“The tasks of Communist and Workers’ Parties to strengthen the struggle of the working class against capitalist exploitation, imperialist wars and fascism, for workers’ and peoples’ emancipation, for socialism”.
Capitalist exploitation is a global action plan. In Europe the European Union (EU) is playing the leading role in capitalist exploitation. Right wing parties in governments in all European level repeat and practice the same austerity politics against people and the working class. We the citizens are told not to have alternatives. We the communist are being marginalized and forced out of the media debate. The only truth – the truth of the markets, money, banks and business politics is printed out and broadcast in every media. Neo liberal logics color the free time, arts and the culture.
Workers’ and peoples’ emancipation in Europe today means breaking free from the capitalists hegemony and the bourgeois plan to destroy the role of society that has any social or collective function.
EU and its neoliberal politics has an open plan to destroy collective production and funding of the public services. EU politics is leading a radical distribution of wealth from the poor to the rich, increase of women’s unemployment and poverty.
Social democratic and left forces firstly have adopted the logics of the markets and secondly joined bourgeois organized auctions to sell public property. This is leading to a market dictatorship, weakening of participatory democracy and increasing of chauvinism and inequality. Capitalist exploitation in the Arctic means increasing actions with extremely high risks of nature catastrophes and trampling down the basic rights of the aboriginal people.
Fascism grows in neighborhoods where children and young people don´t get education. Fascism grows with the unemployment. I dare to say that, there where we lose connection to international class struggle fascism bursts out. Where the only analysis to migration is done by the capitalists and the businessmen fascist initiatives take place with no exception.
Historically fascist parties have made alliances with the political bourgeois elite, with big industries, banks, state officials and the army.
Fascists love to criticize capitalism, austerity and cutting list. Today the same fascists that criticize the current situation sit in our European parliaments practicing austerity politics and preparing the cutting lists they themselves criticize. Today like we know from the history of fascism both the national and the foreign poor are blamed for the situation. It is communist’s task to open the curtain of the play and to show the structure of fascist politics – to show that it is all about redistribution of income and wealth from the poor to the pockets of the rich, banks and business.
During the recent years we have listed elections after elections how new populist right wing parties take the power. This has led to a situation where open racism and fascism has become more accepted in our European societies. Openly racist and fascist candidates - criminals have taken more and more parliamentary seats in Europe. This is leading to a new situation where discriminative laws are being presented with intention to create two classes of the poor. Firstly the national poor and secondly the poor that migrate to Europe. There are proposals that will keep both groups of the poor under EU poverty line. There are proposals that cut the migrant’s social rights lower than the national social security.
Right wing parties use populist fascist parties to do the dirty work and make the poor fight against the poor. Right wing parties use populist fascist parties to present refugees as the scapegoats for the greedy capitalist politics, wars and climate change.
Workers’ and peoples’ emancipation in Europe today means breaking free from governments that put the poor against the poor and don´t respect basic human rights.
We communist need international institutions and initiatives as alternatives to the big capital and power of money. Current EU fits badly to our need. Latin American development from Cuba as the one and only socialist star of hope to a 13 left governments of today, functions as great inspiration to European communists and other radical left forces. Current situation challenges all European communists to work closer together with each other and with different people’s initiatives, radical left forces, ecological alternatives, queer-feminist movements, peace initiatives and syndicates. Initiatives like the French and larger European left idea of a plan B for the euro crises and a conference of the debt are mill metric initiatives but import ones along the road out of the global and European crises. It is too easy as a conclusion to break the EU itself or resign it, but to present its capitalist structure, undemocratic agreements and like the Latin Americans find new forces to oppose with a larger front the forces of the capital.
United States, one of the most important NATO forces has placed permanent military troops in the Baltics (in the Eastern Europe). Today in Scandinavia all the Nordic countries are joining NATO led military exercises from an everyday bases. Current situation is extremely worrying because of the growing military activities of the NATO in the Arctic and agreements like Host Nation agreement that allows NATO to enter in military actions easier than before. NATO aims to incorporate all the European Nordic countries into its military exercises, membership and into the campaign of building up image of Russia as the next possible war enemy.
Instead of the military confrontation and exploitation of the nature in the Arctic we have the right to demand a 180 degree change in the current politics. We the communists of the High North should see that the new situation in the Arctic challenges all of us communists to a closer political work and collaboration.
Workers’ and peoples’ emancipation in Europe today means breaking free from capitalists plan to destroy the role of society that has any social and collective function, breaking free from governments that puts the poor against the poor and does not respect basic human rights and breaking free from the Nato led imperialist war actions.
Alone we are weak. Unity makes us and our struggle stronger. Together with those dissatisfied with current politics, how decisions are made, who´s voice is not heart we can make the turn to a equalitarian Europe and better world.
Marxist vise communists and those who have never heard about our scientific communist concepts need to find each other. Future changes in the politics need this connection of the people and radical thinkers. Work for socialism is done in collaboration with the masses unsatisfied with the current situation and us communists´ and workers´ parties.
Yes - Future changes are possible!
