A new website

On May Day, the Communist Party has launched, a new website. Go to

The new website is a major investment, a statement of confidence for a growing party and is a result of the work of party volunteers. It is fully geared to link in with social media. It uses the latest technologies to bring campaigning news and views, ePublication subscription, international news and Marxist education to visitors. It has a powerful databased CP members and officers area, which provides campaign resources, online meeting space, Marxist education videos/discussion areas and member-only ePublications. You will also be able to manage your own party membership with an ‘update your details’ facility.

Please add the new site to your favourites.

This website will no longer be updated and will soon point directly to the new one.

The best way to honour the memory of Lenin is to join and help strengthen the Communist Party of Britain as a proud and integral contingent of the international Communist movement.

Long live Lenin! Long live socialism! Long live Communism!
