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.

Sunday, January 27, 2019


We, the participants in the protest against the US  intervention in Venezuela organized by ALBA Malta North Africa in front of  the court of justice in Valletta, Malta, deplore strongly attempts of  international imperialism to impose its hegemony on free working people, which reject the control of  international capitalism on  the their resources, announce the following: 
I- / We declare our unlimited solidarity with the people of Venezuela and their government under the leadership of Nicolas Maduro the legitimate President of Venezuela. 
II / We condemn the imperialist intervention in Venezuela's internal affairs under the leadership of the United States of America and its attempts to stand against the will of the working class and their free choice.
 III / We appeal to the progressive international community and its freedom loving powers to stand with President Maduro in support of the principles of democracy and people’s national sovereignty and self-determination.

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.

Declaration of the “Initiative of Communist and Workers’ Parties of Europe” for the strengthening of the workers’ - peoples’ struggle, for the European Elections of May 2019.

For an effective struggle against capitalist exploitation – For a Europe of the peoples, of socialism!
“Workers, self-employed in the cities and the countryside women, youth, pensioners, people with disabilities,
We, the Communist and Workers’ Parties that undersign this Declaration, call upon you on the occasion of the European Elections of 2019.
The EU, that functions as a European imperialist center was and continues being a tool for the European big capital to raise its profits and guarantee its domination; It is not serving, neither can ever serve the needs of the working people.
The expectations that the EU can be reformed in a “pro-people” direction have been proved to be futile. The expectations cultivated regarding a change towards the interest of the peoples through its supposed “democratization” are unfounded.
The workers of Europe, the popular strata can overthrow with their struggle today’s negative correlation of forces and meet the preconditions to open up the road for a Europe of socialism, that will guarantee the right to work, social rights, social security and income, the future of the working people.
Our Parties defend the interests of the working class, of the peoples, the rights of the youth and of the women from the popular strata.
Daily we struggle against the anti-people measures imposed by the bourgeois governments and by the EU, against the cutback of salaries and pensions, against the abolition of working rights, of social rights and social security, against the recycling of poverty and unemployment, against the commercialization of the Health-Care as well as of the Education, against the destruction of the environment, against the abolition of democratic rights and liberties. We demand measures against unemployment. We struggle altogether against the EU, that manipulates the peoples for the profiteering of the capitalists. We condemn anticommunism, repression, the limitation of sovereign rights.
Our Parties stand for:
§    Essential raises in salaries and pensions.
§    Public and free of charge Health-Care, Education.
§    The support of the struggle of the workers and of the unemployed for full-time and stable jobs.
§    Democratic rights in the workplaces, working- and social-rights, social-security.
§    The rights of the immigrant workers and the struggle against the causes that force peoples to abandon their countries.
§    Support of the small and medium-sized farmers.
§    The essential protection of the environment that is sacrificed for the profits of the big capital.
- We condemn the imperialist wars and interventions. We struggle in favor of peace, for the ousting of all US-NATO bases, against NATO, against the “Partnership for Peace” and the European army, against the PESCO and the participation in imperialist wars and interventions.
- We struggle against the frontal attack against the workers that is conducted either in conditions of capitalist crisis or in conditions of capitalist “development”.
- We align ourselves with the working-class and popular families that experience the dramatic consequences of the capitalist mode of production which is worsening profoundly the situation of the working class and of the popular strata.
We call upon the working class, the peoples:
§    To multiply their struggles against the European Union, against this union of capital, that hurts the peoples’ rights.
§    To strengthen their resistance to the capital’s attack, to the attacks of the parties that serve the capital’s interests, to strengthen their struggle for every popular problem.
§    To support with any suitable way the Communist and Workers’ Parties that condemn the EU in the battle of the European Elections, in May 2019, to weaken the parties that support the EU and its politics, that defend the “EU’s one-way road” of the capital and the supposed “democratization” of the EU.
This stance will strengthen the popular struggle in the whole Europe, the workers will struggle from better positions.
The EU does not serve the people, the EU serves the capitalist class, the interests of the monopolies, the concentration and centralization of capital. The EU enhances its features as an imperialist economic, political and military bloc contrary to the interests of the working class, of the popular strata.
