Workers Fight

Sean Matgamna in 1966 organized a tendency inside Revolutionary Socialist League (RSL) the which he argued that the, by then effectively the Militant tendency, was too inward looking and needed to become more activist in its orientation. The RSL refused to circulate the document and, with a handful of supporters, he left to form the Workers’ Fight group. Espousing left unity, they accepted an offer in 1968 to form a faction within the International Socialists as the Trotskyist Tendency. The paper was the journal of this long running tendency which eventually merged with others to in 1976 to publish International Communist.

We have only a very fragmentary collection of Workers Fight of which close to 100 were published it's eight years of existence. We will add more as the Splits and Fusions blog adds them to their collection. We want to thank them for insuring the preservation of this valuable project by letting the ETOL copy this files.
