(en) Re-launch of Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 Web Site

Date Tue, 02 May 2006 14:32:43 +0300

We are pleased to announce the re-launching of Anarcho-Syndicalism 101.
The site can be found at www.anarchosyndicalism.net
Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 was created in 1997 by Ben Debney, and is now maintained
by an editorial collective drawn from members of the global anarcho-syndicalist
and revolutionary unionist movement, and open for joining by interested comrades. We see
this site as being both unique and complementary to other websites which currently exist.
Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 is a web archive of theoretical and historical texts, articles,
image and mp3 files, cultural items and outreach material produced by, and related to,
libertarian and autonomous class struggle. Here you will find information on various
aspects of anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist theory and practice, including
some texts translated into English for the first time, specifically for this site.
Given that anarcho-syndicalism is a living practice with relevance to the real world,
and not a dead dogma, this site features criticism of anarcho-syndicalism over a broad
ideological spectrum.
The site will be both interactive and also serve as library for ideas both past and
The site features a Syndicalist Directory, as well as a newswire, where visitors to
the site can make announcements and calls for solidarity. For further discussion
this site features an area where visitors can subscribe to a variety of anarcho-syndicalist
email lists, and a web-based forum.

Our Goals:
1. Collect and distribute news and analysis produced by unions, groups and individuals
all over the world who are influenced by anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist
ideas and points of view.

2. To provide a meaningful open and non-sectarian forum for the discussion of timely
issues, theory and historical events.

3. Provide a point of reference for solidarity appeals and calls for action by
anarcho-syndicalists, revolutionary unionists and other libertarian workers. Solidarity
appeals by others may also be posted after review by the Editorial Group.

4. To generally promote internationally anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist
ideas and points of view.

5. To further the understanding that our ideas and actions are not simply limited to
the workplace. That our problems and struggles are also those as consumers, tenants and
users of public services such as mass transit, hospitals, public education amongst others.

Where We Stand:

1. Promote the idea that "The liberation of the working class must be the task of the
workers themselves." This idea is inherent in the ideas of all those who are influenced
by anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist principles.

2. To promote and support autonomous workers' struggles.

3. Engage in and encourage the fight against racism, sexism, nationalism and
homophobia, and offer meaningful responses to these and other problems created by
the current capitalist system, such as militarism and environmental destruction.

4. To encourage and support efforts at building links between our movements
throughout the world.

5. Provide a forum for the promotion of ideas that aim towards the building
of a new society based on the principles of mutual aid and socialization of the
means of production, distribution and social services.

The editorial collective greets our readers and says: "Make Everyday May Day!"

For a world without bosses, bureaucrats and states.
