Brazilian Anarchism in Rio Grande do Sul, 1890s–1940s

In Defiance of Boundaries

As a counterpoint to the better-known cases of São Paolo and Rio de Janeiro, this chapter proposes a regional study of the anarchist movement in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, which inherited strong libertarian traditions from nineteenth-century utopian experiments and the cross-border influence of workers from Uruguay and Argentina. The chapter argues that after developing a strong presence in the organized labor movement, anarchists in this region survived by embracing cultural and educational activism on a broad range of social issues, in a context of relative political tolerance and migration of exiles from other countries of the southern cone.
