WHAT IS AUTONOMY AND SOLIDARITY?
Autonomy and Solidarity formed in September 2003 as a
network of anti-capitalist activists across Canada
interested in discussing and making contributions to a
series of fundamental questions and debates concerning
revolutionary movements nationally and globally.
Autonomy & Solidarity launched its website
http://auto_sol.tao.ca as a way to provide information
and anti-capitalist perspectives to activists. In just
over a year, over 1100 people have registered as users
of the site, and the site features a regular flow of
news and analysis with special features on resistance
to occupation and imperialism in Iraq, Kanehsatake,
and Haiti. There are A&S members in Toronto, Guelph,
Vancouver and Sudbury. If you would like to find out
