they did the kolinko call centre :: inquiry :: communism analysis book, which was well boring wink. Some interesting stuff though. I met one of them who was working as a janitor in London, M, a cool guy and his gf who is in some group based in the UK linked to them but can't remember the name. He did a strikewatch bulletin for a while which was despatched by email and published in Freedom, and he was saying they were gonna do a europe-wide one, which'd be excellent, so will check it out now...

My friend was telling me about this, from all accounts it seems like it's got some good ideas and interesting articles.

I'm printing it too- does look very well put together.

It has an article of Laing O'Rourke, so perhaps it has a Womble connection?

I am informed by a trusted comrade that they have nothing to do with the wombles... I'm suprised though, that Laing thing was quite small..

Agree with the hotlines comment from kalabine..they do seem to have excellent politics to me.

Yeah although they do seem pretty viscously anti-syndicalist/anti-union...
