: 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.
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
