(en) Canada, Anarchist journal Linchpin #7 of Common Cause - New anarchist organization in Portland: Sunrise Anarchist Collective

Date Sun, 04 Jan 2009 12:14:44 +0200

Organized anarchism keeps on growing. Here's the press release of Sunrise Anarchist Collective out
of Portland. ---- Sunrise Anarchist Collective ---- We bear the weight of capitalist oppression on
our backs. We are seen as simple vehicles for profit, wage-slaves that are fodder for the machine.
We are deprived of our own self-determination and lacking in autonomy. The capitalist machine
steals from us our rights and turns them into markets to be pillaged and ravaged, survival becoming
a profitable enterprise. Under these systems of exploitation we are all oppressed; it is our common
bond, our master story. We all sell our labor for wage, our bodies for the profit of some far
detached figurehead. We are alienated from the world that surrounds us, alienated from our
production and our communities. We can trace our oppression to a single root: capitalism.

Capitalism is what oppresses us all; capitalism is the cause of all our strife. This is not a
natural occurrence; this is not the way that things must be. A different world is possible. A world
held in common, with dreams and desires, a world of freedom and equality.

We organize to take back what the capitalist machine has stolen from us. We all strive for
autonomy, self-determination, equality and justice. Justice is a word thrown around by the
bourgeois. To the bourgeois, justice means protection of privilege and the continued oppression of
the lower class. We see justice as holding the oppressors accountable for their disempowering
actions. We believe in empowered communities that are self sustaining and collectively governed. We
strive to place the power back into the hands of the people, instead of its current concentration
in the hands of the few.

We see a world free from all forms of oppression. We see a world filled with beauty, creativity and
passion. We see a world where each individual has the ability to reach their full intellectual,
artistic and physical potential, free from the suffocating oppression that stems from capitalism.
We see a world where every individual is clothed, fed and housed. We see a world where each person
has access to good health, education and the tools needed to flourish. This is our struggle, a
struggle for freedom, for equality, and for solidarity.

We are tired of hearing endless promises from mayors, managers, presidents, and union bosses. We
see a new world built around real democracy: democracy in our communities and democracy in or
