§Event canceled

One week prior to the event, it was discovered that one speaker (the Trotskyist) had published an anti-Semitic letter in the East Bay Express years ago. Believe it or not, there was reluctance to call him to account. Finally, he was asked whether he had an explanation. He stood by his reference to the "old Jewish-Stalinist guard." Yet the ICSS chief still decreed that this man would speak on a panel in celebration of Marx! Then, knowing that the issue could well come up at the event, the ICSS chief canceled it.
