There Will Come a Day… Imperialism and the Working Class. By Gotfred Appel [Futura 1971, 31 p.]
English edition of : Gotfred Appel: Der kommer en dag… : Imperialisme og arbejderklasse. Kbh, Futura, 1971, 29 s.
Contains a number of articles that were first published in “Kommunistisk Orientering” (Communist Orientation) in 1967 and 1968, as well as a flyer, that was distributed at B & W Shipyard Christianshavn in May 1968. The articles deal with opportunism and the work of the workers in Western Europe in the light of imperialism, and the consequences for the Communists’ work in the rich part of the world.
“The almost 100.000 votes against, the some 170.000 votes in favour at the voting, and the some 270.000 votes which were not cast at all thus expressly serve to show that the working class has been split up, is without common determination, without genuine class solidarity, without genuine class consciousness. When this is said, and in our opinion it m u s t be said, it must also be said and heavily stressed that this situation in the Danish working class is a temporary and transitory phenomenon. It is a phenomenon which has been caused by a certain historical, economic and ideological development, and it will change again under a new historical, economic and ideological development.”
