No Louis. I have not yet left the list since I can spare still a couple of
days. I will be unsubscribing soon though since it is beyond my will now
and other pressing tasks are occupying my time.
By now even malecki can see that Poder Obrero are not even good liars and
even malecki - maybe with a little help from the archives given his
selective memory - can serve to expose their blatant counter-revolotuinoary
You now that these fleas use a thick brush to spread their manure and that I
would not go into every one of their absurd allegations. In Peru we have a
saying, for an example, one button is sufficient!.
Here is their "button":
>the conflict with Ecuador, instead of advocating a Leninist defeatism
>in both sides and the fraternisation of the workers of Peru and
>Ecuador, the PCP_SL called for the defence of Peru's borders.
Even malecki knows that such is an absurd lie. We had precisely this debate
in this list (the one concerning the position of the Turkish communists
vis-a-vis Cyprus and the Peruvian Communist vis-a-vis the Peru-Ecuador
conflict). Then we had occassion of republishing Committee Sol-Peru's
document "TO OUR BRETHEN THE PROLETARIAT AND PEOPLE OF ECUADOR" - I remeber
that malecki even "took his hat off". Now that he has proof of the lying
character of his "comrades" working for the Fujimori regime, would malecki
accept that he has been very foolish?
I am sure anyone with access to the Marxisn archives can refresh the memory
of the forgetful Trots in this list who have made asses of themselves a
second time round by playing the game of the Fujimori SIN!
