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.

Strangled by the State of Israel, tortured daily by constant harassment and killings, stuck in a blind alley of vain nationalist promises from all the Arab bourgeoisies in the region (including the Palestinian), sacrificial victims of all the more or less subterranean wheelings and dealings of western and Middle-Eastern States, the Palestinian proletarians, both men and women, in the Gaza Strip are about to suffer the umpteenth wave of slaughter after the previous ones - perhaps long past but never forgotten with anger and horror - of  Tell Al-Zataar (Lebanon, August 1976) and Sabra and Chatila (again Lebanon, September 1982), as well as the many more which followed.  More hundreds and thousands of Palestinian deaths (men, women, children, old people) will thus add to the daily martyrdom suffered ever since that unlucky day in 1948, when the victorious powers in the second world bloodbath made the newborn State of Israel into the armed police of an area that was too “sensitive” (to use a term dear to today’s geopolitics) for their respective economic interests and political-strategic balances. 

It is up to Western proletarians, exploited by their national capitalisms but in a way “privileged” compared to the world’s disinherited masses, proletarian or on the way to proletarianization, to start making their voice heard again, united in their fight against daily exploitation, which has a common root:  the survival of the capitalist mode of production.  Only by returning to a daily battle against capital, against its national accomplices in the form of political parties in government or aspiring to it and the régime’s trade unions by now stable supporters of their States, against all the tragic reformist and pacifist, gradualist and democratic illusions - only by means of the battle against their “own” bourgeoisies and the “higher demands of the national economy”, against all nationalist temptations, however they are disguised, - only in this way, and not by means of the faded rituals of proclamations or occasional marches, will the proletarians of the West be able to give practical help to their Middle Eastern brothers and sisters who are heading today for the umpteenth massacre.

We internationalist communists stand alongside the Palestinian men and women of the proletariat,  as we do alongside all those in all States in the area, as well as those already massacred by the wars and skirmishes that are multiplying in various other parts all over the planet. The world economic crisis in which capitalism has been immersed - on and off - ever since the mid-Nineteen-Seventies, is accelerating the process whereby a new, worldwide, inter-imperialist conflict is being prepared: Ukraine, Sub-Saharan Africa, Nagorno Karaback, Kossov... This is why the prospect and practice of revolutionary defeatism must return: no alliance with our own” bourgeoisie or those of other States, whose defeat we ardently desire!

So that the umpteenth mass martyrdom of the proletarian masses that is being prepared in the Gaza Strip will not be in vain!


Alongside the men and women of the Palestinian proletariat!
