Anarcho-syndicalism is a program of political organization founded on the principles of workers' self-management, direct democracy, and mutual aid. As anarchists, anarcho-syndicalists pursue the abolition of all systems of domination and exploitation - be they economic as with capitalism; political as with the state, bureaucracies, and prisons; or social as with misogyny, racism, and social oppressions; and as syndicalists, anarcho-syndicalists seek to create a society managed collectively and democratically by everyone who inhabits it. Anarcho-syndicalists believe there should be no separation between those who inhabit society and those who govern society - we assert that all those who inhabit society should govern society, cooperatively.

One hundred years ago today, striking mine workers and their families in Ludlow, Colorado were indiscriminately slaughtered by a company-hired militia and the state’s National Guard in what would be known as the Ludlow Massacre. In response, the United Mine Workers of America encouraged workers to arm themselves, resulting in 700-1,000 armed miners storming and occupying mines throughout the area.
