In Brisbane, Australia

The struggle for a new world has been a long one and has been contributed to by countless individuals and organisations in that time. While the path often seems long and sometimes hopeless we believe that a new world is not just possible, but necessary for our survival. We hope that with this new organisation we like so many before us can play a part in making this vision become reality.

Formation of Anarchist Communists Meanjin

Brisbane, Australia

We are excited to officially announce the formation of Anarchist Communists Meanjin!

We are an organisation of revolutionaries who share a common vision of a new world – an anarchist communist world - where people collectively control their workplaces, communities and land, where all needs are met and all people are able to flourish. A world where power and decision making flow from the bottom up and society is organised for peoples’ aspirations, passions, and needs rather than profit, where we can live sustainability with the planet and where oppressive social structures based on racism, imperialism, patriarchy and heteronormativity are a thing of the past.

We believe that this vision can only be brought about through the revolutionary power of the working class organised in the workplaces, communities, schools, and streets in order to overthrow the state and capitalism, thereby enacting a social revolution and building a new world from below.

As those actively seeking to construct this vision we are inspired by the traditions of anarchist-communism, Marxism, especifismo, platformism, women’s liberation, queer liberation, decolonisation, abolitionism, anti-racism and the history of global struggle for liberation. We are inspired by a long tradition of struggle and by all the revolutionaries before us, whose tireless work and commitment have laid the path we follow today. Most importantly we acknowledge that First Nations Peoples fight against invasion and colonisation is the longest ongoing struggle within So-Called Australia and is central to any possibility of social change on this continent today.
We believe in the need for a political home from which to organise ourselves and put forward our vision. We believe in the need to create spaces for the development of new revolutionaries that allow the grouping together of similarly minded militants in order to facilitate the development of all.

We see the need to build a specifically anarchist communist organisation united around a common set of ideas, strategy, and practice. We believe that political organisations should speak to the needs of our time, and act as a catalyst in struggles to expand their revolutionary potential. Revolutionary organisation should be a vehicle to build, contribute to, and learn from social struggles and eventually act as a motor for social revolution.

While we have formed out of Unite, Anarchist Communists Meanjin is a new and completely separate organisation based upon a greater unity of theory and action. Unite will continue on in its amazing work, particularly the running of Common House, one of the most vibrant centres of radical organising in Meanjin, and one they hope to open up even more like minded groups in the future. You can follow their amazing work and get in touch here - https://www.facebook.com/UniteCommonHouseBNE

We would like to make clear that the formation of Anarchist Communists Meanjin is not a split from Unite but rather the result of a group of comrades developing and expanding their politics in new ways, which eventually required the formation of an entirely new organisation.

For those interested in getting involved with Anarchist Communists Meanjin we can be reached either through our facebook or our website https://acmeanjin.org

You can also find out more information about our politics & strategy on our website, as well as ongoing streams of propaganda and education.

Watch this space for events in the future, we plan to hold regular public reading groups & discussion nights starting on the 19th where we will be reading and discussing a range of articles on ‘Especifismo’, a variant of anarchist communist organising birthed in Latin America, from which we are heavily influenced.

The struggle for a new world has been a long one and has been contributed to by countless individuals and organisations in that time. While the path often seems long and sometimes hopeless we believe that a new world is not just possible, but necessary for our survival. We hope that with this new organisation we like so many before us can play a part in making this vision become reality.
