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."

In Paris, the second armored division has only given the death-blow to the Germans. Even before the arrival of Allied troops in the city of lights, the people, led by the resisters of the FFI, was already in full insurrection against the occupiers. Eisenhower, then Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe will even say, "We gave the final blow to the enemy, but Paris was already in the hands of the Parisians. "However, significant events occurred before the insurrection spreads. The first is the railway strike of 10 August 1944. ---- More trains for the Nazis! ---- Seeing the Allies landed in Normandy, the General Confederation of Labour (CGT) decided to put the general strike in its priorities. On 14 July 1944, national holiday in France, several strikes and demonstrations were held in Ile-de-France. A Ivry, railway became stop, which spawned a ...

In the middle of the race of the 1st round, where the 7th world economy will decide their fate referring to will and disinformation 79th world society in HDI index, one must make a series of reflections. For this we need to go beyond denouncing the emptying of democracy in its liberal and indirect version. I understand we live in a structural problem that is directly related to two phenomena. The first involves the individualization of everyday life, with tasks that multiply times and exhausted. Capitalism in its informational was not giving enough time for the collective life and even less to the massive political experiences. When this occurs, we have a "crisis", as in June 2013 Healthy "crisis" by the way. ---- In the absence of full capacity to participate and critique, representative democracy ends up becoming a ritual where they decide perceive little about what they are ...
(en) IFA, For The Caribbean Anarchist Federation by Caribbean Anarchist Federation
Mon Sep 01 09:59:56 GMT 2014
The Caribbean has been one of the privileged settings where the so called modernity, that explosive mixture of capitalism and statism, has shown its least respectable face to the world. That persistent and well distributed barbarism, among the agents of the Spanish, English, French, Dutch... empires has created, centuries later, a world of detached islanders, attentive to the signs of the old and the new colonial metropolis and castrated, in many cases, from the possibility to talk among ourselves without tutelary mediators. ---- The second half of the twentieth century brought to the Caribbean the frenzy for decolonization and [the creation of] "sovereign states" that in sum have become another step toward the lack of communication, apparently mitigated in later years by the unions and alliances among the Caribbean states. But in any case, it is the union of the ...

A criminal investigation for manslaughter has been opened following the death. ---- Eighteen years after the violent expulsion of undocumented migrants in the Church of St. Bernard, the Valls government is in the same spiral of state racism that previous governments: stigmatization of migrants and Roma, hunting undocumented migrants, records of evictions ...

On 25 and 26 August, a demonstration was scheduled to press the ruling on the appeal against the conviction of the only prisoner by the demonstrations still imprisoned in Brazil: Rafael Braga. Rafael was arrested during demonstrations in June 2013, "carrying" a bottle of pine sun and other alcohol, cleaners that were transformed by the police, even after the expertise to see that they were plastic and little potential flammable bottles, a "possible Molotov ". The vigil was held in front of the Court of Justice, bringing together activists, independent artists and several popular movements.

Anti-fascism - Anti-patriarchy - Anti-racism ---- There is one year, Clement Meric fell at the hands of the fascists in Paris. Three months later, in Greece, Pavlos Fyssas, rapper and anti-fascist activist, was assassinated by the Golden Dawn neo-Nazis. A year later, many rallies and demonstrations commemorated the death of Clement, that of Pavlos but also that of many anonymous victims of racist, homophobic, sexist or anti-Semitic crimes committed by fascists. Yet despite these numerous and sometimes massive demonstrations (nearly 8,000 demonstrators · e · s in Paris), what conclusions can be drawn from these "one year"? ---- Dissolved groups still present ---- We remember that Manuel Valls, then Minister of the Interior, took five minutes, between two racist circular to ban the French Mission and the Nationalist Youth.

All this fits perfect to capitalist logic of âdivide and ruleâ, since itâs used as tool for prevention of all social revolts and ...
(en) Anarkismo.net: Neither Ukrainian nor Russian! – Let’s develop our own camp, the third camp, that of social revolution! (it)
Sun Aug 31 08:20:58 GMT 2014
When we wrote some months ago in our text, “War preparations between Ukraine and Russia – Show or Reality?” that the conditions for a new war ripen in Ukraine, many comrades expressed doubts or even disagreements with such a categorical statement. Now we can say that the conflict in Ukraine has clearly switched from the “cold” phase to the “hot” one and that what we are currently witnessing in the east of the country is the war by all definitions. From Lugansk on the border with Russia to Mariupol on the Black Sea coast two military forces compete in daily clashes when trying to enlarge the area under their control, they fight on the ground as well as in the air, in countryside as well as in industrial centers, artilleries shell villages, air forces bomb cities (under the pretext that their enemy uses the inhabitants as living shields), men, women, children die under ...
