 Progressive Labor Party on Race & Racism

OUR FIGHT

 

Progressive Labor Party (PLP) fights to destroy capitalism and the dictatorship of the capitalist class. We organize workers, soldiers and youth into a revolutionary movement for communism.

Only the dictatorship of the working class — communism — can provide a lasting solution to the disaster that is today’s world for billions of people. This cannot be done through electoral politics, but requires a revolutionary movement and a mass Red Army led by PLP.

Worldwide capitalism, in its relentless drive for profit, inevitably leads to war, fascism, poverty, disease, starvation and environmental destruction. The capitalist class, through its state power — governments, armies, police, schools and culture —  maintains a dictatorship over the world’s workers. The capitalist dictatorship supports, and is supported by, the anti-working-class ideologies of racism, sexism, nationalism, individualism and religion.

While the bosses and their mouthpieces claim “communism is dead,” capitalism is the real failure for billions worldwide. Capitalism returned to Russia and China because socialism retained many aspects of the profit system, like wages and privileges. Russia and China did not establish communism.

Communism means working collectively to build a worker-run society. We will abolish work for wages, money and profits. Everyone will share in society’s benefits and burdens. 

Communism means abolishing racism and the concept of “race.” Capitalism uses racism to super-exploit black, Latino, Asian and indigenous workers, and to divide the entire working class.

Communism means abolishing the special oppression of women — sexism — and divisive gender roles created by the class society.

Communism means abolishing nations and nationalism. One international working class, one world, one Party.

Communism means that the minds of millions of workers must become free from religion’s false promises, unscientific thinking and poisonous ideology. Communism will triumph when the masses of workers can use the science of dialectical materialism to understand, analyze and change the world to meet their needs and aspirations.

  Communism means the Party leads every aspect of society. For this to work, millions of workers — eventually everyone — must become communist organizers. Join Us!

China at 70: A Betrayal of communist revolution

Xi Jinping’s capitalist government recently “celebrated” the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. The Chinese bosses displayed the new Dong Feng 41 hypersonic ballistic missile, which can reach any target within the U.S. These traitors to the Chinese Communist Revolution were sending a clear message to their main imperialist rival: They are ready to claim the position as the capitalist world’s top dog. The Chinese bosses are ready to go to war to claim that position, even if it means spilling the blood of millions of workers.

Liberal fascists try to smash gutter racist Trump

The opening of the Trump impeachment inquiry by the Nancy Pelosi-led big fascist liberal bosses is a sharpening of the battle between the big and small fascist factions of the U.S. ruling class.  The escalation in this fight between fascists exposes the desperation of the big fascist liberal bosses to take back the White House from their small fascist rivals, even if it means gutting the presidency - one of the ruling class’ key institutions. Since the main wing/big fascist faction of the U.S. ruling class is unsure it can win the 2020 election, they are taking this opportunity to try to smash Trump and his small fascist backers now.
The liberals or the big fascists have never cared about keeping children out of cages or any of Trump’s other atrocities. They pioneered them all. But world events are putting pressure on the big fascists to do something to hold onto their own murderous empire.

CHICAGO, October 9—For anti-racist learning and working conditions, education workers are set to strike on October 17.
The Chicago Teachers Union’s (CTU) leadership fights within the confines of a capitalist system that can never meet workers’ needs.

Progressive Labor Party’s (PLP) ultimate goal is to organize a revolution to overthrow capitalism, seize state power, and create a communist society.

Crush General Motors & Borders!

CHICAGO, October 7—The ongoing strike of close to 50,000 General Motors (GM) workers, now entering its fourth week, demonstrates the resilience and determination of the working class.

Boston: Nurses in every school, still need communism

BOSTON,October 9—For the last nine years, Progressive Labor Party and its allies have been fighting for a nurse in every Boston public school. Led by a core group, many nurses, with support from other union members, fought for this demand and we finally won. It is a sad commentary on this capitalist society that it took nine years to win such a basic necessity. It is also a testament to the heroic workers who persevered in this struggle. Now we need a further commitment to get rid of this capitalist system once and for all. We need a revolution for communism where the working class organizes health care for everyone.
For safety, a nurse must be present in a school to cover emergencies. But also 1/3 of our students have chronic health conditions, such as asthma and  diabetes, that must be managed by a school nurse daily or as-needed. School nurses also provide a safe place for children worried about abusive situations, homelessness, fear of deportation raids, hunger, and difficult family situations.

Ecuador: Workers rebel vs. capitalist crisis

Quito, Ecuador, October 9–Workers’ anger and frustration exploded in Ecuador, paralyzing the country from Quito, the capital city, to the Pacific coast, storming and occupying the parliment  building and sending President Lenin Moreno into hiding. These protests come after Moreno unveiled plans to impose austerity measures that threaten to plunge workers further into the abyss of poverty and capitalist exploitation. These massive protests across Ecuador demonstrate what the bosses fear most: workers, when organized and angry, have the power to bring the capitalist system to a screeching halt. However, absent communist politics and leadership, which Progressive Labor Party (PLP) strives to bring to these and all workers’ struggles around the world, workers will be trapped in a revolving door of dead-end reforms that bring with them more economic crises and swindles from liberal politicians.

Saudi and Iranian rivalry: U.S empire in peril

On September 14, Saudi Arabia’s state-owned Abqaiq and Khurais oil processing plants were attacked by drone and missile strikes of unconfirmed origin, disrupting five percent of global oil production and pushing rival imperialists closer to World War III. The latest conflict in the Middle East demonstrates the deteriorating influence of a fractured U.S. ruling class. It also reminds us how the fight over resources among the world’s competing capitalists leads to mass murder and displacement of workers.
