Irish Workers League – No to The Common Market Leaflet 1961 April 3, 2010


I was sent this by a kind reader who notes…
‘…. information leaflet from 1961. It’s a No to the Common Market leaflet, and it was produced by the Irish Workers League, which was the Southern communist organisation at that time – the other grouping being the Communist Party of Northern Ireland. both merged in 1970 to form the CPI.’

It is an interesting enough read telling what would come to pass were we to join the then ‘Common Market’ and giving an Alternative Irish Economy. The EU of today which has no restriction on the flow of capital, goods or labour between member countries’ has come to pass. The effect of Ireland joining as spelt out also came true in areas such as ‘A serious weakening of the position of State industries’, ‘The wiping out of a large section of Irish Industry’ and emigration flourished for 25 years after our initial membership.
