(en) NorthEast America, Report from NEFAC's 12th conference

Date Mon, 07 Nov 2005 22:24:34 +0200

The Northeastern Federation of Anarchist-Communists held its 12th
congress this past weekend (Nov. 5-6) in Sherbrooke, Québec. Approximately
30 members were in attendance representing anarchist-communist groups from
Québec City, St-Georges de Beauce, Sherbrooke, Montréal, Toronto, Boston,
New York, New Jersey and Baltimore. A position paper on workplace struggles
calling for rank and file organizing inside and outside of trade unions was
adopted and is due to be published in our magazines as well as in pamphlet
form and on the internet in the coming weeks. The basis of a position on
Québec's national question, recognizing the right of self-determination for
the Québécois while opposing nationalist ideology, was also adopted.

Organizationally, NEFAC has decided to restructure itself in regional
unions, representing smaller geographical regions where day to day
affairs and plans of action will be easier to manage and implement.
The federation in itself will now only meet for congress' once a
year and will focus on its publications, theoretical development and
the sharing of social movement experiences.

The congress ended in a heartwarming rendition of the Internationale
and it was agreed to meet again in Montréal in the fall of 2006.
Partisans of anarchist-communism and comrades from other
organizations abroad can rest assured that the ideals of socialism and
freedom are alive and well in the northeast of North America.
