Composed of collectives, groups and networks active in various struggles, the antiauthoritarian movement, which was consolidated in Quebec in the wake of the Global justice movement is guided by values that are based on a common ethical compass. The latter is based on a vision of anarchism as a process that prefigures, in the here and now, a society based on collective autonomy. This chapter documents the work of activists involved in three micro-cohorts of the anti-authoritarian movement, and who are the forefront of the development of practices for self-determination and self-organization. These micro-cohorts, composed of radical feminists and (pro) feminists, radical queers, and feminists and (pro)feminists involved in struggles against racism and colonialism, contribute to achieving this goal through a process of pollination that enables the dissemination of practices in different spaces. This analysis is the result of research carried out within the Research Group on Collective Autonomy (CRAC). crac is a (pro) feminist and anti-authoritarian affinity group that has been documenting its own movement using a participatory action research methodology.
