ⓘ American Party of Labor

The American Party of Labor is an American anti-revisionist Marxist–Leninist party founded in 2008, which follows the pro-Albanian tradition.


1. History

The American Party of Labor had its origin in the activities of the American communist Jack Shulman, former secretary of Communist Party USA leader William Z. Foster, and the British Marxist–Leninist Bill Bland. Members of the American Party of Labor had previously been active in Alliance Marxist–Leninist and International Struggle Marxist–Leninist, two organizations founded by Shulman and Bland. The present day APL sees itself as upholding and continuing the work of Shulman and Bland. The APL maintains friendly relations with a number of foreign communist parties in the International Conference of Marxist–Leninist Parties and Organizations. In November 2018, the XXIVth Plenary of the International Conference of Marxist–Leninist Parties and Organizations granted the APL Observer status in that organization.
