WHAT DISTINGUISHES OUR PARTY: The political continuity which goes from Marx to Lenin, to the foundation of the Communist Party of Italy (Livorno, 1921); the struggle of the Communist Left against the degeneration of the Communist International, against the theory of „socialism in one country“, against the Stalinist counter-revolution; the rejection of the Popular Fronts and the Resistance Blocs; the difficult task of restoring the revolutionary doctrine and organization in close interrelationship with the working class, against all personal and electoral politics.

A hundred years after the foundation in Leghorn of the Communist Party of Italy. A Section of the Communist International.

The war for revolution and a class dictatorship continues without respite. Work on organizing the party of the international communist revolution proceeds incessantly

Of that far-off and fatal January 1921 we shall read, see, hear accounts, reconstructions, judgements, every shade of opinion of every sort.  They all share the unconfessed and unconfessable fear that on the scenario of contemporary and future events, we may see the reappearance of the economic, social and political conditions that made it necessary to organize our class into that Party of the World Communist Revolution, of which the party founded in Leghorn was the Italian section.

Black anger makes the crumbling pillars of bourgeois and democratic “civilization” tremble

  • Published: Thursday, 30 July 2020 20:37

Between 11 and 16 August 1965, an authentic rebellion took place in the black ghetto of Watts in Los Angeles, California. The Afro-American population, already exasperated by widespread poverty and growing unemployment, by constant repression and miserable living conditions, rose up against the umpteenth case of police brutality.  By the end of the revolt 34 deaths were counted, all caused by the forces of "law and order" and the National Guard.  It was one of the most serious episodes, after the one in Harlem in 1943 and before those following the savage beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles in 1992. Our party immediately published the following article, which we dedicate to all those proletarians who came out onto the streets and into squares throughout the United States to demonstrate their anger and will to fight back after the murder of George Floyd on 25 May last.

The “yellow vests”: a people’s revolt short of breath, a long wave of people’s illusion

  • Published: Wednesday, 06 February 2019 18:10

“Of all the classes that stand face to face with the bourgeoisie today, the proletariat alone is a really revolutionary class. The other classes decay and finally disappear in the face of Modern Industry; the proletariat is its special and essential product. The lower middle class, the small manufacturer, the shopkeeper, the artisan, the peasant, all these fight against the bourgeoisie, to save from extinction their existence as fractions of the middle class. They are therefore not revolutionary, but conservative. Nay more, they are reactionary, for they try to roll back the wheel of history. If by chance, they are revolutionary, they are only so in view of their impending transfer into the proletariat; they thus defend not their present, but their future interests, they desert their own standpoint to place themselves at that of the proletariat”.

Today. Great surprise has been caused by the so-called “gilets jaunes movement” (the yellow vests), arising in France in mid November, apparently out of nothing, and, reaching its peak at the beginning of December, subsequently losing momentum and potential for mobilization after the Government concessions of 10 December.

Solidarity with the Venezuelan proletariat against all patriotic and nationalist temptations

  • Published: Wednesday, 06 February 2019 18:12

We communists are not indifferent towards the events in Venezuela, just as we are not indifferent to the social and political effects of the capitalist economy’s structural crisis, which drags on and becomes more and more profound, upsetting bourgeois alliances and alignments and aggravating the living and working conditions of the proletariat all over the world.

But our point of reference is and remains precisely that – the international proletariat, and its immediate and future interests. This is why we vigorously express our active solidarity with the Venezuelan proletarians, under attack from all quarters: by US imperialism, by the national bourgeoisie in all its various disguises (“régime” and “opposition”), by European imperialisms, as well as Chinese, Russian, and Turkish – all so many vultures hovering overhead.

The Ghost of the European Unity

  • Published: Friday, 19 October 2018 18:51

Imperialist dynamics and the Europeanist Illusion

In the post-second-world-war period, the weakness of Europe’s defeated or devastated ruling classes demanded the reconstruction of their economic, political and military apparatus.  The USA directed this reconstruction, which was warmly welcomed by the bourgeoisie in the defeated countries as the premise for renewed capitalist accumulation.  The Marshall Plan allowed national reconstruction to be launched, once the defeated had been obliged to set up an indefinable artefact called “Europe”.  In any event, it would be the “grande bourgeoisie” to install the project for “economic integration”and put it into practice in the defence of diverse national interests. The prospect of a “politically united” Europe was, instead, an illusion of the “petite bourgeoisie” in big European states, providing the “little ideals” and driven by the need for them to be widely involved in the process of capitalist development.
