is deeply problematic and even offfensive. However, I think we need to clearly reason it out not just say we wpon't touch the AWL with a barge pole.
That evades the issue.
Also we should engage in united front work and socialist discussion with all sorts of groups and individuals within them. It may well be that many in the AWL can be won from oppressive positions.
As importantly we need to show a wider workers' movement- one we should be trying to create alongside AWL comrades among others- that it is posible to have discussions amidst and alongside wider struggles.
So I don;'t quite agree with your method here, Bill, though I'm sure you can live with that!
