In the face of the acceleration of the deportations and the germanisation politics of German imperialism we have, primarily, to propagate proletarian internationalism

In the face of the acceleration of the deportations and the germanisation politics of German imperialism we have, primarily, to propagate proletarian international ism and Communism!

OB the Co-operation of the Revolutionary Forces of Different Nationalities in Germany During the last months, the new government of the social democrats and the Greens (SPDGrüne) has accelerated the politics of the sealing off of the country and of deportation. The minister of the interior Schily outstripped his predecessor Kant her. He trumpeted that the “German boat is full” thai immigration has to he reduced “to zero,” and he accelerated and accelerates the closìng-off- and deportation laws as well as the deportation measures of his predecessors. In this, the Nazi-supported reactionary signature collection by the CDU/CSU against the SPD/Green government’s project of ‘double citizenship’ was a welcome event for the government enabling it to divert from its own actual reactionary politics İn the spirit of German nationalism. The effort of the SPD and the Greens to split the people declared as ‘foreigners’ into ‘desirables’ and ‘undesirables’ have not been without effect. This is reason enough not to get stuck in a discussion of juridical details, and instead of this to develop a principled Communist point of view concerning the revolutionary perspective and the revolutionary co-operation of the workers of different nationalities in Germany. This is possible only on the basis of the recognition of tiie also existing progressive aspects of the modern migration of liations.possible uuly in the struggle against all varieties of the chauvinist incorporation politics carried out by various psetidorevolutmnary organisations towards the workers from other countries.

Reasons for the existence of a Communist Party İn every area of work on the basis of proletarian internationalism It would be a mistake to get enmeshed İn the pseudopolitical details spread by the various political departments of German imperialism ami its propagandists. On the contrary, it is necessary to begin our treatment of questions concerning “double citizenship,” Germany as an immigration country or other, similar matters not in detail, but from the perspective of the struggle against capitalism, the struggle for its overthrow by theproletari an revolution.

In an imperialist country, in an imperialist big power such as Germany, the division of the world into oppressing countries andoppressed countries, which already existedbefore ıheadventofİmperialİsm,isthe basic starting point for reflecting on – as well as clarifying and propagating-thef act timi the Communist point of view is the point of view of the oppressed toiling masses of all countries, especially the point of view of the workers of all countries. The struggle against capitalism, the struggle for the overthrow of imperialism immediately implies theslogan “Workers of all countries, unite” as well as the slogan ‘”Workers of all counties and oppressed peoples, unite!” In general, the world-wide system of capitalism and imperialism must be overthrown and destroyed by the victory of the proletarian world revolution.
It is by no means a diversion from the questions concerning the co-operation of the workers of all nationalities in Germany when we start out will) the following clarification: When Lenin and Stalin proved from the Communist point of view that, on the basis of proletarian internationalism, a Communist Party must he built in every area, this was rooted very deeply in the whole process of the proletarian world revolution, its stages, developments and peculiarities. The basic principle is the co-operation of the Communist Parties in ijuestion. be it in the frame of an international organisation such as the Communist International or in oilier forms of co-operation.
From adeeper point of view, there are primarily two reasons for the autonomous existence of a Communist Party in every area of work:

F’itsijhe law ofÛıc irregular economicaiidpoliiical development of the various countries of the imperialist worldsyslem. Became of this law, the development of the revolutions in the various countries will always be irregular, not occurring at thesame ti nie.The proletarian revolution is, therefore, not a simultaneous act, but instead, because of the ripening process of the contradictions of imperialism, ¡lie world front of imperialism will crack first in the country which represents the weakest chain link at that moment.
Second, in order to raise the consciousness of the majority of the working class in one’s own country and to organise this majority, we need, not only principled and strategiceffnrts. but also a huge amount(…)
