The Norsk Syndikalistisk Forbund (Norwegian Syndicalist League) is an anarcho-syndicalist group in Norway, it is the Norwegian section of the International Workers Association, and was mandated as the secretariat of the International until 2007, when the Serbian section Anarho-sindikalisticka inicijativa (ASI-MUR) took over.

History[edit]

The NSF was originally established in 1916, and joined the IWA the year after it was founded, in 1923. Originally it counted thousands of members, but this membership drifted away,[1] the NSF was unable to operate openly while the Nazis occupied Norway, but did carry on a clandestine existence. It has been present at all post-war IWA Congresses and maintains a hard defence of the IWA to this day.

Recent activities[edit]

NSF members are active in international solidarity, such as for the recent strike of the Spanish Confederación Nacional del Trabajo at Mercadona supermarkets and in fighting for anarcho-syndicalist methods of organisation amongst workers in Norway.
