>(mopeul)- and it seems to be referencing some kind of a movement, perhaps a workers' movement?

It is most likely "MOPR" -- the Russian acronym
for Mezhdunarodnaya organizatsiya pomoshchi [bortsam] revolyutsii, usually referred to as "Red Aid" or "International Red Aid," and literarlly "International Organization for the Aid of Fighters for Revolution" or something like that. One website I found says it was "founded in 1922 out of a successful international campaign to aid the victims of white terror in Poland."
