Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties from Europe

From September 18-20 in Stuttgart at Clara-Zeitkin-Waldheim a conference of 9 Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations from Europe took place. The participants were: the Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain M-L (RCPB/ML), the Communist Party of Denmark M-L (DKP/ML), the Communist Workers Party of France (PCOF), the Organization of M-L Communists of Greece (OKMLG), the Communist Party of Ireland M-L (CPI/ML), the Communist Party of Sweden (KPS), the Communist Party of Spain M-L (PCE/ML) and the Revolutionary Communist Party of Turkey (TDKP).

The goal of the conference was to discuss the possibilities of joint struggle against the "United Europe" and the Treaty of Maastricht, a closer working together of the Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations and the initiative for a summer youth camp in 1993.

The following results were achieved:

In order to support the struggle against a Europe of the monopolies, there should be an exchange of all materials and the results of investigations among the Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations. Possibilities should be sought by which the joint struggle of the workers of Europe can be developed against the concrete effects on Europe such as deterioration of working conditions, transferring and reduction of work positions, reduction of social services and increasing nationalism. An initiative should be taken up in the trade unions to strengthen the united struggle on an all-European plane and to make possible a meeting of active colleagues who are for class struggle. The joint work of progressive colleagues on an industry-wide plane should also be developed.

Closer joint work among the Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations, through the development of the Marxist-Leninist theory, through the exchange of research work on the problems of socialism, through important ideological and political discussion on all levels will be aimed for. Further meetings will be held as necessary.

The Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations will take up the initiative, together with progressive, anti-imperialist and anti-fascist youth and youth organizations, to hold a Europe-wide summer youth camp in Germany in the end of July, 1993. Besides cultural, sports and other leisure time activities the following themes are planned as the central points: the Europe of the monopolies, the anti-fascist struggle, the danger of war and imperialism, the problems of the youth such as youth unemployment, etc., and international solidarity.

Among the participants, the conference was seen as a first successful step towards future intensive cooperation.
