Workers Hammer No. 245

Summer 2019


Jim Robertson

1928 – 2019

Jim Robertson, a central founder of the Spartacist League/US and the International Communist League, died in early April. He was 90 years old and had been a member of the workers movement for more than 70 years. He remained an active collaborator and an essential component of the leadership of the SL/US and of the ICL up until the very end.

His death is a tremendous loss to the ICL. We extend our condolences to Jim’s family and his numerous friends and comrades.

A thorough appreciation of Jim’s life and work will be published in an upcoming issue of Workers Hammer.
