Transcript the first time, and therefore we could not give it a final, programmatic form. The experience gained after the Second Congress proved to us that our resolution as to the role of the young communist movement was right. This is why we can give place to the problem in our program at the Third Congress. " It is self evident that this is necessary. We need some unified basis for our practical activity, some general formulation of our various fields of work, in order to understand these various fields and not forget our general purpose in the daily tasks. " The second new question is that of the colonial and semi- colonial countries, which is not touched upon in the Berlin program. The necessity of dealing with this question is clear. In 1919 we were an European organization; today we have grown to a world organization. This development of the Young Communist International must find an echo in our program. Unlike the social democratic international of youth, we must not disregard the colonial and semi-colonial peoples who number more than half the population of the earth. " The third new question in our program is that of the possibilities arising out of the proletarian revolution.

That was in 1919 when the Russian League had had only two years of experience in work under a proletarian dictatorship, and therefore there could be no question of giving place to this problem in our program. " Today we have not progressed so far that we can formulate an international plan for the activity of the young communist organizations ofter the capture of power. This we can do, however; we can trace, in the program, the general possibilities of development after the conquest of power; the characteristic features of the new situation, and the tasks which they include. These then are the new points which we can put in our program, thanks to three years of practical experience of the Y.C.L " Besides these new points, there are number of questions which had already been dealt with in the old program, but which require more thorough treatment. Among these comes first of all the political foreword. This introduction remains, in general, tne same; but we have added something new to it. Much has happened since 1919, and many new points of view have appeared in the Com- 10
