Introduction to Our History

November 1943 saw the birth of the Internationalist Communist Party (PCInt) whilst in December 1983 the International Bureau for the Revolutionary Party (IBRP), the forerunner of our Internationalist Communist Tendency (ICT), was founded. To acknowledge these anniversaries we have updated this introduction to our history. Much of it is based on the two volume collection of documents of the PCint, Settant'anni contro venti e maree (Seventy Years Against Winds and Tides) first published ten years ago. We have added in some paragraphs from other brief histories as well as links to documents already on our website in English. This is intended as an easy chronological reference point for those wanting to understand how our tendency has developed within the working class movement over more than a century.
