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."

Tue Nov 12 06:55:36 GMT 2019
The Lubrizol factory fire in Rouen shows poor management by the State, both upstream and after the disaster. But industrial accidents of this magnitude are not inevitable. ---- Following the Lubrizol fire, which manufactures fuel additives, a factory manager told the media that the company wants to be " a good neighbor ". Well, it's missed. It is not good to live around Lubrizol and even at least 200 km around. On the night of September 26, around 2 am, a fire ravage this factory classified " Seveso high threshold ". An oil spill overwhelms the Rouen area and will be felt in Belgium. Whatever the origin of this fire, several observations and questions are required.

In a metropolis that has 25 Seveso classified ...

(en) Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement: The Rojava revolution is under attack. by Debbie Bookchin and Emre Sahin
Tue Nov 12 06:49:29 GMT 2019
Debbie Bookchin and Emre Sahin share their thoughts on this unique revolutionary process after recently visiting the region. ---- hat has been taking place in Rojava is easily one of the most inspiring and exciting experiments in autonomous self-government to ever exist. It is also one of the most massive, and gender inclusive, often compared to the Spanish Revolution of 1936, as well as the Zapatistas in Chiapas, Mexico. And yet, people outside the region know little about the different dimensions of the revolution taking place in Rojava. And now, this revolutionary territory is under military and political attack - its very existence at risk. ---- What follows is the first of a three part interview series with people who have had ongoing relationship to Rojava, and who have spent time in the revolutionary territory. The first two parts of the series are with ...

Tue Nov 12 06:44:24 GMT 2019
On the afternoon of last Wednesday, October 30, the workers of different sectors in struggle of the City of Buenos Aires took the first step to form a worker coordinator. This decision is framed by the strong adjustment that weighs on our living conditions, in a context of industrial collapse and deepening of social misery, with dismissals and suspensions. ---- As a first step we set out to face the bosses' offensive and provide concrete support to the fight of the different sectors that are in struggle. That is why we decided to establish an agenda in which we voted for express support to: ---- -To accompany the vigil of the drivers of Line 60 against the attempt of the DOTA group to close the Barracas header. (Thursday 31/10 from 20 hours). ---- -Participate in the plenary of the workers of Kimberly Clark (Friday 1/11 from 17 hours). ...
(en) London Anarchist Federation: Open Meeting - Against The Coming Queerphobic Backlash
Tue Nov 12 06:44:01 GMT 2019
We are holding another open meeting on possible responses to the likely backlash against more LGBT+ inclusive education in schools being rolled out next September (see background below). The meeting will be at London Action Resource Centre (62 Fieldgate St, Shadwell, London E1 1ES) at 5pm on Saturday the 23rd of November. ---- Due to the possible scale of the problem, we want to get as many people as possible involved and ultimately build a broad coalition of groups and individuals that goes far beyond the Anarchist Federation working group that is hosting this meeting. ---- So far we are throwing around ideas about holding an open assembly, putting together educational material to counter far right misinformation, and creating a leaflet of testimonials about how a lack of LGBT+ inclusion in education has harmed people in the past, but none of this is set in stone. ...

(en) Czech, AFED: Occupied excavator -- Report on direct action against the fossil industry [machine translation]
Mon Nov 11 07:07:46 GMT 2019
On Tuesday 29 October, an autonomous group of eight climate activists occupied a mining excavator at the Vršany mine . Immediately after casting published the manifesto (the full text HERE), which is not merely the submission of specific environmental concessions requirements addressed to governments, authorities, or corporations. The manifesto is a much deeper expression of the breakup with the technocratic capitalist regime, which sees only the profits of the owners of capital in the first place and then nothing for a long time. The group, called Against Coal, bothers "how a handful of individuals blatantly exploits our planet, threatens the future of humanity and its overall existence, for profit alone. We have been observing politicians for too long about the state of climate emergency and the need to tackle climate change, but their real steps are in the opposite ...

(en) Santiago Anarchist Federation - November 5 - THIRD COMMUNIQUE (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]
Mon Nov 11 06:59:11 GMT 2019
Before the social explosion in the Chilean region, the Santiago Anarchist Federation declares: ---- 1- The current situation is uncertain, the people are still fighting, their courage has not been stopped by bullets or crumbs launched by the bourgeoisie. The oppressed class continues to resist bravely in the streets of the entire region dominated by the Chilean State, therefore we call to continue mobilizations in all our spaces: on the street, in the town, in the high schools, in the paste, etc. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we know that a process of attrition typical of so many days of struggle will be manifested, which is why it is extremely important to start building and strengthening the Territorial Assemblies, which must overcome the institutional vision of the "Citizen Council" and not turn in around a new constitution, but to generate a "list of peoples", ...
