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.
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) Britain, Consumed with emotion and reason - About the pitfalls motivations and possibilities of ethical consumption.
Wed Jan 18 13:06:32 GMT 2017
The ethical consumption can actually talk whenever, in relation to products and services that you take, actively take into account their impact on people, society, the environment and animals and their way of themselves. Ethical, or even responsible consumption in recent years quite often inflected term. In stores face a number of certificates and marking, which under this pigeon-hole can be included. There are eco-educational programs in this direction. ---- Nástraha neoliberalismu ---- But generally it has the promotion of responsible consumption of its pitfalls. Although on the one hand can bring their strengths, and when the anti-capitalist concept (see HERE ) even form one of the prerequisites for social change, on the other hand, can easily serve the neoliberal indoctrination. It is about forcing the idea that for poor social conditions, ...

No more pointless to overstate the obvious. All political management options in the context that we know have collapsed, because the whole system is bankrupt. Nothing to promise, no better day is not in sight for the poor. The parties simply alternate promoting even worse measures, while the sacrifices that workers do ever course is not enough. ---- Features and launched a general strike on December 8, the government now is the best ally of the EU Hawk and international organizations plunder and oppression of the people, engaged in new projects, which will complicate even more the workers' living conditions and the unemployed. In complete harmony and coordination with national policies in Greece Schauble, raises again the scarecrow of "leaving the euro" to achieve even more effective "reforms" aimed at the extermination of the poor and oppressed. ...
(en) wsm.ie: Apollo House - well worth fighting for
Wed Jan 18 13:05:54 GMT 2017
Yesterday hundreds of people turned out to support the imaginative action which is known to all as Apollo house. Apollo House is the single point of light that emerged from an otherwise dismal year, a centennial year of significance, which gave us so little to be proud of. Homelessness, in spite of being a significant symptom of all that is wrong in our society, is both ignored and tolerated. Fortunately the sight of the homeless masses did not get in the way of the centenary celebrations of what a great little republic we have grown up to be. ---- The actions of the Irish Housing Network and the alliance of supporters which has become known as Home Sweet Home, has taken over an ugly brutalist building and former dole office on Tara Street, and gave homeless people hope of a fresh start. What it has also done is shone a light on the inhumane bureaucratic approach of ...

Jewellery is a universal form of adornment dating back tens of thousands of years.

Prepare to learn a whole new side to jewellery; a vast global business based around mythology, sentiment, status, ownership, exploitation and extremely successful marketing.

“Yesterday, at a time when the tears have not dried and the rage is not settled yet for the cities burned down to rubble with tanks and bombing, hundreds of people killed, thousands of old, young, child, women and men wounded and unhoused; the images of the perpetrators taking medals are alive in our memories; when the tanks and planes which burned down the cities and killed the people targeted Ankara and Istanbul on July 15, yesterdays heros were declared traitors overnight. Thousands of people were stuffed into prisons, tens of thousands lost their jobs. The practice of reciprocal coups which is a manifestation of power struggle at the top of the state, revealed the dirty face of state. The relationships between the gangs, cult, sect that organized inside the state with their soldiers, police, allegedly independent judges from supreme court to chancery, prosecutors ...
(en) wsm.ie: Revolution in Rojava - audio of Dublin launch and discussion by author
Tue Jan 17 05:16:05 GMT 2017
Revolution in Rojava" is an eye-witness account on the experience of creating a bottom up social order which actively challenges all forms of oppression and exploitation. The struggle in Rojava (a mostly Kurdish region north of Syria), despite the extent of counterrevolutionary and imperialist forces aligned against it, continues to nurture an autonomous, grassroots resistance across its multiply ethno-religious communities. ---- Ercan Ayboga, co-author of "Revolution in Rojava" launched the book on a speaking tour of Ireland in December, the audio is the Dublin meeting where Ercan spends over an hour discussing the revolution with the audience. The meeting happened shortly after the fall of East Aleppo so this important event is also touched on. ---- The book describes in detail the experiences of the participants, the social and ideological evolution of the ...

(en) Britain, AF London: A message of hope for the New Year
Tue Jan 17 05:15:29 GMT 2017
Wonderful stuff from Neil Ascherson in latest London Review of Books. This should be spread on a wide level as a message of hope in these sad and dark times: ---- "....the Spanish War can be remembered for its epiphanies. What happened in and around Barcelona in the first years of the war did not last, did not happen in most of Spain, ended in tragedy and a viciously disputed memory and made little difference to the war's outcome. Adam Hochschild, in Spain in Our Hearts, suggests that the foreign journalists covering the war were so obsessed with the military struggle and the Republican leadership in Madrid that they hardly noticed the revolution going on outside their hotels. And yet Barcelona in those years, rather than what was done on the battlefields, was a brief revelation of something latent but dazzling in humanity: the hope to fly like angels. ...
