The Red Republican
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (May 2012)|
The paper was founded in 1850 by George Julian Harney, after he was forced to resign from editing the The Northern Star by its owner, Feargus O'Connor, who disagreed with his socialism.
Harney tried to use the paper to educate the working classes about socialism and proletarian internationalism, and advocated socialism within the trade union movement. The Red Republican published the first English translation of the Communist Manifesto in 1850, but was not a financial success and closed down in December of the same year.
