News and events

News and events from The Sparrows' Nest.

We are delighted to announce the return of Rosemary to the Nest, updating us on her fascinating research project.

Having recently worked with various materials related to the 50th Anniversary of the 1968 Revolts, we were reminded that the pamphlet series published by Solidarity over many years deserves some more time in the spotlight. Volume 31, published in late 1969, reprinting a report on a strike at the General Motors works in Flint, Michigan. The author had been a Maoist, but Solidarity republished a slightly abbridged version of the original report as it was such an excellent account of the events.

Please find below a - this time rather eclectic - list of new additions to our Digital Library. We want to thank local artist John N, as well as a friendly and well equiped fellow archivist and a few other contributors for supplying us with digital copies of fine source materials or helping us digitising oversized materials.

Welcome back to our Document of the Month feature, showcasing some of the awesome documents in our collections.

Many thanks to Jim Donaghey who visited us to talk about the Nest, its role in the local community, and the importance of documenting and sharing the history of anarchist movements. You can stream the audio interview directly from the AnarchistStudies.Blog.
