  • Description

    THE ITALIAN COMMUNIST PARTY - THE BIGGEST IN THE WESTERN WORLD - IS HOLDING ITS ANNUAL CONGRESS IN ROME. IT OPENED YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) WITH AN APPEAL TO ROMAN CATHOLICS FOR CO-OPERATION TO BUILD A NEW ITALIAN SOCIETY.

    THE CONGRESS, WHICH LASTS SIX DAYS, REPRESENTS 1,600,000 MEMBERS OF THE ITALIAN COMMUNIST PARTY. MANY FOREIGN OBSERVERS ARE ATTENDING, BUT NONE FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA OR ALBANIA.

    IT OPENED WITH ITS OWN INTERNAL DIFFERENCES OVERSHADOWED BY THE CRISIS TO FORM A SUCCESSOR TO THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT WHICH WAS DEFEATED IN PARLIAMENT LAST WEEK.

    SIGNOR LONGO, MAKING THE KEYNOTE SPEECH, POSED A QUESTION TO ROMAN CATHOLICS: "IS IT NOT NECESSARY," HE ASKED, "TO SEARCH TOGETHER FOR POINTS OF MEETING AND OF COLLABORATION WHICH THERE ARE BETWEEN YOU AND US?" HE URGED A JOINT EFFORT TO CONSTRUCT A SOCIETY FREED FROM WAR, FROM EXPLOITATION, AND FROM WANT.

    A WIDE RANGE OF SUBJECTS WILL BE DEBATED, AND MANY SPEAKERS ARE EXPECTED TO LAUNCH ATTACKS ON UNITED STATES POLICY IN VIETNAM.
