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."

(en) Britain, freedom-news: Obituary: Simon Chapman, A Very Distinguished Fucking Anarchist
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Feb 20 07:31:01 GMT 2017

Over the last couple of days the strangest thought has plagued me. Two simple ugly words have kept emerging, only for me to lock them out and ridicule them as bizarre. Simon's dead. Just to write it down feels like treachery. Part of me looks forward to seeing him, to sharing a drink and dispelling this nonsense. He'd say something wry, and witty and that would be that. He was good like that. Was. Sometimes the shittiest word to ever have to use about a friend. ---- As part of a (temporary, and self-imposed) exile from all politics, I didn't know his health had deteriorated so much. We weren't the kind of friends who lived out of each other's pockets. There are many who were closer to him than me and I wish them all my love. But for almost 15 years he was always there. At crap protests and good ones, festivals and parties, we'd find each other and we'd usually ...


(en) Germany. fau: Reasons for the end of one history and the beginning of a new one - FAU and IWA - looking back to look ahead
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Feb 20 07:30:22 GMT 2017

In December 2016, the IWA, formerly the International of revolutionary syndicalism and anarcho-syndicalism, expelled its sections in Spain (CNT), Italy (USI) and Germany (FAU), thereby losing at least 90% of its members. The decision at the IWA congress in Warsaw came as no surprise. It concludes at least 20 years of agony for an IWA which has gradually abandoned its roots and the principles of its foundation in December 1922. ---- Translated by Emal Ghamsharick ---- This text represents the view of the International Secretariat of the Free Workers' Union of Germany (FAU) on the development of the IWA and the fault lines of the past decades. We relied several times on two current posts on the blog "Amor y Rabia," because we couldn't have said it better.

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Feb 20 07:30:09 GMT 2017

Inside the lunar landscape of Greek reality, as formulated in the period of capitalist crisis, the right-left governments and the European Union, the social wealth bleeding campaign puts another purpose: housing. After the all-out attack the state and capital to work, agriculture, insurance, social liberties, the environment and social goods, raise their targeted one of the few remaining materials supports the working class and oppressed. ---- The antiasfalistiko bill passed by parliament, is another face of the new war which has declared the local and international capital to employees, self-employed, farmers, pensioners and by extension to all people who support with their incomes ( children, relatives with chronic diseases, etc.). After the new criminal bill in social security, is more evident than ever that an all-out counterattack class, in the fields of ...

The issue of meat consumption, particularly in relation to the ill-treatment of animals in slaughterhouses, is a topical issue. To think about it, meet Sylvain, a farmer in the Var in mixed farming, a producer of organic ewe's cheeses, and a member of the Peasant Confederation. ---- Alternative libertarian: In recent months, several videos of the association L214 showing the conditions of slaughter shocked the public opinion and pushed the political class to react. What is the reaction of breeders to these videos? ---- Some images have shocked, there are things inadmissible for our breeders. When one sees a swinging type of sheep against the railing, it is out of question that he do this with my animals, it revolts me to see him. But you have to analyze these videos a bit, because it is important to know what you are watching, and you have to try to understand. I find ...

River Rebellion January 4, 2017 black lives matter, history, police No Comment
On September 9th, prisoners all over the country went out on strike against slavery in the United States. ---- You read that right. It may sound like an exaggeration, but slavery continues to this day across ---- US, made legal by the 13th amendment. ---- "But the 13th Amendment abolished slavery," you might be thinking. You'd be at least partially correct. The 13th Amendment ended the traditional use of chattel slavery that had been the backbone of the South's economy in the lead-up to the Civil War. However, it left open a very big loophole for slavery to continue in a new form. ---- To quote the amendment: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime ... shall exist within the United States." This meant that slavery could be moved into the prisons, with ...

The Coordination of Arnarchist Groups (CGA) affirms its solidarity with Théo, who was raped, beaten and insulted by four policemen on the second of last February.

(en) US, Black Rose Rochester, Genesee River Rebellion: IN THE ELECTIONS OF 2016
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Feb 19 07:18:13 GMT 2017

In the elections of 2016, Americans have run out of options. During one of the most money-saturated elections in history, voters have been left to choose between two candidates who, in spite of their rhetoric, have far more commonalities than differences. ---- On November 8th, the US electorate will go to the polls without any way to vote against the interests of Goldman Sachs or ExxonMobil. They will pull levers and scribble in bubbles, without ever being able to voice their opposition to fracking, mass incarceration, US support for Israel, police violence, or mass surveillance. With little enthusiasm, they'll cast their ballots knowing what's become so obvious - that whoever wins, we all lose. ---- Whoever wins, the wealth gap will continue to widen. Though both Trump and Clinton have expressed some support for raising the minimum wage, both have also ...


(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #268 - Agriculture: Does organic food change the world? (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun Feb 19 07:17:54 GMT 2017

Organic farming has fueled strong disillusionment in sixty years of existence. Little supported by legislation, quickly subverted by the capitalist logic, the "real" organic is marginalized. However, by maintaining remunerative prices for production, the sector today represents a salvation board and conversions are numerous. A good time to consolidate the initiatives that attempt to actualize the radical social and ecological demand of the beginnings. ---- Since when organic agriculture[1], understood as an alternative to agribusiness, does it exist? Its official recognition and definition date back to the specifications set out by Nature & Progrès (N & P) in 1972. At that time, the movement already has a bit of history behind it, and is part of a continuity of protest.
