For the WIL's organization-wide reading for November and December 2014, we link here three articles on the founding of the First International. The Inaugural Address of the International Workingmen's Association by Karl Marx, The First International—150 Years On by Rob Sewell, 150 Years Since the First International was Founded—The Working Class Needs a Revolutionary International by Alan Woods. Though it may seem like ancient history to some, there is a wealth of lessons to be drawn from the experience of the First International which are very relevant to our work today.
