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."
(en) Britain, brighton solfed: Council report shows G4 Lets knowingly flaunted legal fire, pest control duties
Mon Feb 19 06:25:00 GMT 2018
Watch the tenants from our dispute with G4 Lets explain that an Environmental Health Report shows that G4Lets neglected their legal decoration, fire, and pest control duties, then charged the tenants for decoration, fire, and pest control. ---- For the past four months, two groups of tenants have been organising with us after they collectively had £3000 withheld from their deposits at the end of their tenancies. G4Lets have largely maintained the legitimacy of these deductions throughout this dispute, even selectively quoting from an Environmental Health Report to claim that it supported them in this matter. The tenants in one of these disputes have now obtained a copy of this report, and it shows precisely the opposite. The report, delivered to director of G4Lets Mark Shields before the tenants moved out, states: 'I am writing to remind you that as an owner/manager ...

Gender identify is an integral part of human existence. In this respect, Diren Coskun's demands for the right to health from the prison administration are also related with protection of her personal intergrifty and the respect for the right to personality.

Recent News ---- The Australian government has issued a deportation order for Santharuban, a Tamil refugee currently detained at the MITA detention centre in Broadmeadows, despite the fact that he faces likely torture and possible death at the hands of the Sri Lankan regime if he is deported. ---- The United Nations committee against torture have requested that the Australian government halt the deportation, so naturally Australian Border Force intend to deport Santharuban as soon as possible. ---- The Tamil Refugee Council and Close the Camps Action Collective are calling for a demonstration this Sunday, 2pm, outside the MITA detention facility at 150 Camp Road, Broadmeadows. The hope is that protest action will signal to the Sri Lankan government that any attempt to disappear Santharuban will be noticed and will be subject to international attention. ...

(en) Greece, Political call to the demonstration against Lukovmarch in Sofia, Bulgaria By APO (gr) [machine translation]

Internationalist solidarity to sweep the fascist threat to the Balkans ---- Political call to the demonstration against Lukovmarch ---- February 17, 2018 | Sofia - Bulgaria ---- On a planetary level, the state and capitalist machinery is attempting to intensify inequalities, oppression and exploitation. With a view to increasing power and control, modern totalitarianism does not hesitate to form warfare in the region while continuing to strike against the rebellious strata in the West. Inside this swarm of cultivated insecurity, racist and intolerant narratives of fascist groupings, which are an integral part of the total movement of the ruling bloc, find development territory. ---- In the US, the fascists are murdering Charlottesville openly to terrorize the anti-fascist movement, while the police execute colorful streets on the streets. In France, social-democrats ...

(en) Britain, SolFed: Brighton Solidarity Federation opens a dispute with Town and City Residential Lettings
Sun Feb 18 07:22:33 GMT 2018
Brighton Solidarity Federation has started a dispute with Town and City Residential Lettings, operating out of English Business Park, near Hove Cemetery. A tenant has been organising with SolFed after the agency failed to address severe mould and damp issues, which the tenant lost several belongings to, and then took the cost of necessary refurbishment and repair out of the tenant's deposit. The tenant, a single mother dealing with anxiety, has suffered repeated harassment and bullying by the agency. This has come to a climax with the agency demanding at first £200 from the tenant's deposit, arbitrarily raising this figure to £780, and then making a final, ludicrous demand for £1030. ---- Along with the Tenant, Brighton Solfed wrote to the agency on the 29th of January in order to lay out the issues and put forward options for redress. We were disappointed (but not ...

Local elections are approaching, and committees are being formed. Apparently, but still life can surprise us to a greater or lesser extent. Well, the committee, whose faces are the wife of the incumbent president and one of the vice presidents, without any embarrassment, we will present ourselves in the campaign as "social workers " - under the logo of "Right to the City" (PdM) . ---- This situation proves the total loss of political independence of the environment, which in fact for several years was an important, though more and more divided, voice of the social side. Today, it is an annex of the Liberals from the PO, which allows them to maintain influence in the city. Therefore, PdM must be treated in this campaign as a ruling group that fully shares responsibility for what has happened in the city over the past four years. And these were not only - as it may seem to ...

"There must not be a single human being to whom knowledge - not semi / superficial knowledge, but the true know - is denied by lack of time or means." ---- Letter from Piotr Kropotkin to Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia ---- Because we are increasingly the members of the educational community that denounce the mercantilist and authoritarian derivatives of Public Education, which by definition must be universal, secular, democratic, free and of quality. ---- Because we want a education of all and for all, tolerant, inclusive and with resources that are not built on Decrees of Autonomy of Centers (102/2010) or Decrees of templates (6591 27.3. 2014). ---- Because we want to awaken critical awareness, not to teach superficial contents; A rational and practical knowledge within the reach of the people and not only of companies and of the privileged. ...
(en) [Greece] Let's talk about modern fascism, part VII By ANA (pt) [machine translation]
Sun Feb 18 07:03:42 GMT 2018
In this post one can read the seventh part of a series of thematic articles on the diachrony of fascism in the territory of the Greek state. The original article entitled "Let's talk about modern fascism" and subtitled "updating our analysis and organizing the war against its roots and not just against the declared fascists," was published on the site of the anarchist collective of Volos Manifesto. All parts can be read here. ---- Nationalism - leftist "patriotism" has many legs ... ---- "But we do not want to defeat fascism to replace it with something worse. Worse than fascism is the consolidation of the state. Fascists beat, burn, murder, violate all the rules of freedom, crush the most offensive of workers' dignity. But frankly, all the evil that fascism has done over the last two years (and will continue to do so long as the workers tolerate it) can be ...
