This document is from the Socialist Party in the UK dating from 1999. The primary interest of this publication is in relation to it being from the sister party of the Socialist Party in Ireland during that time. As such it is useful to provide a point of contrast.
The contents is wide-ranging – the front page article is headlined ‘Pay No Fees’ and argues for readers to ‘Build the mass nonpayment campaign’, ‘Abolish fees’ and ‘Restore the grant’.
There are other pieces on the World Trade Organisation summit in Seattle that year, an article on how the Australian Militant Socialist Organisation ‘is leading a campaign’ against the heroin epidemic in that state and a piece on the Shadow World Government, which examines the role of the Bilderberg Group.
Interestingly there is a mention of Ireland with a piece on how:
THE SOCIETIES Guild at the University College of Cork, (UCC) Ireland, hasbanned the Socialist Party together with the Socialist Society, Socialist Workers Party and Sinn Fein… after they took the legitimate action to stop fascist historian David Irving speaking at the Philosophy Society.
