A semi-legendary anarchist how-to guide to irregular warfare. Written in the early 1980s by the International Revolutionary Solidarity Movement (First of May Group), Towards A Citizens' Militia details the principles of libertarian armed resistance, organization, and the conduct of guerilla warfare (from train traps to attacking a power system) and the organization and operation of the civilian resistance movement.
The late veteran Glasgow anarchist JT Caldwell tells the story of a struggle to defend the right of open air speaking on Glasgow Green during the early 1930s. As well as legal conflicts, the events included rowdy mass demonstrations of up to one hundred thousand people.
