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."

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Mar 07 06:32:58 GMT 2021

The IWA wants to publicly condemn a series of attacks that our sections have been suffering for many years in several parts of the world. Once again, we are forced to defend our international organization from similar aggressions. ---- It is hard to say when all these attacks started, but we will take the risk and say that they started in 2016, when still being sections of the IWA, the Spanish CNT and the Italian USI published statements about the need to relaunch the IWA. These sections had been proposing to the IWA Congress a bunch of motions that were rejected. They proposed to give the majority of the votes in the IWA to a few sections, including the predominant Spanish CNT, and to give access to the IWA exclusively to "big" organizations. The proposed changes in the voting system ...

Sun Mar 07 06:31:48 GMT 2021

How are protests unfolding in Belarus and how are anarchists resisting intensifying state repression? We talked about this with the Belarusian anarchist Maria. ---- During the previous six months of repression, the Belarusian anarchist movement has affected a lot, affecting groups and individuals. Why are anarchists so afraid so much? ---- No state likes anarchists, because we will always be in opposition to every power. The Czechia is no exception, I read about Operation Phoenix - and this is a European country where there is no dictatorship like in Belarus. ---- Anarchists have been actively involved in Belarusian political life since the 1990s. Anarchist unions were active in Homel, anarchist newspapers were published in Minsk, and anarchist ecologists opposed plans to ...

Sun Mar 07 06:31:33 GMT 2021

This is a call for solidarity with Ruymán Rodríguez, anarchist repressed, tortured and persecuted by the Spanish state for housing the poor. Below is a statement by GAF London as well as a translation of the one released by Federación Anarquista Gran Canaria. These two pieces were originally shared via Green Anti-Capitalist Media (here). Ruymán Rodríguez is the author of Street Anarchy, a collection of three articles which we translated and published May 2020. ---- The editor wishes to express our complete solidarity Ruymán and other Anarchists who are suffering at the hands a brutal and uncaring state. Solidarity is a weapon of liberation and you comrades, have mine. - P

Occupation of Labor Center for Solidarity with the Hunger Strike Dimitris Koufontinas ---- The revolutionary Dimitris Koufontinas is on the 55th day of a hunger strike, refusing to receive medical treatment and hydration. He fights with all his might for a life defined by intransigence, resistance and dignity, against the revenge of the right and the diplomatic circles of domestic and international terrorism. The struggle of the partner is not an individualized claim that concerns privileged treatment but the collective attempt to stand tall against fear and terror. ---- We are two worlds in conflict. And this conflict can only be a collective affair for the world of resistance and struggle. Because the same state that leads to the death of the revolutionary D. Koufontinas, ...

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Mar 07 06:27:43 GMT 2021

Amsterdam editions have reissued Kobayashi's first novel this year. March 15, 1928 is a short novel with fictional characters but which looks like a documentary so much the author is concerned to bear witness to the events he attends. ---- Perhaps you have already read Takiji Kobayashi'sFactory Ship ? Written in 1929 and reissued in 2008, it has since become a true bestseller to the point of giving rise to the expression kanikôsen (making a factory boat) to describe precarious work in Japan! ---- The Amsterdam editions reissued this year Kobayashi's first novel, March 15, 1928 . And this one is just as essential. Like Le Bateau-Factory, March 15, 1928 is a short novel with fictional characters but which looks like a documentary as the author is keen to bear witness to the ...

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Mar 07 06:22:34 GMT 2021

Recently, following the educational restructuring that has taken place in recent years, the new bill on education was passed, which, among other things, provides for changes in the way of admission to higher education, introduces a student limit and establishes the creation of a university police corps. These changes are aimed at strengthening class barriers, further restricting admissions to higher education, intensifying studies, disciplining, controlling and suppressing student struggles. All this is happening in the midst of a pandemic and a traffic ban, with universities being completely wiped out as they operate through distance learning and the resistances that spring from there are quite reduced. Of course, passing bills in dead time, ...

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Mar 07 06:22:06 GMT 2021

Vaccines against the coronavirus are the subject of fierce competition between private companies, the consequences of which on the health of populations are considerable: approval under pressure, job cuts and reduction in production capacities ... the irrationality of the market contributes to the current shortage. How to make vaccines a common good of humanity? ---- Pfizer and BioNTech announced on November 9 that they had an effective vaccine. A ridiculous shallot race ensued with Moderna regarding the effectiveness of their respective vaccines. But what is less funny is that while this vaccine was not yet scientifically validated[1], behind the scenes these companies raised the stakes with the governments, who in turn wanted to have these vaccines approved. as soon ...

Rallies, road blockades, actions to slow down traffic, free admission on toll roads ... Small in size, but stubborn protests of the yellow vest movement, which on February 27 held its 120th "act of protest", are continuing throughout France. ---- In Paris, they organized two demonstrations. One of them moved at 13.00 from the Reilly / Diderot metro and walked along the streets of Reilly and Charonne, avenue Philippe-August, boulevards Menilmontand and Belleville, rue Faubourg du Temple, Place de la Republique, boulevards Saint-Martin, Saint-Denis and Beaune Nouvelle, Rue Hauteville, Abbeville, Aubourg-Poissonniere and Boulevard Rochechouart, ending at 4.30 pm at the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre.

Sat Mar 06 08:17:19 GMT 2021

Last week a report on the results of a survey of the British publics attitude to inequality (pre- and) post-COVID by the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) and Kings College London (KCL) was published. In its reporting of the results of this survey the Guardian newspaper bent over backwards to try and interpret the results as showing the selfish, sexism and racism of the populace. "Kings College London study also revealed negative views of minorities are still common" the subheadline stated, with the piece then opening with: ---- "In findings that will raise fears over inequalities in Britain, a study of attitudes by researchers at Kings College London showed a significant minority thought a widening post-Covid income gap between white people and BAME groups would not be a problem." ...

Sat Mar 06 08:15:42 GMT 2021

HENRY SCHEIN, a multinational company supplying medical equipment, present in more than 22 countries, supplying medical and clinical equipment. As such, it should come as no surprise that the current pandemic has significantly increased its turnover. In Spain, it's also been awarded profitable contracts with the public health service. ---- Regardless, last September 11, the company dismissed 9 workers at its warehouse and logistics centre in Seseña-Toledo, Spain, based on alleged production needs. During the following months, they have dismissed more workers from other centres, which is evidence of the company implementing an in-depth organizational rearrangement. The alleged causes for the dismissals are false. The company is using them to hide its ongoing reduction of labour costs, ...
