Critical balance sheet of the 2011 Indignados movement in Spain

Ten years on, what lessons can we draw from the Indignados movement? Understanding past struggles with a critical analysis, while looking to the future, is a source of strength and encouragement for the proletariat in a historical situation that is deteriorating over time at all levels: pandemic, economic crisis, barbaric wars, environmental destruction, moral collapse...

Capitalism is War - War on Capitalism!

A selection of articles, analyses, leaflets and statements on the unfolding inter-imperialist war following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Some impressions of the ICC meetings of the 5th and 6th of March 2022

We publish here two contributions from close sympathisers about the war in Ukraine. The first is an account of the two public meetings held in English in March; the second a statement of support for the ICC's response to the war.

Brief position statement on the war in Ukraine

I agree with the content of the ICC’s leaflet denouncing the war and with the articles ‘Ukraine: the worsening of military tensions in Eastern Europe’ and ‘The ruling class demands sacrifices on the altar of war’.

Joint statement of groups of the international communist left about the war in Ukraine

The organisations of the communist left must mount a united defence of their common heritage of adherence to the principles of proletarian internationalism, especially at a time of great danger for the world's working class. The return of imperialist carnage to Europe in the war in Ukraine is such a time.

Understanding militarism and decomposition

We draw reader's attention to our 1990 orientation text on militarism and decomposition, which in our view remains an indispensable guide to understanding the increasingly irrational and chaotic nature of imperialist wars today.
