OF THE INFORMATION CONFERENCE OF THE ECCI
ON THE WORK OF INFORMATION DEPARTMENTS
6 April 1925 Inprekorr, v, 69, p. 934, 27 April 1925
The information conference notes that detailed information about the work of the sections, about the economic and political situation in the different countries, and about the enemy is essential to the successful work of the Executive and its sections.
The conference notes further that the work of the information department of the ECCI, still in its early stages, has been satisfactory, but emphasizes the urgent need to expand that work both in the ECCI apparatus and in the individual sections.
It therefore proposes:
That the central committee of every section appoint an information officer, preferably a member of the central committee, to maintain regular contact with the information department of the ECCI and provide it with material.
Further, those parties which are in a position to do so should set up special information departments as part of the central apparatus. These departments should create an information network from the factory cell up to the centre, and should be adapted to the special circumstances of each section. The information department of the ECCI should coordinate and centralize their work by suggestions, advice, and proposals for action.
The information department of the ECCI shall expand its activities by issuing monthly bulletins on the world situation, the work of the ECCI, and the activities of the sections, for the central committees of all the sections.
A special section of the ECCI information department shall be set up to fight social-democracy. Its job will be to collect, in close co-operation with the sections, all material exposing the treacherous role of social-democracy, and, in collaboration with the agitprop department of the ECCI, to work up this material for the use of the entire CI.
These new tasks of the information department and the work it has done hitherto require the utmost attention and support from all sections of the CI.
