TO THE INTERNATONAL CONFERENCE OF MARXIST-LENINIST PARTIES AND ORGANISATIONS:
REVOLUTIONARY GREETINGS FROM THE 7th CONGRESS OF APK – THE WORKERS’ COMMUNIST PARTY OF DENMARK
The 7th Congress of the Workers’ Communist Party of Denmark APK has been succesfully completed and sends its fervent Marxist-Leninist revolutionary greetings to CIPOML and all its sister parties.
The Congress took place in a situation where all the public employees have been on the barricades of class struggle fighting cut backs and demands from the employers of this sector that workings hours should be increased for a lesser pay. Hundred of thousands have been in the streets to defend their rights and to counter the new systematic attacks on the working conditions and on the publics sector in general. At present the employees of the trade unions of the public sector are voting about their labour contracts for the next three years.
This great mass struggle has taught a new generation of working people the strength of solidarity and united trade union struggle. The public employees have had the support of the workers in the private sector as well, demonstrating that the class struggle of the workers’ and the working people against the capitalists and the capitalist state is very much alive, contrary to the bourgeois propaganda. This struggle followed the militant struggles in 2017 by workers of the private sector.
In many areas the struggle of the working class and its allies has been intensified. This is also true of the struggle against the integration into the neoliberal European Union in still more fields, that has finally eliminated the so called Nordic wellfare state.
Also the struggle against the militarisation and war preparations of the Nordic countries has been intensified – from Greenland and Iceland to Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland – that are organised by the United States and the aggressive imperialist NATO military alliance. Denmark and the Nordic countries are no force for peace, but caught up on the side of the US in its intensified imperialist rivalry that is turning the Arctic and the Baltic Ocean to an area of conflict and preparation for large scale war. The movement for peace is strengthened in all the countries and coordinated on a regional level.
Our Party has been active in all these class struggles, playing a postive and visible role. During the three years since the last Congress it has strengthened its positions in the working class and among the people. It has somewhat increased its ranks and extended its organisation. APK meets the challenges of the next Congress period with confidence and in a militant spirit for new advances in the areas defined by the Congress.
The Congres took new and important steps proces to bring a new generation of younger cadres educated as Marxist-Leninist leaders forward in the leadership of the party.
The 7th Congress unanimously approved the report of the Central Commitee and elected the new Party leadership. It also approved the work of the Party in regard to the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organisations, including the hosting of the world conference in 2016 in Denmark, and pledged to continue and increase its work to strenghten the influence of the Conference in Denmark and all the Nordic countries.
From the Congress we – the Danish Marxist-Leninists – send our warm revolutionary greetings to the Interational Conference and all its member parties, our sister parties, wishing the Conference and all its parties new advances in their revolutionary work, so necessary for the future of mankind. We pledge to strive to fulfill our duties as the Danish member for the Conference.
LONG LIVE THE 7TH CONGRESS OF THE WORKERS’ COMMMUNIST PARTY OF DENMARK!
LONG LIVE THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF MARXIST-LENINIST PARTIES AND ORGANISATIONS!
GLORY TO MARXISM-LENINISM!
