Who we are?

International Anarchist Defence Fund

Our collective solidarity structure provides support to anarchists around the world who are persecuted or find themselves in a difficult life situation because of their political ideas or activities.

The Anarchist Defence Fund incorporates the mode of solidarity introduced by the International Anti-Fascist Defence Fund which successfully provides similar support to antifascists.

We are a collective structure because anyone who makes an annual donation of $20U.S./€20/£15 can join the decision-making body that decides if a certain request is supported by the fund. Decisions are taken online by consensus, or by a simple majority vote if consensus is not possible.

As an anarchist structure we support an idea of a defense fund with horizontal structure. First of all, because anarchists are always in a risk group and at the same time many other organizations are not supporting them during repressions. Second, because it gives a chance to anyone in our movement to not only rely on existed structures, but to be involved in solidarity directly. We wish a success of A-fund as a structure, an idea and an experiment.

In a world where our enemies are global and are internationally organized, it’s extremely important that we the anarchist are as well. IADF is a key organization in this idea and a tremendous help for organizations and struggles are around the globe. Do not hesitate to join the fund and participate in the coming projects.

We are proud to be part of the decision-making crew of the IADF. Their process is very simple and transparent, it’s direct support here and now. Structures like IADF are also of great help to groups like ours, we can ask them for financial support or forward local activists to the A-Fund if we are experiencing hard times. Don’t hesitate and donate!

Anarchists are opposed to violence. The main plank of anarchism is the removal of violence from human relations. It is life based on the freedom of the individual, without the intervention of the police. For this reason we are enemies of capitalism, which depends on the protection of the police to force workers to allow themsleves to be exploited. We are therefore enemies of the State, which is the coercive, violent organization of society.
– Errico Malatesta
