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!

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.

As Oil Wars Spread, Biggest Terrorists: U.S. Rulers

Since Inauguration Day, the Obama regime has ruthlessly enforced working-class “sacrifices” to protect embattled U.S. capitalists. Workers — suffering Depression-level job, wage and service cuts — bear the multi-trillion-dollar costs of Obama & Co.’s bank bailouts and ever-expanding Middle East energy wars. And on these killing fields, working-class soldiers and civilians unwillingly pay with their lives as Team Obama defends the profits of oil giants like Exxon Mobil, as well as U.S. rulers’ attempt to control energy supplies and pipeline routes to maintain their shaky global supremacy.

Fight Racist Unemployment: Bosses Profit on Workers’ Backs

With all the rosy hoopla coming from Wall Street and the Obama administration about the economy “turning around” and unemployment “dipping” to 10% in November, the real picture belies their hot air. As reported by the website which “shadows” government statistics, a “double-dip” recession is in place. “What lies ahead should be a renewed plunge in economic activity.”

Student Rally Links Racist Fare Fraud to War, Bankers’ Bailout

BROOKLYN, NY, December 21 — As soon as students at our school heard about the rally against Metrocard cuts, they got together to figure out plans to mobilize our friends and teachers. We were furious about the MTA’s latest proposal to cut free and reduced-fare student Metrocards for all NYC students in order to balance their budget. This racist attack against the overwhelmingly black and Latino school population would cost families about $1,000 a year for each child when one-in-three black workers and one-in-four Latino workers are unemployed. Half-a-million students use free or half-fare Metrocards to get to school.

Hyatt’s ‘Hospitality’: Racist Firings Spur Class War

BOSTON, MA, November 11 — “Hyatt says lay off, We get pissed off” chanted faculty and students from Roxbury Community College (RCC) who, along with fired Hyatt workers held a spirited picket line at the Hyatt Hotel at Logan airport. The rally was called to protest the racist firing of the entire housekeeping staff, 90% Latinas, from the three Hyatt hotels in Boston. Through signs, speakers, and chants, we connected the firing of Hyatt housekeepers and cutbacks at community colleges to the crisis of capitalism.

Airport Contract Fight Exposes Need for Revolution, Not Reform

MIDWEST AIRPORT, December 30 — The class struggle of airport and metro-area cleaners is getting sharper as the bosses attempt to stall and delay over union contract negotiations. The SEIU bargaining committee, composed of rank-and-file janitors, confronted the cleaning bosses’ high-priced lawyer in an angry exchange. Metro-cleaning bosses are keeping new cleaners on probation for an illegal extra 60 days. This is anti-working-class and nothing but racist super-exploitation which has many workers ready to strike if need be!

Promoting PLP’s Politics at MLA Convention

PHILADELPHIA, January 2 — PLP members and friends were active at the recent Modern Language Association (MLA) convention through our participation with friends in the Radical Caucus (RC). In two RC-sponsored panels we advocated the need for revolution rather than reliance on reform, no matter how militant. In one panel, in fact, a presentation was made specifically on “teaching revolution.”

Newark Rally: ‘Bush, Obama — Different Name, Same Game!’

NEWARK, NJ, January 4 — On the cold, rainy, dark evening after Obama announced his expansion of the war in Afghanistan, 50 people, including PLP members, joined in a rally outside the Gateway Center offices of New Jersey Senators Lautenberg and Menendez. In spite of the lousy weather, we could have distributed hundreds more leaflets than we had. The support we received from commuters returning from New York City and drivers passing by was amazing. And people were eager to join in our chants, including “Bush, Obama. Different name, same game,” “Soldiers, sailors and marines. Resist the bloody war machine,” and “Lautenberg, Menendez. Stop the funding for the killing.”

Youth Leadership Takes Hold at Salvador PLP Communist Schools

EL SALVADOR, January 2 — “There will always be the exploited until we eliminate the exploiters,” declared a worker at one of two communist political schools comprising 35 workers, students and farmworkers. These end-of-the-year gatherings were filled with political education, revolutionary solidarity and splendid dinners.
