RED ACTION AND CLASS WAR: EARLY DAYS

sean

This is a page from RED ACTION number 8. If you look closely at bottom right you will see a short piece entitled ‘Anarchy in the Uk’ which welcomes the appearance of the first two issues of Class War and looks forward to a possible future working relationship. Class War welcomed a number of Red Actionists to an action outside the Rose Ball in Park lane a few weeks later and a number of people – including Tim Wells from the legendary Anti-Social Workers maintained friendly and active in both camps for a while. A few of us were even at a certain fracas at the Roebuck in Charing Cross Road.

    Ah, fond memories of RA crazy-bastards battering a frshly minted LibDem spod, at a public meeting in a library- on the basis that he was dressed like a posh twat…and he really was- looked like something out of Ms.Marple. lols

    On Tyneside, there was certainly contact between Red Action people and some of the anarcho-punk-syndicalist Gateshead Music Collective types; witness this RUN OF THE FIRST NINE ISSUES, (sniff), of Red Action at the bottom of me Memory Box. I have to say that younger comrades tend to find them rather more interesting than the complete run of the “Tyneside Syndicalist”, produced a few years later.

    I also have to say that amongst the best comrades I have ever met would be some of the Red Action crew that were expelled from the SWP during the “squaddist” purges; I’d stand with them anytime.
