With the new communism, raise the flag of internationalism

With the new communism, raise the flag of internationalism

1 May 2019 statement by the CPIMLM


When the history of May First was being written in the streets of Chicago, USA in 1886, the workers of poverty and wage slavery were singing in the streets:


We want to overthrow everything

We are tired of toiling in vain

Only to survive

For the next day, without having even an hour to think

We are tired of all this


Since then, capitalism, dominating the whole world, has become the capitalist-imperialist system. A small section of the workers in the capitalist-imperialist countries have become a labour aristocracy, but the great portion of people around the world have increasingly become proletarians who in fact work "to survive for the next day, even without having an hour to think." In the 21st century hundreds of millions are being being worked to death in sweatshops, factories, farms and service sectors. Capitalism, with its anarchic, crisis-producing functioning, has even made life for the middle class a gamble with no predictable future in sight. Capitalism's unbridled assaults are not limited to exploitation at the point of production. Rather, in dialectical and intrinsic interrelation with its production relations of exploitation and class divisions, the workings of capitalism produce, reproduce and enforce oppressive social fault-lines such as patriarchy, national oppression and the huge divide between the countries dominated by imperialism and the capitalist-imperialist countries.


Environmental destruction is part and parcel of capitalism's metabolism, and the masses all over the world, on an everyday basis, experience the destructive and murderous powers of environmental deterioration through floods, cyclones, droughts, etc. Scientists have declared that environmental destruction is reaching an alarming point that can bring about the extinction of the human race itself. The bloody history of world capitalism has demonstrated that wars and destruction are an inseparable part of the motion of capital for expansion, and that the dynamics of contention among big capitals, striving for more profit and push out their rivals, inevitably leads to wars.


Capitalist states in countries dominated by imperialism – countries like Iran, Turkey, India, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Guatemala , etc. – need to impose harsh political tyranny and violent suppression on the masses as well as spreading religious obscurantism in order to subdue the masses of people. But even the "liberal democratic" countries impose "security" measures and a police atmosphere, conducting inquisitions and thought prohibition among the masses in these countries. Moreover, today a section of the ruling classes of the capitalist-imperialist countries has resorted to fascism – as concentrated in racism, immigrant-bashing and woman-hating and religious bigotry – as a response to the crises from the workings of their system itself. Not only has a fascist regime come to power in the USA, but in the European countries these forces are growing at a rapid rate and seizing the key institutions of power one by one.


So we can see that the majority of the people of the world need to overthrow the capitalist system and actually can and should join a communist revolution for overthrowing this system. This revolution is a class war. But it is not just for the proletarian class whose exploitation is the bone marrow of the capitalist system. Rather the goal of this revolution is human emancipation and the proletarian class itself will not be emancipated without emancipating the whole of humanity.


In Iran, the first step in carrying out the communist revolution is to overthrow the Islamic Republic of Iran and in its place establish a New Socialist Republic. With this revolution, we will overthrow the capitalist class and the Islamic state which is a guardian of that class and its interests. This class and its state, hand in hand and in partnership with the centres of world capitalism, enslave the productive potential and creativity not only of the workers but all other strata of people in our society. After overthrowing this state power, we will establish a new state, a dictatorship of the proletariat. Then, using this new state power, we will set out to transform the economic base and all the social relations and will organize a new social system on the basis of eliminating all class distinctions, all the production relations that produce class distinctions, all oppressive social relations and all the old ideas that flow from and justify oppression and exploitation. And we will turn Iran into a socialist liberated base area for advancing communist revolution in the world.


This is the only way to liberate ourselves and deal blows to expanding class divisions, unemployment and poverty, the oppression and degradation of women, our children being wasted in mines and brick factories and sweatshops, the oppression of non-Persian nationalities, the super-exploitation of Afghani immigrants, the destruction of the environment, the growing religious obscurantism and the suppression of science and art, the suppression of freedom of speech and liberty of thought and the crushing of intellectuals who enlighten the people, and the countless other miseries that people are experiencing under the rule of the Islamic Republic today.


