The following Points of Unity come from the Noreaster, the “official quarterly of the Northeast Anarchist Network”. They’re a kind of definition of what it means to be an anarchist, at least for this particular group:
1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and authoritarianism.
2. A rejection of all forms and systems of domination. Embracing the full dignity of all.
3. An attitude of active resistance toward all state, corporate and other oppressive institutions.
4. A call to direct action, support for emancipatory social movements, advocating for the liberation of all, as well as the construction of local alternatives.
5. An organizational philosophy based on decentralization and autonomy. This network is specifically inclusive of all Anarchist struggles and supports all of them as long as they adhere to these Points of Unity, even though not everyone in the Network might consider a particular struggle a priority. Anarchists must show solidarity with each other’s struggles as a principle of revolutionary necessity. In order to embody these values, we see the need for an Anarchist social revolution.
How do these points compare with your own political/activist philosophy?
