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 (IGCL). 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:

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.

Comrade Olivier Has Passed Away (Michel Olivier-Michel Roux)

The following tribute cannot be limited to what the IGCL as such knew of comrade Olivier. Most of his militant life was spent within the organizational framework of the International Communist Current.

  • To March toward Generalized War, the European Bourgeoisies are Forced to Attack the Proletariat More and More.

    In the previous issue, we tried to show how the economic policies pursued by the Biden administration – “Bidenomics” – represented both the first steps in adapting the American production apparatus to the drive towards generalized imperialist war, and an economic, political and ideological attack on the proletariat. The following article, (...)

  • The Prague "Anti-War Congress": Influence and Danger of So-Called "Internationalist" Anarchism

    We reproduce here an “Appeal” for an “anti-war congress” launched by various groups, most of them anarchist, but whose driving force seems to be the revolutionary group Class War - also known by its Czech name, Tridni Valka [15] – more or less descended from or influenced by the Groupe communiste internationaliste (GCI-IGC). We are following up the (...)

  • Contribution: Against Individualism and Circle Spirit "2.0" in the 2020s

    A new generation of communist militants has been emerging in recent years.

How can “conscious” individuals oppose this dramatic (...)
