Anarchists and Alterity

The Expulsion of Casimiro Barrios from Chile, 1920

(p.281) 12 Anarchists and Alterity
In Defiance of Boundaries

Raymond Craib

University Press of Florida

Drawing from the case of a Spanish-born immigrant raised in Chile and deeply committed to working-class and social movements in his country, this chapter analyzes how alterity, or the emphasis on “essential” differences (such as “foreignness” or “placelessness”) were mobilized by nationalists and state actors to marginalize and justify the expulsion and persecution of labor activists on the left. It underscores the difficulty of categorizing individuals as belonging to a single ideological orthodoxy and reflects on the ways in which the intentionality of stigmatization by its enemies affected how anarchism was defined in Chile.
