Anarchy 2022 - St-Imier July 28-31 International Anti-Authoritarian Gathering


From 28th to 31st July 2022 the the International Anti-Authoritarian Gathering 2022 will be held in St-Imier (Jura, CH) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Congress of St-Imier which, in 1872, saw the foundation of the Anti-Authoritarian International, an event marking the birth of the organized anarchist movement.

The event will consist of 4 days of meetings, lectures, concerts, seminars and various other activities. It will be a great opportunity for libertarian supporters, inhabitants of the region and elsewhere, and the general public to meet, debate, share and experience libertarian ideas and practices. It will also be an opportunity for those who have not yet discovered the rich history of this movement to learn about its contributions to social progress and its struggles from previous centuries to the present day.

What are anarchists doing today? What are their ideas, their works, their actions? How have they contributed to world history for more than 150 years? What can we learn from this concept, and why is anarchy more desirable than ever?

Anarchy is not chaos and lack of order at all, but the opposite: it advocates an anti-authoritarian approach and a personal and social organization that promotes the emancipation of all human beings. This means fighting against all forms of oppression, exploitation and imposed authority, seeking to enhance everywhere freedom (absence of domination), equity (absence of privilege) and mutual aid (mutuality).

On this occasion, we would like to welcome participants from all continents. All those interested are invited to contribute to the organization and the success of this meeting in whatever way they find most suitable (sharing information, contributing ideas, joining in art projects, providing material support, etc.).

St-Imier 2021: 150 years commemoration of the Jura Federation and the Circulaire de Sonvilier
The St-Imier gatherings in July 2021 commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Jura Federation and the Sonvilier Circular.

Note: Spaces for participation are limited and the detailed workshop agendas are adjusted to participants schedules! To request an invitation: synergiehub.ch

The Jura Federation formed in 1871 as the first explicitly anti-authoritarian workers association, taking a stand against the authoritarian and centralised strategies and practices of the 1st International's general council, most specifically embodied by Marx and Engels. The Jura Federation met in Sonvilier to draft a circular expressing this fundamentally different view, emphasising that the free society we strive for can not be achieved through centralised and authoritarian power. Instead, it needs to be manifested by creating structures and practices that faithfully mirror our principles of freedom and autonomous federation.
The following year, in September 1872, many sections from other countries, which agreed with this anarchist vision, joined the Jura Federation for the congress that led to the creation of the famous Anti-authoritarian International of St-Imier, completing the split from the Marxists.

Similarly, during the St-Imier 2021 gatherings we will be working together on projects that lay the ground work for our contribution to a larger event that is being planned for July 2022. That year, several international anarchist organisations will be inviting together to a larger conference commemorative of the 1872 Anti-Authoritarian congress.

Of course, the workshops we organise in this context, both in 2021 and 2022, will not just be celebrating the historic context, but will be forward looking. They will be following through with practical steps for manifesting a transformed society, locally and internationally.

So, save these dates:
28-31 July 2022

And check back here for more details on the program and additional workshop schedules or join the St-Imier gatherings mailing list.

The Mycelium Model of Glocal Governance - Abstract

Abstract:

The Mycelium Model of Glocal Governance is a governance structure that is parallel to the existing governance structures in the world. It does not aim to replace them. It is complementary to them. It has, however, the inherent power to transform them or to bring about new structures that make them obsolete.

It is glocal, translocal in nature. It is decentralised, powered through the interdependent participation of local and translocal random groups of people.

The Mycelium governance structure does not make decisions. Its function is to facilitate awareness of current consensus in society. Once collective realization arises, there should be no need for making "decisions". However, where decisions are made in the parallel old and emerging governance structures, this collective realization is taken into account as part of agreeing on the chosen path forward.

1) People gathering

From society, people gather in groups, meet at a venue or online, synchronously or asynchronously, with the aim to reach consensus.

2) Consensing process

They make use of best practice methods and tools to help reach and formulate consent or consensus outcomes.

3) Sharing outcomes

The outcomes are shared with the public and amplified to society at large. Evolving best practices will continuously improve the way in which these outcomes are kept retrievable in the most relevant ways.

The implementation of this model works by nursing and cultivating best practices for 1) People gathering, 2) Consensing process and 3) Sharing outcomes. As the quality and best practices in these three fields improve, the attention to these processes and the awareness of its outcomes in society at large will increase.

As this governance culture evolves, it will be increasingly possible to respond to challenges by retrieving information on the existing collective consensus regarding how to handle the challenge.

