In the following we publish the theses on the character of the communist party and on the self-understanding of the communist organization, which were adopted by the KO at its fourth congress in April 2022. They represent an intermediate state of the intensive work on the question of the Kommunistische Organisation, party building and the tasks arising from it, and are still a valid resolution. In the course of the secession of a wing, the KO has gained important experiences in the struggle against revisionism concerning the structures of the organization, which are not yet reflected in the previously adopted theses. We affirm that there is currently no revolutionary communist party in Germany and that the struggle against revisionist ideas on the party question, the question of imperialism and the question of strategy is central to being able to build one. This is the aim of the Kommunistische Organisation, which we will pursue in a planned way.
We, the undersigned organizations, declare our rejection and outrage at the Berlin police’s ban on commemorations of Palestinian Prisoners’ Day on the weekend, 15 – 17 April. This ban is an attack not only on the Palestinian and Arab community in Berlin and supporters of Palestine, it is a threat targeting all of our freedom of expression. Beyond this, it is an attempt to silence support for the 4800 Palestinian prisoners themselves, struggling from beyond colonial bars for their freedom.
Contribution by Thanasis Spanidis - The correct analysis of imperialism is one that understands the imperialist world system as a hierarchical order of mutual but asymmetrical dependencies, as an imperialist pyramid.
The war in Ukraine is an imperialist war between Ukraine - backed by NATO - and the Russian Federation. This war is not our war, and the international working class cannot and must not take sides. Our main task as communists in Germany is to fight against the war policy of NATO and German imperialism and to expose their war propaganda.
The congress thus marks both a break and a continuity with the KO that existed before. However, we are not a new organisation, but continue seamlessly with everything that KO has done right since its founding in 2018.
Anhand der verschiedenen Positionen zur Lage in Kasachstan innerhalb der IKB meinen wir, Auseinandersetzungen und Fragen zu erkennen, die auf einer allgemeinen Ebene, nämlich auf der Ebene des Verständnisses der internationalen Lage und des imperialistischen Weltsystems, liegen. Es handelt sich um wichtige Fragen der kommunistischen Weltanschauung.
