Drive forward in the long term communist work in the enterprises!
“On the first of May, the struggle day of the working class, since more than J 50 years a que stion imposes itself with growing intensity, name ly, whether there is an alternative to the profit based system of capitalism, to exploitation and to the private ownership of factories and the means of production generally. Today, the goal of com munism is being ridiculed as “utopian ” by many.
The possibility of a victory over capital by means of the dictatorial repression of the bourgeoisie and ali reactionaries by the majority of the wor kers in order to abolish the exploitation of man by man is being dismissed as a chimera. For the com munist forces of today, it is clear that to stick to these goals does not only mean to denounce and unmask the crimes of the capitalist system and not only to elaborate the perspective of socialism and communism as realistically as possible, but also to lead a hard, systematic long-term struggle in order to win a solid majority in the enterprises for the struggle for the preparation and execution of the socialist revolution. But the struggle to win over the majority of the working class means to begin and continue the struggle for the creation of communist cells in the enterprises in a systematic and methodical manner.” In the section “On the large enterprises in the system of capitalist-imperialist Germany”, the leaflet expounds the fact (among other facts) that of the about 5 Million workers that make up the urban proletariat, about 2 million work in industrial enterprises with more that 1000 employees, and about 1 million in large enterprises with more that 10,000 employees. Apart from a knowledge of the numerical distribution of the proletariat in the enterprises, there are, however, additional criteria that enable the communist forces to evaluate the situation in the enterprises realistically, and from there, to determine the enterprises in which, above all others, communist work in the factories has to be done and in which of them the most progressive forces must be won for the Communist Party and communist cells within the enterprise must be built:
‘First, we must be aware of the fact that in certain large enterprises the exploitation centres of German financial capital have their headquar ters. That means that large parts of their employ ees are not workers at all, but often corruptible or already bribed elements who organise and co ordinate the world-wide exploitation by German financial capital.
Second, we must analyse the struggle traditions of the enterprises in question, but also the defeats, especially as a result of the activities of the worker’s aristocracy, of the opportunists, and of the union leadership within and outside of the enterprises …” In the section “Basic problems of the communist work in the enterprises, which is – we should remember – not first of all union work”, the leaflet elaborates some principles and angles for the communist work in the enterprises:
“_ pfe must recognize the particular tasks of the work among the workers from other countries of origin. It is particularly important to lead a struggle against ali forms of German chauvinism as well as against the particularly brutal exploi tation of workers from other countries of origin.(…)
