demise of the July revolution has been rapid. None of the revolutions generally regarded
as the archetypes of social revolution experienced such a giddy decline.

not yet a fact. it is imperative that the inexhaustive genius of proletarian Spain be
tapped once again. We must go out and make a new beginning.

requisite conditions being present and with no possibility of success. One has to be able
to divine the precise moment, psychologically and insurrectionally speaking. The outcome

We may assume, however, that in Spain the conditions will present themselves afresh.

arrive at en armistice and a fraternal embrace will have to be cast on to the dung-heap.
