Transcript Already more than ten years ago—ten years—the Trotsky- Zinoviev combination began to resort to open crimes against the Soviet government, crimes punishable by Soviet criminal law. The so-called "New Opposition", headed by Trotsky, Zinoviev and Kamenev, and participated in by Piatakov, Radek, Serebriakov, Muralov, Sokolnikov, Drobnis and Boguslavsky, the defendants in the January trial, took the path of struggle against the Soviet government into the streets. They tried to organize demonstrations and to involve the masses in the fight. And it was not their fault that they failed. The masses were against them. It will be recalled that at that time the Soviet government was meeting with a number of difficulties in the construction of socialism. The Trotsky-Zinoviev bloc attempted to exploit these difficulties in order to deliver a blow at the Soviet government. In 1932, also, the Soviet government was struggling to overcome certain difficulties, and the Trotsky-Zinoviev bloc was on the job again—waiting for difficulties and seizing upon them to fight the Soviet government and the socialist system. State Prosecutor Vyshinsky summed up on the "socialist past" of these criminals in a very convincing way. He said: The question may arise in some minds—how is it that these people who fought for socialism so many years can now be accused of these monstrous crimes? Perhaps these people are accused of something that by the very essence of their whole past socialist revolutionary Bolshevik activity they cannot be accused of? "I answer this question. We accuse these gentlemen of being traitors to socialism. We motivate this accusation not only by what was committed (this is the subject of the accusation) but we say the history of their downfall began long before they organized the so-called 'Parallel Center', this off-shoot of the criminal Trotsky- ist-Zinovievist united bloc. "The organic link is here at hand. The historic link is here at hand. From the platform of 1926, from anti-Soviet street demonstrations, illegal printshops, and the league with White Guard officers which they also accepted then, to destructive work, espionage, terror and betrayal of the fatherland—from 1932 to 1936 is one step. And they took this step." They took this step and became the allies of fascism, plotters for the defeat of the Soviet Union and its dismemberment, 16
