    On the 140th Anniversary of the Founding of the Anti-Authoritarian International in St Imier Switzerland

    This year marks the 140th anniversary of the founding of the Anti-Authoritarian International . Following moves by Marx and his followers to expell two leading anarchists , Mikhail Bakunin and James Guillaume, from the First International, the first genuine intertational working class organisation, the Jura section in Switzerland, supported by the Italian and Spanish sections, revolted agaist the se bureaucratic moves and convened a conference. They were soon joined by other sections equally dismayed by these moves and Marx’s high handed decision to move the General Council of the First International away from Europe to New York. These developments have left a permanent mark on the socialist and workers movements.

    Thousands of anarchists will be attending a massive celebration of the founding of the Anti-Authoritarian International in StImier itself, with round tables, public meetings, music concerts, film shows, plays etc.

    this meeting will give an account of the original events and give details of the coming celebrations. all welcome.
