A reply to Copelyn and Zikalala by Jeremy Cronin, who makes the point that: This is not an official SACP response to Copelyn and Zikalala. The views expressed there coincide, more or less (I would like to believe), with those of many of my Party comrades. But my views are not the Party line any more than the views of Copelyn and Zikalala represent some official COSATU or general trade union perspective. The debate is open and it cuts across organisational affiliations. So much the better.
