This chapter examines the impact of the outbreak of World Word I on the anarchist movement in London. In particular, it looks at how the war divided the anarchists between interventionists and anti-interventionists, and the eventual disintegration of the network of international solidarity that used to be the core of the experience of political exile. It also considers the debate between Petr Kropotkin and Errico Malatesta about the war and the issue of militarism. In addition, the chapter discusses Italy’s eventual participation in the war and the anarchists’ propaganda campaign against the conflict. Finally, it explores how the departures of Russian militants affected the colony of anarchist refugees during the war.

Keywords:   anarchists, World Word I, London, interventionists, anti-interventionists, Petr Kropotkin, Errico Malatesta, Italy, propaganda campaign, militants
