Transcript THE COMMUNIST INTERNATIONAL 131 information tells us that the Kuomintang experience finds its supporters in Italy where they are endeavoring to force on our Party the monstrous slogan of a "Republican Assembly on the Basis (?) of Workers' and Peasants' Committees".

(Vol. 6, page 113. Our emphasis). In 1906 Lenin wrote: "The last advice is, proletarians and semi-proletarians of town and country, organize separately. Do
