THE SPANISH REVOLUTION, THE BEGINING OF A NEW ERA IN THE INTERNATIONAL WORKERS' MOVEMENT.
THE INTERNATIONALISTS WHO ARE FIGHTING ON OUR FRONT WILL BE THE FORGERS OF THE INSTRUMENT OF THE WORLD REVOLUTION.
A NEW STEP TOWARDS THE UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF THE WORLD.
The imperialist war of 1914-1918 and the triumph of the Revolution in Russia induced an international revolutionary movement which was on the point of dealing the final blow to the capitalist regime throughout a series of countries.

From an objective point of view, the conditions of revolutionary maturity exist. The only progressive issue offered to Humanity is that of the socialist revolution. Nevertheless, what has triumphed in a series of countries during the course of the last years is not the revolution, but the counter-revolution. Why?

We have repeatedly said that the proletarian revolution could not triumph without the existence of a strong revolutionary party in a given country. In an international sense the revolution cannot triumph without a revolutionary International. This brings us to a conclusion which we must proclaim with all our energy: the IInd. as well as the IIIrd. Internationals have failed completely. They have