The peoples have every interest to oppose to the operation of manipulation that the EU, its mechanisms, its governments and the parties that support this imperialist union are organizing.
They promise that the EU can guarantee for us the right to work, our working and social-security rights. They aim to convince the peoples that they can guarantee for them better living standards. It is a big lie.
Let us be reminded of the facts: in the EU there are 16.6 millions of unemployed; underemployment is continuously expanding reaching at 21% of the total or 43 million in numbers; those that live at or under the poverty line are more than 110 million; the future of the youth is undermined.
Fundamental rights of the working class and of the popular strata are being abolished. Mass lay-offs are fortified, the right to strike is getting limited, the age-limits for pensions are being raised and pensions are being cut down, private social-security is strengthened. The poor farmers are being destroyed with the implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy, the self-employed are being strangled by the competition of the big monopolies, inequality and discriminations at the expense of women are getting more intense. Migrants are persecuted while the politics that force them to abandon their home countries are strengthened.
Repression against the working-class and popular struggles is enhanced, new mechanisms of keeping tabs on are continuously created.
Political, financial and military cooperation with the Israeli state which is murdering the Palestinian people is upgraded.
The “Stability Pact”, the “Enhanced Economic Governance”, the “Banking Union” and other anti-peoples tools that are used have been incorporated in the anti-people toolbox of the EU, a new dramatic situation is being configured against the peoples.
The so-called “Global Strategy” of the EU, the “Common Security and Defense Policy” and PESCO constitute dangerous means for wars and interventions, serving imperialist aggressiveness.
The motor of capitalist unification is the interests of the European monopolies; the EU continuously develops towards a reactionary direction against the peoples.
Consequently, it is obvious that neither this inter-state capitalist union, neither the European Central Bank, nor the European Parliament can become pro-people, as the European parties that support the EU strategy are claiming.
Moreover, neither the EU can transform into a “formidable adversary” of NATO and the USA, as all kinds of supporters of the EU are arguing.
EU closely cooperates with NATO and the USA against the peoples, while the inter-imperialist competitions are manifested both inside the EU, both with the formation of groups of countries and with withdrawals, such as the Brexit.
The rivalries with the USA but also with Russia and China are intensified for the control of the markets.
The Communist and Workers’ Parties that undersign this Declaration:
-Underscore that the capital’s offensive is unitary and has to do with all the member-states of the EU, as well as with the rest of the states that are situated in the European continent and on these grounds it is necessary to strengthen the common struggle of the CP’s and of the peoples, to develop solidarity with the struggle of the workers across the whole of Europe and worldwide.
-Stress that there is another way of development for the peoples. The alternative of a different Europe emerges out of the workers’ struggle; a Europe of the prosperity of the peoples, of social progress, of democratic rights, of equal cooperation, of peace, of socialism.
-Believe in the right of each people to sovereignly choose its way of development, including the right to disengage itself from the EU, NATO and every other imperialist organization; to struggle for the socialist path of development.
This is the real answer against the organized effort of misleading the peoples.
 The peoples of Europe have no interest to follow the forces of cosmopolitanism of capital that are fanatic supporters of Euro-Atlantic. Likewise, they have no interest in the forces of nationalism, that also serve other class interests and not those of the peoples, using the measures of protectionism and “Euroscepticism” as their “vehicle”. Moreover, the people have nothing in common with the nationalist, fascist – Nazi parties that aim at utilizing the peoples’ agonies and problems to strengthen their forces as the sword-point of the dictatorship of the monopolies.
The support of the Communist and Workers’ Parties is the only real pro-people response, both to cosmopolitanism and to the so-called Euroscepticism. It constitutes the appropriate response to anticommunism and to the reactionary, anti-historical identification of communism with fascism, that is flesh of the flesh of the capitalist system.
We call upon the working class, the peoples of Europe to respond positively to this appeal of the Communist and Workers’ Parties.

Εach party in its own country organizes the struggle of the workers. The Communist and Workers’ Parties fight against the EU, comprehensively against the imperialist unions. Their reinforcement in every political battle contributes to the development of the struggles of the peoples:
We call on the peoples to weaken the forces that support the EU, in any way, and cultivate illusions that the EU can be fixed.
-NO to the EU of the monopolies, of capital and wars!
-Onward for a Europe of the prosperity of the peoples, of peace, social justice and democratic rights, of socialism!”
