The month of May is arguably the best month of the year. Especially in Montreal, when it’s the Festival of Anarchy! The Festival of Anarchy is a month of anarchist actions, film screenings, workshops, and concerts, all centred around the annual Montreal Anarchist Bookfair – one of the largest anarchist convergences on the continent.
In anticipation and celebration of the bookfair, we bring you 2 hours of anarchist rebel music on this podcast of The Rebel Beat, featuring songs spanning different decades, continents, and genres. Hope you enjoy!
Ps. – If you’re not so familiar with anarchism as a political movement or ideology, check out this awesome video primer by our friends at Submedia and Crimethinc!
