Meeting to Launch Vol. 10 No. 4 of Revolutionary History
'European Revolutionaries and Algerian Independence 1954 – 1962'
This volume considers the course of the Algerian War 1954-1962, and the response of the French and European left. It gives the fullest account in English of the role of the revolutionary left in giving political and practical solidarity to the Algerian liberation struggle. It presents substantial extracts from Sylvain Pattieu’s Les camarades des frères (Paris 2002), and gives the fullest account of the role of Trotskyists in this period, drawing on documents and interviews with participants.
Speakers: Ian Birchall
Fritz Keller (Vienna – author of Internationalism in Practice: The Austrian Left and the Algerian Resistance.)
