About Us

The Red Flag is a communist website providing revolutionary news, analysis and one of the largest available archives of communist theory on the internet. We serve the struggle for the refounding of the Communist Party of Switzerland as a party distinct and opposed to all ruling class parties and the socialist revolution in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, that is for a the new and red Switzerland. We support all people who fight for this goal, a struggle in which the Communist Party of Switzerland (Red Faction) is playing the role of vanguard in formation.

Security

When using this website, please consider using the Tor browser and the Tails operating system. This is for your own safety. It is well-documented that websites like ours are monitored by both domestic and foreign intelligence services, and with the recent passing of the law on police measures against terrorism in Switzerland, those who sympathize with our views are considered “terrorist endangerers”, because they could carry out “efforts to influence or transform the State order” and could be subjected to house arrest, regular interrogations and contact bans without trial. Our website has in fact already been censored, under pretenses of communist propaganda.

We reserve our democratic right to spread information about the proletarian revolutionary movement in Switzerland and about the world revolution, and will not allow ourselve to be censored.

Onion Service and Clearnet Site

Because of the censorship our website has experienced, we run our website on an onion service, that is to say a Tor backend, which is practically impossible to be removed from the internet or censored. On the basis of this backend, we set up clearnet websites, and once a clearnet site is taken down, we set up a new one on the basis of our Tor backend. In this way we ensure that the red flag can never be lowered.

This backend can be accessed using the Tor browser and is the most secure way to access The Red Flag. We ask of all our readers to bookmark the following link, so that the can continue accessing our site in case a clearnet URL gets banned.
