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.

2nd Communiqué on the Strikes in France (3 January 2020)

The strikes that began on the 5th of December continue in a number of sectors, particularly those related to public services. Readers living outside France should note that there has been a mobilization against the abolition of pension systems in favour of a new system that significantly postpones the effective retirement age and considerably (...)

In the Face of the Sabotage of Union Leaderships, Lead the Struggle on a Class Basis! (Le Prolétaire- Proletarian, International Communist Party, December 21, 2019))

The day of action on 17 December was an undeniable success. While the transport strike (SNCF-railway, RATP-Paris subway and buses, etc.) continued, it was marked by renewed mobilisation in the streets (twice as many demonstrators as on Dec. 10) and strikes, particularly in schools. That day the strike movement affected refineries and other (...)

Do Everything to Help the Private Sector to Engage in the Strike! Do Everything to Broaden the Struggle! Do Everything to Extend the Strike to all Sectors! (December 11)

Training, encouraging, helping, the private sector workers to engage in struggle and strike action is the priority of the day if we want to make the government move back! Blocking transport will not be enough. The proxy strike, which puts most of the weight of the struggle on the railway workers and RATP [Paris region Transport] workers alone, (...)

Communique on the Strikes in France - IGCL, December 8th 2019

Very little mention is made in the international press of the strike movement and the massive demonstrations that are affecting France and paralysing in particular transport, trains, buses, subways and planes since Thursday 5 December. Strikes also affect many sectors of the public service, as some private companies, where it is much more (...)

Revolution or War n°13

(Semestrial - October 2019)

  • Class Struggle and Historical Future

    The historical alternative revolution or war is not just a slogan or a theme of communist propaganda. Nor is it a simple and vague historical perspective for tomorrow. It is already a central element of the current situation. Since the economic impasse of capitalism, the crisis, can only deepen, revolution and war become factors whose (...)

  • International Situation

    "Saving the Planet" Requires the Destruction of the Capitalist State and the Exercise of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat!

    No one doubts today, especially in the face of global warming, that capitalism is ’destroying the planet’ and threatening the very survival of the human species. Even the most fervent followers, ideologues and propagandists of ’capitalism economic liberalism’, such as the Financial Times and The Economist, which in recent days have declared that (...)

  • On the Crisis : Where is the World Going ? (Nuevo Curso)

    Lacking space in this issue, time and strength too, we are not in a position to present a state, even if only a summary one, of the worsening economic crisis of capital that worries the bourgeoisie itself so much. The measures taken from 2008 onwards and the ’subprime’ crisis have not succeeded in ’relaunching the machine’ as in previous crises. (...)

  • A Look Back at the Yellow Vest Movement in France and the Inter-classist Revolts in the World

    The yellow vest movement challenged revolutionaries and many proletarians, at least those aware of the need to fight for the defense of their class interests, in relation to their experience, their vision, even their scheme, of the development of the class struggle. There were those who glorified the movement for its apparent radicality, in (...)

  • Greetings to Klasbatalo’s Affiliation to the Internationalist Communist Tendency

    We welcome the membership of the group Klasbatalo of Canada to the ICT [45]. In fact, it objectively strengthens not only the ICT but also the Communist Left as a whole. First, it is important to quickly clarify to some uninformed readers the subtleties of the development of the Communist Left in Canada. They may remember the original (...)

  • Debate within the Proletarian Camp

    On the Period of Transition between Capitalism and Communism

    We take the initiative to publish in our pages Fredo Corvo’s introduction to GIK’s Fundamental Principles because this introduction contributes in its own way to the debate on the transitional period within the party in the making. Indeed, the introduction retraces and situates the debate on the transitional period within the framework of the (...)

  • Struggle against Political Opportunism and Revisionism

    The "Bukharin Fraction" of 1918 Contrary to the Communist Left

    Since the publication in French of the complete writings of the journal Kommunist by the publisher Smolny, it seems fashionable in the revolutionary milieu to claim the tradition of the struggle of this ephemeral fraction within the Bolshevik party. Even the Communist Workers Organisation publishes some articles in an English translation in (...)
