Communiqué from the Marxist-Leninists Parties and Organizations from Europe’s meeting

In June 2008, delegates from the Marxist-Leninists Organizations and Parties from Europe have met in Madrid in order to discuss some questions related to communist’s work in the trade union movement.

Discussion has focused on the politic and economic context, which is characterized by a raise of the aggressive politics of the imperialism. With “neoliberalism” we do mean imperialism’s politic of nowadays, a politic that only serves to the oligarchy and are destined to guarantee the highest benefit for the monopoles, in detriment of the workers and their rights and in detriment of the peoples. A politic that can be resumed like this: “Less state to protect and more state to attack workers and peoples.”

In front of the illusions propagated by the social-democrats and the reformists, we declare that a « protective » capitalism is impossible. The actual politic is the true face of imperialism which redoubles its aggressions due to the intensification of the crisis and the contradictions between imperialists foreign powers, in their struggle for the markets and the influence zones.

In Europe, the consequences of this politic are: the questioning of social conquests of the working class and labor legislation: the degradation and privatization of public services; the reinforcement of repressive state, the militarization and the armed aggression against countries. The European Union is working on reinforcing its nature of imperialist foreign power in the international context of the politic of aggression of the USA.

In this new juncture, the working class movement is getting reactivated, social mobilization is growing and the trade union fight is getting more and more important. The discussion has also focused on the question of communist’s work into trade union movement.

Trade union movement has to fight for its demands in an offensive way, having into account the specific situation and developing the fight for class-conscious trade union’s unity.

We communists insist on the necessity of working into the big masses’ trade unions which organizes the essential part of the organized sectors of the proletariat and of making more politic the trade union fights in order to give them a revolutionary way.

We call for defending the right of workers to be in trade unions, in particular for the immigrants and we call for going forward in the coordination of the fights in Europe, to develop the solidarity and the support to the specific fights and to support the united initiatives and the callings for meetings for coordination gathering together the class-conscious trade unionists.
