Liverpool Public Meeting



As the post-war accumulation cycle was coming to an end, capitalist states of the West and the East alike were facing a crisis of stagnation. They responded in the only way they could: by extracting more and more value out of the working class and reducing its share of national product. In practice this meant layoffs, unemployment, deskilling, reduced job security, lower wages and higher prices for basic necessities.

Whoever You Vote For... The Bosses Still Win!

Once again the working class is being urged to play a part in keeping up the pretence that electing M.P.s can provide us with a better future. This is a lie that we need to resist.

Oxford Public Meeting



Sheffield Public Meeting


Evidence of the crisis threatening the entire planet is increasingly stark. Desertification, flooding, hurricanes and cyclones, uncontrolled forest fires all destroy the very basis of life for the "women and men of no property" - the worldwide working class. This, of course, is massively increased by the spreading "wars without end". Whole communities are forced to migrate while the bosses' states raise barriers and walls.

London Public Meeting


From Iran to Mexico, a rising tide of strike actions across the globe shows that class resistance to the horrors of capitalism is still the "spectre that haunts" the capitalist class.

At the same time we are also encouraged by the appearance of new militants attracted to the ideas of Internationalist Communism — the only alternative to the abyss towards which capitalism is dragging the entire planet.

London CWO Meeting

Lessons of the German Revolution

Public Meeting/Discussion organised by the Communist Workers’ Organisation

On November 9 1918 the soldiers, sailors and workers of Kiel and Wilhelmshaven rose in revolt at the continuation of a war which had brought nothing but death, disease and food shortages. Within hours the Kaiser was overthrown and workers’ councils sprang up all over Germany in imitation of those that had taken power in Russia only a year earlier.

Manchester Meeting 'Trade Wars to Military Wars'

The meeting will take place on Saturday the 29th Sept from 1pm to 5pm at the Friends Meeting House (room F18) 6 Mount Street, Manchester M2 5NS, which is just behind the central library near Manchester Town Hall.

There will be a short introduction that provides an overview of 20th century wars and their underlying economic and social conditions as these changed from the 19th into the 20th century with a reference to the Marxian analysis of the 'formal and real domination of capital', with plenty of time for discussion.

Demonstration and Strike of Peroni Workers at Tor Sapienza (Rome)

On February 29th we (comrades from the CWO and Battaglia Comunista) were at the solidarity demonstration with the warehouse workers of the Italian-Japanese company Peroni in Tor Sapienza, Rome. The workers there are carrying on a bitter struggle for better working conditions which started with a week-long strike.

The Current Crisis and the Tasks of Communists

Perspectives for the CWO as discussed in its AGM, November 2019


Capitalism, the most dynamic mode of production in history, has created a world economy and the material means (productive forces) to support the present world population of 7.7bn. Everyone could be living comfortably without hunger or undue toil. In short, the material basis already exists for a peaceful, prosperous, world community based on production to directly meet the needs of everyone rather than the generation of profit for a tiny few.

May Day Repression in Turin

In Turin the repression began in the early morning, with the charges of the first No Tav [1] demonstrators present. Standing firm but with reduced ranks, it ended with two of the injured being sent to the hospital. Many No Tav demonstrators, for the occasion, also wore a T-shirt depicting Aldrovandi [2], probably not appreciated by those who have embarked on a career in bourgeois state security.

No War But The Class War (NWBCW)

Internationalist communists oppose every war that the capitalist class and their governments create to defend their own selfish interests. This position is nothing new but is the legacy from previous generations who saw that "War or Revolution" is a choice that has to be made clearly and consistently.

Covid-19 Exposes the Irrationality of Capitalism

The realities of life under Covid-19 lockdown, whatever the specifics, are strange. Over the last two months or so, many of us will have seen empty shelves in supermarkets where once-familiar products like flour, eggs, soap and toilet roll are seemingly in short supply. Is this because there are not enough of these products being produced? Have the supply lines broken down, so that existing products aren’t reaching the shelves? Are customers buying these things in a panic, leading to temporary shortages? Are speculators buying them, to sell at a profit later?

May Day 2020: Against the Virus that is Capitalism

The world proletariat has in the past celebrated May Day in some dramatic situations: from the imperialist world wars which forced workers to kill, die and produce for their class enemy — their own capitalist class — to the many occasions when the ruling class has unleashed its repressive machine to crush those struggles aimed at making exploitation less onerous, and the chains of the bosses’ oppression a little less heavy.

Scrubs: The Story from the Bottom Up

We have received this letter from the Haringey Solidarity Group and republish it here as it presents a working class perspective on the current PPE scandal, against the bosses' propaganda.
Regarding the call for "fair wages" in the final paragraph however, we must repeat that our emancipation as a class can only be achieved through the abolition of the wages system, not redistribution.

International Workers' Memorial Day: We Don't Want To Die For Your Profits!

International Workers’ Memorial Day is observed every year on 28th April in countries on every continent, to commemorate workers killed and injured through their work. This year, as many countries across the world are in some form of lockdown, the commemorations are likely to be few, while the number of dead is rising rapidly.

The Pandemic and the Crisis

From Intransigence, publication of Internationalist Communists in North America.



At least 70,000 workers from 45 factories—including tens of thousands of auto parts and assembly workers at companies that supply GM, Ford and Fiat-Chrysler—have launched a wildcat strike in the US-Mexico border town of Matamoros.

The strike is a rebellion against both the “maquiladora” manufacturing corporations and the pro-company trade unions. Over 1 million workers endure low wages and sweatshop conditions at the 3,000 “maquiladora” factories that line the Mexican side of the border and account for 65 percent of Mexican exports. It looks like it has the potential to escalate.

China has detained student organisers and factory workers in at least three cities as a crackdown against labour protests spreads across the country. Security forces stormed student and worker dormitories in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen on Friday night, according to student activists, taking away five university students, three workers in Guangdong province, as well as several employees at a Shenzhen-based labour rights organisation.
