The Funeral, Wake and a celebration of the life of Albert Meltzer (24 May 1996)

Albert Meltzer - Anarcho-syndicalist (1920-1996)

Albert Meltzer (1920-1996) was one of the most enduring and respected torchbearers of the international anarchist movement in the second half of the twentieth century. His sixty-year commitment to the vision and practice of anarchism survived both the collapse of the Revolution and Civil War in Spain and the Second World War; he helped fuel the libertarian impetus of the 1960s and 1970s and steer it through the reactionary challenges of the Thatcherite 1980s and post-Cold War 1990s
