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 ferocity with which, since 1948, the State of Israel has carried out the role entrusted to it (not without conflicts between them) by the victorious powers in the second world slaughterhouse - that of armed gendarme in defense of an area swollen with oil, a reservoir of cheap manpower, pregnant with current and potential social tensions – sums up to the nth degree what is happening in these days and weeks in and around the Gaza Strip.

Every war is preceded, accompanied and followed by an intense, suffocating ideological mobilization.

But there is no religious, national, ethnic, cultural discussion that matters. Do not bring up, with stupid and complicit ignorance, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and other disquisitions dear to academic ideology. Don't whine as priests do about the victory of Evil over Good. Don't gloat in the name of a pacifism destined to soon transform into support for the mobilization to defend "the homeland in danger". Let's not fill our mouths with the usual hypocritical tirades about Humanity, about Democracy, about violated and trampled upon Law, about a thousand disregarded "UN resolutions", about the threatened West. Do not hastily fall back on the latest fashion geopolitical analyses, which claim to say everything and in reality say nothing. Here there is only one explanation: this is capitalism, its ferocity lies entirely in its imperialist phase and the structural crisis within which it has been struggling for decades in a vain attempt to get out of it.

Even just staying within the post-World War II period, anticipated and inaugurated (remember it well) by the Nazi concentration camps, by Stalin's gulags, by the cities of Guernica and then Coventry and Dresden razed to the ground, by the atomic bombs dropped by US planes on the Japanese population, the wars have never stopped: Korea, Algeria, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and so on, and in addition all the upheavals that have shocked Africa immersed in colonial and post-colonial tragedies and Latin America transformed into the backyard, complete with bloody military coups, of Yankee imperialism, and today Ukraine and, in a macabre ritual that continues to repeat itself and in which only the disproportionate number of massacres of civilians (mostly proletarians) is growing, the Middle East... Perhaps we have left behind some other horrible example?

Capitalism is war. War is in the laws of its functioning, because capitalism is the war of all against all: on the market and in society, finally leading to war scenarios. Non-war wars and war wars: this is its reality, and we are not interested in repeating here, for the umpteenth time, the entire bloody path that accompanied the affirmation of the capitalist mode of production, its existence and today's obscene tragedy of the drag on of its agony. Of course, that of capital was a gigantic step forward, for the development of the productive forces, compared to previous modes of production: but a step forward paid, right from the beginning, with a tribute of blood on the part of the proletarian class, in the factory and in the streets as in the trenches, which, for ferocity and destructiveness, has no equal in human history (sorry! pre-history). And let no more be said!

Solidarity, therefore, with the Palestinian proletarians and those of the entire Middle Eastern area, victims of imperialism in all its national forms. Open criticism of all bourgeois formations which, in fomenting the nefarious illusion of a "homeland" (to be invented or defended), shut them within the confines of an incessant slaughter. Hard work alongside our international class so that it finally returns to the open fight against the capitalist vampire, awakening from the long tormented sleep full of nightmares into which the longest counter-revolution that has hit the workers' and communist movement has thrown it back - the only way to begin to give real and concrete solidarity to all the victims, today and future, of imperialist ferocity.

Just yesterday, a few weeks before this new horrendous chapter opened, after having briefly outlined the picture of the world situation, we wrote in our press: "Faced with this picture which in the coming months could see further, dramatic developments and accelerations in a pressing progression, the need for the strengthening and international rooting of the revolutionary party is increasingly clear: that is, for a stable political organization, founded on solid theoretical-political and tactical-strategic positions and the result of in-depth analyses and long militant experience, which knows how to connect all these elements and bring them back to their profound root (the survival of a mode of production long condemned by history) and, in doing so, propose again the real prospect of the seizure of power and the dictatorship of the proletariat, indicating both its real substance and the path, long and complex but necessary, to reach them". We have nothing else to add, in these weeks bathed in new proletarian blood.
