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.

The endless slaughter of Palestinian proletarians demonstrates what imperialism is capable of and what it has in store

Yet again.  As if moving to the rhythm of an infernal dance, once again the massacre recurs again of our class brothers in Palestine, who for over sixty years now have suffered the rule of the imperialist Israeli bourgeoisie and are further betrayed by the connivance of national fractions of the Arab bourgeoisie and the manipulation of the religious, lay and fake-socialist nationalism of “their” ruling class.

The Utopian ideal of “two peoples, two states”, when the economic structure and dynamics of capital prevent any development independent of the “Israeli” one, proves to be the realisation of the very real Dystopia of a “Palestinian National Authority” that has assumed for itself the role of controlling, managing, organising and selling the labour of hundreds of thousands of Arab-speaking proletarians.

A cynical sort of control which, for the sake of preventing even the slightest hope of even the slightest class independence, does not hesitate to sacrifice thousands of lives on the altar of an impossible and anachronistic “Palestinian fatherland”.

The atrocious fate of the Palestinian proletariat and the whole disaster of the Middle East points to a revelation of what is in store for the entire world proletariat from the capitalist bourgeoisie organised in its national states, each more imperialist than the next: a humanity to be exploited in the machinery of wage labour, to be squeezed to the bone as consumers of increasingly useless and damaging goods, to be stultified by a superstitious culture and a lifestyle that sums up centuries of social oppression, to kill in the name of a fatherland, a religion, a race, an undetermined people… whilst relentlessly the monopoly of production forces concentrates the ownership of social wealth in the hands of a “democratic” oligarchy, supported by a multitude of technicians, intellectuals, priests, scientists, all patriots happy to prosper on the little their masters hand out to them…   

Proletarians of Palestine, proletarians of the Middle East, the drowning proletarians in every “people”!  Not one drop of our blood must be shed any longer in the cause of the mythical inter-class unity of national states: against the wars that pit us one against the other to kill and destroy capitals, goods and human beings, we must retort by taking up once again our battle against all bourgeoisies, the battle against all their institutions, the battle against the capitalist mode of production.

Everywhere hotbeds of war are on the increase with the inevitable slaughter of whole populations: this, too, is how the coming world bloodbath is being prepared.  It is becoming more and more urgent to refuse patriotic and nationalist blackmail in all its forms, both material and ideological.  The concept and practice of revolutionary defeatism must be reintroduced into our class: the refusal of any alliance with one’s own bourgeoisie, with one’s own State (the tool of rule of national capital), with one or the other line-up of international brigands, always all united in exploiting and attacking the proletariat.

The enemy is not on the other side of the border:  the enemy is in our own home!
