Belgian Communist Party

 

(BCP; Partie Communiste de Belgique), founded at the end of 1920 as a result of the unification of the Flemish (founded 1919) and the Walloon (founded at the beginning of 1920) Communist groups, which arose in Belgium during the upsurge in the workers’ movement under the influence of the Great October Socialist Revolution.

The BCP joined the Comintern, defended the Soviet Union, and supported the struggle of the Belgian workers for their economic rights. The organ of the BCP was the newspaper L’Ouvrier communiste. With the help of the Comintern, the BCP was united in September 1921 with the Communist Party, which had been founded in May 1921 by J. Jacquemotte on the basis of the group Friends of the Exploited, which had left the Belgian Workers’ Party. The two groups formed the Communist Party of Belgium.