The Mycelium Model of Glocal Governance represents a fundamental shift away from decision making power structures to a culture of moving forward on agreed paths as a direct result of collective awareness.

The model works with existing institutions, regulations, decision-making paths and control mechanisms and does not directly control how key individuals and other decision-making bodies are to be appointed. It influences these institutions, decision-making and control mechanisms as well as their appointment only in a way in which existing checks and balances are initially unchanged. Newly emerging governance structures evolve their mandate and their checks and balances independently as well, in accordance with current regulations and control mechanisms.

The premise of the Mycelium model is a bottum up, organic and self-organisational approach that releases the full potential of individuals, communities and affinity groups to manifest change with greater sovereignty in a self-empowered, decentralized way. It at the same time ensures an increased likeyhood that the changes that are manifested are supported by a large consensus in society.

The mycelium is both a local solution and an international solution that can work in tandem, or symbiotically, with existing systems as they are transforming. This is an enlightened, innovative way to approach the challenges we all face today, but it is also a model that is striking through its simplicity. It is spoken in the very language of the nature we are trying to preserve, not only as it relates to the metaphor of the mycelium shape, but also in the way it creates an entire ecosystem for current and future governance best practices and how it works with the nature of the human being instead of against it.

António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations on the 19th September 2017 stated:

“The UN needs to decentralise it's decisions and to create a game changing strategy that places more on people than on process.“

The Mycelium Model of Glocal Governance - Description

Description:

The need for a new shape for current and future challenges

As we recognise the need to see global challenges as a requirement for more global coordination and cooperation, and hence, the need for governance to become one global organisation, we at the same time see organisations of all sizes shifting from simple decision making structures towards a more complex governance culture. Governance at any level and organisations of any size are becoming increasingly synonymous concepts.

Different shapes of organising, providing a historic context

In recent human history, different paradigm shifts in how we organise and govern have come about at an increasing pace. From a triangle shaped governance, that is authority based and where the bottom line is what the person in charge is saying, to boxed shaped forms of organisation where the bottom line is what the "contract" says, to circle shaped governance, which is dialogue based and where the bottom line is what we decide together.

These waves of new forms of organising have spilled into the cultures of our society in ways where the older organisation structures continued to exist in parallel. The new organisations tend to form along side old ones, but grow to increasing importance, while the older organisation structures slowly fade in their relevance.

On the historic time scale, authority based organising has shaped our governance for thousands of years while contract based governance has become of primary importance during the past centuries. In comparison, dialogue based, collective decision making has really been gaining only during the past decades, with a vast amount of our governance structures still dominated by the earlier forms of organisation. However, we see an exponentially fast transformation happening towards the more advanced forms of organising, to the point of new paradigm shifts happening already before the impact of earlier shifts is fully felt in society.

The shape of the mycelium

We propose that the new shape of a governance culture to meet current and future challenges is that of the mycelium.

"I have increasingly come to regard the mycelium as a heterogenous army of hyphal troops, variously equipped for different roles and in varying degrees of communication with one another. Without a commander, other than the dictates of their environmental circumstances, these troops organise themselves into a beautifully open-ended or indeterminate dynamic structure that can continually respond to changing demands."

Dr Alan Rayner ( Biologist and Educator)

The word “mycelium” literally means “more than one”. The plural form is Mycelia. The word has modern Latin and Greek origins and was first coined in text in the early 1800’s, and refers to the thread-like body of a fungus.

The spores of most fungi grow a network of branching filamentous hyphae, which spread into the existing organic structures. In most fungi, hyphae are collectively called a mycelium. The hyphae excrete enzymes that break down the old and turn it into compost, which serves as nutrient for the emerging new.
Where hyphae gather to form a whitish mycelium-soil aggregated zone, called the shiro, a mushroom will come out as the fruit bodies of the mycelium, with its spores spreading to grow new hyphea elsewhere.

The shape of the Mycelium applied to governance

Like a spore from a mushroom, people that carry the awareness about a collective consensus in society, will be motivated to move to action along that path. Like hyphea, they will grow to find others that they can join in order to implement projects for manifesting the change that is called for. Or they will be motivated to further explore related aspects regarding that challenge and gather in groups with others that share that interest. Like in shiro, these gatherings, with the use of best practice processes, will create consensus outcomes statements that, like mushrooms, send the spores of that newly gained awareness out in society.
