IGNOMINY HAS NO LIMIT

Since its constitution, our fraction hasn't ceased to suffer the most defamatory and the most untrue accusations from the present ICC central organs.

Despite we presented the most unquestionable refutations and despite nobody in the proletarian camp has accepted these slanders seriously - they have even been reversed against our accusers -, nothing seems to be able to stop the hatred and the ignonimy of these people against our fraction.

The last one (end of September) of their dirty behaviour is the publication in their press (Révolution internationale 350) and on their Internet web site of a statement which denounces us, whose date is late May 22nd, that they obviously squeezed through grafts, manouvers and blackmail, from the NCI militants of Argentina.

We publish below a Declaration - which rejects their previous statement - that these same militants have done at once and which responds to the vile and destructive methods used by the present leaders of the ICC. Until when the sincere militants who still remain today under these bastards' thumb, are going to accept, without turning a hair, that the worst dishonesties be made in their name ?


DECLARATION OF THE CIRCULO DE COMUNISTAS INTERNACIONALISTAS

The International Communist Current is publishing in its own territorial press and on its Internet web site a declaration made in May 2004 by the former Nucleo Comunista Internacional (International Communist Nucleus), today Círculo de Comunistas Internacionalistas (Internationalist Communists' Circle). This Declaration was receiving favourably the accusations unloaded by the ICC against a group of comrades who were expulsed of this political current and who formed the IFICC [Internal Fraction of the ICC] with very serious accusations such as being "police", "bourgeois State agents" and "agent provocateur". We, the members of this small nucleus, want to express that we don't agree any more with these accusations.

Nevertheless, we must raise the following interrogations : Why has been made this declaration? Why do we reject these expressions today ? Why does the ICC decide to publish this declaration 6 months after ? Let's go by part :

WHY HAS BEEN MADE THIS DECLARATION OF REPUDIATION OF THE INTERNAL FRACTION ?

Our small nucleus is situated in an isolated place and was without any information about the vicissitudes through which was passing the Proletarian Political Milieu, and more particularly the ICC, since the expulsion of founding members of this current and who, today, form the Internal Fraction of the ICC. Our nucleus was in a difficult situation above all since it had no relating materials except the notes appeared in the various issues of the International Review in which was "reported the acts of violence of the Internal Fraction". Confronted with accusations of such large scale, and also because the silence followed by the comrades of the Internal Fraction which has been broken for the spanish language readers with the publication and the report of the history of their expulsion in 2001 in the Communist Bulletin 25-26, we suffered a profound impression within our group which ended in selfcriticisms for the great haste with which we wrote the "condemnation of the IFICC" with accusations of such important scale and for having echoed the words of the ICC.

Our nucleus aknowledges that it has acted with a great dose of impressionism which made it adopt a precipitated position that we vigourously reject.

WHY DO WE REJECT THESE ACCUSATIONS ?

Today, we reject these accusations unloaded in this Declaration of May 2004 because they are not based on an independant investigation about the ICC accusations against the Internal Fraction. It was the unilateral voice of the ICC which, through the adoption of the illfated stalinist lessons used in 1938 to liquidate the old bolshevik vanguard, intends today to do the same : to politically liquidate revolutionary comrades for the single fact of disagreeing with its political line.

It appears curious and, at the same time, alarming for our small group in Argentina that all the crisis of the ICC outcome with accusations against the opponents to the majoritarian or official position for being State agents, parasites, and a whole range of senseless and unfounded accusations ; and even worst that it has elaborated thesis on the parasitism which were published in the International Review in order to provide foundation to those stupidities.

The reading, not only of the accusations that the ICC unloaded against the Internal Fraction, but also of the defence of serious organizations as the IBRP and the PCI-Le Prolétaire, amongst others, led our group not only to criticize itself but also to reject an absolutly erroneous position adopted in a precipitated manner, according to which the comrades of the IFICC, yertesday foundators of the ICC as many others, and today outside this current, would be nothing less than police agents with all that this term signify.

WHY DOES THE ICC DECIDE TO PUBLISH THIS DECLARATION SIX MONTHS LATER ?

Various hypothesis can be made. One of them is to take advantage of the isolation in which is a foreign group not belonging to this current for getting its support to the slanders against these comrades because these insults uttered against the members of the Internal Fraction don't make but laughs since it doesn't exist any evidences of any type against these comrades.

They publish this Declaration 6 months later. So many time for attacking a small group. What is hiding behind this attack against the IFICC ? Destroying and disqualifying these comrades ? Destroying and dividing our small nucleus ? And so to get a victory against powerful opponents and against all those who don't fully agree with their line ? All is possible.

