Declaration of Principle



The editorial board of  Teoria & Prassi  (Theory and Praxy) review and the 
Circolo Lenin (Lenin Group) of Catania, in their meeting of February 2008 have 
decided to merge and give birth to Piattaforma Comunista  (Communist Platform).


The main task of Piattaforma Comunista  is the theoretical and political 
struggle for the formation (making), in our country, of a strong communist 
party, as a working class, independent, revolutionary, political party. A party 
which must be the fighting, organized and conscious vanguard working class 
sector, able to gain such an acknowledgement thanks to the struggle and daily 
work, the development of all the theoretical and practical aspects, the 
effective capacity of steering and guiding  the masses into victory in the 
proletarian revolution and the construction of socialism, in the conditions of 
proletariat dictatorship, up to the classless society, communism.


To this end, Piattaforma Comunista takes as its aim to stimulate the 
unification of all true communists and vanguard workers, organizations, groups, 
(circles), who are consistently on the revolutionary positions of 
marxism-leninism, in order to overcome fragmentation and sectionalism, in the 
active conditions for the reconstruction of a strong communist party.


In order to fulfil these tasks and achieve such aims, Piattaforma Comunista 
will firmly base itself on the working class, the union of working class 
movement with the communist movement, the organization of advanced workers, 
young revolutionaries, intellectuals who are resolute in breaking with 
bourgeoisie and uniting to proletariat.


Piattaforma Comunista stands in continuity with the best struggling, 
ideological, political traditions of the communist and working class movement 
in our country: from Antonio Labriola to Antonio Gramsci, from the foundation 
of  P.C.d’I. (Communist Party of Italy) in Livorno in 1921 (which has been the 
working class revolutionary vanguard party) to the victorious Resistance 
against nazi-fascism, from the battle against Togliatti’s revisionism to the 
right decision to build P.C.d’I. (m-l) in 1966, up to the half-a-century 
struggle carried out by marxist-leninists to raise the banner of revolution, 
socialism and the reconstruction of the party against the spreading of 
revisionism and opportunism.


Piattaforma Comunista acknowledges and defends the practical experience, 
concepts and lines thanks to which the international working class and 
communist movement has conquered great victories, from Marx’s International to 
Paris’s Commune, from the period of formation of the communist movement in the 
II International to the October Socialist Revolution, from the III Communist 
International to the building of socialism in U.S.S.R., from the victory 
against nazi-fascism to the building of the socialist field, from Cominform to 
the struggle against modern revisionism (which was officially adopted at the XX 
Congress of P.C.U.S. in 1956) up to the present International Communist 
Movement and its most advanced and consistent expression, the International 
Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (I.C.M.L.P.O.).


Piattaforma Comunista defends and continues these glorious traditions and 
experiences of struggle, going on with the struggle against imperialism and 
reaction, religious obscurantism, revisionism, opportunism,, reformism, 
economism, spontaneous political activism, adventurism, militarism and all the 
other deviations from marxism-leninism.


Piattaforma Comunista raises the banner of proletarian internationalism, 
struggling above all against its “own” imperialism, adopts “Quito Declaration”  
as an ideological-political basis for the international communist movement, 
acknowledges the line and activity of  I.C.M.L.P.O. and intends to develop 
brotherly relations with communist parties and organizations all over the 


Piattaforma Comunista takes as a guide for its own action the marxist-leninist 
principles and values which must be applied to the practical situation and 
acknowledges the historical and dialectic materialism conception of the world, 
as it has been defined and developed by Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin, for the 
complete unity in the ideological field and the vanguard theory steady progress.


On the basis of the Plan of general programme, the Programme of action and its 
work in the various fronts of class struggle, Piattaforma Comunista will help 
in clarifying, developing and making always more concrete the ideological, 
political, programmatic and organizational prerequisites

of the future communist party, consistently with the ideological and political 
line, the strategic indications, the analyses and positions stated in issues 7 
to 18 of Teoria & Prassi, in the pamphlets and other documents adopted in the 
formation meeting.


The organizational guide principle of Piattaforma Comunista is democratic 
centralism, included in its set of rules. It is  an active group of militants, 
able to strictly tie theory to social practice, to develop an adequate 
communist political initiative, proposals of struggle and organization, among 
the masses and their structures, taking active part in the fight between social 
classes in order to make the revolutionary forces indispensable to the 
attainment of the strategic aims: achievement of political power by the 
proletariat and its allies, for the construction of socialist society.  


Piattaforma comunista considers it as fundamental the preparation and the 
continuous theoretical and political improvement of its own militants. 
Piattaforma Comunista’ official organs are the theoretical review Teoria & 
Prassi, the political journal Scintilla (Spark) and its  web site (at present  
at this address:


Piattaforma Comunista asks communists and the proletariat most advanced and 
fighting part  to join Piattaforma Comunista; it addresses the true communists 
who still support the social democratic and opportunist parties of  bourgeois 
left so that they take note of reality and act consequently, breaking neatly 
and definitively with these parties and making propaganda for this breaking 
among their rank-and-file members, in order to lead  together with the 
marxist-leninists the struggle for the reconstruction of the communist party 
and for proletarian socialism.
