I know I have heard that there are still some tiny Bordigist groups in existence somewhere in Europe, but I have never heard or read anything about them beyond that. So I was curious whether anyone here has any contact with them, or knows anything about them? Do any of them have websites?

In terms of websites:

(EDIT: Leo already mentioned the adresses of the first three I was going to post)

http://www.quinterna.org/lingue/english/0_english.htm

I think Android has contact with a member of the last mentioned one. Il Partito Comunista and Il Comunista both have online contact details. I think that the former will reply to any questions you field them because I sent them a couple of questions via e-mail myself and they (Or he, if the rumours about the actual numbers of their British section are to be believed) responded (Though it did take a while).

Cool, thanks for the responses, guys. I might drop them an email as I have a few questions. Before any of that, though, I gotta ask... do they actually exist in any negligibly meaningful way outside of the internet? Because if not, it seems a sort of pointless endeavor.

Does any communist group exist in a meaningful way outside of the internet?

How would you define meanigful in this context?

I met a few people from 'Programma' at a meeting of a workers' group in Bolonga last year.

I wanted to contact ICP, but when I saw that they refuse to use email and that they want you to write them letter I kind of gave up. That's little bit too strange to me...

"Negligibly meaningful" was the phrase, and yes.

Good to know, thanks.

Coincidentally (or perhaps not}, someone from the third group that Leo linked to is now posting on the forum here.

They refuse to use email...? :? What is their reasoning...?

I more asked the question to find out what you thought constituted a meaningful existence outside of the internet so as to better be able to assist you, sorry if I sounded hostile.
