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."

Thu Jul 27 11:43:17 GMT 2017

In this article, we respond to the brief exchange between the Workers' Solidarity Alliance (WSA-IWA) and the Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS). ---- Have you ever noticed that when you are in an argument you want to have the last word? It often feels like the last word contains its own authority, as if you are the assaulted party and now you have defended an honorable view. In debate, this is referred to as the "last word" fallacy; a bias towards the most recent argument and likelihood to be swayed by it. Can we combat these biases in arguments of value or, more pertinently, ones of fact? The most recent political climate is emblematic of effective misinformation and narrative based politics. Far Left and far Right political thinkers can believe themselves outside of the influences of "centrist" politics, but maybe they too are gripped by the "truths" of bias. The ...


(en) anarkismo.net: In Ireland Jobstown not Guilty verdict points to a Garda conspiracy by Andrew
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Thu Jul 27 11:42:53 GMT 2017

The outraged media reaction to a jury doing its job and finding the Jobstown defendants not guilty is quite extraordinary. Rather than do the right thing and launch an investigation as to how 180 cops could produce evidence that was directly contradicted by video evidence, the media have gone on a rant against Twitter! Rather than finding it suspicious that nearly 3 million in public funds was spent by the DPP on a case that any proper check of available evidence should have indicated was never likely to convince a jury, the media suggest instead that the problem lay in the exact charges brought. The trial was part of a large scale state operation to suppress a mass anti-austerity community campaign. ---- As we look across our newspapers, TV channels and radio stations and see what appears to be coordinated messaging from politicos, journalists and other ...

It is a relatively well known historical episode: the dissolution of the Russian Constituent Assembly on 5 January 1918 was carried out under the pressure of Kaiser Anatoly Jelezniakov ... with obviously the endorsement of the Bolshevik power. ---- The anarchist Jelezniakov disperses the Constituent Assembly from Alternative Libertarian on Vimeo . ---- Dans la nuit du 5 au 6 janvier 1918, après seulement douze heures de session, le pouvoir bolchevik, approuvé par ses alliés anarchistes et SR de gauche, fait disperser l'Assemblée constituante. Celle-ci vient d'annuler plusieurs décisions du IIe congrès des soviets, tenu en octobre 1917. ---- Assemblées concurrentes, la Constituante et le congrès des soviets sont élues sur des bases très différentes: la Constituante l'est au suffrage universel, dans toutes les classes sociales; le congrès des soviets ne comporte que des ...

Tad and Tro are two students of Armenian origin prosecuted by the French courts for " voluntary violence with premeditation or ambush ". One for throwing pomegranate juice on the Turkish ambassador in France in March 2015, the other for having filmed the scene. Their spectacular action was aimed at denouncing the Turkish state's denial of the Armenian genocide, as well as the massive violations of human rights by Ankara. They need our support. ---- 102 years ago, Turkey was guilty of the genocide of the Armenians. These crimes have so far remained unpunished. Today, two French activists of Armenian descent claiming justice, are prosecuted by the French justice. ---- What have they done to deserve this ? ---- The facts of which they are accused are, for one, of having thrown red-colored water on the ambassador of Turkey in March 2015 and, on the other, of having ...

Source: Rojava Azadî. ---- When we study the reality that surrounds us, it is important to understand how the events that precede us affect our lives and our societies.

We do not agree to the concentration of power in the hands of nationalists and extreme conservatives.
