Where there is a major class confrontation in which imperialism
is on one side and  millions of workers and peasants  fighting for
wealth redistribution, land reform, and sovereignty are on the
other side,  it seems to me that there should be little doubt
as to which side of the class war fence Marxists (and progressives
in general)  should be on.  *At the very least*,  progressives
have the *responsibility*  to make sure that they have accurate
sources and a thorough knowledge of the situation *before*
they condemn such a popular movement.  This is part of what
solidarity means.

In solidarity, Jerry
