The 11th Belfast Anarchist Bookfair is happening on the 3rd November in Catalyst Arts, Belfast.

12.30 Scattered Internationalists: Irish Anarchism Between the Wars. Morris Brodie.
After the defeat of the anti-Treaty forces in the Irish Civil War, the island of Ireland became a hostile environment for left-wing radicals. Red Scares in the North and the South meant establishing a cohesive movement became increasingly difficult. Irish anarchists sought to overcome this by finding new places to organise, often moving to Britain or the United States in search of work. In the process they helped to build the anarchist movement in their adopted homelands. This talk examines the activities of Irish anarchists outside of Ireland in the interwar period, including Jack White, Pat Read and Mat Kavanagh, and shows how they contributed to antifascism, labour struggles and revolutionary politics, culminating in their support for their anarchist comrades during the Spanish Civil War.
