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."
(en) The Anarchist Forum Cologne: Interview with Anarchist inside of Syria (de)
Fri Apr 18 14:10:17 GMT 2014
The Anarchist Forum Cologne sent a few questions to comrades / inside Syria and get the following answers: ---- How are your relations with the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the regime and the Kurdish autonomous government? ---- Answer: We support the Syrian revolution for freedom and dignity against the dictatorship of Bashar Al Assad and the Baath Party. We support secular and democratic elements of the FSA and the right of all people to resist tyranny through armed struggle. But at the time win Islamist groups within the FSA to growth and dominance, which we can not support and we are cautious about their programs (these are still regarded as separate from counterrevolutionary, extremist jihadist groups such as ISIS and Jabhat Al Nusra against which spend most Syrians / inside). We support the Kurdish rights to self-determination and our Kurdish companions / inside in combat. We ...

(en) Britain, AfEd Organise! #81 - In Defence of Malatesta
Thu Apr 17 09:46:42 GMT 2014
A defence of Malatesta's record on the unions and his attitude towards workers' organisations ---- “Let there be as much class struggle as one wishes, if by class struggle one means the struggle of the exploited against the exploiters for the abolition of exploitation. That struggle is a way of moral and material elevation, and it is the main revolutionary force that can be relied on.” Malatesta ---- Recently there have been various references to the ideas of the Italian anarchist Errico Malatesta either in books and pamphlets or in blogs. For example the blog of Scott Nappalos has the following: ‘Anarchism and the unions: a critique of Malatesta's ahistorical perspective’. ---- I quote in length from the article: ---- “There are three main errors in Malatesta's argument that will lead us to different conclusions. Malatesta botches the role of history ...
(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #237 - Chronicles of alienated labor: "A well-organized bizness flight..." Eugene, electronics mechanic (fr, pt) [machine translation]
Thu Apr 17 09:45:13 GMT 2014
Chronicles of alienated labor by Aline Torterat, occupational physician -- Eugene, electronics engineer  ---- I started my career in agricultural mechanics. I have always loved the mechanics. Then I specialized in mechatronics. For some years I install locks on the machines of public works (cranes, loaders, rollers, etc...). This is a real specialty. These locks consist of a housing with a startup PIN and a GPS tracking system when the vehicle is stolen. Most often, I put it at the request of the owners of machines and sometimes at the request of the manufacturer if the purchaser claims that security. Manufacturers never secure their machines without an order from the buyer. Flights on sites such large power tools are very frequent. It's easy, it often goes unnoticed, even in daylight. Indeed, on a large construction site, it is teeming with people. Many people ...

Wed Apr 16 11:52:46 GMT 2014
We now approach a major victory for the struggle against the dealer manager and planning of the territory. And that, among other things, because those who resist have managed to remain uni.es despite desperate to demonize the anger that is expressed on February 22 attempts. However, arrests, prosecutions and convictions raining down on opponents . ---- The airport project Notre Dame des Landes sees every day more fragile. The demonstration of 22 February saw an unprecedented mobilization and once again demonstrated the strength of the movement with 50,000 people, 500 tractors and 67 cars from all over France. In the aftermath, the declarations and agreements renewed the fact not start work before exhaustion currently filed against the airport (1), could act his swan song.
(en) Britain, AfEd Organise! #81 - “I come to you like the beggar man…” - A review of Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossessed
Wed Apr 16 11:42:19 GMT 2014
When I first sat down to write this review all I could think of saying was along the lines of “The Dispossessed is about two worlds divided by a wall, and what it means to be a beggar on either side of this divide. Go read it!” Unfortunately that isn’t much of a review, but with that in mind… ---- The Dispossessed is a work of speculative science fiction exploring two different societies living in orbit to one another: ---- Urras. The Blue-Green world of plenty. A word of class. A word of division. The place where the rich are rich and the poor are poor. Where a workers takes the brunt from the bosses wars and wants, no matter if the boss claims to be a capitalist or a communist. Our world presented to us in another name. ---- Anarres. A moon colony of idealistic anarchists in exile. Now several generations old, it sits in isolation from the rest of humanity and the worlds ...

(en) Anarchist and international solidarity against Russian State repression by Anarkismo.net Editorial Collective
Wed Apr 16 10:27:29 GMT 2014
Days after the Sochi Olympic Games, in the course of which the dictatorial Russian government allowed multinationals firms and other States to satisfy their capitalist pretensions by muzzling opposition and banning demonstrations, the repression of anticapitalists, anarchists, trade-union activists, and the feminist and anti-homophobe movements is still going on. ---- On the 24th February, 7 opponents to the regime have been sentenced for taking part in a demonstration against Putin in 2012, a protest which denounced the fixing of the presidential election by the State. They have been sentenced to up to 4 years detention in a camp for "mass disorder" and "violence against the forces of law and order". This political trial has been greatly criticized by the opposition who have gathered together in great number in front of the court to protest against ...
