What is the World Peace Council, 1975

Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project

See the end of this post for details on the project.

Leaflet: What is the World Peace Council, 1975

Released in 1975 this leaflet gives a brief overview of the history, raison d'être, objectives at the time and structure of the World Peace Council. While the WPC was founded in 1949 to fight for an anti-war, anti-nuclear and anti-imperialist agenda during the Cold War, it continues to work for these objectives in the post-Cold War era.

When The Left Chapter began part of what I wanted to do on the blog was to show and highlight vintage public leftist election/political leaflets and booklets. While many of these have been offered with commentary to date, a very large collection of hundreds of them from several different sources remains and to preserve these often quite rare documents we will be posting them on a regular (almost daily) basis now often without or with minimal commentary so that people may have access to them as quickly as possible as an historical resource. 

While these will all be leaflets from a variety of different leftist viewpoints and countries, they are being posted as an historical/study resource and the views or opinions expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of this blog or blogger.

All of these posts (as well as posts made to date) will be listed on the page: Vintage Communist/Socialist Leaflets (which is still being updated with past posts).

If you have any public, vintage leaflets or booklets you would like to contribute to this project please contact us via
