The International League of Peoples' Struggle (ILPS) is an international organization that seeks to coordinate anti-imperialist and democratic movements around the world.[1]

History[edit]

The International League of Peoples' Struggle was established on May 2001 at Zutphen in the Netherlands, on the occasion of its First International Assembly, which drew participation from the representatives of mass organizations from 40 counties such as Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Benin, Brazil, Burma, Canada, Congo, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, England, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Niger, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Scotland, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and the United States.[2][3]

Jose Maria Sison, founder of the Communist Party of the Philippines, was one of the former chairpersons of the organization.[4]

The International League of Peoples' Struggle had six International Assemblies since its establishment. The last one was held on 23-26 June 2019 in Hong Kong.[5]
