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 more than 4 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.
