75 Years Victory over Fascism

ICOR resolution, 6 May 2020

 

On 8 May 1945, the Second World War ended in Europe. The Red Army of the socialist Soviet Union defeated the fascist “Third Reich“ and was the driving force for the liberation of millions in the occupied countries, concentration camps and prisons. It made the liberation of entire peoples possible and the construction of people's democracies in Eastern Europe.

On 8 May 1945, German Hitler-fascism capitulated. The 2nd World War had wreaked havoc on all continents for six years and claimed over 60 million lives, and still years after the end of World War II it left immeasurable misery and death. However, the result of the heroic struggle and victory over fascism was that the peoples in the countries under capitalist rule stepped up their struggle for national liberation against imperialism and in the countries of people's democracies intensified the struggle for building up socialism. So one-third of humanity was liberated from imperialism and capitalism and people's democracies and socialism were constructed!

For anti-communist reasons, the capitalist Western Allies had hesitated for a long time to enter this war against Hitler because they wanted the aggressive German imperialism to fight against and defeat the construction of socialism in the Soviet Union and its allies among the workers and broad masses all over the world. They had not succeeded in this with the War of Intervention from 1918 to 1920 supporting the White Terror. Again they had not reckoned with the working class and the broad masses in the Soviet Union. They struggled and defeated Hitler together with the heroic resistance of the communists and partisans of the European countries in the firm conviction of constructing socialism in their own country.

Fascism is the deadly enemy of the working class and the peoples of the world, of socialism and communism and their organizations. Imperialism and colonialism are the womb out of which fascism always emerges anew. In the lee of the present corona crisis, too, the fascist and proto-fascist governments, as in Hungary, Brazil, Israel, India and Turkey, are attempting to organize the transition to fascism or have built up a fascist system. In further imperialist countries like the USA, Germany, France or Great Britain the rightward development of the governments is also continuing to develop and has attained acceptance for proto-fascist ideas among certain parts of the population. At the head of this development is US imperialism.

In different parts of the world fascism has increased under the cover of the Corona crisis.

May 8/9, August 6 (Hiroshima) and September 1 (beginning of World War II) are the international day of struggle against fascism and war for the ICOR.

"Every nation can celebrate this day in its own way. But the essence remains the same: Down with fascism! Down with capitalist wars!" (from a call by KSRD Ukraine)

As revolutionary world organization, the ICOR promotes the socialist revolution and the construction of socialism, democracy and freedom in the entire world. Celebrating 75 years of the victory over fascism and learning from this today means putting all our efforts into strengthening the revolutionary movement in the world, as is stated in the Founding Resolution: “The desire and search for a society liberated from exploitation and oppression has to become a force for changing society which overcomes the basic evil of the imperialist world system.

Onward with the construction of the anti-imperialist and antifascist united front!

Onward with the construction of strong revolutionary parties and organizations worldwide!

Onward with the construction of the ICOR!

Onward to democracy, freedom and socialism!
