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.

    Anti-China Military Alliance between the US, Australia and the UK? A Significant Step of the Dynamic towards Generalized War

    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 Covid-19 pandemic: further evidence of the objective historical necessity of communism

    In March of 2021, in a video call with fellow Conservative members of Parliament, Boris Johnson hailed the rapid development of numerous effective vaccines against Covid-19 as the fruits of capitalism and greed [3]. He immediately took back what he said, possibly because he instinctively knew that capitalist triumphalism at a time of unfolding (...)

    Contribution: Communism and Community

    The Communist Left has always defended the theoretical unity of Marxism. This had two main purposes. The first was, and still is, to block the way to the various versions of the left of capital which, although universally claiming a ’Marxist’ heritage, simply takes here and there small fragments that please them from the texts of Marx or Engels (...)
