For several decades, the conflictual between social classes,
sleepy by the liberal fable, is undergoing a process of invisibility.
to such an extent that, for many, no longer appear, it would be more
purpose today. We would live so everyone in a kind
large middle class in the process of universalization who successfully erase
differences and antagonisms. We would all and all
elements more or less undifferentiated society, evolving according to
needs and goals "generic" directed by the slope "natural" "
Progress "(material well-being guaranteed by the consumption enrollment
a professional project / life, personal development in ways
and stuff ...). The class antagonism would remain, and even
residually, as a relic of the time of industrialization,

At the same time, media activists (from the extreme left

have a long history, they are still operative today? Figure

understand what is at stake in the current struggles.

Who are the OLS
Libertarian and Social offensive was born in the year 2003 will participate in the
construction of a real offensive that put an end to capitalism, patriarchy and contributes
to the development of other future reports without domination or exploitation. We advocate
for a society based on solidarity, social equality and freedom. Several principles
Independence Act in a manner free from any institutional logic tied to the state or capital.
Federalism and individual groups that make up the es-OLS are autonomous, they combine
freely while respecting the foundations and values ââof the OLS.
AssemblÃisme Practice or encourage horizontal forms of organization and decision-making
relied on direct democracy.
Anti-authoritarianism Combat all forms of domination whether social, gender, 'race' ... We
also reject the logic of conquest of power that the implementation of cons-institutional
powers to fight against the hierarchical practices.
Out Through our intervention policies and practices, we want to ask at the end of today's
society. We want to promote the existence of alternative social relations and helping to
develop space and time emancipated and subversive. We therefore take part in the emergence
of creative utopia.
Mutual support and promote research contribution of solidarity between subversion
projects, according to the principles of freedom of association and experimentation, to
act in accordance with the partners ... We want to work for a world where well-being and
happiness are among the first concerns.
The OLS is as an element in the constellation libertarian, making its contribution to the
revolutionary movement. The organization is not an end in itself and should not take
precedence over the struggle and reflection.
We refuse to engage in terms of our own interests organizational "pass" a fight to another
as modes. Even if we appear from time to time as "OLS" - through Offensive newspaper we
publish at some political events - to confront, defend or share our values, our ideas, our
practices, we do not the logical representation. In a society based on appearances, the
revolutionary movement must not succumb to the lure of spectacle.
We fight especially against everything that makes us human beings alienated and / or
oppressors : social exploitation, economic insecurity, patriarchy, heterosexism,
technological tyranny, racism, massification. Faced with the logic of confinement and
stupidity, we offer other forms of emancipatory associations where the return engagement
between theory and practice are ongoing and we can build stable relationships, not
alienating, esteem and cooperation.
We want to build a truly democratic society, if we define democracy as a form of
organization of power to know and control our conditions. It is important to think of new
social organizations that allow sharing of debates and decisions. This amounts to breaking
the power of autonomy. It should not be outside of the company, but in his breast must be
If the parentage of OLS is part of the long history of anarchism, we refer also to other
associations and movements. We are trying our level contribute to the renewal of the
critical libertarian, participate in the creation and dissemination of alternative
anti-authoritarian and liberating.
