A-INFOS-ORG

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.

A-INFOS VISION

The A-Infos Project is coordinated by an international collective of revolutionary anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist activists, involved with class struggle and who regard it as a total social struggle.

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."

Although the Constitution protects the rights of whistle-blowers, and we have laws that are meant to promote their rights (such as the Protected Disclosures Act), in reality there is not much protection for whistle-blowers and such people face huge challenges. ---- For example, people who "blow the whistle" on their employers often lose their jobs (even though the law says you cannot be ired for whistle-blowing). Sometimes the corrupt person will say the whistle-blower has broken the law and hire a lawyer to threaten them, or take them to court. Sometimes whistleblowers have even been hurt or killed! ---- South Africa's whistleblowers are being targeted, intimidated and silenced. ---- We must stand with them!

I do not see how to begin this text because it is a subject that is difficult. J'suis a 22 year old guy. This text came to me, or rather drifting during a drift with a few friends. I was an activist with some long especially in the student movement, he did not really know my past. I found them in the opening and they have prompted me to write the story I told them. ---- Start by saying that I was young, young and ignorant. I do not really have my place in the microcosm of a multi. It was classic, there were athletes, skateux , the geeks , nerds and so on. Even if I could associate myself with some groups, I was just gravitate. I lived a little frustration, boiling anger, I tend to isolate myself and marginalize me. Secondary 3, I met some people who lived the same discomfort. At the end of the year, we were ten, several listened to metal music, some hardcore and some, like ...

MEETING THURSDAY NIGHT July 31st in a new venue in Newcastle- those who know us should get in touch via their normal methods ---- Meet and greet:) ---- We are happy with people getting involved over something specific, and then living their own life again apart from the everyday NEA organising. In todays 24/7 society this is increasingly likely. ---- SO! On September 13th 2014 we are organising a North East Anarchists conference, and we would likely some input and practical help, which we will be discussing at this meeting..

(en) Australia, Anarchist Affinity - The Platform #2 - Interview with Kojo Barbah from South London Anti-Fascists and the Anti-Raids Network by Guest Author
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Thu Jul 31 21:48:23 GMT 2014

Kojo Barbah is a London based activist and a founding member of South London Anti-Fascists. He is also a member of the direct action migrant solidarity organisation the Anti-Raids Network. ---- Maybe we can begin by discussing the origins of South London Anti-Fascists (SLAF). Though London is a city with a long, continuous and quite notorious history of anti-fascist organising, SLAF only came to my attention last year, in the wake of the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich on May 22nd. How and when did the group come together? Was the decision to reactivate the group out of mere necessity, in response to far-right attempts to capitalise on Rigby's death, or were there other factors? ---- South London Anti-Fascists were originally formed by trade unionists in 2008, namely Battersea and Wandsworth Trade Union Council and Croydon Trade Union Council. ...


(en) African Anarchist Collective Tokologo #3 - Khutsong: Pre-emptive "crime-stopping" leads to police brutality By BONGANI MAPONYANE ?TAAC, ZACF?
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Thu Jul 31 15:37:32 GMT 2014

Khutsong has not been at peace, facing a high police deployment, supposedly to combat crime.The government was adamant about cleaning up the streets in Khutsong. This followed certain brutal crimes. ---- Police Rapid Response Teams were put in place, monitoring the usage of alcohol and drugs, and the illegal trade in goods, to try to combat and eradicate crime. The Technical Response Team was also a big part of the crime bust. ---- From 3 to 31 December 2013, all the taverns in Khutsong were raided by police looking for drugs, wanted persons or public disturbances. They also dealt heavy-handedly and immorally with vendors: small township businesses on street corners where most of the teenagers hang around during the weekends. Older people say that these kids are thugs and nyaope smokers, and conclude that those who stand on the corners are the culprits causing disorder in society. ...


(en) Australia, Anarchist Affinity - The Platform #2 - Welfare Attacks and Collective Resistance by Rebecca Winter
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Thu Jul 31 15:36:41 GMT 2014

The Liberal government has initiated one of the most significant attacks on the rights and conditions of welfare recipients in Australia that has been seen in decades. ---- The cuts ---- One of the key changes proposed is tightened restrictions and greater compliance requirements for unemployed people under 30 on Newstart or Youth Allowance payments. From July 2015, young people will be forced to endure a six-month 'waiting period' before they will receive any unemployment benefits (a 'hunger period' or 'homeless period' might be a more accurate description). During this period welfare claimants will be required to look for 40 jobs per month or risk an extended removal of support, even if they find casual or part-time work. Unemployed young people will also have to wait until they are 25 (rather than 22) to receive the marginally more liveable Newstart payment, which provides $100 ...

In this moment of intense attacks on the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip by the terrorist State of Israel and in which the oppressed peoples of various parts of the world stand in solidarity, we of the Federação Anarquista Gaúcha in reaffirming the solidarity manifested maximum Palestinian people. We defend the self-determination of all peoples and oppressed of the world and, in that sense, we believe that an urgent and immediate measure to give an end to all attacks against the territory of Palestine is necessary.

We know that this is an unarmed people that has been attacked daily. There are thousands of murders of women, men and children and, with the resurgence of attacks by the State of ...

Amid heightened attention and pressure against the increasingly repressive police state instead, which did not lack in recent days were good laughs. The news that Bakunin was in the same survey which many activists were arrested in Rio de Janeiro was the height of absurdity. In the survey, Bakunin is identified as "potential suspect" and that because of protesters they had mentioned his name in phone calls. Several initiatives have been taken, especially in social networks, to expose the absurd situation of political persecution, exposing the absurdity of the "evidence" presented, exposing the ignorance of research, finally exposing the farce of that investigation. ---- We live in times controversial Brazilian politics. With the "case Bakunin," the Brazilian repression once again demonstrates its weaknesses also shows that it also disrupts and emburrece as it ...

All and all sincere anticolonial support the Palestinian people, despite government bans, despite the anti-Semitic parasites who try to pollute our gatherings. ---- Everywhere in France, demonstrations took place in the past two weeks to support the Palestinian people in Gaza bombed by the State of Israel. In Paris, thousands of people gathered despite the prohibitions of the government and a hard police and judicial repression that such targeted Alain Pojolat activist NPA indicted for organizing the demonstration in Paris July 19, prohibited by Prefecture. ---- This mobilization is nothing other than an expression of solidarity with a people fighting against a colonial, racist and bellicose state. ---- However, it was observed in the presence Paris gatherings, but very visible minority, explicitly anti-Semitic individuals, soralo-dieudonnistes making dumplings or ...
