We are being exploited. Our environment is burning, and parliamentary politics offers us no hope of change or relief.
But what can we do about it?
On our own, nothing. As individuals we are practically helpless. This is why capitalist society is organised in such a way as to undermine any attempt at cooperation and mutual aid between ordinary people.
But collectively the working class is not only the biggest part of society but it is also the one with the skills needed to produce the things we need to live and essential services for survival. Bosses, on the other hand, only have the skills needed to exploit and rob us, while politicians have the skills to fool people.
If the working class was to organise along the right set of principles and ideals, then there is no reason why working people shouldn’t be able to create a free and equal society, without the need for bosses and politicians. Those principles we are talking about are anarchist communist principles and the Anarchist Communist Group are dedicated to spreading them.
The failure of anarchist communist ideas to make progress in this time of ongoing crisis is, in the main, due to part due to years of working class defeat, de-politicisation and demoralisation. But in part, it is also down to a lack of organisation by anarchists. As much as the working class united can remake society, revolutionary anarchists united with anarchist communist ideas can only have greater influence within the working class.
Anarchists together can not only multiply the reach of our propaganda and influence within other active and more class conscious sections of the working class, but we also benefit collectively from our individual strengths and experience. It is meaningless to call oneself an anarchist if we do not work to spread anarchist ideas and apply anarchist principles, and the best way to do this is within an anarchist organisation.
The Anarchist Communist Group (ACG) is a revolutionary anarchist communist organisation made up of local groups and individuals who seek a complete transformation of society, and the creation of anarchist communism.
We are a young organisation, less than a year old, but we are active in the struggle against capitalist exploitation and the abuses of the state and we fight or a free communist society.
