The Party continued its work
on the basis of its general line and programme for this period of its work set
out at its 4th Congress held in 2003, and on the basis of its overall line laid
down at the 3rd Congress in 1999.
The work of the Party is concerned with the urgent need for
a change in direction of society and the economy. This requires the democratic
renewal of the political process and institutions, and there is the need for
the Party to mobilise the working class and people to take up this task. The
cutting edge of this work at present is the challenge to bring into being an
anti-war government in Britain with a modern democratic personality. This is a
profound conception encompassing a government which is also pro-social and
pro-worker. Out of the resistance struggles of society, and guided by the
theory of Modern Communism, will come the outlook of the New. This is a new
framework which has fidelity to the ensemble of human relations, and recognises
that the need for political power is indispensable. It is an internationalist
framework, working to bring into being a world of socialised humanity.
The political work of the Party in intervening in the life
of the country in 2022 has been carried out in this framework that the old
forms and institutions have become obsolete, but the necessary new forms and
institutions for empowering the people are not yet in being. In this regard,
the solution that it has encouraged the working people to take up is that of
speaking in their own name. The movement of the working people to say that
Enough Is Enough has been transforming the consciousness that
working people themselves have the solution to the crisis. With the conflict in
the Ukraine, the Party has emphasised that the main blow of the anti-war
movement must be against NATO and its provocations. Meanwhile, the Party has
taken the opportunity to campaign against the obsolete and corrupt monarchy and
the need to complete the democratic revolution.
The crisis has underlined that it is also necessary for the
communist movement to develop its theoretical work, and has demonstrated that
the covenant thesis on which the old political system is based,
with representatives authorised to speak in the name of the
electorate, is disempowering.
It also placed an important focus on improving the content
and extending the readership of its online newspaper Workers
Weekly in these circumstances.
The Party and its supporters continued their efforts to
intervene in the important movements of the working class and people and
support the struggles in defence of the rights of all. It also continued to pay
attention to its internationalist duties, including strengthening its ties in
the international communist movement.
