The Crunch

CounterPunch publishes David Bonner’s article on George Demmerle


“…David Bonner’s brilliant portrait of a police spy, active in the late 60s and recently deceased. The discovery of a Tsarist spy, Roman Malinovsky, in their highest party echelons came as deadly fuel for paranoia to Lenin, Stalin and the Bolsheviks. The late George Demmerle wasn’t a provocateur of that caliber or importance, but Bonner’s piece is a worthy addition to the snitch file.”
