May 1st: Day of the international struggle against capitalism, for socialism-communism.



We honour Labour Day, the dead workers of Chicago in 1886, all the unyielding fighters of the class struggle that even gave their lives for the rights of their class, for the abolition of the exploitation of man by man, for socialism-communism. We draw strength from the historical experience by organizing the contemporary struggles of the working class, its alliance with the other popular strata, against the attack of the capital, the anti-popular measures of the EU and its governments, against imperialist interventions and the EU-US-NATO wars, in order to meet contemporary needs.
The contradictions of capitalism are sharpening and apparent to all: continuous wars, refugees, crises, mass unemployment, exploitation, inequality, workers’ impoverishment and environmental pollution.
The capital tries to conceal the real causes that generate this reality in order to divert the correct popular indignation towards directions that perpetuate capitalism, hiding the fact that the impoverishment of the working masses internationally and the growing inequalities between rich and poor, as well as between countries with different levels of development, are the result of the division of society into classes and of the process of capitalist accumulation.
The injustice that characterizes capitalism as a system based on exploitation is endeavoured to be justified as a result of the economic conjuncture or as a defect in the management of the system, whereas, instead, it is a characteristic intrinsic to capitalism itself, both in crisis and in its economic recovery phase.
The capital also uses nationalism - racism as a weapon of "mass distraction". Only the imperialist bourgeoisie benefits from this, thus hiding its enormous responsibilities for wars and the looting of entire countries. The refugees and immigrants who flee from their countries because of imperialist wars, as well as from the imperialist peace which comprises exploitation, diseases and misery, contribute to widening the "reserve army of labour " that capital uses to further reduce everyone's wages.
On May 1st, we reiterate once again the solidarity of the communists and the labour movement with immigrant proletarians. The class enemy is not an immigrant, but the capitalist. It is the capitalist who fires, who reduces wages, who imposes inhuman working conditions. The way out can only be found in class unity and equality of rights for all workers, both native and immigrants.
We denounce the opportunism of social-democracy, of the collaborationist trade unionists and their compromised leadership, who act to defuse the people’s discontent and only help to guarantee the survival of a dying system. The bourgeoisie tries to neutralize the popular discontent also by suppressing social protest and by channelling it to movements that, regardless of their "right" and "left" connotation, serve the interests of the capital, its governments and its international imperialist alliances, such as the EU and NATO.
For example, the bourgeoisie is trying to divert the just and widespread indignation against the ecological devastation and the damage to the health of workers towards neo-ecological movements that criminalize the individual consumer instead of the big monopolies, omitting to denounce that what threatens the very survival of the planet is the exploitation of natural resources by capitalist monopolies in search for profit maximization and imperialist wars. Hope lies in the class struggle, in the organization and regroupment of the workers' movement.
This year, May 1st coincides with the beginning of the European election campaign. The peoples know from their experience that the EU is not improving, it can only be worse, more anti-popular and reactionary. This is why we must break the chains that hold us, prisoner, we must intensify the struggle against the EU and NATO, the political-military institutions of European imperialism that guarantee the domination of capital to the detriment of workers and peoples.
The Europe of workers and peoples cannot arise by this European Union that perpetuates capitalist oppression and imperialist aggression.
We must concentrate our action against the EU and NATO, starting from this May 1st, a day from which a new season of proletarian struggles must start for the claiming of labour rights, the overthrow of capitalism, for socialism-communism.
On the occasion of this May 1st the Communists greet and express internationalist solidarity with the workers of Europe and all over the world, who are everywhere engaged in the struggle for their rights and their emancipation from the shackles of the capitalist system.
Long live May 1st!
Proletarians of the world, unite!

Joint Statement of Communist and Workers’ Parties: Solidarity with the people of Sudan


Solidarity with the people of Sudan
The Communist and Workers’ Parties undersigning this statement condemn the continued repression of peaceful protesters in Sudan since 19th December 2018.
They note that a national state of emergency was declared in Sudan on 22 February by president Omar al-Bashir amidst the dictatorial regime’s continued attempts to suppress the mass popular protests.
This development has taken place against the backdrop of attempts by US imperialism and its reactionary allies in the region to find a way to rescue the regime through certain superficial changes in the composition of the government. All these conspiracies are an expression of political panic among imperialist and reactionary forces that fear the eventual victory of the Sudanese people and their aspirations for freedom, democracy, peace and social justice.
The democratic opposition forces in Sudan have strongly condemned these new repressive measures and called for continued mass and popular protests to achieve the goals of the Sudanese people. The Sudanese Communist Party has called for a strengthening in the resolve and unity of the opposition, towards preparing for the declaration of a general strike and subsequent campaign of civil disobedience.
In response to the declaration of the national state of emergency, despite the escalating repression meted out by the regime’s security forces, mass popular demonstrations have taken place in Khartoum and the main cities as well as towns all over Sudan. About 3000 people, among them over 200 women activists, are still languishing in the prisons and detention centres of the regime under harsh and inhumane conditions. They include 16 members of the Central Committee of the Sudanese Communist Party as well as scores of its cadres and members. Among the detainees are Comrade Mohamed Mokhtar al-Khatib, the political secretary of the party, and members of the leadership of the party: Masoud Al Hassan, Sidig Yousif, Ali Saeed, Hanadi Fadl, Faiza Nugud, Salih Mahmoud, Amal Gabralla, Mohamed Aburas, Hashim Mirghani, Osama Hassan, Seid Ahmed Al Khatib and Mokhtar Mahmoud.
The Communist and Workers’ Parties strongly condemn the bloody repression by the dictatorial regime and its security forces and support the just demands of the Sudanese people and their peaceful protest movement.
The Communist and Workers’ Parties demand the immediate and unconditional release of Comrade Mohamed Mokhtar al-Khatib and all the political detainees in Sudan.

