The Maoist Internationalist Movement (MIM) was a clandestine revolutionary communist organization based primarily in the United States. Contrary to most Maoist groups in the West, the MIM was a product of elements of the American New Left student movement who formed the New Communist movement.
All of MIM’s publications were anonymously written; authors do not sign their names to articles. Instead, writers used the moniker MC[X] (MIM Comrade X), where X is a number. This was reputedly to prevent their members and supporters from being known by the state and also to keep the focus on theoretical line and arguments rather than people and personal relationships.
This magazine once belonged to the Red Resistance Front’s archive (RVF). The Red Resistance Front existed from 1977 to 1988. Former members of the Red Youth (a communist group) and its affiliated Red Aid were active in the organisation. The RVF was an aid organization for the “armed resistance” in Western Europe, together with a large number of pamphlets mainly protesting against the detention situation of imprisoned members of the German Red Army Faction (RAF)
The RVF also conducted and coordinated actions against the European Parliament elections, which were held for the first time in 1979. The group saw it as part of a political structure that would give Germany and the United States too much power in Europe.
