Carlo Tresca: Portrait of a Rebel

Carlo Tresca is one of those rebel workers whose memory deserves to be honoured and Pernicone's excellent biography does just that. Pernicone's has previously produced an excellent history of the Italian anarchist movement ("Italian Anarchism: 1864-1892", Princeton University Press, 1993) and this work is of equal quality and of interest to anarchists. He obviously understands anarchism and writes with sympathy and knowledge about it. Such historians are rare.

An account of the first anarchist-feminist group in Argentina in the 1890s.

The Zapatista Intercontinental Gathering for Humanity and Against neo-liberalism

Tacho and AK47In the late summer of 1996 I was one of the two Irish delegates to the 3,000 strong international meeting held in the rebel areas of Chiapas Mexico.  The experience of getting to the meeting through miles of jungle and military checkpoints was an experience in itself but the meetings themselves were an extraordinary thing to find oneself at.  For me it was a transformative experience both personally and politically, one of those points at which 'two roads diverge in a wood'.

Appendix: James Donald and Noam Chomsky

This article has been added as an appendix to James' nonsense on Spain in order to get a better grasp of his technique and to better judge the reliability of his attacks on Spanish anarchism. For, as well as wilfully distorting the history of Spain and the activities of Spanish Anarchists, it should be noted that James Donald has done the same to Noam Chomsky.

Labor Incentives in Catalonia

Labor Incentives in Catalonia

Here we see James Donald trying to prove that the self-managed collectives created in Catalonia were "really" like "actually existing socialism."

Of course, this may prove to be difficult for James. After all, there are plenty of examples of how democratic the collectives were, but we will say this for him, he tries.

Bait and Switch in Catalonia?

Bait and Switch in Catalonia?

James Donald states that "Some of the 'anarchists' justified their exceedingly unanarchist conduct by convoluted rationalizations. Others spoke more plainly. Macario Royo regarded libertarianism as a mere ruse, to disguise the true nature of socialist revolution," i.e. "totalitarian," according to Donald.
