A-INFOS-ORG

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.

A-INFOS VISION

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."

This text was written as an answer to our foreign friends' questions about situation in the Eastern Ukraine and Russian anarchists' attitude towards that. We hope it will be of use to everybody interested in these matters.--The situation is complex and controversial and you should understand that the text below does not (and can't) reflect the opinion of all Russian anti-fascists and anti-capitalists. We discussed this within our group, but even here we have a couple of contradicting points of view. ---- Anyway, our organization ("Autonomous Action") mostly agrees to this anti-war statement of left-wing movements. We do not support Ukrainian government (neither government, in fact), and undoubtedly there are some harsh nationalist tendencies in the Ukraine today. However, even less is our support for Russian government and for so called 'Novorossiya republics'. ...

On Oct. 11-12, an international conference was held in Bratislava, Slovakia, devoted to problems in the workplace and improving organization. The first day was a public conference where different organizations presented their activity and ways of working while the second day was devoted to discussing how to improve our organizations. ---- The public conference was entitled "Problems at Work?".

Representatives of four organizations gave presentations: the Most Solidarity Network from the Czech Republic, Priama Akcia from Slovakia, ZSP from Poland and Solidarity Federation from UK.

(de) Schwedische Schule Berlin: Internationaler Aktionstag gegen Kündigungen!

Sun Oct 19 08:39:01 GMT 2014

"Das Elfte Gebot: Du sollst nicht Mitglied in einer Gewerkschaft sein!" ---- Unter diesem Motto rief die FAU Berlin befreundete Gewerkschaften und Gruppen auf, bei Niederlassungen der schwedischen Kirche, (Träger der schwedischen Schule in Berlin) gegen die Kündigungen von Gewerkschaftern in der schwedischen Schule Berlin zu protestieren. Am Aktionstag fanden nach unseren bisherigen Kenntnisstand 15 Aktionen statt. In Berlin protestierten 20 GewerkschafterInnen am Sonntagmorgen ebenso vor der schwedischen Kirche vor dem Beginn der Messe für die Wiedereinstellung der beiden Gewerkschafter. ---- Beginn des Konflikts war die Entlassung der gesamten Belegschaft - nach und nach wurden die Lehrkräfte und das Betreuungspersonal wieder eingestellt, bis auf eine Lehrkraft und einen Erzieher, die beide gewerkschaftlich in der FAU organisiert sind. Die FAU Berlin kämpft seitdem für die ...

Sun Oct 19 08:38:00 GMT 2014

The Ebola catastrophe that threatens to be the next deadly pandemic is entirely unleashed by capitalism and will be a holocaust against the poor. ---- It is a product of environmental destruction, overcrowding, hunger and the absence of public health infrastructure - exacerbated by years of war. ---- The virus is not new and has been extensively studied for nearly 40 years, not least because it's first appearance in 1976 in Southern Sudan and then in Congo (from whose Ebola river it gets it's name) was suspected of being a Cold War biological plot by the respective rival super powers. ---- It is one of a range of Haemorrhagic Fever viruses to have dwelt harmlessly in their hosts in deep forest interiors that have crossed the species barrier as environmental exploitation for logging and minerals brings them into closer contact with humans. ...


(en) Ireland, Anarchism, Oppression & Exploitation - Anarchist WSM position paper
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Oct 19 08:37:32 GMT 2014

1. The WSM Constitution’s core point of unity number 7 states: ---- “We actively oppose all manifestations of prejudice within the workers' movement and society in general and we work alongside those struggling against racism, sexism, [religious] sectarianism and homophobia as a priority. We see the success of a revolution and the successful elimination of these oppressions after the revolution being determined by the building of such struggles in the pre-revolutionary period. The methods of struggle that we promote are a preparation for the running of society along anarchist and communist lines after the revolution.” ---- 2. The above point of unity was developed from the individual and collective experiences of WSM members. These informed our adaption of anarchism to our local contexts which includes specific experiences of oppression and personal & historical ...

