Smash the Klan -- Riverdale Action Committee Against Racism 1980

Vintage Leftist Leaflet Project

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

Leaflet: Fascism - Smash the Klan, Riverdale Action Committee Against Racism 1980

With anti-immigrant rallies occurring in Toronto and racist, bigoted newspapers that people have organized to try to stop the distribution of through the mail in the city's East End, this is another leaflet from the past that resonates far more than it should.

For more on the history of the committee and its quite effective actions see: Early Anti-Klan Organizing

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 send them to
