Commentary From The Cedar Lounge Revolution

15th April 2019

Many thanks to the person who forwarded this to the Archive.

This document published by the Communist Party of Ireland is interesting for a number of reasons, not least that while it is dated and numbered as Number 1, there was in fact an earlier publication with the same name issue by the CPI in 1970.

It has a broad range of articles with Betty Sinclair assessing the end of Direct Rule, A Raftery considering ‘The Roots of Coalitionism’, George Jeffares writing ‘After Chile’ and Roy Johnston engaging with ‘Ireland’s Natural Resources’.

    Jeffares was an interesting character. He was a leading Irish communist going back to the Irish Workers’ League era in the 1950s, and visited China. He resigned from the CPI around 1975 with Joe Deasy and others and joined Labour in the 1980s.
