Neither Marxist nor Social Democrat, Autonomous England seeks to promote a new alternative for the people of England and the British Isles.
Our Socialist vision is that of decentralized society,
based on voluntary association and participatory democracy, where we are organized in the workplace and
in the community rather than in any centralist socialist state, which simply
replaces one elite with another. Instead we advocate real power for ordinary
As such Autonomous England would like to encourage
supporters to develop a wider influence of the movements, ideas, people and
publications that inspire us.
