This panel, made up of members of the Northeastern Federation of Anarcho-Communists (NEFAC), will discuss anarchist organizing -- emphasizing federation structures made up of collectives or regional branches. Panelists will examine the comparative drawbacks that contemporary coalitions, networks, and ad hoc activist groups present, and assert the advantages of a member-based federation that relies on collective responsibility and mutual aid. Utilizing their own experience with the recently formed NEFAC, panelists will look at collectives based on tactical and theoretical unity, as well as personal trust and camaraderie, as a way to sustain struggles at the local level and put forward a clear antiauthoritarian, class-based analysis as a starting point. They will also explore federating within cities and by regions as a way to broaden resistance to the present system and begin to create revolutionary alternatives.

This talk was presented at the third Renewing the Anarchist Tradition conference, at the Institute for Social Ecology, August 2001.
