Freedom, London, Vol I. No. 1 October 1886. The first editor was Charlotte M. Wilson 1886-1895, assisted by a group of friends of Peter Kropotkin : Dr. Merlino, the Hydes. George Bernard Shaw, Max Nettlau and Kropotkin. The paper was printed by the Socialist League Printing Office (Farrington Road) thanks to the graceful authorization of William Morris and the Freethought Publishing group, who rented at a very low cost a business room on 34, Bowerie St.

However, after the Haymarket events in Chicago (1886-1887), Charles Bradlaugh, in charge of the Freethinkers group, did not want to have any more relations with the anarchists. Furthermore, the room was occupied by Annie Besant’s The Link. The anarchist writers emigrated to the The Socialist, Cursitor St. until that journal disappeared in 1888.

The successive editors were Alfred Marsh 1895-1912. Thomas H. Keel 1912-1932. Freedom was succeeded by Spain and the World 1936-1938, edited by Vernon Richards. It changed its name to Revolt in 1939 and was continued as War Commentary,.
