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."

During Carnival, the Occupation Palmares was invaded twice by the Military and Police Floram, who overthrew a home without official order and also took all the belongings of a family. Below is the first video documentary on the Occupation Palmares, produced after that occurred. This video deconstructs the version used by the media of Florianópolis on the procedures of the PM and the reading of zoning conducted by Floram. ---- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3Af1hgW2Ug ---- Reporting the Autonomous Struggle Front for Housing (FALM): ---- The last Saturday of Carnival, around 14 pm, Floram, Military and Police SHOCK authors were a criminal and disastrous operation in Occupation Palmares, located in Upper Caeira in range of Morro da Cruz (Florianópolis / SC).

What is this mysterious man who walks these two borzois on the beach of Santa Maria del Mar? ---- This question arises tirelessly Ivan is not the pretext of a tirade about the passion for canines but the starting point for a story about the history masterfully staged in The Man Who Loved Dogs, paved 750 pages. In a style that is both simple and powerful, Leonardo Padura traces the career of Ramon Mercader, Moscow agent who murdered Trotsky, his involvement in the Spanish Civil War to the fatal outcome in Mexico in 1940 and even later. The story takes us behind the scenes, abyssal, frightening and exciting, history of the twentieth century is here fictionalized but richly inspired by facts and real people.

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #235 - Classic subversion: Dominic Rousseau "The Red priest, life and death of Jacques Roux" (fr, pt) [machine translation]
Mon Mar 10 13:43:08 GMT 2014
Spartacus editions come to seem a biography of Jacques Roux, written by Dominic Rousseau: The red priest, life and death of Jacques Roux . This revolutionary priest, relatively unknown compared to the great figures of the French Revolution as Robespierre and Danton, was nevertheless one of the figureheads of enrages. They were one of the closest of our ideas during the French Revolution political trends (1789-1794). Indeed, in the history books, the French Revolution is seen as the triumph of the bourgeoisie over the nobility and royalty. This is not entirely true. It was also a time when the popular classes (workers and peasants) were expressed at the ruling classes (bourgeoisie and nobility). Independent workers and urban workers have sometimes clashed violently with the interests of the bourgeoisie, especially in Paris. ...

Attempts to recover the International Day WRESTLING women, who tend to make this day a simple celebration of LA Woman, are numerous. So we need to do to show that equality is far from being achieved and that we are ready to fight for the win. This year, we descend into the streets on March 8 to protest against exploitation and wage, including domestic and sexual domination against women. ---- With the crisis, it is women who bear the brunt: abortion closures imposed part-time, lower wages centers 27% for equal work, retirement pensions of only 780 euros on average ...

"In our struggle, there are women who do not let themselves be treated as an ornament or be humiliated and despised for being around women, but are organized and fighting for the respect they deserve as women are." -Women Zapatistas- ---- Today as yesterday, we commemorate March 8 as an important historical memory of the resistance of the oppressed day, we must raise our voice for everyone to hear that we have not forgotten the 146 textile workers who lost their lives fighting for a living without wage discrimination work and, in general, all those anonymous women who have been abused not only by their sex and gender, but also by their class, race or sexual orientation, we have not forgotten that throughout of the history we have always condemned to exert a specific role as women and men, a role that has been imposed on us and which does not allow the free development ...

Eight months ago are conducting a workshop with public speaking and body language employed in private homes organized SINTRACAP (Union of Household Workers). What motivated us in the first instance as a group to make these workshops is our approach, recognition and encouragement of transformation, multiple inequalities regarding women who live in today's society. Inequalities that shape a network of overt oppression in the feminization of poverty, wage discrimination, sex segregation of the labor market, sexual violence and harassment, prostitution, etc.. ---- This experience has been crucial for us because we have not only raised awareness of the various deep injustices that oppress women who experience patriarchy as their gender and / or sex. We have also witnessed the little help and / or support, and focus precarious women workers with jobs related to the reproductive ...
(en) The Political Thought of Errico Malatesta by Felipe Corrêa (pt)
Sun Mar 09 12:40:08 GMT 2014
This text is divided into four main parts for the presentation of Malatesta’s political thought: a.) a brief description of the author’s life, the political environment in which he found himself and his main interlocutors; b.) a theoretical-epistemological discussion, which differentiates science from doctrine/ideology and, therefore, the methods of analysis and social theories of anarchism. A notion that will be applied to the discussion of Malatestan thought itself; c.) theoretical-methodological elements for social analysis; d.) conception of anarchism and strategic positions. ---- “Errico Malatesta remains alive and integrally present in our spirits and memories”– Luigi Fabbri ---- Introduction ---- To deal with the political thought of Errico Malatesta is not a simple task and is something that must be carried out with necessary caution. It is relevant to bear in mind ...
