Fyson in USA

George Fyson, a member of the Socialist Club and editor of Red Spark, the Club's magazine, recently spent a month in the United States at the invitation of the Young Socialist Alliance.

The Alliance, a New York-based organisation, paid George's travel, accomodation and other expenses on the trip. George acted as New Zealand observer at the Annual Convention of the Alliance, held in Minneapolis, Minnesota from 27-30 December. He delivered a message of greetings to the Convention from Wellington's Socialist Action League and also participated in a workshop on the subject of the Fourth International.

Following the close of the Convention, George travelled to New York where he had discussions at the National Headquarters of the Socialist Workers Party and attended, as an observer, a meeting of the National Executive of the Young Socialist Alliance. He also visited the editorial offices of The International Press and The Militant while in New York.

Throughout his visit, George was accompanied by the Australian observer at the Convention.
