Democracy and Class Struggle welcomes the formation of the Communist Party in the Donetsk People's Republic and we urge your new party to develop the class struggle, the mass line and People's War and oppose some of the conservative populism we have seen emanating from the Donetsk People's Republic.
"A populist perspective prevents the recognition of any antagonism internal to “the people,” transposing the source of all conflict outward onto external groups
