The complete online text of Vadim Damier's superb critical study of anarcho-syndicalism in the last century which reveals a history of struggle which has often been neglected but holds many valuable lessons for the present.

Just curious, how would most of you describe your syndicalism? Mine is influenced by anarchism.....and a strong belief that syndicalism (the idea) is usually the main form of struggle as workers rise or need effective means of struggle and organization "from below".
While I'm no marxist, the author Hobson wrote an article whose title I always liked because it summed up the organic nature of syndicalism ("Syndicalism without the syndicalists").
Matthew wrote: "One of my friends (and fellow union members) is a socialist (member of the FSP). He, and other socialists, always criticize anarchists for not having a plan or realistic strategy/goals."
You know, it's sot of like the dog chasing its tail. When we present reasonable arguments, make constructive contributions, well, the authoritarian socialists says "That's pie-in-the-sky", "utopian" and other such stuff. So, we'll never satisfy them...nor them us.
Sorry for adding some late comments to some of the postings.
Mikael... on an international website devoted to anarcho-syndicalism, we have been trying to make http://www.anarchosyndicalism.net/index.php a workable, contemporary site, but we need help.
Hello everyone. I just joined. My name is Mike Harris and I've been an anarcho-syndicalist since the 1970s. I associate with the Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA) here in north america.
Here's a link to our on-line magazine "ideas & action"
Yours in solidarity,
