”Anarchists are opposed to violence; everyone knows that. The main plank of anarchism is the removal of violence from human relations. It is life based on freedom of the individual, without the intervention of the gendarme. For this reason we are the enemies of capitalism which depends on the protection of the gendarme to oblige workers to allow themselves to be exploited–or even to remain idle and go hungry when it is not in the interest of the bosses to exploit them. We are therefore enemies of the State which is the coercive violent organization of society.”
”We are going to inherit the earth . There is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie may blast and burn its own world before it finally leaves the stage of history. We Are not afraid of ruins. We who ploughed the prairies and built the cities can build again, only better next time. We carry a new world, here in our hearts. That world is growing this minute.”
”The star of revolution will rise high above the streets of Moscow, from a sea of blood and fire, and turn into a lodestar to lead a liberated humanity”
”The great are great only because we are on our knees. Let us rise!”

Internasjonal anarkist kommunist erklæring vedrørende den globale økonomiske krisen og G20 møtet fra Alternative Libertaire (Frankrike), Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici (Italia), Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group (Australia) og Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (South Africa).
Anarchist Communist Statement On The Global Economic Crisis And G20 Meeting:
1. The current crisis is typical of the crises that regularly appear in the capitalist economy. «Overproduction», speculation and subsequent collapse are inherent to the system. (As Alexander Berkman and others have pointed out, what capitalist economists call overproduction is actually underconsumption: capitalism prevents large numbers of people from fulfilling their needs, and so undermines its own markets.)
2. Any solution to the crisis prepared by capitalists and governments will remain a solution within capitalism. It will not be a solution for the popular classes. Indeed, as in every crisis, the workers and the poor are paying – while financial capital is being bailed out with huge sums. This is likely to continue. No change within capitalism can resolve the problems of the popular classes; still less can such a solution be expected from individual politicians, such as Barack Obama. The most such politicians can do is play a part in offering the capitalists a way out, and perhaps in throwing the working class some crumbs.
3. The bank bailouts show not only whose interests the state serves, but the hollowness of capitalist commitment to free markets. Throughout history, capitalists have stood for markets when it suits them, and state regulation and subsidies when they need it. Capitalism could never have existed without state support.
4. In the US, the UK and elsewhere, the bailouts have taken the form of nationalisation of troubled financial institutions – with the full support of capital. This shows that capitalists have no fundamental problem with state ownership, and that nationalisation has nothing to do with socialism. It can also be a method of screwing the working class. We ourselves, not the state, need to take control of the economy.
5. Owing to the globalisation of capital under neo-liberalism, the ruling class recognises that the solution must be global. The G20 is meeting from 15 November to discuss the crisis. This is significant. The rulers of the US, Europe and Japan are coming to realise that they cannot handle the crisis on their own; that they need, not only one another, but other powers, notably China (which is emerging as a top industrial producer, and is on its way to becoming the world’s third-biggest economy). India, Brazil and other «emerging» economies will have seats at the table. This may mark a recognition – under discussion for some years – that the G8 alone are no longer the world’s economic decision makers. It is likely to signal a shift in the running of the global economic system.
6. We place no hopes in the inclusion of new capitalist powers. China’s rulers may claim to be socialist; others, such as Lula of Brazil and Motlanthe of South Africa, may present themselves at times as champions of the poor. But in fact, all are defenders of capitalism, exploiters and oppressors of the people of their own countries, and, increasingly, imperialist or sub-imperialist exploiters of the people of other countries.
7. If the crisis is to lead to anything other than complete defeat for the global popular classes, poverty, exploitation and war, the popular classes must mobilise. We must demand bailouts, not for the capitalists, but for us. We anarchist communists will fight for those who got homes on subprime mortgages to be bailed out and keep their homes. We will continue to engage in and support struggles for jobs with better wages and shorter hours, housing, services, health services, welfare and education, protection of the environment. We fight for an end to imperialist wars and to repression of our class and its struggles.
8. We present these demands in response to the G20 meeting, and will continue to present them in the future. Through such demands, and through direct action to bring them about, we will work towards building a global movement of the popular classes that can put an end to capitalism, the state and the crises they create.
Anarkisme (fra gresk ἀν (an), «uten» og ἄρχειν (arkhin), «å herske» og ισμός (ismos) (fra stammen -ιζειν), «uten herskere») er en politisk og filosofisk bevegelse som går inn for å fjerne, eller i stor grad minske, alle former for maktstrukturer.
Anarkistene i Norge i dag er løst organisert. Følgende prosjekter er relatert til anarkisme eller anarkister:
Hausmania – Mange anarkister er involvert i Kulturhuset Hausmania i Oslo. Bokkafeen Humla og filmkollektivet Spis de Rike holder til her, samt at Indymedia også pleide å ha møter der. I tillegg ligger de autonome bokollektivene Vestbredden og H42 i samme kvartal som Hausmania. Disse er bebodd av anarkister og styrt gjennom direkte demokrati. Punkscenen Barrikaden ligger i kjelleren på Vestbredden.
Blitz – Blitz er stort sett et anarkistisk prosjekt. Anti-Fascistisk Aksjon var på 90-tallet det mest aktive anarkistiske miljøet i Norge selv om det ikke var erklært anarkistisk. Bestod også av mange kommunister og lignende.
Gateavisa – Er Norges eldste anarkistiske avis. Gateavisa holder hus i Hjelmsgate 3. Her har også Frihetlig forum møter relativt jevnlig. Frihetlig forum er en liten gruppe anarkister, frihetlige sosialister og lignende som møtes for å diskutere teori. De står bak frihetlig.org. I Hjelmsgate ligger ogsà den anarkistiske bokkaféen Jaap Van Huysmanns Minde.
UFFA – UFFA-hus (UFFA=Ungdom For Fri Aktivitet) er Trondheims svar på Blitz og faktisk et halvt år eldre. Aktivistene på huset er stort sett anarkister og huset er styrt etter anarkistiske prinsipper. Inneholder blant annet en vegetarkafé, bokkafé, en punkfanzine (Dønk Zine) med en politisk og anarkistisk profil, filmkollektivet Spis De Rike, avd. Trondheim m.m.
Svartlamon – Svartlamon er en liten bydel i Trondheim med ca. 200 innbyggere. Rivningstruet av kommunen på 90-tallet. Ble til slutt fredet etter lang kamp. Mange av bydelens innbyggere er anarkister og bydelen er styrt gjennom direkte demokrati pà bydelens månedlige allmøter. Beboere på Svartlamon startet på 90-tallet den anarkistiske organisasjonen Folkemakt som nå ligger nede. I bydelen ligger også den anarkistiske bokkaféen Ivar Matlaus.
Hurdalsjøen økologiske landsby – Økolandsby styrt etter konsensusprinsippet. Prøver å bygge et anarkistisk idealsamfunn på den norske landsbygda. Ikke uttalte anarkister.
Humla is a political and cultural laboratory aimed at promoting freedom of politics, activism, press, software and all people. We provide resources such as computers with free software and free internet access, info, books, meeting space, creative impulse and panzercoffee. The H.U.M.L.A. collective organizes through flat structures and decentralized networks, reclaiming the right to manifest social change through self-organization outside of political institutions. H.U.M.L.A. recognizes a diversity of tactics and approaches to acheiving social change, from passive resistance to confrontational, non-violent direct action.
