The Workers’ Communist Party (Danish Arbejderpartiet Kommunisterne, APK) was founded at the Founding Congress held in Copenhagen on 20-23 April 2000.
The APK Founding Congress adopted the general programme “Manifesto for a Socialist Denmark”, the programme of action “Together Against Capital” and the APK statute.
The aim of the APK is to organise the working class as a class, to overthrow imperialism, to overthrow the bourgeoisie from power and to establish the state of the working class, i.e. a socialist Denmark under the rule of the working class, without exploitation and private ownership of the means of production. The ultimate goal is communism throughout the world.
The organisational principle of the APK is democratic centralism.
Historically, the APK is the product of the struggle to defend Marxism-Leninism against modern revisionism in Denmark from the 1960s onwards.
The Party-Founding Communist Organisation October (Oktober), which emerged after the 7th Congress of the Danish Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) (DKP/ML) in 1997 and in the wake of the revisionist degeneration, played an important role in the preparation of the APK and was dissolved with the founding of the APK.
The central organ of the APK is Kommunistisk Politik (Communist Politics), a daily internet edition www.kpnet.dk
The youth organisation of the APK is the Danish Communist Youth Union (DKU).
APK is a member of CIPOML.
