The phrase, one of the most famous rallying cries of communism, comes from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels's The Communist Manifesto. A variation ("Workers of all lands, unite!") is inscribed on Marx's tombstone. The actual translation is more normally given as "Working men", or "Proletarians of all countries, unite!" (Proletarier aller Länder, vereinigt euch!).
