what is communism?

We are communists. We fight for a new self-managed society based on collective ownership of the means of production & distribution & an economy organised not for profit but for the well-being of humanity, in harmony with our natural environment. Communism will abolish the system of wage-labour so that our ability to work will cease to be a commodity to be sold to an employer; it will be a truly classless society; there will be no state, no managers or organisations superior to those of workers’ self management. This will entail a form of democracy which will not coexist with economic exploitation as in capitalism. Communism is about replacing both the international state system & the increasingly interlinked network of capitalist corporations with global, regional & local networks of democratic self-managed workers’ councils & cooperatives.
