People's Revolutionary Party
Fight for the working class! Fight for marxism-leninism!
Who We Are
We are a Communist Party dedicated to the liberation of the working class in the United States. We are anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist, anti-capitalist, and most of all pro-worker. We are a Marxist-Leninist organization, full of people fighting to put workers in control of their own lives.
Capitalism is happiest when its people are the most atomized. It benefits from deepening the cuts of race, gender, sexuality, ability, religion, and national origin—cuts we as communists are fighting to heal—while stripping the working class of food, health, housing, and education to the highest possible degree that can maintain its perpetuity.
Unlike liberalism, the communist method looks to the present to shape the future. For the first time in history, humanity has the productive power to truly shape the world, yet there still exists a colossal discrepancy between even the most universal human dreams and what we find ourselves living through. We dream of a world run by democracy, not money. Until capital no longer controls its producers, its possessors, and the path of society, not a soul will have a say in human history. Communism is the future.
Our approach is simple, and based on two major tenets:
The elite have purposefully left the working class in the dark on their history, and have lied about the greatest tool to defeat them: Marxism-Leninism. The United States is home to many important events in working class history, like the triangle shirtwaist factory fire, the battle of Blair Mountain, and the Haymarket Riot. Many of the workers who fought to bring us the 8 hour workday and the 5 day work week, people who have fought for unions and better wages for people like you were Marxist-Leninists. The United States has a long list of famous Communists including Harry and Bill Haywood, Angela Davis, John Reed, Helen Keller, Claudia Jones, and more. There are even some famous Communists you probably didn’t know about – like Marilyn Monroe, Nina Simone, and Langston Hughes.
Joining the People’s Revolutionary Party means you’ll be given an education in not just the history of labor in the United States, but also the struggles of workers internationally. You’ll also be given a thorough education in Marxism-Leninism, how we can use it to understand our current situation, and how to put it all into action to win real, material benefits for workers like you.
If the one percent are scared of anything, it’s an organized working class. The wealthy have fought to isolate us by dismantling our unions, destroying our community spaces, and spreading lies to divide us by race, nationality, religion, gender, and any other classification they can come up with.The best way to fight against the elite is to reach across these divisions and organize.
The People’s Revolutionary Party is organized according to one of the core principles of Marxism-Leninism: Democratic Centralism. Democratic centralism means that everything is decided by vote, including the leaders at every level of the party and what approach to take on issues. But, if we’re constantly debating on issues that have already been decided, we’ll spend more time talking about doing things rather than actually doing what’s needed to win rights for workers. This is where the centralism part of Democratic Centralism comes in. It means that once an issue is decided, we move forward unless it becomes clear we’ve made a mistake, and the path we’ve set forth cannot be changed. This allows us to be accountable to our members and the working class, but also keeps us focused on our ultimate goal: Liberation of the worker from the chains of Capitalism.
By joining the PRP, you’ll be fighting to organize at every level: from clubs in your community to shop units in your workplace, and even in your government. You’ll reach across the boundaries the elite use to separate us to build the solidarity needed to forge a better world for all of us.
