September, 1982

Dear Call subscriber,

We regret to announce that the Call newspaper has been forced to suspend publication permanently. The political network of reporters and contributors, as well as the economic resources necessary to put out the Call have both dwindled in past years.

All of us who have been connected with the Call are confronted with the task of reviewing “what has happened” in the new communist movement over the past decade. The demise of the Call (and the CPML) indicates that many tough problems for building a socialist movement here in the U.S. still remain to be solved. We remain confident that they will be solved.

The League of Revolutionary Struggle (M-L) (LRS) has volunteered to fulfill all Call subscriptions with their newspaper, UNITY, free of charge. Since we feel an obligation to Call subscribers, and since UNITY is the only national M-L newspaper with views similar to those of the Call, we have gratefully accepted this offer. UNITY is published bi-weekly and you will receive it beginning in October for three months, at which time you can renew as a regular subscriber if you wish. UNITY comes enclosed in an envelope.

If you do not want to get UNITY, promptly fill out the form at the bottom of the page and return it. No copies will be sent and your name will not remain on their files.

Our acceptance of UNITY’s offer does not imply a blanket endorsement of all its views, but we do think you will find its reporting of national and international struggles helpful in keeping you informed.

We thank all of you for your past support and hope to be working with many of you in the future.

In struggle,
Boston, New York, and Chicago former Call activists
