http://saasha.net/

The online Southern African Anarchist and Syndicalist History Archive (SAASHA) site is focused on collecting primary documents, source materials and publications related to the anarchist and syndicalist movement in southern Africa.

It is building a digital archive of written materials and images from the anarchist and revolutionary syndicalist organisations from the 1880s to the present.

It also collects analyses and studies of the anarchist and syndicalist current in southern Africa.

This movement emerged from the 1880s in the Cape Colony, and grew rapidly from the early twentieth century. Its key impact was in South Africa, but it had some influence in Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Decline from the mid-1920s was marked, although not total. The 1990s, as elsewhere, saw an important revival in South Africa, with subsequent connections in Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

At present there are around 200 posts, and we have substantial amounts of additional materials to scan and post.

We are always looking for new materials: we do not have everything.

Please contact us at http://saasha.net/contact/ if you have any material by, about or relating to southern African anarchism and syndicalism. If you can send us a PDF it will be greatly appreciated; alternatively, if we can borrow what you have, we will scan and return it.

We reserve the right to select which materials and comments appear on this site.
