Errico Malatesta

We anarchists do not want to emancipate the people; we want the people to emancipate themselves.

Errico Malatesta

Anarchists are opposed to violence. The main plank of anarchism is the removal of violence from human relations. It is life based on the freedom of the individual, without the intervention of the police. For this reason we are enemies of capitalism, which depends on the protection of the police to force workers to allow themsleves to be exploited. We are therefore enemies of the State, which is the coercive, violent organization of society.
