In December 1980, Moreno's current unified with the Organising Committee for the Reconstruction of the Fourth International (OCRFI) directed by Pierre Lambert. The Bolshevik Faction had withdrawn from the Mandelist Unified Secretariat for the support of these (and the US SWP) for the repression and expulsion of the Simon Bolívar Brigade in August 1979. The unification was based on principled agreements on the Nicaraguan revolution and an extensive program. In May 1981 a popular front led by the Socialist and Communist Parties wins the elections. The OCI, the OCRFI’s party in France, capitulates and gives its support to the Popular Front led by François Mitterrand. This document polemises with the revisionist and opportunist positions of the OCI’s "theory of progressive camps".
