Transcript The development of the Soviet Union from a party dictatorship to the dictatorship of a Fiihrer, concealed in democratic forms, is not a Communist matter alone but concerns the whole socialist movement. The liquidation of Bolshevism and Stalin's forcibly imposed new tack, whose end and consequences are not in sight, will have the strongest influence on the whole European socialist movement. VOLKSRECHT ZURICH, It is necessary in the interests of the struggle against fascist tyranny and its methods, in the interests of the preservation of the honor of European democracy and the socialist movement of Europe, sharply to divorce ourselves from the methods of Stalin and to keep our banner clean of any stain of opportunism. The more unworthy and contemptible the behavior of a certain kind of slavish soul is on this question, the more pressing becomes our task to characterize the shocking spectacle of the Moscow trials for what it is, and to describe it as it appears to us and to all other honor and truth loving socialists. ARBEITERZEITUNG BASEL, We are ardent advocates of the unity of the working class. This unity of action, however, must rest on definite presuppositions. We refuse such unity with any party which approves without a word of criticism the Moscow sentences of blood and their execution, and calls for more actions of a similar nature. Either the Communist Party dissociates itself from the murders of Zinoviev and his companions and therewith wins the right to protest against the murders and tortures of fascism and to further cooperation with the socialist and labor movement—or it approves, as before, the Moscow outrages and cuts a decisive line between us. Either—or! There is no third alternative. The Moscow sentences and their execution are a horrible catastrophe for the working class of all tendencies and a criminal blow against the longed-for ideological and organizational unity of the working class. 64
