We apologize for a misquote in the June Call. In the interview with John Martin, the interview quotes May Nai in Unity newspaper as saying, “the policies of RWH, CPML and LRS are at the heart of the current dispute.” It should read “politics held by these (CPML, RWH and LRS) and other groups are at the heart of the current dispute.”

Additionally, to clarify and summarize its view, the LRS has asked us to print the following paragraph from M. Nai’s article.

“We believe the open, public debate of written positions is essential to lay a principled basis of relations among forces with like as well as differing views. Without focusing on politics and line, relations among forces can become affected by innuendo, past conflicts, unprincipled attacks and slanders or even misinformation and assumptions–all of which are unfortunately beginning to be seen again in the M-L movement. A more thorough, genuine, sincere and democratic debate over politics is the key immediate task that should be organized to help clarify the situation and advance unity efforts in the communist movement.”
