Donation appeal to purchase and digitise Solidarity materials

Donation appeal to purchase and digitise Solidarity materials

We are appealing for our users to please donate to us to cover the £180 cost of the purchase of rare materials by Solidarity to digitise them.

We've come across a selection of materials by the UK libertarian socialist group Solidarity including several pamphlets and a very big archive of the original journal Solidarity, with not many issues missing, for commercial sale for £180.

We would like to purchase them in order to scan them and put them online so they are permanently available through our website and also the British Library, which archives libcom.org.

In particular, the journal contains a lot of coverage of the widespread wildcat strikes in the UK in the 1960s, particularly in the car industry.

So if you could spare a few quid/dollars to chuck us to enable us to buy these and put them up it would be much appreciated!

Just visit http://libcom.org/notes/donate

And if you want to let us know in the comments if you have donated then we can keep a running total here.

Hmm... is there anything from Brinton in this collection that's not already in the library? I can make a small contribution now but would like to know..

from Brinton, we're not sure. Although most of the stuff he wrote was originally published in Solidarity it seems, and we will have nearly 70 issues of it, so I imagine so. Certainly there is a lot of stuff by the likes of Ken Weller.
