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."

19 years ago a group of companions / the chosen part of the construction of a political project of red color neg ra, in the defense of collective freedoms were essential for the forging of a socialism without privileges and domination of any kind. A project which, although not new, was placed as a huge challenge for this generation of young people, orphans of direct references in our country, sought references in many years of struggle and experience of trade union and popular organization of the brothers of the Eastern band organized in FAU (Uruguayan Anarchist Federation). ---- Not that the experiences of struggle and organization of anarchism in Brazil were not rich by itself.

Stop Moroccan colonization ---- Behind the tourist dream, Morocco is actually a settler state, which maintains its domination in the territory of the Saharawi people in their struggle for independence. Resistance exists despite strong crackdown on its activists. Built from 1980 to 1987 by the Moroccan royal forces, a long wall 2 700 km shear Western Sahara from north to south. Virtually unknown, it is a relentless military facility equipped with radars, guns, millions of mines and weapons of war, guarded by 100,000 Moroccan soldiers to serve the claim Makhzen (Moroccan state) in this territory, and to prevent intrusions of the Polisario Front, the political arm and armed independence Sahrawis. Despite this real military barrier built to isolate and destroy the Saharawi people leading an anti-colonial resistance which reveals the back of a setting designed to ...

There was barely a century in which Japan modernized along Western lines appear at the same time capitalism, anarchism and feminism. Ito Noah is one of those pioneers who dare to challenge the imperial and patriarchal order. His life illustrates the difficult path of this young generation trying to live freely in an authoritarian society. ---- Ito Noah was born in 1895 in the village of Imajuku in Fukuoka Prefecture in southern Japan, where Japan's cultural and ideological boil, just emerging from feudalism. Its ruling class since the opening of the Meiji era (1868-1912) chose to open abroad and modernize the state by copying the Western model: the foundation of a nation-state fast emergence of capitalism with the emergence of a middle class that replaces the old aristocracy, starting the process of capital accumulation that accompanies it. ...

A few times I could agree with both Sardenberg (if it was not first), anchor of CBN, Jornal da Globo columnist, blogger and journalist of the old guard in the inexorable tide of right turn ever by Paul Francis, among others. The economics commentator of the evening newspaper leader Dilma suggests to copy the Chinese model of behavior, because according to himself: ---- "Chinese leaders have a special ability to adopt pro-market rhetoric to please the left side of this party Turn right, take the left sign -.. Such is the teaching" ---- Luiz Carlos Trabuco, Bradesco's executive chairman, as well as Henrique Meirelles, was quoted by the Plateau to topple the government of Finance 2nd Dilma folder. ---- Soon, according to himself, this would be a positive teaching. I agree with the characterization: China is a paradise for foreign investment space, where the retention ...

Sun Nov 23 09:06:36 GMT 2014

Kurdish left has evolved in the last decade. If the PKK (officially renamed Kongra-Gel in 2003) is its center of gravity, with an authoritarian structure, self-management trends have emerged, including its satellite organizations. An ambivalent position but full of potential. ---- Demonstration in the Cizîrê in support of Kobanê (October 2014) ---- For years, the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has suffered a very sad picture: authoritarian, bloody, practicing worship leader ... Just he was recognized its role in the emancipation of women in the guerrillas. However, today it appears as a center of resistance to jihadism, eyes on him to change speed. ---- We have seen in the media, more openly friendly reports, including its units of female fighters. And on the Web circulate a little sensational texts announcing a "new PKK" become almost self-management and even ...

Founded in 2009, BDS France is active in many cities and its national presence continues. Its activities consist of campaigns, working groups, or it intervenes in front of stores that sell Israeli products.

Sat Nov 22 16:33:38 GMT 2014

The vast majority of people who voted Yes did so for a more equal and just society; to stop the war on the poor being waged by Westminster and the rich; an end to food banks, benefits sanctions, wage cuts, public service cuts, wars, and the destruction of our environment. ---- There is no mandate in Scotland for the vicious austerity programme of the Tories and Liberal Democrats. Meanwhile Labour compete to prove they will reduce the deficit by hammering the poor. ---- Despite its claim to seek a better deal for Scottish people, the SNP-controlled Scottish Goverment is implementing austerity. It has already made cuts to further education – Edinburgh College workers struck against worse conditions. It has understaffed the NHS, while cuts to council funding are leading to disabled people paying for their own care. The SNP/Labour council in Edinburgh plans to ...
