Transcript upon us from behind, in every one of these spheres he provides the reaction with splendid weapons: Fascism is always able to contrast our demands with what is happening in the Soviet Union. Hence our struggle on behalf of the political prisoners in the Fascist countries is only possible if we openly and sharply oppose offenses against Justice in the Soviet Union as well. From this mournful necessity the difficulties of co-operation with Communist auxiliary organizations arise. Such organizations may not dare to offer even the slightest objection to the judicial atrocities in the Soviet Union. These Communist auxiliary organizations could of course adopt the attitude of a pure struggle for power: force against force, injustice against injustice. But they do not do this. They appeal to the sense of justice of European public opinion, and to the feelings of humanity of civilized people. Thus the "Red Aid" and all the institutions created by it become "double-dealing" organizations which suffer one failure after another. During this summer the facts of this double-dealing have appeared with positively dramatic force. On June 21st, 1936, a "Conference for the Right of Asylum," initiated by the Communists, following a really brilliant idea, adopted in Paris (see Rundschau, No. 29, p. 1176) a well-considered draft of a law for political fugitives which contained the following two paragraphs: Article 4: The political refugee shall be admitted to the country in which he seeks asylum, and may not be expelled therefrom. Article 5: Should the authorities of a country in which the political refugee has resided demand his extradition, satisfaction can only be given them whatever the official reasons for the demand, if it is judicially established in an irrefutable manner, after hearing a representative of the co-ordinating body, comprising the representatives of the refugees and the national organizations concerning themselves with refugees, that the demand is neither directly nor indirectly motivated by the political activity of the refugee." Two months after the Conference in Paris formulated these demands, namely, on August 30th, Stalin deals the right of asylum a hammer-blow by demanding of the Norwegian Government the withdrawal of the right of asylum from Trotsky! On July 5th, 1936, a "European Amnesty Conference for the anti- Fascist prisoners in Germany" met in Brussels on the initiative of the Communists and, as reported in the Communist International Press Correspondence (No. 33, p. 889), unanimously "voted a Manifesto for a complete amnesty for the political prisoners of the Third Reich, and drew up a judicial petition as a basis of the demand for amnesty." Six weeks later, on August 24th, the principle proclaimed by the Soviet Government that "appeals against sentences imposed, and petitions for pardon, will not be considered," is again applied in Moscow. 28
