Resolution on the societal polarization in Europe and the tasks of the ICOR

ICOR Europe, May 2016


Europe is experiencing a deep societal polarization compelling everybody to take a stand!

Ultra-reactionary and proto-fascist organizations are growing, in some cases making it into the governments. In many countries, particularly in Eastern Europe or also in Turkey/North-Kurdistan, refugees, democrats, revolutionaries and Marxist-Leninists are being hunted, and people are being incited to hatred.

The media talk about a “swing to the right“ of the masses. This is grossly simplified and falsified! Most European governments have made a swing to the right, thereby making such tendencies acceptable within the society. This is the attempt at a reactionary way out of their latent crisis and the crisis of the EU.

The other side of the polarization is: in many countries we are experiencing a progressive reversal of mood among the masses. In France hundreds of thousands are fighting every week against the reactionary job market reforms of the social-democratic Hollande government – while drawing a strict dividing line to the Front Nationale (FN). In Macedonia thousands are taking to the streets every day against the corrupt and ultra-nationalist government. In Belgium ten-thousands of workers are fighting against the government policy. In Germany trade-union consciousness has awakened on a broad front. Millions in Europe are taking to the streets against fascism and racism, for solidarity with refugees, women's rights and the interests of the working class and the youth. The search for a societal alternative is growing.

In this situation the revolutionaries and the Marxist-Leninists in Europe, the ICOR Europe must take the lead in the progressive, democratic, anti-fascist, trade-union movements, in the struggle of the women and the youth and become tangible for the masses as a societal alternative. The societal polarization is the hour of the revolutionaries.

The ICOR Europe rejects that the Balkan countries, the North African countries or now even Turkey have been declared to be so-called “safe countries of origin“. It denounces the demagogic division in so-called “economic refugees“ and political and war refugees.

The ICOR Europe attacks the imperialist politics as being responsible for the causes of flight and denounces: the ruling class is fighting against the refugees and not against the causes of flight!

It is one of the most basic tasks of proletarian internationalism to fight for the democratic right of asylum for all oppressed people on an anti-fascist basis and to join with the oppressed refugees and asylum seekers. The ICOR Europe promotes that the working class understands itself as an international class and does not accept being divided for nationalist, ethnic or religious reasons!

Now is the time in which the construction of revolutionary and Marxist-Leninist parties is a top priority and the leading factor in the work. Let us work for creating revolutionary parties everywhere in Europe, strengthening them sustainably and working together closely in party building and class struggle and supporting each other mutually.

  • Workers of all countries, unite!

  • Workers of all countries and all oppressed, unite!

  • Workers, women, rebellious youth, environmentalists, supporters of just liberation struggles: Join the ICOR and its member organizations!
