Azanian Anarchist Alliance – undated -“Anarchy and Organisation: For all those that think anarchism is purely a personal thing”

This text, written in 1991 or 1992, was a response to people who viewed “anarchism” as a personal lifestyle choice and/ or opposed formal organisation. It argued that, on the contrary, “Anarchism is not just a way of living one’s life. It is the most radical espousal of total social revolution. Anarchists wish to create a society which is libertarian, classless and stateless… Anarchism begins when people organise to change the world…” The Azanian Anarchist Alliance favoured, instead, a revolutionary organisation, and also published some texts influenced by Platformism: Revolutionary Organisations (based on a chapter from Class War, Unfinished Business) and The Role of the Revolutionary Organisation (by the Anarchist Communist Federation) (see here).
