And these new members should join the PTP membership drive, to bring more people in for preparation of the strike.
The PTP membership drive must base itself on the masses and have a mass line. And the dedication and willpower to turn the PTP and PCR into forces of the masses. Building up strength in the economiic struggle and the political struggle, including in elections, to pave the way for the Argentinazo.
