Anarchist Black Cross

The Anarchist Black Cross is an anarchist political organization, first started in Russia as the Anarchist Red Cross, a support organization for political prisoners. During the Russian Civil War (1918-20), the group's name was changed, so as to avoid confusion with the Red Cross. The Black Cross declined in influence during the Great Depression; however, during the 1960s, it was reformed in Great Britain and, during the 1980s, expanded into North America. The group is notable for its efforts at providing prisoners with political literature.
