Praise from across Scotland

Following the war Dundee’s war resisters and COs came in for special praise from across Scotland. Even before hostilities had ceased the ILP reported that the city’s war resisters and objectors had ‘steadfastly and fearlessly fought for liberty and Socialism’ and thus ‘had its sons in every prison and penal centre set apart for conscientious objectors to militarism.’ In the great inevitable political uprising … destined to place Labour permanently in power the working class of Dundee will demand a foremost a place.’
