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!

Rockefellers’ Oily Hands In Haitian ‘Relief’  

The private U.S. relief groups at work in Haiti are channeling sincere compassion towards imperialist goals. The U.S. arm of Doctors Without Borders, which the media keeps trumpeting as a worthy recipient of donations for Haitian aid, is headed by Richard Rockefeller, MD, another crown prince of U.S. imperialism. His father David, heir to the vast Standard Oil fortune (now Exxon Mobil, Chevron, and BP), ran both Chase Manhattan Bank (now JP Morgan Chase) and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) think-tank.

Developing Communist Leadership in Heat of Oaxaca Class Struggle  

OAXACA, MEXICO, January 13 — Last December, 37 comrades attended a communist school here. A broad discussion included an analysis, with examples, exposing the evils of capitalism, studying political economy, and stressed the urgency of continuing to build a base for communism. But, in a new dynamic, we formed work-groups to answer such questions as:

Why does poverty exist?

Why are there wars, and can they be avoided?

What is communism and how does it work?

Why do we need a party to build communism?

Why should we fight directly for communism, not for socialism?

Then each work-group reported on its understanding of these questio

Seizing Opportunity to Build PLP in Fight vs. Budget Cuts  

NEW YORK CITY, January 3 — The recent Obama Nobel Peace Prize award and widespread budget cuts have opened the door to build the Party at our school. Our goal as communists in PLP is to link the cuts to the bosses’ massive war budget for Afghanistan and Iraq, to expose the inter-imperialist wars and rivalries dominating the world and to expose the nature of the cuts as racist, an attack on the overwhelmingly black and Latino student population.

A PL teacher had already planned to teach a unit on Afghanistan as part of the World Literature curriculum. As soon as he heard that Obama was sending even more troops, he seized the opportunity to discuss it in the classroom.

Algeria: Wildcat General Strike Paralyzes Ports, Auto, Steel Plants  

ALGIERS, January 15 — A massive wildcat general strike of nearly 20,000 auto, steel, port and public health workers is in its twelth day and is spreading across Algeria, amid repeated pitched battles with thousands of cops and security forces. Workers are not only striking against their companies but also directly against the government, defying its ban on public rallies and demonstrations, stemming from a “state of emergency” declared in the early 1990s.

Strikers are demanding a wage hike, and in a political challe

‘Avatar’: Mysticism Masquerades As Militancy  

James Cameron’s new movie Avatar is on its way to becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time. In many ways, the content of the movie is secondary. In a capitalist society it is perfectly acceptable for someone to spend $500 million making a movie that will bring in many billions of dollars, while billions of workers suffer every day. The content of the movie is important, however. The movie clearly takes place in an advanced imperialist society. A precious natural resource called unobtanium has been discovered on Pandora where the Na’vi live and the U.S. Marines attack the Na’vi for the profit of a U.S. company. Replace the Na’vi with Iraqi and Afghan workers and unobtanium with oil and the movie would be about contemporary U.S. imperialism.

Bosses Use Calif. ‘Master Plan’ for Education to Prepare for War

They are open to see that its not just bad management. Capitalism and its inevitable imperialist wars are to blame. Many are questioning a system that cuts education, health care and jobs for wider imperialist war and bailing out banks.

Don't Blame "Mother Nature"; Capitalism Kills Thousands of Haitians

 

Our class brothers and sisters in Haiti need our help. However possible, workers here must try to send money, rescue and medical people and relief supplies, and anything else we can.

There was nothing natural about this carnage. Like Katrina, the Tsunami and a hundred other “natural” disasters we’ve witnessed, it’s capitalism — especially U.S. capitalism — that set up Haiti’s working class for nearly all the death and destruction accompanying this earthquake.
