Bomb Attack in Manchester

Statement of RCPB(ML) – May 23, 2017

RCPB(ML) condemns the bomb attack at the Manchester Arena in which it is known that 22 people, including children, lost their lives and 59 were injured.

This is an horrific attack, and our Party adds its voice to all those who have expressed condolences and whose thoughts are with the victims and those affected by the explosion. The police reports are that a lone suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device at the conclusion of the pop concert, attended by many thousands of people, mostly young people in their teens. We also pay tribute to the emergency services and the ordinary people of Manchester who have demonstrated such a courageous and humanitarian response.

Election campaigning has been suspended, at least for May 23, while the government's Cobra emergency committee is meeting this morning.

While condemning the attack, whose perpetrator has yet to be named and the background to the attack explained, it is important that the people remain vigilant and oppose this and other recent attacks, such as that on Westminster Bridge, being utilised to further undermine the rule of law and bolster the call for “strong government”, exceptional measures and unfettered state and police powers in the face of a climate of anarchy and violence.

If the circumstances are used to foster a sense of hopelessness and helplessness among the people, then this too must not be allowed to succeed.

It must also be pointed out that on a daily basis in Syria, Iraq and other countries which have been destabilised by imperialist aggression and interference, many scores of people are losing their lives through this aggression. One can cite just the recent drone and missile strikes by the US in Syria with the backing of the British government which have killed many innocent civilians. These too must be condemned.

These are indeed dangerous times, and we call on the working class and people in these circumstances to be pro-active in defending the right to conscience, and working to uphold and defend the rights of all.

GENERAL ELECTION, JUNE 8
Urgent Need to Develop the Independent Politics
of the Working Class and Uphold the Rights of All!

On April 18, Prime Minister Theresa May announced her decision to call a general election on June 8. The following day a majority of MPs in the House of Commons approved this plan. Dissolution of Parliament will take place on Wednesday, May 3.

What does Prime Minister May think these elections will accomplish? Will they “secure the strong and stable leadership the country needs to see us through Brexit and beyond”, as she says? ...continued

An Invitation to the Exeter Political
Forum on the Future of Society

Saturday, May 20, 2017, 11:00 am (registration) - 5:00 pm
To participate, contact RCPB(ML) at office@rcpbml.org.uk

The times are crying out for the working class and people to take control of the future of society. This Political Forum in the West Country is one of a series taking place in cities and regions throughout Britain which are discussing this issue and what is necessary to achieve this.

RCPB(ML) invites all democratic forces and working people of all nationalities and from all walks of life, especially young people and those involved in the struggle for a change in direction of society, to participate and contribute to the discussion. Bring your views, your questions, your concerns and energise the discussion. Present your vision of a better future, a new direction.

The workers' and people's movements are affirming that the problems facing society, including the danger of war, the destruction of the manufacturing base, and the trampling on the rights of all human beings, demand resolution and that working people - youth, women, workers, the people as a whole - are the force that can bring about change.

Let us work out together how to realise a modern society and take control of the future, in a situation where what is absent today is the ability, the power, of the working class and people to take control of their lives and be the decision-makers.   Let us together discuss the concrete work and practical politics required to ensure the success of the pro-social movements of the people and remove the blocks to the progress of society.

This is the 21st century, and the times demand that an aim is set for society which is new and human-centred. Let us join together to affirm the necessity for change, change which empowers the people to gain control over their lives and work, which is their right. History is made by ordinary people achieving extraordinary things on the basis that there is an alternative!

Together let us chart a new path!

You can express your interest in participating in this programme by contacting the Revolutionary Communist Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist) at office@rcpbml.org.uk
