ICC site upgrade

The ICC site is going through a series of upgrades and the English pages are next in line. This means that from around 10 September, for a period of two to three weeks, it won't be possible to put up new articles in English or post on the discussion forum. We hope this won't cause too much disruption or inconvenience. We will let readers and forum users know if there are any changes to this schedule by posting on this thread prior to the current upgrade date.

The collectivization of resources within the party

Why not collectivize the resources of every ICC activists internationally? We could imagine the following situation: any income above average world consumption is collectivized in favor of the ICC. Currently, average world consumption is equivalent to ~ $ 700 PPP per month.

This would provide considerable financial resources for ICC's international activity.

Spam Attack

The Forum was recently subjected to a massive spam attack. I estimate around 800 new spam topics were created along with created along with thousands of comments.

The comments and topics have now been deleted, but to prevent further attacks I have had to suspend new account creation for the time being and have deleted a number of new accounts.

I hope that no genuine comrades have been caught up in the crossfire but I can't guarantee that this is not the case as the interface in question is a bit of a blunt instrument.

Maoism The Real Child of Stalinism

Maoism The Real Child of Stalinism

A pamphlet about Maoism from an internationalist perspective.

Table of Contents

  • The position of the working class and the formation of the Communist Party of China

  • The Communist International and the Chinese Revolution

  • Russia, stronghold of anti-revolution

  • The revolutionary struggle between 1925 and 1927

The excess of party cadres leads to the split

In the 19th century, the number and proportion of intellectuals capable of fulfilling the role of cadres was extremely small, leading to a deep tendency towards the fusion of workers' organizations, in order to rationalize a reduced human resource. So think: reformists and revolutionaries, anarchists and communists, Marxists and non-Marxists were accepted in the same party.

Protests in Jordan

Early days yet but these protests are potentially significant not least for imperialism in the region. Al-jazeerah reports this morning that demonstrations have been building up in the provinces for at least the last three months where they have been going on on a daily basis. Saudi Arabia has cut its subsidies to the country and further austerity is the answer as everywhere. There's a danger as seeing these protests, as the left probably will,as "anti-IMF" but they are more profound than that involving all sectors of the oppressed including refugees, men and women and different reglions.
