The Marxist-Lenninst Party, USA was an anti-revisionist communist group founded in 1967 out of the Cleveland Draft Resistance Union. Anti-revisionist groups were created as a counter to many existing groups as a return to “orthodox Marxism-Leninism.” The MPL would probably most closely be representative of a Maoist group in the US. The group dissolved in 1993 without ever having a huge following. Typical of many left wing groups the MPL was affiliated with many groups and also had many splinter groups including, Communist Voice Organization, U.S. Marxist-Leninist Organization, and the American Communist Workers’ Movement (Marxist-Leninist). The group dissolved in 1993.
