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."

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Jun 26 14:44:50 GMT 2016

Posted on June 22, 2016 - Portland Tags: labor, portland solidarity network, wage theft For 10:30 am on a Friday, the crowd just swelled beyond expectations on the corner of 26th and Foster in East Portland. From union organizers to community groups, local activists to retirees, more than fifty supporters came together to stand with the Portland Solidarity Network (PDXSol) and Andrew Bobrek against the abuses he has alleged at his former workplace. ---- Andrew was a former employee of Foster Auto Parts who was fired on November 12th after attempting to form a union with his co-workers. Bobrek was approached by his manager and informed that he was overheard giving his “two-week’s notice,” which he had not, then was fired and escorted off the premises. After he was aggressively forced out, Bobrek says that his co-workers were then told that they were not allowed to discuss ...


(en) US, black rose fed: PORTLAND TENANTS UNITED LEAD CITY INTO “EVICTION FREE 2016”
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Jun 26 14:44:29 GMT 2016

“There’s no such thing as “no cause” when it comes to a no-cause eviction,” said Rosalie Nowak, a Portland renter telling a crowd of hundreds about being evicted only a month after moving in. “There’s always a cause. A reason. It’s that you, as a renter, have no right to know what the hell is going on. In that case, we as tenants have less rights than someone who is taken to jail. At least they are entitled to know what they are being held for.” ---- During the weekend before Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday holiday, cities around the country used it as an opportunity to build on Dr. King’s legacy for racial and economic justice. For renters in Portland, Oregon, this meant driving at part of social life that has become scarcely sustainable in recent years: housing. In Portland, like in many other “hip” urban areas like San Francisco’s Mission District or Brooklyn in New ...

After more than two months, the movement is not out of steam and the protests continue to gather despite the strategy of police power. The blocking actions weigh on the economy. But the game is far from won, while Valls as Holland show their firmness. To prevail, we must continue to repeat around us, in all sectors, it is the strike that we will make the government. ---- Since the unexpected thunder of 9 March, fifteen mobilization dates are followed and although the strike calls were more or less candid and more or less supported by sectors, the protest movement of labor law settled in the period, supported by mostly hostile opinion polls in the government project: if between 70% and 75% of the population is hostile to the labor law, as saying that this proportion should reach almost 95% among the wage earners! ...

Between fascists, cops, and everyday sexism, appropriation of public space by women and gender minorities is more than ever to assert. This is why a few months, a feminist event is organized in Lyon to remind act in the street and the night belong to women. ---- Women Fighting 69: this is the name of the permanent space where live side by side people from neighborhoods as militant or LGBT community, we created this year in Lyon. For this first initiative, we wanted to involve a maximum of cis women (those living in the sex and gender assigned at birth) and trans to the organization. So we convened an unmixed AG to submit our project. Seventy people came. The desire was to go, the momentum was on! ---- A question has been debated: the mix. The idea was to make visible the cis and trans women and therefore not to open the way for trans men. But after discussion, it was decided to ...


(en) US, black rose fed: STANDING UP FOR EMERGENCY RENT STABILIZATION IN PORTLAND
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sat Jun 25 12:53:55 GMT 2016

On Thursday, April 7, 2016, Portland Tenants United (PTU), the Portland, Oregon, based tenants’ union, descended on the Multnomah County building with hundreds of supporters. Since the City of Portland declared a renter state of emergency six months ago, organizers argue that the rental crisis in the hip urban areas of Portland has only gotten worse, with the city standing out with the fastest rent increases in the nation. After recent attempts at comprehensive renter protections were blocked at the state level from the influence of the landlord lobby and the limitations on the meager citywide rental protections established last fall by the mayor’s office, PTU and other housing and wage activists are demanding a metro-wide rent freeze and a moratorium on all no-cause evictions until a permanent solution can be put in place. They demand that these solutions ...
