: Can anyone out there give me some background info(i.e. history, polical ideology, membership etc..) on the Spartacist League? I would also love to know if any member of the SL would like to be interviewed for my research paper. Get back to me ASAP.

CHE's reply:

Sparticist League should have their own website. However, I may be able to help you a little.

I believe they were formed circa 1961 (?) resulting from a split from the Socialist Workers Party, a Trotskyist organiztion.

Recently they endured another factional split when SL expelled General Secretary, Jan Norden for engaging in political activites outside of SL. Norden and a few others formed a new group, though the name escapes me.

I encourage you to check out the Sparticist League web site for yourself, and also check some of the other organizations (e.g. Marxist-Leninist, Trotskyist, Anarchist, Socialist, 4th International, etc) to field some pro and cons about Sparticist League.

Good Luck. Dr. Che
