Amsterdam, December 28, 1945

Socialist Workers Party,
New York

Dear Friends:

The Congress of the Revolutionary Communist Party, section of the Fourth International in Holland, founded on the 23rd of December 1945, is sending its fraternal greetings to your party.

We learned of your activity in connection with the strike of the General Motors workers, which struggle weakens the heart of world imperialism.

We know that the General Motors have many imperialist interests in Indonesia and that therefore the strike means an immediate support to the Indonesian masses in their heroic fight for freedom against the Dutch imperialists.

We welcome the common fight of the American and Dutch workers against imperialism. We welcome the common activity with the oppressed colonial people.

We send you our warm greetings.

For the Revolutionary Communist Party of Holland,

S. Santen
