lots of
work to do


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.


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 Wednesday, September 25, 2013, a day of strike in the public sector, and just a week after the assassination of Paul Fyssa by the gold-rusty Rupakia (in an ambush set up by the fascist battalions of the Athens invasion), we were on the streets by participating in the anarchist assembly blockade against wielded slavery "the toolkit" that was then in operation and developed significant action against the imposition of barbaric antisocial measures, social strife and cannibalism. ---- After the end of the demonstration, four members of the assembly, among them a companion from our team, gathered our flags in order to leave Georgiou Square, where the course ended. A few meters downstream (in the most central part of the city, Corinthos and Agios Nikolaos Street), they are surrounded by cops from the DIAS team who are immobilized, searched for their pockets and bags and bring ...

The observation that one can make is that the school often generates ill-being and creates strong inequalities.

In several cities of France and Belgium, we will discuss the special dossier of Alternative libertarian on 1917. ---- The Russian Revolution - an event of planetary significance for which the centenary is celebrated this year - is not confined to a binary confrontation between tsarists and Bolsheviks. ---- Political forces acted at that time to propose a model other than a cruel monarchy on the one hand, and a cynical dictatorship on the other. The anarchist movement fought for a democracy based on the free Soviets, and not subservient to the Communist Party ; a socialism based on self-management, and not on the total nationalization of economic life. ---- On the front line, but minority in 1917, the anarchists and anarcho-syndicalists strove to catch up and create surprise.

Greek anarchists briefly occupied, on Wednesday morning (11/10), the Spanish embassy in Athens denouncing the "repression" by the central government of Madrid. ---- About 20 anarchists from the Rouvikonas group entered the embassy, apparently through a window. They distributed leaflets throughout the building and shouted 'slogans' against the Spanish Government, and put up a banner while the police surrounded the site. ---- The pamphlets said: "Nationalism is one of the most serious social diseases, contagious and fatal (...). What happened in Catalonia was a savage attack to subdue and humiliate a social majority, "" solidarity is a weapon of the people, "" will not pass.

Solidaires appealed to all social movement organizations and parties to come together to work together to take action to develop mobilization. Here is the appeal from this meeting with the first signatures. ---- Our organizations met on October 4th at the Paris Job Exchange. ---- They share the following observation: the government applies the Medef society project, prevents employment, facilitates redundancies and upsets social relations and norms, the ordinances are only the first stone of a vast project of massive destruction announced: pensions, social security, social housing, social assistance and unemployment insurance, but also the degradation and privatization of public services, in a context of questioning public freedoms. ---- In the face of these attacks, we are at a historic turning point which requires organizing a powerful social movement and giving it ...

The government is multiplying advertisements and ineffective measures to " fight " immigration. The latest measures aim to establish humanitarian hotspots and corridors while diminishing the capacity of humanitarian organizations. ---- In his speech of July 27, Macron promised a better care of the refugees, and declared: " By the end of the year, I no longer want anyone in the streets, in the woods. " If his wish to see realized a day, it is certainly not due to measures announced. On the ground, police violence continued: gassing in Calais and elsewhere, daily repression at the border, and so on. ---- Humanitarian Corridors, Ofpra Examination Centers ---- According to Macron, there are good and bad migrants: refugees and " economic " migrants .
