German word for autonomism. Sometimes used in the English-speaking world because of the importance of the movement in Germany, where it is particularly associated with militant direct action and direct resistance to police violence.

In contrast to autonomism and autonomia, this word refers to an individual activist in the movement as well as to the movement itself (in its plural forms). It seems to be used instead of a general appelation.
Autonomes were in the forefront of mobilising to smash the Nazi demonstration.
