On Party Commissions

By Comrade O’Connell

Party commissions serve the purpose of building bodies within the party to appropriately deal with issues that effect the national, or international working class. Such being for example the LGBT+ commission to address the issues of homophobia, transphobia, etc. within the working class, to lead a LGBT+ movement of communist workers, to fight such forms of oppression and discrimination. The same is said with the oppressed minorities commission, the women’s rights commission, etc. The commissions built by the party should serve as movements within the main party, the communist party, who unites all workers in the struggle against capitalism; which has kept such groups as previously mentioned, in bondage to sell their labor for the profit of a small group, and who said group profits off the suffering and desperation of such oppressed minorities within the working class.

As Lenin said in “The Emancipation of Women”

“The communist women’s movement must itself be a mass movement, a part of the general mass movement.”

These commissions serve a powerful body within the party to lead a united strike against issues that assault our working class brothers and sisters, to fight against the racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. that is created and promoted by capitalism to keep us divided. They are movements that are intertwined with the main party, with the common goal of liberation for all workers. Women liberation, black liberation, LGBT+ liberation, all will be reached with a united liberation movement under the red banner of socialism.
