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."

SHUTTERSTOCK ---- President Trump's attempt to paint New York City as as "anarchist jurisdiction" in a bid to withhold federal funding has left local anarchists feeling perplexed, amused, and eager to correct the record. ---- "It reinforces the trope, and that's kind of fucked," Thom Kennon, a self-proclaimed anarchist and adjunct marketing professor at NYU, told Gothamist. At the same time, Kennon said he hoped the national attention would get more Americans interested in the left-wing political philosophy. "I immediately Signaled one of my comrades and said, 'Look, what a chance this could be to educate people about what we're really like." ---- He added that Trump's terminology is also wrong, because "anarchists don't do jurisdictions, we do what's called prefigurative politics, building new more equitable worlds now."

In a memo released on Monday, the Department of Justice identified New York, Seattle, and Portland as cities "permitting anarchy, violence, and destruction." The designation follows Trump's threat earlier this month to cut funding to so-called "anarchist jurisdictions," part of ...

The Zádruha Historical Association has long been dedicated to the study and approach of the figures and history of the Czech anarchist movement in the years 1880-1938. On that occasion, he runs a website, publishes brochures, organizes lectures and exhibitions, and cares for places connected with the history of the movement. On Saturday, September 12, the association organized a guided walk through the history of anarchism in Žižkov as part of the accompanying program of Žižkov Nights 2020. ---- Around two o'clock in the afternoon, about 50 people gathered in front of Milíc's house, not far from Parukárka, about the radical history of this Prague district, which was introduced to them by members of Zádruhy Karolína and Martin. The group then walked through Chelcického, Jeseniovu or Štítného streets, where stops took place to talk about people and events connected with these places, such as the most important local representatives of the movement, such as Michael Kácha, Karel Vohryzek, Marie Müllerová or Ladislav Knotek, about newsrooms and printers. anarchist magazines or the anarchist associations that operated here.

(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #307 - Interview, Serge Le Quéau (Solidaires 22), on the Plaintel case: "This cooperative would make any relocation impossible" (de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Sat Sep 26 06:13:44 GMT 2020

The Honeywell factory in Plaintel was able to produce 200 million masks per year, and it closed its doors a few months before the coronavirus crisis ... Scandal of the law of the market that mocks social utility ; state scandal for criminal recklessness ... By defending themselves, workers defend the general interest. Serge Le Quéau, spokesperson for Solidaires 22, tells us more. ---- With the coronavirus disaster, the country discovered with amazement that it did not have stocks of masks, which are essential to protect healthcare workers, those around the sick and all of the employees obliged to work for avoid the collapse of society. And no factory capable of ensuring sufficient production in an emergency.

However, until 2018, the Honeywell plant in Plaintel (Côtes-d'Armor) had a production capacity of 20 million masks per month. But after 8 successive "social" plans , financed by public money, the factory had grown from 300 to 38 employees, before the American multinational ...



(en) [Spain] Against drugs as a tool to oppress young people By Libertarian Youths of Madrid By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sat Sep 26 06:13:28 GMT 2020

From schools to clubs, drug use is common among young people. The vast majority have tried alcohol or other common substances at some point and many do so frequently. It is no coincidence that they are at the center of many of our social interactions, often establishing themselves as indispensable for their correct development. This, given its alienating and destructive nature, generates countless problems both socially and individually, so it is important to know your role and fight them. ---- Given that what is important in this role is the effect that they all have on society, we do not enter into the classifications that the State makes between legal or illegal, nor those that created their means of communication between heavy and light. This only serves to justify the consumption of one against the other because it is more "safe" or "healthy", leaving aside the fact that neither is. This distinction also translates into an excuse to exercise even greater control, from special taxes that enrich the rulers to special police forces that, of course, operate mainly in working-class neighborhoods under greater repression. However, even though they are illegal, the State does not hesitate to use them when it suits them, as happened in the Basque Country with heroin or with the Black Panthers with crack. Both are examples of repressive agencies that use drugs ...

A new mass demonstration in the center of Thessaloniki took place on Monday afternoon on the occasion of the murder of the social activist Zak Costopoulos (Zackie Oh!) By furious fascists (see "shopkeepers") and cops in Omonia at noon. The march was attended by almost 1000 people (about 300 of them with the APO bloc) who three days after the massive demonstration for Pavlos Fyssas and just one after the release of the last 13 arrested by the 51 anti-fascists showed that the movement in city has both volume and pulse and endurance, to cope with the dirty war that the state has unleashed against its structures and people. The demonstration took place in front of the White Tower section, demonstrating the role of the police in both the murder of Jacques,

Many workers are being asked to work in unsafe environments. Many more will be asked to do so as they return to work over the coming days and weeks. ---- The No Safety, No Work campaign has been launched. This is a campaign to be led by workers trying to keep themselves and others safe at work in the time of Covid 19. We know that the working class cannot rely on employers or the government to keep us safe. ---- Tens of thousands of people have died in this pandemic, and even more are killed in the work place every year. None of these deaths were inevitable but were the results of the greed of the bosses and the rulers of our society. As more and more people are returning to work, the government has not passed a single law guaranteeing workers safety but has issued guidance to employers. This is not enough to keep us safe.

The campaign is supported by the following groups and organisations (in alphabetical order)

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Fri Sep 25 06:10:09 GMT 2020

SOLIDARITY IN AGAINST STATE REPRESSION ---- The SE BIO.ME as of February 12, 2013 is the only occupied self-managed factory in Greece. The workers of the Industrial Mining decided to defy the orders of the state and the capital and chose the path of the struggle, proceeding to occupy the factory. The main axes on which the project of BIO.ME was built was, is and will be the threefold self-management-self-management-self-organization. By producing natural and organic cleaning and hygiene products, they highlight a different form of organization of the production process by the workers themselves, which of course is not at all in the interests of the economic elites and the state policies of impoverishment of the class base.
In a period of general repression where the state hits the most promotional part of the struggle, namely the anarchists and their structures. He continues unabated, moving on to another movement where he shows us that his priority, which is none other than to protect capital at all costs, while suppressing every social and class struggle. The pandemic is not a phenomenon that belongs to the past, we see cases rise every day, but it is an opportunity for the state to pass criminal-type bills. ...
