggest possible working class representation. But workers must be readied to make
revolution - peacefully if we can, forcibly if we must.
- Communists fight for extreme democracy in all
spheres of society. Democracy must be given a social
- We will use the most militant methods objective
circumstances allow to achieve a federal republic of
England, Scotland and Wales, a united, federal Ireland
and a United States of Europe.
- Communists favour industrial unions. Bureaucracy
and class compromise must be fought and the trade
unions transformed into schools for communism.
- Communists are champions of the oppressed. Women’s oppression, combating racism and
chauvinism, and the struggle for peace and ecological
sustainability are just as much working class questions
as pay, trade union rights and demands for high-quality health, housing and education.
- Socialism represents victory in the battle for
democracy. It is the rule of the working class. Socialism
is either democratic or, as with Stalin’s Soviet Union,
it turns into its opposite.
- Socialism is the first stage of the worldwide transition to communism - a system which knows neither
wars, exploitation, money, classes, states nor
nations. Communism is general freedom and the real
beginning of human history.
- All who accept these principles are urged to join
the Communist Party.
