Our critique of the recent statement of the Internationalist Communist Tendency justifying the creation of a number of local committees around the slogan 'No War But the Class War'
As the acceleration of capitalist barbarism forces more and more people to flee their place of birth, the 'democratic' capitalist states are building new and murderous obstacles to restrict entry to seekers of 'asylum’.
The aim of this article is not to engage in a debate on the political validity of our platform - which we are obviously always prepared to do through an honest confrontation with divergent positions - but to re-establish the reality of it by denouncing the approach of the International Group of the Communist Left (IGCL) aimed exclusively at discrediting our positions, in particular by presenting them as being influenced by councilism.
Defence of the proletarian political milieu.
Marxism and the history of the International Workingmen’s Association (the First International) attest to the validity of the concept of parasitism to characterise destructive behaviour within the political organisations of the proletariat – behaviour totally alien to the methods of the working class.
A first balance-sheet of the international class movement initiated by the "summer of anger" in Britain in 2022.
Our comrade Antonio left us this spring, on the eve of the 25th International Congress of the ICC. He was one of the old founding militants of Révolution Internationale (RI - the French section of the ICC) still present in the organisation
In the first part of this article we traced Jacques Camatte’s political evolution from the Bordigist wing of the communist left to the abandonment of marxism and the theory of the class struggle – into what we term “modernism”. In this part, we will look more closely at this “new” outlook.

Once again, there was a shipwreck in the Mediterranean off the Italian island of Lampedusa on 22 June, with hundreds of people missing. This tragedy occurred just eight days after a boat sank off the coast of Greece. But what is presented as a simple news item is in reality an expression of the chaos caused by crisis-ridden capitalism.
The use of provocation against workers’ struggles has a long history.
Last May, the ICC held public meetings in various countries on the theme: "Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Mexico, China... Going beyond 1968!" The aim was to gain a better understanding of the political, global and historical significance of these struggles, the prospects they offer, but also the major weaknesses that the working class will have to overcome if it is to develop the economic and political dimensions of its struggle.
Article analysing the growing divisions within the Russian ruling class, and their dangerous implications
An article on the need to defend proletarian principles of debate.
Updating and vigorously defending the theory and brutal reality of decomposition, final phase of capitalist decadence.
The last few months have confirmed the brutal acceleration in the decomposition of the capitalist mode of production, with the multiplication of tragedies that have struck the world, particularly as a result of the war in Ukraine. Ongoing destruction, such as that at the Kakhovka dam, and the actions of the Wagner group in Russia, halfway between rebellion and abortive putsch, are fuelling further destabilisation and chaos.
Revolutionary organisations have a duty to denounce irresponsible behaviour that plays into the hands of the ruling class
A review of a book which provides very useful information about the health measures undertaken in the first years of soviet power, but cannot escape leftist illusions about the role of the capitalist state.
An article giving a broad overview of the work of the 25th ICC Congress.
