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."

On July 19, 1979 (43 years after the beginning of the Spanish Revolution against Franco's coup d'état) a revolution of clear popular content triumphed in Nicaragua. The 46-year dictatorship of the Somoza family, owners of Nicaragua and representatives of the United States, was thus ended. Since 1855, with the invasion of the "filibuster" Walker, Nicaragua has been an American enclave, a kind of semi-colony, a country "free" and "independent" only formally, where the control of the United States was total in all activities Nicaraguan ---- Sandino's feat with his "Rebel Army", whose main objective was to expel the US Marines put in check such presence between 1926 and 1933. The murder of Sandino at the hands of Anastasio Somoza, in a real ambush, betrayed, defeats the Rebel Army and triumph the most disgusting and vile reaction at the service of US imperialism. ...

In a context where feminism takes center stage in the social movement, we went to meet a non-mixed feminist collective, Emancipation, which for the past ten years has been fighting in Angers against all forms of discrimination and oppression. To celebrate these ten years, the collective had organized a festival of high holding. Meet. ---- Can you present your collective ? ---- The collective was created in 2008, at the initiative of members of the Sud Étudiant.es union of the college of letters and members of the Etincelle, self-directed militant place. A feminist collective had already existed at L'Étincelle, since 1997, called Émancipation. The name suited us well, so we took it back. The collective is part of materialist feminism, considering that one of the bases of the exploitation of women is economic, in particular by the appropriation of the labor force ...

Massimo Serini, also known as Alfredo, is a Roman anarchist, and granted an interview by e-mail to ANA. He lived from 1996 to 2016 in the Dominican Republic, where he was part of the Cibao Libertario Social Center in Santiago de los Caballeros and other libertarian initiatives.

This 4th of August marks four years since the suicide of Sergio David Urrego Reyes (1997-2014), a 16-year-old young anarchist student who decided to take his own life due to the systematic harassment he suffered because of his sexual orientation and his political activity, by the directives of his school, the private Gimnasio Castillo Campestre institute in the city of Bogotá. ---- Since his death in 2014, Sergio's case has shocked the country and has received unusual national media attention. And although several of the people directly responsible for their systematic and violent harassment have received valuable condemnations from bourgeois justice, the same policies of hatred and exclusion that were applied against Sergio, have been maintained and even deepened over the years in the school and work world. ...

On Friday, August 3 , we decided to attack the Ministry of Infrastructure (Avenida Alexandras, nº 19). There are inexhaustible reasons for anyone to intervene in this ministry. We decided to do this because of their biggest crime, to get involved in the murder of dozens (and unfortunately, the deaths caused by the fires increase every day) of our comrades in Rafina, Mati and Kinetta, Greece, in the end of the month. Everyone agrees that if there was the infrastructure needed to evacuate the areas and to deal with fires, the disaster would be less. ---- We can not know what the fate of people would be like, but it would certainly be better. The State, like any other, refuses to face reality. It prefers to make excuses only policies to avoid its responsibilities. The murderous state of Greece has a huge share of responsibility in one of the country's largest mass murders. ...

Today is a day of defeat for Argentine women and all the women of the world. The local Senate voted against the law authorizing abortion. The weight of reactionaries of all kinds and of the Catholic Church has crushed the right to justice and freedom. By what right do men have an opinion on which concerns the belly of women ? By what right do religions imprison women in the violence of clandestine abortions ? ---- The slogan of the opponents was "Save both lives". We all know that women's lives do not matter to them and that this slogan is only hypocrisy. Clandestine abortions kill. ---- Libertarian Alternative shares the pain and affirms its full solidarity with Argentine women and all the women of the world deprived of the right to abort safely by the disgusting of men in power and religions. ---- The fight goes on, everywhere, all the time. ...

Iryna Leushyna, chief editor of the non-governmental BelaPAN news agency, has been detained today, tut.by said. Her apartment has been searched and computer equipment seized. ---- Earlier, police detained several editors and journalists of independent media outlets tut.by and belapan.by. All of them are accused of illegal access to the paid services of the government-owned news agency BelTA (the accusation seems totally ridiculous provided the low quality of the content of BelTA and poor popularity of state media in Belarus). Tens of searches in offices of media and private houses of journalists occur. Many of detained were refused to see their advocates. Most of journalists were eventually released, including tut.by editors Hanna Kaltyhina and Halina Ulasik this afternoon. Maryna Zolatava, Hanna Yermachonak and Tatsiana Korovenkova were set free today ...
