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."
(en) anarkismo.net: Lessons of the Russian Revolution: Workers' Revolutions are Different from Capitalist Revolutions by Wayne Price
Wed Apr 26 07:44:18 GMT 2017
The Danger of Substitutionism ---- The Russian Revolution of 1917 demonstrates the dangers of a revolutionary minority taking over, setting up its own state, and substituting itself for the working class and oppressed. ---- The following is based on my notes for a panel presentation. I was invited to give it at the April 8, 2017, convention of the Platypus Association, a rather academic Marxist organization. The panel topic was on the meaning of the 1917 Russian Revolution for today. This is a topic widely discussed on the Left this year, the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. I was to express the minority viewpoint of an anarchist (antiauthoritarian socialist). However, a rainstorm and a flight cancellation intervened and I did not give the presentation. This is more-or-less what I was going to say. ...

No words to say together, no day, no text is harder than this. Everything that will be missing now is going to be missing. ---- On the shoulders of dreams of a struggle that extends to the freedom of man and the earth. Your freedom is against the justice in front of the black flag of the rebellion. If you are like a good seed that has fallen to good soil, anarchy, you've left yourself as one of the most beautiful flowers all over this geography. ---- It was a struggle for the roads without regard for the deaths and immortality. It is a path from Eskisehir to Istanbul, from Ankara to Mersin and from everywhere to Suruç for "an unlimited, classless, immovable world against all the powers that created artificial borders that sanctify death." ---- We have not seen the cruel persecution, the government's courage in rebellion, and the lack of faith in it. ...

Wed Apr 26 07:43:34 GMT 2017
Another demonstration that the scale of sentences is very mobile ! And that Burkinabe justice is only sovereign if the French state consents ... ---- In June 2015, a soldier of the French special forces deployed in Burkina Faso as part of an anti-terrorist operation engaged in touching two girls aged 3 and 5. To be sure of his right and to film and to forget the camera at the mother of one of the girls, he was denounced to the French embassy then to the Burkinabe authorities who let the French justice take care of it. ---- Imagine an African soldier who is guilty of such acts in France left to the care of the justice of his country ? ---- The armies are violent and it is not the first time, and certainly not the last time, that French soldiers are accused of sexual assault in Africa. And it is not the first time either that virtually impunity " sanctions " these behaviors. ...

"For my part I had made myself a mountain of this enterprise. I was half persuaded, in my heart, that I would never succeed." ---- Alternative libertarian reproduces the blog posts Kurdistan-Autogestion-Revolution , travel diary of a fellow committed to the YPG. ---- Over the course of the weeks, he will testify to the life of the fighting militias, the debates that take place there and the experience of democratic confederalism in the liberated zones. ---- Academy of YPG Training for Foreign Volunteers, Canton of Cizérre, April 12, 2017 ---- Today a fairly succinct note ! On the one hand because I do not want to give too much detail on the itinerary and the crossing of borders by the foreign volunteers. On the other hand, because the experience has already been amply described by the comrade responding to the pseudo de Vicomte de Valnoir. ...

Wed Apr 26 07:43:03 GMT 2017
With the ratification of Ceta (free trade agreement with Canada) on January 15, 2017, a step is taken. For the media and think tanks who still believed in it, it was the end of European democracy ; For the economy it is probably the beginning of a crisis of production ... unless a start. ---- Can Ceta be stopped yet ? This " mixed " treaty applies " provisionally " as soon as the European Parliament ratifies it, before the ratification of the national parliaments, therefore, for the areas that are within the competence of the European Union. That is to say, almost all its contents, in fact: the 98 % reduction in taxes at the borders, the application of import and export quotas, the competition of products, etc. Everything but the highly controversial ISDS (or ICS), the state / enterprise arbitration procedure by courts favorable to private interests. ...

Tue Apr 25 07:07:16 GMT 2017
Libertarian Gorges ---- Venezuela is currently experiencing one of the worst crises in history, where as usual the people became victims of the puppeteers who handle our circumstances and our living conditions making it increasingly difficult to simply exist in front of all that and what the Status quo here does not mention, we as Venezuelan anarchists need to set a position and publicly express our opinion. ---- 1. We reject the application of the Inter-American Democratic Charter and affirm that by the mechanism it contains, it is an act in which the same states that violate human rights, authoritarian and corrupt, will condemn their fellow human beings (in this case, it will be the Mexican State currently administered by Peña Nieto, the country of the common fossils, or the Chilean state, which specializes in suppressing manifestations of the Mapuche peoples, or ...

We are forced to go on the road to answer the requirements of capital. To demand signing collective agreements, reduced redundancy threshold repealing ypokatotatou wage, restoring three-year, better and safer working conditions. To fight against undeclared work, to demand benefits for the unemployed. We have to get out with aggressive spearhead the road through militant base unions in workplaces. Redo syndicalism dangerous for the bosses away from ergatopateres-union bureaucrats (GSEE PAME). To take our lives in our hands. ---- A small tool for the new anti-labor law ---- Lately monitor the media ridicule as our working class, with the government giving supposedly fierce battles with the institutions in a game is already rigged.
