(en) Canada, Quebec: Founding of the Union Communiste Libertaire - UCL

Date Tue, 25 Nov 2008 11:19:55 +0200

Montreal, November 23, 2008 - A new revolutionary organisation, the Union
Communiste Libertaire (UCL), was founded during a congress attended by over 50
delegates in the neighborhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. The new organisation
will take over from the NEFAC Regional union in Quebec. ---- Reforming Process
The long reforming process of the North-Eastern Federation of Anarcho-Communists
(NEFAC) in Quebec, which announced a will to spread organised anarchism in all
of the province's regions, united anarchists from a half-dozen cities around the
province under one banner. The new organisation will be composed of local
collectives in the cities of Montreal, Quebec and Sherbrooke as well as
Drummondville, Saint-Jérôme and Saguenay, along with links in other communities
such as Trois-Rivières.

Primarily, the congress has made possible the adoption of a completely new
constitution defining the united function of the new organisation which is
inspired by the historical teachings of platformism. As well, a revision of
NEFAC's aims and principles was made while the project of an anarcho-communist
manifest is being developed. The congress also laid down the groundwork for an
action plan that includes a campaign on the economic crisis which is currently
unsettling capitalism.

The participants received revolutionary greetings from anarcho-communist
organisations around the world, such as Worker’s Solidarity Alliance in the US,
Red Libertarias in Buenos Aires and the Chilean magazine Ombre y Sociedad. The
Internationale des fédérations anarchistes, the French Alternative Libertaire
and Common Cause in Ontario even decided to delegate members for observation.

The Union Communiste Libertaire is an organisation of militants with backgrounds
in various resistance movements, who identify with the communist tradition
within anarchism and who share a common goal of a revolutionary break with the
established order. UCL's activity is organised around theoretical development,
the spreading of anarchist ideas and intervention within our class' struggles,
both autonomously and through direct involvement in social movements.

On a theoretical level, the Union Communiste Libertaire identifies with
anarcho-communism principles and builds upon the theoretical foundations of that
particular tradition. On a tactical level, the UCL advocates an involvement in
social struggles geared towards the radicalization of these struggles and the
construction of counter-powers.
