From The Libertarian Labyrinth

In 1926, “Los Iconoclastas” of Steubenville, Ohio conducted an international survey of anarchists, who were asked to provide answers to eight questions related to the present state and future prospects of the anarchist movement. Then in 1828, Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman circulated a similar survey, in preparation for a gathering of prominent anarchists that, ultimately, did not take place. This was, of course, also the period during which the first section of the Encyclopédie Anarchiste (1925–1934)—which shared some elements with the surveys, with its multiple entries on many subjects—was produced.

We discuss some of the organizational needs of the current age, as well as what groups that exist now are already doing to put these ideas into practice.

This new zine published in Kingston, Ontario discusses both the challenges and advantages of being an anarchist in smaller places. The first two pieces are reflections on workshops facilitated by the authors on these questions in North Carolina and Virginia. The third piece is a From Embers interview with Christine from Prince Edward County on rural organizing. The last piece is a report-back on Kingston's 2018 May Day.
