I'm not sure what experience Joaquin has with WWP in Atlanta, so I
don't know if his critique of the statement is solely a textual
exegesis.
I didn't have much sympathy for the call for a Fifth International,
given the lack of clarity and the inclusion in the list of proposed
members of bourgeois forces.
But I'll judge this statement on its merits, and on the basis of my
recent experience with WWP in person. My experience the last couple
years in being in united fronts that included WWP around Palestine,
immigrant rights, etc., has been a productive one. That's not to say
that WWP does its movement work in every instance the way that my
group (SA) does it.
But it DOES mean that they don't deserve the off-the-cuff hostility
shown here. And it also means they have very clearly differentiated
themselves from PSL, which continues to act in a brazenly sectarian
manner in the antiwar movement.
