Stalin's Victory Speech on May 9, 1945 (English subtitles)

On May 9 2016, we are proud to bring you Stalin's victory speech made on
May 9 1945, when the Soviet Union was vindicated in its policy and long
arduous struggle against the Imperialist invaders, by compete victory
over Nazi German Fascism.

We will lay a wreath at the Soviet War
memorial in Kennington, later today, and invite all our readers,
viewers, sympathisers and supporters to spend a moment reflecting on the
great contribution that the Soviet people made to our lives. This
excellent article is worthy of your time: http://www.lalkar.org/article/2245/70....

Second
only to the October Revolution, that brought the USSR into existence,
and created the conditions for limiting and defeating imperialism, this
titanic struggle of the Soviet people to vanquish aggressive capitalist
imperialism in the Great Patriotic War - WW2 - can be regarded as the
greatest achievement of the working class, and should be celebrated and
marked by workers of all countries, as our finest hour.

We send
our heartfelt thanks to the peoples of the Soviet Union, who fought so
heroically, leading the whole world in progressive struggle, and showing
that in contrast to the Darkness of Nazi Fascism, and capitalism in
crisis, there was a great light, a great spirit of peace and justice,
signifying a bright socialist future for humanity, if only we have the
courage to overthrow the rotten, corrupt, decadent and parasitic system
of capitalism, so long past its sell-by date, that offers a future only
of starvation, misery, division, violence, destruction, petty drudgery,
environmental catastrophe and war - always war.

The true
significance of WW2 is the victory of socialism over capitalism; the
superiority of a system that relies on mutual cooperation and respect,
over one that relies on rapacious exploitation, depravity and greed. It
is a promise to our future: we WILL build a world free of exploitation
of man by man and nation by nation. We WILL once again bring back and
expand the Soviet system of brotherhood of nations - for only in this
way can society and humanity be saved from its current impasse - a world
more grotesquely distorted in 2016 than it was in 1939, by the misery
that results from the gross inequality of capitalist imperialism.

Today
just 62 people, the billionaires, the 'darlings of fortune', our most
ruthless exploiters, have amassed as much wealth in their hand as 3.5
billion people - half the world's population. The Walton family in the
US - owners of Walmart - have more wealth than 40 percent of their
'fellow americans' combined. This is not sustainable and it cannot
continue.

Of course our joy at Soviet victory on this day in 1945
is tempered by our profound regret at the collapse o the Soviet Union,
which was undermined from within by capitalist roaders following
Khrushchev's ascendancy in 1953, on the death of the great hero of the
working people, Joseph Vasarianovich Stalin.

But we in the
CPGB-ML, as we survey the course of modern history - and as we lay a
wreath at the Soviet War Memorial later today in honour of the sacrifice
of the Soviet people - are secure in the knowledge that even the
terrible loss of the USSR signifies only a temporary defeat in the
ongoing class struggle.

We live in the era of proletarian
revolution and emerging socialism. The great trail blazed by the USSR
has affected the entire world, even after her demise, and history cannot
be turned back. Workers must understand the lessons of the victories of
the USSR, as well as its defeats, in order to move confidently forward
to build a future that is controlled by us - the vast mass of working
people who create all wealth.

Long Live the memory and example of
the Soviet Union! Long live the great Soviet October Revolution! Long
live the victory over Fascism!
