In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles in several languages, covering a wide range of areas.
These include workplace, environmental and anti-imperialist struggles as well as the fight against racism, sexism and homophobia.

lots of work to do


The A-Infos news lists are democratically self-managed by an international organizational collective. Here's how to participate. We especially encourage women, non-english speaking people, and those living outside of Europe and America. Here is a list of our policies.


The A-Infos Project is coordinated by an international collective of revolutionary anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist activists, involved with class struggle and who regard it as a total social struggle.

These are people who conceive themselves as revolutionary class struggle social anarchists, anarcho-communists, libertarian communists, syndicalists and others who hold similar opinions but use other labels.

A-Infos is organized by people who feel anarchism is a social theory, and that a revolution is necessary to bring about the new class-less social order, and that this revolution can only be made by the vast majority of the working people.

The specific kind of anarchism we talk about and promote is the anarchism of the Haymarket martyrs and those expelled by Karl Marx from the First International for criticizing his authoritarianism and the elitist, vanguardist degradation of the masses of The specific kind of anarchism we talk about and the working class...

We do not support the kind of anarchism proposed by some pseudo-modernists and pseudo-"revolutionaries" who regard symbolic activity as substitute to mass struggle, or the kind of anarchism of "humanists" who hold other tasks as equal or more important than the revolutionary struggle for abolishing the capitalist system.

A-Infos work is not inspired by egoistic and egocentric individualism, primitivism, "free capitalism without a state" or even a state without free capitalism - who oppose the present capitalist order but do not offer instead a viable model of modern social order of freedom, equality, and solidarity.

It is not enough for individuals and groups to use an anarchist label for their texts to be distributed by A-Infos.

In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles in several languages, covering a wide range of areas of struggle. These include workplace and environmental struggles as well as the fight against racism, sexism and homophobia. A-Infos also distributes news on indigenous peoples anti-colonialist fight against settlers, occupation and marginalization, as well as anti-nationalist and anti-regional separatist struggles, because workers have no country but the world as a whole....

A-Infos is specialized press agency, in the service (as we see it best) of the movement of revolutionary anti-capitalist activists who are involved in the various social struggles against the capitalist class and its social system.

A-Infos is not an open "liberal" service that distributes anything "we" are sympathetic to -- it is not Indymedia. It is first of all a free distribution tool for information from and about collectives of anarchist (and other anti authoritarian revolutionaries) involved in the struggle.

A-Infos workers do not think we are the ones who should decide who, on the social anarchist camp, is a "real" anarchist or not. However, as resources are limited, we have the right and duty to (autonomously) choose what we distribute what we feel is best among the contributions and contributors. The freedom of association the A-Infos collective is based on means nothing without the freedom not to associate, if workers so choose.

A-Infos has a role to play in the world anarchist movement. Information is strength. A-Infos helps to build a sense of an international movement. A-Infos is, to a certain extent, one of the few international organizational tools of the movement. But to keep this role it must stay a tool in the service of the movement and not a free-for-all information service.

A-Infos is not just an internal movement tool. Like the Anarchist FAQ, it's also a means to present the movement to the wider audience and to a new generation, and acquaint them with international aspects of the movement.

A-Infos is an autonomous anarchist press agency that is not the bullhorn of any "social" movement. Even when self-proclaimed anarchists (or even if real ones) are involved is not a guarantee A-Infos will distribute contributions. Even if we ourselves sympathize with given movements is no guarantee articles will be posted.

Thus, A-Infos distributes the news and analysis its workers want to share with the world non-authoritarian activists community -- mainly posts from anti-authoritarian revolutionary collectives and reports about direct action of social struggle both of activists and of common people in their daily life.

Anyone who is not satisfied with the services we provide, is welcome to use other services or build her/his own.

A-infos is both an organizational tool, a propaganda tool, and an information tool of the movement -- and is not merely "news by, about and of interest to anarchists."

we will pull through!

La legge del lavoro, l'unità sindacale e la rappresentatività, sostiene ... Il libro di riflessione trimestrale di Solidaires consente di discutere le pratiche nella lotta sociale. ---- Secondo i principali media borghesi, il ritorno di settembre, in opposizione alla legge del lavoro II, sarebbe stato compromesso, tra l'altro, da una mancanza di unità sindacale. Inoltre, secondo le cifre della Direzione generale del Lavoro, questi " esperti sindacali " hanno affermato che il CFDT è divenuto la prima forza sindacale in quel paese e che i risultati sono stati la prova del sostegno dei dipendenti un'organizzazione sindacale che difende la legge del lavoro. Aggiungendo a questa la criminalizzazione e la repressione dei movimenti sociali, tutto suggerisce che il rientro appare piuttosto moroso in termini di lotta e resistenza alla politica di Macron. ...

