10 February 1999
In response to the report in Workers Vanguard No. 706 (5 February
1999) of a violent assault on Spartacist League/Britain comrade Eibhlin
McDonald at a January 30 demonstration in London – in which in front of
many other demonstrators Ian Donovan of Revolution & Truth struck
McDonald in the face, causing a gash over her eye which required medical
attention – the League for the Fourth International denounces this
vile assault and all such use of violence against political opponents in
the workers movement.
We condemn Ian Donovan’s gangsterist attack on Eibhlin McDonald at the march commemorating the 1972 Bloody Sunday massacre; and we uphold the need for vigorous defense of workers democracy.
