2nd Encounter towards a Sao Paulo Anarchist Federation (Federação Anarquista de São Paulo)
The Pró-Federação Anarquista de São Paulo collective invites everyone to participate in the 2nd Encounter towards a Sao Paulo Anarchist Federation on 18-19 July 2009 in the city of Sao Paulo.
The first Encounter in July 2008 saw the participation of 85 comrades, which helped strengthen the discussion on the need to build an anarchist organization in Sao Paulo with an especifist organizational basis.
It was from that Encounter che this collective was formed, with the aim of carrying on the debate. The purpose of this second Encounter, then, is to present and discuss the collective's experiences and the work done so far, and also to invite new comrades to join us. Over this first year, the participants have engaged in many activities with the aim of joining the popular struggles and contributing social and practical ideas such as direct action, autonomy, combativity, solidarity, horizontality and independence from parties.
During this process, there have been losses and gains, which enabled the collective to develop and expand. These are important effects if more people are to contribute to the building of organized social anarchist practices.
So, with a fighting spirit we invite everyone to this second Encounter, to give continuity to this task and together build a specific anarchist organization in Sao Paulo.
Long life and Liberty!
