"This Month in NYMAA"

The New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists

A Bimonthly Bulletin, No. 1, June, 2007

Welcome to the first issue of This Month in NYMAA! This bulletin will be
coming out every two months or so, and we hope it will give the wider
anarchist movement a clearer picture of the types of projects that the New
York Metro Alliance of Anarchists is generating.

NYMAA was founded at our first General Assembly on March 4, 2006. We are
comprised of anarchists, antiauthoritarians, horizontalists, and
far-left-leaning individuals committed to changing the world through the
act of social revolution. Our ultimate aim is to eradicate all forms of
authoritarianism, hierarchy, and domination and build a genuinely
liberatory, self-managed, directly democratic society. To that end, our
immediate aim is to bring anarchists together on a common plane of
struggle for the purposes of growing and expanding the movement and
spreading our ideas.
