The Internationalist Group was founded in 1996 by cadre that were purged from the International Communist League (ICL), particularly from the Mexican Grupo Espartaquista de México and from the US Spartacist League. The purge was initiated due to differences of opinion on strategy that began emerging with the breakup of the Warsaw Pact. These included differences on the results of the ICL's election strategy in Germany as well as differences over relations with a Brazilian group, the Liga Quarta-Internacionalista do Brasil. The Internationalist Group (IG) began publishing The Internationalist in 1997. In 1998, the Internationalist Group formed the League for the Fourth International in conjunction with the Liga Quarta-Internacionalista do Brasil and the Groupe Internationaliste (formerly the Permanent Revolution Faction) in France.
