Syndication Of A-Infos - including RDF - How to Syndicate A-Infos

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."

Fri Aug 22 07:38:55 GMT 2014
At the beginning of June, this year, broke out in São Paulo a strike by subway workers, which lasted about a week. Since the beginning of the strike, the union leadership of the subway led by SoL and PSTU, trying at all costs to negotiate strategies to fight with the government, demonstrating its true role. Gone as far as to play the government's decision to release or not the subway turnstile, and of course it was not done. ---- The bourgeois justice gave his declaration that the strike should provide 100% of the service during peak hours and 70% during normal hours. However, workers were not intimidated and paralyzed the entire service. The workers were harshly repressed, but was firmly put in resistance, clashing with the repressive forces, demonstrating (as well as the strike of garbage collectors, road and teachers) the power of direct action of the masses, who can ...
(en) Chile, Libertarian Students Front FEL - Declaration Libertarian Left to call for mobilization of August 21, 2014 (ca, pt) [machine translation]
Fri Aug 22 07:31:21 GMT 2014
The people of Chile goes back to the streets to demand real changes in the educational field and the construction of a new Public Education System. That's why as Libertarian Left turn to speak out in support of the demands of the popular movement, which has claimed by the street free public education, quality and without profit, and all those social rights that have taken from us. ---- We see in the government of the New Majority has weakened the idea of fundamental reforms, as promised during the presidential campaign. By contrast, logic has imposed consensus with conservatives in their own party and right, promoting cosmetic changes and no transformers. This has meant that the New Majority has had to deploy forces to co-opt the students' demands and subordinate Movement and the whole social field, to meet the "new agreements" reached with the Right and ...

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution. ---- About 200 residents from the city of Ferguson came together to protest the terror.

(en) WSM.ie: Ireland, The WSM on LGBT people partnership, shared custody rights, and civil marriage
Thu Aug 21 17:23:46 GMT 2014
In the context of existing social structures, the WSM believes that LGBT people should have exactly the same partnership and shared custody rights as heterosexuals including the right to civil marriage. To this end, the organisation is opposed to civil partnership as inadequate. The organisation sees civil partnership as another example of institutional discriminatory legislation. ---- However, we see the expansion of civil marriage to include same-sex couples as ultimately insufficient as a goal for the queer or anarchist movements. We recognise the historical origins of marriage in patriarchy and sexual repression. Moreover we see the existence of an institutionalised normative form of relationship as inherently exclusionary to those whose sexuality doesn’t fit with that standard, and instead call for a society which is inclusive of all "forms of free and ...

The Determinations Committee of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA, see the website dc.isda.org) is equivalent to a global classification instance "risks", stating, for example, if a country is in default (default) or do not. This body was created in 2009 to try to impose a legitimacy from the fraudsters themselves in the global financial system.
