Islington Branch Report

Sunday, May 5th, the 89th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, proving a favourable opportunity, we opened our season by setting up our platform in the midst of a number of orators of all shades of opinion. In front was an open-air Sunday School; close by a Christian Evidence man denounced the Secularists, while adjacent a Secularist denounced the Christians. A Free-Trader disputed with a Protectionist whether the workers were better off under Liberal or Tory rule, and mystified the audience. Comrade Anderson pointed out the true inwardness of the situation to an attentive gathering, and finished amidst applause. We sold 70 STANDARDS, and had a good collection. Altogether a promising start. We hope, by the time this report appears, to have started our Wednesday night propaganda meetings at Highbury Corner.
