IOPS has no spokespersons – yet. No one is mandated to speak on behalf of IOPS. I think it is time to change that. How? In 2003, Andrej Grubacic held a speech entitled Towards Another Anarchism, in which he read an outline of a new anarchist international he had been given to the audience.

Rod has said he’d like to start working on improving the software of our website system. In fact, he has already recently made some improvements and fixed a couple of annoying bugs.

Appropriate measures will be needed to ensure that dues and donations can be received.  The team will consist of three members, who together decide how…

As members of an organisation striving for a participatory society shouldn't we fight against these free-trade (TTP-TTIP-CETA-TISA) agreements that are undermining democracy and giving all power to multinational organisations ?
