This document is of interest for many reasons, not least its provenance, and also for the mention of Northern.

As noted by Charlie in comments this was the WRP linked Young Socialists. All information gratefully accepted.

And the introduction asserts that:

The Young Socialists fight on all questions affecting youth against the capitalist system which deprives them of security, of education, of a future.

It notes that:

Northern Ireland has brought out more clearly than ever the nature of the struggle against Toryism and the role fo the Wilson and the Labour government. Thousands of young workers entered a struggle for important reforms, the so-called ‘civil rights’. But the Unionist (Tory) government of NI replied with brutal repressions.

And:

Because the struggle for ‘reforms’ had been carried out with the perspective of gradually changing capitalism in NI the young workers were led into a trap.

There is more offering an interesting insight into the analysis of the Young Socialists during this period.

Not eh LPYS. Similar, but not the same.
This is the YS, linked to the Workers Revolutionary party. It had split from the British LP in (?) 1963-4.

Ah apologies and thanks – there we go, the danger of distance. We’ll amend that ASAP.
