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."

Anarchist women in Turkey have called for a letter campaign for a trans woman prisoner held in a men's prison. The woman, Esra Arıkan, is being imprisoned with guards who have repeatedly sexually assaulted her and may be suicidal. ---- Trans prisoner Esra has been imprisoned for 11 years in men's prisons in Turkey. She has written that the judge gave her a life sentence for a crime she did not commit because of bias. Esra has been in solitary confinement for the last nine years. She has been sexually attacked throughout her time in prison. Now, prison wardens have returned Esra to the prison where guards repeatedly sexually assaulted her. ---- In a 2014 letter to anarchist newspaper Meydan, Esra explained that she collected the guard's sperm from her body in the wake of one attack.

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Aug 31 20:20:46 GMT 2015

Those in power don't want to confront the status quo of hatred against immigrants, or South Africa's imperialist role in the region. They have a narrow set of interests: getting votes, accumulating wealth and power. However, the recent wave of attacks on immigrants and the ruptures of relations with other African countries - especially where South African corporations are operating - have touched the most delicate nerves of the established political powers, who have vowed to advance corporate interests in making profits. ---- Regardless of who you vote for, these corporations reign above people, along with big politicians and state officials. Whether you are a South African or a "foreign" member of the working class, you remain a threat to these elites. And if you unite, as the masses, against the elites, they get deeply worried. This is not surprising as today South ...

All those who have donated and attended speaking tours, your support has made a difference. Finally, they may smell the air beyond prison walls, openly see their loved ones, eat their own meals cooked by their own hands and share with friends. They have sacrificed so much already. ---- We wish our comrades the best of health and a joyous life beyond a cage. You rebel, therefore we are. ...


(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL (#252) n° spécial - Read: Kristin Ross, "The Imaginary of the Commune" (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Aug 31 20:20:24 GMT 2015

Kristin Ross is particularly known in France for his work on May 68 and his "future lives", where she analyzed how well the event was transformed into the imaginary French policy to phase out its subversive nature. After addressing the Commune of 1871 through Rimbaud [1], it published last January a new book on the Commune and his imagination, trying to do the opposite of "work" of journalists on May 68. Starting people, famous or fallen into anonymity, communards or contemporary observers, she emerged from the Paris Commune she had more subversive and more fruitful. ---- Almost without addressing the narrative of events, Kristin Ross is interested in the thought of the Commune and especially extensions of this thought in the dark years that followed the bloody week. Between the English poet William Morris, few libertarians geographers such Reclus, Peter ...

(en) US, WSA, ideas and action - Libertarianism is a Type of Socialism, NOT Classical Liberalism By Geoff
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Aug 30 11:34:26 GMT 2015

Libertarianism is a socialist political philosophy which has its roots in the socialist workers' movements of the 1800s and 1900s. It is especially associated with ideas that came out of the First International (IWA - 1864-1876), especially those of Joseph Proudhon, Karl Marx and Mikhail Bakunin. It was upon these ideas, as well as some of those which came later like those of Peter Kropotkin, that the libertarian syndicalists in Spain formed the CNT union in the early 1900s, with the goal of creating a libertarian (socialist) and workers' self-managed society. What this means is they wanted emancipation of the working class, recognizing that class struggle comes as a result of resistance to management power over workers, because business owners' aims are profit-based. This means that managers will submit workers to rigid control in the workplace, cut corners and ...

Kurdistan Anarchists forum supports creation of people’s self-determination in Bakur (‌North of Kurdistan in Turkey) by all means, but in the meantime we oppose and reject war and arm struggle to achieve this. Simply because in that war, state and its warmongers will win and consequently the people’s struggle and their achievement be defeated which will results in a long-term hopelessness and disappointment? ---- The announcement of people’s democratic self-administered as an alternative to oppressive Turkey state is a progressive and revolutionary step which deserves solidarity and support from all libertarians (freedom lovers). But using arm struggle and military action to achieve that aim, is a sever mistake. In order to prevent war and military action which empowers dirty plan of State’s Army warmongers, it is essential to rely on People’s social movement to ...
