Solidarity: West-London Newspaper 1969/1970
We are excited to have found some copies of the west London newspaper of the organisation Solidarity from 1969 and 1970. We share some basic ideas with Solidarity – the need for workers’ self-organisation and revolution. It is fascinating to read that they have been active in the same area where we work and distribute our paper WorkersWildWest 50 years later, in Acton, Wembley, Perivale.
The layout and design of our newspaper is way better, but unlike us Solidarity managed to form a UK wide organisation with strong international links.
