No More Mimosa by Ethel Mannin: A re-consideration and appreciation

Here's a piece on Ethel Mannin. For those of you who don't know her, her novels and writings from the 1920s-1950s are especially worth digging out. She supported A S Neil and Summerhill, the CNT-FAI in Spain and wrote a novel about the life of Emma Goldman, as well as exploring all sorts of radical ideas.

It started life as a ‘professional’ organisation for nurses, promoting excellence in practice, before registering as a ‘trade union’ in 1976. Scratch the surface of this grubby, conservative, false-flag operation, and you will see it is not a ‘trade union’ by any understanding of the term.
