UMITSUBAME No.1299/April.16
"UMITSUBAME" that means storm petrel in Japanese, is the MCG newspaper published
every two weeks..

@In front of the National Diet (Nov.1959)

lenin's "own words"
For raising trotskyism!

No.1299/April.16, 2017
From the time of "endurance" to "launching on."
-- We make a fresh start as "the Workers Party aiming for liberation of labor."
-- Let's realize the representatives from the Workers Party in five years!

@Everybody of the readers and workers of the whole country! We dissolved the circle-like organization "the Marxist Comrade Group" under which we had been fighting for 14 years, and decided to unite in "the Workers Party aiming for liberation of labor" organized newly and to advance for a stage of new fight. We resolved above things with an overwhelming majority in our meeting. In other words, "the Workers Party aiming for liberation of labor" is the name of new party and is the aim. We clarify the implication of this party's name in the part of the preamble of our party's program which we adopted in our meeting. We avoided the name that had been used "traditionally", such as a party of "socialism", and adopted the word "liberation of labor" which is fresh and appropriate for the aim of our party as the name of new party. It has been raised as a part of slogans of the title left side of our organ paper "Petrel" highly and for a long time until now.

[Editorial]: It is a power crime of Abe and the whole nationalist group. -- We must not permit the great evil around Moritomo.
The new program, the history and the characteristic of the party -- there is nothing ashamed at all.
About "the liberation of labor" -- From the preamble of our program

No.1298/April.2, 2017
At first, sworn testimonies before the the Diet are necessary
-- Mrs.Akie, Mr.Matsy and elite officials in the Ministry of Finance etc.

@The Abe Administration refused the Diet summons of witnesses of the persons concerned of the Moritomo school political scandal determinedly till then, but suddenly agreed to the Diet invitation of Mr.Kagoike as soon as a donation of 1 million yen to the school and the reward to Mrs.Akie were revealed. Abe judged that he could close the curtain on this case, if he gave the impression of Mr.Kagoike as the terrible impostor and just a fraud to people. However, regrettably to Abe and others, Kagoike's speech in the Diet revealed that the donation of 1 million yen was just fleabite, and the commitment, support and offices to the Moritomo school by Mr.and Mrs.Abe -- because they thought "the education" of the Moritomo school was an ideal education -- enabled a discount of 800 million yen of the national land .

[Editorial]: The JPC is doing a service to the Abe government -- The Japan Communist Party and a living succession of the Emperor
The Koike illusion sloughs off -- The populism continues from the era of Inose and Masuzoe
It's becoming more and more to just a slogan -- "The way of working reform implementation plan" of Abe
The Takahama Nuclear Power Plant is going to operate again -- When the responsibility of the government and the Tokyo Electric against the nuclear plant accidentare should be questioned

No.1297/March.19, 2017
"The string-puller" is the Abe Administration itself.
-- The Moritomo school on parade of violation of law, injustice and falseness

@As the investigation about the management of Moritomo school progresses, a lot of corruption is revealed, that is, public money embezzlement, fraud, capture of the subsidy, and the "donation" of Abe to the Moritomo school, and so on. About the "education" of the kindergarten, it is exposed to be just poor, and ridiculous contents such as the education of the nationalism of Japan Emperor system for over 3 years old children as an ideal of the Abe Administration. Abe and reactionary group now jeer that Kagoike as the manager do not deserve the name of the school teacher, or the education of the Moritomo school is not education. It is as if they have forgot whether they beautified, praised, and pampered so called the "education" of the Moritomo school until now. And they are going to put an end to this case by the temporizing means to buy back the national land now. However, of course, the workers do not permit such a thing and must extend this fight until overthrow of the Abe Administration.

[Editorial]: They may as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb -- The Japan Communist Party is going to be a leader for protecting the Emperor system of Japan.
Summoning Kagoike to testify as sworn witnesses at the Diet
-- Does the power and the times of Abe reach the end?
Withdrawing from the South Sudan in the crisis -- For what was the armed forces dispatched ?

Japanese Marxist Hayashi Hiroyoshi introduces the fundamental concepts of Marx's economic theory, particularly the "labor theory of value" presented at the beginning of Capital.

Book Description

Karl Marx's ideas have been declared "dead" on more than one occasion, only to emerge with new relevance a few years later. But the "collapse of communism" seemed to be the final nail in his coffin. The end of history had been reached, we were told, and poor old Karl was wrong. - Or was he?

In Marx's Labor Theory of Value: A Defense, Hayashi Hiroyoshi argues that Marx will continue to be relevant as long as capitalism continues to exist. This is simply because no one grasped the nature of capitalism on a more profound level than Marx did. Hayashi presents the most fundamental aspects of Marxist economic thought, centering on the discussion of the commodity at the beginning of Capital. Also included are detailed examinations of Adam Smith's theory of value and the concepts of ground - rent, credit, and productive labor. Hayashi shows that Marx's labor theory of value is the key not only to understanding capitalism but also for grasping the essential characteristics of socialism. And socialism - as the real solution to the contradictions of capitalism - turns out to have little in common with the recently deceased "communist" states.

Now that history has resumed - after its brief "hiatus" - it's time to return to Marx!

We have finally published our first book in English! Now our theory of state capitalism is available in English to socialists throughout the world.

This book represents an important theoretical pillar for the struggle for real socialism.

Welcome to the MCG Web Site!
At our party congress that was held on November 2 and 3, 2002, we dissolved the SWP and made the decision to create a new organization in order to move forward new struggles. At the congress, reviewing the past ten years of our activities, we recognized our inability to carry out activities as a party, and that despite our hopes and desires, the subjective-as well as objective-conditions necessary to fight as a party in the near future are lacking. We therefore decided to move forward as a revolutionary Marxist circle (Marxist Comrades Group). This is painful "one step forward, two steps back." But, frankly summing up the present situation, we came to the conclusion that a more fundamental struggle is necessary. We thank everyone who has supported our struggles over the past 18 years, and encourage you to join together with us in our future struggles.

[The Marxist Comrades Group will not have a program, but the program of the SWP will be preserved as a "deference source".]
