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."

Available Homes? Privatization of public space? Options for non-commercial use? Cities for profit or for people?

And that homeless people who ask you for a five-crown at the station have recently made a significant difference? ---- There really has to be something wrong with this world, when those who think it's in the imaginable wallets can only own dozens of dwellings, and we who do not have it, we can go to so slip. Housing speculators get millions by buying and selling houses. The owners of the hostels are quiet and unobtrusive robbing the poorest of the little they still have and letting the state housing allowances into their own pockets.

(en) Southern Africa, zabalaza.net: The political nature of the Fourth Industrial Revolution by Shawn Hattingh (ZACF)
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Dec 11 10:42:30 GMT 2017

Mechanisation and automation have been called the Fourth Industrial Revolution. But these are not inevitable or neutral economic realities. They are political weapons of oppression under capitalism. It is a war against the working classes to increase profits. It is no an accident that bosses choose to mechanise and automate in the context of the massive crisis of capitalism. ---- Recently, the accounting multinational company, Grant Thompson, conducted a study amongst 2500 multinational corporations regarding mechanisation, automation and the introduction of artificial intelligence. Of these companies, 56% said they planned to automate parts of their operations within the next year. Another study by Oxford University was even starker. It stated that 47% of jobs in the United States and possibly 50% of jobs in parts of Africa - including South Africa - could possibly be lost ...

December 6, 2008. Cops killed a child in Exarchia. We go down. ---- There are fires in the straits. Outside the Polytechnic, silence breaks the sound from irons that hit the cement rhythmically. A platoon came close. On them, WE GO TO THEM ---- Our utopia does not stop at the outbreak of spontaneous insurrection. It is not justified by anything less than the social revolution, the universal overthrow of the state and capitalism, and the building of a new, classless society of equality, solidarity and freedom ---- The December uprising is engraved in the memories of the many thousands who lived it, and is a symbol of resistance for the younger men mentioned in it. It began as an angry answer to the assassination of 15 year old student Alexandros Grigoropoulos at the junction of Tzavella and Mesolongiou streets by the special guards E. Corkonas and V. Saraliotis. A murder that ...

The IWA is pleased to announce the success of its first Congress ever in the Balkan Region. The Congress marks a new era for the IWA, which has shown its commitment to development and spreading anarchosyndicalism in more new regions around the world. ---- On November 3-5, 2017 an Extraordinary Congress of the IWA took place in Belgrade, Serbia. The Congress was held, extraordinarily, less than one year after the XXVI Congress, that took place in Warsaw. Despite this technical challenge, the Congress again went smoothly and was accompanied by discussion on practical matters and public presentations of the work of the Sections. ---- The choice to hold an important Congress in Belgrade can be seen as an act of defiance against the authoritarian state, that tried to criminalize comrades in this country on more than one occasion. ...

It's now been twelve years since Hurricane Katrina smashed through the levees of New Orleans, completely inundating the Lower Ninth Ward and validating scientists' dire warnings of climate change's destructive effects on weather patterns. In the long years of government inaction that have followed, early warning signs have given way to a sinking realization that climate change is no longer a nightmare future scenario humanity needs to avoid - it's a present-day reality that we need to adapt to. From record-setting wildfires and famine-inducing droughts, to mass flooding and a punishing string of unprecedented mega-storms, 2017 has been a watershed year for climate catastrophe. ---- While liberal environmentalists wring their hands over the Trump cabal's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord, Indigenous land-defenders, anarchists and other radicals are taking ...

Food Instead of Bombs (Food Not Bombs) is a worldwide initiative undertaken by more than a thousand groups in the world, including a dozen or so in Poland consisting in preparing and issuing warm, free, vegan meals to those who need it. The action is an expression of opposition to wars and armaments, to which the authorities spend the funds removed from society, while thousands of people are starving and forced to live on the street. ----Food Not Bombs is derived from anti-nuclear and anti-war protests. We are abused by the enormity of resources devoted to armaments to satisfy the greed of corporations and the imperial aspirations of governments. Resources that could be used to meet basic nutritional, housing and health care needs, that is, what truly constitutes our security, as opposed to the number of tanks, bombers and other killing tools. The Polish government ...

One does not have to search far to find examples of how the police and the state apparatus is used during moments of resistance to exploitation and oppression. Around the world we see how time after time, workers protests are quelled by police, how movements of the oppressed are put down by force. The role of the state in maintaining the power of the elites has long been clear. ---- Over the last few years, we have had to face the real repression of the state many times, often exaggerated in its reaction. The state has tried to make comrades into terrorists, for example in the case of comrades from ASI several years ago or in the ridiculous case of the arrest of a comrade from the CNT-AIT at the beginning of 2016 for taking part in a politically satirical puppet show. In Poland, the state-run Post Office also tried, unsuccessfully, to charge a comrade from ZSP with ...

During the 9th anniversary of the murder of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos (Alexis) by the police, many actions took place in Greece's capital Athens and Thessaloniki. The first action took place in the Propylea district of Athens at noon. There was a clash between the group of high school students and the police. Students resisted the police attack by establishing barricades. ---- In Athens, the anarchists performed in the evening hours more than anyone else. There was a clash between police and activists in the action in the Exarchia region. The activists responded to the police attack with molotov cocktails, fireworks and stones. Conflicts continued throughout the night. In the evening, hundreds of people participated in the demonstration in Thessaloniki and the police attacked and clashes appeared. ---- It was announced that a total of 25 people were taken ...

The most widespread weed killer has just seen its marketing authorization renewed for five years by the European Union. Although its carcinogenic potential is strongly suspected, it allows the maintenance of low costs in industrial agriculture. This explains the lack of political will to get out. An agricultural revolution remains to be done. ---- Weeding is one of the basic issues facing agricultural producers. It takes time and produces nothing. In this field, glyphosate, like other chemical substances, has been a post-war industrial solution to save labor time, thus reducing costs. This cold optimization of value production has destroyed ecosystems, polluted soils and poisoned humans. All this has already been told [1]and despite the postponement of successive ban in Europe announced long ago, this substance has just been allowed for five more years after a fantastic vote ...
