(en) Czech, AFED: Anarchist Federation - Black Boy Scouts

Date Mon, 9 Jul 2018 08:41:06 +0300

Black Boy Scouts are an independent movement associating boys and girls, men and women of all ages with an interest in leftist non-authoritarian scouting - an educational movement inspired by the ideas of Ernest Thompson Seton and Francesco Ferrer. We also find inspiration in free and unbounded tremors. ---- The activity of the black-eyed skate is not only summer camping in tents, cottages or under a hut. The same, even greater, we go on a trip to the mountains and forests, both in winter and in summer. Most often on foot with a backpack on his back. The goal is to meet face-to-face, circle of friends and peers, young and old, parents and children in the middle of nature. ---- In the wanderings of nature and when camping with a flaming fire, we want not only to get to know and entertain, but also to learn new things and to learn, to share our experiences with others, to share them. To recognize the functioning of ecosystems, to recognize plants and animals, to learn to survive in nature and also to self-sufficiency. Accept new skills, prepare food together and work collectively.

The aim of Black Boy Scouts is a person of high moral level, a person who takes care of his health and physical fitness, who lives in harmony with nature, a man aspiring to knowledge and his all-round development, a person of solid moral principles that is beneficial to his surroundings.

Black Boy Scouts build on the principles of anti-authoritarianism and equality. It teaches and cultivates self-confidence, responsibility for own actions, develops its own initiative, camaraderie and mutual assistance and solidarity. He wants to cultivate in a young man an individual who treats others as equal to equal, without subordination to unnatural authorities able to cooperate in a collective without prejudices.

Black Boy Scouts stand in opposition to the Baden-Powell model of scouting based on military hierarchy, as was the case with English scouting. On the contrary, the inspiration is taken in Woodcraft's Indians E.T. Setnona because "Seton's contribution lies in the idea of returning to nature, freedom and freedom" and the trembling of the so-called wild scouts, the young generation, originating from the poorer strata of the first Czechoslovak Republic.

The activity of Black-headed Skates takes place in children's tribes under the guidance of an adult Chief, or tribes of young people or adults or individuals and families with young children according to local conditions and needs. Each group is autonomous, each group joining together and common principles in the form of a free federation.
Initially, however, it will be primarily a communication node, which aims to connect disseminated people and interested parties, help them find their way to themselves and help plan first camp meetings, trips and perhaps even build their own shed or settlement.
