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
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: www.geocities.com/scintilla_mail).
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.
