1983 The Fourth International after 1968 2

In this part of the lecture, Bensaïd commences with a criticism of the Ninth World Congress, considering that its resolutions arrived late considering the context of, mainly, Latin America. He then gives a detailed context of the political condition in Latin America and a detailed analysis of political positions as well as debates. He continues a criticism of the Ninth World Congress on two points: The political context for the discussion of armed struggle was misconceived; secondly, general definitions and concrete experiences were different. Commenting on various experiences from the continent, Bensaïd mentions debates around democratic demands, transitional period, and the national question.
