When he returned to Spain, Nin was instrumental in forming the Left Communists of Spain (ICE) the Bolshevik Leninist group affiliated to the International Left Opposition (ILO).

Nin had a number of disagreements with Trotsky in this period, specifically when Trotsky advised the ICE leader that entry into the Spanish Socialist Youth would augment the forces at their disposal. Nin disagreed and sought to forge a united party with the Workers and Peasants Bloc (BOC), a group coming out of the Communist movement but seen as being on its right wing.
