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) freedom news: Carrying the war into Africa? Anarchism, Morocco, and the Spanish Civil War

I was approached by Jeff Stein to write up a summary of Abel Paz, La cuestión de Marruecos y la República española so that English-language readers might be made aware of the Spanish anarchist approach to Morocco during the civil war. I would like to thank Jeff for prompting me to write what follows, although he should not be held responsible for its contents or conclusions. ---- ‘A lenient war is a lengthy war, and therefore the worst kind of war. Let us stop it, and stop it effectually[...]stop it on the soil upon which it originated, and among the traitors and rebels who originated the war. This can be done at once, by "carrying the war into Africa."' ---- ‘Frederick Douglass, ‘How to End the War', 1861
The question of why the revolution that accompanied the Spanish Civil War did not ...

Sat Nov 28 08:32:11 GMT 2020

Against all authority ---- We are facing a somewhat special 20N. The height of fascism, institutional or on the street, protected and encouraged by increasingly voracious capitalism, cannot pass without a forceful response. ---- The proliferation of absurd orders, the misinformation and attempts to idiotize the population, the promotion of xenophobia and racism, etc., are forming an objectively dangerous sociology for the development of a free and solidary society, without exploitation, without borders, without CIES, without bars.... ---- From our anti-authoritarian perspective, this rejection must be marked by a critique of power in all its forms. The submission of the person to the interest of the "Fatherland" or "the State" takes new paths. Facing them is a common task. ...

A short documentary about anarchist activities in Croatia that depicts a period of anarchist activities in Croatia (2008-2020), with a focus on the regions of Kvarner (Quarnaro/Carnaro) and Istria, but also on a larger scale across Croatia, and other countries such as Slovenia, Italy, Greece, Germany, Switzerland, and Spain. This document illustrates years of organisation, struggle, and lengthy legal proceedings. ---- The photographs and graphics used in this film are from the period between 2008 and 2020. These visuals depict the student occupation of the university, street protests, workers' strikes, and visual propaganda used for various purposes. On the audio track (an interview from 2016), Radio Borba (Eng. Radio Struggle) interviews Eugen Babic after his conviction in a criminal ...

The Anarchist Federation welcomes the determination of the militant forces, comrades and rivals, the working people and the youth who, through mediation and self-organization, broke the junta-type ban on rallies imposed by the government of the New demonstrations for the Polytechnic. ---- The collectives and individuals of the Anarchist Federation framed the gatherings in the First Student Dormitories of Thessaloniki and Tsimiski, they were found in neighborhoods and squares of Athens and in the block of Support Earth. We also supported the mobilizations in Patras and the guarded occupation of the Branch. We carried out symbolic interventions together with other comrades in Argos and Loutraki. We gave a symbolic response to the far-right characterizations of New ...


(en) Germany, Evibes: Rally against patriarchal violence (de)

The "International Day against Violence against Women" will take place on November 25th. This topic is more relevant than ever, whether we look at the increase in domestic violence in covid-times, the countless femicides (murders of women* due to their gender) worldwide, the criminalization of abortion e.g. in Poland or the intolerable everyday attacks on women*. ---- This day has a tradition that goes back to the murder of the Mirabal sisters, members of the "Movimiento Revolucionario 14 de Junio" in the Dominican Republic. After several previous arrests they were kidnapped and murdered by the militia of dictator Rafael Trujillo in 1960. They became a symbol of resistance of women* against injustice and violence against them. ---- Today we oppose any kind of patriarchal ...

Act III of the undocumented movement ended on October 17 after a month of marches throughout France. Act I, in Paris on May 30, then Act II, on June 20 throughout the country, had mobilized thousands of people. ---- This day of mobilization was historic. And yet, she was below expectations. Very busy and dynamic processions on three entrances to Paris converged on Place de la République. But here the crowd - 10,000 to 15,000 people - was below expectations. ---- Departure from Marseille, September 19 ---- cc Benjamin UCL Marseille ---- Stopover in Montreuil, October 15 ---- cc Guillaume UCL Montreuil ---- We were able to parade, despite the prefecture which had banned the west of Paris " to anyone claiming to be part of the March of the sans-papiers " (sic), but neither on the ...


(en) Slovakia, priama akcia: The book "We Fight for Ourselves: Anarcho-Syndicalism and the Class Struggle" is published (ca, it, pt)[machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Fri Nov 27 08:17:00 GMT 2020

The Breaking Point Publishing House (NBZ) publishes a Slovak translation of a book, which we can boldly call the best introduction to anarcho-syndicalism. It perfectly captures its theoretical side, development, practice, methods and goals. The book clearly clarifies the differences between anarcho-syndicalism and other currents in the workers' movement and provides valuable criticism of classical trade unions. It also refutes several stereotypes caused by the lack of information and the lack of anarcho-syndicalist tradition in Slovakia. The book is in a handy format 11x18 cm with a special color cover and has 198 pages. It came out in a limited edition of 100 pieces. For a voluntary contribution (production costs were € 3.79) can be ordered at NBZ. ...

The following is a recording of the ACG public discussion meeting on the Labour Party, which took place online on Wednesday 4th November 2020. ----- Listen on our At the Cafe podcast page (Just scroll down the list to the end) ---- Blurb from the meeting publicity ---- Many people, thirsty for social change, have been lured to the Labour Party during the recent wave of Corbynism. Some of those are now reconsidering their membership of a Party led by Sir Keir Starmer and are looking for alternatives. ---- We in the Anarchist Communist Group argue that the Labour Party has always been a will o' the wisp,* something that diverts away from real social change. It has never been a socialist party and has always taken the side of capitalism and imperialism, as we explain in our talk. Whether ...

On Monday, November 16, the process of consultation of collective redundancies at Kantar Polska SA - a research company in which since September this year the works commission of the Employee Initiative operates. Our union committee decided not to sign the agreement on dismissals, considering that the conditions proposed by the employer did not meet the expectations of the staff. Below we publish a communication from the Works Committee of OZZ Employee Initiative at Kantar Polska SA regarding consultations on collective redundancies in the company. ---- As the plant committee in Kantar, on Monday, November 16, we concluded a series of talks with the management board of our company that we had been conducting since the end of October in connection with the launch of the collective layoffs ...
