The need to build from below and outside the State, and the prospect of generating a specifically anarchist strategy, led us to search for a common ground where we could come together. The Columna Durruti, (Western zone), Columna Malatesta (Cap. Fed. zone), and Columna Penina (Rosario zone) were expressions of this search, together with a whole litter of comrades in different parts of the country. [Italiano] [Castellano]

Birth of the Anarchist-Communist Federation of Argentina (FACA)


Out of the process of struggle that has existed in Argentina over the last 15 years, there has appeared a generation of anarchist militants participating in the various social movements, organizations of the unemployed, union committees, cultural and counter-information groups, popular assemblies, etc.

The need to build from below and outside the State, and the prospect of generating a specifically anarchist strategy, led us to search for a common ground where we could come together. The Columna Durruti, (Western zone), Columna Malatesta (Cap. Fed. zone), and Columna Penina (Rosario zone) were expressions of this search, together with a whole litter of comrades in different parts of the country.

Today we're upping the ante in seeking to express with a single fist the diversity of the anti-statist experiences that have emerged from the social struggles of the past, and returning anarchism to its historical legacy, and testing it against today's realities.

Naturally, the name FACA has been adopted in reference to the historic FACA founded in 1935, but we make no pretence to be the old organization, nor believe that we are its historical continuity. We have simply chosen to take it as a reference to its being one of the first examples of specific anarchist organization in Argentina and because in its name synthesizes our intention to build a national federation of organized anarchism.

Because we believe in an anarchism that acts and with the new possibilities for social interaction, we have our feet firmly planted in the context in which we live.

Because our anarchism calls into question and breaks with the institutions of the existing system.

This is why the Anarchist Communist Federation of Argentina (FACA) was born.

DOWN WITH THE STATE!
