The second part of the two presentations of an open event for the 100 years of the October Revolution that took place in Athens in May of 2017.
By T. Fotopoulos member of the Central Committee of CPG(m-l).
We are going through a historical period where the realism of the practicing policy is centered on the fact that "revolutionary politics do not work, and they have a marginal appeal".
We live in a period where a revolutionary policy with a look towards tomorrow is constantly postponed, and revolutionary voluntarism has been banished from thinking and practice.
It is a phase of the movement where “left pessimism”, with eyes fixed on parliamentary percentages, brings disappointment.
It is a time when the workers' communist strategy, as a living policy in the battles of today, is seeked, and must be rebuilt. For now it is ideologically “underground”, treated as "sectarianism" or "leftism" ...
In this endeavor to restore the revolutionary view to the present, we want to contribute with this event, but mainly with our political intervention, since this will give us again the food for the theory of the new period of the Communist movement that we are already walking on.
