International Workers League: 40 years building a world revolutionary leadership

BY IWL-FI International Secretariat

In 2022, we commemorate the 40th anniversary of the International Workers League.Today, four decades later, we continue the daily struggle for the reconstruction of the Fourth International through global class struggle. The barbarism to which capitalism is leading us confirms not only that it is a possible task but also an urgent one.


A brief outline of the history of the IWL-FI

By Alicia Sagra

We have been fighting, since the 40s, a long and difficult battle to build revolutionary parties with mass influence in all the countries and to build an International. We understand our struggle as the continuation of the one initiated by Marx, Engels, Rosa Luxemburg, Karl Liebknecht[1], Lenin[2] and Trotsky[3] to build the First, the Second, the Third and the Fourth Internationals.


Introducing our Special celebrating 40 years of the IWL-FI

By Daniel Sugasti

“The world party is the number one priority of the workers movement because there is a world economy and a world policy to which the national realities are subordinated […] The existence of a world policy is characteristic of capitalism and, since it is a question of overthrowing it, an instrument in accordance with that reality and that task is needed […]”. Nahuel Moreno, 1986.
