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."

Tue Mar 31 15:06:11 GMT 2015

Se cumplen 90 años del anarquismo social y organizado en Colombia, 90 años en los que el anarquismo como ideología y como propuesta revolucionaria, ha tenido una intensa labor e influencia entre las trabajadoras y el pueblo colombiano. En distintos momentos históricos el anarquismo aparece en nuestro país para atormentar al poder burgués, alborotar al reformismo autoritario y potenciar la organización, la lucha y la esperanza de las de abajo, pero también en largos periodos históricos el anarquismo ha desaparecido; violentado por las clases dominantes, reprimido por el Estado, marginado por el resto de la izquierda y olvidado por las mismas oprimidas, que originalmente le dieron vida, sentido y actualidad, el proyecto libertario por momentos se ha extinguido y ha dejado de ser una alternativa social, eficaz y duradera en la complicada realidad colombiana. ...

Nous avons appris avec stupeur et beaucoup de chagrin le décès de Serge Torrano, le 30 mars 2015, à l'hôpital d'Agen.

With the cuts announced by the Liberal government, "regions' lose through various measures and funds, a significant portion of their funding. Already scalded by high unemployment and savings often based on a natural resource or a particular industry, these cuts do nothing to help. We must add to that a migration to "major centers" and a high proportion, in some areas, seasonal jobs. In such a context, fools are those who believe that cutting is the right solution to put forward. ---- "Do not touch my region" but still ... (1) ---- Let's face it certainly cuts in funding deserve an outcry, but the conditions that prevailed before to cut financial aid to regions were far from rosy. It resembled a lot more to a long agony that a situation of prosperity. While Couillard relented and maintains regional funding via the various funds, programs and structures (CRE, CLD), the ...

Avec les coupures annoncées par le gouvernement libéral, les "régions" perdent, via diverses mesures et fonds, une importante partie de leur financement. Déjà très échaudées par des taux de chômage élevés et des économies souvent basées sur une ressource naturelle ou un secteur en particulier, ces coupes n’ont rien pour aider. Il faut ajouter à cela un exode vers les "grands centres" et une forte proportion, dans certaines régions, d’emplois saisonniers. Dans un tel contexte, fous sont ceux qui croient que couper est la bonne solution à mettre de l’avant. ---- "Touche pas à mes régions", mais encore...(1) ---- Ne nous leurrons pas, certes les coupures dans le financement méritent une levée de boucliers, mais les conditions qui régnaient avant de sabrer dans l’aide financière aux régions étaient loin d’être rose.

Mit Bestürzung haben wir vom Tod von Barbara "Emmely" Emme erfahren. Emmely war ein Vorbild für ArbeiterInnen die um ihre Würde und um ihre Rechte kämpfen. Die FAU erklärte sich stets solidarisch mit ihren Engagement gegen die Willkür der Arbeitgeber von der Verkaufskette Kaisers. Insbesondere als Verkäuferin war sie mit ihren gewerkschaftlichen Engagement und ihrem Durchhaltewillen in einem gewerkschaftsfeindlichen Arbeitsumfeld eine bewunderswerte Vorkämpferin!

Wir wünschen ihren FreundInnen, nahestehenden UnterstützerInnen und ihrer Familie Kraft und Mut auf ihren weiteren Weg. ---- Wir dokumentieren hier ein Schreiben des "Komitee Solidarität mit Emmely"

(fr) UCL, Le Budget 2015-2016 du Québec analysé par un libertaire du Saguenay (en)
Mon Mar 30 10:52:35 GMT 2015

Dévoilé hier (26 mars), le budget provincial 2015-2016 a été annoncé comme un «message de confiance» par le ministre des Finances Carlos Leitao. Ce dernier, qui était à la direction d'une banque avant d'occuper son poste de ministre, a souligné lors du dévoilement du budget que son «espoir devient réalité aujourd'hui». Puisqu'il ne s'agit pas d'un banal exercice de comptable et que ce budget aura de très sérieux impacts sur le plan humain, je vous propose cette analyse libertaire du budget; ses grandes lignes, ses impacts et enfin, ce à quoi pourrait ressembler un budget anarchiste. ---- Un exercice budgétaire se base sur la masse de fric qui rentre dans le système (le PIB).
