At the end
of June, Emancipación
held its first congress. With this, the publisher of ‘Nuevo
new article almost every
day, has shifted its
ambitions from the Spanish-speaking region to a global scale, from an
organization around basic positions to one that puts forward slogans
and statements to the actual situation. However, this step forward is
not without problems related to the historical origins of this
organization from what is often called the Spanish Communist Left
around Grandizo Munis.
‘Nuevo Curso’ on the communist Lefts that broke with the III. International, and their political heirs
In a concise overview ‘Nuevo Curso’ sets out the primary points of rupture for the left communist currents that have emerged against the degeneration of the Communist International (1919 – 1927), and attempts to trace their main contemporary political heirs or continuations. Special attention is paid to the left communist current in Spain around Grandizo Munis (1912 – 1989) that broke with Trotskyism on the question of the defense of the Soviet Union during the Second World War. The article testifies of the comrades’ vision of left-communism and its currents as a whole, and of their open, critical attitude toward the contemporary political milieu that lays claim to their respective heritage(s), including the Spanish Left they refer to in particular.
