Founded on 11 December 1967, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine is a progressive vanguard organization of the Palestinian working class. It is guided by Marxism-Leninism and, together with other leftwing Palestinian organizations is struggling to build a working-class party. The PFLP aims to mobilize and lead the struggle of the Palestinian masses for the return to Palestine, self-determination, and the establishment of a Palestinian state. These, in turn, are steps along the path of defeating the Zionist entity, liberating all of Palestine, and establishing a democratic Palestinian state where all citizens enjoy equal rights, free from discrimination on the basis of race, sex, or religious belief. Beyond this, the PFLP aims at the establishment of a democratic socialist society.
