The capitalist development leads to more and more violent crises, which expresses themselves in a steadily increasing unemployment and a still deeper shaking of the economy. Through this millions of workers are shut out from production and abandoned to starving. At the same time the divisions between the various capitalist countries are deepening towards a point where the competition, that is already an economical war, will result in a new World War.
The continuous impoverishment and the growing uncertainty concerning the mere existence forces the working class to fight for the communist mode of production. In these fights the Groups of International Communists encourage the workers to take the administration and management of production and distribution into their own hands following generally valid social rules in order to realize the 'association of free and equal producers'.
The G.I.C. sees the development of the workers' self-consciousness as the essential progress of the workers' movement. Therefore they oppose the leader-policies of the parliamentarian parties and of the trade unions and maintains as watchwords for the struggle:
ALL POWER TO THE WORKERS' COUNCILS!
THE PRODUCTION IN THE HANDS OF THE ENTERPRISE ORGANIZATIONS!
