Mob Work: Anarchists in Grand Rapids, Vol. 2

Mob Work: Anarchists in Grand Rapids, Volume 2 covers a number of different topics pertaining to anarchist activity in Grand Rapids in the early 1900s. We look at the Dutch anarchism of Hendrik Meijer (yes, of groccery store fame) who brought the ideas of Dutch anarchist Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis to West Michigan, recount Emma Goldman’s several visits to Grand Rapids, tell the story of the solider-turned-anarchist William Buwalda, and explore the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and their activity in Grand Rapids in the 1910s, including their role in the famous Furniture Strike of 1911. As with the first volume in the series, the majority of these topics have gone unexplored elsewhere and the zine draws from a wide range of sources.