L'ultima sequenza elettorale ha provocato uno sconvolgimento nella scena politica. Un elettore perfetto sconosciuto poco più di tre anni fa è stato eletto presidente. Egli ha facilmente rimosso un FN condannato, come è, a servire come spaventapasseri. La Repubblica fondata di recente (LREM), fondata nella primavera del 2016, ha scosso il campo politico francese. Torniamo al momento Macron. ---- Le due grandi formazioni che per più di trentacinque anni hanno condiviso le responsabilità del governo hanno visto i loro candidati eliminati nel primo turno della presidenza. Se il diritto (LR-UDI) ha salvato i mobili durante il legislatore con 131 deputati, non è quasi il caso della PS sinistra che registra il peggior punteggio della sua storia con 29 deputati. Questo primo sconvolgimento è stato accompagnato da un profondo rinnovo del personale politico [1]. ...

Faire des propositions et souligner une erreur. ---- Leçons des défaites ---- Rien de pire que nier les difficultés. Le poids du chômage et de la précarité pèse sur la vitalité des syndicats dans chaque entreprise et freine l'extension des grèves. Le recul des traditions militantes combatives pèse aussi. Pour redonner confiance dans la force de la lutte collective nous devons tirer les leçons de nos échecs en 2010 et 2016. D'abord admettre ce constat: les grosses manifs, même massives, et les journées de grèves à répétition ne suffisent plus pour gagner. ---- L'enjeu est donc bien de construire une contestation permanente, reconduite au quotidien jusqu'à la victoire. ...

At the Paris demonstration against the labor law of September 12, members of the CGT's police force violently beat up feminist militants. ---- These activists denounced sexist remarks held by part of this SO, and this is not the first time this type of problem has been raised. One of the activists ended up in the ER, and the others suffered multiple bruises and bruises. ---- We still have to recall that there is no justification for violence against women. It is also unacceptable that arguments on so-called political divergences are used to explain such acts.

The mechanisms to participate in the collective decisions of this political system prevent a decisive positioning of the individuals. The delegation of the decisions to representatives has pushed us to the current frustration of seeing us limited to realize symbolic positions. The bodies of the vast majority of public administrations and private companies decide unilaterally, and ignore or even ban popular positioning or queries. We can change these decision mechanisms. We can organize ourselves horizontally and decide everyday things that involve us all. We need a unanimous interest in deciding how we should organize ourselves socially, laborally and politically. Our involvement in decisions or struggles, social, political, ecological, etc. It makes us responsible for our lives. ...

Wenn dieser Artikel erscheint, sind es noch drei Wochen bis zur Bundestagswahl. Dabei begrüße ich, dass das Thema auch in einigen anarchistischen Kreisen diskutiert wird. Ich finde das gut, denn immerhin sollten wir uns mit den politischen Geschehnissen um uns herum auseinandersetzen. Ob es uns gefällt oder nicht, gehören Wahlen, die Verschiebungen in der Parteienlandschaft und in politischen Rhetoriken, wie auch die anschließende Veränderung der Zusammensetzung von Ausschüssen etc. eindeutig dazu. ---- Es ist erforderlich, die Angelegenheit differenziert zu betrachten: Staat ist nicht gleich Staat und kann nicht eben mal abgeschafft werden; Regierung ist nicht einfach im Moment scheiße, sondern strukturell und leider macht es – zumindest kleine – Unterschiede, wer an welchen Hebeln sitzt und die angeeigneten Gelder wie verteilt.

Os mecanismos para participar das decisões coletivas deste sistema político impedem um posicionamento decisivo dos indivíduos. A delegação das decisões aos representantes nos empurrou para a frustração atual de nos vermos limitados a realizar posições simbólicas. Os órgãos da grande maioria das administrações públicas e empresas privadas decidem unilateralmente e ignoram ou mesmo proíbem posicionamentos ou consultas populares. Podemos mudar esses mecanismos de decisão. Podemos organizar-nos horizontalmente e decidir as coisas cotidianas que envolvem todos nós. Precisamos de um interesse unânime em decidir como devemos nos organizar de forma social, laboral e politica. Nosso envolvimento em decisões ou lutas, sociais, políticas, ecológicas, etc. Isso nos torna responsáveis por nossas vidas. ...

