Workers Vanguard No. 1071

10 July 2015



In the article “The Police and the 1918-19 German Revolution” (WV No. 1060, 23 January), we said: “On 4 January 1919, the KPD’s Die Rote Fahne wrote: ‘The police force was trying to be a revolutionary police force, rather than actively or passively serving the counterrevolution,’ thus reinforcing in the working class the widespread misconception that Eichhorn and his cops could be the guarantors of the revolution.” In fact, the issue of Die Rote Fahne quoted was dated 5 January 1919.
