Organisation of Marxists–Leninists of Greece

The Organisation of Marxist–Leninists of Greece (Greek: Οργάνωση Μαρξιστών Λενινιστών Ελλάδας), known by its Greek acronym OMLE (ΟΜΛΕ), was the original Greek anti-revisionist movement, which split from the Communist Party of Greece in 1964, opposing Soviet revisionism.

OMLE emerged from the merger of exiled Greek communist in the former USSR and the other Eastern bloc countries with a Greek communist group which was publishing the magazine Anagenisi (Greek: Αναγέννηση, 'Renaissance').

After Mao Zedong's death, in 1976, OMLE came into a major crisis and split in two major parties: Communist Party of Greece (Marxist-Leninist) and the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Greece, the latter party following the Three Worlds Theory.
