Today working class is divided on almost all fronts. Division due religion, colour, region existed since long but their venom has grown many times, in recent times.
The revolt by the working class after the economic crisis of 2008 was massive and world over. But due lack of revolutionary aim, revolutionary ideology and revolutionary party to lead them, it disintegrated.
The imperialist capitalism counter attacked and the result is visible in US, India, Ukraine, Syria, Latin American nations, France and many other.
The erstwhile Socialist blocs, who had already forfeited their gains of revolution after the treachery of Khrushchev & cliches, Tito, Trots and others, are no exception, after capitalist restoration. Mao seemed satisfied with the idea of replacing the world proletarian leader Stalin and let “Mao Thought” replace Marxism Leninism, harmed the cause more than the unity it could foster.
Enver Hoxa and the Labour Party of Albania kept the revolutionary flag high, but ultimately it lost the battle against imperialist capitalism!
Now what? Undoubtedly, re-establish Marxist Leninist theory, unite & struggle to establish proletarian dictatorship. Defeat capitalism, establish socialism, complete the historical task assigned to the most advanced class of the human civilisation so far.
Comrades, any other combination, permutation in this scientific theory is only an effort to dilute our unity, dilute our struggle and subvert our revolution!
The May 1st demonstration in London is the most militant demonstration held in Britain to support International Workers Day. With the exception of Chesterfield, Manchester and a handful of other places, most May 1st celebrations are extremely lacklustre owing to the suffocating hold of the Labour Party “right-wing” and the geriatric meanderings from the platform of the troto-revisionist fraternity.

Uphold Stalin & Enver Hoxha to demolish foreign & revisionist ideas in proletarian revolutionary ideology!
“The Indian army was headed by a Christian general, the navy more than once, and same with the air force. The country’s defence forces have countless men and women in uniform who are Christians. How can they be declared non-Indians by Parivar hotheads out to create a pure Hindu Rashtra?”
Written almost 2 years back but more relevant back, but more relevant! The ‘pseudo secularism’, based on capitalism has given way to fascism! Present ruling class, with its state & machinery, parliament, police included has 100s of pipelines connected to your pocket, the lifeline of the working class, land of peasants!
Religion, country is mask of this dreaded monster, now not only among us but ruling us, controlling us in every means!
Not only the ignorant and superstitious mind creates many gods but also many devils and the mind itself makes them fight, makes them dance, makes god victorious, devils lose but finally makes mankind weak, helpless.
Many manifestos are meant to ‘satisfy’, ‘befool’, or ‘create unity for struggle’ for the various classes and sections of the society, divided into various religions, caste, nations, etc!
Mankind; basically the poor, the exploited; likes to believe (As per their mental makeup, based on the class they belong to) that if it prays to the god, bows in front of god, throws its ego and knowledge, begs god for forgiveness and riches; the master or the god may fulfil the mankind’s wishes!!! This mental slavery is product of class divided society, like in Feudalism, the King was made by the god itself to rule the people!
End of class, end of present classes, the capitalist and the working class, will ensure free minds and such ‘creation’ will cease due the scientific & exploitation free material background and environment and scientific education!
Hereafter, there will be no manifesto needed but only the programmes for the future production of wealth & services needed by the people, further scientific exploration to discover the unknown mystery of the nature or the Universe , technologies to reduce the manual work! These programmes will also include sports, arts, spiritualism, entertainment, individual’s all round progress, etc.
Till then, we have the master manifesto, the Communist Manifesto, for the working class, the most advanced class in the evolution of the mankind and the last class, which will rule the society, before it destroys the exploiters, the capitalist class and itself for a classless society.
Any other manifesto for the exploited class will be extension of the quoted manifesto, keeping the existing conditions of a particular society to enhance the class unity & struggle, dialectically!
Quoting Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Enver hoxha is one thing and being a Marxist Leninist is another!
There are Marxists and there are Marxists, which leads to even Trotskyism, Titoism, Anarchism, Social democracy, etc. By quoting same paragraph, one deducts that now on electoral revolution will only succeed, while other deducts that only violent revolution will succeed!
In India and many other undeveloped countries, these Marxists conclude that we need Democratic revolution, while others are for Socialist revolution. These two different paths will decide which class to lead and which class to come in support during revolution. What should be immediate tactics and strategies.
This outcome may not be due sheer opportunism but even due ignorance, not able to grasp the law of revolution in totality.
What is to be done? Discussion in study circles, reading more, joining working class for practical, self criticism!
Comrades, get out of the shell we are in, out of philistinism. Right’s march, since the ‘retreat of rise of working class all over EU, US, Latin America and even Africa and Asia in 2008’ is painful. Fascism, not in its classical form, but in the latest one is already among us. US, Indian, Ukraine are the few examples.
Unity & struggle was the need for the proletarian revolution but now its is additionally needed for our very survival! Historical task of this revolution is crying loud enough to be heard even by the bourgeois apologists but what about us, the Left leaders, ideologues?
“Not a single great movement of the oppressed in the history of mankind has been able to do without the participation of working women.
Working women, the most oppressed among the oppressed, never have or could stand aside from the broad path of the liberation movement. This movement of slaves has produced, as is known, hundreds and thousands of martyrs and heroines. Tens of thousands of working women were to be found in the ranks of fighters for the liberation of the serfs. It is not surprising that millions of working women have been drawn in beneath the banners of the revolutionary movement of the working class, the most powerful of all liberation movements of the oppressed masses.
International Women’s Day is a token of invincibility and an augury of the great future which lies before the liberation movement of the working class.
Working women – workers and peasants – are the greatest reserve of the working class. This reserve constitutes a good half of the population. The fate of the proletarian movement, the victory or defeat of the proletarian revolution, the victory or defeat of proletarian power depends on whether or not the reserve of women will be for or against the working class.
That is why the first task of the proletariat and its advanced detachment, the communist party, is to engage in decisive struggle for the freeing of women workers and peasants from the influence of the bourgeoisie, for political education and the organisation of women workers and peasants beneath the banner of the proletariat.
International Women’s Day is a means of winning the women’s labour reserves to the side of the proletariat. Working women are not only reserves, however. They can and must become – if the working class carries out a correct policy – a real army of the working class, operating against the bourgeoisie.
The second and decisive task of the working class is to forge an army of worker and peasant women out of the women’s labour reserves to operate shoulder to shoulder with the great army of the proletariat.
International Woman’s Day must become a means for turning worker and peasant women from a reserve of the working class into an active army in the liberation movement of the proletariat.”
– J.V. Stalin, “1925 International Women’s Day Address”
