Writing Revolution

Correspondents played a vital role in the Spanish anarchist press. They helped to build a global libertarian community; three specific cases narrated in this chapter describe how a nucleus of Spanish-speaking anarchist readers developed in North America. The correspondents’ work made possible, in large part, the connection between local hubs and other communities of libertarian readers in distant places. Such links describe the emergence of a powerful transnational “print culture” that gradually incorporated the United States (as a political, economic, and cultural space) in the ideological panorama of Ibero-American Spanish-speaking anarchism. In this sense, the image of the United States, as a symbolic reference for exploitation, found a fertile ground in the transnational Spanish-language anarchist print network beginning at the end of the nineteenth century.
