From the o.r.g.a.n.i.c web site: About Us

We are an Anarchist collective whose mission is to organize
creative resistance at the intersections of oppressions
locally and globally, and to nurture the emergence of
futures shaped by autonomous spaces and collective liberation.
Read more about our position on Anarchism, here.
Our VISION is:
· A nonviolent world free from oppression, arbitrary borders,
and the domination of individuals
· A global economy based upon cooperation between local
autonomous communities
· An ecologically conscious world in which long-term
sustainability takes precedence over material greed

Join us: We meet weekly in Sherman Heights. You can email us at
info at organiccollective dot org to get directions.


Our VALUES include:
· Anti-authoritarianism
· Community autonomy
· Human rights
· Global solidarity
· Equality
· Economic justice
Hallmarks

The ORGANIC collective works within the People's Global
Action Network hallmarks.

(As agreed to by social movements at the PGA Conference
in Cochabamba, Bolivia, August 2001)

1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and
feudalism; all trade agreements, institutions and
governments that promote destructive globalisation;

2. We reject all forms and systems of domination and
discrimination including, but not limited to, patriarchy,
racism and religious fundamentalism of all creeds. We
embrace the full dignity of all human beings;

3. A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that
lobbying can have a major impact in such biased and
undemocratic organisations, in which transnational capital
is the only real policy-maker;

4. A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support
for social movements' struggles, advocating forms of
resistance which maximize respect for life and oppressed
peoples' rights, as well as the construction of local
alternatives to global capitalism;

5. An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation
and autonomy.

Who We Are
We are a group of people who came together to create the
SD/TJ Mobilization against the WTO. After the mobilization,
we wanted to build on the great success we had.

You can read more about the SD/TJ Mobilization, and see photos
and video here.
