This message was sent via e-mail at the conclusion of a tour of the Northwest by Irish anarchist Andrew Flood
Thanks for turning out to Andrew Flood’s Northwest tour on Building a Popular Anarchism in Ireland, sponsored by Class Action Alliance. It was a great success. Here in Washington and Oregon, several of us are working on forming an organization inspired by such groups as Common Cause in Ontario and the Workers Solidarity Movement in Ireland.
At the presentation, you probably received a copy of the Anarkismo editorial statement (if not, please look here). We hope you will take some time to read the statement and decide if you agree with it, and we also recommend you do some research into other organizations based on those principles, such as the ones mentioned above, as well as the FdCA in Italy, the OCL in Chile, the ZACF in South Africa and others. If this model of organization appeals to you, then we invite you to join us at the founding conference for Class Action Alliance in Olympia on June 7th.
At the founding conference, we plan to cover such items as establishing our constitution, aims and principles, possible allies, and dues level. We invite you to read the excellent article on dues in the most recent issue of Linchpin here (If you feel there are obstacles that might prevent you from being able to attend the conference, please contact us, as we may be able to work things out).
If you decide you are not interested in joining Class Action Alliance, but may wish to work with us on common projects as either an individual or organization, please keep in contact via email and our website, as we have keen interest in forging alliances with people and groups that have common goals.
