Very little of what I've read on this list leads me to believe that any of 
us, who have thus far put in our two centavos, could accurately report on the 
organizational form which are most needed in Barquisimeto at the moment. As much 
as I respect Louis' disdain for sectarianism, given what seems to be the JSRs 
commitment to work within the Bolivarian movement, I would withhold any long 
distance condemnations. More importantly, we don't know how these comrades 
will do their revolutionary work. To the extent that they don't put their 
organizational interests ahead of those of the movement - or more accurately ahead of 
the interests of the workers and peasants of Venezuela - our initial impulse 
should be to fraternally cheer the site of more openly organizing Marxists and 
revolutionaries. Our second impulse should be to seek more information…
