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."
(en) Britain, brighton solfed: Demand letter delivery wins dispute with student lettings agency, filed under:
Sat Feb 23 10:34:15 GMT 2019
In late October 2018, we organised with a student tenant who was being messed around with a disrepair issue by a well-known student lettings agency. We'd beaten this agency before via a direct-action campaign - this time all it took was the delivery of a demand letter to get this tenant compensation. Below, the tenants tells the story of the dispute. ---- One of our toilets was out of action for the best part of six months. If used, faeces would back up and overflow out of the toilet. This plumbing damage was caused by a fire that wasn't disclosed to us. Although we had use of another toilet, the toilet that was overflowing was directly next door to the kitchen that meant alongside being inconvenienced, it was quite a disgusting and hazardous living situation prior to calling the plumbers to fix it. ...
(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #291 - Point of view, The basic income, bread of the revolution ? (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Sat Feb 23 10:33:47 GMT 2019
Money is the nerve of war but also the bread of the revolution ! The idea of a basic income associated with an extension of the field of free education allows to create the conditions for a more united society, freed from the weight of the bosses. This text was presented at the International Forum on Free Education organized in Lyon on January 5, 2019 by the International Observatory of Free. ---- So often hunger leads peoples to the revolution, the fear of it also immobilizes us. By guaranteeing everyone the means to live with dignity, the basic income can give confidence and help initiate a paradigm shift towards a libertarian society. ---- A basic income, as defended by Baptise Mylondo, which makes it possible to live outside employment, is a tool, not only for fighting against poverty but also for emancipation of peoples. ...

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #291 - Migrations: The creation of the "problem" (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Sat Feb 23 10:25:16 GMT 2019
A few months away from the European elections of May 2019, which will be dominated by the migration issue and the " migrant crisis ", and in a context where overtly racist and xenophobic discourses are being liberated, it is necessary to review the evolution of ideological battles around this issue in France and analyze the decisive influence of the far right. ---- The founding of the National Front (FN) in 1972, driven by the young wolves of the tiny New Order group to federate the residues of the extreme right around the person of Jean-Marie Le Pen, marks the will to leave the political marginality to which she is confined since the Liberation. ---- The creation of the " problem " of immigration ---- Iconic FN poster from the 1970s. ---- Under the impetus in 1978 of François Duprat, then number two, the FN seized the immigration theme: " 1 million ...
(en) Czech, afed: Encourage the accused in the network case [machine translation]
Fri Feb 22 07:37:29 GMT 2019
We bring you an overview of the network and contacts contacts you can write to them. ---- We have written the Network several times (see overview below). The Russian repressive apparatus came up with the idea of paralyzing anarchist and anti-fascist movements in a process with a devised terrorist organization called by the Russian security apparatuses Network. Similarly, their Czech counterparts in the Fénix case have been tried in recent years by police infiltration. In our country, besides the doubtful preparation of the attack, the threats and the binding prosecution of the repressive component, they did not succeed any more. The Russians still have proven methods, including dust-torture and forced confessions. You can learn more about these practices, for example, in the document Network, which you can watch here with Czech subtitles . ...
(en) Letter from the Zapatista Women to Women in Struggle Around the World (ca)
Fri Feb 22 07:37:20 GMT 2019
Sister, compañera: We as Zapatista women send you our greetings as the women in struggle that we all are. ---- We have sad news for you today, which is that we are not going to be able to hold the Second International Encounter of Women in Struggle here in Zapatista territory in March of 2019. ---- Maybe you already know the reasons why, but if not, we're going to tell you a little about them here. ---- The new bad governments have said clearly that they are going to carry forward the megaprojects of the big capitalists, including their Mayan Train, their plan for the Tehuantepec Isthmus, and their massive commercial tree farms. They have also said that they'll allow the mining companies to come in, as well as agribusiness. On top of that, their agrarian plan is wholly oriented toward destroying us as originary peoples by converting our lands into commodities and thus ...
(en) Sindicato Único de Trabajadores Solidaridad Obrera -- MEETING OF THE COORDINATOR ROJINEGRA IN MADRID (ca)[machine translation]
Fri Feb 22 07:18:04 GMT 2019
During this weekend the Assembly of the RojiNegra Coordinator was developed in Madrid, of which Solidaridad Obrera participates with other anarcho-syndical centrals: ESE from Greece, IP from Poland, CNT-France, SAC from Sweden, USI from Italy, and CGT also since Spain. ---- For Solidaridad Obrera, one of the most remarkable events of this meeting has been the willingness, on the part of all the members of the RojiNegra Coordinator, to continue working within it, highlighting the validity, not only the principle of internationalism within the labor movement, but other principles such as solidarity or mutual support. ---- The campaigns proposed to be carried out by the Coordinator, such as support for Kurdistan or Palestine, campaigns against trade agreements (TTIP, CETA or TISA), the defense of public services ... are a faithful reflection of these principles ...
(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #291 - Geothermal: Who pays the fractured pots ? (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Fri Feb 22 07:17:52 GMT 2019
The heat extracted from the depths of the Earth's crust can provide abundant and relatively cheap energy. Problem: it is not renewable and the State organizes the impunity of the farmers in case of collateral damage due to the fraction of the grounds. ---- The geothermal resource in France is distributed unevenly over the territory. Heat extraction technologies differ depending on availability. While individual use is possible everywhere, this is not the case for an industrial operation reserved for large deposits. Extraction, deposits: the exploitation of geothermal energy is controlled by the Bureau of Geological and Mining Research (BRGM), manager of the subsoil in France. In fact, the state is the main financier of geothermal research, even if some particularly favored regions like Alsace invest a lot in this energy when other regions focus only on ...
(en) bangladesh asf: Progression of Imperialism on Earth!
Thu Feb 21 07:51:13 GMT 2019
Imperialism is the extension of a nation's power by territorial acquisition or economic and political dominance of other nations. For example, American imperialism etc. its characteristics is the economic, military, and cultural influence of the United States on other countries. Such influence often goes hand in hand with expansion into foreign territories. Empire is constantly evolving to thwart the people's movement. Imperialism has changed significantly since its beginning. The period of traditional colonialism during which the imperial powers literally occupied colonial lands mostly came to a close around the end of World War 2. ---- The shattered empires of Europe could no longer occupy vast lands around the world. Their weakened armies could not match the people's movements and decolonial struggles that emerged. Decolonization did not mean real independence for ...
(en) avtonom: Yellow Vests: Act 14, marches and repression [machine translation]
Thu Feb 21 07:50:29 GMT 2019
The protests of the Yellow Vests against the rich government and its antisocial policies continue in France for 14 weeks. The steadfastness of the movement and the stubbornness of the French people, who do not stop fighting for their rights, despite the police violence and deceptive maneuvers of the authorities, is striking. Official media, various analysts and government officials weekly shout the final of the movement, but Saturday and tens of thousands of French come again on the streets. Again the police bustle - tear gas, grenades and rubber bullets. But "Yellow vests" - continue to fight. This time they plan to take to the streets and on Sunday - to celebrate the third month since the beginning of the protests. To the initial demands for the abolition of the new tax on fuel and the revision of policies that worsen the standard of living of ordinary people, as the ...
