I write to you from the YCL USA office in
I'm on the 8th floor here and the office takes up several rooms. High ceiling. White walls covered with posters, newspaper clippings, photos. Upbeat. Excited. "We got the greetings from the such and such group, but its in Arabic and we can't pull it up." One day till convention kicks off. Everyone is so welcoming.
The entire building belongs to the Party. An old photo by the elevator: Black and white, the same building, 1930s, big poster: Vote Communist! Class Against Class! A few steps down is a huge pile of "PPW's." And a copy PVs sitting there too.
