Freedom Cells Portugal

What is a Freedom Cell?

The Freedom Cells movement is a response to increasing authoritarianism.

We understand that most of the "solutions" presented by governments and worldwide bodies not only do not work, but in most cases make problems worse...

There is a strong network of people in Portugal sharing their knowledge, skills and physical resources to decrease their dependence on the current system.

The main principles are based on connection and agorism, using decentralized groups for more security and privacy, and working together to achieve individual freedom in lifestyles.


Agorism is the consistent integration of libertarian theory with the practice of counter-economics; an agorist is one who consistently acts for freedom and in freedom.

The main goal of Freedom Cells Portugal is to create a network of mutual help and collaboration to empower the individual against the increasing intrusion of the state over people's rights.

We seek to achieve this goal not only by facilitating access to knowledge and research, but also by promoting a counter-economy as a way for humanity to develop free from government intrusion.


Another concept that is closely related to Freedom Cells is decentralization. This is a premise we subscribe to and apply at various levels, from technology use to decision making.

Decentralized networks are more resilient by their nature, ensuring that if some nodes fail, the system remains alive and functioning.

How it works

A Freedom Cell is an apolitical, voluntary association of individuals who strictly adhere to the principle of non-aggression.

The concept is to form a group of 6-10 people in your local area, whom you can trust well to share resources, knowledge, physical and emotional support, skills and expertise, a Freedom Cell.

Each cell is also connected with the other freedom cells throughout Portugal to share information and skills. A local cell is operated in whatever way the members choose.

If there are more than 6-10 people in an area, split into two or more different cells, still collaborating with the others.

Why small groups?

The freedom cells movement is based on developing trust.

Small groups are easier to build trust relationships; are easier to manage to achieve agreement; to mobilize action; and they add security and privacy via decentralization.

Individuals might not be personal friends in the traditional sense, but they do know each other’s skills and abilities, respect each other, and can work together effectively.

Ideally, freedom cells don't have fixed leaders, to prevent them from becoming more of the same society to date. Meritocracy is valued and all are invited to step into their own innate leadership skills, in various areas and roles.

Each member simply contributes what they can. This can be skills, knowledge and resources, but most of all, dedication, time and love.

Do you see value in this concept? Are you ready to create community, a better future and protect your individual freedoms?
