Statements

In between documents agreed at our congresses, the Party has published statements on important issues. This page reproduces those statements, along with congress documents published in Workers.

Britain and the World

International statement from the Communist Party of Britain Marxist-Leninist, 17th Congress, London, November 2015. Our world is in flames, and the threat of war is real. Who is for war? Who is for peace? What of the working class?

No advance without Marxism

13 February 2016

Political statement from the Communist Party of Britain Marxist-Leninist, 17th Congress, London, November 2015. There can be no advance without Marxism, because Marx showed that only the eventual victory of the exploited class, the working class, represents a real future. Capitalism means only destruction and war.  Here in Britain, we need our own unique vision of a working class future in order to fight and win in the present.

EU referendum now!

The Parliamentary parties have often promised a referendum but have always broken their promises, because they represent capitalism and capitalists are afraid to hear the views of the working class.

Six calls to action

The Communist Party of Britain Marxist-Leninist held its 16th Congress in late 2012, a coming together of the Party to consider the state of Britain and what needs to happen in the future. Here we set out briefly six Calls to Action for the British working class.

Britain’s war against Libya

Britain’s brutally aggressive adventure in Libya is to be utterly condemned. Claiming falsely to protect civilians, British military jets are raining munitions from the sky on to Tripoli and other Libyan cities…

Change Britain – Embrace Your Party

Political statement from the Communist Party of Britain Marxist-Leninist, 15th Congress, London, November 2009. The British government and the capitalist class internationally want us to believe that the working class cannot change anything, everything is beyond our control. We think differently.

The Future is Ours

Political statement from the Communist Party of Britain Marxist-Leninist, 14th Congress, London April 2006. At the 2003 congress the Party laid out an analysis of the state of Britain and the class which has been utterly borne out by events. The questions for us to consider now are: Where do we go from here? What has changed? How do we strike out for a future?

EU constitution

After the magnificent votes against the EU Constitution in France and Holland, those here who want to try to save the tatters of a Treaty are desperate to deny a similar vote to British workers.

Principles for Progress

17 October 2004

Any worker reflecting on events today will see unbridled US aggression, record job losses in Britain’s manufacturing base, chaos in our schools and hospitals, the further undermining of our sovereignty by unceasing European Union integration.

Workers and the war

The commencement of overt hostilities against Iraq brings centre stage the struggle against the United States imperial way. Not since the heroic struggle of the people of Vietnam has the clash of interest between imperial aggression and sovereignty been so polarised.

Peace, Jobs, Power

Political statement from the 13th Congress of the CPBML, London, 21/22 April 2003. Capitalism is now in terminal decay, unable to feed, clothe, house, provide work for or meet the needs of the people of this country. From seeming synonymous with manufacture, capital is now its antithesis.
