At a time when the working class badly needs to develop its consciousness, its organisation and its methods of struggle, Le Prolétaire presents indiscriminate violence as the pinnacle of the class struggle! This is against the historical method of the Italian Communist Left.
We publish below a correspondence between the latter two organisations on the question of how to - or whether to - expose such an individual and those political parasites who defend them. Should the Communist Left as a whole - irrespectively of the political differences among them – publicly warn all revolutionaries, particularly the younger and less experienced ones, of the dangerous trap represented by the actions of such an adventurer? Or should it maintain a public silence about the latter?
This article was written before the terrible events in Derna, Libya, after floods stirred up by Storm Daniel swept through ill-maintained dams on the Wadi Derna and caused unimaginable levels of destruction. Over 11,000 are known to have died, thousands more are missing and those left in the ruins face starvation and disease. Nothing could more clearly illustrate the growing impact of climate change and capitalism’s total inability to build a “dam” against it, as the article below clearly shows.
A conference which can only serve to create a phoney communist left
The 2nd Bulletin of discussion between groups of the communist left in response to the war in Ukraine.
Our critique of the recent statement of the Internationalist Communist Tendency justifying the creation of a number of local committees around the slogan 'No War But the Class War'
As the acceleration of capitalist barbarism forces more and more people to flee their place of birth, the 'democratic' capitalist states are building new and murderous obstacles to restrict entry to seekers of 'asylum’.
The aim of this article is not to engage in a debate on the political validity of our platform - which we are obviously always prepared to do through an honest confrontation with divergent positions - but to re-establish the reality of it by denouncing the approach of the International Group of the Communist Left (IGCL) aimed exclusively at discrediting our positions, in particular by presenting them as being influenced by councilism.
