Title:Better -- Fewer but Better
Date:1972
Description:

Alternative title: A Statement on the Anti-War Demonstrations from Revolutionary Age Vol. 2, No. 2 Calls for: 1) “It is time to break with liberal pacifism! It is time to split from the anti-war movement all the supporters of the Democratic liberals, all the Jesus freaks and muddle-headed liberals to whom the SWP, CP and pacifists cater in order to build the size and ‘effectiveness’ of the movement.” 2) Organize “a meaningful alliance of those who are the main victims of capitalism and the war: the working class, unemployed workers and welfare recipients -- and those oppressed above and beyond their status of workers, as women, blacks, Chicanos, etc.” Background information: “The Freedom Socialist Party was originally the Seattle branch of the Socialist Workers Party. Richard Fraser and Clara Fraser were its main leaders until their personal and political relations collapsed, leading to a split and divorce. It is allied with the feminist group Radical Women. Although still based in Seattle, it has expanded and has branches along the West Coast and elsewhere. Internationally it has small affiliates in Australia and Canada.” (Freedom Socialist Party.
