The defunct Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) was an international Communist organization which upheld a version of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism founded in 1984 sought to "struggle for the formation of a Communist International of a new type, based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism". The RIM, as an organization, is defunct today.A World To Win is a defunct theoretical journal inspired by the formation of the RIM (but not an official organ of the organization) "whose pages are open to all those on the same sides of the barricades in the fight against imperialism and reaction"  AWTW continues to maintain an email list.
Of the RIM's one-time participating member organizations, the Maoist Communist Party (Turkey) and the Communist Party of Peru (Shining Path) are currently engaged in armed conflict. The RIM also supported the revolutionary wars led by the Communist Party of the Philippines and by the Communist Party of India (Maoist). However, it is not clear how strong these efforts still are.
Many of the founding organizations are defunct, have changed their names over the years, or have dropped active armed struggle. The Communist Party of Nepal (Masal) left over differences of political line, but a much larger group, the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), is a member. Indian member organisations amalgamated into the Communist Party of India (Maoist), which is not currently a member.
New forces also entered the RIM's fold in the following years, including the Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan.
