Summary/Abstract: Ion Flueras was one of the most important leaders of the Social Democratic movement in Transylvania and in all of Romania, after 1918. He was born on November 2, 1882 in the village of Cherelus (Arad County). In 1901 he joined the Socialist movement and soon became one of its main advocates. He contributed articles to the workers’ newspapers from Arad and to Adevărul, the semi-official newspaper of the Romanian division of the Hungarian Social Democratic Party. In 1906 he was elected member of the central committee of the Romanian division of the Hungarian Social Democratic Party. Starting with 1911 he became editor in chief of the Adevărul newspaper. At the beginning of 1918, Flueras and Iosif Jumanca were charged to create a common headquarters together with the representatives of the National Romanian Party, in order to fight for the unification of Transylvania with Romania. The Central National Romanian Council was created in Arad, made of six Social Democrats (Ion Flueras, Iosif Jumanca, Baziliu Surdu, Iosif Renoiu, Enea Grapini and Tiron Albani) and six representatives of the National Romanian Party. Ion Flueras took part in the Great Union that took place at Alba Iulia on December 1, 1918. He was also a member of the Directing Council and the chief of the Department of Social Protection and Hygiene. This article tries to capture the political activity of Ion Flueras until the beginning of the uprising of Romanians from Transylvania that eventually led to the unification of Transylvania with Romania.
