Announcing a researching project into Bolshevik repression of Anarchists.
We are researching Bolshevik repression of anarchists after 1917 (anarchists covers anarchist-communists, anarcho-syndicalists, individualists, universalists and Makhnovists, but not Tolstoyans). Repression includes executions and open combat like the raids on the Black Guards, but we’re most interested in anarchists in prison and exile (we’re also interested in foreign - Italian, Spanish, Polish - anarchists). We’re interested in biographies of imprisoned anarchists. These can cover their anarchist activities before, during and after 1917, not just their prison years. We would expect this project to also shed some light on solidarity work for the imprisoned anarchists, both from within the Soviet Union and from abroad. This foreign solidarity work has given us important material like “Letters from Russian Prisons”, “The Guillotine at Work” and the Bulletins of the Joint Committee for the defense of revolutionists imprisoned in Russia and Relief fund of the International Working Men’s Association for anarchists and anarcho-syndicalists imprisoned or exiled in Russia.
Short articles can be published in the Kate Sharpley Library Bulletin (quarterly, six pages). Longer texts could be posted on the Kate Sharpley Library website: www.katesharpleylibrary.net. Alternatively, we could create a blog for the project and post texts there. Ultimately we hope to publish a pamphlet (biographies of executed, imprisoned and exiled anarchists). Please contact us if you’re interested in assisting with the Anarchists in the GULAG project.
