(en) Australia, Autonarcon: an anarchist / autonomous activist gathering in Perth

Date Sun, 18 Dec 2005 17:15:00 +0200

Autonarcon! January 29th 2006 - City Farm - Perth WA - an
anarchist/autonomous activist gathering. Website and email list
welcome your input and participation...
What is Autonarcon?
For lack of a decent immediate short name for a proposed Perth
Anarchist and Autonomous Activist Gathering - 'Autonarcon' could
be described as an upcoming gathering of creative, dynamic people
who identify as, although not limiting themselves to, anarchists,
dissidents, activists or maybe describe their politics as autonomous,
independent, radical, or seek a life free of hierarchical control.

The name "Autonarcon" also pays homage to the Anarcon04
gathering held at Groovy Space and City Farm in January 2004. And
of the Anarcon idea itself.

On January 29 2006 we will converge on City Farm Perth for a day
of radical talks, activist circles, media workshops, open space fora

Details are embryonic and organic. The process is developmental,
flexible and participartory. Please get involved and help build a
program you want to see.

Some workshops and discussions will be planned, however we like
the idea of Open Space.

Consensus organising, affinity and mutual aid are all aspects of the
facilitation of autonarcon. You are very welcome and encouraged to
propose workshops and discussion ideas. Email us to get involved.

We hope to develop this idea of activist/anarchist gatherings over
time as a regular feature at various venues.

We will have a Zine and photo display and activist media
screenings.All dissidents of the corporate machine are very

Autonarcon is what you want it to be.


Who is organising it?

What is anarchism?
"Anarchism is a political theory which aims to create anarchy, "the
absence of a master, of a sovereign." - P-J Proudhon, What is
Property In other words, anarchism is a political theory which aims
to create a society within which individuals freely co-operate
together as equals. As such anarchism opposes all forms of
hierarchical control - be that control by the state or a capitalist - as
harmful to the individual and their individuality as well as
from An Anarchist FAQ.
