Magazine made in West Germany. This magazine was made in the 3rd.. year, no. 3, march 1974. The full title reads:”International Solidarity, magazine from League against imperialism”. The League Against Imperialism was a Maoist organization in the 1970s that supported the “liberation struggle of the oppressed peoples of the world”. It was founded on July 14, 1971 in Berlin as an “anti-imperialist mass organization”. The model of the league was the league against colonial oppression founded in Germany in 1927, which was part of the league against imperialism and for national independence set up by Willi Münzenberg in 1925. Its organ, the magazine International Solidarity, dealt mostly with current issues within the “Maoist” left. After the league was dissolved in 1980, a number of members organized themselves into the Greens party. Among other things, the league dealt with post-Franco Spain There was also a marked dislike of US imperialism which had artificially kept the Franco dictatorship alive in order to be guaranteed trade profits. The Maoist League fought not only US imperialism and its representatives, but also Soviet social-imperialism. The League agitated against the USSR’s imperialist policy towards Third World countries.
This magazine once belonged to the Red Resistance Front’s archive (RVF). The Red Resistance Front existed from 1977 to 1988. Former members of the Red Youth (a communist group) and its affiliated Red Aid were active in the organisation. The RVF was an aid organization for the “armed resistance” in Western Europe, together with a large number of pamphlets mainly protesting against the detention situation of imprisoned members of the German Red Army Faction (RAF)
The RVF also conducted and coordinated actions against the European Parliament elections, which were held for the first time in 1979. The group saw it as part of a political structure that would give Germany and the United States too much power in Europe.
