Does anybody think that this will go anywhere?

Trotskyism in Argentina has a terrible record. The level of support 
manifested here is very good as an indication that people are ready to 
fight but I have seen too much squandering of opportunities over the 
past 40 years to expect much more. It is not just the Trotskyists, it is 
the autonomists and the anarchists as well. Sad, really.
