Eco-Anarchism or Green Anarchism is an Environmentalist Anarchist ideology inhabiting a similar position to AnCom and AnSynd at the bottom of the LibLeft quadrant. He gets very mad when people mistake him for AnPrim. Instead of advocating for a return to primitive life, EcoAn advocates for humanity to be much closer to nature than it is right now. It is nearly always associated with QueerAn and the aforementioned AnCom in protests, due to their similar ideological goals.

Important early influences were Henry David Thoreau, Leo Tolstoy and Élisée Reclus. In the late 19th century, green anarchism emerged within individualist anarchist circles in Cuba, France, Portugal and Spain. In the latter half of the 20th century, environmentalists began to realize the need for radical egalitarianism within their movement.

To this end, the American author Murray Bookchin analyzed the connection between human life and the land they lived on. Bookchin hypothesized that any adverse change in the ecology of the planet would negatively affect the humans living on it. At the end of this meta-analysis of human history, Bookchin concluded that capitalism (and its negative ecological consequences) began the moment humans broke the 'blood oath' that connected them to nature. This 'blood oath' was based on 'usufruct' (the minimal use of natural resources), and the 'irreducible minimum' (distributing gains equally among the familial group).

The Zones to defend (ZAD) in France are examples of applications of green anarchism. These zones consist of occupations of territories to prevent the construction of polluting projects. During the occupation the ''Zadists'' create an alternative model of society quite close to utopian socialism.


Eco-Anarchism believes in the complete abolition of the state in favor of decentralized eco-communes. It also believes that capitalism's natural tendency towards infinite profits is destroying the planet. Due to these beliefs, many eco-anarchists are willing to do actions such as tree-sitting to oppose the cutting of a forest or attacking police equipment.

Personality and Behavior

Eco-Anarchists can act either very peaceful, either living in an isolated log cabins in the woods or in primitive commune/tribes, or they can engage in revolutionary-like tactics against the State by mail bombings or protests.

Eco-Anarchists are very kind towards animals of all types and have differing opinions on humans. Eco-Anarchists usually have a vege-patch and will give tips to starting your own.
