(en) US, Announcing SWARM: A New Atlanta Anti-Authoritarian Collective

Date Thu, 27 Sep 2012 11:35:31 +0200


Announcing SWARM, a new collective to form in the Atlanta area springing from the past year of activity and action. We've found each other in struggle and have come to the conclusion that working together benefits us and the goals that we share. SWARM has decided to take on the project of opening a radical space in the area. We hope to kick this project off with a good start, so we're holding a fundraiser on Saturday 9-29: http://atlanta.indymedia.org/fundraiser/swarm-movie-night-fundraiser-may-day-atanta-film-series ---- For more information on SWARM and updates on what we're doing keep an eye on: ---- Website: http://www.swarmatlanta.org ---- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/swarmatlanta ---- Email: info@swarmatlanta.org


SWARM stands for Social War and Radical Mobilization.

Animated by a common revolutionary purpose, we are an anti-authoritarian collective in Atlanta that struggles for a world without capitalism or government. We desire a world in which we no longer work for bosses, where we cooperate together to meet our needs, and where profit, exploitation, racism, sexism, homophobia, and ableism are barbarisms of the past.

To help make this world into a reality, we have come together, an angry and inspired swarm, to empower our communities, enliven anti-authoritarian culture in our region, and disrupt the power of capitalism and government. Keen to learn from the successes and failures of past revolutionary movements, we do not defer to leaders or a voting process; we reject electoral politics and reformist strategies of delaying change. Above all, we value direct action and material, pragmatic results over symbolic protest and futile pleas with power.

The problems that afflict our city and region have been the tired subject of countless liberal and authoritarian attempts at change. Yet, police violence remains unchecked, poverty is tightening its grip on the working class, the military continues to kill thousands abroad, and we have as little control over our own lives as we did yesterday. Where are the promised set of changes? Nowhere to be seen.

Experience and history teach us that we can’t count on Democrats or other hierarchical, big-money organizations to take up our struggles for us. We’ve played the waiting game long enough. In politics as in everyday life, if you want something done right, do it yourself–or better yet, with the mutual help of your friends and neighbors. This is the project of SWARM.
