Morning Star[

Morning Star

Printed by the People’s Press Printing Society, a co-operative in which the Trades Council holds shares, The Morning Star is published six days per week. Established in 1930 as the Daily Worker it was originally the voice of the Communist Party of Great Britain. Known as the "miracle of Fleet Street" it survived wholesalers’ boycotts, police intervention, libel action and outright suppression. It became a co-operatively-owned newspaper in 1945 and changed its name to Morning Star in 1966. The newspaper provides a wealth of trade union information and matters of political interest and continues to advocate socialist views. It is, in our opinion, indispensable for trade union activists and campaigners.
