(en) Britain Anarchist Federation North, Who we are and more

Date Tue, 22 Aug 2006 15:15:55 +0300

Who we are --- We are a regional grouping of the Anarchist Federation, an
organisation of class struggle anarchists in England, Scotland, Wales and
Ireland. By bringing together northern anarchist communists, we hope to be
able to support each other and further the growth of our movement and spread
of anarchist ideas. We have groups in Manchester, Sheffield and LIverpool,
with members in other towns including Bradford, Newcastle, Preston and Nottingham.
We aim to be part of the movement to abolish capitalism and all oppression
and to create a free communist society. This is anarchist communism.
We see today's society as being divided into two main opposing camps: the
ruling class, which controls all the power and wealth, and the working class,
which the rulers exploit to maintain this. By racism, sexism and other forms
of oppression, as well as war and environmental destruction, the rulers
weaken and divide us. Only the direct action of working class people can
defeat these attacks and ultimately overthrow capitalism.

As the capitalist system rules the whole world, its destruction must be
complete and world wide. We reject attempts to reform it, such as
working through parliament and national liberation movements, as they
fail to challenge capitalism itself. Unions also work as part of the
capitalist system, so although workers struggle within them, they will
be unable to bring about capitalism's destruction unless they go beyond
these limits.

Organisation is vital if we're to beat the bosses, so we work for a united
anarchist movement and are affiliated to the International of Anarchist
Federations. For a detailed description of our politics, read our Aims
and Principles http://af-north.org/principles.htm or one of the pamphlets on
this site. http://af-north.org/afpamphlets/afpamphlets.htm
