We are a communist political organization based in the U.S. empire. We are committed to building a people's movement capable of leading a global socialist revolution in transition to communism. This socialist revolution will overthrow and abolish the global system of capitalist-imperialism, liberate the masses of workers and all oppressed peoples, and establish the foundations for the development of communism: a classless, stateless, decolonized, feminist, ecological, and democratic society. To achieve these objectives, we work to build people's mass organizations, defense organizations, and revolutionary party organizations in all areas of social life, and to unite these disparate forms of struggle as a system of counterpower capable of challenging the capitalist state for hegemony and leading the socialist transition to communism. Our organization has been established as a catalyst and defender of this revolutionary project. Workers and oppressed peoples of the world, unite!

A Cadre Organization

The word cadre comes from the French word for "framework," and generally refers to a core group of comrades who share a unifying political relationship. A cadre organization provides a general framework for the political praxis of revolutionary militants, and develops educational processes that help ensure a relative equality among all members. Minimally, we believe this organized framework should include (1) a common platform consisting of a shared analysis of the imperialist system, a vision of a communist alternative, and a strategy for waging protracted revolutionary struggle; (2) a common program of struggle that emerges from a process of social investigation, whereby cadre organizations identify potential strategic objectives and sites for the concentration of our forces; and (3) an organizational culture and style of doing politics that is collective, creative, humble, patient, accountable, and militant.

We aim to build an integrated multinational, multiracial, and intergenerational cadre organization, anchored among and loyal to the global working class, and strive to build a diverse membership reflective of the social composition of the masses of workers and oppressed peoples in this country. However, we recognize, uphold, support, and defend the formation of independent cadre organizations among communities facing specific forms of oppression (such as racial, national, ethnic, gender, sexual, and/or disability oppression), or to constitute independent revolutionary caucuses within integrated organizations. Struggles for self-determination of oppressed communities - exemplified by the Black Liberation Movement - have historically had an emancipatory effect on the communist movement, as unity in diversity can only be established on the basis of autonomy within solidarity.
