"Anarchy at Work: Contemporary Anarchism and Unions"

by Shantz, Jeffrey (2009)


Few social movements in North America have enjoyed as much of a revival in the twenty‐first century as anarchism. In the years prior to the Seattle World Trade Organization (WTO) protests of 1999, and especially following the success of those demonstrations, anarchism has reemerged as a vibrant political force. Yet, little attention has been given to ongoing organizing practices undertaken by anarchists as part of struggles in communities and workplaces. The lack of informed analysis of anarchist politics has meant that the actual practices and intentions of this major, and growing, contemporary movement remain obscured.
