An important victory. The struggle for socialism must entail the struggle for democratic rights. The danger of fascism continues today.

That struggle for democratic rights must be waged from a radical and concrete point of view, not in terms of abstract bourgeois democratic rights.

That is part of shaping civil society in the direction of socialism.
