Congratulations to CWI Romania and launch of their newspaper!Sâmbătă, la Craiova, grupul nostru a avut o întâlnire cu titlul „De ce fel de stângă avem nevoie?”, ocazie cu care am lansat și primul număr al ziarului Lupta. A fost o discuție foarte interesantă și constructivă, la care au participat reprezentanții mai multor organizații de stânga, arătând că cei mai mulți dintre noi avem suficiente lucruri în comun pentru a face posibilă o formă de colaborare.
Invitatul nostru din Germania, Georg Kümmel de la Alternativa Socialistă (curent socialist în cadrul Die Linke, afiliat internațional la CWI), a subliniat că stânga de care avem nevoie trebuie să ofere o opoziție față de establishment, nu să se asimileze acestuia. Asta înseamnă o stângă asumat socialistă, anti-capitalistă și militantă, care să lupte la firul ierbii pentru nevoile imediate ale oamenilor, pe care să le coreleze de nevoia mai generală de transformare sistemică. Pentru a evita greșelile din trecut, o astfel de stângă ar trebui să fie, de asemenea, cu adevărat democratică și internaționalistă.
