What is the U.S. Friends of the Soviet People? From the name it sounds old.

We had a discussion earlier here about the Canadian branch: viewtopic.php?f=128&t=46299

They are "old" in the sense that they date back from the original Hands Off Russia committees of 1919. One of their main focuses today is anti-imperialism, they also do Russian cultural projects such as the effort to preserve Soviet films, and they support the restoration of socialism in the USSR and Eastern Europe.

Wow, that's got to date back to the times of the old John Reed CPUSA. Glad to see a few old comrades are still around (in org terms, I don't mean literally)! I wonder if this was one of the original "Correspondence Commitees"?

Keeran and Kenny, the speakers on Sat, represent the pro-Soviet leftwing of the CPUSA. I'm not sure of the accuracy, but I read a rumor on a blog that Keeran and Kenny had trouble with the CP National Board.
