About International of Anarchist Federations
The International of Anarchist Federations (French: Internationale des Fédérations Anarchistes; abbreviated IAF/IFA) was founded during an international anarchist conference in Carrara in 1968 by the three existing European federations of France, Italy and Spain as well as the Bulgarian federation in French exile. Other groups were also present in the formation of the IAF, such as the now defunct London Federation of Anarchists who took part in the preparation for the conference in 1968. According to Time magazine, before the first IAF conference in Carrara could begin, firemen were called to check the venue for bombs. The Carrara congress was a response to a congress held in London from June to August 1958 which "recreated a certain dynamism and wish towards the organizational aspiration of international anarchism".
The IAF has since aimed to build and improve strong and active international anarchist structures. The federations associated with IAF believe that such an organization is necessary to co-ordinate their international work and efficiently co-operate towards their mutual aims.
In order to further improve the quality of exchange and cooperation, IAF also keeps close contact with other anarchist organizations, such as the International Workers' Association (IWA), an international association of anarcho-syndicalist organizations and unions. The IAF contains many anarchist-communist federations and individuals.
