Progressive Labor Party on Race & Racism



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!

Capitalism in Crisis! Colombia prepares for fascism

COLOMBIA, October 10—Ivan Duque, the representative of the interests of US imperialism, landowners and big capital, became the president of Colombia. In his development plan he wants to impose a package of harmful reforms against workers, ordered by theOrganisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and backed by the bosses’ business agenda.
They include health, economic, and tax reforms, reducing taxes to big capitalists and increasing taxes on the products of the family basket, dismantling all the subsidies to the humble people, reforming the labor code, increasing the retirement age and permitting wages below the minimum. This will end the little job stability and the achievements we made with fight, sweat and blood.
They will dismiss teachers and close schools privatizing education to guarantee the application of these measures. They will not hesitate to continue applying police brutality and state terrorism through paramilitary groups and anti-restitution armies, criminalizing social protests, killing more than 300 social leaders and anyone who opposes them.
Electoral politics=support for class for enemies
This reactionary pol was elected in the last election with 10,365,000 votes won using a nationalist campaign of slander, threats, falsehoods, corruption and vote buying misinformation with anticommunist warmongering propaganda, driven by the media RCN and Caracol. This was noticed in the consciousness of many proletarians who, with their political and ideological ignorance, end up supporting their class enemies.
Gustavo Petro pacifist candidate of Social Democracy, got 8,029,000 votes, appeared to be a good potential for supporters who want to change their lives and are tired of paramilitary terrorism and the right-wing dictatorship. Unfortunately they believe in the bosses’ electoral promises that sound good in  theory, but in practice are set against our needs defending private capitalist property, and wage slavery.
Communism, the only solution
The bourgeois class takes advantage of the setbacks, and corruption of left-wing candidates, turning them into a disaster for the proletariat making these policies lose credibility in our class, imperialism will not let this system of new socialisms practiced in Venezuela, Brazil and Nicaragua prosper. Even though they demoralize the struggle of the workers.
These warmongering bosses think that their failed bourgeois democracy and fascist terror will be able to stop the unity of the working class, but they are wrong, because many proletarians in the world are uniting in the construction of an international communist movement to put an end to oppression and capitalist exploitation.
Our party PLP is led by rural and urban workers and students that struggle to build communist consciousness with a long-term revolutionary work style to create a communist society without bosses or profits, without racism or politicians introducing revolutionary consciousness and fighting the lying influence of the bourgeoisie.
With our revolutionary program we are doing mass work educating the masses in the ideas of collectivity and proletarian internationalism, only with the strengthening of the international PLP our communist party, can we get out of this swamp of capitalist electoral fraud, crushing these fascists and defeating the ruling class with the communist revolution.
