 International Workers Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1975, the IWP was joined by four Trotskyists who had previously constituted themselves as the Class Unity Faction within the Workers World Party but had been forced out as a result of their opposition to the WWP leadership's supposed reformism.
In 1988 the New Alliance Party fielded Lenora Fulani for President, organizing a national drive that resulted in her becoming the first woman and the first African American to be on the ballot in all 50 states.
For instance, when the party moved away from street organizing in minority communities during the 1990s, some members who left at that time (or shortly before) accused Newman of arbitrarily imposing new policies that had the effect, in the eyes of the dissidents, of turning the IWP into a personal fundraising machine for Newman.

 Poland: Why we joined CWI
Only by building mass revolutionary parties throughout the world joined together in a revolutionary Workers’ International will it be possible to ensure the victory of the revolution and the creation of a new social order in the interests of working people.
In such parties it is possible to work towards raising the consciousness of the working class — strengthening the influence of revolutionary ideas on the workers’ movement and building the base of a future revolutionary workers’ party.
Today CWI is not just the only international Trotskyist tendency which maintains and implements the principles of Marxism-Leninism, but it is also an energetic, active organisation taking part in the class struggles of the proletariat in more than 40 countries, thereby contributing to the development of the international workers’ movement.

Meanwhile the IWP recruiters answered to a small group termed the "Steering Committee," which consisted of the leading members of Newman's various organizations as well as the NAP's two-time presidential candidate Lenora Fulani and Newman's multiple mistresses.
For instance, most party leaders passively acquiesced when Newman decided in the early 1990s to stop the party's vigorous organizing in the fl community, disband NAP and abolish the National Alliance newspaper in order to concentrate on fundraising projects and efforts to influence middle-class constituencies.
Since 2002, the web site www.ex-iwp.org has provided a forum for former IWP members, both those hostile to the group and those who remember it with mixed feelings (and even a few who are still friendly to the group), to comment openly on their experiences and on current Newmanite political, cultural and fundraising endeavors.

 International Workers Party   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The International Workers Party (IWP) was a radical political organization founded by controversial psychotherapist Fred Newman.
Throughout its lifetime, the IWP attempted to emulate other models of democratic centralist parties in that it had a "Central Committee," a governing body to make the decision-making process represent different positions held within its constituency.
By the mid 1990s, both Newman and Fulani distanced themselves with their work in the IWP and it is believed to be completely disbanded.

Workers could directly elect representatives from their workplaces who would only be paid the average wage of a skilled worker and could be immediately recalled and replaced by the electors.

All four Comcad were expelled from the IWP within one year, however, and began rallying against the Newmanites after learning the IWP had presented damaging political information about James Retherford to the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office.
To change that reality, a party of the proletariat needs a concrete program to link up the struggle to meet everyday needs of human survival, the threat to which is now becoming extremely acute, to the struggle to overthrow the capitalist state and construct socialism-which merge in the process of the struggle for expanded reproduction.
By 1959, when WWP emerged as a party it still had a good empirical approximation of reality, and saw the upswing in struggle that was going to come in the next few years on a world scale, and had the guts to take the safety risks involved in expressing support for this.

 PublicEye.org - Clouds Blur the Rainbow - Part 1
Instead, the ruthless organizing style of the New Alliance Party was so consistently disruptive, that across the country, gay men and lesbians, African Americans, civil libertarians, community organizers and progressive activists denounced the New Alliance Party and its tactics.
The issues Fulani and her political party raised deserved more attention, not only in mainstream political circles, but also within the US progressive movement, where too often the reality fails to match the ideal when it comes to issues of gender, race, class, disabilities, and sexual identity.
At the core of the New Alliance Party was a hierarchical group of organizers who devised a manipulative and totalitarian method of seeking political power.

 International Worker No. 238: The evolution of the Socialist Workers Party
Their leader, Tony Cliff, said that reformist-minded workers agreed with 40 or 50% of what the SWP stands for and the experience of the class struggle should be used to convince them of the rest.
The SWP were not averse to criticising this or that aspect of the Labour Party's programme and leadership and opposed the party's rightward course.
In the last two decades, with the collapse of the Stalinist Communist Party and the absence of a consistent revolutionary opposition due to the degeneration of the old Workers Revolutionary Party, the SWP was able to secure leading union positions at branch level.

 Down with Slander and Hooliganism! - Defend Workers Democracy!
Workers democracy—the commitment to full and free discussion within the labor movement and the resolution of differences through rational argument and political debate—is for Marxists a question of principle.
Other organizations, like the International Socialists, resort to a less blatant form of anti-communism and restrict political opponents to a single speaker during the discussion period at their events.

In numerous small towns surrounding the Gazprom plant, which lies16 kilometers to the northeast of Astrakhan city, hundreds of workers and their families who live in the worker settlements and indigenous communities have over the years fallen victim to rampant industrial pollution, to cancer, lung diseases, and sulfur poisoning.
And now Gazprom, claiming that resettlement of the workers is the local councils’ responsibility, is at the same time fighting to get the officially recognized contamination area reduced from its current radius of 8 kilometers from the plant, to 3 kilometers — which would eliminate the obligation to resettle most of the affected population.

 Newman and Fulani support of gay and minority causes called "nonsense"
As a former member/victim of the NAP (a/k/a the International Workers Party), I have written this letter the hopes of forewarning prospective pawns about the group's 25-year history of economic and political exploitation of gays, lesbians and people of color.
Although most NAP (IWP, etc.) victims are "developed" (brainwashed) without Newman's personal attention, the psycho-terrorism and isolation from friends and family and "love bombing" (cult lingo for seduction), are usually delivered by Newman's closest and most skilled operatives who are just as effective as the "master" himself.
It is my experience that many of those who join the NAP (IWP, etc.), resign or detach themselves from the cult (IWP) at the point when the attacks on their identities (bourgeois ego) have been driven to a point of intensity which either draws them in further, or, thankfully, drives them out.

Backing the government is a coalition of parties and organisations ranging from the governing parties themselves—the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and the Greens—to the conservative opposition, the Free Democratic Party (FDP), business organisations, the trade unions, the church, and broad sections of the media.
Their aim is not to outline a viable social alternative, but rather, in light of the rapid decline of the SPD, to establish a new mechanism to prevent the working class breaking completely with Social Democracy.
