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:
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 Union Obstacle in the United States: an ICC Article We Support

    Many will be surprised. Below, we publish a recent article from the ICC, which we support for its political criticism of the intervention of the “Bordiguist” group Il Partito Comunista Internazionalista.

    Ten Years of the IGCL: What Balance?

    In the imperialist phase of capitalism, and from a general point of view, there are only two ways out: one capitalist: war; and the other proletarian: revolution. Only workers’ insurrection can prevent the outbreak of war. This fundamental consideration, if it is not to remain a theatrical statement of political ornamentation, must become the (...)
