Solidarity message to the national conference of Workers World Party, held in Newark, New Jersey on November 18-19, 2017.
The United Communist Party of Russia sends greetings to our Workers World Party comrades across the ocean and congratulates you on the centennial of the Great October Revolution.
One hundred years ago the first victorious revolution of the proletariat in human history was made in our country. The exploitation of man by man was abolished, the rights to work, rest, housing, education, healthcare and social protection were realized. The revolution, the pride of our people, also became its historic contribution to the progress of all human civilization. The revolutionary movement began to rise around the world, communist parties were formed, and the national liberation struggle intensified, which led to the abolition of the colonial system of imperialism. The process begun by October reached its climax after World War II, when the victories of the Soviet Union led to revolutions on different continents.
Today, when the communist and left-wing movement in the world is in a phase of temporary retreat, we continue to maintain our confidence that the triumph of the counter-revolution is not eternal. It is impossible to solve the challenges facing humanity within the framework of capitalism, and the movement towards communism is inevitable. Workers of all countries, regardless of whether these countries are imperialistic, dependent or colonial, have to pass through revolutionary battles. Building on the achievements of their predecessors, including the experience of October 1917, the workers will create a society much better than it was even in the USSR. This is possible because the capital itself has created unique technological and organizational conditions for the new society which did not yet exist in the twentieth century.
We salute you and extend our hand in cooperation, friendship and solidarity.
Long live the working class!
Workers and oppressed peoples of the world unite!
Long live the world socialist revolution!
