Beshtala-Chanko Labor Collective

The Beshtala-Chanko Labor Collective was a short-lived but productive group of drifters who, alongside their trades, devoted themselves to scholarly pursuits. They were motivated by utopian impulses, believing that free and useful information would improve social life in The Fringe and that commercial competition and mechanical progress were functions of free and useful information. The operation folded when an unknown operative bombed their second printing press.
