Revolution or War

<p>Journal of the International Group of the Communist Left</p>

Revolution or War is the journal of the International Group of the Communist Left (IGLC). It is the result of the fusion of CIK- Klabastalo and FICL which dissolved beforehand in November 2013. Our unity is based on the following main points:
1 – For our class, this vital unification of Left Communist forces (whose main component is the ICT) is an essential step for the future and indispensable formation of the class party for the revolution. This fundamental objective also requires uncompromising struggle against the penetration of bourgeois ideology within the Communist Left, especially against the opportunism and sectarianism that still plague this environment.
2 – Today, this necessary process can only strengthen communists’ ability to assume the responsibilities that the proletariat has raised: to be its most conscious and determined fraction.

Communiqué on the movement of yellow vests in France – January 27th 2019

The eleventh Saturday of the ’yellow vest’ movement in France, on 26 January 2019, saw the mobilization continue throughout France.

  • Communiqué on the American withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear agreement: A step in the march towards generalized imperialist war (10 May 2018).

    Trump’s decision to denounce the Iranian nuclear agreement is an important step in the evolution of ’international relations’, that is imperialist rivalries. The consequences are not only the risks of an immediate extension of the wars in the Middle East, immediately confirmed by the direct confrontation between Iranian and Israeli forces on the (...)

  • Marxism and the National Question

    The end of 2017 was marked by the renewal of nationalist quarrels in Europe. After Scotland, then Flanders in Belgium, Catalan separatism resurfaced in its turn, as did, to a lesser extent, Corsican separatism. These independence movements affecting ’old capitalist nations’ follow the creation of new nations after the explosion of the Eastern (...)

    What is the Party ? (Nuevo Curso)

    We have taken the initiative to translate the following text from the group Nuevo Curso on the issue of the class party for two main reasons.

Political positioning on this aspect is therefore one of the essential elements that separate the real revolutionaries from (...)

    Rosa Luxemburg against feminism

    Supported by the media and the state apparatus in many countries, the bourgeoisie organized major feminist demonstrations, particularly in Spain (also in North America), for Women’s Day on 8 March 2018. The event was rarely repeated in other countries such as France for example. On this occasion, Nuevo Curso’s comrades published the following (...)
