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."

Mon Aug 03 14:34:03 GMT 2015
A comrade from the CNTE who worked as a psychologist with drug dependant persons at CIBE/ Red Cross Alicante was unfairly dismissed, without good reason or proper process from her job of 8 years.

Mon Aug 03 14:29:21 GMT 2015
The cartoon on the left is from a few months ago but expresses how Kurds saw the role of the Turkish state towards ISIS and the conflict in Syria. Considerable evidence of support for ISIS from the Turkish state has been published in the international media over the last months. An ISIS commander told the Washington Post on August 12, 2014, "We used to have some fighters -- even high-level members of the Islamic State -- getting treated in Turkish hospitals." ---- This Sunday the Observer revealed details of a US Special forces raid on an ISIS compound. "One senior western official familiar with the intelligence gathered at the slain leader's compound said that direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now "undeniable"." Oil smuggling was what that ISIS leader was co-ordinating with the Turkish officials and ISIS were getting an "estimated ...
(en) iwa-ait: CLARIFICATION REGARDING THE LIBERTARIAN FEDERATION OF MEXICO (ca)
Sun Aug 02 09:10:08 GMT 2015
In recent weeks, there have been some texts by unions in Spain, concerning the Libertarian Federation of Mexico, his claims to be supported by "laCNT, the AIT, the FAI and IFA" and his allegations of the Anarchist Federation from Mexico. ---- The AIT has never been in contact with the Libertarian Federation of Mexico. ---- Perhaps one source of confusion might have been the unauthorized publication of a letter of support from the so-called CNT Catalunya. This CNT-Catalunya used the initials "CNT" in the header of his letters and his label, but is not part of the AIT and not belonging to the Member Section in Spain (CNT). The CNT-Catalunya later clarified that this was not an official publication. ---- At the same time, it is noted that compensates the organization in question is 20 years since 1995, not part of the CNT-AIT.

This initiative is promoted by a group of militants and activists from different social movements and unions of Aragon. We are people who participate individually in anarcosindicatos, student organizations or social centers as well as other collectives and base assemblies both districts as sector. ---- We understand that the 15M supposed an inflection point in the way of understanding politics and live with enthusiasm and in different squares of our cities and towns were created spaces for encounter and political debate that hitherto did not happen. However we see how the evolution of speech "does not represent us" culminated in a electioneering turning these social movements, a result of not being able to articulate a speech by outside institutions, to speak only of goals as abstract as the end of capitalism or the abolition of the state when it is necessary to be ...
