I haven’t got the faintest what this one is about* but I am enjoying imagining it as an exhortation to our Trotskyist comrades to throw off their shackles and join us outside the party and against capital.


*Probably about a lad named Trots who got banged up. Any info welcome.

Freedom For Trots!

Came across this - Original mananananana Nuttah (UK) Apache on a dancehall track railing against the poll tax and wider anti-state exploitation!

This tells us its about 'Desmond Trotter for the 1974 murder of a US tourist in Domenica. (Trots was fingered by a young lady from Antigua called Pretty Pig, the court was told.)'

But that is doing Trots a massive disservice. He was a Dominican Black Power and trade union activist, sentenced by the Crown to hang for the murder of said tourist. He was defended by (Granadian revolutionary) Maurice Bishop.


And a piece from the ghost of Leon Trotsky himself (on p3) - https://www.marxists.org/history/etol/newspape/workersvanguard/1976/0103_02_04_1976.pdf


All in all, a very fitting piece for this thread.
