Draft Programme

 This programme is not a blueprint for the revolution, nor is it to be imposed on the workers by a party, rather the workers’ themselves would fulfill this programme over the course of the revolution as they abolish capitalism and transform it into communism.

  • Organization of the working class into a centralized body united around the communist programme
  • The overthrow of the capitalist state by the working class and the exercise of political authority by the workers’ sovereign class organizations
  • Direct recall for all elected bodies with officials constantly rotated to prevent bureaucratization within the workers’ organizations
  • Abolition of the police and military and their immediate replacement with militias composed of armed workers under the control of the workers’ organizations
  • Command of any local revolutionary authority by the international class-party to direct the revolution in the interests of the international working class
  • Military support for the international revolutionary struggle with the aim of organizing the working class into a centralized international ruling body
  • Full voting rights and citizenship for all workers with deprivation of voting rights to former capitalists and members of the capitalist state
  • Suppression of all forms of organization of the capitalist class such as capitalist political parties and the capitalist press
  • Centralization of all property and the means of production under the control of the workers’ organizations
  • Establishment of control over production and distribution by the workers’ organizations as well as worker control at the point of production
  • Institution of economic planning by the workers’ organizations to abolish production for profit in favor of production directly for use
  • Immediate abolition of intellectual property to end the division in society between physical and intellectual labor
  • Abolition of unemployment, and establishment of a system of direct distribution of non-scarce goods and services to address needs in place of exchange
  • Abolition of money and wages and their replacement with a rationing system to distribute scarce goods and services based on needs
  • Organization of individual production into cooperatives to gradually unite them with the sector of communized production and abolish exchange
