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.


  1. Organization of struggles to defend living and working conditions, to strike a hard blow at the economic and political interests of the bourgeoisie
  2. Refusal to accept economic and social sacrifices on behalf of the “national economy”
  3. An open break with the social pact and a determined return to the methods and objectives of the class war, the only real and feasible internationlist solidarity for us proletarians, in imperialist metropolises as well as in their periphery
  4. Refusal of all partisan complicity (nationalist, religious, patriotic, mercenary, humanitarian, pseudo-socialist, pacifist…) on behalf of any State or fronts of States involved in the wars
  5. Economic and social strike action leading to real general strikes in order to paralyse the life of the nation and open up paths for political strikes, able to slow down and prevent any war mobilisation and propaganda

Only on the basis of these practical principles will it be possible to prepare for refuting the poverty, pain and grieving that strike the majority of our class.  A class that is sacrificed on the frontlines of war as in the rearguard, in the name of “fatherlands” which are mere criminal associations whose aim is to perpetrate capitalist exploitation – an exploitation that over the span of more than two centuries is undermining the conditions for our species and nature – of which we are part – to continue surviving.

With these principles (and in the course of the battles that it is and will be obliged to fight), our class, the immense crowd of people who in order to live can do no more than sell their labour, will be able to recover independence in the struggle against their historical enemy, the bourgeoisie and the multitudes of intellectualoid half classes and parasites that support it, against the State and their institutions.

But not unless the avantgardes of our class struggle organise on the basis of this content (and not only of the necessary but limited terrain of union work, environment, social issues, etc…), meeting and reinforcing the party of communist revolution, will it be possible to prepare for open anti-militarist, defeatist and anti-patriotic action. Which means:

Allowing ones own State and its allies to be defeated, with organised disobedience towards military hierarchies, fraternising with our class brothers (also trapped in their own “fatherlands”), holding on to the arms in order to first defend ourselves and then free ourselves from the tentacles of the bourgeois institutions.  

We must not concede to pacifism, ecologism or any other “-ism” offered by those who propose apparently easy and practicable solutions to the drama and disasters caused by the capitalist mode of production, or all those who shout and bang their fists on the table, in their effort to make us believe they can be remedied, on condition that... the manouverers are changed!  All attempts to reform bourgeois society (from democratic social reformism reminiscent of the eighteen-hundreds, to that of Christian or Islamic inspiration, including “national-socialist” and populist) have only served to show the way the more intelligent and educated part of the ruling bourgeoisie wishes to and succeeeds in perpetrating its own devastating dictatorship.       

Faced with the great potential represented by the forces of production, the limits and horrors of the forms of capitalist production (bourgeois property, exploitation of the workforce and nature, monopoly of products and production capacity: guaranteed forms, justified and sustained by the State institutions) demonstrate the need for a movement to change the existing state of affairs.  

But we must not come defenceless and unprepared  to the day when that movement will take concrete shape.  Its preparation and direction, which the immense class of salaried workers is obliged and summoned to undertake, needs a weapon: the Communist Party, in its operational unity in terms of organization, tactics, programme, principles, theory.  And to undertake the great work of making this weapon effective and operational, the comrades of our party call on you.
