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."

"Greece will pay" proclaim in unison the IMF, the EU and the ECB. "The proletariat will pay" retorts Greek employers. Denouncing an "economic coup", the anarcho-syndicalists attack the banks and corporations that are blocking the payment of wages, called for a general strike and anti-capitalist do everything so that the "yes" does not outweigh the referendum on 5 July. ---- There are several months the Greek government, dominated by the leftist coalition Syriza, has decided to engage in negotiations with creditors no way of Greece. ---- Since the start of these negotiations, IMF, ECB, European Commission and Minister of Finance of the European Union (Eurogroup) are pressuring the Greek government to accept a new austerity plan in exchange for the extension of the financial aid. For over four months, these brigands worked to hammer no alternative to their policy was ...

From No Glory In War: ---- In another year we could see many more parts of the education system pledge in perpetuity to be 'armed forces-friendly' and many more schools embrace 'military ethos' activities. As this article explores, the change of government is only likely to entrench these policies, particularly as, with a few exceptions, politicians of all colours are 'on (pro-military) message'. ---- With the military embedded into parts of the education system and its message promoted by schools themselves, a growing number of young people are coming into contact with this pro-military message in their daily lives. ---- That this is happening within education, which is charged with acting in the best interests of students and developing their critical awareness, is very worrying, particularly when there is strong evidence that it is the youngest recruits, from ...

Sat Jul 04 08:21:00 GMT 2015
The Consultoría para los Derechos Humanos y el Desplazamiento (CODHES) expresses its profound distress due to the ongoing humanitarian crisis affecting the Colombian civilian population and especially the Afro Colombian and indigenous populations in the Colombian Pacific region. This region traditionally impacted by a dynamics of structural exclusion has been the most affected by the armed conflict over the last few years to the point that the CODHES Information System has registered more than 368 cases of forced displacement in the region over the last five years. ---- In the 2012 report "The Humanitarian Crisis in Colombia Persists. The Pacific under siege," CODHES warned about an increase in the armed conflict in the Pacific region, a situation that continues to get worse. This increase goes against the quest for peace and heightens the vulnerability of the people who live in ...

Matrix of PC games into our lives beyond the scene of the movie, apart from the real life sense of mobilizing individuals aims to open the doors of their brand new life. ---- Second Life, does the escape from reality? ---- Second Life, inspired by the science fiction novel Snow Crash has developed a simulation environment. The most important rule of the game, the lack of boundaries. If it does based on the user's own imagination and push the boundaries of the imagination. ---- Individuals can be edited in this world completely different from real life, it is self-created avatar.

The antifascist movement, which is struggling to organize despite some encouraging initiatives, could benefit from the FN crisis to energize. But the different currents that struggle against fascism can not do without a true reflection on the strategic plan and the unitary perspective to implement to popularize and expand this struggle. ---- Election after election, the National Front garnered the results of its trivialization-demonization of political and media complacency without actually hindrance. Moreover, it must not neglect the echo met by ideological confusions which also allow its satellites to take advantage of the situation, either once like Days of Wrath early 2014, more diffusely as with the duo-related networks Dieudonné-Soral. The traditional parliamentary political class, discredited among the working classes by his allegiance to the capitalist system, ...

The social mobilization, a revolt aimed at denial of subordination and creating a new social treaty will not negotiate any extension, no "honorable compromise", let alone "partial remission" or whatever is possible proposal of a government that mediates folk need with chartogiakades international capital- as tens pages of "Greek proposal" which is essentially a new memorandum because, regardless of the conditions imposed, continues normally repay the installments on international institutions, while continuing a policy that has nothing positive to give the oppressed. ---- After five months left management of power we can draw some conclusions in view of the referendum on July 5. These conclusions do not arise as products of ideological imperatives and mental exercises, but as observations inspired by the same social struggles, the real needs of the oppressed. The ...

Thu Jul 02 07:49:08 GMT 2015
Yannis Androulidakis, the anarcho-syndicalist Initiative Rocinante, talks about the political and social situation in Greece, Syriza government and the state of social and Greek anarchist movement. ---- What is the overall political climate since the election of Syriza, what measures have been taken and how to qualify their policy? ---- Yannis Androulidakis: In the beginning, we have witnessed a great surge of enthusiasm of a part of society, but this is mainly based on the defeat of the odious government Samaras (right coalition of national union / socialist) and some spectacular communication actions by the Finance Minister Yannis Varoufakis. ---- But it only took a few weeks to check that the policy is not changed by governments.

https://melbacg.wordpress.com/the-anvil/ ---- The articles will be published as separate articles over coming weeks. ---- In Solidarity, Ablokeimet for MACG. ---- Let's knock the whole wall down ---- We must go a few steps further, therefore, than just engaging in anti-racist and antifascist organising. We must fight the ongoing displacement of Aboriginal people from their homelands in Western Australia. We must fight the mass incarceration and illegalisation of people seeking asylum in this country. We must confront all of these “single” issues. They are part of an entire against the working class and our communities, by the Government, capital and the State. ---- Reclaim Australia is one brick in the wall Let's knock the whole wall down ---- It looks like we are in for another round of Reclaim Australia's Islamophobic, racist and anti-Left ...

Wed Jul 01 10:54:41 GMT 2015
The first pride event was Christopher Street Liberation Day. It was held one year after the Stonewall Riots and aimed to bring together an oppressed community to rally against the forces of the state and capitalism that were keeping them down. Fast forward to Glasgow in 2015 and out pride event (in August, whatever), has stalls confirmed from such members of "the community" as: ---- The Army, Navy and Air Force; you know, the same army, navy and air force who are being deployed to stop people fleeing persecution for being queer. ---- Police Scotland who, when 1 in 4 homeless youth are queer; help keep homeless people out of safe places to kip, protect shopfulls of food from being passed to those who are hungry, that are making sex work unsafe for those who rely on it to get by, and who attack migrants and refugees. ...
