Abstract

Towards the end of the 1930's I was a member of the Brighton Branch of the Communist Party. Our main campaign was against war and fascism and we were particularly active in rallying support for the Spanish Republican Government. We did take up these issues at local level to the extent that we gave publicity to the war—mongering policies of local councillors, some of whom were very closely identified with army recruiting campaigns. But I cannot remember working out any ideas on the needs of the local community.