CP of Greece, We denounce the imperialist intervention in Venezuela. Solidarity with the Venezuelan People!


We, Communist and Workers Party of the world, decisively denounce the imperialist plans, the undermining tactics and the menaces unleashed by the USA, the EU and their allied governments in Latin America, aiming at overthrowing the legally elected President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro; at subjugating the people of the country into their imperialist interests; and at looting the country’s wealth-producing resources.
After the failed provocation prepared by the USA using the imperialists’ puppet Guaidó on February 23rd in the Colombian borders, under the pretext of “humanitarian aid”, new scenarios are promoted for a coup or even an imperialist military attack, while simultaneously they continue the effort to organize more provocations that will give a pretext for the escalation of the intervention.
We strongly condemn every coup and imperialist military attack scenario of the USA and of their allies!
We decisively state that they will find against them not only the people of Venezuela but also the Communist and Workers Parties, the working class’ and people’s movement all around the world!
We vehemently condemn the statements of John Bolton, National Security Advisor of the USA, according to which the government of the USA follows the Monroe Doctrine that considers the whole of Latin America as their exclusive zone of interest.
Latin America belongs to its peoples!
Loyal to the principles of Proletarian Internationalism we express our solidarity with the people of Venezuela; only the people of Venezuela have the capacity to decide on the internal affairs of its country. We express our solidarity with the Communist Party of Venezuela, the Communist Youth of Venezuela and other Venezuelan anti-imperialist forces that struggle under difficult conditions to defend the people’s interests.
Down with Imperialism!
People Will Prevail!

Malta supporting the US attempt at a Coup in Venezuela

Press Release

It is really shameful that the Maltese Government has joined forces with other EU Governments who are backing the Trump administration in its’ efforts to overthrow the legitimate Government of Venezuela and install a dictator against the will of the majority of the people of Venezuela.
Nicholas Maduro was elected by 67.8% of the votes cast, in an election were 6 other opposition parties participated, and two opposition parties boycotted this election held last May. The Economic situation in Venezuela is the direct result of US and EU sanctions and of the confiscation of Venezuela’s money by the US and European Banks. The Bank of England alone confiscated 2.1 Billion Sterling in gold.
Foreign observers including those coming from the United States stated afterward that the elections were fair, even the other Six opposition Parties that had participated, none of them protested against the results obtained. The call by the EU for fresh elections is not justified. This call exposes the EU for what it really is, another imperialist organization.

This attitude taken by the Maltese Government puts the Prime Minister is a contradictory position. One one hand the Prime Minister had supported the leader of opposition Adrian Delia because he was democratically elected, and the other his is supporting Juan Guaido proclaimed himself interim president without actually being elected. In other words, both the EU and the Maltese Government are supporting a dictator, and coup d’etat in Venezuela as the United Nations recognize Nicholas Maduro and his Government as the legitimate President and Government of Venezuela.

Statement of the Secretariat of the Initiative of Communist and Workers' Parties of Europe in solidarity with Venezuelan people and the CP of Venezuela


The Secretariat of the Initiative condemns the coup d'etat of the USA, their allied governments and of the Organization of American States (OAS) for the overthrow of the elected President Nicolas Maduro and for the support of the leader of the reactionary forces Juan Guaidó, who proclaimed himself president of the country with their support.
This coup d'etat is a continuation of the planned long-term campaign of destabilization of the country to promote the imperialist designs in the Latin America region and to overthrow governments that are not likable to the USA-NATO and the EU, with the latter intervening in the domestic affairs of Venezuela, supporting the reactionary forces and participating the scheme to overthrow the elected government.
Once again it is reaffirmed that the imperialist forces not only do not respect the rights and sovereignty of the peoples but also tread on every right, organize slanderous campaigns and all kinds of attacks in order to impose their wills, their interests.
We express our internationalist solidarity with the working class and the people of Venezuela and we stand by their side in their struggle against the imperialist plans in their country and in the region. We support with all our forces the CP of Venezuela and its struggle in favor of the rights and interests of the workers of the country, to abolish capitalist exploitation, for Socialism.
