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!

Ban BANNON—no free speech for fascists

Chicago, February 2—More than 70 anti-racist students and community members converged on the University of Chicago Booth School of Business in opposition to the school’s speaking invitation to white supremacist Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s former chief strategist.
Progressive Labor Party comrades were there to point out Bannon’s role in the context of rising fascism, and to offer revolutionary communist struggle as the only way to crush the capitalist system that creates racist scum like Bannon and his old boss.

75th Anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad

The bosses need to be afraid of the truth about the glorious achievements of the working class, particularly those achieved under communist leadership. One such achievement, which became the turning point of World War II, was the crushing defeat of the fascist German armies by the communist-led Soviet Red Army at Stalingrad on February 2, 1943.
As the 75th anniversary of this titanic battle – in which the Soviet Red Army, under communist leadership, smashed the supposedly “invincible” Nazi Wehrmacht (army), we can expect the capitalist media either to ignore this victory, or to slander and lie about it, to try to diminish its significance.

DC transit workers protest racist working conditions

WASHINGTON, DC, January 23—For two hours a multiracial group of 50 Metro transit workers and supporters, including members of Progressive Labor Party, held a picket line in front of Northern Bus Garage in Washington, DC.   With chants of “Workers united will never be defeated!” and “If we don’t get it, Shut It Down!,” Amalgamated Transit Union 689 workers upped the ante in their contract struggle. Capitalism leaves workers no choice but to strike, even to keep gains that we had already won in the past, let alone to win new improvements. Only a communist system run by the working class would remove that necessity by ridding the world of bosses who profit from our labor.

High school students energize West Wednesday rally

BALTIMORE, January 10—Activists and the family of Tyrone West continue to see through the bosses’ attempted bribes as they held the 233rd West Wednesday rally. Held once a week without fail, ever since the police execution of Tyrone in July 2013, this week’s rally got an infusion of enthusiasm and energy from five dynamic members of a high school club.
Tonight’s protest was held right outside Northeast District – the police station at which Tyrone’s killers worked. One member of the student club kicked off the rally with a powerful mix of singing and spoken word. Later, after a strong speech by Tyrone’s sister, Tawanda Jones, two other members of the club gave their own heartfelt speeches. And just after the rally, club members did a high-energy, impromptu freestyle rap, condemning injustice and upholding Tyrone’s name.

National security law exposes capitalist dictatorship

MEXICO—The approval of the national security law by both chambers of the legislature will enshrine the military’s role in law enforcement. This law, which was promoted by President Peña Nieto along with the consent of the Supreme Court, establishes the ability of the military to take over civilian law enforcement and exposes the power the capitalists have. It clearly shows we live in a dictatorship lead by oppressive billionaires who use democracy or fascism to guarantee the existence of their system of exploitation and profit.

CUNY’S teaching load reduction hurts students

City University of New York (CUNY) made an agreement with the Professional Staff Congress union (PSC) about reduction in teaching load for full-time faculty. While an improvement in the working conditions of full-time workers, it is also a prelude to increasing attacks on our job security. But most importantly, the workload reduction is a racist attack on the 270,000 students, who are mostly Black, Latin, Asian, and undocumented.
The reduction agreement reduces the annual teaching load by three credit hours, about one full course, across CUNY institutions. It will be phased in over three years, starting in the Fall of this year. This agreement will allegedly allow more free time for individual work with students, office hours, research, and scholarship.

No to Oakland A’s Stadium! Fight racist displacement

OAKLAND—The owners of the Oakland A’s (Major ­­­­­­­­­League Baseball team) had set their eyes on the Laney College site for a new stadium. To many, this was impending doom for the neighborhood and Laney Community College.
Many seemed resigned to hopelessness or dreamed about what they could gain from a stadium deal. A fiery group of staff & students from Laney Community College and community groups organized against the capitalists and their administrative stooges. After over six months of fightback, the college bosses were forced to halt plans with Oakland A’s.

U.S. & China prepare for new Korean War?

On February 9, when North and South Korea march side by side at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, the two countries’ symbolic unity will signify the erosion of U.S. imperialist dominance on the Korean Peninsula. The capitalist rulers of the U.S. are increasingly desperate to hold onto their deteriorating global top-dog status, a crisis complicated by an unreliable President Donald Trump and the bosses’ own disarray. With China growing in economic and military might, longtime U.S. allies like South Korea and Japan are now hedging their bets and looking to fend for themselves.
As the U.S. bosses debate how best to prepare for the next Korean War, the Progressive Labor Party and the international working class must organize to bury these war-makers once and for all.

Chicago Women's March: Only communism can eradicate sexism 

CHICAGO, January 21—For the second annual Women’s March, Progressive Labor Party (PLP) again rallied with workers from the region against the sexism perpetuated by the U.S. ruling class. Hundreds of thousands of anti-sexists showed up today to voice their anger against the sexist ideology, violence, and oppression.
Despite many of the marchers’ anger towards Trump and the system, the overall tone of the march was reformist and passive in nature. More voting was the call many marchers were yelling. Also, the overall the majority white crowd is reflective of the racism and sexism of the Democrats that organized it.
These wealthy liberal capitalists and their politicians have historically exploited and left out Black, Latin, Arab, Asian, and indigenous women workers from their “movement,” co-opting many genuine working-class struggles against sexism for their own imperialist and profit-based ends.
