Carlo Tresca was a communist editor assassinated in New York.


Tresca broke with the party and became an intense opponent of the Stalinists and was allied with anarchists.


Tresca was gunned down in New York City in January 1943. His widow and friends said he had been slain because of his refusal to enter into a United Front with the Communists.[citation needed]
