Coming from a split which occurred in 2009 within the IFICC, our group carries on fully defending the fundamental political positions and orientations of that one, in particular - and beyond the intervention that, as communists, we have to lead towards our class : :
- the struggle against opportunism which, today, threats and even sometimes strongly weakens the "Communist Left", as it is the case for the present ICC;
- the essential struggle for the regroupment which is vital for the proletariat and its revolutionary perspective, of the "Communist Left" forces.
Our present bulletin totally takes back and continues the practical political work already undertaken in the Bulletin of the IFICC.
New website since 2014:
--> Revolution or War <--
Journal of the International Group of the Communist Left
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. 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.
International Communist Bulletin 1 (may 8, 2010)
Extracts of the French and Spanish versions
The texts translated and available in English are in red. The others aren't translated into English.
Warning : the translations into English we do, are made by comrades whose knowledge of this language is very relative. Thus, besides the lack of easiness for the reading, our English texts may present some mistakes and confusions which aren't political but "technical". One can refer to the French and Spanish versions.
Call to the Proletarian Camp:
The Communist Left must face up its responsibilities,
The situation and its perspectives requires it
The present situation of capitalism obviously needs that the workers fight back massively and everywhere in order to reject and make fail the plans and policies of the world bourgeoisie. But it requires too that the whole system, since it is clearly bankrupt, is explicitly questionned and that the revolutionary perspective be loudly and strongly defended ... In this situation, the communist forces, even though weak today, have an enormous responsibility.
Where the Fraction of the International Communist Left comes from ? Who are we ?
The Internal Fraction of the ICC that existed since 2001, has split up into 2 parts... the ILCF continues entirely defending the positions and fundamental political leanings of this one.
Intervention of the fraction:
International leaflet (Fraction of the ICL and Internationalist Communist of Montréal)
"The Working Class of Greece Shows the Way"
We publish here the international leaflet we keep on distributing at the moment with the comrades of the Internationalist Communist of Montreal.
- Massacre of young people in Ciudad Juárez (Mexico) :
From militarization to State Terrorism
Struggle for regroupment:
- Letters of the Internationalist Communists of Montréal
Correspondence with the Sympathizers of the Communist Left in Australia
"We are writing to you to inform you of our desire to begin a series of organised discussions between sympathisers of the Communist Left across Australia."
Our response to the Call of the comrades from Australia
We want to respond to the letter you sent to the Internal Fraction of the ICC and to the Communist Internationalists of Montréal - we guess you mailed it to much more groups and comrades around the world.
About the understanding of the present historical situation:
- Considerations on the present historical situation (Response to comrade GS)
Struggle against opportunism:
Correspondence with a comrade of the IWG/GIO
"It is easy for comrades here, perhaps young comrades, to confuse this bourgeois humanist perspective for their own revolutionary perspective."
Struggle against the non-proletarian ideologies
Response to the Grupo Socialista Libertario (Mexico)
We publish here a correspondence we had recently with a member of the Grupo Socialista Libertario (GSL) from Mexico. This organization openly claims its anarchism and has developed, these late years, political links with the "official" ICC. In our response, we affirm that anarchism has been for the least an ideology "foreign" to the proletariat and that, since more than a century, has put itself clearly at the service of the ruling class.

Call on support
We want to thank our readers who understand and support our activity in different ways :
writings, material or financial contributions.
Editing, printing and mailing our bulletin means an important financial effort related to the scarces resources we have.
The evolution of the situation, the fight we carry on against the opportunist ICC drift and for the preservation of this organisation's contributions for more than 30 years, all our activities in order to strenghten our class and its vanguard (regroupment labor, debates within the proletarian camp, intervention), all of this requires, among other things, an important financial effort.
So, we encourage the interested readers in our political labor and in the analysis we defend, to give us their financial support taking out a subscription of our Bulletin, and distributing it.
