‘Don’t Vote for the National Traitors’ -1970 poster from The Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist – Leninist) August 19, 2013


From 1970 a poster from the The Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist – Leninist) Dublin Branch with the slogan ‘Don’t Vote for the National Traitors’. I’m not quite sure if the ‘National Traitors’ were the CPI or just everyone else on the political spectrum to the CPI(ML).

‘Workers and Unemployed Movement’ Meeting Poster 1985 September 28, 2009


This is a poster, I had at home, advertising a meeting to be held on the 12th September 1985 against the ‘Free’ State pay Freeze. A public sector pay freeze had been announced and the ‘Workers and Unemployed Movement’ had organised the meeting. During that period the North Star Hotel was a regular venue for such meetings, it appears to have fallen out of fashion these days. The Blue Tac marks in the corners are due to it being hung on my bedroom wall for a number of years.

The ‘Workers and Unemployed Movement’ was part of  the Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist-Leninist).  Attached also in the post is the cover of Marxist Leninist Weekly dated September 4th 1985 giving a background to the meeting. Many thanks to Conor for taking the time to get that and helping me link the CPI-ML with the meeting. Thanks also to the others that helped make the link between the ‘Workers and Unemployed Movement’ and the CPI-ML .
