Greeting Message of the Comintern (SH)



The Comintern (SH) greets all comrades across the world !


Immediately, after Karl Marx died on the 14th of March 1883, the bourgeois newspapers spread numerous calumnies about the dead leader of the international proletariat.

But the name of Karl Marx and his work is still alive on his 131st Day of Death.

Karl Marx is immortal.

The Comintern (SH) has decided to commemorate the birthdays and death days of the 5 Classics of Marxism-Leninism every year.
On this day of commemoration we published new writings in different languages on our special website.

This year we pay tribute to Karl Marx not only as the creator of scientific socialism, but also as the great leader of the international proletariat.

Finally, it was Karl Marx who called the First International into being 150 years ago.

"Workers of the world unite!"

This world revolutionary slogan of the "Communist Manifesto" of 1848 was implemented organizationally in 1864.

With the First International, the ideas of scientific socialism were spread in the international labor movement for the first time. Karl Marx continued his struggle against the enemies of scientific socialism by means of the First International in the international labor movement. He has performed his struggle against the British trade unionism, against the French petty-bourgeois Proudhonism and against anarchism of Bakunin. On all congresses and conferences of the First International, we can follow the victorious advance of Karl Marx. Marx finally triumphed at the Hague Congress. Here the crucial basic principles of Marxism were decided:

the establishment of the political dictatorship of the working class as a necessary precondition for the building of socialism.

With the First International Karl Marx created the conditions for the foundation of revolutionary workers' parties in each country, which were guided by scientific socialism, by Marxism

Similarly, the Comintern (SH) has today laid the basis for the creation of its Sections in the various countries, to spread the ideas of Stalinism-Hoxhaism in the labor movement throughout the world.

The first world organization of the proletariat was founded in the immediate vicinity of a London proletarian slums. And so the new Sections of the Comintern (SH) will have their starting point in all slums of the world which will be transformed into bullwarks of the socialist world revolution.

The First International lives on in the Comintern (SH) and its Sections.

For Karl Marx, the First International was the

"international counter-organization of labor against cosmopolitan conspiracy of capital."

And Friedrich Engels described Marx as the

"Soul of the International Working Men's Association"

- as the First International was then called.


Friedrich Engels said:

"Describing the work of Marx in the International would be to write the history of the association itself."

Friedrich Engels gave the First International, the position of a


"Seventh Great Power".

The Comintern (SH) is totally convinced that the world proletariat will make the International one day the only superpower in the world

- a world power in the spirit of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Enver Hoxha.

The First International won worldwide fame by Karl Marx .

The success of the First International led by Karl Marx raised the international class consciousness of the proletariat of all countries.

The First International united the international labor movement and encouraged the internationalist class struggle of the proletariat of all countries.

On the other hand, the First International instilled fear in the whole world bourgeoisie.

With the First International Karl Marx gave the communist specter a lively international head with strong arms and legs in every capitalist country in the world - ready to sweep off capitalism from the globe - ready to enter the path towards world communism.


Long live Karl Marx

- The founder and leader of the First International!

Forward in the spirit of Karl Marx and the First International!

Workers of the world unite!

World proletariat - unite all countries!






150 Years ago ...

St. Martin's Hall, Long Acre, in London

Foundation meeting of the International Workingmen's Association on September 28, 1864



Karl Marx and the

First International

(International Workingmen’s Association)

Saul Padover



When the International was formed in September 1864, Marx was “a relatively obscure refugee journalist,” Saul Padover notes in the introduction to a volume of select works written by Marx for the International:


“Exiled from his native Germany, thrown out of Belgium, and expelled from France, Marx found refuge in the British capital in 1849. In the 15 years before the founding of the International, Marx eked out a living from journalism – saved from actual starvation by Frederick Engels, who was in the textile business in Manchester – and spent most of his time writing, reading, and researching (in the British Museum). After the traumatic defeat of the revolutions of 1848-49 in Europe, he became for a time politically inactive.


“In London, Marx’s main contacts were with other Europeans, particularly German and French radicals and refugees, with many of whom he had intermittent squabbles and disagreements. While showing deep interest in British politics, institutions, and movements – notably the history of Chartism, which was not without influence on his own political thinking – he kept himself, or was kept, aloof from English activists, including trade unionists. With few exceptions, one of them being the Chartist leader and editor Ernest Charles Jones, Marx had no close connection with English radicals or laborites, and vice versa. His led the politically isolated life of an unassimilated continental refugee. The International was to change all this.


“It is still not entirely clear why Marx was invited to what turned out to be a historic meeting at St. Martin’s Hall. Until about a week before the meeting, on September 28, he apparently knew nothing about any preparations for it. Then he was told about it by Victor Le Lubez, a 30-year-old French radical republican living in London, who invited him to come as a representtive of German workers. Marx accepted and proposed that he be joined by Johann Georg Eccarius, a tailor living in London, as another German representative. As it turned out, Marx and Eccarius were to become the two mainstays of the International from its inception to its end.


“The meeting was jammed with a large number of assorted radicals. There were English Owenties and Chartists, French Proudhonists and Blanquists, Irish nationalists, Polish patriots, Italian Mazzinists, and German Socialists. It was an assortment united not by a commonly shared ideology or even by genuine internationalism, but by an accumulated burden of variated grievances crying for an outlet. The English were against special privilege, the French against Bonapartism, the Irish against the British, the Poles against Russia [Poland was occupied by Russia in 1795], the Italians against Austria, and the Germans against capitalism. There was no necessary or integral interconnection among them – except what Marx later tried to provide in the organizaton that followed the meeting. Under the chairmanship of Edward Spencer Beesly, an English Positivist historian and professor at London University, radical oratory was given free rein. Marx himself did not speak. He was, as he wrote later, a ‘silent figure on the platform.’


“The meeting voted unanimously to appoint a provisional committee to work out a program and membership rules for the proposed international organizaton. Marx was appointed a member of the committee, which met a week later and, being large and unweildy, agreed on a small subcommittee to do the actual work. Marx became a member of this crucial subcommittee. The only other German on it was “my old friend, the tailor Eccarius", as Marx wrote to a communist friend in Solingen. The subcommittee met in Marx’s house, and so powerful was his intellectual ascendency and certainty of purpose – the In Augural Address – and the rules – Provisional Statutes – of the new organization. Henceforth Marx was to remain its predominant spirit and the indomitable personality that held the disparate International Association together for eight difficult and often stormy years, until it was shattered by bitter internal dissensions.


“In the International, Marx saw a great historic opportunity, and seized it. Indeed, it is questionable whether the organization would have survived, or would have had any meaning, without him. His steely will and impassioned commitment to the idea of the revolutionary role of the world proletariat prevented the International from passing into the same oblivion as had other dreams of squabbly radicals, confused in their philosophy and at cross-purposes in their aims.”
