Anarchist Organizing Assembly — NYC


These last few years have been important for the anarchist struggle. In the US, the reaction to police executions have manifested in riotous uprisings and the Black Lives Matter movement, both of which have exposed a new generation of people who defiantly reject subjugation and reformist solutions. A hunger for new social proposals is visibly spreading city to city, hood to hood. The time has never been more pressing for a complete shift in how revolutionary struggle is manifested.

Simultaneously, one of the most massive anarchist-inspired societies has come to fruition: the decentralized region of Rojava. While Rojavans engage in bottom-up, liberatory social practices, their fighters have successfully defended the Cantons against the brutal, reactionary IS. For anarchists around the world, the councils and communes they have instituted have become pragmatic examples for our own communities.

Anarchist resistance in New York has been growing at a steady pace. Through the infrastructure of the Base, new anarchists have gotten involved and together we’ve been able to generate wider public knowledge about radical left politics, while laying the foundations for new social organizations.

We are eager to expand the range of these projects.

So many anarchists with new ideas pass through the space, but it is often by chance that they stumble upon collaborators. This anarchist assembly is intended to be a forum to allow organizers who have similar ideas to find each other. We invite participants in longstanding NYC anarchist projects to present their work as well as those with new project ideas.

If this assembly functions well, the result could be a new burst of energy for the anarchist struggle in New York and manifest a formidable force to our political opposition.

The Brooklyn Base

The Base is an anarchist political center in Bushwick, Brooklyn, committed to the dissemination of revolutionary left and anarchist ideas and organizing. The mission of the space is to spread ideas and practices to the broader populace and provide a place where individuals can learn, grow, and organize outside of traditional activist and educational institutions. We will provide a foundation for fostering the ideas and theory of people who have either a preliminary background in political thought, or who have not grappled with political theory at any level. Furthermore, we will establish a framework where creative modes of sharing will be encouraged, with the goal of spreading these modes beyond the confines of the space itself. We intend to establish a sociopolitical model in New York City where participants can create projects that are expansive and creative. Lastly, this will be a place where people can grapple with, organize, and find solutions to issues that affect their living situation in a constructive environment.
