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

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.


The CLAC is comprised of 12 autonomous groups. Other groups that are
interested in being part of the Anti-Capitalist Convergence are encouraged
to attend a general assembly or to get in touch.

The CLAC has a new member group:
