The role of the Communist Party

Role of CP pamphlet CoverThe Communist Party believes that socialist revolution and the construction of a fundamentally new type of society to replace capitalism is essential for the future of humanity and our planet.

 In all three countries of Britain, capitalism has become a barrier to balanced economic development, environmental security, social justice and meaningful democracy. The big business profit system has to be replaced by a new system – socialism – based on mass participation in decision making, social ownership of the economy, democratic planning and solidarity.

But fundamental change will also require a transfer of political power, taking it out of the hands of a small number of monopoly capitalists whose interests dominate our society.

Such a revolutionary process will have to be led by the working class – the producers of society's wealth – at the head of an alliance of forces representing the interests of the people as a whole.

What is the role of the Communist Party in helping to achieve a socialist society in England, Scotland and Wales? Why is a strong and influential Communist Party essential for victory?

This pamphlet aims to stimulate discussion and understanding of the unique role that only a communist party can play. It divides into four distinct but inter-related sections, each of which can form the basis for a political education session or class.

Britain and the EU

This pamphlet ends with a warning. The EU’s imposition of neo-liberal policies on all governments, including those led by the traditional parties of the Left, has resulted in the collapse of support for social democracy. In the coming referendum voters will be asked to support an even more neo-liberal and probusiness EU. Politically, such an outcome would pose an additional danger that Cameron would use it to argue that the electorate has voted in support of the EU’s so-called free market policies and therefore against Labour’s programme for public ownership and enhanced public spending.
