Red salute to Comrade Iris Cremer (November 1943-April 2014)

Comrade Godfrey CremerTogether with Comrade Godfrey, Iris lived a life that taught a whole generation just what it meant to really be a communist. Their selfless, work-focused home was as warm and welcoming a place as any of us have ever known, and their example lives on in all who had the good fortune to experience their generous hospitality and gentle guidance.
Tribute to Iris Mary Jessie Cremer

Women hold up half the sky
Not a single great movement of the oppressed has been able to do without the participation of working women!
Women's liberation will only be achieved under socialism

Poster for the Chinese film Red Detachment of WomenWhere does women's oppression come from? How can we end it? As the crisis deepens, the situation of women is becoming worse and not better. Women are disproportionately affected by cuts and unemployment, while the rights of working women with caring responsibilities are once more being openly attacked by employers who demand 'flexibility' above all else.

Nelson Mandela: freedom fighter
Nelson Mandela and his legacy

Comrade Nelson MandelaAttempts are being made to rewrite the history of Mandela and the ANC. A myth is in the process of being created according to which Mandela was totally committed to non-violence; that he was a South African Gandhi who opposed the use of armed resistance by the oppressed masses in pursuit of their liberation.

Nothing could be further from the truth. After the Sharpeville massacre of 1960, Mandela was one of the key founders of the ANC's military wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe in 1961, and its first Commander-in-Chief. He never went back on the principle of armed resistance in pursuit of liberation.    Read the full article

LEAFLET: No cooperation with capitalist austerity!

Protestor's placard reads: 'Stop evictions'. Locksmiths and firefighters have refused to cooperate with evictions in SpainOur rulers have made it clear what their plan is: they hope to pass the burden of their latest crisis onto the backs of working people through austerity and war, saving their fortunes and their system at our expense. They do not care what catastrophic effects their self-preservation strategies have on the planet or the masses of humanity.

It is time for Britain's workers to make an alternative plan. If we want to stop this assault, we must stop expecting the minions of the capitalist state to deliver justice and get organised to claim what is rightfully ours.    Read the leaflet; Read the full article

STATEMENT: Defeat the murderous imperialist predatory war against the Syrian people!

A US soldier protests against war on SyriaSyria has become the target of imperialist subversion and aggression for pursuing independent economic and foreign policies, for opposing the war in Libya, for its support for the Iraqi resistance, for its support for the cause of the liberation of Palestine from zionist occupation, and for its alliance with Iran and the Lebanese resistance movement, Hizbollah; in short, for its position in the axis of resistance that today stands in opposition to the zionist-imperialist axis of evil.    Read the statement

Overproduction book cover BOOK: Imperialism and the Worst-Ever Crisis of Overproduction by H Brar and E Rule

Tracing the origins and development of the current world crisis of imperialism, the authors show just why it is that the leading imperialist powers are ramping up their attacks on the working class at home and waging ever more barbaric wars against the oppressed peoples abroad. In doing so they confirm once again the validity of Marxist-Leninist science and show that only the revolutionary path can bring peace and prosperity to humanity.

LEAFLET: Axe the tax! Let the rich pay for their crisis!

Protestor's placard reads: 'Can't Pay Won't Move'If our rulers really want to do something about the affordable housing shortage, why not set rent controls in the private sector, build lots of new social homes and requisition all those empty 'deluxe' flats?

It is not immigrants, fat people, poor people, smokers, benefit claimers, council-house tenants, hoodies or pensioners who are 'bleeding the country dry' but the free-market-fundamentalist gangsters who rampage all over the globe in search of profit, profit and more profit.    Read the leaflet

LEAFLET: Time to face it: capitalism must go!

Greek communists occupy the Acropolis in Athens and call upon European workers to rise upThe government wants us to pay the price of preserving the bankers' and billionaires' dying system. It wants us to save capitalism by sacrificing ourselves, our grandparents and our children at the altar of free-market fundamentalism.

