About Armenian Libertarian-Socialist Movement

Over the years we have met many Armenian anarchists and like-minded intellectuals. It was also exciting to find out that there is an organized “Autonom” movement in Yerevan (Proryv – “Breakthrough”), though their website has been discontinued. And we have recently found out that the group has been violently crushed in our beloved “Democratic” Republic. We have also met many socialists and communists, who adopt a critical view of dictatorial communism; we have met many like-minded intellectuals… many Greens, many feminists, many left-wing activists, many avant-garde artists and intellectuals… The only thing is that they are not only in Armenia, but also spread across the globe – “the Greater Armenia”. In short, we are starting this website with knowledge that there are many people out there sympathetic to our ideas. We want to create this website as a sort of convergence point – a Cyber-HQ and as a focal point to help us come together, discuss and develop our politics… first as a cyber-commune and then, hopefully, gradually grow into a political force.

Our Goals: To spark a mass Movement that would not be led by a single individual or a concentrated decision-making organ, but guided by a Platform/Manifesto and a set of principles and ethics; a Movement that would not be organized hierarchically, but horizontally (rhizomatically) — with each cell operating independently, but toward the realization of the same Vision. Our Vision: a transformed Armenia as a Federated Polity of Directly-Democratic Hamainqs and Unions as its political structure; where Socialist and Communitarian social values of Solidarity and Respect prevail; where worker-owned cooperative, collectivist and syndicalist structures dominate the economy (though don’t exclude othe...
