The Workers Solidarity Alliance is an anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian
organization of militants and organizers who believe that working
people can build a new and better world based on the principles of
solidarity and self-management.
Our organization was founded in 1984 out of several older organizations,
heavily influenced and associating with the ideas and traditions of
anarcho-syndicalism. These ideas, as well as those of from the libertarian
socialist and anarchist-communist traditions, form the current WSA basis
Although there have been many high ups and low
downs, the WSA has consistently held true to the principle of solidarity and our
orientation to the working class.
Our view is that a better society will be brought about only by working
people building their own self-managed mass organizations. We believe the
working class is in a prime position to overthrow the power of the
bosses, and we participate in current struggles and in existing unions
and independent unions to fight for our rights in the here and now,
while working to build a self-managedworking-class movement.
We see fights against racism, patriarchy,
homophobia etc. as essential elements of the struggle for an
egalitarian society. We advocate the development of anti-authoritarian political organization where
membership is based on a shared political perspective. Political ideas
need to be informed by practical experience, and, through organization,
militants can avoid isolation and get together for common political work. We do
not, however, claim to have the final “correct line” or all the answers.
Four Star Anarchist Organization
Four Star Anarchist Organization (4*@O) began in 2008, when a group of anarchists decided it was time to recreate an organized anarcho-communist presence in Chicago. Our original basis for unity was the Anarkismo statement, but we have since finalized and established our own guiding Statement of Principles.
The name “Four Star” is a reference to the stars on the Chicago flag and indicates our intention to connect to local social struggles. We describe ourselves as an “anarchist organization” because we believe anarchist principles such as mutual aid, direct democracy, and direct action are effective when applied towards organizing and transforming social institutions.
Wild Rose Collective
Wild Rose Collective is an anarchist organization based in Iowa City, IA. We are workers, students, parents, organizers and activists in and around this eastern Iowa university town. We are influenced by currents of Anarcho-Syndicalism, Anarchist Communism, and aspects of Marxism.
Anarchism, as we understand it, is a political theory based in establishing a society that is free from political, social and economic hierarchies. It will be brought about by the struggle between the vast, diverse working class majority of society and the tiny minority that currently rules.
We see this struggle as being waged primarily through social movements, and advocate for anti-oppressive and directly democratic forms of organizing within them. We oppose capitalism, with its drive for profits over the well-being of people and the environment, and the maintaining of social and material inequality as the basis for the capitalists’ profits. We oppose the state, and see no solutions by working within the so-called representative democratic system for social liberation.
