Believe In Free Association This means that everyone has the right to live where
they choose, work where they choose, and have social relationships with whom
they choose. ---- Anarchists Are Anti-Racist ---- We do not believe in
differentiating between people because of their ethnic ancestry. We believe that
all privilege, discrimination, and segregation based on ethnicity, national
origin, or cultural group must be eradicated. --- Anarchists Are AntiNationalist
This means that we do not recognise the right of any government to legislate
citizenship. We do not recognise the territorial sovereignty of any nation or
the legitimacy of any national borders.

Anarchists Are Anti-Authoritarian

We believe that no one should dominate another, no national
government should seek to dominate another, and no ethnic
group, caste, social class should dominate another. We believe
that society should be organised democratically and that all gov-
ernments must be abolished. We believe that social peace should
be maintained by the community and not racist cops.

Anarchists Are Anti-Capitalist

We believe that poverty and unemployment are intentionally cre-
ated by capitalists as threats to use against and control working
people. They are not caused by immigration
which is simply the migration of people from
areas of the world where land and labour are
exploited by the capitalists to areas of the world
where capitalists own powerful governments whose laws and
military forces protect them and their wealth and do their bidding.
We believe that everyone who wants to work should have a well-
paid job and that jobs like raising children, not compensated by
capitalists, should be financially supported.
Under capitalism 80 percent of all wealth
produced by a worker is stolen by capital-
ists, bosses, or government before they are
paid for their work. We believe that it is pos-
sible for everyone who wants to work to have
a job where they can earn more but work
only half as much as under capitalism. We
believe that people should not be restricted
in moving across national borders to work to
feed their families because it is possible for
there to be plenty of work for everyone.

Anarchists Believe In International Labour Solidarity

We believe in Syndicalism, Industrial Unionism, and the use of
Direct Action including the Stay-In General Strike where workers
occupy their work places to deprive the capitalists and their police
state governments the resources to attack us. We believe that the
people who do the work should own the work place and share the
benefit of what they produce and that wage slavery, where capi-
talists steal the value of what we produce and call it "profit," must
be abolished. We believe that capitalists and bosses who produce
nothing and exploit our labour should be done away with and
replaced with co-operative work places that are run democratical-
ly. We believe that working people of all nations should co-oper-
ate to insure that everyone has an equal standard of living and that
transnational capitalist corporations can no longer force us to
accept wage slavery, dangerous and inhumane working condi-
tions, and the poisoning of our communities by pollution to avoid
the threat of poverty, unemployment, or death by starvation or dis-
ease. We believe that we working people can take control of our
lives without any need for leaders or a
government to tell us what to do
because we know what needs to
be done and are best able
to make it happen.
