The FI in Ireland

November 3, 2015

PloughThe Revolutionary Marxist Group, supporters of the Fourth International in Ireland, was formed in 1971 by former members of the League for a Workers Republic and Young Socialists.

It published a theoretical journal, Marxist Review, and a newspaper The Plough which became Socialist Republic in 1975.

The RMG changed its name to Movement for a Socialist Republic in 1976 and merged with Peoples Democracy in 1978. The fused group kept the name Peoples Democracy for the organisation and its publication was Socialist Republic (incorporating the PD journal Unfree Citizen).

We have now set up a page dedicated to the Irish group here.

In addition to some of the papers mentioned above, it includes a pamphlets and perspective documents which should be of interest.

As always, any additions to our collections are welcomed.

We have also incorporated links to a number of issues of Socialist Republic which are online at the Irish Left Archive, a fantastic resource which hosts papers and documents far wider than our remit.
