Anarchy magazine No 6 - published 1970


Anarchy Magazine was an anarchist magazine published in London from the 1960s. It was originally published by Colin Ward. A second series was published in the 1970s and 1980s from London. Issue No 6 published in 1970 was largely given over to articles written by members of People's Democracy. The PDF file linked to here is a scan of that issue, we have also transcribed some of the articles.

We'd ask anyone who downloads the PDF to transcribe another of the articles from this issue and email it to us, that way we'd hope to get them all online.  Use the contact form at the top of the page to send it

James Connolly, Irish Syndicalist
