Short Description

»Gegenstimmen« was founded in 1980 by a "Socialist Committee« in Vienna - a goup of leftist intellectuals with rather Maoist than Moscow-related sympathies. In a standard text included in many issues opf the journal the editors are introducing themselves in the following way:
»More and more Socialists and Marxists in the West are taking a stand against the suppression of democratic freedoms in Eastern European countries. The labor movement has the same international responsibility in this area as in supporting anti-imperialist struggles in the Third World. A socialist strategy in the West must be one with the anti-bureaucratic struggles in the East. The Stalinist regimes in Eastern Europe have discredited socialism in the eyes of many. Therefore, we can not leave reporting on these countries and solidarity with the democratic and socialist opposition to the bourgeois media.«
CEEOL has re-digitized the journal (as far as issues were available), because we consider this specific point of view on Central and Eastern European Communism as a significant element of the contemporary approach to the reality in this part of Europe.
