The International Department of the CC of the Party of Communists, USA (PCUSA) issued the following statement concerning U.S. government's decision to include Cuba on the list of "states-sponsors of terrorism".

Concerning the January 6th events in Washington DC, the Political Bureau of the  Party of Communists, USA (PCUSA) issued the following statement:


"On January 6th, 2021, the day that Congress was set to ratify the results of the 2020 election, a far-right mob descended upon the Capitol, with the explicit goal to conduct a coup in support of Donald Trump. This mob, consisting of supporters of failed movements, such as the Confederacy, South Vietnam, and other anti-communist reactionaries, came together to support this anti-democratic, fascistic goal to install a reactionary dictatorship.

2020 Vermont Elections: Communist candidate Chris Helali steals the show at election debate

Christopher Helali, the communist-backed candidate for U.S. Representative for Vermont's at-large congressional district, had an impressive performance at the recent online debate hosted by ch17.tv.

With reasonable arguments, Helali touched the core of the issues and delivered the message that the only viable choice for the working class and the popular strata is the abolition of the capitalist system. 

Being the first communist candidate who participates in a major U.S. election since 1984, Helali expresses a consistent pro-worker, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist voice that is very much needed in U.S. politics. The working class, the farmers, the youth of the state of Vermont have every reason to vote for the Party of Communists, USA (PCUSA) candidate on November 3rd in order to strengthen their own voice against the ruling capitalist elite that dominates U.S. politics.

Party of Communists, USA: Condemns U.S. government's hostile policy against Russia

PCUSA STATEMENT ON U.S HOSTILITIES AGAINST RUSSIA.

The Party of Communists USA (PCUSA) condemns militarist efforts to isolate and harass Russia. U.S. imperialism continues to ramp up its hostility to Russia, to a point where, informed observers believe the U.S. and Russia are closer to war now more than since the overthrow of socialism in the U.S.S.R. in the early Nineties. Some even assess the hostilities to be greater than at any time since the end of World War II. The hysterical accusations grow wilder each time: Russia is accused of having shot down a Malaysian passenger jet, duped U.S. voters into electing Donald Trump, and poisoned an ex-spy, all without evidence.

This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the socialist revolution in Russia. It was the first time that the working class anywhere in the world was able to seize and hold power. The revolution grew out of the conditions of imperialism and the First World War. Russia had been ruled by a tsar, or emperor, making it one of the most reactionary regimes in Europe.

Party of Communists, USA: Statement of the PCUSA Peace and Solidarity Commission on Global War

Statement of the PCUSA Peace and Solidarity Commission on Global War.

US imperialist aggression and military preparations throughout the world are solely menacing an imminent outbreak of WWIII. All its desperate confrontational maneuvers in every embroiled theatre, whether through a growing number of European states to threaten the Russian Federation, or in Syria, Iraq or Yemen, on the Korean Peninsula or in the South China Sea threatening China, are toward that unified (rationally unthinkable) strategic objective.