Esqueceu-se ou que parecem distantes, paradoxalmente, as causas líquido, não são muitos. A causa dos "piratas" da Somália é um deles. Eles eram pescadores antes. Antes do Oceano Índico, onde eles estavam pescando é esvaziada de peixe por arrastões franceses e espanhóis. Antes de suas costas contra a poluição pelo despejo de materiais tóxicos em recipientes de todos os tipos para 30 anos (veja a história Somália Toxic sobre a questão), incluindo fabricantes de uma epidemia de malformações urogenitais entre crianças somalis. Antes de estas águas são patrulhadas por armada formidável (Estados Unidos ao Irã ...!) Para punir esses mendigos desrespeitosas. Antes de chegar a Hollywood com nabo Captain Philips cuja crítica dos Cahiers du cinema Lepastier Joachim coloca: "Esta é uma missão de rotina de recrutamento filme em forma para o capitão Hanks [ator], mas quase ...

Forgotten or that seem distant, paradoxically, at the net causes, there are many. The cause of the "pirates" of Somalia is one. They were fishermen before. Before the Indian Ocean where they were fishing is emptied of fish by French and Spanish trawlers. Before their coasts from pollution by the dumping of toxic materials in containers of all kind for thirty years (see story Toxic Somalia on the issue), including makers of an epidemic of urogenital malformations among Somali children. Before these waters are patrolled by formidable armada (the United States to Iran ...!) To punish these disrespectful beggars. Before getting down to Hollywood with turnip Captain Philips whose criticism of Cahiers du cinema Lepastier Joachim puts it: "This is a film recruitment shaped routine mission for Captain Hanks [actor], but almost Hostage captain Greengrass [director] " .

Des causes oubliées ou qui nous paraissent lointaines, paradoxalement, à l'heure du net, il y en a beaucoup. La cause des «pirates» somaliens est de celle-là. Eux étaient pêcheurs, avant. Avant que l'océan Indien dans lequel ils péchaient ne soit vidé de ses poissons par des chalutiers français et espagnols. Avant que leurs côtes ne soient polluées par le déversement de containers de matières toxiques en tous genre depuis trente ans (voir le reportage Toxic Somalia sur la question), notamment responsables d'une épidémie de malformation urogénitales chez les enfants somaliens. Avant que ces eaux ne soient sillonnées par une armada formidable (des États-Unis à... l'Iran !) destinée à châtier ces gueux irrespectueux. Avant que Hollywood ne s'y mette avec le navet Capitaine Philips dont le critique des Cahiers du cinéma Joachim Lepastier dit si bien : «Voilà un ...


(gr) Aλληλεγγύη στους ένοπλους Κούρδους αντάρτες στη Συρία
a-infos-gr@ainfos.ca
Sat Oct 18 20:51:50 GMT 2014

Εδώ και ένα μήνα, στην πόλη Κομπανί, κοντά στα σύνορα της Συρίας με την Τουρκία, κουρδικές ένοπλες αντάρτικες ομάδες δίνουν έναν αγώνα ενάντια στους φονταμενταλιστές και επεκτατιστές του ISIS. --- Η επίθεση ξεκίνησε στις 15/9 όταν χιλιάδες μαχητές του ISIS, υποστηριζόμενοι από δεκάδες άρματα μάχης και βαρύ πυροβολικό επιτέθηκαν στην πόλη σε τρία μέτωπα. --- Μέχρι αυτή την στιγμή, 2000 κούρδοι πολιτοφύλακες δίνουν ηρωικές μάχες ενάντια στους 10000 μαχητές του ισλαμικού κράτους και έχουν καταφέρει να ανακτήσουν εδάφη μέσα και έξω από την πόλη. --- Οι απώλειες για τον εχθρό είναι μεγάλες τόσο σε έμψυχο δυναμικό αλλά και όσον αφορά βαρύ οπλισμό και οχήματα που πέφτουν στα χέρια των ανταρτών. ...
