Between the 1880s and the beginning on the 1st world war, poor and working class Jews in north america were highly involved with class struggles as anarchists and socialists. In this episode of radio613, we share with you the sounds from the short documentary Free Voice of Labour: The Jewish Anarchists.

The film was made in 1980 and features interviews with over a dozen Jewish anarchists.
