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."

The fire of revolt lit centuries ago by Kawa, is continuing to be flared up. Today is the day Kawa the Blacksmith confronted tyrant Dehaq and said "Hey the palace owner, I came here to fight with you for justice!". Today is the day of struggle and revolt, the day of freedom by resistance. Today is the day to grow the fire of revolt against the genocide attempts, massacres by chemical waeponsn, forced migration and politics of assimilation in the geography we live in, fighting the same struggle of justice in the path that Kawa took. Today is Newroz! ---- As Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF), we were in the fields for newroz flaring up the fire. The state politics of denial and destruction will neither put off the fire of revolt, not stop the halay dance of freedom.

The occupation of Apollo House in Dublin was the largest direct action in Ireland in recent years, but it did not materialize out of nowhere. ---- On December 16, 2016 media reporters and cameramen jostled each outside the carpark of Apollo House, a nine-storey city center office building in Dublin that had been lying vacant for over a year. The journalists were there to report on a "public intervention" into the ongoing homelessness emergency in the city, in which a campaign group called Home Sweet Home, led by well-known celebrities and musicians Glen Hansard and Damien Dempsey, occupied the empty building and opened it as a hostel for the city's homeless. ---- In the face of a housing crisis that has been intensifying ever since the economic crash in 2008, visible rough sleeping on the city's streets, rising homelessness statistics, soaring rent, and the large-scale purchase ...

The Class Struggle Knows No Borders! ---- If we see the signs right, we're about to live through a stage of populism unparalleled in recent decades. The result is a world where the workers are divided and oppressed through nationalist and racist rhetoric. Against the project of a world full of new walls running along borders and through our minds, we need a project to tear down all walls and instead connect workers to organize solidarity and mutual aid. We have no more time to cultivate differences - let's instead search for what connects our struggles for better living conditions and for a world without exploitation and oppression. ---- The FAU calls on all individuals, initiatives, collectives, grassroots trade unions, etc. to participate in an international action day on "Work and Migration". On the 1st of May we would like to express class solidarity with migrants by ...

In February 2015, Alternative libertarian chronicled the experiment of "alternative democracy" conducted in the village of Saillans (Drôme). Since the municipalities of March 2014, this village tries to operate on a daily basis according to self-management principles. ---- Everything started with a bluff. In 2013, after a victorious struggle of residents and residents of Saillans (Drôme)[1 ]against a project to open a supermarket carried by the mayor, the people invested in this fight say: "It is not possible, we Can not let this mayor win the elections again. " Indeed, there is no other candidate. ---- The collective of struggle organizes a public meeting to discuss it, equipped with methods coming from popular education (because Tristan Rechid, one of its initiators, was director of social center and used them fluently). At this meeting, a diagnosis of the village ...

Wed Mar 22 10:09:01 GMT 2017

The two demonstrations against the police violence of 11 and 16 February, which followed the "Théo case", evidently turned into riots and plunder. On the Internet, the "autonomous" networks are amazed: by boldly crossing the ring road, their shock troops would have finally made the junction with "the young people of the suburbs". ---- Riots and looting are the only weapons of populations deprived of social perspective and "the young people of the suburbs" need neither the expertise nor the reinforcements of the autonomes of Paris to make the districts flare up! The riot is factory occupation for those who are without real work. ---- Since the 1980s, by the riot gesture, young people from the neighborhoods have revolted against their everyday lives, obtaining subsidies, jobs and jobs, in short obtaining results from elected officials who buy social peace. ...
