What is Anarchism?

What is Anarchism?
Anarchism is a political tradition that argues for struggle against all forms of oppression, hierarchy and domination. Anarchists are revolutionary, meaning that they aim to completely eradicate all coercive relationships, structures and institutions such as racism, sexism, capitalism and the state. Anarchists work to create a society based on equality, mutual aid, co­operation and horizontal relationships.
Anarchist history is rich and full of vibrant movements and struggles. Feminist, disability, labour, queer, anti­racist and anti­colonial struggles have all been influenced by and influenced the development of anarchism as a political theory and movement. This means that anarchism is a lived and constantly developing political theory with people experimenting in different ways to put their politics to practice.
