Overview of political activities of RCPB(ML)
Submitted to the Electoral Commission for the year 2020

The Party continued its work on the basis of its general line and programme for this period of its work set out at its 4th Congress held in 2003, and on the basis of its overall line laid down at the 3rd Congress in 1999.

The main work of the Party is concerned with the urgent need for a change in direction of society and the economy. This requires the democratic renewal of the political process and institutions, and there is the consequent need for the Party to mobilise the working class and people to take up this task. The cutting edge of this work at the present time is the challenge to bring into being an anti-war government in Britain with a modern democratic personality. This is a profound conception encompassing a government which is also pro-social and pro-worker. Out of the resistance struggles of society, and guided by the theory of Modern Communism, will come the outlook of the New. This is a new framework which has fidelity to the ensemble of human relations, and recognises that the need for political power is indispensable. It is an internationalist framework, working to bring into being a world of socialised humanity.

The political work of the Party in intervening in the life of the country in 2020 has been dominated by the Covid-19 crisis. In this regard, the Party took the stand that this crisis was exacerbating the crisis characterised by paying the rich and cutting investments in social programmes. The solution, therefore, that it has encouraged the working class to take up is that of speaking in their own name, not to return to the old normal, but to implement its own programme and agenda, and rally the people, to change the direction of the economy.

The crisis has underlined that it is also necessary for the communist movement to develop its theoretical work, and has demonstrated that the “covenant thesis” on which the old political system is based, with “representatives” authorised to speak in the name of the electorate, is disempowering the people.

RCPB(ML) utilised the new forms given rise to by the crisis in its work. It also placed an important focus on improving the content and extending the readership of its online newspaper “Workers’ Weekly” in these circumstances.

The Party and its supporters continued their efforts to intervene in the important movements of the working class and people and support the struggles in defence of the rights of all. It also continued to pay attention to its internationalist duties, including strengthening its ties in the international communist movement.
