(en) Czech, afed: Spring Congress of the Anarchist Federation -- Report from a regular meeting of our Federation.

Date Wed, 25 Apr 2018 08:09:34 +0300

In mid-April, the first annual Congress of the Anarchist Federation (AF) took place in Prague. Whoever follows the events of the organized anarchist movement certainly knows that there are always two congresses within the AF that summarize the activities of regional groups in the past inter-period and their plans for the future, the work of individual working groups within the federation and events and projects that go across the federation are planned. And that's one of the central goals of federal organization. The Federation serves as a platform for communication and coordination of supraregional activities, such as building contacts with foreign groups and engaging in the International Federation of Anarchist Federations (IFA) or ensuring the quality of publishing activities.

Present representatives of regional groups agreed that the activity of individual members and members is very often tied to other projects of the broader anti-terrorist movement, which is not to the detriment, yet it is important that AF as such also has some outcomes to promote a federative way self-organization. His need may not be so obvious in the capital, where there is a relatively large concentration of anti-authoritarian activists and activists, but it is an essential organizational element for organizing itself outside of Prague.

The agenda included, among other things, the status of a federation fund, which consists of membership contributions. Their recommended minimum is $ 50 per month. IFA's contributions, its regular meetings, possible joint AF campaigns, or, for example, the new autonomous area in Prague, are currently supported by a one-time contribution.

The Foreign Secretariat reported on current events at the IFA and its member federations. At the same time, delegates and AF delegates were scheduled to attend the various international meetings scheduled to take place in the coming months. Of course, issues of security and the dissemination of basic security culture have also been dealt with outside the organization. Similarly, possibilities and possible organizational measures were discussed in connection with the expansion and development of new forms of Internet communication, sharing of data and information.

Representatives of the AF Publishing House presented an editorial plan for the next period, mainly related to the preparation of book novels to be premiered at the Anarchist Book Festival this year on May 19 in Eterny, Prague. And there is really something to look forward to. This was followed by a debate about other activities we would like to contribute to the bookfair. They also discussed the proposal to resume publishing an anarchist reporter, Zdola , which could deal with some subject in part, but most of the texts would be news, especially foreign, which had already appeared on the federation's website.

In addition, there were discussions on the support of prosecuted activists and activists, the problem of the efforts of the repressive forces to infiltrate the movement through paid confidants, the way media outputs and their co-ordination within the wider movement. In the meantime, there has been a long-awaited campaign promoting anarchist ideas or our engagement at First May.

There is a lot of work ahead of us, and it is true that there is not much to do with it. It should be remembered that if we have some common goals, dreams and visions, they will not be fulfilled otherwise than through self-organization. So do not hesitate to engage in anarchist and other anti-authoritarian activities and groups, cooperate, develop your own initiative, and do not be discouraged by the fact that things do not change like a magic wand. Only joint, long-term and systematic work within an organized movement can have results and bring us closer to our visions.
