Oyggjaframi (marx-leninistar) or OF(m-l)Advancement for the Islands (Marxist-Leninist) – was a communist organization in the Faroe Islands.

In 1968 the Copenhagen-based Faroese association Oyggjaframi had founded a branch in Tórshavn.[1] Whilst the Copenhagen branch continued to function as a broad socialist discussion club, a tendency emerged within the Tórshavn branch calling for the building of a communist party on the basis of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-Tung Thought.[1] At the Oyggjaframi congress in 1972 the organization was split, with the Copenhagen branch continuing to function as Faroese Socialists and the Tórshavn branch constituting OFML.[1][2]

As of 1975, Hermann Oskarsson was chairman of OFML.[3] The 1975 congress of OFML adopted 5 slogans outlining the priorities of the organization;

  • Studies as the central activity
  • Consolidate and expand democratic centralism
  • Strike roots in the working class
  • Lead the popular movement against the EEC
  • Publish a communist workers newspaper[1][2]

OFML published the first issue of Arbeiðið May 1, 1976.[2][4]

Initially OF(m-l) took part in the Nordic cooperation of Marxist-Leninist parties that included Arbeidernes Kommunistparti of Norway, Kommunistiska Förbundet Marxist-Leninisterna of Sweden, Kommunistisk Arbejderparti of Denmark, Marxist-Leninist Groups of Finland, and Einingarsamtök Kommúnista (marx-lenínistar) of Iceland.[3][5] When the Sino-Albanian split occurred, OFML and EIK(ml) followed the People's Republic of Albania.

During its last years, OFML kept close contacts with the pro-Albanian Danish Danmarks Kommunistiske Parti/Marxister-Leninister.
