In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles in several languages, covering a wide range of areas.
These include workplace, environmental and anti-imperialist struggles as well as the fight against racism, sexism and homophobia.

lots of
work to do


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.


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."

Sun Apr 22 06:47:10 GMT 2018

A hundred cruise missiles were launched against the military installations of the Assad regime. In the aftermath the US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stated that the United States was "locked and loaded". Together the US, France and Britain have engaged in bombings that will be of no benefit to the Syrian masses suffering under the murderous regime of Bashar Assad. ---- It can be seen that all three regimes in the USA, France and Britain have their own domestic problems, and that a military adventure is always a good ploy to divert attention. Trump is wrestling with the ongoing Muller investigation, the revelations of ex-FBI Director Comey, and ongoing legal wrangles with porn star Stormy Daniels and polls that show his lack of popularity. Theresa May is faced with serious divisions in her own Party, deepening problems over Brexit, not to mention ...

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #282 - 80 km / h on the roads: five reasons to kick back (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Sun Apr 22 05:56:42 GMT 2018

This measure, positive for road safety, is indicative of social and territorial inequalities. ---- The government has decided to limit speed on the roads " without land full central " at 80km / h instead of 90km / h from July 2018. This decision is clearly not unanimous among the population. ---- The National Front seized the issue by launching a petition. Another of the Driver's League exceeds 2 million signatories. For their part, " progressive " militant circles laugh yellow: " People do not move for refugees, but for their car there are people ". Yet, generally speaking, we are not used to thinking that one fight prevents another. Is there not an unhealthy side to despise everyday claims that seem to affect a lot of people ? What, are not we collectively affected by this measure ? Under the pretext that it is not labeled " Marx and Bakunin theorized ", ...

(en) [Spain] CGT joins the campaign in defense of the life and dignity of the Mapuche people, By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]
Sat Apr 21 08:21:03 GMT 2018

This community has for centuries been resisting colonizing attempts to end its culture and traditions. Since 2001, violations of the most elementary rights of the Mapuche people have "increased", emphasizing since the anarcho-syndicalist organization. ---- The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) expressed in a statement its "support and collaboration" with the campaign called for the life, dignity and justice of the Mapuche people. ---- They also denounce that "in the Chilean state, police forces have become the armed wing of landowners and large corporations whose main objective is to convert biodiversity and nature into merchandise." "In addition," they add, "the State of Chile refuses to dialogue with the Mapuche population, accusing its leaders of 'terrorists'."

Sat Apr 21 07:23:34 GMT 2018

While the SNCF has achieved, for its 80 years, 1.33 billion euros in profits, the state wants to complete the privatization that will put the coup de grace to the public service, to the detriment of users, users, railwaymen and railway workers. To oppose it, you need a real blocking strike, not the eclipsing strike invented by the CGT, Unsa and CFDT federations ! ---- On 1 st July 2017 Macron addressed some railway workers and railway handpicked: " Are we talking frankly if we hit the debt, what new social pact she is ready to have the train ?[...]We ask the SNCF to go further on the reforms, the status, the mobility, the pension scheme " [1]. Since then, Jean-Cyril Spinetta, former CEO of Air France - which he privatized - has been tasked with writing a report on the future of the public company. Based on its recommendations, taken by the government and SNCF ...

(en) London Anarchist Communist Group: Ideas and Struggles: anarchism yesterday, today and tomorrow
Sat Apr 21 07:23:24 GMT 2018

Anarchism today is part of a long tradition of thought and struggle. This discussion meeting, presented by Brian Morris, will show how many of the ideas of past anarchists, such as Bakunin and Kropotkin, are still relevant today. The reason for this is that their ideas emerged from actual struggles of the working class. However, this does not mean that we should treat these ideas as religious doctrine. They were very much products of their time and issues such as the oppression of women were not at the forefront of their thinking. Though many of the fundamental conditions are still the same, like capitalism and the State, there have been many changes and new struggles which have become relevant. Therefore we need to look for new ideas. But where do we look? The corridors of universities or people involved in struggles? Brian will focus on environmentalism as one ...

A small book from the summer 2017 issue of Alternative libertarian on anarchism in the first sequence of the Russian Revolution, in 1917-1918.

Fri Apr 20 06:50:56 GMT 2018

In a condition where it is impossible to define our experiences, we claim it. We demand that we talk about them and do it publicly. Understanding what's happening to us and analyzing it in terms of politicians helps us understand that we are not alone, we are not alone. By civilizing our lives, we recreate the story. The small and big narratives that we want outside. Apart from history, apart from the games, except for its language and meanings. Feminism enables us to manage our lives and to resist the conditions that cause them, to reverse the conditions and to fight back. ---- A while ago, a comrade - a college and a member of the city - shared with us the people of our assembly, denouncing the "sexual violation of its limits and deprivation of the right to self-determination of her body," as she described the treaty, three cis1 men, two of whom were members of the ...
