Also includes a photocopy of a Sidney Peck report. "Notes on closed NMC 'steering committee' meeting" is a report by a participant at the meeting "phoned in to 2170 Bryant Street" in San Francisco; discusses efforts by Kayo [Terence] Hallinan to limit Trotskyist involvement in the NMC because "they can't get along with anyone." Other minutes from fraction meetings reflect Trotskyist organizing within the broader coalition.
