Shachtman (rt) with Trotsky & Frida Kahlo in Mexico, 1937

From ‘Traven’:

A major milestone for the Left Opposition Digitization Project for the MIA: the complete run of Labor Action, the newspaper of the Workers Party (U.S.) and Independent Socialist League from 1940 through the Autum of 1958. Writers for this paper included, among others, Max Shachtman,  James T. Farrell, C.L.R. James, Raya Dunayevskaya, Hal Draper, and Irving Howe. The 19 years of Labor Action represents approx. 1,000 issues published, over half of which are full broadsheet in size. Presented in beautifully digitaly optimized PDFs, the work was a joint project between the Riazanov Library Project and the Holt Labor Libary. We encourage the free and widespread distribution of this historic archive.
