Red Fightback is no more

I will ring this up as a Maoist Monday…

Red Fightback was a Marxist-Leninist or Maoist influenced group which formed maybe five years ago.

The initial membership was a small group who split from the Revolutionary Communist Group (Fight Racism Fight Imperialism), later joined by a group of youth from the Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist Leninist)

This excellent article in Ebb Magazine covers the group and its demise in great detail.

It is interesting to note a claimed 70 active members…

Whilst Red Fightback did not have a regular publication it had some printable PDF pamphlets on its website (now inaccessible).

The group was also notable for its serious, central approach to liberation politics- in particular trans issues- and for the publication of a substantial book Marxism and Transgender Liberation An interesting and useful analysis despite the initial framing as a debate within small M-L groups.

Fortunately I requested a PDF of this book from them a couple of years ago, which you can find here.

We also downloaded and saved some of their small pamphlets too:
