Topics: Demonstrations for gun control in Boston and Springfield at the Smith and Wesson factory; Historical radicalism in New England and what old-school anarchist labor organizing might teach us today. People:Bill, Nate. Produced: Mar 24th, 2018.
Pre-release clarification: The IWW was established in 1905. Late 19th century efforts along similar lines were of course not IWW, but undertaken by other organizers. I can’t remember if I muddled it a bit while speaking off the cuff. -Bill
