We are a revolutionary labour movement that uses as its only means of struggle, direct action in all its forms – occupations, strikes, boycotts, sabotage, the general strike, etc. We are independent from all reformist and hierarchical unions and political parties, and we are creating an alternative to these and to existing society. We do not seek to gain political power, but rather to see it distributed equally amongst all.
We are a network of anarcho-syndicalists practicing co-operation and mutual aid. We have an equal part in the making of decisions. Responsibilities within the network are subject to agreement by the members.
We are engaged in struggle, where we work and where we live, to develop self-managed production, distribution and servicing for the world community, to meet human needs rather than profit. We give solidarity to others in these struggles.
We are fighting to abolish all authoritarian institutions such as the State (including its communist variety), capitalism, patriarchy and all hierarchical and oppressive divisions between people.
We have no country and are organized on an international basis in opposition to oppression everywhere. The ASN is striving to build a viable revolutionary Syndicalist movement in Australia as part of a world wide movement able to meet the challenge of the global employer offensive.
