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."

(en) Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Referendum: Anarchists in Scotland – and elsewhere in Britain – will have their work cut out for them.
Tue Sep 23 08:46:20 GMT 2014

"Anarchists in Scotland – and elsewhere in Britain – will have their work cut out for them. The positive vision of change, independence and autonomy which the “yes” campaign uncovered and pushed in a certain direction is still there and could blossom into a wider social movement which aims for freedom in all aspects of life – which could only be a decentralised, federal, self-managed socialist system, or anarchism (to use the proper name!). ---- Time will tell whether I suffer from “nationalist illusions” or not, but anarchism must be a popular movement, a movement of the people, and that means it must reflect and develop the progressive wishes of the masses if it is to be relevant."

(en) Britain, Glasgow Palestine Action Shut Down Drone Manufacturer! by AfED
Tue Sep 23 08:22:14 GMT 2014

A group of activists from Glasgow Palestine Action network have today shut down Thales UK, the weapons systems manufacturer, in Govan, Glasgow. ---- The activists climbed onto the factory roof, and blocked the doors, during the early hours of the morning and are planning to remain as long as possible. Activists are blockading both entrances, lying on the ground attached to arm tubes, and are occupying the roof. ---- The action is in response to the recent Israeli bombardment of Gaza, and the UK economy’s ever growing military industrial cooperation with governments that flout international law. In just over 7 weeks, Israel, armed with weapons supplied by the UK, killed more than 2000 innocent Palestinians. ---- Thales is being targeted today for their close relationship with Elbit Systems, Israel’s largest military company and the world’s largest drone ...

(en) US, Racism At The North American Anarchist Black Cross Conference By: Lorenzo and JoNina Ervin AND a responce by The NA ABC Conference Organizing Crew & Denver ABC
Tue Sep 23 06:34:36 GMT 2014

Dear Comrades: ---- An ugly, racist incident happened at the September 11-14, 2014, conference of the North American Anarchist Black Cross (NA-ABC) which disrupted the meeting and created conflict among activists there, after a young activist read a letter from a white racist prison guard who opposed the parole of black political prisoner, Jalil Muntaqim. The letter was read at the instruction of Brother Jalil to show the racist and entrenched opposition to his parole by white cops and their fraternal and police associations. We do not blame Brother Jalil, who has been in prison for decades and had no way of knowing that black people would be sitting in the room when the letter was read, nor the young activist who read the letter, not knowing how it would impact the black people who heard it, and who later apologized for his error. We blame other activists on ...

L'État turc se frotte les mains. Pour les gouvernements, qu'il s'agisse de Damas, de Washington, de Bagdad, de Téhéran ou d'Ankara, il sera toujours temps d'"éradiquer" Daech après qu'ils auront fait le sale boulot de démolir la gauche kurde. ---- Le communiqué de la Fédération des Associations Kurdes de France (FEYKA) :https://www.facebook.com/pages/FEYKA-F%C3%A9d%C3%A9ration-des-Associations-Kurdes-de-France/1398668417058368 ---- HALTE AUX OFFENSIVES BARBARES DE DAECH À KOBANÊ! ---- Sanctions contre les États qui soutiennent les djihadistes! ---- Appel à manifester samedi 20 septembre, 16 heures, devant la Fontaine des Innocents (Place Joachim-de-Bellay, Paris 1er) ...

Moscow group "Autonomous Action" is one of the organizers of the anti-authoritarian left column. ---- We invite to join us those who are tired from a long bloody "dance" anti-people-and-coming tillage republics and cynical organizers of anti-terrorist operations. They solve their financial and reputational issues due to deaths of civilians in eastern Ukraine and brainwashed armed men, citizens of Ukraine and Russia, many of whom are forced to fight the force of circumstances - lack of money, oath, the lack of accurate information. ---- We invite you to our coalition of those who understand that in this war, both sides are guilty - or rather, the command of both sides.

Since September 2013, the Confederation Paysanne fights against the mad project of factory farm 1,000 cows in the Somme. Michel Ramery, its founder, plans to use animals for anaerobic digestion ... and possibly milk. ---- With the factory farm cows 1000, its founder, Michel Ramery, is far from the small farm in dairy production. The goal is to put 1,000 cows building and acquire 3,000 hectares of land for an operating license. With three milkings per day, he plans to produce 9 million liters per year. Thanks to gains in its giant digester, he was ready to sell the milk to 270 euros per ton while the market price is around 350 euros. Such policies will necessarily lead to lower prices and create difficulties for small farms. It does not have to worry because his project is a real money pump. All confused, it would affect 4 million state aid per year. ...
