The Movement for the Reorganization of the Communist Party of Greece 1918–55 (Greek: Κίνηση για την Ανασύνταξη του ΚΚΕ 1918–55), is a minor Greek political party. It is better known as Anasintaxi (Reorganization).

Anasintaxi's header has the hammer & sickle symbol in the center, the phrase "Workers of all countries unite" on the top, "in the road of Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism" under the title and it's followed by a small section containing the heads of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin on the left and of Nikos Zachariadis on the right.

Anasintaxi was established in 1996. It is a Marxist-Leninist organization which struggles for the union of all Greek communists in one Marxist-Leninist-Stalinist party. It occurred from the union of small Marxist-Leninist groups such as Movement for a United Communist Party of Greece and Post-Soviet Epoch mainly consisted of exiled Greek communists from the former Soviet Union and old EAM-ELAS soldiers and officers.

The members of Anasintaxi claim that today's KKE has no relation with the party before its destalinization in the period 1955–1956, and that the new party's leaders betrayed Nikolaos Zachariadis, the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) until 1955.[4] In order to make distinction between the old party and the new party that arose after 1955, they refer to today's KKE as "K"KE or "K"KE('56), adding scare quotes around the first K, which corresponds to the word communist.

Anasintaxi is published biweekly. On the first page of this issue the reader can see a photo of J.V. Stalin

In contradiction with other anti-revisionist organisations, Anasintaxi uses regularly the term Stalinism. The movement criticized Ludo Martens as a revisionist and defender of Mikhail Gorbachev, and his book Another View of Stalin as a fundamentally anti-Stalin book.[5][6]

The organization publishes a biweekly four-page newspaper called Anasintaxi.

Anasintaxi is an active participant in the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (Unity & Struggle).

It hasn't participated in any elections.
