The "official" Fourth International has taken a well deserved beating
for "criticizing unambiguously" . . . "the execution of three Cuban
citizens and the heavy prison sentences imposed on other citizens who
were expressing their desire to exercise their right of criticism."
Imagine Trotsky, who supported the reinstitution of the death penalty
under the conditions of civil war in Russia and defended not only the
execution of the whole family of the Czar and the crushing of
Kronstadt, but wrote numerous pamphlets and even books defending the
so-called terror of the Russian Revolution, making such a statement.
I take that back. It is not even possible to imagine.
Having made myself clear on this point, the defeat of the draft EU
Constitution and the dynamic role of the LCR in that defeat, will
undoubtedly open up prospects for the LCR.
Here is the Fourth International article on the victory.
