Transcript But I do not intend to follow Georgi Dimitrov's line. The time is too serious for wordy warfare, for allowing anger to vent itself in insults. I will attempt in a sober manner to make intelligible the problem with which we are faced, a problem whose importance will not be underrated by anybody who is not pursuing an ostrich policy in relation to the severe setback in the International Labor Movement which has been a consequence of the Moscow Trial. I address these statements to Georgi Dimitrov because in his case certain conditions are present which permit me to hope that he is more susceptible to my way of thinking than other rulers in Moscow. Dimitrov, like myself, has had personal experience of a trial which was a matter of life and death. At the Reichstag Fire Trial it was for him a matter of course, just as it was for me when I stood before the Special Tribunal, to put forward his own convictions aggressively and without concession, to the end. And he therefore has the same feeling as I have with regard to the pitiableness of the human species which revealed itself in such a revolting manner in the defendants at the Moscow trial. I therefore have some hope that Dimitrov may understand the real kernel of the problem beyond the mass of untenable accusations which he produces in the chorus of the Moscow Government press, even though he may not dare to admit this openly, in view of the psychosis which at present prevails in Moscow. But I am not concerned with today—the damage is done—but with creating the conditions for the future. Towards this, everybody can make a contribution who understands what is the real matter at issue. INTERNATIONAL LABOR'S PROTEST The telegram which we sent from Paris on August 21st was as follows: "To the President of the Council of People's Commissars in Moscow! "At the time when world working class is unitedly backing the Spanish workers in the defence of their democratic republic, we regret the opening in Moscow of a great political trial. "Although the accused Zinoviev and his associates have always been bitter enemies of the Labor and Socialist International and the International Federation of Trade Unions, we nevertheless demand that all legal guarantees shall be given and that the accused shall be allowed to have defending Counsel who are absolutely independent of the government. And that no death sentence shall be promulgated and in any case that no procedure excluding the right of appeal shall be applied. De Brouckere, President, Adler, Secretary, of the Labor and Socialist International. Citrine, President, Schevenels, Secretary, of the International Federation of Trade Unions." We have reproduced the text of our telegram here, as it is sufficient to read it for the whole of the fantastic accusation that its signatories
