Issue #1906      March 9, 2020

Australian Communist Thought and History

This week is our last on exploring Internationalism. We have an article, originally published in the AMR in 1997 (#37), by a world-renown plant geneticist, Erna Bennett. Her article outlines the differences between bourgeois and socialist understandings of nationalism and internationalism. On 5th March 1953, Joseph Stalin, passed away. His passing was felt across the world. Memorials were had everywhere; Australia was no exception. Here, the Guardian showcases the CPA’s response to his passing. However, Australian communists weren’t the only ones who felt the loss. The Australian working class in general felt greatly for Stalin. This is highlighted in an additional article that shows printers who worked at The Daily Telegraph refusing to print a poster celebrating his death – a direct defiance of Frank Packer’s orders.
