SOUTH CHICAGO ANARCHIST NETWORK (SCAN)
Established in February 2000, the South Chicago Anarchist Network (SCAN) is 
an open network of and for socialist anarchists from the southern parts of 
Chicago, working for cooperation, solidarity, inclusiveness, openness, 
grassroots democracy, plurality, tolerance, freedom, individuality, and 
autonomy.

Our weekly meetings are open to all anarchists and close-to-anarchists in 
south Chicago to discuss, initiate, and network around strategies, projects, 
actions, and campaigns. (Contact us for details.)


GENERAL AIMS

(1) To promote the development and growth of the anarchist and 
close-to-anarchist community in south Chicago. To this end, we will initiate 
and support anarchist and close-to-anarchist activities, projects, groups, 
infoshops, media outlets, forms of unionizing, and so on, and also promote 
networking, communication, and cooperation between them.

(2) To promote the emergence, development, and strengthening of alternative 
social and economic structures and institutions in south Chicago. To this 
end, we will initiate and support alternative forms of organization 
(grassroots democratic, cooperative, non-hierarchic, non-capitalist, 
non-authoritarian etc.) in all areas of social life (activism, media, 
culture, education, health care, public transportation, enterprising, 
housing, banking, distribution, production etc.).
