  2. http://www.spartacist.org/english/wh/240/notice.html

    In 2017, the Spartacist League/Britain has produced three rather than four issues of Workers Hammer. This was due to the intense political struggle that took place in the International Communist League to reassert a Leninist approach to the fight against national oppression, and to correct the SL/B’s opportunist trajectory towards the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn. This struggle is documented in “The Fight for Leninism on the National Question”, Spartacist (English-language edition) no 65, Summer 2017. All subscribers will still receive four issues of Workers Hammer.
