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 finding is alarming. The damage to biodiversity continues to grow. And the speed of this collapse is accelerating. Let's take a brief look at some recent scientific studies. ---- Year after year, scientific data accumulate and all go in the same direction: biodiversity collapses on all lands and seas. First, there is the work of the Intergovernmental Science and Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), created in 2012 and whose sixth session was held from 17 to 24 March 2018 in Medellin (Colombia). ---- His reports point out, for example, that in Africa some 500 000 km2 of land are already degraded due to deforestation, unsustainable agriculture, overgrazing, mining activities, invasive species or global warming.

According to the reports of the Intergovernmental Science and Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, " Biodiversity and the contributions nature makes to people seem, for many, remote from our daily lives.[...]They are at the heart not only of our survival, but also of our cultures, our identities and our joie de vivre ". ---- The meaning of biodiversity is not necessarily understood by everyone. Let us first recall that biodiversity refers to the diversity of ecosystems - all plants, animals and micro-organisms that interact in the same geographical location -, animal and plant species and genes of individuals within the same species. ---- This extraordinary wealth of life forms on our planet is constantly evolving, renewing itself, adapting to changes in climate and physico-chemical soil data.

"Because all this goes beyond the simple issue of a permit, aiming at the core of the conscience of the political prisoner and his personal dignity. And for us this is our invisible red line. And because nothing has ever been given to us, and what is called rights are nothing more than the conquest of long and long-lasting struggles, I answer with what corresponds to the political prisoner. " ---- D. Koufontina ---- D. Koufodinas is in prison for 16 years for his participation in the revolutionary organization November 17, for which he has assumed political responsibility. For years his self-evident right to his regular licenses was deprived of a mechanism that laid down the declaration of repentance and the denial of the armed struggle as a prerequisite for him to offer.
