A moment of Openness
We are Communists. We are against capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, heterosexism, imperialism, ableism and the state. We recognize the historical truths of Anarchism and Marxism, while also recognizing their limits. We are anti – oppression, anti – authority and anti – hierarchy. We fight for Autonomous thinking and action. We stand for the self-organization of the Proletarian Class. The Proletariat, broadly defined as those who rely overwhelmingly on waged work, debt, or ‘social security’ payments to get by or are otherwise propertyless – students, homeless, etc. We fight for a democratic self – managed society in harmony with the earth and with its animals, based on common ownership of the means of production and distribution. We are Internationalist and support no movements for National Liberation understanding that such a movement would only create new bondage for the working person.
We are a Portland based Libertarian Communist Collective dedicated towards advancing Class Struggle in Everyday life towards an Anarchist – Communist end. We consider ourselves in the tradition of Class Struggle Anarchism and Left-Wing Communism and draw inspiration in our writtings from thinkers like Karl Marx, Peter Kropotkin, Nestor Makhno, Daniel De Leon, Rosa Luxemburg, Rudolf Rocker, Anton Pannekoek, Amadeo Bordiga, CLR James and countless others.
We issue a monthly zine of Communist – Anarchist politics, struggles and tactics in the Portland area called “Let’s Break their Haughty Power”.
