 Progressive Labor Party on Race & Racism

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!

Arrested while working: racist police terror everywhere

INDIANA, April 28—Members of the Progressive Labor Party in Indiana have been connecting with community members through collective fight back against deportations, arrests, and racist police murders.
On Tuesday, April 24, eight workers were arrested by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) while doing construction work on an apartment complex in Highland, Indiana. This vicious attack subjects workers and their families to the psychological terror that the police continue to inflict on working class communities.

LA: Anti-imperialist protesters decry war in Syria

LOS ANGELES— When the U.S. bosses expanded the Middle East war by targeting Syria’s ruling class and moving the U.S. into a more direct military conflict with  Russian bosses, 3 students from the local health university showed up on a day’s notice to join the PLP contingent  marching against the war downtown. Unlike the previous anti-gun violence march or Women’s March which drew thousands of unaffiliated workers, most workers who joined ANSWER Coalition’s demonstration were with revisionist groups.
A small group of nationalist Syrian workers supported the Syrian ruling class, carrying a Syrian flag and large Assad posters. Clearly, the Democratic Party and their sellout unions who are struggling to build  patriotism for sending ground troops into the Middle East and elsewhere are not going to spend  millions to supporting the anti-war movement like they have with the previous marches mentioned.

Volatile imperialist order fosters fascism worldwide

As Progressive Labor Party mobilizes and marches for communism in over 20 countries across the globe on May Day, capitalism is moving headlong into crisis. In a time of global economic turbulence, extreme inequality, and intensifying inter-imperialist conflict, the international system that established U.S. dominance and governing norms after the Second World War is beginning to implode. Richard Haass, president of the main-wing U.S. bosses’ leading think tank, the Council on Foreign Relations, is lamenting “the fading liberal world order” (cfr.org, 3/21).

MAY DAY—wORKERS’ dAY. fight for communism

Happy May Day to the international working class! May Day is the working class’s international holiday celebrated by tens of millions of workers worldwide. It’s a day when workers around the globe march for their common demands, signifying international working-class solidarity. It was born out of — and honors — the Chicago workers’ historic struggle for the eight-hour day on May 1, 1886. Many of those labor leaders not only fought for better working conditions, but also to end the capitalist system. The Progressive Labor Party (PLP) marches on May Day to celebrate workers everywhere who fought back and continue to fight back against the bosses’ exploitation.

MTA worker St. Clair killed by profit system

Capitalism kills off workers with racism, sexism and war. We are reminded of this when we discuss the destruction going on in Yemen, Haiti or Puerto Rico. However, capitalism also kills workers without the open viciousness of war, racism or sexism. Day after day it also kills workers based on class.

THE KLAN IN BLUE KILLS Saheed Vassell

Brooklyn, ny—Saheed Vassell was a 34 year old Black man widely known on the block where he was gunned down on April 4th by a New York Police Department (NYPD) hitsquad with no questions asked. This racist killing shows “community policing” as a liberal farce meant to cover up the true nature of the cops. Community policing is portrayed as helpful, friendly and in tune with the needs of the residents. In reality the cops shot and killed Saheed within seconds of arriving on the scene.
