Collective Autonomy Directory

The directory is a repertory of all the groups we contacted who are organized along the lines of self-management or what is called “collective autonomy”. The chief criterion used to determine if a group is self-managed is horizontal and consensual decision-making based on direct and/or participatory democracy. A description of each collective is provided along with contact information and symbols identifying the characteristics used by the group to define itself. All groups included in the directory have approved what is said here about them and they have the responsibility to contact us if updates are needed.

If you belong to (or know of) a group that ought to be included in the Collective Autonomy Directory, don’t hesitate to let us know! You can use this form to contact us.

Thanks!

This collective produces a radio show on CKIA 88.3 FM. The objective of the show is to allow women to speak for themselves as women, to demystify the anti-authoritarian movement (anarchy, social ecology, coloured people’s feminism, etc.) and to make different social struggles, as well as women artists, known. Combining theoretical analysis with interviews from the ground, Ainsi squattent-elles presents pieces on self-care, poetry readings, and experiences of self-organization here and elsewhere.

The Quebec City chapter of Anti-Racist Action gathers information on fascist/neo-Nazi/sexist/ homophobic individuals and groups with the aim of having a presence at their public events. ARA-Quebec also engages in anti-sectarian defence of other anti-fascist groups and individuals. In addition to this front-line work, ARA-Quebec has already produced several publications and occasionally organizes anti-racist concerts.

An anti-sectarian collective that mostly works against racism, but also against all forms of discrimination. It aims to act as an information network on fascist and neo-Nazi movements. The collective attempts to boycott neo-Nazi spaces and events in order to destroy their visibility and opportunities for recruitment. The Montreal collective specifically opposes Israeli colonization (by the state of Israel) of Palestinian lands and the apartheid it has created.
