reflections on 1986 and now

It’s 35 years since the AF was first formed as the Anarchist Communist Federation in 1986. We’ve published retrospectives on several occasions before in the 10, 20, 25 and 30 year specials of Organise! This time we look back at what was happening in and around 1986 and its relationship to the emergence of the new anarchist organisations.

From Anarchist Federation

AF note: The following is from the IFA Secretariat who are currently the FAI in Italy (this role rotates amongst the Federations making up the membership of IFA). We previously published a nice read about the anarchist origins of Mayday including the Haymarket Affair in Chicago mentioned below. Also, our 25th anniversary issue of Organise!  magazine 77 from a decade ago has articles we have previously published about the Paris Commune which was especially influential on the development of anarchist communism. Earlier in the year we also celebrated and remembered the bravery of the Kronstadt rebellion of 1921.

TOTW: An Anarchist Federation

In 2020 let us flip the script. Let us, in 2020 at a national gathering (somewhere in the middle of the continent between Texas and Chicago) and form a solid "big tent" anarchist gathering with these principles.

1) Let us be united in the purpose of demonstrating anarchism as a politics of action
2) Let us not get bogged down in the specifics of hyphens. All anarchists are invited. DIYers, Red, Green, and other anarchists who wish anarchism to live as an action ideology
3) Let us pick some areas to focus our on (like New Hampshire for the Libertarians.), perhaps Vermont or Oregon.
4) Let us federate defensively, for a state and exchange free world, for a free people, and for doing things with dignity

Anarchist Federation Back Earth Strike

On the 20th of September, around the world, hundreds of organisations are coming together under the banner of Earth Strike to hold a general strike for the climate. ---- As part of our general activity, some AF members have been involved with Earth Strike UK, either autonomously or via the Green Anti-Capitalist Front/GAF (Wales), and implicit support has been given from the AF during various actions. Now, as agreed by our Federal Delegates Meeting on the 17th of August, the Anarchist Federation endorses and puts our full organisational support behind Earth Strike.

Solidarity with Exarcheia!: a statement by Anarchist Federation

From Freedom News UK

On Sunday the 26th of August, the Greek police launched a large operation in Exarcheia, the famous rebel district in the centre of Athens. This is a unique place in Europe for its high concentration of squats and other self-organised spaces, but also for its resistance against repression and solidarity with migrants and the precariat.
