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!

Mass Red Leadership Needed at DC Metro

Washington, DC, April 11—The management of the Metro transit system in the Washington, DC region, backed by the political leaders of the region, have launched a determined attack on transit workers and riders. It’s the biggest attack on the workers in over 30 years.
Workers are looking for leadership that is prepared to shut down the city until workers’ needs are met, but, unfortunately, the current union leadership is following a losing strategy to resist these attacks. Workers and riders who are serious about fighting back must develop an alternative, mass, communist, leadership that is willing to fight by any means necessary to defend our interests.

LA: Campaign Demands Prosecution of KKKop Clifford Proctor for Murder

Los Angeles—A group of Progressive Labor Party communists, friends from the congregation, and I went to the Culver City Meets Venice CicLAvia bike route to collect signatures. They were petitioning to the Black District Attorney Jackie Lacey, demanding Lacey prosecute Clifford Proctor, the cop who shot un-housed young Black man Brendon Glenn in the back May 5, 2015.
Ever since, a multiracial group has been organizing marches to demand prosecution of Proctor. We marched on Venice Beach and Koreatown. We had also seized control of a town hall put by Lacey last year.

Russia-U.S. Imperialist Conflict Points Toward War

Today’s U.S.-Russia relations are “worse” than they were after World War I, at the “lowest possible point in history,” a Russian official says (ABC News, 4/2). But as this inter-imperialist rivalry continues to escalate, and global war looms ever closer, the U.S. ruling class is in disarray.

From Flint to NYC Fight Racist Lead Crisis in Schools

BROOKLYN, NY, April 5—Once again, racist education bosses at the Department of Education (DOE) are showing their disregard for and neglect of Black and Latin working class children. In February, it was found that the water at more than half of all New York City public schools had lead present—an element so toxic to humans that there is no “safe” amount of it (WNYC News, 3/30). In some NYC schools, the levels are higher than were in Flint, Michigan at the height of the lead crisis there.
This recent round of testing is not the first, but previous testing was done after water was flushed through the systems, effectively making the test results inaccurate. It’s hard to know how long youth and education workers have been exposed to this poison. The DOE’s response to this crisis has been unacceptable and racist.

‘Act for America, KKK, RACIST Nazis Go Away!’

TEXAS, March 23—A crowd of 100 protested the country’s largest anti-Muslim hate group, American Congress for Truth (A.C.T. for America), who was holding a panel at a church to discuss the prevention of Mosques from being built in the U.S.
Progressive Labor Party organized a small but highly important contingent including a friend to influence the passive and nationalist message of the liberal organizers. PLP distributed leaflets, which analyzed how necessary racism is for the bosses in maintaining racial divisions among the working class and calling for fight back with on the job organizing as the main strategy for fighting anti-Muslim racism.

Teachers Rage Against Bosses’ Control

NEW YORK CITY, April 1—Our high school is getting a crash course in worker’s power and class-consciousness. The school bosses run the science department in the way that best suit ruling-class need. The students are heavily tracked to get into the elite courses, effectively dividing the future working class. A few teachers are given the least-performing students with the low ratings that accompany them. Then, they are served a heaping helping of abuse from the science Assistant Principal who regularly plays Christian music in her office while displaying a crucifix.

No Free Speech for ‘Bell Curve’ Racist Charles Murray

HARLEM, April 1—Progressive Labor Party salutes the brave students and staff across U.S. college campuses who protested the presence of racist Charles Murray. From Middlebury, Duke, Columbia, New York University, to Notre Dame and Villanova University, they have upheld that there should be no free speech for racists!
Charles Murray, best known for the pseudoscientist racist book The Bell Curve, is touring college campuses on the premise of promoting his new equally racist book Coming Apart. The book has gained increased attention since Donald Trumps’ election. The revival of Murray is no surprise; when overt racist politics are unapologetic fought for in the highest spheres of government, that legitimacy trickles out to colleges and all other institutions. Legitimatizing  “scientific” racist ideas set the groundwork for intensifying racist actions. When they’re allowed to speak, they become emboldened. When they are emboldened, they grow. And when they grow, they put their words into actions—terrorizing and killing Black, Latin, Muslim, immigrant workers and youth.

Bosses’ Divisions Play Out in Healthcare

The fight over repealing Obamacare exposes the growing infighting in the ruling class. Different factions are building political movements as they vie for power they try to leverage their movement against opposing groups of capitalists. The Tea party capitalists led by the Koch Brothers were able to mobilize the Freedom Caucus politicians to send a message that the ruling class has to take them into account.
The infighting is sharpening because the current situation of the U.S. bosses is extremely unstable and there are big fights coming as the bosses sort out their differences.
The differences that are playing out over health care range from the Freedom Caucus wanting to do away with virtually all government health care to the Bernie sanders/ Keith Ellison democrats fronting for the bosses who want to give more crumbs in the form of expanding Medicaid as big wars loom on the horizon.
The factions are somewhat fluid but here is an effort to give a description of the various factions.

Students Debate Politics in Growing Sanctuary Struggle

QUEENS, NY, April 2—Following Trump’s election, LaGuardia Community College students, faculty, and staff began mobilizing to begin a Sanctuary movement. The Trump administration is increasing its’ racist and sexist attacks on the working class. They are bringing us ever closer to world war. We have to increase our efforts to organize a multiracial working class to fight back. A sanctuary movement is a good start. Let’s also make it a step on the road to a world run by the working class, communism.

Workers in Haiti Need Reforestation and Revolution

NEW YORK CITY, April 5—The pianist hit the ivory and ebony keys. The singer used her voice, and the Haitian and church communities gathered together let out a whoop of excitement during our sixth annual fundraiser to benefit grassroots work in Haiti.  120 people attended on a miserably rainy evening in a church basement to raise funds for reforestation projects in Southeast Haiti.
