“Internationalist Communist Party” or “International Communist Party” ?
The Spanish-language website of the ICC published the article "Battaglia Comunista: On the Origins of the International Communist Party" ("Battaglia Comunista: Sobre los orígenes del Partido Comunista Internacional").
My apologies for not addressing the certainly important content of the article here.
But the article carries a confusing title.
Is it about the Partito Comunista Internazionalista with Battaglia Comunista as its organ ?
Or is it about one of the many groups with the name Partito Comunista Internazionale ?
If one reads the article further, it becomes clear that it is first and foremost about the Partito Comunista Internazionalista, the organisation with as its organs Battaglia Comunista and Promoteo, the main organisation of the Internationalist Communist Tendency.
Only in note 3 accompanying the article , a note which clarifies much, is there explicit mention of the Partito Comunista Internazionale (around Bordiga).
Perhaps the confusing title is just a computer "quirk" that made the last 4 letters disappear.
Indeed only a few letters differ, but still important, also because there is e.g. also a fundamental difference in the attitude towards the proletarian political milieu and towards the ICC between on the one hand the PCInternazionalista and on the other hand e.g. the PCInternazionale with as organ "le prolétaire" or the PCInternazionale with as organ "il partito comunista".
Let us be honest : it is surely difficult enough with 5 groupings with the name "International Communist Party", according to the "International Library of the Communist Left".
Let us all be more careful about the names of organisations.
If such errors do crop up, let us all correct them as quickly as possible.
Thank you comrades.
According to the "International Library of the Communist Left" http://www.sinistra.net/con/addresses.html there are currently 5 groups with the name "International Communist Party" :
Some of these "parties" are most likely dying out.
The name of all these "parties" can be shortened to PCInt and then cause confusion with the Partito Comunista Internazionalista (Battaglia Comunista) or also PCI and then cause confusion among themselves.
It is also "lucky" that the best-known bearer of the abbreviation PCI ("Partido Comunista Italiano"), the Stalinist and later "Eurocommunist" party, was disbanded in 1991.
