Re: French-speaking Africa, as well as the like parts of the Caribbean and the Pacific, I don't think there are really significant links to speak of between Québec, and probably not France either. I might be wrong. I think this speaks again to the problem that, in some places, there simply are not anarchists (in the sense of anarchist tradition, not necessarily anarchic direction).

I mean, it's the same thing with the anglo-leaning parts of Africa, the Caribbean, Melanesia, and Micronesia. If people know about anarchist projects or anarchist scenes (not isolated bloggers, academics, etc.) in those areas, I would be happy to hear that, but it makes me think that anarchism isn't appealing to people in these places. It's not as if these folks aren't on the internet too, and just as capable of, hell, using Wikipedia.

I would be curious to know, though how many members of English-speaking /r/anarchism (possibly the biggest "online community" of anarchists) includes folks from those regions, or other regions from whence I have heard of no anarchists: India, Thailand, Central Asia, and a few other parts of Africa besides.
