Workers Vanguard No. 1153

Jim Robertson


Last week, Jim Robertson, a central founder of the Spartacist League/U.S. and the International Communist League, died. 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/U.S. 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, as well as notices for memorials, will be published in an upcoming issue of Workers Vanguard.
