BACKGROUND
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

La CLAC -- the Anti-Capitalist Convergence of Montreal -- is a grassroots
anti-authoritarian organization comprised of several autonomous groups
that are active in various social struggles (CLAC groups are listed
below).

The CLAC has been active for almost 5 years, since April 2000, in Montreal
and the Northeast region, organizing various campaigns and projects --
within the perspective of an anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian analysis
-- utilizing and respecting a diversity of tactics ranging from popular
education to direct action.

CLAC Assemblies are a place for both active CLAC groups, as well as other
groups and individuals, to share information and, in active solidarity,
reinforce our movements for radical social justice and dignity.
