Material from U.S.

At this time there is no genuine Marxist-Leninist party in the United States. Any organization that seeks to be the nucleus for such a party must prove itself both by its line scientifically summed up in its program and by its practice. In particular its practice must be demonstrated by its ability to win over a substantial section of the advanced workers in at least a few major U.S. cities. We include material from some organizations that seek to build such a Marxist-Leninist party, as well as links to others.

We have added a section of archival material, consisting of material from the 1920s to the 1970s that is still of relevance today. This includes material that had been organized in other sections earlier.
