(en) ASCED - International text call: anarcho-syndicalism and intersectionality (fr)

Date Sat, 6 Jan 2018 09:03:23 +0200

Greetings, ---- You are invited to contribute to the following text call: ---- https://cedasasced.wordpress.com/2017/12/24/international-text-call-anarcho-syndicalism-and-intersectionality/ ---- It can be a new text or an old one that is already published elsewhere. ---- Information about the Anarcho-Syndicalist Collective for Education and Diffusion (ASCED) follows the text call at the end of this email. ---- Solidarity, ---- ASCED members ---- ******* To all anarchists who read these lines, ----If anarcho-syndicalism has your interest, you are invited to send us before March 15th 2018 a text of one page (two pages maximum) elaborating your anarcho-syndicalist perspectives on the fight against discrimination and on the intersectional struggles that affect women, racialized, migrants, LGBTQ, disabled, indigenous people, etc. We strongly encourage people who are discriminated to write a text.

The formula is very open. You don't have to be an expert in this field. Your text can be a personal testimony, a personal reflection, an historical perspective on the scale of your area or the world, an editorial, a poem, etc. We are also open to texts that do not relate directly to the suggested theme. For example, you can talk about anarcho-syndicalist perspectives on gentrification and class struggle in general. On the other hand, we will keep the freedom not to publish the texts which correspond to a form of oppression / exploitation (like anarcho-capitalism, nationalism, racism, social democracy, marxism-leninism , etc.).

We encourage you to write so that your text is accessible to a large anarchist public, since our goal is popular education and theoretical development for all. Since we wish to operate in a bilingual manner, we will translate as much as possible the texts received before February 15th 2018.

This theme aims to highlight the practices and struggles of anarcho-syndicalists today to get rid of a certain image and cliché that we might have, that of a movement of white heterosexuals settlers men. Is it possible to focus on the struggles of the working class on an anarchist anti-oppressive basis today? How do you integrate the emancipation of oppressed groups in the struggles of the popular movements and more particularly in the anarcho-syndicalist struggles / groups? Can we develop a revolutionary anarcho-syndicalist perspective in specific struggles?

All the received texts will be published on Internet (and printed as much as possible) around April 2018 in a notebook of reflection on our blog. This will act as a common basis for participants in a discussion day called « Forum on Anarcho-Syndicalism » to be held at the beginning of May 2018 at the DIRA anarchist library in the territory of Tio'Tia:Ke (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) under the theme of the perspectives of anarcho-syndicalist struggles against discrimination and oppression (more information to come on this subject).

You can send your text to cedas-asced@riseup.net before March 15th 2018 and before February 15th 2018, if you wish to have the chance to get it translated in the other language.


Created in August 2017, the Anarcho-Syndicalist Collective for Education and Diffusion (ASCED) is made of anarchist militants from different parts of Quebec province (Canada). We are a French-English bilingual collective with no organizational affiliation. Our aim is to spread anarcho-syndicalist ideas to facilitate the application of revolutionary, egalitarian, anarchist strategies in the mean to fight against specific oppression and capitalist exploitation (in both it's private and statist forms). Our approach is popular education and self-education. We have a reading circle and we wish to spread anarcho-syndicalist material ( documentary projection, zines, texts, books, blog, etc.). In the end we wish this process feeds debates in social movements (community groups, unions) and among oppressed and exploited social groups so that collectively we can radicalize our practices and social change perspectives.
