Communist Party of Britain The Welsh Communist Party understands that people are feeling battered and bruised by the Covid-19 crisis. Many are bereaved. It’s a tough time – and tougher for some than for others. We also understand that important lessons have been learned. People want more control over their lives and their communities.

Sewell Commission falls at first hurdle

Communist Party of Britain Tony Conway, convenor of the Communist Party Anti-Racist Anti-Fascist Commission writes, “The Sewell led Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities which reported on 31 March one day prior to the traditional April Fools’ Day was always likely to be a smokescreen and it proved to be so. This was the Government’s response to the mass young working-class black-led demonstrations during the summer of 2020. It has certainly come up short and has rightly been condemned by a wide number of anti-racist and civil society groups. This…

The CP opposed the most recent Immigration Act (2020) as anti-working class and because it embeds inequality in Immigration and Nationality legislation. The CP supports the call to allow unregulated citizens to have access to healthcare, including Covid 19 care, without fear of detention or…

Bristol – “mount a sustained and coordinated response”.

Communist Party of Britain The many hundreds of people out on the streets of Bristol, demonstrating their anger against the Crime and Policing Bill, is the natural response to what is seen as a massive growth in the power of the police and the state attempting to silence those fighting for justice, says Bristol, Bath and Gloucester Communist Party. The violence that has erupted at these demonstrations has far more to do with the police tactics adopted, than any irrational behaviour; and the fact that the police response was very…

Communists warn of growing threat to freedoms

Communist Party of Britain “Despite his reputation as a ‘Tory libertarian’, Boris Johnson’s government is now attacking democratic freedoms on a scale that cannot be justified by the Covid emergency”, Alex Gordon told a meeting of the Communist Party’s political committee on Wednesday evening (March 24).  He pointed to the Police & Crime and ‘Spycops’ Bills currently going through the Westminster parliament as examples of the growing centralisation and empowerment of the state and its police and intelligence services.  ‘They are part of a longer-term trend since 1979, from anti-trade…
