What Do Anarchists Do

The media is fond of mischaracterizing anarchists, turning us into all sorts of boogeymen -- nihilistic terrorists, anti-technology dimwits, chaos-mongering hooligans, maniacal vandals -- to the extent that, at least in the American media, "anarchist" is a dirty word, representing an unreasonable "extremist" point-of-view.

Sacco & Vanzetti

Nicola Sacco was born in Italy and emigrated to the United States in 1908. With Bartolomeo Vanzetti he was arrested on charges of murdering a shoe factory paymaster and guard at South Braintree, Massachusetts. They were tried and convicted in an atmosphere of anti-radical hysteria. The trial ended July 14, 1921, and they were electrocuted August 23, 1927. During the years of their incarceration, widespread doubt of their guilt reached worldwide proportions resulting in protest. Many books and articles, written by those in and out of the legal profession, have left detailed accounts of one of the most controversial and best known cases in United States history.

About Us

Infoshop was founded in December 1995 as the Mid-Atlantic Infoshop. We were one of the first websites featuring political content and one of the first online-only news websites. The Mid-Atlantic Infoshop website was initially envisioned as an online resource to supplement the information resources being provided by a physical infoshop in Washington, DC called the Beehive Infoshop. That infoshop closed its door a few years after MAI went online, but MAI eventually became Infoshop.org and evolved into the most visited anarchist news and information resource on the Internet.

Movement Democracy

One of the things that became clear after the Seattle protests was how important democracy and transparency are to groups involved in the movements for social change. The old paradigm of hierarchical, top-down organizations was overturned and everybody was talking about consensus and spokescouncils. These democractic group processes don't come easy, especially for those of us who were raised in individualistic, competitive Western societies.

Terrorism

There is much talk about terrorism these days, in the wake of the 9-11 attacks, but there is plenty of confusion about what terrorism really is. Anarchists have been mistakenly called terrorists for a long time. This page will examine what terrorism is and isn't. It may turn out that "terrorism" is an emotional word with no value.

Our working definition of terrorism:

Violent actions by states or non-state actors against random people for political goals. This would include the bombing of people on a bus, the blowing up of a plane, or the mining of a Nicaraguan harbor by the U.S. government.
