Left Wing Caucus of the
Young Socialist League


     The Left Wing Caucus represented a left-wing tendency within the Young Socialist League.  Their slogan, "Unity to Left," invited controversy among the less radical members of the YSL, who believed that they wished to unite with the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party.  Instead, the group urged the development of a coalition of those who are closest to their ideology already and are moving to the left. 

     They also criticize Michael Harrington's depiction of their caucus as a group of Trotskyists while at the same time urging the avoidance of working with reformist groups and parties, such as the Socialist Party and the support of Communists for the Democratic Party.
