To the internationalists!

To the defenders of Marxism!

Throughout the history of the workers' movement, different political currents of the bourgeois class have tried to cover their demands and class interests by dressing for Marxism. One of these political trends has been the current so-called worker communism. Worker communism, by grasping words such as International, the Revolution and Communism, and with the radical phrase, has tried to introduce itself as a historical current that advocated Marxism against other anti-revolutionary tendencies. It has been an attempt at induction that it is an internationalist current whose platform will become the platform of the social revolution, not only in the Middle East, but also in the European and American workers' movement. In this context, the organisation of the Worker-Communism Initiative of France and Belgium [1] and the Workers Party in the United States [2] chose “a better world”, the platform of worker communism as their platform.

Are spreading propaganda that of the worker communism current will become the theory of the social revolution of the workers of Western countries. It was in this regard that the organisation of the workers’ communist initiative demanded that it’s time for worker-communism to land in Western countries, to be set up as a communist answer to the Western working-class issues:


Now, it’s time for worker-communism to land in western countries, to be set up as a communist answer to the western working-class issues.”[3]


In the early 1980s, this current sought to approach the communist left. This was not possible, and in its process, under the influence of left communism, some of its activists criticized their current. In this context, the ideologue of the current under the guise of criticism was smeared and humiliated the Left Communists. Those negligible apprentices who were indebted to second hand Stalinist-Maoist knowledge, to Left Communism, which has taken a proletarian position in the darkest period of the counter-revolution, to the internationalist communists who have gained the richest Marxist achievements in the worst conditions, who express, contempt and humiliation that Left Communism is not familiar with the theoretical rulings and principles of Marxism, and as they smeared below:


"At least we had the impression that the ‘Left Communism’ was a theoretical current, whose problem should not be sought in understanding the relationship between theory and practice, but rather the theoretical rulings and principles of Marxism." [4] [Our translation]

Under the influence of the Internationalist Communist Party, the Italian section of this current became in crisis and dissolved. The ideologues of this current tried to overcome this crisis, not spreading to other sections, especially Britain. And, under the title of criticism, began to launch a hysterical attack on the left communism, and in particular on the Internationalist Communist Party (Battaglia Communista), and wrote:

“Indeed it can be said that the platform of PCI [Battaglia Communista] in terms of the form of regulation and the issues raised, is not a coherent political platform, nor is it similar to a party program; but also it is a diverse set of theoretical comments and political positions without any clear and comprehensive political behaviour or theoretical insight has been provided."[5] [Our translation]

Unfortunately, this bourgeois and counter-revolutionary current, in the name of communism and the worker, has played a major role in smearing the revolutionary and communist values and terms such as revolution, communism, and proletariat. We have responded from an internationalist perspective, paragraph by paragraph, to this current’s delirious slander towards the left communism in the eighth part. We respond to the slogan of the flow of this flow to the left communist from the internationalist horizons in the eighth section. The sludge of this current to the Communist Left and the Communist Internationalist Party has given a decisive Marxist response. We have no criticism of this bourgeoisie current; the critique of our class to the bourgeois class is only through the communist revolution.

The series of articles "Worker Communism, radical conscience of the left of capital", is not the anatomy of worker communism, nor an analysis of worker communism, but is also in defence of Marxism and its proletarian goals, which should have exposed to public view the counter-revolutionary and bourgeois nature of this current. The disclosure of the counter-revolutionary and anti-communist nature of this current is not limited to the Middle East. In this series of articles deeply Marxist topics such as the concept of social revolution (section three), Marxist economic topics (section four), war from a Marxist position (section five), the Marxist concept of the Party (section six), Stalinism and socialism in one country (section seven), basic positions of Left Communism (section eight), etc., are discussed or will be discussed.

Exposing to the public the view of the bourgeois nature and the anti-worker function of this current from the internationalist horizons, most importantly, the defence of Marxism, requires the cooperation of all those who consider the class struggle and the social events from an internationalist perspective. Continuity and the continued publication of these articles in English, on the one hand, is due to the huge volume of articles and, on the other hand, is due to the limited possibilities of Internationalist Voice, requires the collaboration of other internationalists. All comrades, internationalists, are welcome to contribute to continuing to publish these articles in defence of Marxism.
