A few rough reds now on line

"A few rough reds" (RR1) has now gone into hyperspace. Thanks to long hours by the amazing Mark Gregory the book is now up there as readable pages and as downloadable PDF's at http://roughreds.com The print run for Rough Reds 1 sold out 12 months ago but these stories will now find a new and global readership. Already used in activist training, the stories are now much more accessible as case studies for use in education and activism.
Thanks to Phil Griffiths for making the files of the book available and
clearing potential copyright issues with the Labour History Group in
Canberra. Chris Elenor
