NW ANARCHIST-COMMUNIST ORGANIZING NETWORK (NWACON) NWan-comm list
Greetings to all,
After some discussion, and looking at the example of the NEFAC, we have set up a list in order to try to start a process
to create a nw federation. We thought that such a process may work best by first creating a network so that there can be the needed discussion, among all who wish to take part, on how such a federation would look like and how it could meet our common needs. One of the good examples that the NEFAC has set for us is the creation of a regional federation that does not recognize political borders. Thus we hope for the involvement of folks from both sides of the Canadian/U.S. political border.
We also want to state that this new list and network does not mean that anyone is seeking to replace other lists, or that we are no longer willing to work with other groups, projects or help with other events. Federation organizing is part of the ideas of anarchist-communitism and all this should be looked upon is our
attempt to organize our ideas. Thank you.
The list for the NW Anarchist-Communist Organizing Network (NWACON) is open to all who are interested in helping to build a NW Anarchist-Communist Federation. Such a federation would included the different means of anarchist-communist organizing, including class struggle (including Anarcho-Syndicalists), anti-racism, anti-sexism and other forms of organizing against oppression and exploitation, and Anarchist-Communist
based environmentalism and anti-war activism.
There are a few rules and protocal to the list, to keep the discussion on point and to the topic.
1) Please post only those things related to the list topic. This includes discussion, criticism, events of interest to us, and news that directly affects our method of organization.
2) This list is moderated by John P. ( firstname.lastname@example.org). The moderator may unsubscibe individuals who repeatedly abuse the list protocals, engage in personal attacks (i.e. name calling, bad jacketing, etc), but criticism is allowed and encouraged--keep it respectful. If the moderator is abusing the fuction then list members may vote no confidence through the polling
feature on yahoogroups or create a new list and unsubscribe from the current one. Now that's democracy.
3) The main goal is to deal with anarcho-communist organization and action. Debates about the whether or not we should organize is not the topic of this list; we are here because we want to organize and change society.
4) By subscribing to this list you are agreeing to the above.
