The Unity of Marxist-Leninists Is Necessary

Communist Party of Germany 

The Central Committee of the KPD at its last session discussed in detail the question of the unity of Marxist-Leninists.

Everyone can see that the Marxist-Leninist forces in Germany are not only small but are also greatly divided and are split up into a large number of organisations. However, in Germany we need a strong communist party that is rooted in the working class. There is no such party now in Germany, and its creation is an urgent necessity.

In order to really be able to consider the creation and the building up of such a party, all efforts must be made to overcome the divisions and splits of the Marxist-Leninists. We proceed from the fact that outside of the KPD there are not only people but also organisations that are working on Marxist-Leninist foundations.

We know that the division of the Marxist-Leninist forces in Germany has come about not the least due to splits from the KPD. To the degree that we are responsible for this, we will undertake an open and honest self-criticism of our own work. We expect others to also do this.

The unity of the Marxist-Leninists can only be created through common action, through common practice and a discussion on the basis of solidarity around common programmatic foundations. The common work of Marxist-Leninist forces in an ‘anti-fascist and anti-imperialist alliance’ is a first step in this direction.

We know that the realisation of the unity of Marxist-Leninists into a single party will not be simple. For this it is necessary in this process to have solidarity, patience, thoroughness and a great sense of duty.

But we also think that the time is ripe to make the first practical steps for the realisation of the unity of Marxist-Leninists.
