Red Fire is the publication of the Workers League. The Workers League is a socialist organisation which seeks to build Marxist vanguard parties in Australia and internationally.
We strive to be active in the social movements, assisting where we agree with the aims, while putting forward the case for the overthrow of capitalism via the establishment of a workers’ republic.
In the Union movement, we seek to rebuild the Unions into democratic organisations which fight to defend the basic interests of the working class. This often requires a political struggle against conservative Union officials, which often seek to further their own careers at the expense of their own members and workers in general.
We oppose imperialism in all its forms, including the imperialism of the Australian ruling class, which is tied to the empire led by the United States of America and its European allies such as the United Kingdom, France, and Germany; as well as other allies such as Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkey, Qatar and so on. At the same time, we seek to reach out and engage with the working people of all those in imperialist or imperialist-allied nations.
An important part of anti-imperialist work is defence of, and solidarity with, the existing socialist states of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (SRV), the Laos People’s Democratic Republic (LPDR) and the Republic of Cuba. Historically, we defend the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and the former socialist countries of Eastern Europe.
We also seek to defend non-socialist states which are targeted by imperialism, such as Russia, Iran, Syria, Libya, Venezuela and Bolivia. Political endorsement of the governments of such states is another matter. Again, we seek to reach out to working people in such states.
Capitalism is potentially destroying the climactic conditions necessary for human survival on planet earth. While we support and recognise the efforts of many environmental campaigns, a serious address of environmental issues can only be undertaken by a workers’ government. In the meantime, we support the application of all forms of available technology to address immediate issues.
