Once more on the Chartist tendency

chartFurther to our previous update on the Chartist group we are able to bring you a further 32 issues of the Chartist newspaper from the early to mid 1970s – series 2 issues 1 – 34.

We have renamed some of our archive folders to reflect the fact that there were two series of Chartist. The first series, beginning as the bulletin of the Young Chartists ran until September 1972, issue 17.

Thereafter, series two starts with this (somewhat dishevelled) issue headed Monthly Journal Of The Socialist Charter Movement.

By issue three this had changed to Labour’s Only Revolutionary Voice. However, by the next issue, and subsequently, this became simply Labours Revolutionary Voice- perhaps other revolutionary entrist groups had threatened to sue!
