Who We Are

London AF is a local group of the Anarchist Federation

We describe ourselves as anarchist communists, anarchists and revolutionary class struggle anarchists, and operate as a membership organisation. The London group consists of members and non-members, so feel free to work and collaborate with us without officially joining.

What is anarchism?

Anarchism advocates the abolition of the state and capitalism, because they are both oppressive structures, and is in favour of replacing them with horizontal networks based on voluntary associations and working class self-management.

Central to our liberation is the advocating of direct action by solving our problems directly with strikes, occupations, and mutual aid instead of hoping the government solves out problems for us, strengthening solidarity amongst our class, and practicing prefigurative politics by struggle against oppressions like racism and sexism in the here and now. We reject parliamentary politics and party building exercises because these mimic the features of existing society that we object to.

We are heavily influenced by the ideas of Errico Malatesta, Nestor Makhno, Peter Kropotkin, Emma Goldman and a host of other revolutionary thinkers and our tradition is informed from a diverse range of struggles from the important revolutionary movements of the twentieth century, through to the Poll Tax and women’s and gay rights movement of recent times.

We fight for a militant and unified anarchist movement and we urge those who agree with our aims and principles to join us.
