Which held its congress "in a telephone booth."  Among those who  
opposed its line, and so earned ringing  denunciations from Lenin and  
Zinoviev, were Luxemburg and Trotsky.  But come the [March]  
Revolution, lo and behold, the Zimmerwald Left slogan "turn the  
imperialist war into a civil war" disappeared without a trace	, as  
Lenin unapologetically embraced the "Trotskyite" slogan of "All Power  
to the Soviets of Workers', Peasants'. and Soldiers' Deputies."
