  • Environmental Left

    Many people are aware of the worldwide problem of environmental pollution and destruction. This is making the Earth become increasingly unstable and uninhabitable. Left unchecked, global warming and general ecological destruction will have catastrophic impacts on human, animal, and plant life.



    For too many environmentalists however, green issues and politics are “neither left nor right” or “beyond politics”. But this is not true. Ecological destruction is not an accidental feature of the capitalist system. The insatiable need to increase profits cannot be reformed away as its system of production, for profit and not need, causes huge amounts of environmental destruction and needless waste.



    On the other side, the left cannot ignore environmental issues or afford not to put enough emphasis on them as (1) a classless society does not automatically equate to an environmentally friendly one, although it does have the basis to create one (unlike a capitalist society) and (2) by the time we reach the point of a revolution, the environment may be beyond repair. If the left does not back these issues enough, it will be incapable of creating a future society that is free and equal; such a society must be in harmony with the rest of nature.



    We must not only aim to bring the green movement to the left but also make sure that the left is green.

  • Non-Doctrinaire Communist

    This group is for communists who do not subscribe to a particular doctrine or "ism". If you are a "Marxist-Leninist," Trotskyist, Maoist, Stalinist, Hoxhaist, Luxemburgist, Bordigist, Bukharinist or one of a million other doctrinal "ists", this group is not for you. However, if you recognize that even a blind squirrel can find a theoretical nut, or have no qualms about slaughtering your own sacred cows, or really understand what Marx meant when he said, "If anything is certain, it is that I myself am not a Marxist", then you might just be a non-doctrinaire communist. Group members must be able to agree with the Non-Doctrinaire Communist Credo.

  • Anarcho-pacifism

    A group for those interested in Anarcho-pacifism. All who prefer nonviolent tactics as a PRIMARY approach to revolution are welcome. I'm not necessarily a pacifist, but there needs to be some kind of balance to all the blood thirsty romanticism of violent revolution here. (NOT a sunflower in the barrel, anti self-defense group) Syndicalism, Civil Disobedience, Nuclear disarmament, strike, propaganda, etc



    "“I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.” - Albert Einstein



    "Anarchism must be nonviolent since it is, by definition, opposition to coercion and force, and that since the state is inherently violent, meaningful pacifism must likewise be anarchistic."- Leo Tolstoy (paraphrased from Wiki)



    “We must become the change we want to see.” - Mahatma Gandhi



    "The more violence, the less revolution" - Bart de Ligt

  • Respectful Discussion Activists

    This is a group for the "extremists" of peaceable and considerate discussion. Members of this group hold no place among the radical left for dismissive, sectarian, and adversarial attitudes. Here we value intellectual honesty and safe learning environments as a fundamental part of creating a supportive community and opposing all forms of oppression.



    Group requirements:

    Members must...

    1) Strive at all times to maintain high standards in discussions, debates and arguments.

    2) Disapprove of insults and slander, as they reflect poorly on us all. When you loose your head, you loose your reason.

    3) Understand the difference between criticism and personal attacks. Attacking others puts them on the defensive, while proving others wrong on a factual reasoned basis, is productive.

    4) Are proponents of equal standards for everyone, no favoritism or sectarian values.

    5) Maintain critical thinking, and always challenge fallacies in thought and writing; whether they agree with a position politically or not.

    6) Stand up for our ethics, including the rights of others, popular or not.

    7) Apologize when they have treated others disrespectfully or failed them through their own fault.

    8) Do not hold personal vendettas. Let it go and live your lives.

    9) Encourage others to be kind and thoughtful in their interactions.



    As a group, we work to improve the conditions of communication and encourage empathy. We have worked hard to make RevLeft and many other environments better and more productive places and we will continue to do so.

  • Marxist-Leninists

    Marxism-Leninism is the theory and practice of the Communists, who uphold the works of Marx, Engels and Lenin in the struggle for proletarian revolution, the construction of socialism, and the triumph of communism on a world scale. It is the scientific ideology of the working-class and its vanguard which accomplish these aims.

