Celebrating 150 years of the First International

The International Workers Association (AIT) was founded on September 28, 1864 in London.  Marking this historical occasion, the launch of the revolutionary role of the world proletariat, presents a timely opportunity for us today to revitalize the idea of international coordination of workers against capitalism.

It would also be an opportunity to revisit a perspective discussed some 15-20 years ago among the far left:  the organizations that bring together those differing currents of opinion and concerns that exist in the labor movement, notably those of anarchists and Marxists. 

The Chorale des Sans Nom proposes to initiate just such an event celebrating these 150 years of AIT on 13-14-15 July in Nancy, France.  By launching this initiative we do not wish to be the only organizers: unions, associations, journals / newspapers, various networks that support the revolutionary and internationalist legacy of AIT are free to join us.  Other projects or collectives, cultural or academic, are naturally also welcome.

To date, we have a relatively large venue available to us (several large rooms and an outdoor space to host several hundred people, with an area appropriate for building a stage, stands, etc.).  We also have the possibility for accommodation for 150 people at a moderate rate (estimate 20 euro per night) in addition to activist accommodation, for those coming to Nancy from out of town. 

In conjunction with the event, Jean-Luc Marino will film a documentary on this 150th anniversary of AIT, for release on a public channel.

The first planned events are as follows (non-exhaustive list):

  • An international meeting with trade union activists and revolutionaries from different countries (Greece, Tunisia, Egypt, US..);
  • An internationalist demonstration to be held in Nancy;
  • Multiple debates on a range of topics: historical, international current events, the revolutions of the Arab world, coordinating the fight in Europe;
  • A book fair with committed members of the press and publishers;
  • Screenings of films and discussions with filmmakers;
  • Discussions with less-known sociologists and historians organized by/with people and/or unions of the University of Lorraine;
  • A singing part– the Chorale des Sans Nom will invite two or three revolutionary choir groups from England, Italy and Germany.
  • A musical and festivities part – fanfares, militant groups and alas musicians to animate Saturday evening;
  • Artistic performances and exhibitions ranging from: sports tournaments (pétanque, ping-pong, fly-fishing in the canal), circus games with Christians being devoured by lions, etc.
