  • Description

    THE AGE-OLD IMAGE OF THE ANARCHIST AS A MAN WITH A TIME-BOMB IN HIS HAND TOOK A KNOCK WHEN THE INTERNATIONAL ANARCHISTS CONGRESS GATHERED IN CARRARA, ITALY FOR A MEETING AT THE WEEKEND.

    AMONG THE DELEGATES TO THE CONGRESS WAS DANIEL COHN-BENDIT, THE LEADER OF THE RECENT PARIS STUDENT UPRISING. OTHER DELEGATES CAME FROM VARIOUS EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND JAPAN HAD TWO REPRESENTATIVES.

    DESPITE THEIR WILD AND WOOLLY REPUTATION MOST OF THE ANARCHISTS TURNED OUT TO BE MILD MANNERED MEN WHO TRIED TO FURTHER THEIR CAUSE BY ARGUMENT AND REASON. THERE WAS NOT A BOMB IN SIGHT.

    BUT THERE WAS ONE TRADITIONAL TOUCH. SEVERAL OF THE DELEGATES TURNED UP IN LONG BLACK CLOAKS -- BUT THEY WERE OUTNUMBERED BY THE DELEGATES WEARING SOBER LOUNGE SUITS.
