What is SAT?

Sennacieca Asocio Tutmonda (the World Non-national Association) is a globally based organisation for progressive people.

SAT's Aims
It's aim is to help people from many different countries to understand each other, get informed and educated, improve their lives, and to communicate and cooperate with each other in the fight against oppression.

To enable such communication and cooperation, SAT uses the international language ESPERANTO.

SAT puts its members in direct contact with other progressive people from all around the world, it encourages the swapping of information, the comparison of ideas and enables the creation of a real functioning international solidarity.

SAT Activities
SAT holds its congress in a different part of the world each year.

It publishes the monthly magazine Sennaciulo and the annual literary magazine Sennacieca Revuo.

SAT also publishes books, pamphlets, brochures, leaflets, dictionaries.

SAT's democratic and accountable structure, rather than being based on different member sections representing people within their specific national boundaries, is instead based on its individual members and their participation in the organisation - irrespective of which country they happen to live in. In this way it is a truly non-national organisation and structure.

Linked Local Associations
There exist a number of LEAs (Worker Esperanto Associations) linked to SAT. SATEB is the English speaking LEA which seeks to publicise Esperanto and recruit progressive Esperanto speakers to SAT.
For info on other LEAs, visit the SAT website.

SAT's Many Tendencies
SAT is not party political, but reflects many diverse progressive tendencies. These tendencies are represented within SAT by a number of groupings or "fractions." To find out more about the various fractions, click HERE

SAT is an independent organisation but it collaborates with other progressive organisations that use Esperanto, and works with other Esperanto organisations.

Because of its worldwide nature, the only language used in SAT is Esperanto. So in order to join, you'll need to be relatively proficient in the language.
