On the line - Libertarian Workers Group/Workers Solidarity Alliance

'On the Line' was a agitational newsletter put out by the New York based Libertarian Workers Group, which was affliated with the Anarchist Communist Federation of North American and one of the founders of Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA). It then became an occasional newsletter of WSA in New York/New Jersey.

Hey mate, thanks for putting this up, that's great! And thanks to WSA for keeping these.

Thanks Juan for your efforts! Should Juan continue to type these out, folks will notice format changes, but the politics themselves and general shopfloor focus remained the same.

Thanks for posting all of these, syndicalist! I had no idea that they continued after the few that I had typed up and scanned a few years ago...

If you have more to add, just go to the year on here when it was made and click 'add child page'. If it's a year that isn't already listed, click on 'add child page' on this page to create a new page of just that year and then do what the previous sentence says. If you can't figure it out, just post what you were going to anyway, and I'll move it over.

I've added images to all of the issues by splitting the PDFs and converting the cover/first page of the PDF into a JPEG. You should be able to just do this yourself with your scanner, rather than taking a picture with your camera or cell phone. You obviously have a scanner that makes PDFs, so you should be able to scan into JPEGs, which can be uploaded as a header image. If you don't know how to do this, you should ask someone you know, or look at the manual. Generally, the better quality or relevant the image, the more likely someone may want to read an entry in the library, or have a better idea of what it's about.

Please do not add any tags to any of the articles. Just let me or another admin do this. I've tried to explain how the tags work, but unfortunately you're still creating quite a few duplicate and unnecessary ones, which I have to go through and delete one by one. If you create 2-5 in each posting, and create 10-20 postings in a day or two, that means I or the admins have 20-100 tags we have to go through and delete. This takes a lot of time that can be better used uploading material that we have, answering questions from our users, organizing articles, adding images or any of the other tasks we have. I'm willing to spend as much time as it takes in assisting you with your contributions and making the material look as good and presentable as possible, but the process of going through bad tags is starting to get a bit exhausting...

Again, thanks for adding all of the stuff, looking forward to whatever you decide to upload next!
