From 1925-1928, Dielo Truda (trans: Workers' Cause), was an anarchist publication put out by the Group of Russian Anarchists Abroad, as well as the group itself, made up of anarchists exiled from Russia after the Russian Revolution. In 1926, the group published a pamphlet entitled Organizational Platform of the General Union of Anarchists (Draft). Based in Paris, the Russian exiles had been convinced by their defeat by the Bolsheviks that anarchists needed to have a stronger political structure, including political groups, a militia, and an "executive committee".
>==Controversy== In response to the platform put forth by Dielo Truda, many anarchists, including Errico Malatesta, SÃ©bastien Faure, Alexander Berkman, and Voline, criticized it as being authoritarian, and therefore contradictory to anarchism. Although there was little support for the platform at the time, a resurgence of platformism was seen in the 1950's, and there are many Platform influenced anarchist organizations today, such as NEFAC and Ireland's Workers Solidarity Movement.