    Marxism-Leninism bases itself on historical and dialectical materialism, taking into account the objective material conditions existent in each country and region. It supports just struggles against imperialism and neo-colonialism whose victories are guaranteed through the leading role of the working-class in said struggles. It supports internationalism as the guiding basis of the foreign policy of the socialist state and in the approach to inter-imperialist conflicts. Marxist-Leninists fight for both democratic and socialist demands and, where necessary in the world, carry out any bourgeois-democratic tasks in tandem with the uninterrupted move over into the socialist revolution.

    The struggles waged by Marx, Engels and Lenin against all forms of revisionism, opportunism and reformism constituted both the defense of scientific socialism and its creative development, opposing both "left" and right-wing deviations.

    The construction of socialism in the Soviet Union and likeminded countries provided a superior alternative to the capitalist system. The treacherous policies pursued by the restorers of capitalism constituted a heavy setback for the world working-class movement, but they could not reverse the nature of capitalism and the inevitability of class struggles for socialism under it.

    Marxism-Leninism remains the ideology of the working-class by virtue of its scientific content and objective merits in the epoch of imperialism and the decay of capitalism.

  • Orthodox Trotskyism

    Orthodox Trotskyism, so called by both adherents and detractors, is a political current within the broader Trotskyist movement that bases itself on the work of Leon Trotsky and his associates, such as James P. Cannon, who advanced Marxist theory in the direction indicated by Trotsky's work, in opposition to the revisionist theories of Pablo, Shachtman, Cliff and others. Orthodox Trotskyists emphasise the analysis, first outlined by Trotsky, of the Soviet Union as a degenerated workers' state, of the Stalinist bureaucracy as a contradictory stratum, and of the present epoch of the class struggle as being characterised by a deep crisis of leadership that can only be resolved by forging, on a firm basis, a Fourth International of revolutionary Bolsheviks-Leninists. This group is for adherents to the orthodox Trotskyist line, and every comrade who is interested in orthodox Trotskyist theory.

  • Romantic Sound

    For all those who's passion finds an outlet in music with themes about love and romance. Countless genres around the world from oldies and 70's ballads in the west to C-ambient and soothing J-pop ballads in the east. Romantic tones find themselves being a universal language. We don't care if this music makes us seem soft or weak, the mood it puts us in is powerful.

  • Debunking leftists.

    As the tendency name suggests, this group is for interested leftists to come together, dispell and find quick refutations of common myths surrounding economics, discrimination, Communism itself and other subjects that commonly appear in the discourse of modern politics.

    If you get pissed off whenever you hear a comparison between Marx, Lenin Pol-Pot and Hitler, If you tremble uncontrollably at the words 'a way between extreme Marxism and Capitalism' or 'Good on paper but bad in practice', If you hate having to put up the constant conservative vomits who continuously explain to you how deregulation would increase competition and therefore worker's luxury of living, then this is the group for you!

  • International Marxist Tendency

    For supporters of the IMT, who understand that when the workers move, it will not be through "revolutionary" parties of 2 men and their dog, but through their traditional mass organizations.

    The same organizations that have been bureaucratized, hijacked, and turned against their members will be flooded by the awakened working class. Workers will flush the rats out of their unions and labour parties, and take them on the road of struggle against capitalism.

    When that happens, we must be there to show a revolutionary way out.

  • Wobblies

    For any members and supporters of Industrial Workers of the World.

    Founded in 1905, the IWW is open to all workers. Only bosses are not allowed to join. If you are currently unemployed, you can still join. You have a legal right to join a union and your membership is confidential.

    We are a volunteer-driven union, and this means we, not union bosses or bureaucrats, run the union. The IWW is not controlled by or affiliated with any political party or political movement. No money goes to politicians. Membership dues are used to maintain the union and assist organising campaigns. As a result, monthly dues are low.

    The IWW contends that all workers should be united as a class and that the wage system should be abolished. This can only be achieved through direct action, such as strikes and pickets.
