(en) Britain, Statement from Liberty & Solidarity 7th Conference has taken the decision to disband the organisation

Date Thu, 27 Sep 2012 14:36:45 +0200


Liberty & Solidarity's 7th Biannual conference has taken the decision to disband the organisation. We are still proud of what Liberty & Solidarity has achieved and we hope to continue to work together towards shared goals, engaging with an ever broader range of trade unionists and community activists. Our project, the empowerment of working people within the workplace and society, remains the same. ---- Over the past four years of our existence, L&S members up and down the country have gotten thoroughly involved in union branches and residents groups. We hope we have made a positive impact, arguing for an organising-based approach and for syndicalist ideas. We have learnt a lot through this experience and it has undoubtedly shaped our perspective, with many of our younger members having their first taste of working within the labour movement.

Consequently L&S has changed. Where as in 2008 we started out with the intent of forging a platformist anarchist organisation, clearly now our politics are less aligned with anarchism and far more with syndicalism. Not only our politics, but also our analysis, our understanding of the labour movement and its problems has changed dramatically. Further, the world in 2012 looks a lot different to that of 2008, when the credit crunch was just coming into effect, before any talk of cuts or austerity.

Given our changing politics and perspectives, and given the changed political terrain in which we operate, we believe that Liberty & Solidarity is no longer an organisation that serves a useful function. Whilst it has had its fair share of successes, we currently find the organisation too small to be maintainable in an efficient manner.

Consequently, Liberty & Solidarity's 7th Biannual conference has taken the decision to disband the organisation.

We are still proud of what Liberty & Solidarity has achieved and we hope to continue to work together towards shared goals, engaging with an ever-broader range of trade unionists and community activists. Our project, the empowerment of working people within the workplace and society, remains the same.
