Ideological line of PR

Centralization and concentration of capital with the goal of putting the whole world under control has come into contradiction with the development of productive forces. This centralization and the present technology level are an obstacle for the further functioning of capitalism, or for further development of humanity in existing social relations. Capitalism has lost the ability to overcome its cyclical crises and to delay its collapse. These crises are fundamental and permanent.

PR opinion – Macedonia on a crossroad

makedonija i grcka 01  Communists have long taken a clear stand on the Macedonian national question and their right to defend their independence and name. Every attempt by Bulgarian, Greek and Serbian nationalists to deny the existence of a Macedonian nation was condemned. Even today communists condemn all attempts by the Balkan regimes to try to achieve their petty chauvinistic interests at the expense of the people of Macedonia, fighting on the side of imperialists.

  The question of choosing the name for the country in which to live is the question of which answer can be given only by its citizens.

  The existing agreement reached by the governments of Macedonia and Greece over the name is formally in the interest of the peoples of these countries, but it is essentially brought under the dictation of imperialists and their current interests. Of course, this dictatorship continues to pursue the rights of the Macedonian, Albanian and other masses.

  It is completely unacceptable to use the coming referendum so that the people of Macedonia officially recognize the occupation of the NATO Pact and the EU imperialists.

  We support all the progressive forces that are fighting for the freedom of Macedonia and Greece, against the NATO forces and all imperialists. It is the duty of all to break of the myth that the Balkan peoples can not resist these forces. The unity of the people of Macedonia, Greece and other peoples in the Balkans can not be built under covert chauvinism, neither under the dictates of the imperialists or the placing under the NATO boot. Only the united and equal peoples of the Balkans can free themselves from the dictatorship of capital and imperialism.

  For the unity of the Balkan peoples in resistance to imperialism!

  With Balkan resistance movement!

Central Statement 150913

Bilten-logo  PR has already been attacking the ideological position of SYRIZA due to its
devastating impact on Greece's impoverished masses. PR has supported those forces
that clearly distanced themselves from SYRIZA, or actively conducted propaganda in
Greek masses against the reformist position and capitulating.

  However, the PR considers that this ideological battle against SYRIZA is already
won, primarily due to the very practice of SYRIZA so far. On the other hand, the battle
against reformism in the Greek Left movement is not won. And it is not only a situation
in Greek Left movement.
  Moreover, the PR considers that the Greek left parties which declaratively stand
on revolutionary positions went a step back concerning the upcoming elections.
  This step back has already been made during the previous referendum when the left
parties were not sufficiently engaged in mobilization of the masses and strengthening
the opposition to SYRIZA. Now they go one further step back by participating in the
upcoming elections.

  In the current situation when the war and conflicts are approaching the Balkans,
and particularly when the parliamentary life in Greece suffered a complete defeat,
whereas the will of the people means nothing for the ruling elite, who are only servants
of big capital, any participation in the parliamentary life is nothing but capitulation
before the class enemy and imperialism.

  We believe that the decision of all those so called revolutionary organizations to
participate in these elections, is a capitulation and the direct continuation of SYRIZA
position and politics.

  PR strongly believes that there is no need for any propaganda to boycott the
elections, but only to act against the elections. And that there would be a part of the
Greek masses to support that call.

  A new fascism is rising, the alliances between imperialists are getting stronger,
the conflicts between them are already happening, while the masses started to rise up
all over the world. Therefore, those who identify themselves as revolutionaries and
communists must not advocate and support the action within and by the rules of
bourgeois parliamentary system, but they should direct masses and lead them to
oppose the system instead. Otherwise, this is not considered only a defeat, but also
historically wrong and it opens the opportunity of joining masses to fascist parties.
