TRICONT was founded in Helsinki in September 1968 as “a group of people studying the problems of the Third World, world capitalism and imperialism“. Its goal was the “active support for liberation movements and their armed struggle“ by distributing information and organizing events. From 1968 onwards the group published a series of xerox-copied booklets. The magazine/journal TRICONT appeared from 1969 until 1973.
