The Marxist movement „ People’s Resistance” (MMPR) was founded at the end of 2003. It was formed by the former members of the Communist party of the Republic of Moldova (CPRM) and supporters of the CPRM who deprecated the CPRM’s refusal from their party’s program and proclamation of the course towards the further establishment of capitalism*.
The theoretical basis of the MMPS is Marxism-Leninism; the organization is open for the cooperation with the whole anticapitalist left-wing movement, who really fight against the capital’s dictatorship. The main goals of MMPS are the following: support and organization of the struggle of the working people for their class interests, the foundation of trade unions who are independent from the power of capital. The main methods of the work are such as, the organization of meetings, pickets, propaganda and expository work in the society, the mass dissemination of leaflets on the wide scale public events and the enterprises of the Republic, the mass leaflet campaigns that are of a special importance, the gathering of signatures under the protest letters, the organization of housekeeper committees of citizens, the struggle against the illegal construction and the involvement in the judicial trials. In addition, the MMPR took part in the election campaign with a purpose to use Mass Media for a wide dissemination of anti-capitalist ideas (including the ideas of the renationalization). The MMPR participated 3 times in the parliament elections (in 2005, 2009 and 2010) and in the local ones (in 2011).
The organization supported relations and gave a hand to the newly appeared independent trade unions (to the alternative trade union of Chisinau trolley bus administration, the independent trade union of the sugar beet plant in Glodeni, also to the worker collectives of the sugar beet plant in Cupcini and “Moldcarton” plant.) Nevertheless, in the present time the above mentioned trade unions have ceased their activities.
The most important events that have been held by “People’s Resistance” were the following:
“People’s Resistance” struggles without any compromise against opportunistic pseudo left parties of the Republic of Moldova clarifying their traitors’ essence to workers.
*Beginning from 2002 the PCRM has kept a course of further continuation of neoliberal reforms. Right after Voronin won the election campaign he assured the business elite that there would be no revision of privatization results. In 2003, a course towards the integration in the European Union and the continuation of privatization process of state enterprises and the rest of state property was kept on. Moldova has sent its military contingent in Iraq to support a US military operation. All the parliamentary fraction of the PCRM has voted unanimously for such a resolution.
