John Riddell: Democracy in Lenin's Comintern

How did Communist parties handle issues of internal discipline and democracy in Lenin’s time? The recent intense discussion within the British Socialist Workers’ Party (SWP) and beyond has heard claims that the SWP rests on the traditions of democratic centralism inherited from the Bolsheviks.

One of the biggest changes since the inception of the IS Network is comrades' willingness to work with other organisations. We have seen this through joint meetings with the IWW in Sheffield and our discussions with Anti-Capitalist Initiative and Socialist Resistance. The latest development of our relationship with the latter two organisations has been coming together to produce a magazine publication 'The Exchange'.


Comrades may have caught the first issue [pdf], which was distributed at the People's Assembly Against Austerity in Westminster. That issue was launched by ACI with contributions from members of other organisations. In keeping with our revolutionary unity discussions however, issue two, which is due for release at the Tory party conference demonstration on 29 September, sees the IS Network and Socialist Resistance team up with ACI to make The Exchange a joint publication.

We encourage all comrades attending the demonstration on 29 September to help distribute The Exchange and help broaden our exchange of ideas. If any comrades are unable to attend the demo and would like copies of The Exchange then This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
