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!

MARCH ON MAY DAY—FIGHT FOR COMMUNISM

Progressive Labor Party will once again march for communism and celebrate May Day, the historic international workers’ holiday. The capitalist bosses say communism is dead. The masses of workers about to demonstrate around the world—taking leadership from PLP—say otherwise. The lessons of history are clear. Only communism can smash the racist and sexist inequalities of the rotten profit system. Only communism can foster an egalitarian world run by and for workers, or develop a society based on workers’ needs.
Never has our task been more urgent.

Communists Trump Racism

NEW YORK CITY, April 14 — “Democrat, Republican, all the same, racist terror is the name of the game!” “The only solution is communist revolution!” Our multiracial contingent of workers and students, young and not so young, PL’ers and friends, led by women, brought the message to the New York State Republican Gala that any of the candidates, Democrat or Republican, are a dead-end for the working class. While each candidate has some differences in their particular agendas, all will maintain imperialist war and all the ills of capitalism. PLP brought the only real solution for the working class— only communism can meet the needs of our class sisters and brothers around the world.

Pakistan: Workers Fight Bosses’ Terrorism

The bosses and their police blame “unknown assailants,” with the underlying message that anyone who challenges the bosses will be killed. But the working class here cannot be stopped by horror or threats! The workers are daring and fearless, responding with anger to the situation of our class here and demonstrations are being organized throughout the country.

Hospital Workers Fight Sickening Conditions

BROOKLYN, April 18—Rank-and-file hospital workers are demanding their department boss stop the harassment and intimidation immediately! They’ve circulated a petition inside the hospital, demanding fired workers be reinstated. Although many signed, so far the hospital bosses have refused to act.
Dreadful Working Conditions
The bosses are pushing workers to the limit, firing and writing up workers in the transport department for “not working hard enough.” They want workers to over-compensate for shortages in staff and an increasing workload.

Douse the Bern

NEW YORK CITY, April 17—Twice in the last three days, Progressive Labor Party has rallied under the banner “elections can’t fix capitalism, fight for communism,” once in Manhattan where the Republican candidates like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump were speaking (see page 3) and again in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park opposing Bernie Sanders.
Today, a small but integrated group of female and male PL’ers followed up a May Day planning meeting by heading out to the Sanders rally and test our Party’s line that liberal bosses are the main danger to the working class. We demonstrated around our banner on the entry route into the staging area for Sanders’s speech. Many lingered around us and

Bosses Put Antiracist Educator on Trial

NEW YORK CITY, April 20—Dozens of former students, parents, colleagues and friends have been filling the hearing office every day at the “trial” of a New York City educator under attack on false charges, ones of which he’s already acquitted in criminal court! Despite that, the city bosses are trying to take away his licenses and keep him from ever serving our kids again. Even parents from the school he was removed from almost two years ago have come to support him and report back to others.

FIGHT RACIST VERIZON BOSSES

The 36,000 Verizon workers currently on strike are fighting for the entire international working class.   With mass racist unemployment the rule in the U.S., the Progressive Labor Party salutes such courage to strike! The working class will need a lot more of it to turn the coming period of crisis at home and widening imperialist wars overseas into their opposites- and make a revolution for workers’ power. 

Racist, Sexist Verizon Bosses Aren’t Broke!

The racist and sexist Verizon bosses make around $1.5 billion per MONTH right off the backs of the workers
