An autonome is a person who regards herself belonging to autonomous movement
. (I think that) the roots of autonomous movement are in Italy
but nowadays the movement
is considerably strong throughout the Europe
, especially in Germany and Italy. It's quite impossible to define autonomes precisely without making illegal generalization
s. Generally we could only say that an autonome is an antagonist
subject; opposing the state and capitalist
system. Also the vigorously non-hierarchical
structure of organization
is a defining character among the autonomes.
Autonomian movement has absorbed different characteristics from different countries and from the different continuations of social culture
-- even though autonomes themselves would reject this kind of "weak sociology
" in their own analyses..
In Italy they once called themselves communist
s but they were from non-stalinist tendency
having close relations with anarchist
s. In Germany
they are nowadays closely linked with Anti-Fascist Action
. Some autonomes you were able to spot in Gothenburg
, Sweden June 2001 with black mask
s and all..
