XI WORLD WAR AND REVOLUTION

I

WHEN the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated at Sarajevo at the end of June 1914, there were few who thought that the incident would lead to a general war. By the time of the Austrian declaration of war against Serbia on 28th July, however, the Socialists at least had awakened to the importance of the crisis and were actively campaigning through the Press and with mass demonstrations against the threatened war. This was in accordance with the programme for emergencies laid down by the resolutions of the international conferences at Stuttgart and Copenhagen. The executive of the B.S.P. for its part held a meeting at short notice and passed a resolution declaring that it 'heartily congratulates the Social-Democrats of Vienna, Berlin, Paris, and other centres upon their vigorous efforts to prevent the outbreak of war, and pledges its members to do their utmost to support similar pacific efforts in Great Britain'.1 Dan Irving, then the B.S.P. representative on the International Socialist Bureau, together with Keir Hardie and Bruce Glasier attended the specially summoned meeting of the Bureau in Brussels on 29th July, but could do no more than pass a fresh resolution urging the workers of all nations to 'strengthen their demonstration against war'.2
