Joint Statement of Communist and Workers’ Parties: In the name of freedom, peace and truth — against fascism and war

The victory over Nazi-fascism in the Second World War is a major event in History, the memory of which must be preserved and defended in the face of repeated attempts at historical falsification aimed at making us forget the decisive role played by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, by the communists and by anti-fascists from around the world.

Generated by capitalism, Nazi-fascism was the most violent and terroristic manifestation of monopoly capital. It was responsible for the outbreak of this war of aggression and plunder that caused close to 75 million deaths, of which approximately 27 million were Soviet citizens, and for the immeasurable suffering and horror of the Nazi concentration camps. The peoples can also not forget dark pages, such as the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the USA, without any military justification, which represented a display of power and of their world-wide hegemonistic ambitions.

The Second World War (1939-1945) was the result of increasingly acute inter-imperialist contradictions and, at the same time, of the intention to destroy the first Socialist State, the USSR, which was namely expressed in the support and connivance of the United Kingdom, France and the United States with the rearmament and expansionist ambition of Nazi Germany.

In commemorating the 75th anniversary of the historic Victory on  May 9, 1945, the undersigned communist and workers’ parties, certain in the knowledge that they portray the feelings and aspirations of workers and peoples from all over the world:

– Pay tribute to all those who gave their lives on the battlefields against the Nazi-fascist hordes and in particular to the heroism of the resistance movements and anti-fascist fighters and to the heroic Soviet people and Red Army, led by the Communist Party, whose contribution, written in heroic pages such as the battles of Moscow, Leningrad and Stalingrad, was decisive for the Victory over barbarism;

– Consider that the Victory over Nazi Germany and its allies in the Anti-Comintern Pact was achieved thanks to the decisive contribution of the USSR, to the class nature of the Soviet power with the participation of the masses of the people, to the leading role of the Communist Party, to the superiority which was displayed by the Socialist system. That victory is an enormous historical legacy of the revolutionary movement;

– Value the outstanding advances in the social and national emancipation of the workers and peoples that the Victory and the resulting advancement of the forces of social progress and peace made possible, extending the sphere of socialism within the countries of Europe, Asia and Latin America, creating the conditions for the advance of the labour movement in capitalist countries, the sweeping development of the national liberation movement and the resulting liquidation of colonial empires;

– Denounce and condemn the campaigns that aim to belittle, distort and even deny, the role of the USSR and of the communists in the defeat of Nazi-fascism and also to unjustly and falsely blame the Soviet Union for starting the Second World War, to expunge the responsibilities of big capital and the governments at its service in the promotion and rise of fascism and in unleashing the war, and whitewash and rehabilitate fascism, while destroying the monuments and memory of the liberating Soviet army, promoting anti-communism and criminalizing communists and other anti-fascists;

– Denounce and condemn the EU’s anti-communist resolutions and the slanderous historical falsification which attempts to equate socialism with the fascist monster;

– Warn that the most reactionary and aggressive sectors of imperialism are increasingly viewing  fascism and war as a “way out” of the deepening crisis of the capitalist system, whose inhuman character becomes particularly obvious when, even in the face of the very serious epidemic outbreak of Covid-19, imperialism, the USA, NATO, the EU and its allies capitalist powers, continue a criminal policy of blockades and aggressions against countries and peoples;

–  Consider that the struggle for peace, social progress and socialism are inseparable; and make a commitment  to seek a stronger common action of the working class, of the workers and peoples of the world, of the political forces engaged in blocking the path to fascism and in the struggle against imperialism, imperialist aggressions and a new war of tragic proportions.

The situation with which the workers and peoples of the world are confronted underlines the importance of strengthening the struggle against imperialism, for the sovereignty of the peoples and the independence of States, for the rights of the workers and peoples, as leading forward to the revolutionary overcoming of the capitalist system, a system which breeds fascism, war, the injustices, dangers and contradictions of the present. As it was 75 years ago, it is today the struggle of the communists and all those facing capitalist exploitation and oppression that will open the way for the future for Humanity.

Joint Statement of the Central Committee, Communist Party of Australia and Central Committee, New Communist Party of Aotearoa

The visit of the Deputy Secretary of the CC NCPA, Comrade J Morgan, to Sydney, Australia to mark the 99th Anniversary of the Communist Party of Australia is the first ever visit to an international Communist Party by the NCPA, highlighting the vitality and importance placed upon the alliance of trans-Tasman Communists by both sides.

While the two Parties are and will remain independent in their efforts to apply Marxism-Leninism to national conditions and build the conditions for socialist revolution, a trans-Tasman relationship of cooperation is undeniably important. Our two countries are strongly interconnected in financial, political, military and most importantly, people-to-people ties. Any change in the social, economic or political situation on one side of the Tasman will strongly influence, the other. Therefore, Communists in both countries play close attention and give support to the other side.

The CC CPA welcomes the establishment of the NCPA and expressed its hope that the NCPA will be able to successfully lead New Zealand out of the low ebb of world socialism and re-popularise the Communist theory and Party amongst the New Zealand working class.

The CC CPA also conveyed best wishes for the First National Congress of the NCPA to be held in Wellington on November 21-22 with the theme “The 21st Century: A New Era in Social Progress”, and accepted the kind invitation to send a delegation to participate in this Congress as a sign of the friendship between our two Parties.

The CC NCPA fully supports the renewed and consolidated leadership of the CPA given the recent successes of the CC CPA in re-establishing leadership based around firm Marxist-Leninist principles. Comrade Morgan expressed the firm belief of the CC NCPA that the significant history of the CPA and its continued adherence to Marxism-Leninism meant that even after the low ebb of world socialism, the CPA is in a strong and stable position to continue its traditionally important role in the Australian workers’ movement and strengthen its ties to the masses.

Both sides fully intend to continue the current trend of high-level and frequent discussion and cooperation between the NCPA and CPA while looking for ways to further enhance a practical relationship based on mutual respect and solidarity, friendship, non-interference and cooperation under Marxist-Leninist principles of proletarian internationalism.

Long live Marxism-Leninism!

Long live proletarian internationalism!

Long live the fighting Communist Party of Australia and New Communist Party of Aotearoa!
