It's true that Peter Urban and two others attempted to resign, but 
their resignation was written in terms of divorcing the IRSM's North 
American section (the IRSCNA) from the movement as a whole -- with 
two thirds of the IRSCNA's then leadership (including myself) opposed 
to such a move and no vote of the membership called.  The IRSP had no 
choice but to refuse the resignation as written and instead expelled 
the three individuals.

We could argue the semantics until the cows come home, but the fact 
remains that there was no split in the IRSP as claimed by another poster.
