Resolution of the 15th Congress of the ICC on the exclusion of the members of the "fraction"
(Translated from french by the fraction)

1) The territorial press of the ICC highlighted and denounced the fact that some of the texts published on Internet by the alleged "internal fraction of the ICC" (Bulletin of the IFICC n°14) constituted not only one deliberated violation on the security requirements applied in our organization but more especially a true work to the service of the police apparatus of the bourgeois State. In other words, the "fraction" behaved on this occasion as a true police informer. In the two letters sent February 3 rd and March 6 th 2003, by the central organ of the ICC to the members of the "IFICC" to ask them whether they intended to present an appeal to the 15 th congress with respect to the positions adopted towards them by the extraordinary conference of the ICC and the autumn 2002 Pan-American conference, they were also asked to state on the nature of these behaviors. The first letter request them to answer the following questions:
- "What is the «strictly political» interest to deliver the date of our conference in Mexico to the police force via the Internet site of the «fraction» ?
- What is the «strictly political» interest to deliver the true initials of one of our militants – denounced like the «true chief» of the ICC - on the Internet site of the «fraction» ?
- Does such a publicity play into the police's hands ? Yes or no ?"

The second letter of the ICC, noting that the one addressed by the IFICC, February 12 th , to the ICC does not answer this request, returns to this question :
"… we think that the Congress should know if, personally, you claim the publication of this information on the Internet site of the «fraction», or if it is a decision of the«fraction» which you do not defend personally. If you would not answer personally to this point, that would like to say for us that you make yours this decision of the «fraction» ".
The letter of March 18 th sent by the "fraction", does not even mention this question. In addition, the ICC did not receive any individual letter of members of the "fraction". The significance of that is clear : for the "IFICC" like a whole and for each one of its members, the publication on the Internet site of information making playing into the police's hands is by no means a skid. It is deliberately and fully that each member of the "fraction" assumes the behaviors of police informer adopted by this one in its Bulletin n°14.

2) With respect to the police informers and to those which, even if they are not directly belonging to the service of the police, adopt an attitude of police informer, for the organizations of the workers movement there is not other possible attitude but the exclusion. The ICC cannot react differently towards each element who are part of the "fraction" today. Among them, Jonas was already excluded from the ICC and his refusal to present an appeal to the Congress, means that from now on this decision could not be questionned. Thus his case is not concerned with the present resolution. Concerning the other members of the "fraction", i.e. Aglaé, Alberto, Leonardo, Juan, Olivier, Sergio and Vicente, the 15 th Congress thus decides their exclusion of the ICC.
By making this decision, the Congress is fully conscious that this one has nothing to do with the position adopted by the extraordinary Conference of March 2002 with respect to Aglaé, Juan, Olivier and Sarah and by the Pan-American conference of the beginning of December 2002 with respect to Alberto, Leonardo, Sergio and Vicente. Thus, these conferences had noted that, because of the repeated violations of the statutes of the ICC, their refusal to begin to respect the latter and their claimed willingness to do in common a work with an element excluded from the ICC for political unworthiness, these elements had deliberately placed themselves apart from the organization. At the same time, these conferences had by no means considered that these elements could never be reintegrated within our organization if they were able to adopt behaviors compatible with a collective work within it. Today, it is not a question for the ICC to establish the report that a certain number of its members put themselves apart from the organization. To these elements, and because of their behavior of deliberated and assumed police informers, the supreme authority of the ICC decides to impose the most serious sanction envisaged by the statutes:exclusion. By doing this, the congress fully assumes the implications of this decision such that they appear explicitly in the statutes : it is a final exclusion.

3) The statutes of the ICC provide that before imposing a sanction towards one of its members, the organization has to hear his defense. Taking into account the fact that the concerned elements didn't appear to the Congress, despite they were invited, this one could not hear them. Consequently, the decision of the Congress can only be a decision of principle which can eventually become executory only after these elements present their defense. Insofar as the Congress cannot be maintained in a permanent session waiting of the latter, in particular because the majority of the elements concerned are thousands of kilometers away from the congress, the 15 th Congress of the ICC names a specific commission invested of the mandate to hear the defense of each one of these elements and to make executory or no the decision of principle of the Congress.

4) The conditions of constitution and operation of this commission are the following :
- it is made up of 5 members of the ICC belonging to 5 different sections, 3 of the European continent and 2 of the American continent ;
- it is mainly made up of militants not members of the central organ of the ICC ;
- it will have to examine with the greatest attention the explanations and the arguments provided by each element concerned.
In addition, the latter will be free to present himself individually or together in front of the Commission, as well as to being represented by one or several of them. Each one of them will also have the possibility of asking for the replacement of 1 to 3 of the 5 Members of the Commission designated by the Congress by militants of the ICC of his choice, knowing obviously that the final Commission could not be with variable geometry. It will comprise 5 members and it will be made up at least by two members designated by the congress and no more than 3 militants of the ICC correspondent to the wishes expressed by the majority of the elements concerned.
The decision to make executory the exclusion of each one of these elements could be made only with the majority of the 4/5 of the Members of the Commission.

5) The present resolution will be communicated to each element concerned which will have from the date of reception two weeks to indicate to the IS or the country section where he lives if he wishes to present his defense. If he does not answer within this time, that will mean that he gives up making this step which will make executory the decision of principle adopted by the Congress against him. As soon as he expresses the wish to present his defense, the composition of the Commission such as it is envisaged by the Congress will then be indicated to him and he will have two other weeks to ask possible changes in the composition of the commission and two additional weeks to prepare his defense which it will be allowed to present orally or written to the Commission. The latter receives mandate of the congress to organize its work as well as possible for its effectiveness and also with the objective to disturb the least possible the general activities of the ICC. It will have to communicate its decisions at the IS at the latest June 15, 2003.
