I've got an old sect wooden-trot friend who who has been shop-steward at Willesden garage for many years now. Willesden garage is prominent in the pamphlet as an old radical garage. I sent this pamphlet online to him, and he and his comrades were all aghast at how brilliant and detailed the worker-writer Penny Fair was and they wanted to know more.

When I told them it was anarchist produced they all fell silent.

Thanks for putting this up. Solidarity had a really wonderful history of doing these sorts of pamphlets or special issues to their mimeographed bulletins. While not exactly sharing their politics, I will always be indebted to them for their "industrial" news and bulletins.

Solidarity weren't technically anarchist, they were libertarian socialists
