Syndication Of A-Infos - including RDF - How to Syndicate A-Infos

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."

The campaign works to build solidarity and aid for those in prison. IWOC works with their families, communities and allies on the outside. From everyday needs to the direct support for prisoner resistance, IWOC works to build the movement against injustice! ---- Prisoners are on the front lines of the struggle against wage slavery and forced slave labor conditions, where refusal to work while in prison results in inhumane retaliation.

This action is a wasteful way government by May 10 is celebrated every night of 2016 that was held in Heydar Aliyev's birthday. Aliyev is sure to be a cult of personality, such an action by the government (the son Ilham Aliyev's presidency) firmly condemnedand activists were detained on May 10, 2016. Police planted drugs on them. ---- This is not the first dirty game played by the state in Azerbaijan. Absolute every threat directed at the ruling to cover up with a variety of calipers and happy people, who tried to create the perception of the state free state, imprisoning behind the revolutionary action of each drug lie shows political personalities as a drug addict. However, we do not need to be numbed our ideas that we know very well. ...

Fri May 27 07:52:05 GMT 2016
Whenever the FAU – Freie Arbeiterinnen und Arbeiter Union (Free Workers Union) Berlin gets involved in conflicts at a workplace, we tend to quickly be successful. The bosses’ wrongdoings are oftentimes beyond good and evil so that small actions can already lead to concessions on their side. Right now, however, we are stuck in a number of wage conflicts: eight of our Romanian colleagues have been exploited on the construction site of the “Mall of Berlin” and still, after two years of struggle, have not received any payment! The people responsible are hiding behind a chain of sub-contractors, trying to demoralize us with lengthy lawsuits. ---- Another colleague has been tricked out of more than 1000 Euros of wages by a restaurant. This is very commonplace in the gastronomy sector. Yet, in this case the boss is not just reluctant to pay but has obtained an injunction against our ...

On May 15, 2016 it is given the 68th anniversary of the Nakba (disaster), the expulsion of the Palestinian people from their land after being declared the State of Israel a day earlier, on May 14. This event occurred within an orchestrated plan long for the old imperialist powers Britain and France, who were the primary drivers of Zionism and its expansion in Palestinian territories. ---- United Nations awarded the State of Israel more than 50% of Palestinian territory and since 1948 the Zionist state of Israel begins an act of genocide and ethnic cleansing that lasts until today. Zionists systematically expelled from their land have 80% of the Palestinian population, with initial support from England and United Nations, and the US unconditional covenant to the Hebrew state and its machinery of war and destruction against the Arabs. ...

We placed this banner on the Manhattan Bridge to demonstrate our complete and total solidarity with the Kurdish resistance in Bakur. We hope to shed light on the current war of aggression in Kurdistan, unleashed by the Turkish state with unrelenting US complicity. The barbarism of the Turkish state, and its NATO patrons, have reached unprecedented heights and we call on anarchists and revolutionaries worldwide to take immediate action in solidarity with the rebels in Kurdistan. ---- While much of the world has plunged into darkness the revolutionary movement in Kurdistan stands in stark contrast. From the United States to Hungary, from Turkey to Brazil the forces of reaction are on the offensive. Our task seems daunting when we comprehend the totality of forces against us. But this is precisely why the revolution in Rojava and the struggle in Bakur is so important for humanity. ...

Friday, several meetings of strikers decided to continue the movement; This is the case in Paris East, Paris Austerlitz, Paris-Saint-Lazare, Sotteville, Grenoble, Saint-Jean de Maurienne, Tours, ... ---- This is insufficient to push back the bosses of the rail sector, and too localized to help win against the proposed labor law. But those who struggle right! The strikers maintain a movement that is not finished and will allow it to restart. ---- Of course, the situation would have been better if the CGT had not given instruction to stop the strike after 48 hours without taking the opinion of the AG and all of the SUD-Rail and FO unions had raised the slogan of renewable strike. ---- Procrastinated enough, that the unions show their usefulness in organizing and supporting the ongoing strike, they gave voice democracy general meetings where the strikers decide ...

The situation in the Middle East reveals every day a little more cynicism of French and Western leaders, who under the pretext of defending the people or to combat terrorism seek above all to safeguard their interests. And from Paris to Aleppo via Raqqa, people toast. ---- The Russian military intervention alongside Assad and Iran has changed the situation in Syria and the Middle East. Militarily, the balance of power has been reversed, the defensive army of the regime has gone on the offensive. She has regained some of the ground lost in 2015, it marked important points to achieve the strategic goal of regaining control of the borders with Jordan and Turkey. Russian aerial bombardments have significantly degraded the operational capacity of all the tendencies of the armed opposition, including Daech. ...

THE CHRYSAFGITES civil WANT THE POOR, WHY ARE minions capitalists. ---- So here Nazi gang began again erupt from the holes that had loufaxei. Seeing backs that makes judicial and political power and the degeneration of the trial (most recently we had the limitation of offenses for the pogroms of May 2011), it seems that took courage. Has heavy responsibilities and SYRIZA - ANEL government that its policy wreaking memoranda,anti-labor laws, poverty, unemployment, frustration. This policy gives ground the fascists to promote their dirty propaganda. ---- So apart from the known antics that make the House (the business interests of various groups could not do something else), since the first day of their presence there many times as needed to support and their deputies by voting of capital and especially the shipowners, they did it with great joy ...
