19th International Communist Seminar held in Brussels on the crisis and the action of the communist parties

The following is from the website of the International Communist Seminar: www.icsbrussels.org.

From May 14-16, 2010, 41 communist and workers parties from 37 countries gathered in Brussels for the 19th International Communist Seminar, hosted by the Workers’ Party of Belgium. Among the participants were representatives of communist parties from three socialist countries: the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Communist Party of Cuba.

The Seminar’s theme was the “The consequences of the economic crisis and the intervention of communist parties”. The participants presented papers and held discussions on the deepening of the crisis of capitalism and about the concrete interventions of communist parties in the ongoing class struggles. A document with general conclusions on “The Communist Parties facing the deepening of the capitalist systemic crisis“ was formulated, discussed and adopted.

The Seminar sent a solidarity message to the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), just in time to be read before the massive, KKE-led protest rally on May 15 in Athens. Three specific resolutions were  adopted at the Seminar, all three of them to express solidarity with countries, peoples and workers in struggle against imperialism and capitalism. A first one stresses solidarity with Cuba, a second one with the Palestinian and other peoples in the Middle East, and a last one with the mineworkers in the Russian city of Mezhdurechensk, victims of a mine accident and of State repression.

The Seminar participants agreed to organize next year’s 20th International Communist Seminar from May 13-15, 2011 in Brussels. It will have as theme “The strengthening of the communist parties in times of a deepening capitalist systemic crisis”.

All documents of the 19th International Communist Seminar will be made available at www.icsbrussels.org.

  1. The work of the Belgian workers party comrades is very time needed and very honest revotionary in positive direction ,for which they deserve alot appreciations and felicitaions . The work under the aiges of ICS is of great historical and crucial importance ,it must be made more consolidated and now time for solid pragmatic conclusions and results to shape the history of the world free from exploitations ,speculations ,wars and islamic extremism .

    The theme selected for the 2011 ICS meeting “The strengthening of the communist parties in times of a deepening capitalist systemic crisis”is very very highly need of the day topic ,and time is now ripened for all of us scattered in chunks to join hands to gather for bringing about change in the lives of the common lot ,otherwise our mere talks and conclusion hardly ever can feed the victims of starvation and capitalist barbarism .
    with cardial solidarity .
