Preliminary Statement of the NCP(LC) Regarding The Split With The NCP(OC)

This an official statement of the New Communist Party (Liaison Committee). We will publish more statements in the coming days.

On February 17th, our faction resigned its membership in the New Communist Party (Organizing Committee).

They were not expelled, contrary to what the purposeful obscurity of the “Self Criticism and Summation” seems to imply. Continue reading
