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 current 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 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) - Members of the WSM took part in the Belfast Feminist Network’s counter demonstration against Precious Life’s annual Christmas Caroling.
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sat Dec 20 21:25:37 GMT 2014

Precious Life’s event was advertised as an ”“Empty Manger” Candle-light Carol Service” outside the Marie Stopes Clinic in Belfast City Centre for “missing babies” – babies “missing” due to abortion we assume. ---- This event was extremely insensitive and triggering for people who genuinely wanted a baby this Christmas but are without due to miscarriage, stillborn, postnatal afflictions or any other reason. None of these cases were taken into account by Precious Life, adding to the argument that as soon as the child is out of the womb they no longer care for it. ---- The counter demonstration involved members of the Belfast Feminist Network arriving next to them with a sound system playing songs related to feminism or choice. Some taking part in Precious Life’s event were enraged by this and demanded that the PSNI shut our counter demonstration down – this did ...

For (the) who fell fighting ... Not a day without memory! ... ---- For the torturers and principals ... Not a moment's rest! ---- Do not forget nor forgive! ---- The year 1968 was one of the busiest and combative of the 1960s in Brazil and worldwide. Protests, marches, strikes, demonstrations, events, etc. took to the streets of large cities leading large masses of the population to protest the Boulevard tupiniquins. As distinct from the European, Latin American located in Brazil denounced the arrests, abductions, disappearances, torture and deaths that piled up after the civil-military coup of April 1, 1964. ---- The core of the 1968 demonstrations originated especially in the student movement that was set illegally since the coup (where the headquarters of the National Union of Students (UNE) was burned) and because of the murder - committed by agents of the ...

Tuesday [16 December 2014], at 5am, began the aptly named anti-terrorist operation called "Pandora", against the so-called "anarchist terrorism". People were arrested, accused of belonging to an anarchist organization to which several attacks by explosive devices are assigned. The operation, led by the National Court in Madrid, has mobilized 450 cops Mossos d'Esquadra Catalan, who from 5:30 raided 13 homes in Catalonia - 8 in Barcelona, a Sabadell and Manresa - but also a person in Madrid by the Guardia Civil. ---- The cops are back in the squat Kasa de la Muntanya [open since 1989], Barcelona, around which hundreds of police were deployed during a helicopter assisted the operation by illuminating the scene. The media have the Kasa de la Muntanya as the "operational center of anarchist terrorists" ( sic ). The search lasted more than 13 hours, during which the twenty ...

TALLER LIBERTARIO ALFREDO LOPEZ'S STAND ---- Regarding the release of prisoners and the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between the Cuba and USA governments. ---- 1. The"normalization" of diplomatic relations between the governments of the USA and Cuba should help eliminate many antiquated impediments imposed by these very same governments upon basic human bonds in both countries. ---- 2. We celebrate, together with those freed from the prisons and their families who have just received their love ones at home, free -at last!- after many years of "legal" incarceration. ---- 3. Nevertheless, we do not know the terms of these negotiations. It has been done for effect and fosters a miracle mentality leaving us as passive spectators. ---- 4. We are also worried about new opportunities emerging for more and improved capitalist exploitation of our people. ...

Meetings attended by thousands of people have been held in several cities of Spain in the wake of arrests of anarchists by police on the morning of December 16. In the course of a special operation code-named “Pandora”, the police tracked down activists whom they intended to accuse of organizing terrorist acts. As a result, 14 people were arrested; three were later released. ---- This operation against the libertarian movement was conducted by the Spanish Audiencia Nacional [a special unit of the judiciary to combat "terrorism"] and the Catalonian police. Round-ups, searches, and arrests were carried out at squats of the “Casa de la Montaña” district of Barcelona, at the libertarian San-Andres reading room, and the anarchist Poble-Sec reading room, as well as at 15 private homes. The inhabitants were caught by surprise. At the same time, several adjacent streets were ...

What can anarchists learn from ongoing popular struggles against racism and police murder? How can anarchists and anarchist thought help to expand resistance beyond the tired reformist calls for new mayors and new police chiefs to target the underlying nexus of white supremacy and state violence behind the constant killing of black youth? ---- Come join the New York local of the Black Rose Anarchist Federation for report-backs from Ferguson and a panel discussion on anti-racist praxis and anarchism with dedicated anarchist militants from across the northeast. ...

".... Police in Bristol are using "Stasi tactics" to harass people who hold left-wing views, anarchist groups in the city have claimed. ---- The claims follow police efforts to track down those behind a series of arson and criminal damage offences. ---- Sam, from Bristol Defendant Solidarity (BDS), said: "It most certainly does look like harassment to the people on the receiving end of it." ---- Police admitted visiting peoples' homes and workplaces but denied harassment. ---- Police say they are searching for a suspect called Huw Norfolk - also known as "Badger" - in connection with the attacks. ---- 'Quite forceful' ---- Referring to the secret police in the former East Germany, Sam, who did not want to give his full name, said: "That often repeated saying, 'If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear' was invented by the Stasi. ...


(en) WSM.ie, Ireland, The Water Charges: After we win what comes next by
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Fri Dec 19 13:45:39 GMT 2014

The revolt against the water charges is of a size and militancy that if we stay on the streets we will certainly win. But the revolt has also exposed in plain view the level of co-operation between media, politicians, big businessmen like Denis O’Brien and the gardaí. All have acted together to cajole, bully and suppress protest and then to lie and distort events. ---- While we might defeat the water charges they come at the end of a long sequence of cuts in services and wages, a period of unemployment and emigration. all this takes place in a society where people are marginalised because of their gender, migration status, sexuality and whether they are settled or Traveller. Stepping back and looking at the whole picture, is this really the sort of society any of us would build for our children given a choice? ...
