Published by Active/Elephant, 70 pages. Very small A6 size booklet - c.10cm by 14cm (N6203)

From the introduction: The eight libertarian militants on trial in the Old Bailey in 1972 who were chosen by the British State to be the `conspirators' of the Angry Brigade, found themselves facing not only the class enemy with all its instruments of repression, but also the obtusity and incomprehension - when not condemnation - of the organised left.

Described as mad, terrorists, adventurists, or at best authors of gestures of a worrying desperation, the Angry Brigade were condemned without any attempt to analyse their actions or to understand what they signified in the general context of the class struggle in course. The means used to justify this were simple: by defining the actions of the Angry Brigade as terrorist, and equating this with individualist, the movement organisations - whose tendency is to see the relationship between individual and mass as something in contrast - neatly excluded them from their concerns.


Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a price printed and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover
