Archive of issues of Resistance, an anarchist publication produced out of New York from 1947-1954.
In 1947, Why? changed its title to Resistance. Running until 1954, Resistance was commonly seen as an anarcho-pacifist publication and included contributers such as Paul Goodman, George Woodcock, David Thoreau Wieck, Melvin Grieg and David Dellinger, among many others. The publication was associated with anti-conscription efforts and spoke harshly against segregation and racism in the United States at the time. The anarchism conceived of by Resistance proved influencial on Colin Ward, Freedom newspaper, the French anarchist newspaper Noir et Rouge and the Italian Volontá. After going defunct in 1954, a number of the Resistance group went on to be involved in the magazine, Liberation.
