The new "CSAF" (synthesist and reformist wing) will probably publish the new magazine, called "Existence". More detailed report will be written and approved as the official document on the FSA preliminary meeting, taking place 25.-27.10.
FSA-IWA MEETING - NORTHERN BOHEMIA - 25.-27.10.
Between 25. and 28th October the FSA-Prague organised first small meeting to solve some most urgent problems after the split in the old CSAF. It was not a congress, but a workshop, where we discussed our basic strategy in the future. We do not think, that the new "CSAF" is the same organisations as before, for instance in claims to be "Czechoslovak", but has got no members in Slovakia, because all of them joined the F.S.A. Therefore we do not consider this organisation to be the "Czechoslovak Anarchist Federation", it is rather a some indifferent mixture of old CSAF remnants and "new" groups, mostly green "anarchist" and lifestylist. Therefore be aware of the new "CSAF", it is not the same as before the 5th congress. We discussed the FSA Principles and Programme Manifesto and definitely decided, that we will use the previous materials of Anarcho-syndicalist Faction without any substantial changes.
We also solved a lot of practical problems, for instance publishing of our magazine "Free Labour" /former "Svobodna Mysl"/, Internal bulletin etc. After long discussion we also passed more detailed report about the split, which is currently being translated and will be available on the IFA/IAF congress in Lyon, which delegation of our International secretariat will attend. There is one more thing: we spotted some reports on the E-mail conferences, saying, that the FSA did "separate" from the CSAF or "left the federation". This is not true. We did not insist on the possession of the name /CSAF/, because it would produce useless problems and bitter quarrels. Moreover the present FSA members are mostly those, who founded the old federation in August 1995 and were almost the only socially active in the organisation. We therefore declare, that neither FSA nor the "CSAF" has got some exclusive copyright to the activity of old federation.
