Ex-IWP.org is an informational website about the INTERNATIONAL WORKERS PARTY (IWP) and its various front groups (aka the Tendency, the Organization, All Stars Project, Inc., Castillo Cultural Center, East Side Center, Institute for Short-Term Social Therapy, Committee for a Unified Independent Party (CUIP), Performance of a Lifetime, Otto Rene Cultural Awards, Performing the World, New Alliance Party (NAP), Rainbow Lobby, Ross & Green, Centers for Change, "If ... Then," among others).  The IWP is an insular organization founded and led by a controversial, NYC-based philospher, FRED NEWMAN. Journalists and former members often describe Newman's tendency as a destructive political/therapy cult.
