Call to Participate


Decentralized Anti-Authoritarian Gatherings during 2022

Given the ease with which states are imposing unprecedented restrictions on freedoms, we do not want to wait until 2023 to collectively reflect on the issues that matter to us, including the political developments of recent years. We want to meet to continue to undo the illusions that imprison us, to think together about what we can do and to form new hopes for the future.

This is why we propose this year, in the name of the 150th anniversary of the Congress of St-Imier, Decentralized International Gatherings. We invite all individuals, anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian anarchist collectives to organize in their respective locations, on the dates of their choice, events of their own creation, federated around a common poster that can be modified.

Anarchy 2023 - St-Imier July 27-30

International Anti-Authoritarian Gathering

From 27th to 30st July 2023 a meeting will be held in St-Imier (Jura, CH) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Congress of St-Imier which, in 1872, saw the foundation of the Anti-Authoritarian International, an event marking the birth of the organized anarchist movement.

The event will consist of 4 days of meetings, lectures, concerts, seminars and various other activities. It will be a great opportunity for libertarian supporters, inhabitants of the region and elsewhere, and the general public to meet, debate, share and experience libertarian ideas and practices. It will also be an opportunity for those who have not yet discovered the rich history of this movement to learn about its contributions to social progress and its struggles from previous centuries to the present day.

What are anarchists doing today? What are their ideas, their works, their actions? How have they contributed to world history for more than 150 years? What can we learn from this concept, and why is anarchy more desirable than ever?

Anarchy is not chaos and lack of order at all, but the opposite: it advocates an anti-authoritarian approach and a personal and social organization that promotes the emancipation of all human beings. This means fighting against all forms of oppression, exploitation and imposed authority, seeking to enhance everywhere freedom (absence of domination), equity (absence of privilege) and mutual aid (mutuality).

On this occasion, we would like to welcome participants from all continents. All those interested are invited to contribute to the organization and the success of this meeting in whatever way they find most suitable (sharing information, contributing ideas, joining in art projects, providing material support, etc.).
