At the beginning of October the Swiss comrades of Der Funke took an important step forward in their work of spreading Marxist ideas in Switzerland by beginning the publication of their journal for the first time not only in German (Der Funke), but also in French (l`Étincelle) and in Italian (la Scintilla). These are the three main languages spoken in the overwhelming majority of the different regions of Switzerland, and this is therefore a very important step for the Swiss Marxists.
At the moment the Italian language journal is perhaps the most in demand, because of the workers' struggle in Bellinzona and there are also many Italian workers in the German-speaking part of the country. There are also possibilities of developing the Marxist tendency in the French-speaking city of Geneva. Equipped with these journals, the Swiss Marxists are now able to intervene in the workers' movement on a national scale.
