BRITAIN’S communists called for a broad-based alliance against the growing power of capitalist monopolies at the weekend.
“The monopoly corporations are sucking in resources, skills and wealth directly and through their huge supply chains; they are exploiting their multimillion-strong labour forces to extract super-profits for their shareholders and taking absoĺute control of finance, advanced technology, security, ‘defence,’ commodity production and service delivery,” Communist Party chair Liz Payne told the executive committee on Sunday.
“They are degrading the environment on a massive scale, extracting natural resources and leaving scars that can be seen from outer space.”
Ms Payne highlighted the operations of UK Seabed Resources, a wholly owned subsidiary of armaments giant Lockheed Martin that is prospecting for polymetallic nodules in the last untouched part of the planet, over 50,000 square miles of the deep Pacific Abyss.
Executive member Bill Greenshields condemned the “criminal profiteering” of the capitalist monopolies in the energy, pharmaceutical and armaments industries.
The party resolved to approach other bodies to convene an anti-monopolies conference in 2022.
