The American Party of Labor (APL) is a Marxist-Leninist political party in the United States, founded in December, 2008. It follows the line of Marx-Engels-Lenin-Stalin and published The Red Phoenix.
In the fallout of a global recession, the people of the United States stand in a position of economic uncertainty. There is no end to the fighting in sight. In a time of growing environmental calamities, any solutions presented are inadequate. All of the problems facing humanity at this time require solutions. At this time, the world stage is in the hands of those who are in opposition to what is necessary to fix our circumstances and transform the situation in the interests of the people.
But where there are obstacles, there are forces for change as well, battering the walls of the status quo. For the creation of a modern society, for the affirmation of the rights of the people, and for the realization of the needs of all humanity. This historic role of turning defeat into victory is in the hands of the workers, farmers and youth of the United States of America, and this role will not be denied.
THE AMERICAN PARTY OF LABOR has a goal to establish a genuine democracy that elevates the lives of the people in the United States by building a revolutionary movement composed of workers of all ages; of all races, ethnicities, and nationalities; of all gender identities and identifications; and of all sexual orientations. Our Party believes that the only way to do this is through hard work and struggle. We call for a true government for the people and by the people. This is the only way to liberate the masses of poor in the United States.
