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."

Fri Apr 24 18:00:31 GMT 2015
We have already largely exposed the context of crises we are currently experiencing. Course economic crisis with a continuous increase of misery and insecurity but also ecological crisis with the scarcity of available resources, social crisis with widespread social cannibalism and political crisis finally with, among others, a breakthrough confusionism. ---- It seems important to focus on the political confusionism gaining ground every day. What political confusionism? The political confusionism is that conservative and reactionary currents, belonging to the sphere of the extreme right, ownership and use of thematic usually carried by currents located opposite of the political spectrum. They therefore invest the land struggles of their opponent · e · s policies (anti-capitalism, ecology, criticism of religions ...), using a rhetoric that is ...

Fri Apr 24 17:58:49 GMT 2015
The decision of the Republic of Cyprus to proceed to exploit the EEZ caused the resurgence of the given conflict between the Greek and the Turkish state. Frigates, submarines, consortium, rigs, underwater research, partnerships create a tension setting with its details and undeclared intentions of those who promote it are subject to interpretations, assumptions or conspiracies. It is futile to look for someone who is right and who is wrong in a transnational dispute. This is because it will never in our own right or wrong, especially now that the nationalist fire lit in a period of great sharpening of social contradictions in both countries. While plebeians on both sides of the Aegean are faced not only attack the material substance of their existence but also the cultural and ideological authoritarianism barbaric powers, a revival of the eternal enemy could only ...
(en) anarkismo.net: The Bizarre US-Iranian Negotiations by Wayne Price
Fri Apr 24 17:57:09 GMT 2015
The US and other imperial powers hypocritically demand that Iran limits its nuclear energy and military programs, in unilateral "negotiations." But while internationalists reject US hypocrisy and bullying, we should not accept nuclear bombs or energy by any nation. ---- The negotiations between the US government and the Iranian government is essentially bizarre. The US state (and the states of France, Britain, China, Germany, and Russia) are negotiating with the Iranian state over whether the Iranians can develop a nuclear power industry which might, perhaps, be used for building nuclear bombs. The Iranians deny they are interested in building such bombs. The US state, armed to the eyebrows with nuclear weaponry, plus the largest military forces on the face of the earth (larger than all others combined), and allied, in the region, with nuclear-armed Israel, is making ...
(en) anarkismo.net: 1st Congress of the Anarchist Federation of Rosario (ca)
Fri Apr 24 17:57:00 GMT 2015
7 years of the Columna Libertaria Joaquín Penina ---- During the months of March and April we held our first congress as a political organisation. We opened a new phase in our organisation and that is why we have decided to reflect this by changing its name for one that takes fuller account of our organisational forms and our horizons of construction. As such, the Anarchist Federation of Rosario is the continuation of the Columna Libertaria Joaquín Penina. ---- We have been organised as anarchists for seven years, in which we have tried to make our libertarian contribution to the resistance and struggles of our oppressed class. This journey which, although with comings and goings, fruit of successes and failures, demonstrates a marked tendency to consolidate ourselves as a political organisation, a reference of organised anarchism in the city of Rosario, and it is as such ...

Prime Minister Davutoglu, prosecutors with the description in the commemoration ceremony at the waterfall for Cherries put us clarify that we feel every day more intense and more open feel we print policies. Certain parts of the media to be in the ceremony, he feels it would be hard dose of explanation. One day before the mood of a similar bewilderment against the Istanbul Chief of Police cameras-I did not have my critique. ---- In their own words, "crisis management" had the courage of being at the head position. It was clear that this issue is associated with the election agenda. It was also. And of course "Travel provocation of" class. The last part of the previous week's fighting talk where the Internal Security Act legitimize the fight was clear threat. Davutoglu, then threw a threat sparked controversy due to the unconstitutional: "The street will be tolerated ...
(en) Britain, Anarchist Action - Making merry on Mayday by pebrots
Thu Apr 23 11:27:32 GMT 2015
Mayday has traditionally been a time of both celebration and rebellion - and 2015 will be no exception. Here are a few events taking place this year that we have heard about - let us know of others to add to the list over the next couple of weeks. ---- Milan: International anti-capitalist protest ---- http://winteroak.org.uk/2015/04/10/the-acorn-7/#3 ---- Six weeks after the massive protests against the opening of the European Central Bank HQ in Frankfurt, European anti-capitalists will be gathering again, this time in Italy, to take on another major showcase of European neoliberalism. The mobilisation on Friday May 1 is being billed as "a joyful angry international demonstration through the centre of Milan" and starts at 2pm at Piazza XXIV Maggio on the south side of the city centre. It is focused on the opening day ...

On November 24, 1898 opened its doors, the International Anti-Anarchist Conference in Rome. In almost a month, lasting, head of police, officials, ambassadors and other leaders, the European states had the opportunity to extensively discuss and establish the anti-anarchist politics of their governments. 54 representatives from 21 countries of Europe, -amongst and as Greece decided to adopt the biometric system of Alphonse Bertillon, based forensic policy against anarchists. An early INTERPOL was set up and the first stage for the current use of DNA from repressive mechanisms had met. ---- 120 years, or so later, a hard struggle against the logical continuation of these measures is given in Greece by the hunger strike of the prisoners, who are fighting for the abolition of the means torture and oppress the fighters and terrorize society resistance.

The bill on intelligence unveiled in March by the government just to enroll in the continuity of security laws which will arm the State to strengthen his power, what s that are political trends governing es. ---- This law, in gestation for almost a year, follows the one "against terrorism" promulgated in November 2014, we had already denounced the draconian and highly repressive. The government now uses the pseudo unity post-Paris attacks to strengthen its "anti-terrorist" speech, to assert the legitim ity of this e repressive law in the name of "security", and decides r to the vot er accelerated procedure. ---- While each of the new economic measures (ANI responsibility Pact, pension law, Macron law, etc.) emphasizes the social destruction, damages our conditions of work and life, and we impoverish a little more in favor of the dominant classes that the ...
