Syndication Of A-Infos - including RDF - How to Syndicate A-Infos
In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles

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."

Prague demonstration in support of the autonomous region of Rojava, attacked by the Turkish army and its supported mercenaries ---- Since the launch of the latest occupation attack by the army of the Turkish autocrat Erdogan, protest events have been taking place all over the world, as has been the case in the Czech Republic. The biggest public performance so far in support of Rojava autonomy took place on Wednesday, October 16, in several cities. In Prague alone, about 600 people gathered for a demonstration organized by the Committee for the Defense of the Revolution in Rojava, which also involves anarchists and anarchists from the AF. ---- The event was convened at six o'clock in the evening.

Sun Oct 20 06:09:00 GMT 2019
At the highest summit of the state, Islamophobia is now completely assumed. Muslim people or considered as such are in danger. The urgency is for a strong response. UCL calls on all those who want to fight for equality to react together. ---- A minister calling to report " little boys who refuse to hold the hand of girls ."

Sun Oct 20 06:07:10 GMT 2019
Time for our 4th and final session of the year. When we set up the reading group, we didn't have high expectations, especially in Darlington, but the sessions have been great fun, bringing together socialists from all positions for fruitful and interesting discussions. ---- Our fourth session will be the second of our two-parter on environmentalism. In our first session, we read and discussed some classic anarchist and communist texts relating the environment, nature and ecology. In this session, we'll look to read 2 contemporary texts from revolutionary organisations, Anarchist Federation and Internationalist Commune of Rojava. ---- Originally, we weren't going to include the text from the Internationalist Commune of Rojava, so it isn't mandatory, but with the recent Turkish invasion of Rojava, we think it is an important and opportune time to look at the ...
(en) Czech, AFED: Expressions of solidarity with Rojava - Resistance to Turkish aggression in the north of Syria can be manifested in various ways... [machine translation]
Sun Oct 20 06:04:02 GMT 2019
The situation of the project of democratic confederalism is desperate, both because of the attack by the Turkish army and its supported Islamist militias, and because of the circumstances of a forced suicide alliance with the Syrian dictator Assad. That is why we feel obliged to show our solidarity with the local people, condemn the occupational aggression associated with ethnic cleansing and currently press the political and economic elite who are deaf, supportive or financially benefiting from this happening. Everyone can get involved in different ways. ---- Bratislava ---- In Bratislava, on October 14, the Turkish embassy was symbolically locked by a chain to protest against Turkish war aggression in northern Syria. Whoever wanted to come to the embassy could unlock the lock with keys thrown on the ground. But there was a sign saying 'I support Turkish fascism'. ...

The situation on our planet has never been so alarming. 60% of vertebrate species reduced since 1970, 13 million hectares deforested in the last 10 years, 30% of thaw only during the twentieth century and an increase in the average temperature of the planet since 2015 of 1º C (and will continue to rise 0 '2º C per year). In 2018, carbon dioxide emissions, far from being reduced, grew 2.7%. Meanwhile, 92% of the world's population breathes unhealthy air, responsible for 8.8 million deaths worldwide (10,000 in Spain). Heat waves aggravate the diseases of the weakest by increasing mortality, to the point that that of 2003 caused 70,000 deaths throughout Europe (6,000 in Spain). All these data are an incontestable reality,
(en) Belarus, pramen: Anarchist group from Belarus joined the #TetrisChallenge
Sat Oct 19 08:29:22 GMT 2019
"The essence of a flashmob is to expose the inventory, somehow connected to the participants, according to knolling principle. It is a method of ordering the space through organizing different stuff in quadrature. #TetrisChallenge by now is one of the most popular hashtags in a social media. ---- We tried to reflect the generalized character of the anarchist: from the Molotov cocktails to a radical literature, and also expressed our solidarity with Belarusian political prisoner Dmitry Polienko. Dmitry is now imprisoned, waiting for court trial for around 7 month, the dictatorship prosecutes him, using 5 (!) articles of a criminal codes. The authorities decided to judge him into a closed court hearing. The hearing will take place at October, 17th."
(en) IWW Istanbul's Statement on the Turkish Invasion of Syria
Sat Oct 19 08:29:13 GMT 2019
Istanbul Industrial Workers of the World's statement against the invasion of Syria. The following statement was originally published on Yeryüzü Postasi. ---- We call on all workers - workers who are exploited under this system, workers who have become increasingly impoverished and who are being sent to die - not to join this war, but to unite against it. ---- At a time when war is taking place in Syria, war which has no purpose other than death, destruction, and poverty, the AKP government launched a mission of occupation that will only further increase chaos. Like the previous occupation of Afrin, this operation shows that neither Russia, the US, nor other imperialist powers care about the Kurdish people.
This operation is a continuation of the extermination and denial of the Kurdish state ...
(en) Italy, federazione anarchica FAI: With the people of Rojava, against the authoritarianism of all states
Sat Oct 19 08:24:49 GMT 2019
Since the 9th of October, the Turkish state has started its invasion of Rojava, endeavouring a new war against the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, with indiscriminate bombardments and with the use of ground troops. ---- For the Turkish government, it is necessary to annihilate a dangerous example of resistance and experimentation of freedom in the region, one which is based on communities that decided to embrace a confederal, feminist and radically ecologist revolution. ---- This is the true reason for this attack. Even admitting that the ‘Operation Peace Spring' will be limited to ‘securitise' a 30-kilometre fringe along the entire border, as initially declared by the Turkish authorities, this war will be devastating. In this fringe, there are many towns and villages that play an important role in the social experiments ongoing ...
