Climate Crisis Demands Communism

The red flag is lifted over the fighting masses of people in the world. They stand at the fore for the revolutionary attack on capitalism. And they carry the promise for a bright future for humanity.

We must break all bonds of loyalty to the capitalist political system, boycott their election circus, and throw ourselves into the revolutionary class struggle for political power to the proletariat. It is this that will tear the world out of the hands of the bourgeoisie and make it into our own world, where the masses consciously and enthusiastically control their own future.

Parliament Will Not Solve Environmental Problems

Tens of thousands protest, but their demands die in Parliament. Even with a Parliament filled with so-called green politicians, they will never be able to do anything decisive for the climate within capitalism. Only revolution can save the planet from environmental catastrophe.
