Communist Party USA (Marxist–Leninist)


Communist Party USA (Marxist–Leninist)

The Communist Party USA (Marxist-Leninist) was a small Maoist political party in the United States. It was founded in 1965 by members of the Communist Party USA around Michael Laski who took the side of China in the Sino-Soviet split. The party never grew and was disbanded amid a gunfight after Laski lost most of the group's funds while gambling at Las Vegas.

The group should not be confused with the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist).
