High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Second
International (1889-1916) was an organization of socialist and
labour parties formed in Paris on July 14, 1889. At the Paris
meeting delegations from 20 countries participated. It continued
the work of the dissolved First International, though excluding the
still-powerful anarcho-syndicalist movement and unions, and was in
existence until 1916. Among the Second International's most famous
actions were its (1889) declaration of May 1 as International
Workers' Day and its (1910) declaration of March 8 as International
Women's Day. It initiated the international campaign for the 8-hour
working day. The International's permanent executive and
information body was the International Socialist Bureau (ISB),
based in Brussels and formed after the International's Paris
Congress of 1900. Emile Vandervelde and Camille Huysmans of the
Belgian Labour Party were its chair and secretary. Vladimir Ilyich
Lenin was a member from 1905.
