(en) Aotearoa Workers' Solidarity Movement (AWSM) - ANNOUNCEMENT: Mutual Aid Fund (MAF)

Date Sat, 28 Apr 2018 11:07:47 +0300


AWSM is announcing the establishment of a Mutual Aid Fund (MAF). This is intended as political and financial support for projects and campaigns organised by other organisations with which we sympathize. We do so with the following considerations: ---- 1) We will use a ‘scale of priority' around requests for funds from the MAF. This is based primarily on who the organisation is and secondly on the timeliness or urgency attached to the need for the funds. The priority in order of relevance is: ---- a) Work by other Anarcho-communist groups in NZ/A ---- b) Work by other Anarchist groups in A/NZ ---- c) Work by non-Anarchist groups in NZ/A that benefits the working class ---- d) Work by other Anarcho-communist groups overseas ---- e) Work by other Anarchist groups overseas ---- f) Work by non-Anarchist groups overseas that benefits the working class

So this doesn't mean "First come, first served" but "Most relevant based on our criteria, served."

2) We expect some acknowledgement or recognition of AWSM's contribution to the particular project. The specifics of this will be discussed with the organisation requesting access to the MAF.

3) While we definitely wish to assist the good work of other organisations, we will not be able to exceed our internally allocated financial resources for the MAF, which will be determined on an annual basis. When its gone, its gone. Like all political organisations, our primary function remains pursuing and promoting our own efforts.

4) We will endeavour to process requests for MAF access as fast as we can, allowing for the urgency of the project or campaign in question. To help us do this, we would appreciate applicants supply as much detailed information as possible. We will notify people as soon as we can, following internal debate on the request.

We look forward to hearing from interested organisations that share our desire for a world without hierarchy and exploitation.

In Solidarity
