About Autonome from: http://www.autonome.org/en/about/
[from] Fast food counter to cubicle, factory line to welfare line, we've lost
control of everything we've built over generations, and with it, we have lost
control of our lives completely.

We're all up on the auction block, on sale to the highest bidder.

The tragedy of this grand bazaar is that we pray for the high bid,
but we'll never see any of it ourselves. The bid itself? Smoke and
mirrors, a sideshow to keep us all from running for the hills,
running far away until the auction itself is just a faint memory.

There are those of us who build and create and design and grow,
and those who wait until we are finished, then run off with the
result. We live our whole lives taking care of them and they live
their whole lives being served by us. There are those who work,
and those who own.

Those who own have policemen, private security, lawyers, judges,
and politicians. But we have each other.

Autonome exists as a reminder to all working people: We are not
alone. We are not powerless. We are not machines, or puppets, we
are not easily discarded or forgotten. Some of us were slaves,
some of us worked for wages, but none of us ever really had a
choice. Through love, labor, determination, and friendship, we
built this world from the ground up years ago, only to have it
seized out from under us in recent times.

And now, finally, we will ask for it back. And we won't take 'no'
for an answer.

Reminder: This is only a website, not a revolution. What you see
here is not an end unto itself, but the necessary beginning to a
never ending story. Don't be content to just read the writings of
others, go and live a life worth writing about.
