To address various problems and contradictions regarding LSM's practice, it is essential to situate them within the context of LSM theory and strategic objectives. The Bay Area LSM, an autonomous organization since August 1971, was recently dissolved. Most of its former members have now formed the LSM Bay Area Unit (LSM/BAU). The LSM Resource Center, staffed by the East Coast Unit (ECU), has visited a number of campuses and central locations in the New York area and set up booths at political events and the New York Book Fair. The ECU raised funds and arranged shipping to FRELIMO of 95,000 buttons bearing the slogan ESTUDAR-PRODUZIR-COMBATER. The newsletter mentions the Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP), Palestine, Yemen, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Oman and the Arab Gulf (PFLOAG), Iran, fascism, Canadian corporations, Alcan, Brascan, Massey-Ferguson, the Canadian Liberal Party, petty-bourgeois tendencies, audio-visual materials, the Giese-Cronin Defense Committee, Vermont, Vietnam, racism, Guinea-Bissau: Toward Final Victory, Ben Turok, Strategic Problems in South Africa’s Liberation struggle, Europe, North America, Japan, western workers, revolutionary movements, class-based ideology, ethnocentrism, bourgeois nationalism, the Third World, and socialist development. LSM translates and distributes these liberation movement bulletins: Angola in Arms, Mozambique Revolution, Namibia News, PAIGC Actualities, and Zimbabwe Review.
