organise magazine
Organise! Magazine of the AF

For current and future Organise! and information about ordering visit our newer website at http://www.afed.org.uk

ORGANISE! is the magazine of the Anarchist Federation, published in order to develop anarchist communist ideas. It aims to give a clear anarchist viewpoint on contemporary issues, and initiate debates on areas not normally covered by agitational journals. All articles in the magazine are by AF members unless signed. Some reflect AF policy and others open up debate in undiscussed areas, helping us to develop our ideas further. We welcome contributions of articles to Organise! . As long as they don't conflict with our Aims and Principles we will endeavour to publish them. Letters, of course, need not agree with our A&Ps at all.

ORGANISE 92! IS OUT [Winter 2019]. Download Issue 92 Summer 2019. See live website for more details.
