Ideological and Organisational Manifesto**
The Socialist Workers' Party (SWP) is a left-wing european political party that gathers the parties of the european left political spectrum which are struggling for a European Union with a human face, focusing on citizens' problems and environment protection rather than economic and big businesses' affairs.
Socialism: social and economic doctrine that calls for public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources. According to the socialist view, individuals do not live or work in isolation but live in cooperation with one another.
Communism: the political and economic doctrine that aims to replace private property and a profit-based economy with public ownership and communal control of at least the major means of production and the natural resources.
Democratic Socialism: political ideology advocating a democratic political system alongside a socialist economic system. This may refer to extending principles of democracy in the economy (such as through cooperatives or workplace democracy), or may simply refer to trends of socialism that emphasise democratic principles as inalienable from their political project.
Marxism: body of doctrine developed by Karl Marx and, to a lesser extent, by Friedrich Engels in the mid-19th century. It originally consisted of three related ideas: a philosophical anthropology, a theory of history, and an economic and political program. Marxist methodology uses economic and sociopolitical inquiry and applies that to the analysis and critique of the development of capitalism and the role of class struggle in systemic economic change.
Leninism: body of political theory for the democratic organisation of a revolutionary vanguard party, and the achievement of a dictatorship of the proletariat, as political prelude to the establishment of socialism. Developed by, and named for, the Russian revolutionary and later Soviet premier Vladimir Lenin, Leninism comprises political and socialist economic theories, developed from Marxism, as well as Lenin?s interpretations of Marxist theory for practical application to the socio-political conditions of the agrarian early-20th-century Russian Empire.
Green politics: political ideology that aims to create an ecologically sustainable society rooted in environmentalism, social justice, and grassroots democracy. Supporters of Green politics share many ideas with the ecology, conservation, environmentalism, feminism, and peace movements. In addition to democracy and ecological issues, green politics is concerned with civil liberties, social justice, nonviolence, sometimes variants of localism and tends to support social progressivism.Goals
The Socialist Workers' Party and its member parties will work for the creation of a more open European Union, closer to the people, in which the ideological principles of this party play an essential role and with the establishment of a socialist society in the European Union as the ultimate goal. The SWP will be acting as the vanguard party pushing for those objectives.
The SWP is led by a politburo, formed by one representative of each member party, among which a General Secretary is elected. The General Secretary holds the highest representative power for the Socialist Workers' Party.
In order to revise or debate any aspect of this Manifesto, a party conference may be called on by any member party.
