The Party of Labour (Serbian: Партиja рaдa / Partija rada) is a revolutionary communist, Marxist–Leninist party founded in Serbia.[1]

History

The party was founded in March 1992 by Vlado Dapčević, an anti-revisionist, who was a long-time political prisoner in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. He formed it after splitting from the League of Communists of Yugoslavia. Party members were not allowed to take a part in wars in Croatia or Bosnia and Herzegovina. In September 1997 the Party program and Status were adopted, with a call to create a wide front and fight the regime. Activists took part in the overthrow of Slobodan Milošević. Dapčević died in 2001. The Second Party Congress was in July 2002. Party members took part in many protests over the years, including an anti-NATO protest in Belgrade, joining other left-wing organizations.

Activities

While seeking revolution, its political activities are limited to organizing demonstrations and carrying out propaganda. The party participates in the International Coordination of Revolutionary Parties and Organizations.
