Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the proceedings of the discussion of the Communist International's Fourth Congress, held on 20 November 1922, on the tasks of communists in the trade unions. Lozovsky says that the anarchists' stand against the Communist International, the Red International of Labour Unions (RILU), and the Russian Revolution was explained by the overall situation of the international workers' movement. The anarchists and the revolutionary syndicalists were especially fond of stressing the trade unions' neutrality with regard to political parties. Clarke put forward his viewpoints regarding the Amsterdam leaders and the British trade-union movement. Lansing spoke on behalf of the American delegation, regarding Communist tasks in the American trade unions.
