Welcome to Intransigence

Intransigence is an online journal which is a joint undertaking between a few groups (Workers' Offensive, Gulf Coast Communist Fraction, Internationalist Workers Group, and Klasbatalo Collective) and individuals in North America. It is subtitled “Publication of the Internationalists in North America”. Its self-proclaimed goal is “to aid in the regrouping effort that is currently underway, serving as both a medium for internal discussion and a means of publicizing these views.”

Welcome to “Emancipación” (Spain)

We welcome the formation in Spain of a new nucleus of the future world party of the proletariat, one of the many fruits of the work of the Nuevo Curso blog collective from which they have sprung. We see them as a new, young and vital expression of the development of a movement based on the historic acquisitions of the class and look forward to working and exchanging with them as they develop. We reproduce here the translation of their initial founding announcement, as well as the introduction to it by Nuevo Curso. -Internationalist Communist Tendency

Back to the Future: Rebranding Social Democracy

There are two ways to read Inventing the Future. One is a fairly innocent critique of the “post-68 left”, and an outline of how to build a desirable post-capitalist future through a flawed Gramscian framework. The other is a critique of working class self-activity, and a call for a benevolent class of technocrats who can gradually reform capitalism for the masses.

On the Future International

The following article is intended to be part of a longer document or pamphlet of the Internationalist Communist Tendency (ICT) and has been drafted by the CWO for further discussion in the ICT. It should thus be read in the context of earlier documents which we have already published on the party and class issue which put the issue in its wider context.

Capital's Health Dilemma

An article published on October 2017 in the first issue of 'Intransigence', a collaborative effort between the Workers' Offensive group in Miami and other internationalist communists in the United States. Its basic thesis is that the current crisis of healthcare in the United States is rooted in the inherent dysfunctionality of capitalism and only a communist society will be able to deliver care to everybody consistent with their own unique needs.

The Dead-End of Racial Identity Politics

An article published on October 2017 in the first issue of 'Intransigence', a collaborative effort between the Workers' Offensive group in Miami and other internationalist communists in the United States.

The Electoral Trap

An article published on October 2017 in the first issue of 'Intransigence', a collaborative effort between the Workers' Offensive group in Miami and other internationalist communists in the United States.
