About Us

The Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council is organized under the guiding principles of horizontalism, direct democracy and direct action. Through this umbrella we are building an anarchist movement forum in NYC greater than the sum of its parts. With the present atmosphere of xenophobia, racism, misogyny and the sense of ennui surrounding representational politics in America, we are making diverse anarchist projects visible to the world at large and seeding resistance to this emboldened right-wing with an alternative, radical form of participatory politics.

MACC is open to all anarchists.

MACC's primary decision making body is the organizing committee which currently operates on modified consensus. The organizing committee is open to all participants in our monthly general assemblies and in MACC committees. However, with a “democracy of direct action” ethos, MACC is a coordinating (not mandating) body, ensuring our ability to address larger questions of strategy and narrative while protecting a plurality of voices and tactics. This means committees and working groups are free to determine their own internal structure and pursue their own vital projects. In this way, we demonstrate a vision for a society in fundamental opposition to the brutal logic of contemporary capitalism. A society based on mutual aid, cooperation, and radical democracy.
