Comrade Snehal S, formerly a leader of the Austin branch, posts on Facebook:
An open note to the “ISO Renewal Faction”: please check your facts. There are no “12 people” who have “been lost”…we know where they all are and only two of them have left the organization. This is at best irresponsible on your part, our political disagreements aside.
This is in response to the following from our platform document on the organizational crisis:
In Austin, the oldest Texas branch with the most cadre, about a dozen members have been lost in the last few months.
Here I’d like to briefly reply to Snehal, because his reaction typifies how many comrades delude themselves about the existence of a crisis in the ISO.
