Transcript In its attacks against the working class, capitalism uses not only its economic power, but also its political weapons. In a reactionary tide it attempts to break the resistance of the working class and to destroy its political and economic organizations, and, if necessary for this purpose, it will use the fascist organizations to prepare an armed fight against the workers. In this situation the struggle of resistance can start only from the shops. The German communists therefore have appealed in their papers to the working class: "The organization for defence must start in the shops. Everywhere, especially in the large shops, the workers must gather immediately and form committees to recruit proletarian guards which must be ready to resist the Fascists in an open fight. The various shops must get into touch with each other and by a combination of the proletarian guards under central leadership create organizations which must be ready to take up the struggle." To successfully conduct the resistance of the working class, the whole efforts of all our members will be necessary, and the only form of organization capable of accomplishing this is the combination of the shop nuclei under direct leadership of the Party and League headquarters. Realizing that in the present struggle.a strengthening of the efforts in the shops is necessary, the leaders of the Berlin shop nuclei have decided:—"that every comrade is obliged to accept a function in his shop. If he refuses to do so, he is responsible for it to the Party. The higher officials of the Party (secretaries, editors, speakers, trade union employees) are instructed to participate regularly in the work of a definite shop nucleus".

We must win the young workers in the shops before our opponents are able to tamper with their loyalty to the working class. THE ILLEGAL SIDE OF OUR MOVEMENT In the immediate future it is not impossible that several of our Leagues will meet with the same fate as befell the Italian 28 \.
