About Organise!

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! Deadline for the next issue is 18th September 2009. 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.

Try ONLINE ORDERING of Organise! using Paypal (both UK and overseas orders).
