Transcript youth —' A Minimum Wage, The Six Hour Day, Collective Indentures, The Abolition of Piece Work, The Protection of Apprentices, Two Year Apprenticeships etc., were clearly recognized as demands arising out of the struggle and leading to still new struggles against a vicious capitalist offensive, struggles which must culminate in the Proletarian Dictatorship. A clear program for the struggle against bourgeois militarism and Reaction was adopted. Not the "General Strike" slogan of social democrats and pacifists, but the Leninist slogan, "Prepare Now to Transform the Imperialist War into a Civil War of the Working Class Against the International Bourgeoisie". Concrete instructions were issued to this end — the formation of an illegal nuclei organization inside the army and navy, the struggle for the immediate cultural, economic and political demands of the soldiers and sailors etc. The proposal of the Y. C. I. to the Socialist Internationals of Youth for a joint week of international action against militarism and the danger of war was naturally rejected by the socialists who now stand on the side of the fascists against the communists and against* the demands of the working class. And Hamburg, where the delegation of the Y. C. I. was refused admission, marked the final capitulation of Social Democracy to the Bourgeoisie and to the Reaction. The leagues attacked the tasks set to them with energy and determination and already the Fourth Bureau Session was able to record considerable progress by June 1923 and to give directions for the further development of the work. With the end of 1923, the attacks of the reaction reached their height, and in Bulgaria in September and in Germany in October, the latter due to socialdemocratic treachery, the workers were forced to retreat. During the course of these struggles opportunistic divergencies made themselves apparent, even within the ranks of the Communist International itself. The application of the United Front Tactic was fraught with dangers which had to be resolutely fought, and the Young Communist Leagues took a foremost place in this struggle. The declaration of Zinoviev that the Y. C. I. was the "right hand" of the Communist International, is a tribute to the steadfastness of the Leagues during a difficult period.
