Re-launching of Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 Web Site

We are pleased to announce the re-launching of Anarcho-Syndicalism 101.

The site can be found at www.anarchosyndicalism.net

Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 was created in 1997 by Ben Debney, and is now maintained by an editorial collective drawn from members of the global anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist movement, and open for joining by interested comrades. We see this site as being both unique and complementary to other websites which currently exist.

Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 is a web archive of theoretical and historical texts, articles, image and mp3 files, cultural items and outreach material produced by, and related to, libertarian and autonomous class struggle. Here you will find information on various aspects of anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist theory and practice, including some texts translated into English for the first time, specifically for this site.

Given that anarcho-syndicalism is a living practice with relevance to the real world, and not a dead dogma, this site features criticism of anarcho-syndicalism over a broad ideological spectrum.

The site will be both interactive and also serve as library for ideas both past and present.

The site features a Syndicalist Directory, as well as a newswire, where visitors to the site can make announcements and calls for solidarity. For further discussion this site features an area where visitors can subscribe to a variety of anarcho-syndicalist email lists, and a web-based forum.

Our Goals:

1. Collect and distribute news and analysis produced by unions, groups and individuals all over the world who are influenced by anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist ideas and points of view.
2. To provide a meaningful open and non-sectarian forum for the discussion of timely issues, theory and historical events.
3. Provide a point of reference for solidarity appeals and calls for action by anarcho-syndicalists, revolutionary unionists and other libertarian workers. Solidarity appeals by others may also be posted after review by the Editorial Group.
4. To generally promote internationally anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist ideas and points of view.
5. To further the understanding that our ideas and actions are not simply limited to the workplace. That our problems and struggles are also those as consumers, tenants and users of public services such as mass transit, hospitals, public education amongst others.

Where We Stand:

1. Promote the idea that "The liberation of the working class must be the task of the workers themselves." This idea is inherent in the ideas of all those who are influenced by anarcho-syndicalist and revolutionary unionist principles.
2. To promote and support autonomous workers' struggles.
3. Engage in and encourage the fight against racism, sexism, nationalism and homophobia, and offer meaningful responses to these and other problems created by the current capitalist system, such as militarism and environmental destruction.
4. To encourage and support efforts at building links between our movements throughout the world.
5. Provide a forum for the promotion of ideas that aim towards the building of a new society based on the principles of mutual aid and socialization of the means of production, distribution and social services.

We can be reached at: editors@anarchosyndicalism.net

The editorial collective greets our readers and says: "Make Everyday May Day!"
For a world without bosses, bureaucrats and states.

Well, you can of course download any image you like, but I think most of them are in pretty low resolution, so they're probably not very suited for reproduction.

I guess it would be a good idea to make some flyers, etc that people could download. print out and spread in their neighborhood. If any of you have some good outreach material you want to put up on the site, just drop us a line, and we can add it.

Is the site still being updated? Does the team need/want any help completing the anarcho-syndicalist FAQ?

At the moment the site is updated very irregularly, but we hope to get more people involved and start making the site more active againin the near future.

If someone wants to do something with the anarcho-syndicalist FAQ, I'm sure this would be appreciated. As far as I know, the original author of it abandoned the project many years ago.

Sorry to report that it seems like Anarcho-Syndicalism 101 has joined the dustbin of history.

Yeah, I just noticed that. I had taken a lot of IWA stuff that was only on there and put on libcom, so at least that stuff isn't lost forever, but will have to check internet archive to see if I missed anything.

It would be good if the domain name could be rescued and pointed towards something useful.

It's actually just a minor technical problem, so neither the content nor the domain name is in danger of being lost. I'll get it back up and running again today.

Check out what's become of syndicalist.org haha

"Syndicalist Payday Loans"

An anarchist overall costs may well study the particular robbery of our own job with the bosses, your squandering involving sociable sources with the express, as well as the programs in which the actual employers manipulate markets, financing and production to increase his or her income also to pit employees in different parts of the entire world against the other. And also, most importantly, a great anarchist overall costs would likely tackle by itself to the issues associated with keeping economic activity in the ground-breaking situation, and to the monetary preparations which could assist a free of charge culture.

The site you link and quote from has been hacked and taken over. this is not a legit anarcho-syndicalist site.

I seek unity with all Anarchists of all economic philosophical persuasions. No matter the differences we have philosophically, I think we all agree on the understanding that the state is the enemy.
