Republican Socialist Collective
The RSC formed the political arm of the Irish People's Liberation Organisation, a splinter group of the Irish National Liberation Army, under the leadership of Jimmy Brown. Ideologically the group endorsed a militant brand of revolutionary socialism.
Although the party did not take part in any elections it did organise a number of public meetings and debates in Belfast and Newry. It was disestablished in 1992 when the Provisional IRA eliminated the IPLO whilst Brown was killed by a rival faction within the IPLO.
The group also published a quarterly newspaper called the Socialist Republican.
