United StatesThe Northeast Anarchist Network is a horizontal network linking those in
the Northeast region of North America committed to anti-authoritarian,
anti-capitalist, and anti-oppressive struggles. The Network (NEaN) is
based on the voluntary association of autonomous local groups,
collectives, assemblies, and individuals committed to these aims. NEaN has
been in formation since February 2007 and has thus far seen 4 region-wide
general assemblies and various sub-regional gatherings with representation
from Maine to Pittsburgh and Cape Cod to Syracuse.
Through this process we have built relationships and structures through
which to support our own local struggles, but also create region-wide
campaigns and working groups. The coming assembly will solidify these
structures and region-wide committees through which we function, and
encourage more collectives to officially affiliate with the Network.
As a network, we support and are informed by our various identity based
caucuses. These caucuses are designed as safe spaces for historically
marginalized groups through which we may empower our voices, in what some
may find to be intimidating discussions and actions. Our caucuses have
included in the past, but are not limited to, people of color,
woman-identified/female bodied, genderqueer, working-class/poor folks, and
