This chapter examines the role of the Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.), a global, transnational revolutionary movement born in Chicago and present throughout Latin America, and particularly of its press in advancing anarchist and syndicalist agendas throughout the hemisphere. In addition to industry-based unions such as the Marine Transport Workers Union in the United States, the I.W.W. directed its activities to immigrants, blacks, Chinese, rural and unskilled workers, and developed strong movements along the northern Mexican borderlands, in Chile, and was present in port cities in Puerto Rico, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.
