Various Red Action literature
Red Action Bulletin

I have been resisting uploading the few Red Action bulletins and newspapers I have because they will shortly all be uploaded to the new Red Action website. However, after meeting some members of Revolutionära Fronten (Revolutionary Front) a Swedish organisation which is heavily influenced by Red Action and the Independent Working Class Association.

I promised that I would upload some of the Red Action bulletin editions so they can wet their appetite before the whole collection is released.

If anyone has any other Red Action pamphlets or material please get in touch at: antifascistarchive@gmail.comI can pay for postage and return the items in the same condition you sent them.

Red Action pamphlets

I have uploaded two early Red Action pamphlets. Both are extremely interesting and tell the origin and the history of Red Action.

Click the links to download the pamphlets. The quality is not the best but that is because the quality of the pamphlets was not the best.

Thanks to Kebele Community Co-Operative for these.

  1. I’ve just finished reading “The Making of Red Action” and quite frankly it is a load of workerist claptrap and wishful thinking, with a large dollop of sectarianism thrown in. I left school with no qualifications and went through various mundane jobs. ending up working at the Post Office in 1969. Two years later I found myself on-strike battling over a pay freeze, with the then Prime Minister, Edward Heath and the tory’s in office, who was adamant he was going to radically change Britain using monetary policy (a wage freeze primarily). The strike was solid from day one, apart from, crucially, little, if any support coming from the Post Office Engineers. My activity in the strike was 100 percent, so I learnt a lot in a very short space of time. Paramount to this was treachery from the Trade Union and Labour party leadership (forces of the state too of course). No matter how hard we fought, and we fought bloody hard I can tell you, this treachery, coupled with sectionalism within the working class itself, has given me a hard lesson over the years. I have been involved in many disputes and solidarity actions – all throughout the 1984/85 miners strike for example. During that time I visited numerous factory’s, workplaces and the like to find little support, apart from welfare – donating food and money. Not one workplace, even one of the most organised locally gave any concrete political support to the miners. They, as they were in 1926, were left battling alone. Even worse they were split, as between the Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.coalfields. The ruling class had prepared well, whist we were always on the back-foot. Orgreave being a telling point. We beat them at Orgreave back in 1974 and this is the point I’m making; no confident, well organised working class, with large solidarity action from other workers brings a result in your favour. All the sectarian, wishful thinking, workerist clap-trap in the world don’t change that. Stick someone like Thatcher on top and the balance of forces against the working class winning is more so.