But the financial crisis is not of our making; our work can and will create sufficient wealth for everybody to be able to live well. If capitalism will not produce or distribute because there's no profit to be made, then the working class take over production itself.    Read the leaflet

LEAFLET: Save the NHS from capitalist greed

Demonstration against NHS privatisation outside parliamentAll too often, anti-privatisation campaigners leave themselves exposed by a superficial analysis that sees the HASC Bill as the personal project of Lansley himself. Always in the background there lurks the dangerous illusion that every British worker should by now know to avoid like the plague: that if only a Labour government were in office, all would be well.    Read the leaflet

LEAFLET: Ground the drones; no cooperation with British war crimes!

Pakistani women protest against CIA drone strikesIf we continue to accept the assassination of those deemed to be 'enemies' abroad, how long will it be before British workers are asked to accept the extra-judicial murders of working-class politicians at home as being necessary for our 'security'?

Instead of falling for the capitalists' lies, we need to unite with all those who are standing up against British imperialism in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and elsewhere. We need to launch a mass campaign of non-cooperation with British imperialism's war crimes. Together, we have the power to ground the drones and stop imperialism's dirty wars, for it is workers who ultimately have to carry out these anti-worker actions.    Read the leaflet; Read the full article

STATEMENT: The US is stoking the flames of war in Korea

Top: Anti-war poster slogan reads: No more war, US out of Korea. Bottom: Che Guevara was a great admirer of Kim Il Sung and socialist KoreaIn the context of the latest US-led military exercises, more and more deadly military equipment is being poured into the Korean tinderbox. Three warships are gathering in the waters just off Korea's coast, and thousands of US soldiers are engaged in full-scale dress-rehearsal for a nuclear war.

Meanwhile, nuclear-capable US B-52 bombers have been practising bombing raids over Korea, awaking memories among the people of the DPRK of how every town and city in their country was flattened by US carpet-bombing raids in the genocidal war of 1950-53. Four million Koreans were killed as a result of imperialism's barbaric assault on their country.

STATEMENT: A red salute to Comrade Hugo Chávez

Comrade Hugo ChavezA great revolutionary light has been extinguished, but the cause for which President Hugo Chávez fought lives on as his abiding legacy, for it is the finest cause in all the world -- and he served it truly.

It is with profound sorrow that we learned of Comrade Chávez's deteriorating medical condition and death, but his great spirit -- which helped to transform the economic and political relations of his fellow workers, the Venezuelan masses, and the Americas -- lives on.    Read the full statement

LEAFLET: Support Palestine ... Join the axis of resistance!

Palestine flagBritish workers can actually do a lot more, if we are prepared to use our collective power over the country's economy. The ruling class might give orders, but it is we who are expected to carry them out. If we all refuse, there is not that much they can do.

Neither the capitalists themselves, nor their careerist spivs in Whitehall are about to send their own kids to work in arms factories, to drive trains, to crew cargo ships, to enlist as cannon fodder, or even to print and broadcast their pro-Israel propaganda.    Read the full leaflet

About the CPGB-ML

An understanding of society (theory) and a way of uniting to change it (organisation) are the two things that we need to make a socialist revolution. Ordinary people in Britain have everything to gain by getting involved in this process sooner rather than later. This world isn't working for us and we deserve better!

Not only do we need to campaign against the bad conditions and lack of prospects for working-class people in Britain today, but we need to work for a completely different type of society -- one where people's needs decide everything.

So many problems face this world: environmental catastrophe, poverty, disease, racism and war. They'll never be solved while capitalism remains, but they could all be sorted if society was set up for the benefit of the majority rather than the private gain of a few billionaires.

Our party is different because we consistently apply Marxist science to all areas of our work, and we're not scared to tell it how it is. We refuse to be intimidated by the barrage of lying propaganda that fills Britain's mainstream media. It is the capitalists' job to try to stop us from building a socialist society; it is our job to do it anyway!

Challenge your ideas -- challenge their propaganda -- seek the truth -- serve the people -- change the world!
