56th Congress of the CPB
on the occasion of the 56th Congress of the Communist Party of Britain we are honoured to express our best wishes for good work and an internationalist greeting to all militants and to the working class of your country.
We have read the documents that you are going to discuss. With particular interest we have taken note of your analysis of the new cold war which is combined with a rampant and dangerous Sinophobia. In our view, the primary contradiction of our historical phase is that which divides Atlantic imperialism and Chinese-led multipolarism, and it is on this basis that we also note a division of the bourgeoisie itself in our country.
We also appreciate the reference to the struggle of our people against the institutional framework agreement with the European Union, which we too have opposed together with the Swiss trade union movement, and we share your view of the essentially imperialist character of the EU.
For our part, we are also preparing to enter the period of our 24th Congress, and certainly the theme of anti-imperialism and peace will be deepened. Our Party, made up above all of young people, must now make a qualitative leap from the point of view of organisation and territorial roots, and also from the point of view of exchanging experiences we will be happy to be able to build more intense relations of friendship and cooperation with British communists.
We are confident that the 56th Congress of the CPB will be a success that will give renewed impetus to the British workers’ movement and we send you our solidarity. With best wishes and socialist greetings.

Message of Greetings from the Communist Party of Bangladesh to the 56th Congress of the Communist Party of Britain.
We are pleased to know that the 56th Congress of the Communist Party of Britain will take place on 6-7th November 2021. Indeed it is a big challenge to hold this Congress aftermath of Covid-19 Pandemic. The Communist Party of Bangladesh sincerely believes that Comrades in the Communist Party of Britain will be able to cope up with current situation and will hold a successful party congress.
The Communist Party of Britain has a long glorious history of building communist and progressive movement in British Society. Also it has a historic and traditional linkage with the communist movement of undivided India, which is a root of the Communist movement of Bangladesh.
Your Congress meets at a time when the pandemic has exposed the bankruptcy of global capitalism. Presently capitalism is confronted with its inherent decay and thus trying to rescue itself by using the policy of ‘privatization of profit and socialization of the burden of crises’. It has embarked on a cruel policy of austerity and privatisation in an all-out manner. The recent aggressiveness of imperialism, specially the US imperialism and its allies are reflection of the crisis of capitalism. For this reason, freedom is being trampled underfoot and nations are being harnessed to the global geopolitical strategy of imperialism to accentuate economic exploitation and social-political domination. The crisis of Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Palestine have again proved that the US imperialism has practically embarked on the mission of ‘re-colonization’.
Indeed the global assault of capitalism-imperialism calls for a new global coalition of all anti-imperialist forces of the world, for raising to a qualitatively new level of unity, cohesion, cooperation and coordination of the struggles of these forces all over the world. The Communist and Workers parties of the world have a crucial role to play in building up this coalition and spearheading the struggle for peace, democracy and justice.
Communist Party of Bangladesh firmly believes that the Communist, left-progressive and all truly patriotic forces ready to fight imperialist aggression will build up united struggle at the national, regional and global level at this critical time.
We believe your Congress will contribute in overcoming the present crisis and consolidating the achievements of the glorious struggle of the peoples of Britain.
Wish you further success in the struggle for peace, freedom, democracy and Socialism.
With solidarity and revolutionary greetings-
On behalf of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Bangladesh.

56th Congress of the Communist Party of Britain November 6th-7th 2021.
Dear Comrades, since last Congress you have been through a serious
pandemic, and face a radically different political situation to
that in 2018. A populist right-wing government is now in power in Britain.
The Labour Party has undergone a destructive take-over by a neo-liberal faction.
The Congress key resolutions tabled for debate in these curcumstances is to
rally working people in Britain against imperialist war and for socialist advance.
CP of Norway is wishing you great success in your 56th Congress.
We are loking forward to meet again in the 22nd IMCWP in 2022.

Dear comrades of the Communist Party of Britain:
On behalf of the Communist Party of Workers of Spain (PCTE), we wish you
all the success on occasion of your 56th Congress.
We will follow with interest the developing of your Congress. Britain

members of NATO. Our working class has similar tasks and a common goal:
breaking the chains of these imperialist tools, struggling for the
socialist revolution. Based on the principles of proletarian
internationalism, we consider that developing comradely relations
between our parties is a strategic issue.

AKEL CENTRAL COMMITTEE MESSAGE TO THE 56th CONGRESS
OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF BRITAIN
As you are convening in your 56th Congress, the Central Committee of AKEL conveys to you, warm comradely greetings and wishes every success in the CPB Congress deliberations.
Having acquainted ourselves with the documents that the Congress will be discussing, we understand that in the specific national and international developments and taking into account the Party growth experienced in recent years, new challenges and responsibilities are set before you. Of particular interest is what you define as the top strategic priority of the labour and progressive movements and the left, including the Communist Party that is the building of the kind of alliance that you present. This matched with your proposals of a Left-Wing Programme that would challenge state-monopoly capitalism, can make the CBP’s role, influence and intervention stronger in the manifold struggles ahead of the left and labour movement. Particularly as the working people is struggling with the continuing consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, your clear left alternative perspective can inspire and mobilise new groups of people and particularly the youth.
AKEL highly appreciates the British Communists’ internationalist and principled solidarity extended throughout the years to national liberation movements, to peoples struggling against imperialism, against British colonialism, against fascism, for the noble ideals of peace and socialism. Your document on Halting imperialism’s drive to war, whilst analysing imperialism’s ever increasing offensive threatening the peoples with yet another catastrophic war,is at the same time a continuation of the internationalist tradition of British communists.
We express our gratitude for the CPB’s consistent support and solidarity with AKEL and the Cypriot people in the struggle to end the 47 years-long Turkish occupation, to avert the threatened permanent division, and achieve the reunification of Cyprus under a Bizonal Bicommunal Federation. In this regard, we view of high importance the inclusion in your Congress document a relevant paragraph stressing also Britain’s responsibility to play a constructive role, as one of the guarantor powers in reaching such a solution, ending the occupation and dismantling of the British Bases in Cyprus.
AKEL values its long standing fraternal relations with the British communist movement which have been forged in the waging of common struggles, as for example in the participation in the International Brigades. We seek to further develop and enrich these ties also through the contribution of AKEL’s Branch in Britain in the struggles of British communists and the left movement in general. We are pleased to note that we have significantly strengthened these relations in recent years. We will continue our common work in the International Meetings of Communist and Workers Parties, and other bilateral and multilateral fora.
Wishing you every success in the Congress deliberations,
With comradely greetings
The Central Committee of AKEL
