IWAâ€“AITThe '''International Workers' Association â€“ (IWAâ€“AIT''') is an international federation of anarcho-syndicalist labor unions and initiatives.
Based on the principles of revolutionary unionism, the international aims to create unions capable of fighting for the economic and political interests of the working class and eventually, to directly abolish capitalism and the state through "the establishment of economic communities and administrative organs run by the workers."
At its peak the International represented millions of people worldwide. Its member unions played a central role in the social conflicts of the 1920s and 1930s. However the International was formed as many countries were entering periods of extreme repression, and many of the largest IWA unions were shattered during that period.
As a result, by the end of World War II all but one of the International's branches had ceased to function as unions, a slump which continued throughout the 1940s and 1950s. It would not be until the late 1970s, with the death of Spanish ''caudillo'' Francisco Franco, that it would see a major union, the ConfederaciÃ³n Nacional del Trabajo (CNT) reform within its ranks.
After the 1970s, the International expanded and currently counts 14 member sections and 6 Friends. Provided by Wikipedia
