Le Monde libertaire was first published as a monthly magazine in October 1954.[3] Its name is a reference to another publication called Le Libertaire, which was launched in France in 1895 by Sebastien Faure and Louise Michel.[3] On 6 October 1977 its frequency was switched to weekly.[3] The magazine is published by the Fédération Anarchiste.[1][4]
