100 YEARS NOVEMBER REVOLUTION IN GERMANY – The International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and organisations

Message of CIPOML – The International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and organisations – to Arbeit-Zukunft, Germany, on the occasion of the centennary of the 1918 November revolution

In the great epic of the struggles of the international working class the November revolution 1918 of the German workers and revolutionaries holds its own prominent place as a heroic attempt to realise the ideals of the working class and socialism of a society, and indeed a future, without exploitation, exploiters or exploited.

Protesting the barbarous imperialist war going on since 1914, the hunger and misery, and intent on ending it by establishing another social system, the call for revolution sounded from Kiel. Workers’ and soldiers’ councils were established in many places. Only days later, on November 9th 1918, the socialist republic was proclaimed in Berlin.

The German workers chose the road of revolution having experienced the blatant betrayal of the old Social Democratic party that sided with its own bourgeosie, its own capitalists, during the first world war. The conditions for revolution were ripe, the revolutions of 1917 in Russia set the example. The defeat of the Emperor in the war signalled the end of the monarchy itself.

The times at the end of the world war and the first years after the victorious October revolution in Russia were dramatic. The war redrew the map of Europe and brougt an end to four empires – Russia, Austria-Hungary, Germany and the Ottoman empire. Great workers’ movements and socialist revolutions were knocking on the doors of capitalism.

A new page in German history was opened when the sailors in Kiel refused to continue the imperialist war, raised the red flag and turned their weapons against the officers.

The November revolution, that engaged millions in the struggle to overthrom the rulers and the ruling class, would – If succesfull – mean a mortal threat to the entire capitalist world order. It showed that revolution and socialism was not only a question raised in more backward countries, but directly in the heartlands of capitalism and imperialism.

Along with the great lessons of the succesfull October revolution in Russia the revolution in Germany inspired and assisted the formation of the revolutionary labour, socialist and communist movement at the time. The study of the unfolding and the fate of this revolution still provide important lessons for the revolutionaries.

The defeat of this great attempt at revolution came about not as a result of lack of support of the workers or from lack of popular support in general. It was a genuine workers’ revolution, a popular uprising with the support of the class and the popular strata – and evidence of the proletariant revolutionary character and aspirations of the German working class. It was brutally repressed, also by murdering its two outstanding leaders Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg.

Social democracy, opportunism and reaction would exploit its weaknesses to prevent its victory. But the November revolution provided a valuable heritage of the German working class in its struggle throughout the last century untill now and deserves to be studied also today.

One major reason why the objectives of the revolution were not achieved and of its suppression was the lack of a strong revolutionary workers’ party, of a leninist party able to lead it. The struggle to create and sustain such a party is an ongoing struggle and the first condition for the victory of the revolution and the construction of socialism.This is rightly also at the center of the struggle of the communist revolutionaries today. The heroic November revolution of 1918 in Germany remains a valuable lesson.

The International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organisations greets the celebration of this centennary, organised by the German member of the Conference – Arbeit-Zukunft. We wish you new successes in the building of a genuine Marxist-Leninist Party in Germany, upholding an carrying on further the red banner of the great revolutionary struggle in Germany, continuing the work of Marx and Engels, Karl and Rosa, and countless other revolutionaries.

LONG LIVE THE STRUGGLE OF THE GERMAN WORKING CLASS FOR REVOLUTION AND SOCIALISM!

GLORY TO MARXISM-LENINISM!

100 ÅRET FOR NOVEMBERREVOLUTIONEN I TYSKLAND – Til Arbeit-Zukunft, Tyskland

Af de europæiske medlemspartier i CIPOML – Den Internationale konferencen af marxistisk-leninistiske partier og organisationer

De tyske arbejderes og revolutionæres november-revolution indtager sin egen fremtrædende plads i den internationale klassekamps historie som et heroisk forsøg på at virkeliggøre arbejderklassens og socialismens idealer – skabelsen af et samfund og en fremtid uden udbytning, uden udbyttere og uden udbyttede.

