I agree, Nestor, it is a pity.  However, the omission, if it can be 
called that, is not at all strange given that I have managed the Spanish 
Section largely alone over the years, at the same time as I worked on 
establishing several other language sections, raised a family, went to 
work, etc.

One does what one can with the resources and time that one has 
available, and these have not been available.

Fortunately, after many years of searching, we recently managed to 
locate a set of Lenin's "Obras Completas", which a supporter has 
purchased.  Plans are being established to launch an "assembly line" 
project to digitize and format the collection.   Any help that anyone 
could provide toward that efforty would of course speed the project 
along and be of immense value to workers the world over.

The Trotsky article (could you be more specific with the title? date?) 
may be available in this collection: 

Un abrazo,
