Towards a Citizens' Militia: Anarchist Alternatives to NATO and the Warsaw Pact

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.

It can be bought at AKPress or Amazon if a hard-copy should be required.

In hosting the pamphlet, please note that we are not agreeing with it or advocating that insurrectionary violence be used in the here and now (at least not without a very strong and pervasive social revolutionary movement backing it up anyway). It is best read in conjunction with You Can't Blow up a Social Relationship.
