    All men are created equal?
    We believe that all men are created equal – yet around the world today our brothers and sisters are in chains. Our souls cry out in anger and pain when we see slave markets re-born in Libya, in the 21st century. How has humanity arrived at this shameful and humiliating place?
    We believe that the colour of a person’s skin should have no more significance than the colour of their eyes. Yet the country we are born in, the economic position of our parents and the colour of our skin - events of accident, of chance - profoundly affect the life chances and life expectancy of all human beings on our planet today. How can this be? And how can we bring reality into accord with our cherished principles and beliefs?
    While demanding the abolition of this disgusting rebirth of chattel slavery, we are keenly aware that the majority of humanity’s population today are degraded and enslaved not in this direct manner, but by their wage-slavery, by impoverishment and immiseraion at the hands of capitalism, greedy for maximum profit regardless of the human and environmental cost.
    Libya today and yesterday
    So why has classical chattel-slavery re-emerged in Libya? One does not need a long memory to recall that in 2011, NATO waged a war of regime change, using a new model, since transported to wreak havoc in Syria.
    Today’s Libyan ‘Government of National Accord’ is, the poisoned fruit of that genocidal NATO campaign. The GNA is an imposed ‘Vichy’ comprador government. It does not represent and is not responsible to the Libyan people.
    As such, NATO bears direct responsibility for the composition and actions of its junior partners, up to and including, inter-alia, its ongoing campaigns of murder and rape in Libya to impose a backward social code, its terrorist outrages committed in Libya and elsewhere, (such as the Manchester Bombing in May 2017),  its involvement in trafficking displaced migrants who are drowned in their thousands trying to cross the Mediterranean to escape poverty in sub-Saharan Africa – and, as a profitable off-shoot of this, actual slave trading.
    NATO and the Islamists; an unholy alliance
    Without NATO arms, logistical support and air-power, there is no way this rag-tag bunch of feudal mercenaries – now engaged in slave trading – could ever have toppled the progressive, secular and popular government led by Muammar Gaddafi. During the 2011 war, literally millions of Libyan citizens demonstrated to show their support for their government, cheering on Gaddafi, who defied the aerial bombardment to salute the crowds from the back of a jeep.
    Imperialism seeks domination, not democracy
    USA’s first ‘African-American’ president, Barak Hussein Obama oversaw the Libyan coup, providing a sober and credible figurehead for what was in fact a barbarous, anti-democratic, colonial war waged against a small, peaceful and prosperous North-African country. We wonder if Trump could have pulled it off with such aplomb?
    Libya has huge oil reserves and, on the basis of its previous export of oil, it had significant financial reserves amounting to hundreds of billions of dollars – the Libyan sovereign wealth funds – which were seized by international capitalists in the US and Europe as part of its financial war. The plunder of Libyan oil and Libyan gold were NATOs true goals.
    War Propaganda
    None of these realities, well known to us at the time, were reflected in our national media. Their coverage (including from our beloved ‘impartial & objective’ BBC) that accompanied NATOs Libyan genocide was a one-sided campaign of war-mongering lies that would have made Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, blush.
    Then US secretary of state Hillary Clinton cackled with glee when her rats overran Sirte, lynched black Africans and finally murdered and mutilated the President himself, screeching triumphantly on live national TV “We came, we saw, he died!”

    We believe that AFRICAN LIVES MATTER: No to Slave Trading; No to NATO PLUNDER! END NATO IMPERIALISM!

  • CPGB-ML Play all

    A short word about our organisation

    The CPGB-ML was set up in July 2004 by a group of committed communists who had either been expelled or had resigned from the Socialist Labour Party. It was set up in recognition of the fact that there was no existing party in Britain that carried a consistently Marxist-Leninist, anti-imperialist, anti-social democratic political line. It was, and is, the unshakable conviction of these comrades that only such a party can develop into a genuine working-class vanguard.

    More information on the setting up of the CPGB-ML can be found in the first issue of our journal, Proletarian, in particular the article Why the CPGB-ML?

    As time has gone on, our belief that we are truly different from all the other parties calling themselves socialist and communist in Britain has only deepened. In 2011, there was clear blue water between our position and that of every other party on ALL the important questions: on the crisis, its causes and solutions; on Libya and Col Gaddafi; on Syria and President Bashar al-Assad; on the youth uprisings; on Korea and Comrade Kim Jong Il.

    What differentiates us is a consistent revolutionary analysis and a thoroughly scientific approach to all aspects of our work. We are small, but we are growing. We welcome anyone who is serious and committed to working for a socialist future.

  • Working Class History Play all

    The bourgeoisie turns everything into a commodity, hence also the writing of history. It is part of its being, of its condition of existence, to falsify all goods; it falsified the writing of history. And the best-paid historiography is that which is best falsified for the purposes of the bourgeoisie

    Friedrich Engels.

    "Show everybody, then, that no power will succeed in depriving the workers of class consciousness! Without knowledge the workers are defenceless, with knowledge they are a force!"

  • Communism Play all

    What is communism? What is the record of the communist movement in power? Is communism relevant to workers and their struggles today?

    Who was Stalin ('man of steel')? What are the differences between Lenin ('man of iron') and Trotsky? Which has proven itself in practice and can aid the liberation of working people from their economic and political oppression?

    This selection of interviews and presentations seeks to answer these fundamental and important questions.

  • Syria, Libya, Palestine and the Middle East Play all

    Anglo-american imperialism, seeks domination, not democracy. Its bloody history of conquest, plunder and murderous genocidal war in the middle east is proof positive of this fact.

    From Iraq, to Palestine, Afghanistan to Syria, Iran to Egypt, Saudi to Syria, we have a duty to recognise and oppose the disgusting policies of interference pursued by our own ruling class and say: these are not in our interest and cannot be pursued in our name.

    An active policy of non-cooperation with imperialism's war crimes in the middle east and the wider world must be championed by any British party seeking to free the working class from its slavish subordination to the British imperial ruling class.

    Victory to the anti-imperialist forces of resistance in the middle east!
