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!

Undocumented Immigrant Strikers March Through France

JOIGNY, FRANCE, May 5 — Eighty-six undocumented immigrants arrived in this town in Burgundy today, as they pursue a one-month, 850-mile trek from Paris to Nice on the Mediterranean coast. The protest marchers aim to win support for the “legalization” of all undocumented immigrants. They all pay taxes or send their children to school in France.

The marchers left Paris on May Day. May Day was chosen “as a powerful symbol to say that undocumented workers are foreign slave laborers who are legally turned over to slave-trader bosses by the racist laws of the French government,” the National Coordination of Undocumented Immigrants said in a press statement.

Obama Uses Racist Arizona Law to Push Own Fascist Scheme

PHOENIX, May 2 — On May 1, hundreds of thousands of workers marched in many cities nation-wide — including thousands of students who walked out and marched in Arizona itself — to protest Arizona’s new racist anti-immigrant law and to demand a better life for themselves and their class brothers and sisters.

This law is among the most openly racist ones passed in recent years. It requires Arizona cops to demand immigration papers from anyone they “suspect” to be undocumented. This is an explicit call for cops to arrest anyone who “looks” Latino or has a Spanish accent or any other racist stereotype they might use.

Seattle Students, Campus Workers Picket vs. Budget Cuts

SEATTLE, May 3 — At 8:00 AM today, up to 250 campus workers and students conducted mass picket lines throughout the day to protest budget cuts and show our strength in the face of current contract negotiations for graduate students and the upcoming contract expiration for the custodians at our university here. The UAW union leadership unilaterally chose to extend the grad students contract rather than strike, as many rank-and-filers demanded.

History of May Day

May Day is the working class’s international holiday celebrated by tens of millions of workers worldwide. It was born out of — and honors — the Chicago workers’ historic struggle for the 8-hour day on May 1, 1886, launching a general strike that spread to 350,000 workers across the country. It’s a day when workers around the globe march for their common demands, signifying international working-class solidarity.

It’s All About Oil, Profits: Widening Wars Prelude to Nuke Showdown

Wars over access to resources, markets and workers’ labor result inevitably from capitalism’s dog-eat-dog competition and kill workers by the millions. Attacking this mass murder for profit is essential to the long struggle towards communist revolution our Party marks on May Day. May Day 2010 finds U.S. capitalists, led by Obama, shedding workers’ blood openly in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan as they try to shore up a faltering worldwide empire largely based on control of energy. U.S. rulers, meanwhile, must soon confront Iran and have longer-term plans for facing off against China and Russia.

SF Bay Area’s Multi-Racial May Day Celebration

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, April 26 — On April 24, this area had a very successful May Day celebration, especially because PLP’s future is growing from our hands-on activities. We have long-term ties with young adults, family groups and on-the-job fight-backs. This provides the potential for Party growth from a growing circle of people influenced by PLP’s activities and ideas.
