Leaflet - Explaining the History of a Racist Nation, Socialist Alternative, Aug 2002 Document Reg. No: HT 1022

Leaflet with the slogan 'explaining the history of a racist nation' issued by the Socialist Alternative in August 2002 to advertise a meeting to be held on 28 August 2002. This leaflet illustrates the ongoing significance of the Tampa as a symbol of the refugee debate and its continuing resonance one year later.

The Socialist Alternative was established in July 1995 after a group of members were expelled from the International Socialist Organisation (ISO) following a lengthy debate about the orientation of the ISO to the political situation of the 1990s.
Single page leaflet with printed bold black text and a black and white image of the Tampa at sea and a smaller boat sailing towards it.
