“Organizing” is a process through which our collectives can generate horizontal, personal and collective power to change the unequal power relationship which characterise our conflicts with institutions and major corporations.

Organizing tries to unite our struggles in solidarity beyond one organisation, building alliances that allows us to achieve our objectives.
