Transcript 8 NEW LEADER (OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE INDEPENDENT LABOR PARTY) LONDON, ENGLAND Trotsky and the Soviet Trial Demand for Investigation by the Working Class It is impossible without further investigation to accept as authentic much of the evidence given at the Moscow Trial against Trotsky. In a desperate effort to win the commendation of Soviet authorities and to snatch at a faint hope of reprieve, the prisoners obviously sought to serve one of the chief purposes of the trial by mounting up charges against the ex-leader of the Red Army. Few will believe, for example, that Trotsky acted in conjunction with the Nazi Secret Service of Germany. It is significant that the two prisoners who acknowledged themselves to be Trotskyists were the only two who did not voice repentance. One of them cried: "Long live the Leninist Party" even as the death sentence was pronounced. Both these prisoners, whilst admitting that Trotsky had encouraged opposition to the Stalin policy within the Russian Communist Party, denied that he had ever done anything to encourage terrorism or a conspiracy against the life of Stalin or the Soviet leaders. An impartial observer will naturally tend to believe the prisoners who maintained their attitude at the trial rather than those who denied their convictions. Trotsky's record in the Revolutionary Movement demands that the matter should not be left where it is. He has asked for the appointment of a Commission of Investigation by the Norwegian Labor Government into the charges brought against him in Norway by the Fascists and the Communists. We think it is the duty of the International Working-class Movement to appoint a Commission of Investigation. It should visit Trotsky in Norway, and also ask permission to visit Moscow and examine the evidence given in the trial. It should also obtain evidence from Trotskyist refugees from Soviet Russia. 22