La CGA-RP dénonce sans ambiguïté l'agressione collettiva menée par des membres du service de ordre de la CGT contre cinq militantes français de la manifestazione syndicale du 12 septembre à Paris. Trois camarade ont été blessées, non è appartenente alla CGA e all'antipatriarcale anteriore . Leur seul tort: avoir réagi à un insulte sexiste proférée par un membre du SO de la CGT (1). Sans une solidarité féministe immédiate, le bilance aurait pu être bien plus lourd. ---- Le violenze di sé non sono inappetibili e non si trovano nel luogo in cui si trovano i sindacati. Rien ne saurait les justifier. Elles rappellente que les espaces militanti ne sont pas protégés faccia aux aggressions sexistes; violenze quotidiennes e massive qui permettent de maintenir l'ordre patriarcal.

Una vertenza condotta prima sul luogo di lavoro e poi nelle aule giudiziarie. ---- Dopo una prima sentenza disastrosa e illegale che aveva dato ragione alla cooperativa creando un pericolosissimo precedente giuridico (non pagamento della reperibilità perchè volontaria) finalmente in corte d'Appello sono state accolte le nostre richieste, annullata la sentenza di primo grado (che tra l'altro condannava Nicola a ingenti spese legali della controparte) e la TKV condannata a pagare tutto il periodo in cui Nicola è stato soggetto a reperibilità. ...

Tue Sep 26 04:38:53 GMT 2017

A sharp increase in fuel prices on Wednesday 6 September will hit the working class and poor hardest. Petrol, diesel and paraffin now cost 67c, 44c and 65c more, respectively. This is the fifth fuel increase this year. Economists have warned more will be disastrous. ---- The official reasons for the price hike are rising crude oil costs and the weak Rand. Government tax is also rising. Energy Minister Mamoloko Kubayi claims 4.6 cents a litre will go towards salary increases for petrol station workers. ---- The reality is rising prices get passed directly onto ordinary people by, for example, increases in taxi fares and food prices. LP gas, which with paraffin is the main fuels used in poor households, is up 86 cents a kilogram. Rising prices affect jobs, and many workers are vulnerable.

(en) Britain, solfed, manchester: Smash IPP - prisoner support
Mon Sep 25 20:04:04 GMT 2017

On Saturday September 16th, Manchester SolFed took part in a demonstration organised by the Smash IPP campaign. Imprisonment for public protection (IPP) is a brutal system under which people find themselves rotting in prison for years without any idea of when they will be released. Under IPP, people as young as 16, after being given initial sentences of two years or less for petty crimes, such as theft of a mobile phone, still find themselves locked away in prison after as much as ten years or more later. As one IPP campaigner noted, being locked away in prison for year after year with no idea of when you will be released is nothing less than a form of mental torture. Needless to say, many prisoners serving IPP sentences suffer from mental health problems, reflected in the fact that a large number of IPP prisoners resort to self harm as a coping mechanism.

Four years after the murder of Pavlos Fissas, and while the refugee issue has evolved into a central theme of the political and social agenda, the Golden Dawn has been restricted to a compliment, while solidarity with refugees is an existing social trend. And this is the most tangible result of the collective punch that the Nazis accepted after the assassination of the Fossa. But the very existence of concentration camps and the institutional racism that emerges from them give room for development to fascist perceptions: the anti-fascist movement has to maintain its memory and be vigilant with regard to the fascist poison that is still spreading among us. ---- Four years are completed on Monday (18/9) from the day of the assassination of Pavlos Fissas in Keratsini by the goldsmith Rupakia. A criminal action that came just a few months after Pakistani ...

(en) wsm.ie: Wage theft defeated by solidarity in Sydney
Mon Sep 25 14:33:29 GMT 2017

An Irish anarchist reports from recent victory in Sydney against wage theft in the hospitality industry. The Sydney Solidarity Network was formed a number of years ago along the lines of the Seattle Solidarity Network. ---- The Back Story ---- SydSol and the Anarchist Syndicalist Federation-IWA were contacted by Melinda, Sheila, Suko and Ulya, working holiday makers from Indonesia who worked at a factory in May and June in Sydney and still had not been paid. They had collectively worked 34 days and were owed over $4,000, but despite promises from the boss they had not seen a cent. ---- Time for action ---- With SSN support, on 26 August the workers protested at a restaurant in Auburn in Western Sydney partially owned by the same person as the factory they had worked at. They gave out leaflets, chanted, talked to people passing by and made the situation known. ...
