update on the activities of the commune around britain

– The Commune has recently produced two new pamphlets to add to its series. Storming heaven: The Paris Commune of 1871 (£1+50p postage) looks at the world’s first working-class revolution, with both Marx’s description of the commune and a Solidarity article critiquing traditional leftist assumptions about its failings. What is the London postal strike really about? (50p+50p postage) features Sheila Cohen’s interviews with two CWU reps.
