RESOLUTION OF THE FIFTH ECCI PLENUM

ON THE DISCUSSION IN THE RUSSIAN COMMUNIST PARTY


April 1925 Inprekorr, v, 77 [8o], p. 1033 [1085], 11 May 1925

 

[EXTRACTS]



The enlarged plenum of the ECCI observes that comrade Trotsky's behaviour, which has provoked a new discussion within the RCP, represents an attempt to

revise Leninism and to change the leadership in the RCP.

The enlarged plenum observes that this behaviour is supported by all the forces hostile to bolshevism. Within the CI it is supported by the right-wing elements in the parties, that is, by those whose tactics have been repeatedly condemned by the international congresses as semi-socialist. Outside the CI it is supported by various people expelled from the communist ranks (Levi, Rosmer, Monatte, Balabanova, Hoglund, etc.).

Finally, the social-democratic and bourgeois press has also tried to exploit this behaviour.

It is thus objectively not merely an attempt to disorganize the ranks of the RCP; it has also done the greatest damage to the entire CI.

The enlarged plenum of the ECCI declares that it fully and completely approves the resolution of the plenum of the CC of the RCP.
