The Communist Workers Group (USA) was founded in the Summer of 2012. Following a bitter struggle with the sectarian abstentionists of the Humanist Workers for Revolutionary Socialism (HWRS) and after an unsuccessful attempt by our international comrades to reunite the organization, the CWG (USA) was founded.
We are a Trotskyist tendency in Liaison Committee with the Communist Workers Group of New Zealand Aetoria (CWG-NZ) and the Revolutionary Workers Group of Zimbabwe (RWG-ZIM). We seek regroupment of revolutionary Marxists based on the programmatic conquests of the First Workingmen’s International, the Socialist Second International (until its collapse into reformism and social chauvinism under the nationalistic pressures in the face of imperialist war in 1914,) the first four congresses of the Third International and the critique of and strategies to expose and defeat imperialism, Stalinism, Social Democracy, the popular front, and fascism developed by the Left Opposition and the Fourth International.
We trace the degeneration, betrayal and death of the Fourth International to the collapse of the International Center during WWII and the descent into national Trotskyism by the leading sections. Vern & Ryan stood up to the role of Lora in the defeat of the Bolivian revolution in 1953 yet their critique was rejected and the Fourth International sealed its fate in betrayal. The elevation of Tito and Castro as “unconscious Trotskyists” covered for the Pabloite defeatism in the face of Stalinist expansion.
On this blog we will post articles of our own, our co-thinkers, and those with whom we debate. We will post our perspective on world events as well as, our take on and participation in the class struggle here in the belly of the beast. Our task is to unite with revolutionary Marxists to build a Revolutionary Worker’s International Party with sections in every nation that will help the working masses in the formation of their own democratic organizations (worker’s councils and workers self-defense guards) and prepare them to defeat imperialism and construct a socialist international planned economy based on workers power.
