This chapter continues examining the relationships between anarchists and their sometime-allies, sometime-antagonists in the emerging Partido Socialista (PS) in the 1910s. Here, the chapter considers the agitations arising from the radical bloc in the city of Bayamón. The Bayamón anarchists continued their agitation throughout the 1910s, sometimes working with Socialists but also becoming less conciliatory and more rigid in their quest for an anarchist social revolution. By 1918, anarchists centered in the city took an increasingly hard line against all aspects of the PS—especially concerning the relevance of electoral politics for the future of Puerto Rican workers, the appropriate responses to militarism, and the new military draft for the Great War that some PS leaders such as the elected Socialist senator Santiago Iglesias supported.
