The death of Comrade Hugo
has deeply moved us all. With him disappears one of the last
representatives of the handful of leading cadre who, following
WWII, maintained the continuity of Leon Trotsky's struggle in
difficult conditions, as our movement was still very isolated.
Beyond the differences which separated us, we were united by the
same resolution to maintain this continuity against all odds.
Having crossed that
desert, today in many countries we find ourselves with
possibilities of obvious growth as a result of the overall
crisis of imperialism, capitalism and Stalinism, combined with
the increase in workers' combativity. Thus the facts confirm
that Hugo's generation, which is also mine, hasn't struggled in
We will remember Moreno,
above all, for his fight to forge working-class independence of
the Argentine proletariat, one of the most militant in the
world, and for his efforts to spread the writings and thought of
Leon Trotsky. To his party, the MAS, to his family, to his
comrades and closest friends, we send our fraternal condolences.
Revolutionaries don't give
in before death; instead they proclaim the permanence of life,
of struggle, and of the revolution.
Long live the Argentine
and Latin American working class!
Long live the world socialist revolution!
Long live the Fourth International!
