Ideology Marxism-Leninism

The Organization of Saudi Communists (Arabic: منظمة الشيوعيين السعوديين‎‎) was a political party in Saudi Arabia. The OSC was formed in Beirut by communists involved in the Arab National Liberation Movement; a coalition of Saudi opposition groups, including Talal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. The OSC was formed so that Saudi Communists could retain a degree of autonomy whilst still being involved with the larger Movement.[1] Abdulaziz as-Sunaid was one of the founders of the organization.[2] The group was short lived, however, with most Saudi Communists remaining under the banner of the National Liberation Front, which later morphed into the Communist Party in Saudi Arabia.[1]