Undoubtedly, this kind of revolution will have to travel a hard road with many twist and turns. Reactionary and imperialist wars in the Middle East abound and have expanded continuously in the last several decades, leading to the destruction of a number of countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. This trajectory tells us that our revolution will take place amidst raging, complex wars of all kinds. One of the basic documents of our party – The Strategy and Road to Revolution – puts forward the following approach and policy in the face of such an eventuality:


"... if the kind of wars we are witnessing in Libya and Syria and Iraq, happens in Iran, primarily and in a decisive way we have to expose the reactionary nature of all warlords (be it the forces of the Islamic Republic regime or the US and the forces organized and dependent on the US) to the masses of people – especially the youth. And on the basis of winning them away from those reactionary and imperialist forces, we should commit and organize them in efforts to initiate revolutionary war against the reactionary wars. This kind of preparation against reactionary wars has to go on, firstly and today, mainly through political work and political-mental preparation..."


The document goes on to stress: "Revolution must be carried out by conscious and organized masses under the leadership of the vanguard party. The strategy for a revolutionary war has to be initiated relying on the masses and with mass support, and has to develop in such a way that its mass character develops continuously ... Our strategic confidence in victory has a scientific basis. Because this regime and the ruling state and the imperialists have an essential weakness that they can never overcome: they are exploiters. This character does not change even when the masses wrongly follow them or the petite bourgeoisie resorts to political and ideological collaboration with the rulers and actually cooperates with them. This essential character can not be reformed.… In contrast, we represent a future society within which the fundamental contradiction of capitalism that produces the present sufferings of humanity will have been destroyed. Even political forces that are not communist can unite with our programme of communist revolution for a new Socialist Republic in Iran. Because this revolution and the establishment of socialism in Iran will also benefit the petit bourgeois strata. The international allies of the Islamic Republic are big, medium and small powers that are themselves in antagonistic class relations with their people. But our international allies are the workers and toilers and women and oppressed peoples of the world, and most importantly, the revolutionary communist forces and progressive people in the world who themselves aspire to change the world."


In the strategy for this revolution, internationalism is a decisive component – both for analysing the situation and understanding the material conditions that influence the development of revolutionary struggle, as well as taking up the internationalist approach in preparing and advancing the revolution. The material basis for internationalism is the development of capitalism into a world capitalist-imperialist system. Every country and region of the world represent different levels of this international system. Even though each of these levels has particular dynamics of its own and internal contradictions with relative autonomy, they are decisively shaped by the overall dynamics of this world system. Therefore, internationalism is not just a moral principle, and any moving away from the actual implications of this principle will doom the revolution to failure. So, all communist revolutions in different countries must be led as a part of one single process of world revolution.


In preparing the revolution in each country, internationalism is a fundamental point of departure and must have a significant role in changing the thinking of the people, preparing the political terrain and strengthening the communist vanguard party. Every revolution should be led by a communist vanguard party but on the basis of a universal communist theory. This theory was founded by Marx and Engels. It was developed in important aspects by Lenin and Mao, making possible the great socialist revolutions of the 20th century (first in Russia in 1917 and then in China in 1949). Today this theory has made a critical developmental leap with the New Communism, which makes even greater future victories possible. As a result of this developmental leap, today actually and objectively, the overall leadership of the single process of world revolution is embodied in the New Communism and Bob Avakian, who developed it. Any party and group, in any part of the world, that yearns to join the great march of a new wave of communist revolutions in the world, must study and investigate the major documents of this science and the strategy flowing from it, and consciously take it up and define the programme and path of revolution in each country they are to make revolution in and lead that revolution towards victory in practice. The basic documents of our party – Manifesto and Programme for Communist Revolution in Iran (2018), the Strategy and Path for Revolution in Iran, and the Constitution of New Socialist Republic of Iran (a Draft Proposal) are the cornerstone and guide for leading this process in Iran.


But our party must do more than advance revolution in Iran and cannot be content with that. In fact, propagating and spreading New Communism and helping the formation of groups and parties based on New Communism, wherever in the world we can, is part of advancing the strategy for communist revolution in Iran.


Let us return to the birth of May First in 1886 in Chicago: on 19 March of that year, one of those workers in Chicago told The Worker –a German language paper published in the US, "If we fail to prepare ourselves for a bloody revolution as soon as possible, we will not leave our children anything but poverty and enslavement. So let's arm ourselves to make revolution." This is a call that rings so relevant and urgently today. Only one night before May Day they wrote in their paper: “Dare to advance. The battle is on.... No compromise!". On 3 May, after the bloody suppression of their struggle, they wrote: "Private Property is watered by blood. This is a historical fact.... You oppressed and slaves: wipe your tears and rise up to overthrow this whole system of plunder!"
