Action front

Activist organization that unites members of a given social sector in the struggle to defend their interests. Today, grassroots organizations are able to develop thanks to the expansion of different a. f. considered as “converging diversities” in their objective of producing progressive changes or changes by demonstration effect in the present power structure. In this sense, organized labor cannot confine itself to the limits proposed by the existing system of unions and guilds, removed as these are from the social base and progressively tending towards isolated hierarchies. Grassroots labor associations that join together to form autonomous a. f. with multiple ties to other fronts constitute a new form of organization and action that corresponds to the process of destructuring and decentralization that can be observed today in all fields.
