The Cuban anarchist movement, one of the most influential in the western hemisphere, was cosmopolitan and internationalist but also influential in the Cuban struggle for independence from Spain. Focusing on the writings of prominent figures of the movement, this chapter stresses the cultural impact of anarchist activism on the fledgling island-nation, in particular anarchists' efforts to appropriate the symbolism of José Martí's legacy for themselves. It also analyzes the anarchist role in promulgating alternative approaches to health, education, and gender roles.
