DOCUMENTARY - Persons Unknown Trial and Crass Anarcho-punk Band Footage

Crass anarcho-punk band with Steve Ignorant and Penny Rimbaud

Welcome back to the Penny Post, a libertarian journal founded in 1968 covering politics, economics and current events. The Penny Post covers mainly Anarchist and Libertarian themes. 


Our Youtube channel features plenty of free, non-profit original content, but also some of our favourite libertarian films, audio and documentaries. Hit that SUBSCRIBE button now!

This week we are uploading a fascinating short documentary, about 1970s-1980s anarchist movements in Britain. After authorities had began politically targeting anarchist groups such as the Angry Brigade in the early 1970s, the decade then saw massive state investment of human and financial resources in a bid to effectively wipe out any groups politically opposed to statism. The ongoing authority - anti-authoritarian conflict culminated with the notorious 'Persons Unknown' trial. Find out how it finished, we won't spoil the ending!


The documentary also features some superb footage of anarcho-punk band Crass in action, around 1980 and we get an insight into the life of ace Scottish anarchist Stuart Christie, a colourful character who has done some major work disseminating anarchist ideas and works.

Students of the English language will love this: the World's only Anarchist language course!

Even if you already speak the language, come and support us as we take on the corporate and statist giants.

Language is, of course, humanity's greatist anarchist invention. It's made by the people, decentralised, democratic and non-authoritarian.

Help us take it back from the state and put libertarian education back on the map. We need your clicks, likes, shares and comments :)
