Grupo Cultural de Estudios Sociales de Melbourne

The Grupo Cultural de Estudios Sociales de Melbourne and Acracia Publications are a group in Melbourne, comprised largely of the children of the Spanish anarchist refugees who settled in Australia after the crushing of the Spanish revolution. In the last couple of years they have embarked on a project to translate and share material from their archives, and to stimulate some debate amongst anarchism in Australia today.

For your enjoyment, here are some of their recent publications.
