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.

The Last ICC Attack or The Homage of Vice to Virtue (Communique March 7th 2021)

Once again, the ICC honours the former Internal Fraction of the ICC and the ICGL with a 9500-word text – nothing less! – in which it calls us for the umpteenth time a “police-like group”. To the few readers who might still be frightened by the torrent of accusations, let them know that the IFICC in its time systematically denied each and every one (...)

  • In The Midst of Widespread Confusion, The Compass of The Proletarian Struggle

    “The criteria that guide us in the examination of social antagonisms limited to a sector of the capitalist world are of two kinds: first of all, it is a question of identifying, from an international point of view, the elements that generate the modification of social relations in order to bring out the fundamental antagonism governing the (...)

    Election of Biden: Successful Democratic, Identity and Anti-Racist Campaigns against The US and International Proletariat

    (Communique, November 7th 2020)

    Trump is beaten. After a week of counting the pro-Biden ballots sent in by mail, the announced electoral "remontada" [2], including by Trump himself, did take place. The American bourgeoisie can legitimately shout of success. Isn’t this proof of its political mastery? Didn’t it succeed in imposing the presidential change that it had obviously (...)

  • USA: Lessons from the Teachers’ Struggle: Left-Racialism as a Tool of Union-Sabotage (GCCF)

    We publish below a statement by a comrade of the Gulf Coast Communist Fraction on union action against the proletarian reactions by teachers in the United States to the health risks caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Intersectionality: an Ideological Product of Capitalist Thought

    The concept of intersectionality originally refers to Black feminism [30], a term coined in the late 1980s by the American jurist Kimberlé Crenshaw. The following argument is directly addressed to the proletariat and its organizational forces of the Communist Left. A Marxist critique of this ideology is essential in the period when we see an (...)

  • The Struggle of the Communist Left against “Gramscism”

    We publish below (actually next page) a contribution, originally intended for our internal discussion, on the English-language book published by the Internationalist Communist Tendency, Gramsci Between Marxism and Idealism [37]. The latter brings together a series of articles from the Partito Comunista Internazionalista-Battaglia Comunista, (...)

  • About Onorato Damen’s Gramsci Between Marxism and Idealism

    The publication of the book Gramsci between Marxism and Idealism, based on articles by Damen in his original Italian and in its English translation at the initiative of the ICT, has particularly appealed to us, arousing an interest that we would like to share with the reader of Revolution or War [38]. It is not our intention to go back over (...)

  • Debate within The Proletarian Camp

    Statement on the ICT 2020 Platform

    The Internationalist Communist Tendency (ICT) has written a new ’updated’ version [42] of the platform adopted in 1996 by its antecedent, the International Bureau for the Revolutionary Party (IBRP) [43]. Whoever is convinced that it is appropriate to work centrally in the struggle for "the class party [which] is indispensable to the (...)

  • On The Theses of the "Gauche communiste de France" on The Nature of The State (1946)


    Here we continue the debate we opened in our columns on the period of transition between capitalism and communism by publishing the letter of a comrade. He criticizes the theses of the group Gauche Communiste de France which served as a basis for the position developed and adopted in the 1970s by the ICC. Since his initial letter, the comrade (...)
