This document is here on the WSM website, but we like to have at least one sample of a publication from an organisation, party or formation in the Archive, even if hosted elsewhere, in order to build a representative sample of their output. We scanned this in (and many thanks to SM for donating a copy for same and the WSM for letting us repost it).

This twenty two page document dating from 2008 is one of a series of this particular publication. It is, as is usual with WSM related materials, designed and printed to a good quality. There is a range of articles contained within including an interview with Larry Wheelock, an assessment of Financial Weapons of Mass Destruction, a piece entitled ‘How free can you be if you can’t even control your own body?’ and a book review.

The publication notes that:

Like most publications of the Left, Red and Black Revolution is not a profit making venture. It exists in order to spread ideas and contribute to the process of changing the world.

And it suggests that readers, if they would like to help, could subscribe, or take copies of the issue to see, and that they are ‘always looking for bookshops or stalls that will see this magazine on a commercial basis’. Notably it gives permission to revolutionary publications to reprint articles.

There’s also a piece on the history of the Workers Solidarity Movement.

Please note: If files have been posted for or to other online archives previously we would appreciate if we could be informed of that. We always wish to credit same where applicable or simply provide links.

Interesting comment on the talk section of the wikipedia page on Terence Wheelock. Says that the WSM had a lot of respect for what they were doing from the Wheelock family and others involved in the campaign. But the SWP was chased away for selling papers and self-promoting. Of course that could have been written by a WSM member. Anyone able to give any insight?
