Resumé

Firefund.net. crowdfunds and provides resources for direct action movements. The organisation positions itself within a political struggle to create a global solidarity network. Firefund.net’s challenges and possibilities are analysed in relation to juridical issues and issues of control and sharing responsibility in a supposedly self-organised organisation. Two main dilemmas are discussed. Firstly, how to build both an effective and self-organising website: the internal organising of Firefund.net is a key challenge, not least when it comes to including communities of activists. Secondly, how to support radical initiatives without breaking the law: some activists sympathise with movements in a juridical grey zone. Both issues are relevant to social movements and current direct action.
