This is a collaborative article with our comrades at the Revolutionary Socialist League in Kenya. The piece discusses the recent crimes perpetrated by serving British military stationed in the country, and considerations of broader human and ecological impacts from modern British neo-colonialism.
We are Red Fightback – a revolutionary Marxist‐Leninist party in Britain that is dedicated to the struggle against capitalism, imperialism, opportunism, the climate crisis, and oppressive structures that sustain and are sustained by class, such as racism, sexism, and ableism.
We exist because there is a vacuum in British revolutionary politics – there is no other communist party in Britain that fulfils all of the following key points:
- Is a Marxist-Leninist party that practices democratic centralism
- Stands up for oppressed people and groups, acknowledging the class origins of their oppression without falling into class reductionism
- Deals with abuse and complaints in a transparent, timely and effective manner
- Makes the climate crisis a priority
- Refuses to take an opportunist approach (i.e. a different set of politicians won’t fix our problems, only a different system)
- Practices true democracy amongst its members
Together, we can bring an end to capitalism and usher in a future for all of us, instead of a future intended just for businesses, business owners and the ruling classes.
