Digital reprints of AW

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

Aside from The Platform, do any of the ORA and AWA materials exist on-line?

Thanx.

Have you seen this?

Where We Go From Here by R. Williams (Anarchist Workers Association - UK)
[from 'Libertarian Struggle' July/Aug 1975]
http://nefac.net/node/834
It was posted to a-infos in Nov 2003:

The article says that various AWA/ORA material was given to NEFAC by the WSA from their archive.

Yes, seen it. I was the one who passed it on to NEFAC (along with other stuff).All of our archives are in paper form, some it it getting fragile, so... I was hoping someone has started to put the ORA & AWA stuff on-line/

I gather nothing else has been put on the web as of yet?

No. I have a good collection of ORA/AWA/LCG publications so if anybody wants to get them put on line, contact me

Someone in NEFAC or AF should probably scan them in then, as least as page images. Older back issues of Organise! and a couple more pamphlets are already in the pipeline for putting on the AF website. After that we could perhaps get on to this stuff ourselves.

BTW have you seen the Subversion, Wildcat and Solidarity archives on AF-north? If not you can link from here: Wildcat
Subversion
Solidarity

Were you looking for something in particular?

Naw, nothing in particular, but things in general.

I actually think it'd be great if the ORA/AWA stuff went on-line. Same with stuff rom the SWF and early DAM. Here in the US/Canada same with our stuff and other anarchist stuff from the 1960s-1980s. I think there's a wealth of information, event coverage, historical context and perspectives that succeding generation(s) of anarchist and syndicalist activists should have available. Comrades will probably see that many of their trial and tribulations have been experianced by previous generations. And to see how previous generations have learned from prior generations---or took further steps forward (or backwards) from those before us. Or simply to make this information as widely known as possible.

Or didn't learn from previous generations and made the same mistakes, as the case may be
