The proletariat has to take up the struggle against religious fanaticism which reinforces the state and increases divisions within the exploited - Mouvement Communiste and Kolektivně proti kapitálu

Religion is poison

The text against religious "fideism" which forms the body of this leaflet was mostly written before the Charlie Hebdo/Kosher Supermarket attacks and was not intended as a response to these events. But then events forced our hand! Some of the text proved very prescient, particularly the comments about anti-Semitism. Some comrades distibuted this leaflet at the massive "Je suis Charlie" demo. It was possibly the only "political" tract handed out there.
