The present document is the first public document of Pró-CAO (Pró – Coletivo Anarquista
Organizado / Pro – Organized Anarchist Collective) of Joinville, Santa Catarina, in which
we will try to present our project for the construction of an organized anarchist policy
with an ideologically revolutionary program. ---- Presentation Letter of the Pró-Coletivo

“.true anarchy cannot exist outside of solidarity, outside of socialism.” Errico Malatesta
“Idea and action are inseparable, if the idea has ascendancy over the individual; and
without action the very idea atrophies.” ---- Piotr Kropotkin ---- “Sometimes it is better
to fight and get beat up than to run away.” ---- George Orwell ----

“Equality before the law is a farce without social equality. We want opportunity for all,
not to accumulate millions, but to have a perfectly human life, without inquietudes or
freights concerning the future.”
Ricardo Flores Magón

The present document is the first public document of Pró-CAO (Pró – Coletivo Anarquista
Organizado / Pro – Organized Anarchist Collective) of Joinville, Santa Catarina, in which
we will try to present our project for the construction of an organized anarchist policy
with an ideologically revolutionary program.

We insert ourselves in the reality of the global crisis of the capitalist system, where
the arguments that grapple with this said reality do not point to the structure of the
system; the States are the mechanisms to regulate and maintain the economic order and the
supposed ways out for the crisis, while the working class both employed and unemployed
pays with more exploration and suffering.

We think the global structure linked to Joinville’s reality, where the reflexes are
perceived in the factories, with the increase in unemployment; meanwhile the unions do not
know – or do not want to know – how to resist the dismissals, thus assuming the discourse
of the entrepreneurs or putting the blame on the working class apathy.

The youngest strata of the population, everyday further from the reality of a future, has
their dreams directed towards consumption, often to products harmful to themselves;
federal, state and city public policies in this sense are merely trickeries and not a
profound and radical view that could bring about a solution. We can perceive the State’s
incapacity to deal with such problems through measures that difficult the free circulation
of youth, as well as all the non-rich population, through increases in the public
transportation fees, maintaining transport in the private perspective and curfew for
youngsters with less than eighteen in central streets. Actually, it is in these situations
that we perceive the State’s real function, of an oppressor and a watchdog for the owners
of capital.

For these and many other reasons we believe that the present model of representative
democracy, where those “elected by the people” increase their own salaries and benefits as
much as they want, is not and will never be capable of acting for the economically lower
strata of the population, i.e., the low economic power conducts the individual to a low
political power according to the present representative logic, besides of course other
prejudicial prerogatives that reduce the possibility to do politics, such as being a
woman, of an ethnic minority, drug user or of diverse sexual orientations.

We propose the Organized Anarchism Collective as an alternative do “do politics” without
necessarily being tied to institutional political parties that believe that politics is
done only or solely in parliament. Denying this perspective, we affirm that true politics
is the one that emanates directly from the people.

Discontentment with the social reality, with the perpetuation of the State, of the
capitalist system and recognition of the impossibility of authoritarian domination and the
exploitation of people by people, we look for a way towards an anarchist organization,
trying to develop collectively a revolutionary anarchist political program for the reality
in which we live and where we are exploited. At the same time, we look for an
approximation with other organizations that have perspectives and aims that converge with
ours in the Brazilian territory as well as on the rest of the globe, trying to establish
an effective change of experiences in the class war for the suppression of capitalism and
the State, promoting the popular organization, because only so can we defeat them.

Our vision is of an anarchism politically organized and of a social action inserted “to
the bones” in social movements, popular organizations, student movements and entities
always trying to build side by side, never directing as habitually does the traditional
and institutionalized left in social fights, or having any vanguard attitudes, as would
like some theorists.

Upon this vision – which we recognize that will have to be deepened – and understanding
that humanity did not corrupt itself only in the economic direction, so that it would be a
binary resolution to terminate the conflict employer/employee, we aim at the construction
of an anarchy linked to: socialism, a class war beyond the economic class, federalism,
freedom, organization, self-management and anti-statism.

Aiming always at the collective construction with other anarchists whose conviction is in
accordance with this first document, we understand that for the construction of an
organization capable of maintaining these proposals it is necessary time, work and
experience, for we firmly believe it is very important to combine theory and practice with
the social and political reality of our city. This is the purpose of pro-CAO (pro-OAC), to
be the foundation for a future organization compromised with Libertarian Socialism.
