sslWe have previously featured the Scottish Socialist magazine- a venture supported by IMG members in Scotland.

Now we are able to complete the set with the addition of Scottish Socialist no6 and the Scottish Socialist League’s Manifesto for the 1977 council elections…

Enjoy!

 

1972 Red Mole Miners Strike specials

Red Mole1972 saw the first official national miners’ strike since 1926 and the IMG threw itself into strike support.

We present here two issues of a Red Mole strike special which was produced by the IMG in Scotland.

Both are nicely duplicated four page papers.

Thanks to Stewart M for sending us a load of very nice material- mainly from IMG Scotland. Expect a slew of interesting posts in the near future.

First up, however, not from Scotland but from Birmingham- Socialist Unity broadsheet from the 1977 Ladywood by-election…

Questions of Method and Theory…

August 15, 2018

tumblr_nquok7K7v51u0ar0do1_500.jpgDuring a recent online exchange, we were asked whether there was “an official history” of the IMG available, like those written by Peter Taaffe and Ian Birchall on the Militant and IS/SWP respectively.

The lack of any such history is one of the reasons we have published several items on Red Mole Rising, under the heading “Notes For A History of the IMG”

We are pleased therefore to publish “Questions of Method and Theory in the History of the IMG-SL 1970-1985” by Mike Mcnair.

As Mike notes, at over 200 pages this is arguably nearer a book than a document. It also was written for an audience that was familiar with many of the events described rather than for an external audience.

We would like to thank Mike Mcnair for his permission to publish the material on Red Mole Rising.

1968- The IMG, SLL, CP, Vietnam and Czechoslovakia!

newsWe present here four leaflets or pamphlets from Bruce R’s collection of 1968 materials.

Firstly an IMG statement on Czechoslovakia and the Soviet invasion dated 23rd August 1968

At the same time the IMG issued an Open Letter to members of the Communist Party and Young Communist League covering very similar ground.

Then we have a reply to the attacks on the IMG by the Socialist Labour League’s paper The Newsletter over the issues of Czechoslovakia and Vietnam and the basis on which the IMG participated in marches and solidarity actions.

Finally, Pat Jordan’s speech to a September 17th public meeting of the Ad Hoc Committee was reproduced as a four page bulletin “Owing to constant interruption from supporters of the ultra-left Mao-ist oriented British Vietnam Solidarity Front, it was considered desirable that the speech be reproduced”
