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. Our goal is to overthrow capitalism and build a communist society free from the exploitation and oppression that characterise all class societies.
Below is an overview of our main activities and organisations we support.
As a polemical platform, the Weekly Worker features debate on and between the far left.
The school for the thinking left. This is our annual event in August where the “Weekly Worker goes live” for a week, with speakers from all kinds of backgrounds and lively discussion and disagreements from the audience.
Independent marxists fighting to transform the Labour Party into an instrument for working class advance and international socialism.
