Quote:
Two bits of great news. Firstly we have been given a double CD of the interview, and the radio slots that local labour historian Ray Challinor did with Tom Brown during the early 1970’s. I must admit, after searching for info etc on Tom Brown for next to 30 years, that it was quite a moment to actually hear him speaking. The booming voice of the Tyneside shipyards, now 70 odd years old with a frail old voice, but not without his passion for the ‘struggle’. After contemplation, we have decided to give these to the Kate Sharpley Library for possible audio on-line release, so keep an eye out for that.

Great, I've been building an archive of anarchist audio and would love to know when its available

Good interview.
"during the 1980’s there was an explosion of anarchist activity and groups in North East England yet none of this is accounted for, or barely mentioned, in the national anarchist press of the period, and especially in the contacts section of papers like Freedom."
Let us know when the book comes out!

Issues 9 (September 1986) to 12 (February 1987) of Tyneside Syndicalist. As ever the download link / PDF,s are below picture. Issue 9 has a special feature on the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, whilst Issue 12 is a landmark issue as the paper eventually had a name change from being ‘The Syndicalist’ to becoming ‘Tyneside Syndicalist’.

And…as a matter of ‘historical regional trivia’ ! a small group of us in Gateshead used to regularly sell a small amount of each issue (10-15 or so) alongside Class War etc, not very successfully at times, yet there was a notable increase when the name change occurred….

They say all good things come to an end, and so it is with The Tyneside Syndicalist. After Issue 16, it was decided at a readers meeting to put the paper ‘on ice’ for the time being, lack of finances, burnout, and new projects beckoning all contributed (read more in our forthcoming history). Unfortunately, the ice never melted and the paper was never again produced.

Issue 13 – March 1987, Issue 14 – May 1987 has a May Day supplement, Issue 15 – June / July 1987 is the pictured (and my favorite cover), whilst the final Issue 16 – Winter 1987 contains a special supplement commemorating (or commiserating the failings and authoritarian result of much of …) the 70th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
