To (provincial) comrades,

Thx re the info below (reply omitted). I am certain the (CPUSA leadership is) fighting from a position of weakness – thus their desperate measures. Either: they are evaluating they’ve lost the majority of membership support (which forced Hewison’s actions) or 2) they don’t want anything to stand in the way of their (electoral tactic).

Angelo D’Angelo’s comment to the article “Will the real CP please stand up” is from New York, one of the first public recountings of the story there, and indicates growing cohesion and communication among anti-revisionist forces. A sad story from New York.

These top-down measures will never succeed in a revolutionary party.
