Announcement: Fusion between the ALS and the RCIT


Adopted by the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT) and the Agrupación de Lucha Socialista (ALS), 8 July 2016, and


After 9 months of discussions and collaboration, both the ALS and RCIT positively view this process, and have therefore concluded that the basis has been achieved to fuse our two organizations, effective immediately, with the ALS becoming the Mexican section of the RCIT. The joint statements issued by the ALS and RCIT for May Day 2016 and on the situation in Syria, together with the RCIT-Manifesto, constitute the programmatic basis for this fusion.


Given the importance of the revolutionary process in Mexico, along with the concomitant ongoing reactionary offensive throughout Latin America as a whole, with all the massive class struggles that the latter will unavoidably entail, the RCIT and ALS – as well as the RCIT’s militants in Brazil and Venezuela – announce our intention to intensify our efforts to intervene in the class struggle and to fight for a revolutionary program. Lucha Socialista (the paper of ALS), Centelha Vermelha (the paper of the CCR) and Comunismo Revolucionario and O Comunismo Revolucionário (respectively the Spanish the Portuguese language journal of the RCIT) will play a crucial role in this undertaking.


We call upon revolutionaries in Mexico and throughout Latin American to join us in our struggle to rebuild a revolutionary World Party – an international party determined to fight for socialist revolution!
