Commemorating the 150th anniversary of the first Anti-authoritarian International, we were meeting in the Swiss Jura mountains from July 19 to 23, 2023. These gatherings brought anarchists together for collective reflection, sharing experiences, and building solidarity across struggles and borders. See our original call for co-organising and our later call for participation for more context.
Check out our FAQ and related pages for more information about how to get to St-Imier, where you find camping and indoor sleeping spaces, vegan or gluten free food and beverages, where to park vehicles, the availability of childcare and help from the care team.

Helping with a financial contribution
Nobody of us is getting payed, we all volunteer. But we need money to cover the infrastructure costs. So, please help to make sure we can cover the costs, also because the resulting surplus will go to the Anarchist Defense Fund!

The International Federalist Association IFA has also launched a crowdfunding for the organisation and the travel of people and collectives who want to come to the Anarchy 2023 gathering in St-Imier this July but can't because of financial issues: helloasso.com/associations/international-federalist-association-ifa Please help out if you can!
Group finance communication to July 10, 2023
Here are the details of the costs involved in organizing the event. The total budget is over CHF 276,000!
In advance of the event we had CHF 41,662.68:
- profits from the Anarchy2022 festival and donations up to December 2022: 13 676.40 CHF
- donations between January and July 2023: 24 600.28 CHF
- crowdfunding: €3,386.00
This leaves us with 234,338 CHF to pay in order to break even.
The principle of the festival is that it is self-financing, meaning that most of the bills have to be paid after the event, thanks to the income generated by free prices and donations during the event.
As a reminder, no one in the organization is paid - we're all volunteers. If there are any profits after the event, they will go entirely to the Anarchist Defense Fund (https://afund.info).
Given the scale of the bills to be paid, we're appealing to your solidarity to ensure we don't go into post-event debt. We therefore encourage you to eat the delicious meals concocted by the kitchen group, to drink in the various bars, to give free prices for internet access, camping, etc., and to make donations if you can.
This is a self-generated event, and we expect participants to take an active role. This is your event. Thank you for your solidarity!
