This chapter focuses on the activities conducted by the Italian anarchists in London during the 1890s, including meetings, conferences and demonstrations. It examines the ideological differences between two main groups of anarchists: organisationalists, who considered the individual to be a product of society, and anti-organisationalists, who insisted that society was a union of self-governed individuals who might or might not associate with one another, depending on the potential benefits expected, and that human beings are naturally inclined towards anarchy. The chapter also looks at L’Associazione, a newspaper founded by Errico Malatesta, and its eventual closure. Finally, it considers the concern of authorities back in Italy about the danger posed by the anarchists in London.
