New Communist Party of Aotearoa

The New Communist Party of Aotearoa (NCPA) is a communist political party in New Zealand founded in 2019.[2] Although placing itself firmly in the tradition of the now defunct Communist Party of New Zealand (CPNZ), the NCPA does not have a direct organizational or personal link with the CPNZ.

Ideology[edit]

The NCPA describes itself as a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist organisation firmly rooted in working class. In its political program it supports the transition from a capitalist economy to a dictatorship of the proletariat in which workers own the means of production. The NCPA demands stricter protections of LGBT people against homophobia and transphobia and women's rights, including the complete closure of the wage gap between men and women.[3]

In international relations it supports a policy of nonalignment, rejecting New Zealand's membership as a NATO Global Partner and the Five Eyes. The NCPA supports the governments of China, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos and North Korea against what it characterizes as "US/NATO imperialist aggression."[4]

Activities[edit]

The party attends events organized by the Cuban Embassy in New Zealand, for instance to celebrate National Rebellion Day.[5] It has fraternal relations with the Communist Party of Australia, with representatives of both parties visiting each other's congresses and issuing joint statements.[6][7]
