Klassekampen, the newspaper of the Norwegian Workers Communist Party (M-L), has begun dairy publication. The paper, which was published weekly since 1974, has a readership of about 20,000 in a country whose total population is less than four million.
The publication of the dairy represents the successful conclusion of a powerful mass campaign. Recently, more than $800,000 was raised among the workers in order to purchase the printing facilities necessary for the party to operate independently front the bourgeois publishing houses. A broad network of worker correspondents has been developed around Klassekampen, and its subscription drives in the factories have been highly successful.
Klassekampen, which now appears in an eight-page daily edition, has far out-distanced the revisionist newspapers as well as many bourgeois publications in its popularity among the masses.
Klassekampen also publishes a foreign language supplement in the six languages spoken by immigrant workers in Norway and a separate edition in the Lapp language. Lapland is an oppressed nation in Norway.
Initially, the daily was scheduled to be launched on May 1. But all the conditions necessary for this historic advance were met early and, as a result, daily publication began in April.
The Norwegian people now have a revolutionary daily newspaper which points the way forward in the struggle against the Norwegian ruling class and the two superpowers.
