QUEVEDO, Charles  y  SOLER, Lorena. The first Communist Party of Paraguay, the Communist International and the Chaco War. Av. Cesor [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.22, pp.105-125. ISSN 1514-3899.

This paper explores the first years of the Paraguayan Communist Party, based on its insertion as a national section of the Communist International and its relations with this world organization through its regional body: the South American Secretariat. On the first hand, this work takes into account, the conflicts that took place between the Paraguayan national section and the Komintern in a context of imminence of the Chaco War (1932-1935). These disagreements were both related to the possibilities of the Paraguayan section to apply the anti-war tactics promoted by the Communist International and to the internal crisis of the Communist Party of Argentina (1927-1928) that resulted in the split of the group led by Penelón. On the second hand, this paper studies some aspects of the activity of the anti-war committees in Paraguay, a political expression of anti-war movements promoted by the Comintern which sought to transform war into social revolution. Finally, this work analyses the period after the end of the war conflict in which the "revolución Febrerista" (1936) rose up, as a movement that unified different sectors under nationalism and anti-liberalism. By then, the strategy of the Komintern, since its VII Congress in 1935, had undergone a turn by prioritizing the formation of popular fronts, which led Paraguayan communism to join the coalition that supported the government of Rafael Franco (1936-1937). The new strategy allowed the PCP to emerge from political isolation and grow into the insertion in the Paraguayan working world.
