A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

We are a small, newly established group of revolutionary anarchists, who
feel the need of further active cooperation after our resignation from
the Organization of Revolutionary Anarchists - Solidarity.

Our ascending discontent with the current trends in this organization
and interpersonal disagreements prompted our resignation. It is over a
year that the issue of revolutionary theory and practice have been
discussed in Solidarity and nowadays ORAS is finally leaving the
positions of anarcho-communism, which was entirely confirmed at the last
ORAS conference in Prague. There several members of ORAS clearly
expressed that they no more consider themselves to be anarchists and
that they believe the anarchist movement to be antirevolutionary. Such
movements as the left communism and the communism rad nowadays inspire
ORAS. For that reason a fraction of members from Brno, Uh. Hradiste and
Prerovsko left ORAS in protest and founded the Anarchocommunist
alternative. We did so for several reasons:

Although the ideas of the left communism or the council communism can be
inspiring in many cases, we object to the refusal of the platform
tradition in anarchist movement as of the directions to form the tactics
of a revolutionary organization, which is being rejected by a number of
left communists and said to be contrarevolutionary. Furthermore we
disagree with the refusal of political activism and the syndical
elements in the worker's struggle. We still believe the anarchist
organization to be an ideological “vanguard” that associates the most
libertarian-conscious part of the working class and also to be the
helper and the mastermind of the organization of workers in the struggle
against capitalism.With our unionization we can contribute to the
limitation of the authoritarian ideologies such as bolshevism and its
scions, fascism and nationalist socialis m

We don't reject activism, according to us it has still been one of the
best ways to spread revolutionary ideas among workers, but at the same
time we don't think it to be the only way. We will continue to support
the trade union struggle, as though with emphasis put on its
independence and the promotion of solidarity and autonomy principles.
That is because we don't think the organizing at workplaces has outlived
its usefulness. There are still many possibilities of radical trade
union activities in both our country and the world. It is true, that
these are reformist, but only thanks to the struggle for partial
elements the work class can gain revolutionary consciousness and learn

We don't feel ourselves to be anarcho-syndicalists, autonoms,
ecoprimitivists, or anarcho-individualists. We are anarcho-communists
and that is why we consider the revolutionary anarchist organization
important. Temporarily, we plan this new project as a propagand ist
collective of the people, who want to spread the ideas of the class
struggle with all their forces (by means of brochures, leaflets,
magazines and public activities) and to develop theoretical discuss that
can later lead to a more profiled anarchist organization based on
platformist principles.

We want to continue in everything that we consider positive, which was
started in the times of still "anarchist" Solidarity and in which we
participated actively.
