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!

(pt) NOTA DO SECRETARIADO da FAG - Nem com os que mandam por cima, nem com os que reprimem os de baixo
Mon Aug 03 14:35:37 GMT 2015

A conjuntura é de ataques dos governos (federal, estadual e municipal) em forma de ajustes, que retiram direitos básicos d@s trabalhador@s para garantir os benefícios dos governos e os lucros dos patrões, com as isenções e sonegações de impostos. A lógica é a mesma, cortar na carne dos de baixo pra manter os privilégios das elites. ---- Diante desses ataques e retirada de direitos, a nossa posição continua sendo a luta direta, desde a base, contra os patrões e governos. Portanto, não acreditamos em greves que apostam somente em negociatas e que puxa freio da base revoltada e com disposição de resistência. Tampouco concordamos com direções determinando o tempo de greve das categorias, pois o tempo da luta é determinado pela capacidade de conquista d@s trabalhador@s!

I bombardamenti in Nord Iraq, gli scontri e gli arresti di massa in Turchia, le operazioni militari in Siria (Rojava), dimostrano che l'escalation militare a cui sta dando vita la Turchia è una guerra contro i curdi e la loro lotta per l'autodeterminazione, nonostante la propaganda mediatica continui a parlare di "guerra all'ISIS". ---- Ben strana "guerra all'ISIS" quella in cui l'obiettivo principale sono le uniche forze che sul campo stanno combattendo lo Stato Islamico! ---- Nei fatti questa è la reazione della Turchia all'esperimento politico di autogoverno del Rojava, fatta con il beneplacito degli Stati Uniti e della Nato. ---- L'info di Blackout ne ha parlato con Daniele (collaboratore della Radio, autore di "Nell'occhio del ciclone, il popolo curdo tra guerra e rivoluzione", e rientrato di recente da Nord Iraq e Siria).

The cartoon on the left is from a few months ago but expresses how Kurds saw the role of the Turkish state towards ISIS and the conflict in Syria. Considerable evidence of support for ISIS from the Turkish state has been published in the international media over the last months. An ISIS commander told the Washington Post on August 12, 2014, "We used to have some fighters -- even high-level members of the Islamic State -- getting treated in Turkish hospitals." ---- This Sunday the Observer revealed details of a US Special forces raid on an ISIS compound. "One senior western official familiar with the intelligence gathered at the slain leader's compound said that direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now "undeniable"." Oil smuggling was what that ISIS leader was co-ordinating with the Turkish officials and ISIS were getting an "estimated ...

Lo que no quita para que algunos reglamentos fijen todavía, con ingenuidad, los castigos corporales. En varias cárceles de Inglaterra, Dinamarca, Suecia y Estados Unidos se administran hasta treinta o cuarenta azotes. El señor Mimande ha visto en Sidney canaletas para retirar la sangre.
