When the Bolsheviks usurped the Russian Revolution, it was a disaster for anti-capitalist movements everywhere. This book traces a timeline of the Bolshevik crackdown on revolutionary currents in Russia and elsewhere around the world, starting before the October Revolution and running up to the treaty between Stalin and Hitler. It includes a treasury of quotations from some of the anarchists who helped make the revolution only to perish under the heel of authoritarians.

During the weekend of June 22-24, Asheville, North Carolina will host the second annual Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfair (ACAB). Last year, hundreds of people from the southeast and beyond participated in workshops, talks, panels, community building, skill sharing, and celebrating resistance. Dozens of presses, publishers, radical and anarchist groups displayed their books, zines, artwork, and promoted their projects. This year will be even better, as we continue to build sites of resistance, structures of counterpower, and networks of solidarity across the region and the world.

When they poured across the border
I was cautioned to surrender,
this I could not do;
I took my gun and vanished.

through the graves the wind is blowing,
freedom soon will come;
then we’ll come from the shadows.
