Harpal Brar: The 1926 British General Strike (£3.00)
<em>The 1926 British General Strike</em> (£3.00)After the defeat of Chartism in the middle of the 19th century, the General Strike of 1926 was the most momentous event in the history of the British working class, with tremendous revolutionary potential. However, it was defeated by the combined forces of the British state, the TUC and the Labour Party.

This pamphlet is designed to explain the background to the strike, its actual course and the final betrayal and surrender by the treacherous leadership of the TUC and the Labour Party, as well as the lessons to be drawn from these historic events for our movement today.
