A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

Dear friends, We are even more late than usual this time, but for a while for valid
reasons since editors in Krasnodarfaced some repression, homes were searched
and people spent few days arrested. Wait for more updates on these
developments. However, here comes another international mailout...
We attached bulletin of Moscow group on workplace issues, , (Radical
lazybones). For those of you who do not yet know, Avtonom is a quarterly
(well, not even almost quarterly) paper of Autonomous Action, which
developed from a network to libertarian communist federation January 2002,
after two years of existence. Currently Autonomous Action has local groups
in dozen or so cities of Russia and Armenia, and supporters in Belarus,
Lithuania, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. We have not added action report this time, since
all of the actions listed this time took place at least 3 months ago, and
there are much more recent news about
Russian anarchist activities in the English language internet, such as

This time Radical lazybones includes sort of an editorial "ghost of the
proletariat" by Rebel Worker, hard realities
of working conditions in the "gold collar" computer industry, theoretical
article about new forms of organisation of
labour such as networks by A. Mayhova and our regular feature, a black list
of Moscow employers. Visit
website www.antijob.nm.ru for more of the same.

It is very difficult to get foreign radical press and texts in Russia, so we
are interested to expand our mailing list - if you know people who would be
interested to read our materials, please contact them for us! Currently
German correspondence is done by Nizhni Novgorod section, English by
Krasnodar, Italian by our members in Kazakhstan and Scandinavian languages
and French in Moscow - please send press with respective languages to cities
dealing with respective correspondence. In another hand, mailing out is so
expensive that we would only like to post our
papers only to people who understand what is written in them...

Relevant addresses are (do not write names of the group to envelopes,
please!) Note that we have some changes here.
