Joining

I would like to join the movement however the e-mail address given on the website is not working for me. Could someone please tell me the best way to go about this?

I live in the West Midlands.

Matty, if you email join@afed.org.uk, they can sort you out.

it would help if you described what you thought the movement was and what your political beliefs are. there are many organisations and movements that people on this board subscribe to.

He's on the AF forum, so I take it he means that.

Short of applying to join right away, there is also birmingham [at] afed.org.uk email address where you can make contact with AF members in West Midlands for a chat.

For anyone else who is interested, all AF contact points for groups and regions are here:

Which address? The 'join 'one, the 'info' one or the birmingham one?

Weird, you could try the info one, or just PM your email to one of the AF comrades on this forum.

I am interested in joining the AF. I dont really know what activities the AF is involved in. I am dubious about joining because I am worried that the AF is focussed on occupations, squats and demos; things I am not really interested in. I am more interested in discussing anarchist ideas, workplace organising and (as an aspiring writer and journalist) disseminating and popularising anarchist ideas and principles. As I have said I am largely ignorant of what the AF actually do. Maybe I should just come along to a meeting and see if I like it. Sorry for the moan.

Where do you live? If you are near one of our groups or contacts you could meet up with us. You'll find that the AF is interested in workplace organising and disseminating and discussing anarchist ideas. You can also read our new industrial strategy document at http://libcom.org/library/frontline-anarchists-work.

I live in Manchester/Salford. Maybe I should just meet up with one of your organisers and have a talk with them?

Me and Knighrose are in the Manchester group, we'd be happy to meet up - you sound like you're on the same page as the AF in terms of focus. Our activities locally at the moment have mainly been propaganda based, holding public meetings and distroing propaganda, but we've had a presence on recent demos around immigration recently and did a fair bit of work around putting an internationalist perspective out on the Gaza war demos a bit ago. We're also looking to set up an action group around the recession that can have organisation and propaganda in place should anything kick off in Manchester as it has in other parts of the country recently. As an organisation we do have a focus on workplace and social wage struggles, and we have members who have been involved in the Visteon support group and the Glasgow school occupations, along with campaigns and organising in the workplaces where they're present.

and we'll be on the Manchester May 4th March - it starts at 12.30 from All saints and goes to Castlefield. We'll be the contingent with the red and black flags - so it's a chance to meet us then. Otherwise send an email to meetings[@]af-north.org and Django will sort out meeting up with you.

Discussing anarchist ideas, workplace organising and disseminating anarchist ideas and principles is totally a (major) part of what we do. Have you read Resistance or Organise?
