The European Elections and the role of Communists

 By Nikos Mottas

“The United States of Europe, under capitalism, is either impossible or reactionary”, Lenin wrote back in 1915. 

The course of history repeatedly proved the correctness of his timeless analysis. Since its formation, the European Union – formerly ECC – has been a transnational economic, political and military alliance of imperialist characteristics, aimed at serving the interests of monopoly groups at the expense of the working class.

The Communist International, its dissolution and the international struggle of communists today

Article by the International Commission of the Kommunistische Organisation:

80 years ago, on May 15, 1943, in the midst of the Second World War and shortly after the victory of the Red Army in Stalingrad, the dissolution of the Communist International was announced. 

The dissolution of the Communist International (Comintern for short) was announced and implemented a short time later. The joint international organization of Communists, which had been founded under Lenin’s leadership and had organized, supported and coordinated the struggle of the world communist movement for 24 years, no longer existed. An equivalent replacement for it was never created again.
