Workers World Party (WWP) is a revolutionary Marxist–Leninist party in the United States. It supports AES, including China[1] and Korea.[2]


Future party founders Sam Marcy and Milt Neidenberg left the Socialist Workers Party in 1958 because of its opposition to the Soviet Union and founded the WWP in 1959.[3]


The Workers World Party opposes U.S. interventions around the world and supports the Palestinian people against the Zionist State of Israel.

Starting in August 1962, the Workers World Party began its first demonstration against the Vietnam War. It also supported the independence movements of the Congo, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, and Mozambique.[4]
