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.

(September 18th 2021)

The sudden announcement of the creation of a military alliance between the United States, Australia and Great Britain, the AUKUS, a sort of Asian and uniquely Anglo-Saxon NATO, represents a step, if not a leap, of extreme importance in the march towards generalized imperialist war. The event seemed to us to be of such importance that we (...)

  • Historical Course and Communist Responsabilities

    "What is it about, more precisely? It’s a question of clarifying the opposition between war and revolution, the bourgeoisie and the proletariat; but not in the abstract, with a catch-all formula, but in a new course of situations, proper to the extreme phase of capitalist decadence, where the historical climate remains permanently charged with (...)

    US Capitalism’s Offensive and Alternative Revolution or War

    “Now, after just 100 days, I can report to the nation: America is on the move again. Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength.

  • Workers’ Struggle in Argentina and Canada

    We reproduce here a statement of the revolutionary group Emancipation [12] which draws a number of lessons from workers’ struggles in Argentina, both on the conditions for the extension of struggles and its sabotage by the unions. Had we been able to intervene directly, it is highly probable – on reading the document – that we would have found (...)

  • Debate within the Proletarian Camp

    Statement on The International Communist Current’s Platform

    The ICC platform [16] was adopted at its first congress in 1976. Since then, it has undergone some "rectifications decided at the 3rd, 7th and 14th Congresses in 1979, 1987 and 2001" (Introduction to the Platform [17]). It should be noted that the version available and on which we base our position does not incorporate the opportunist (...)

  • What Future for the ICT’s 1919 Journal in North America? Publication of the Communist Left or Trojan Horse of Leftism?

    "Revolutionary ideas are not the property of any single organization, and the affairs of any component part of the proletarian camp are of interest to it all. While reserving our right to criticize, we unreservedly must welcome any moves in other organizations which we feel express a positive dynamic... The issues raised by the WR Congress are (...)

  • Contribution  : Leftist “Anti-Capitalism” against the Proletariat

    We publish below an individual contribution by a comrade which aimed to denounce the bourgeois character of the "anti-capitalism" advocated by many left and leftist parties. It also wanted to point out the use and recuperation by leftism of today’s councilist theses, based on the fetishism of self-organisation and on the opposition to the (...)
