WORKERS RESOURCE CENTRE
The programme of the Workers Resource Centre is based
on fulfilling the needs of the communist and workers movement.
At this time, in our estimation, these needs take certain
The crisis of the capitalist system is intensifying, and in
this present stage of capitalism, the pay-the-rich economy, the anti-social
offensive, the programme of privatisation, neo-liberalism and globalisation, is
exacerbating all the underlying contradictions. In this situation, RCPB(ML) has
as its slogan that there is a way out of the crisis. It is to build a
pro-social programme, which is summed up in the rallying call to Stop Paying
the Rich Increase Investments in Social Programmes! Through taking
this programme through to the end, a path will be opened up, a line of march,
to a socialist Britain, with a planned economy where the workers control what
they produce and where the people hold sovereign power.
The needs of the communist and workers movement lie
both in developing the pro-social programme to achieve its aim and in building
the conditions whereby the line of march will give rise to a socialist Britain.
In fulfilling these needs the workers and other sections of society need
resources, both human and material. The programme of the Workers Resource
Centre is geared to this end.
In particular, therefore, the programme of the
Workers Resource Centre is geared to two things. One is to provide
resources for the development of the pro-social programme, elaborating what are
the solutions to the problems of that society is faced with in the course of
exposing how this society pays the rich and what are the blocks to the further
development of society. The second is to provide resources for the
establishing, organising and development of groups of writers and
disseminators, who set their own agenda arising from their own experience,
raising the level of discussion on this agenda, so that within the programme of
the working class to lift society out of the crisis, the subjective conditions
for revolution are created.
We call on workers, youth, women, to assist in building the
Workers Resource Centre. We call on all activists of RCPB(ML) to
formulate their views in the course of their work on how the Workers
Resource Centre can best be developed to assist in the organising of groups of
writers and disseminators of Workers Weekly and Workers
Daily Internet Edition.