I protest mod den barbariske imperialistiske krig siden 1914, mod sult og elendighed og fast besluttet på at stoppe den ved at indføre et andet samfundssystem lød fra Kiet råbet om revolution. Arbejder- og soldaterråd blev etableret mange steder, og nogle få¨dage senere – den 9. november 1918 – blev den socialistiske republik udråbt i Berlin.

De tyske arbejdere valgte revolutionens vej, da de oplevede det gamle socialdemokratiske partis åbenlyse forræderi, da det stillede sig sammen med sit eget borgerskab, sine egne kapitalister, i første verdenskrig. Betingelserne for en revolution var modne. De russiske revolutioner i 1917 havde givet eksemplet. Kejserens nederlag i krigen signallerede monarkiets fald.

Krigen tegnede Europa-kortet om og bragte fire imperier til fald – Rusland, Østrig-Ungarn, Tyskland og det ottomanske imperium. Tiden efter verdenskrigens afslutning og de første år efter den sejrrige Oktober-revolution var dramatiske. Store arbejderbevægelser og socialistiske revolutioner bankede på kapitalismens dør.

Et nyt kapitel i Tysklands historie åbnedes, da matroserne i Kiel nægtede at videreføre den imperialistiske krig, hejste det røde flag og vendte våbnene mod deres officerer.

Novemberrevolutionen mobiliserede millioner i kampen for at vælte magthaverne og den herskende klasse. Havde den sejret, ville den være en dødelig trussel mod hele den kapitalistiske verdensorden. Den visete at revolution og socialisme ikke alene var et spørgsmål i mere tilbagestående lande, men blev rejst direkte i kapitalismens og imperialismens kernelande.

Sammen med den store lære fra den vellykkede Oktoberervolution i Rusland inspirerede og bistod revolutionen i Tyskland dannelsen af den revolutionære arbejderbevægelse, af den socialistiske og kommunistiske bevægelse. Studiet af denne revolutions udviklingsgang og skæbne rummer vigtige lærer for de revolutionære.

Nederlaget i dette store revolutionsforsøg skyldtes ikke mangel på støtte fra arbejderne eller folkelig støtte i almindelighed. Det var en ægte arbejderrevolution, en folkelig opstand med klassens og de folkelige lags støtte, og et bevis på den tyske arbejderklasses proletarisk revolutionære karakter og bestræbelser. Den blev brutalt undertrykt i forlængelse af mordene på de to strålende ledere Karl Liebknecht og Rosa Luxemburg.

Det var socialdemokratisme, opportunisme og reaktion der udnyttede dens svagheder for at forhindre dens sejr. Men Novemberrevolutionen gav en værdifuld arv til den tyske arbejderklasse i dens kamp gennem hele det sidste århundrede frem til nutiden og fortjener at blive studeret også i dag.

En væsentlig årsag til at revolutionens betingelser ikke var til stede, og til revolutionens undertrykkelse, var manglen på et stærkt revolutionært arbejderparti, et leninistiske parti, der var istand til at lede den. Kampen for at skabe og fastholde et sådant parti er en altid igangværende kamp og den grundlæggende betingelse for revolutionens sejr og opbygningen af socialisme. Dette står også helt centralt for de revolutionære kommunister i dag. Den heroiske Novemberrevolution i 1918 i Tyskland forbliver en værdifuld lære.

Den internationale konference af marxistisk-leninistiske partier og organisationer hilser fejringen af 100-året, organiseret af det tyske medlem af CIPOML – Arbeit Zukunft. Vi ønsker jer store succeser i opbygningen af et ægte marxistisk-leninistisk parti i Tyskland, der løfter og fastholder den røde fane fra den store revolutionære kamp, i fortsættelsen af Marx, Engels,Karls og Rosas, og utallige andre revolutionæres kamp.

LÆNGE LEVE DEN TYSKE ARBEJDERKLASSES KAMP FOR REVOLUTION OG SOCIALISME!

ÆRE TIL MARXISMEN-LENINISMEN!
