Red Florida in the Caribbean Red

Hispanic Anarchist Transnational Networks and Radical Politics, 1880s–1920s

(p.67) Chapter 4 Red Florida in the Caribbean Red
Writing Revolution

Kirwin R. Shaffer

University of Illinois Press

This chapter shows how anarchists in Florida played important roles in the Caribbean, the Cuban War for Independence in the 1890s, the early years of anarchist organization in Cuba after the U.S. occupation had ended in 1902, and labor conflicts impacting the regional tobacco industry. Florida has to be seen beyond its geopolitical confines of a U.S. state and rather as part of a transnational network linked to anarchist political and labor struggles in Cuba and Puerto Rico. As a result, the chapter emphasizes the transnational dimensions of Hispanic anarchism in the Caribbean, especially the movement of people, and the role of anarchist media in transferring money and ideas across the Florida Straits.
