Phyllis Jacobson died on 2 March, aged 87, after a protracted illness. She was a veteran of the socialist and Trotskyist movement in the US. Together with her husband Julius Jacobson she was a member of the Workers’ Party (later the Independent Socialist League). Later in life she helped produce the New Politics journal (both the first series which ended production in 1976, and when it was revived ten years later).
Tributes will shortly appear on the New Politics website: newpolitics.mayfirst.org
