Description

Anarchism was the driving force behind Cuba’s revolutionary and labor movements from their dawn until well into the 20th century. Anarchists bore primary responsibility for organizing workers in Cuba’s most important industries, tobacco and sugar. At the height of their influence in the 1920s, Cuba’s anarchists controlled the Cuban union movement, provided free nonreligious schools forthe poor children, provided meeting places for Cuba’s working class, organized campesinos into unions and agricultural collectives, and published newspapers and magazines across the island. Later, they would take an active part in re resistance to the Machado, Batista and Castro dictatorships. This book presents their inspiring story. Translated by Chaz Bufe.
