ICP, 2 May 2018
The Initiative of Communist and Workers' Parties of Europe (ICWP) released a statement which it saluted the 132 years of struggle of working class against the capitalist exploitation. The Communist Initiative underlined that the May Day is not just a day of remembrance but a day of responsibility for each worker to figure out how to participate the class struggle in his/her sector and workplace. It is also reminded that Workers' May Day is a great chance to evaluate force, organization, will to fight and ideological awakeness of the working class.
In the statement of the ICWP, it is pointed out that while contradictions between different monopolies and their political and ideological advocates are increasing, their attack against working class occurs in collaboration as they seek for the reduction in the wage of labor power and elimination of many great achievements and gains of the working class. On the other hand, it's stated, that the working class has its own weapons in the clash with the exploiters and their political parties.
The Initiative reminded that rights such as working for fewer hours, increase in wages, the rise in living and intellectual standards, free and promoted healthcare and education and housing for all is possible today. It's a duty to increase the power of the Communist Parties to create a society which such rights exist.
