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

27 people commit suicide every day in France ... And try to do 700. Furthermore, a study by the Economic and Social Council indicates that nearly 400 suicides per year would be work-related, not to mention all those who are not recognized as such (by bosses surprisingly). Boxes as Renault, Orange, PSA, Thales, H & M, EDF or SNCF regularly news for this tragic reason. Of course, for suicides company and the closures and other social schemes media speak only big companies, but all sectors, all the boxes regardless of their sizes are affected. The term "act of desperation" is often cited when a suicide because of work is related but other acts are described as such, especially hunger strikes and threats to the thurne explode. Regarding suicides and hunger strikes, in addition to solidarity, empathy, pain and anger we feel, we can only be arrested (s) by the fact that ...

SECTION: The Story of the Korean Anarchists and the Anarchist Revolution in Manchuria, 1929-1931 ---- Who was Kim Joa-Jin, Korean Anarchist Revolutionary? By ERIC EVERY --- Kim Jao-jin was born in 1889 to a wealthy family. Like many of his generation, his life was shaped by the Japanese imperial government’s colonisation of Korea. This began formally in 1910, but key aspects of Japanese control dated to 1895. The year 1919 saw a massive wave of struggle against colonialism: the March 1st Movement. This was part of a global series of uprisings. ---- Kim became involved in the Korean Independence Army (KIA). In 1920, he helped lead a famous defeat by the KIA of a Japanese army division at the
battle of Ch’ing-Shan. At the same time, he became drawn to anarchism by his relative, Kim Jong-Jin. Anarchism / syndicalism was a very powerful force in the Korean national ...

Battle for six months! We must sound the alarm bell on the occasion of the event on December 7 against unemployment and poverty. The interests of the unemployed, unemployed, precarious and all are threatened salarié.es: Unédic the Convention, which establishes the conditions for unemployment benefits will be renegotiated in 2014. However, since 1992, almost every negotiation resulted in a regression. ---- The tactic of employers ---- It is proven: 1) when Unédic accounts are in the red, they are "cleans" by cutting benefits, 2) three years later, back in the green: what a bargain, employer contributions are down 3) accounts right back: quick, kidneys benefits ... ---- In 2013, the accounts are in the red. With 15,500 more unemployed receiving benefits in 2013, and still 29,500 more expected in 2014, the debt Unédic could reach €22.3 billion at the end of 2014 . ...

On the occasion of the publication in the journal Movement Exchanges and a brochure China landed in the EU: Chinese Investments and operating conditions for production "Made in Europe" (1) a discussion of the struggles Chinese workers was recently held in Paris. It was introduced by Ralf, who teaches Chinese for ten years and lives to a great extent in China. ---- Ralf is part of a small network of European, American and Chinese whose main activity is to meet the people there, and then put on the Internet (http://www.gongchao.org ) the results of their investigations ( through texts mostly in English) and translate Chinese books. But they also do the opposite, providing Chinese translation of information on workers' struggles around the world - a choice justified by their belief that the struggles in China have a crucial impact on the world situation. ...

Reappraising the Legacy of an Icon ---- A frail multimillionaire dies peacefully in bed at the grand old age of 95, surrounded by a coterie of those who love him and those with an eye on the inheritance, an event that would in the normal course of events be seen as natural—but the man concerned has been treated internationally as more of a supernatural entity than an ordinary man. The unsurpassed hagiography around Nelson Mandela, who died in the über-wealthy enclave of Houghton in Johannesburg last Thursday night, the famous prisoner turned global icon on a par with Mohandas Gandhi is upheld by most observers of South Africa as a necessary myth of national unity, and not least of the triumph of racial reconciliation of over the evils of segregation.
