Admin history
  • Dani Ahrens joined the International Group in 1985. The International Group split from the Socialist League in the same year. The Socialist League was a direct descendent of the International Marxist Group. In May 1987, the International Group amalgamated with the Socialist Group (SG) to form the International Socialist Group (ISG). The origins of SG were in the Workers' Revolutionary Party and Socialist Organiser. Both the Socialist League and the International Group (and subsequently the ISG) remained part of the United Secretariat of the Fourth International. The Journal Group was an internal codename for the International Group. Dani Ahrens moved to Brighton in 1987, where she continued her activism.
