Syndication Of A-Infos - including RDF - How to Syndicate A-Infos
In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles
languages, covering a wide
range of areas.
In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles
languages, covering a wide
range of areas.
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.
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."

At the time of recording the album Attica Blues in 1972, saxophonist Archie Shepp has behind him a reputation as a champion of African-American cause in jazz.

In an interview with U.S. magazine SPIT dating from 1990, he returns to this pivotal moment in the civil rights movement and free jazz: "Blacks and whites who had previously listened to black music exclusively for entertaining began seriously listen to John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Albert Ayler and myself. I think we have expanded the horizons of music, and young whites were politicized through us as well as the civil rights movement ". ...
(en) Greece, “THE DEMOCRATIC ASSOCIATION OF PEOPLE IN PATRAS AND THE NEWSPAPER ‘HELLENIC DEMOCRACY’ by DIMITRIS TROADITIS
Wed Apr 23 14:52:12 GMT 2014
In this article, Troaditis investigates the Democratic Association of People, that was actually the first anarchist organised collective appeared in Greece. A collective that obtained regular contacts with the Jura Federation and agreed with their positions. This was happened in 1875 in Patras, in Western Peloponnese, a city of a big importance, as it was one of the gates to the then Greece from Europe. Is was a significant harbour where a small but active proletariat — especially consisted of the sultana-box makers and other workers- and where the anarchist ideas found a fertile soil to be developed further. ---- * Download the complete article here: Dimitris Troaditis – The Democratic Association of People in Patras and the Newspaper Hellenic Democracy http://ithanarquista.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/dimitris-troaditis-the-democratic-association-of-people-in-patras-and-the-newspaper-hellenic-democracy.pdf ...

In the initiation day of Bachelet government, we spoke with Melissa Sepulveda, president of the DATE, to elucidate what the main guidelines and perspectives of the student movement are. ---- In midsummer, as are we all talking about the Festival de Viña, we met in a DATE almost empty but already the hub of our colleague, as we have seen, it is required by the media. ---- Melissa acknowledges the debt that the student movement is transcendental and address: say and define what "quality" in education or what content we speak. And it is here that a libertarian woman can make a difference and set the tone in the debate, because not enough education in which we can access all the same, whether that education is going to continue playing the same vices of capitalism and patriarchy.

(en) Palestine-Israel, Though it seems lot of things are going to change soon - it is done in a slow motion*
Wed Apr 23 05:06:31 GMT 2014
The prolonged status quo between the Israeli ruling elite and the Palestinian elite reach a climax. Changes in the balances of power within the Israeli capitalist elite is still in slow motion, but you can feel the vibrations. The joint struggle of the Palestinian grass root activists and the Israeli radicals is not expanding, but the new wave of total refusnic military service of Israeli youth - which already passed the hundred seems promising. The joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah, South Hebron Hills, Arkib (within Israel) and other places from time to time keep the flame in spite of the harsh repression. The involvement of Israeli Jews and to a lesser measure international activists still prevent a massive bloody massacre of the unarmed Palestinian demonstrators. ...

Libertarian activist, he was a manual laborer, teacher, photographer, journalist in France, Spain and Latin America. ---- Fervent participant in the Spanish Revolution, it is very early aware of the unfavorable balance of power antifascist camp. He then began to "collect for the future results of this unique experience" , examines "on the spot, in collectivized villages, in the factories and socialized factories, the constructive work of the Spanish Revolution" , based on the self-management and direct democracy. ---- The achievements of the era are not only the result of spontaneous collective tendencies.

This initially desired by the popular classes to slaughter against Terror-revolutionary regime, turns against them. ---- Since August 10, 1792, what started as a limited bourgeois revolution, with the aim to establish a constitutional monarchy, was packed.
