The present period has been marked by two important developments. The first is the rapid decline and general weakening position of U.S. imperialism in the world. The second is the growing strength of the worldwide struggle for socialism, national liberation and progress.

Here in the U.S., where the workers’ struggles are mounting and where a growing anti-imperialist united front is emerging, it is important to take note of the rapid growth of the communist movement as well.

This month we are happy to announce that the work of the October League (M-L) is expanding to several new areas of the country. This expansion is evidence of the great enthusiasm which the people have for revolution and for Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought.

In Chicago, the October League has reached organizational unity with the Red Star League (RSL) and the Red Worker’s League (RWL), two groups of communists which have been doing organizing work in Chicago area factories.

In New York-New Jersey area, the October League has united with the Red Flag League (RFL) to form the main base of the organization’s work in the area.

In the Baltimore-Washington area, the October League and the Communist Worker’s League have united, with the main focus of their work, again, on the large factories in that area.

We hope to be able to announce even greater success in building communist unity in the next few months. Through unity, our efforts can be more fruitful, we can all advance together.

The day when the communists in the U.S. can unite into one Communist Party, instead of in many small, separate, local circles is rapidly approaching.