Thus, our group, as the NCI continuity, has decided individually and collectively to reject our Declaration of May against the IFICC which is published in the territorial press and on the Internet site of the ICC. We have seen our error and we don't want to carry on the same way because we would act, if we would do it so, not as communists who reject the stalinist policy of expulsion for political disagreements.

We are conscious that this Declaration rejecting the ICC, will provoke its anger and that it will accuse our group - one more - of parasites and of the whole palette of epithets it has accumstomed everybody. But, we must say the truth. We didn't want to realize this declaration but the events have accelerated and we're obliged to take that attitude with this simple Declaration.

But it's necessary to put a brake on the slanders and to Goebbels' policy of lying and lying in order it remains something. No, we must say it's enough.

For this, the Circle unanimously decides :

- TO REJECT THE CONTENT OF THE MAY 2004 DOCUMENT PUBLISHED BY THE ICC ;

- TO SOLIDARIZE WITH THE EXPULSED COMRADES OF THE INTERNAL FRACTION OF THE ICC AND REVILED BY THE ICC SINCE THEY ARE NOT AGENTS OF THE BOURGEOISIE, NOR AGENT PROVOCATEUR;

- TO REJECT THE POLICY OF STATE AGENTS ACCUSATIONS AGAINST ANYONE WHO IS NOT IN AGREEMENT WITH THE OFFICIAL POLICY ;

- TO MANIFEST VERY CLEARLY THAT THESE COMRADES ARE PART OF THE PROLETARIAN POLITICAL MILIEU AS WELL AS THE ICC ;

- TO SEND THIS DECLARATION TO ALL THE POLITICAL GROUPS OF THE PROLETARIAN POLITICAL MILIEU.

Some comments and remarks of our fraction about the new step done by the "ICC"

The reading of the previous Declaration and of the NCI text from May 2004 published by Révolution internationale 350 (publication of the ICC in France) which denounces our fraction "as an organization of agents provocateurs at the bourgeois State service", drives us to make the following remarks.

First, we must notice that it's really with "great haste" - according to the very words of the Circle comrades - that the NCI adopted this text. It means it was under the pressure and even under the dictation - as proves it the way it's written - of the "ICC" delegation sent to the Argentinian comrades.

Then, it's without any mention of the ex-NCI rejection of this text, rejection it nevertheless knows, that the present ICC publishes it. Other graft, other dirty manouver, other "omission". If some still could pretend to believe to the innumerable accusations of the ICC, there they have the obvious proof of its systematic lies.

Finally, the willingness of ignominious manipulation and of blackmail against the Argentinian comrades appears clearly in the last point of the text, point 14, that one made them vote : "Authorize the ICC, if it thinks adapted, the publication of the present text for any purpose it will consider pertinent". Isn't it a blank cheque, "a debt on future", whose aim was to wedge the comrades for ever ?

Such practices, if they are common in the ranks of the bourgeoisie and specially within the stalinist and freemasonery organizations, are fully extraneous to the relations of confidence that must link the revolutionary militants. They have to be banned and fought with not any concession.

And, it's at the very moment when the ex-NCI is breaking politically with the ICC, that it declares itself in solidarity with our fraction, and that, above all, it is commiting itself in a process of discussion with the IBRP, the very day before the first Public Meeting of this last one in Paris, that the ICC - using point 14 - chooses to publish this text "adopted" several months ago. It's thus not by luck if this text is published today.

It' an attempt to sow discord and discredit on the Argentinian comrades and on their group, the Internationalists Communists Circle. It's an additional attempt to renew the ignominious accusations policy against our fraction (accusations which we gave to the most unquestionable refutations). This willingness of destruction of the opponents, of spreading scorched earth policy around itself, thus comes to mark a new step. But this time, it's openly and before everybody's eyes and against new revolutionary elements who are looking to get closer to the Communist Left.

The goal of this new manoeuver is clear and we denounce it as such : it's an attempt to sow suspicion, distrust and division among the IBRP, our fraction and the comrades of the ex-NCI ; here it matters above all to discredit and to break, to destroy, any dynamic of discussion and regroupement at the very moment this one develops concretly through the improvement of true discussion spaces as are the public meetings of the IBRP in various geographical zones (Germany, France...).

This last dirty trick of the liquidationism doesn't only attack our fraction. Nor the single Círculo de Comunistas Internacionalistas. But it attacks the true ICC itself, the IBRP too, and the whole "proletarian camp". It's a declaration of open war against all this camp. To destroy it.

It makes one sick. It gives one nausea. But everybody must fight back against it too. Nobody can evade the issue. No hesitation. No concession.
