The following appeal was issued today by the national office of the Communist League of America (Opposition) to all the readers of The Militant:

Dear Comrades:

You have already learned from the Militant of the great enterprises of the Left Opposition in response to the crisis in Germany – the publication of the Militant three times a week.

We have undertaken this great task – which involves heavy additional financial burdens – without any resources except our confidence that you and other Communist workers will support our initiative with your solidarity and financial aid.

In these fateful days for the international proletarian movement, it is the Left Opposition alone that sounds the alarm, explains and interprets the events and shows the Communist workers the way to their international duty. Every dollar that is contributed to support the thrice-a-week publication of the Militant is a weight in the scale for the German working class. Your contribution now, at this critical moment, is of a hundred-fold greater importance than at ordinary times.

We ask you to give a special contribution to the Militant. Your help is desperately needed and will especially appreciated now.


Yours fraternally,
J.P. Cannon
