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) France, Alternative Libertaire - AL Fougères , AL Lorient: policy, Yellow vests: the assembly of Saint-Nazaire sometimes tense, often creative (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Thu Apr 18 05:41:54 GMT 2019
The call of the Assembly of Assemblies, in Saint-Nazaire, is clearly pronounced for the exit of capitalism. Jump forward in the awareness of movement, or forcing the left of the yellow vests ? Not so simple to decide. ---- Nearly 250 delegations, observers, journalists, volunteers, canteens activists ... about 800 people were present from April 5 to 7 at the House of the people of Saint-Nazaire, for the assembly of assemblies (AdA) of the yellow vests. The result is a general appeal and four more on specific themes (" Call for Citizens ' Assemblies ", " Call for European Elections ", " Call for a National Act for the Annulment of Penalties ", " Call for Ecological Convergence" "). The general call will now be rediscussed in local groups. These days have been abundant and intense.

Thu Apr 18 05:41:48 GMT 2019
Desperate people are able to rebel even in the most difficult conditions. But these uprisings are often not similar to what we imagine. ---- On November 6, 2018, the Belarusian social networks stirred up information about a riot in Ivatsevichy colony No. 22 ("Wolf holes"). It was reported that this happened on the night from Saturday to Sunday, and all the convicts took part in the riot in all the detachments. Nothing is known about the rebellion, except that the doors to the detachments were blocked (most likely, they meant wickets to local areas of the barracks - the so-called "lokalki") and that several administration representatives were injured. Requirement - remove the authorities of the colony. ---- We don't know about the reasons that provoked the riot, the reaction of the administration and the consequences. To make more or less reasonable ...
(en) Poland, Workers Initiative: The general strike in education - the balance after the first week [machine translation]
Thu Apr 18 05:36:42 GMT 2019
On Monday, April 8, a general strike in the education industry began. By. data of the organizers (the Polish Teachers' Union and the educational structure of the Trade Unions Forum), on the first day, 14,000 joined him. schools and kindergartens for 20.4 thous. all such facilities (or 68%). Everything indicates that this may be the beginning of a longer protest with a range comparable to the teacher mobilization from 1991-1993. Equally serious as in the 1990s can also be his political repercussions. ---- Genesis - a dispute about wages ---- The immediate reason for the strike is the fiasco of pay negotiations that the PNA and FZZ have been running with the government since March this year. They also participated in the educational "Solidarity", but - as in other industries - it broke from the common front and on 7 April signed the agreement in the version proposed by the ...

Re-evaluating a 1985 Dialogue on Anarchism and Marxism ---- In the 1980s I participated in a "dialogue" about anarchism and Marxism. Re-reading my writing now, when I am a revolutionary anarchist, I think that much of what I wrote then was wrong--with one exception. I went over certain key issues, such as the strengths and weaknesses of Marxism, the state, the revolutionary party, election participation, and national liberation--topics which are still important for anarchists and other radicals to consider and debate. ---- In 1985, I participated in a "dialogue" between the unorthodox-Trotskyist organization I was then a member of and an anarcho-syndicalist organization. The topic was "Where do anarchists and Marxists differ, and can we learn from each other?" From my current perspective as a revolutionary anarchist, I now believe that much of what I then ...
(en) anarkismo.net: Brazil Under Bolsonaro: Social Base, Agenda and Perspectives by Ana García - The Bullet
Thu Apr 18 05:34:33 GMT 2019
The rise of the far right is a worldwide phenomenon, rooted in the nefarious effects of neoliberal globalization which have pushed the world into mass unemployment and enormous inequalities. I consider it to be a late political effect of the global financial crisis that hit the world at the beginning of the twenty-first century. ---- It is not an easy task to explain the phenomenon of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil and to understand the groups that support him, both within and outside government. It's difficult, for anyone, to draw a truly complete and sober analysis of what we have experienced. This essay is not based on in-depth research but on collective reflections and debates. I intend to pose some key questions and try to identify some clues to answer them. ---- Despite its innumerable concessions to the bourgeoisie,why was the Workers Party (PT) attacked by the ...
(en) Greece, ESE: Strike April 12 - On the road along with students and students against an even more class lyceum [machine translation]
Thu Apr 18 05:34:07 GMT 2019
It is amazing how the present government in all areas distorts the meaning of words. The reform of the Lyceum, and especially of its last class, to "rationalize" is a prime example. ---- The third grade is explicitly designated as a preparation class - or better training - for final exams. With incredible cynicism, the left-wing government abolishes an entire class of general education from high school. While today's non-Hellenic courses, which are degraded by the exam-centric system, can contribute to the cultivation and political formation of pupils, in the New Lyceum, course lessons, which have utilitarian value, are leading the timetable. With the Greek exception of the religious ones, which survive, in a curriculum that considers the lesson of History, Biology or Informatics unnecessary. This aspect of the reform is just funny. ...

Evaldo Rosa, a black worker, musician, came back from a social engagement with his family. Those in charge: Army soldiers who patrolled the neighborhood and reportedly still mocked the family after the action. ---- The slave system, embraced by the rich in the nineteenth century, laid the foundations of the structural racism of the elites and today remains a scourge. The Brazilian black population is the majority, but continues to suffer the effects of a class society, built on the foundations of white supremacism. ---- No government in this country has set out to profoundly alter the framework in which black people live. Police violence is one of the pillars of the ongoing genocide committed more than 500 years ago by the Brazilian state.
(en) France, Coordination of Anarchist Groups CGA - Debate "How to think about social change? » With Aurélie Carrier (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Thu Apr 18 05:29:11 GMT 2019
Saturday, April 20, at 18h, at the bookstore the Bad Reputation, 20 rue Terral, the group Another Future of the Coordination of Anarchist Groups will receive Aurélie Carrier to present us his book Le Grand soir , Editions Libertalia, 2017.
This book proposes to study the representations that make up the imagination of the Grand Soir, in the golden age, and their interactions with that of the general strike, at a time when the worker' movement aims to revolutionize. Returning to this moment in history can help us think about the break today, in connection with social movements and their evolution.

Benjamin Netanyahu, at the head of Israel for ten years now, multiplies at the national and international levels alliances with reactionaries of all kinds. Internationally, he is one of the actors in a new alliance between leaders claiming a return to order and morality and the same rejection of democracy and minorities while relying on the possessing classes and the religious fanatics. Overview of the alliances of this new reactionary international and xenophobic. ---- The enemies of my enemies are my friends . This widely used saying is now entirely justified in qualifying the meaning of the alliances policy pursued for many years now by various leaders from within the ranks or supported by parties of the so-called " government right ". ---- Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, Donald Trump in the United States, Viktor Orban in Hungary, Andrzej Duda in Poland and " ...

Wed Apr 17 06:15:55 GMT 2019
In the Spanish state, with massive participation in the general strike and mobilizations of March 8, 2019, feminism once again demonstrated its powerful and transversal power to denounce the complicity between capitalism and patriarchy. " Sin nosotras el mundo no funciona ", the slogan of Spanish feminists, has never been so accurate. ---- Last year, 6 million people took part in the March 8 mobilisations in the Iberian Peninsula ; this year we are talking about double. In the front line, millions of women have occupied the public space, thus taking an irreversible step forward in the process of struggle for equality and total emancipation. Throughout 2018, protests against patriarchal " justice " have been organized for the decriminalization of abortion, sexual violence and machismo violence, building a particularly strong international and global struggle. ...
