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

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.

It was possibly the only "political" tract handed out there.
