"The Free Voice of Labor: The Jewish Anarchists" traces the history of a Yiddish anarchist newspaper publishing its final issue after 87 years. Narrated by anarchist historian Paul Avrich, the story is mostly told by the newspaper's now elderly, but decidedly unbowed staff. It's the story of one of the largest radical movements among Jewish immigrant workers in the 19th and 20th centuries, the conditions that led them to band together, their fight to build trade unions, their huge differences with the communists, their attitudes towards violence, Yiddish culture, and their loyalty to one another.

55 minues. Directed by Steven Fischler and Joel Sucher. Followed by live klezmer music.
