Of course not. I haven't been an activist since the late 1980s 
when I was president of Tecnica, an organization that sent 
hundreds of volunteers to Nicaragua and the front-line states in 
Africa.

That is not what I questioned. What I questioned is how anarchists 
and non-party radicals took the *first step* in getting the 
movement going.

I have enough of a clue to know that this movement would have not 
come into existence if it had to rely on groups like the ISO, SA 
or your own to take *the first step*.
