I've only skimmed the article so far, but it looks far in advance of
what I generally hear from anarchists here in Melbourne. Maybe because
the socialist left is a lot bigger and more influential than in many
places (in Australia, probably north america too) most of the active
anarchists here are horribly anti-communist, often extremely
individualist, and highly sectarian. I gather that across Europe and
North America this isn't necessarily the case. Are there anarchist
groups that play a constructive role in Canada or the USA? I used to
enjoy reading Love&Rage for example, nothing like that ever came out of
Australia. (although there are good, sane, non-sectarian anarchists
around in unions, Friends Of the Earth, here and there).
