Who we are and what we do
Welcome to the Communist Party of Great Britain! We are a revolutionary political organisation that fights to create in Britain a genuine mass Communist Party cohered around a genuine communist programme, and for communist leadership of the workers movement in Britain, Europe and internationally.
