Southern African Anarchist & Syndicalist History Archive

The SAASHA site is focused primarily on collecting primary documents, source materials and publications related to the anarchist and syndicalist movement in Southern Africa.

This movement emerged from the 1880s in the Cape Colony, and grew rapidly from the early twentieth century. Its key impact was in South Africa, but it had some influence in Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Decline from the mid-1920s was marked, although not total.

The 1990s, as elsewhere, saw an important revival in South Africa, with subsequent connections in Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. We reserve the right to select which materials and comments appear on this site.
