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.

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
