Remembering John Maclean T-Shirt by 


This t-shirt pays homage to the great Scottish revolutionary socialist John Maclean (1879 – 1923). The design on the tee features my interpretation of an image from a Russian stamp commemorating the great man. Born in Pollokshaws, Glasgow, the former schoolteacher fought long and hard for the rights of the common man, ending up in prison for his beliefs. He was elected to the chair of the Third All-Russian Congress of Soviets in 1918 when he was made Bolshevik consul in Scotland. He founded the Scottish Workers Republican Party and supported Scottish independence. His health was broken in prison and he died aged 44. Loved by the people, over 20,000 lined the streets at his funeral.
