What does the Communist Party stand for?

April 30, 2016

The Communist Party stands for putting people before profit. We defend the interests of the 99% against the blood-sucking parasitic class of bankers and corporation CEOs. We go further than calling for political revolution. We fight to get rid of capitalism and replace it with socialism.

The Communist Party stands for uniting the 99%, the working class and its allies. United we can win the fight against capitalist exploitation. United we can fight racism, sexism and anti-immigrant hysteria. The defense of democracy is central to defense of the interests of working people. Only through democracy can we advance to socialism.

The Communist Party stands for internationalism. We work to unite the international working class. United we can stop “the race to the bottom” and win world peace.
