Inspired by recent works by Lina Álvarez and Brendan Coolsaet in Capitalism Nature Socialism, this commentary introduces the concept of anarchist decolonization for further exploration. Recognizing constructive decolonial criticisms, the article briefly reviews the multiplicity of anarchist positions and their relationship to anti-colonial/decolonial struggles. Then observable tensions within decolonial theory are discussed, highlighting issues to which anarchist decolonization responds. Finally, exploring anarchist decolonization reinforces and expands on the issues voiced by Álvarez and Coolsaet with Environmental Justice (EJ) studies.
