The South African Communist Party will be celebrating its 95th anniversary

29 July 2016

The SACP was founded as the Communist Party of South Africa (CPSA) in July 1921. The Party adopted its founding manifesto on 30 July 1921 at its inaugural Congress and amended its name from the CPSA in 1953 to the SACP after a tactical dissolution followed by underground reorganisation in the face of the apartheid regime's Suppression of Communist Act of 1950. The Communist Party, altogether with the Young Communist League, became the first political organisation to be banned in South Africa by the apartheid regime.

The 95 years of the SACP struggle for liberation and socialism will be celebrated in the context of intensifying local government elections campaigning and the need to move our national democratic revolution on to a second radical phase. The second radical phase of the national democratic revolution must eliminate the colonial features of our economy and ensure manufacturing expansion and diversification to address persisting crises of unemployment and poverty as well as reduce inequality through job creation, decent work, changing the patterns of economic distribution and transforming ownership and control.

The anniversary will also be taking place in the context of the Party's continuing campaigns to achieve transformation of the media, the financial sector and comprehensive social security among others.

Comrade Blade Nzimande, the SACP General Secretary,
Cosatu President Cde Sidumo Dlamini,
Cde Pravin Gordhan representing the ANC and
Young Communist League National Chairperson Cde Yershen Pillay will address the Party's 95th anniversary rally.
