Commentary From The Cedar Lounge Revolution

1st June 2020

Many thanks to the person who forwarded this to the Archive.

This edition of The Worker, from the Socialist Workers’ Movement, dating from July/August 1977 has a lead article about international financiers and speculators, arguing that ‘they talk about sacrifice but They Kill For Money’. Other pieces examine how ‘Trade Unionists Fight Repression’. A longer pieces looks at Independent Labour’s Noel Browne and Matt Merrigan and their envisaged alternative to the Labour Party.

In the letter’s column there is an exchange on the nature of the Provisionals between a ‘Belfast Socialist’ and The Worker. Other pieces look at emigration, and the historical efforts to fight it.

International issues are covered in pieces on Spain and Portugal.
