A new anarchist communist organization for Ontario - Canada

category north america / mexico | anarchist movement | feature author Sunday August 12, 2007 11:26author by OntarioAC Report this post to the editors

We are a group of anarchist communists in the process of forming an organization in Ontario. We are so fresh we don't yet have a name. We are inviting other anarchists to consider getting involved with us in helping to create an anarchist movement across Ontario.

[ Français ] [ Castellano ] [ Italiano ] [ Ελληνικά ] [ Português ]

Right from the start we want to have a regularly updated web site accompanying a regular free newspaper that will be distributed in the 1000's. It will combine articles on anarchism with reports on the struggles of ordinary working people that are taking place now in this province. Our intention is not to build yet another small group of a dozen or so people but to begin the process of building an organization of thousands that will have a presence in every town, workplace and neighboorhood across the province.

The individuals involved in drafting this statement of intent are located in southern Ontario but we are interested in making contact with both individuals and groups outside of this area. Some of us have lived here for a while, and been involved in previous anarchist initiatives in Ontario, others have migrated here recently and have been involved in organisations in other provinces and countries. We want to get in touch with anarchists of all ages right across the province whether you have been active forty years or are just taking the first steps.

Some of us have been members of the North East Federation of Anarchist Communists or the Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland). Most of us are now NEFAC members or supporters. We think it sensible that any Ontario anarchist communist organisation will have an open relationship with the NEFAC groups in Quebec and the North Eastern USA. However our key focus is on building an organization that will build a movement in Ontario capable of providing real solidarity with struggles and that through local strength can contribute to the global struggle for an anarchist world. In terms of basic political positions we are seeking to contact people who broadly agree with the Anarkismo.net statement (see link below).

We want you to get involved, contact us at ontarioac@gmail.com letting us know your first name and where you are located.

What exactly is the reason for the organization not already being affiliated with NEFAC? Is this a future goal or are the geographic and language distances and differents more of the central reason.

"Our intention is not to build yet another small group of a dozen or so people but to begin the process of building an organization of thousands that will have a presence in every town, workplace and neighboorhood across the province. "

Very nice goals indeed. Would be interesting to hear how these goals materialize in the future.
