The political slogan Workers of the world, unite! is one of the rallying cries from The Communist Manifesto (1848) by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels (German: Proletarier aller Länder, vereinigt Euch!, literally Proletarians of all countries, unite!, but soon popularised in English as Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains!). A variation of this phrase, Workers of all lands, unite!, is also inscribed on Marx’s tombstone. The essence of the slogan is that members of the working classes throughout the world should cooperate to defeat capitalism and achieve victory in the class conflict.

The phrase was used by the Industrial Workers of the World in their publications and songs, and was a mainstay of their protest banners.

Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin (born Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili; 18 December [1878 – 1953) was a Soviet revolutionary and politician who was the leader of the Soviet Union from 1924 until his death in 1953. He held power as General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (1922–1952) and Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Soviet Union (1941–1953). Initially governing the country as part of a collective leadership, he consolidated power to become a dictator by the 1930s. Ideologically adhering to the Leninist interpretation of Marxism, he formalised these ideas as Marxism–Leninism, while his own policies are called Stalinism.
