About Anarchist Revolutionary Movement (ARM)

The anarchist movement in South Africa only reemerged in the early 1990s with the establishment of small anarchist collectives in Durban and Johannesburg. The Anarchist Revolutionary Movement (ARM) was founded in 1993. It was succeeded by the more tightly organized Workers' Solidarity Federation (WSF) in 1995.

These two books co-produced Zabalaza: A Journal of Southern African Revolutionary Anarchism and were active in the Anti-Privatization Forum.
