Glasgow Anarchist Collective (GAC), is a dynamic, grass roots, direct action group, which aims to promote the values and principles of Anarchism. Early forms of Anarchism in Scotland can be traced back to the 1880s. Glasgow Anarchists took part in every single strike & labour protest during 1915-1920. The noted Scottish Anarchist Ethel McDonald, 1909-1960, (Glasgow Anarchist Group), left a ‘venerable history of revolt’ and an Anarchistic legacy still respected today.
Hailing from a city so steeped in the spirit of revolt, libertarian, and Anarchist history; GAC was formed in 2014 – by individual anarchist activists, whom had previously campaigned together, and felt a need for an ‘active and visual’ Anarchist voice within the city of Glasgow and the wider environs of Scotland.
