As Leon Trotsky once wrote, the revolutionary party is the memory of the working class. It is, it must be, also the memory of the Marxist movement itself. Documents, newspapers, reminiscences, carbon copies are the repositories of this memory. The AWL has over the years accumulated a considerable amount of such material, and not only of our own tendency, over the last four decades. We have decided to organise and augment this material, and to make it available to scholars of the movement and others.
We are setting up a Phoenix Marxist and Labour Movement Archive.
We appeal to comrades and sympathisers to send us relevant material – pamphlets, internal bulletins, letters and so on. Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The donors of all material will be acknowledged.
