Iniţiativa Anarho-Sindicalistă din România
The Anarcho-Syndicalist Initiative from Romania (abbreviated IASR), as the name suggests, is an anarcho-syndicalist initiative, created in order to promote social anarchism in general, and anarcho-syndicalism in particular, in Romania.
IASR was founded on Nov. 19, 2010, by a group of anarchists in the city of Constanta. IASR is the expression, resulting from the lack of a libertarian perspective both in the public life of Romania and the labor movement.
An IASR member can be any employee, unemployed, pensioner, retiree or student who agrees with the methods and means of anarcho-syndicalism and accept this pact voluntarily.
Membership is not allowed for:
a) People who have the ability to hire, fire and set wages;
b) Owners of businesses that have employees or people who hold a large stake in a company;
c) Party members;
d) Professionals from military, police, judicial and penal institutions;
e) Elements of the religious hierarchies.
Structure of IASR
IASR is a non-hierarchical, informal group of various social anarchists, united by the strategy and ideas of anarcho-syndicalism. Due to the socio-political circumstances of Romania, IASR is based around a fluid and constantly evolving informal organization, which has the ability to be active but also avoid the repressive nature of the Romanian state.
IASR primarily aims to popularize and promote social anarchism throughout the Romanian working class, thus trying to bring together a nucleus of like-minded people that can actively educate, organize and agitate both in communities and workplaces. The long term aim of IASR is the creation of a union confederation based around the principles and ideas of anarcho-syndicalism.
