The national congress 2013 of Serve the People has decided not to continue our ties to the international organization ICOR.

Many different parties from the whole world was involved the formation process of the International coordination of Revolutionary Parties and Organizations (ICOR). In these discussions before the foundation a number of MLM organizations took part. Few of these, however, signed the foundation declaration of ICOR. Our national congress of 2013, has decided for the league to leave ICOR.

Serve the People have never given high priority to participate in international conferences and organizations. In the phase we are in, it is absolutely necessary to focus the majority of our forces at building communist organization and red power here in Norway. Thus we have never spent much effort in ICOR, but still choose to break to mark an important point of view.

One of the most important parties in the ICOR is an Indian party that has denounced Marxism-Leninism-Maoism (MLM), the Indian Maoist party and the Peoples’ War. Serve the People supports the Indian Maoists, we support people’s war strategy and our political-ideological foundation is MLM. We do not want to coordinate our work with parties that denounce the People’s War in India.

Serve the People also have other important differences with other ICOR member organizations and with the ICOR basis of unity.

We do not want to create any enmity with the ICOR member organizations. We still want to have contact with some of the organizations that are members of ICOR.
