It seems to have quietly shriveled away over the last few years. For a long time, it has been made up of parties from several countries, ranging from small dirt poor third world countries, such as Bangladesh and advanced countries, such as New Zealand. The largest movement was originally the Communist Party of Peru (Shining Path). After the capture of its leaders in 1992, the main party was the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). Now there seems to be a lot of grumbling from the other active parties, such as the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and the US Revolutionary Communist Party about the tactics of the Nepal Maoists.
There has been for some time accusations that RIM was actually run by the US RCP and its leader Bob Avakian. There seems to be grumbling from most of the other RIM parties that Avakian is trying to pass himself off as the next great Maoist thinker, not only in the US, but every where else.
If RIM disintegrates, what will take its place?
So here is the latest exchange from:
Can you please send us any articles on the crises of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement? Was there a 2 line struggle? If so what was the result? What is the crises with the A World to Win magazine? We have no news on this and all is silent.
Please Comrades when ready send to us the first issue of the Maoist road in all languages including english as pdf and word attachments.

Maoist Communist of Italy (PCm Italy)
With the comrades of the Maoist Communist Party of France,after the Paris Meeting 30-31 january, on our proposition before, during and after the meeting we have realized the number zero of a new international review MAOIST ROAD (la via maoista, la vie maoiste, el sendero maoista) for debate on the international communist mouvement, and within this, in the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM). It needs this review after the collapse of "a world to win" and crisis of in the RIM, but it is not a new review in the space of RIM. It is addressed in all communist marxist-leninist- maoist movement and it is opean to debate with parties and organisations that want to debate and work with marxist-leninist- maoist parties and organisations in class struggles and international- internationalist campaigns. The number 0 is dedicated at Paris Meeting 30-31 january as example of this approach: the Revolutionary Communist Party of Canada, the Maoist Communist party of Turkey and North Kurdistan, the Communist Party of India (Marxist - Leninist)- Naxalbari that have signed a joint declaration in May first are now the potential participants for the Maoist Road, but also english comrades and others want to see if this review can absolve an important task.Good, now it is issued in italian, french and english in this months after in spanish and other languages, then we prepare the number 1 with all parties and organisations on important questions in our movement: Maoism, parties and peoples wars in the world against electoralism, modern fascism in imperialist countries against opportunism and new revisionist line, economic crisis and class struggles against economism and pretty bourgeois revolutionary tendencies. The Nepal question against revisionism and dogmatism leftism, support peoples war in India and not only against war against the people campaign, international proletarian red relief as important tasks for the international communist movement. We await a strong support for this initiative.
