There was in Ireland an Althusserian group circa 1975-1985 called
"Revolutionary Struggle". It was a weird group of obscure Algerian origins
and was lead by a Greek guy (I think). One of its leading members was
Ursuala Barry (the niece of Irish foreign minister Peter Barry -who was
involved in the Anglo-Irish agreement). The group came to the attention of
the wider public when during the 1981 hunger strikes, the kneecaped a
Business studies lecturer in Trinity College Dublin. (the episode is told in
"Ten Men Dead", by D. Berresford).
RS published a journal called "The Ripening of Time", which ws quite good
and had a significant international audience. (some in the list may remember
it). They had articles from the likes of Poulantzas, Gunder Frank, G.
Gilmore, etc. Would anyone know if some of RS are still around
