Staying Red: Norman Harding's life in the Trotskyist movementStaying Red: why I remain a socialist

Norman Harding

Norman Harding explains his evolution as a Trotskyist, standing up for socialism against the betrayals of Stalinism. In 1985 he had no hesitation in standing against corruption and abuse in the heart of the party to which he had given the best years of his life. His account is the only one written by a participant in the explosion that expelled Party leader Gerry Healy from the Workers Revolutionary Party. What little there is on the internet and elsewhere in print is inaccurate and fails to grasp both what the party achieved and how its members dealt with the corruption.
