Rebel Worker, selected back issues

Uploaded as part of the Anarchism in Australia project.

Rebel Worker started life as the paper of the Australian I.W.W., before becoming the paper of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation (ASF) upon the formation of that organisation in 1986, and eventually the paper of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Network (ASN) after a split in the ASF (approximately 1995?).

From 1982 to today, Rebel Worker has been edited, published and primarily written by Mark McGuire.

Selected Back Issues

Note, the Volume and Issue numbers don’t always make sense. Details in file names reflect the details in the mastheads, but there appear to be typos, repeats, and so on.

This collection of back issues reflects what I was able to obtain from the Rebel Worker website and, and appears reasonably complete for the past ten years or so. I am interested in obtaining copies of older back issues that might still exist, especially any that relate to the 1990 tramways dispute.

HTML text copies of the May, June, and July 1996 issues of Rebel Worker and the August-September 1998 issue of Rebel Worker, on the former Rebel Worker Geocities website, an archive of which can be retrieved here.

A PDF scan of Rebel Worker, issue 157, Feb-March 1999, is available at Reason in Revolt.
