Sydney Trades Hall, donor to Tolpuddle Martyrs Project

"Sydney Trades Hall was built by and for the trade unions of NSW. These unions had their beginnings at around the time the Tolpuddle Martyrs were transported. The agitation for democratic rights that was part of the release campaign carried on through the Chartist movement. Some of these Chartists came to the colony of NSW (as it then was) and were key organisers of the eight hour day movement. Many of the early trade unions in NSW were branches of British unions. Sydney Trades Hall is a repository for the memorabilia of that movement and the history of radical and labour movements in Australia, just as  the Marx Memorial Library is in the UK. Solidarity."

Wendy Butler, donor

"In a rapidly-changing world, where media moguls peddle mass misinformation to fox and befuddle the masses and 'airbrush out' people's history, the MML maintains the archive and 'the red thread' of workers' struggles for truth and justice down the centuries. The library is 'a weapon of the revolution' and I am proud to support its work" August 2016

Claire Weiss, Friend of the MML

"The work of the MML gathering, preserving and promoting the writings of Marx, his contemporaries and interpretations of them, continues to provide new generations with examples of theory and practice on which to make sense of current conditions, and helps to inspire them to work for revolutionary change", August 2016

David Ireland, donor

"I think MML is a unique resource for anyone doing Marx-related research, with a great ethos, history and staff", August 2016

Professor Susan Michie, donor

"Understanding how society has developed is key to understanding how best to progress to a more just and equal society.  The thinking and writing of Marx is as relevant to solving the world’s problems as ever.  I am delighted to support the Marx Memorial Library through a charity set up to memory of my mother, Anne McLaren, a lifelong Marxist." August 2016
