The people of the Donbass are fighting a heroic antifascist struggle, and we stand in solidarity with them, as we remember the 70th anniversary of the Soviet people's heroic victory over German Fascism on 9 May 1945.
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.
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
"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!"
V I Lenin (What are our ministers thinking about?)
What is communism? What is the record of the communist movement in power? Is communism relavant 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.
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!
