The Norwegian communists will reorganize

Communist Platform

”The Workers’ Communist Party of Norway (AKP) has decided to dissolve itself and merge into a new, ’broad’ party* together with the Red Electoral Alliance (RV). This amalgamated party is obviously a reformist project, and those who endorse it, can no longer rightfully regard themselves as communists”, COMMUNIST PLATFORM states in a declaration issued on March 9th, and continues:

“This new party will be a party lacking communist organizational norms, and the programme only uses the term ‘communism’ as mere decoration, devoid of content. The new party programme makes it clear that Marxism, i.e. the theory of the working class, is but one among several ideological currents ‘from which the party will draw its ideology and politics’. The party will base itself on financial backing from the state, it will not have a policy of safeguarding its members, and it will be strongly focused on parliamentary work. The new party does not fully recognize that the state is an instrument of the ruling bourgeoisie class. This amalgamated party is clearly a reformist project, and those who endorse it, can no longer rightfully regard themselves as communists.

Election result: Red and green - stop or go?

Red and green lights simultaneously are normally bound to cause traffic jams and accidents.  In politics, contradictory signals and double standards are part of the game called bourgeois democracy. Those who count on a significant and radical change in the political direction of Norwegian imperialism, will soon be disappointed.

The parliamentary elections in Norway on September 12th have paved the way for a new government, consisting of a so-called Red-Green Alliance of three parties. Historically, this is a political experiment never previously tried out in Norway. The Labour Party (DNA) has never been in a coalition government with anyone, the Socialist Left Party (SV) has never been in government at all before and the Centre Party (SP), with its electoral base in the rural areas, has previously always governed with parties on its right. For the first time through the last decades, Norway now will have a majority government.

10 years of struggle for revolution and democracy

Message to the Indian journal Revolutionary Democracy

10 years of struggle for revolution and democracy

In the ten foregoing years, years comprised with much confusion and some backlashes for the revolutionary and progressive movement, the Indian journal Revolutionary Democracy (RD) has contributed greatly to shed light upon controversial historical events and crossroads of the international communist movement; hereby assisting revolutionaries in readjusting their compass amidst the turmoil created by imperialist propaganda and its revisionist aides.

By translating, republishing and reviewing newer and elder material, correspondence and publications referring to the socialist period of the Soviet Union, the RD has made this material available to a number of communists and revolutionaries worldwide. It has enabled our magazine Revolusjon to make some of these articles and sources known to progressive Norwegian readers. The RD has at the same time paid great attention to analyzing the current situation and the tasks of the revolutionaries on the Indian sub-continent, thus helping us in Europe and elsewhere to better understand the nature of, and the obstacles confronting the revolutionary process on this continent. In this way, the RD journal has played a significant role, and we believe that it will continue to do so in the years to come.

Compliments to editor Vijay Singh and the editorial board!
