Workers Vanguard No. 1052

19 September 2014



In Part Two of “Then and Now” (WV No. 1051, 5 September), we wrote that 29 Socialist Workers Party leaders and Minneapolis Teamsters officials were convicted and jailed under the Smith Act for opposing World War II. In fact, of the 29 charged, 18 were imprisoned. The article “Quebec Liberals Prepare Austerity Onslaught” (WV No. 1049, 11 July) wrongly stated that the last Parti Québecois government set up the “anti-corruption” Charbonneau commission. Actually, the previous Liberal government did so, in 2011.
