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."

Mon May 22 16:36:54 GMT 2017

Despite the saturation of French territory in this area, eight new motorway projects are under construction, mainly motivated by the economic development they will create. But this argument is contradicted by the facts. ---- Whatever their local objectives and forms, the projects in question are based on an argument which is, in fact, only a belief: who says great works and " mobility " means growth, job creation, economic dynamism. ---- This blind faith, and the determination of the elected officials to tarry everything that is presented, remain in contempt of scientific knowledge showing that these long awaited results are not necessarily at the rendezvous. ---- And not only is the argument fallacious, but it masks the negative impacts of these projects on certain territories, which will undergo the work without being serviced by the highway. ...

It rises from the east of Mount Erymanthos 2.224m altitude and flows into the Gulf of Patras. The basin is the largest in western Achaia. In its original path is narrow, deep and very brash.

In the traditional METU Revolution March we took our place with a banner this year "Revolution or our Souls or Somewhere". We continue with our slogans such as "Revolt Revolution Anarchy", "Revolution Is Inevitable, Not Satisfied or We Are Nowhere!", "What Master Is Slave, We Are Moving!", "Humanity, Hayvana, Freedom to Earth!" We tried to raise the voice of Semih Özakça and Nuriye Gülmen's hunger strike battle. At the same time, our friend Kazim Kizil, who was arrested in Izmir in the past days, was free of our foreign currency accents and slogans. We ended our walk by hanging our banner on the stadium of revolution. ---- Anarchist Tahayyule Autonomy ---- https://www.facebook.com/anarsist.tahayyul

(en) anarkio.net: A call from Venezuela to the anarchists of Latin America and the world: Solidarity is much more than a written word. (ca, pt)
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon May 22 05:41:52 GMT 2017

We address all the expressions of the libertarian movement, particularly those of this continent, not only to draw their attention to the situation we are living in Venezuela since April 2017, but by what we understand as urgency for the international anarchism expresses more emphatically on these dramatic circumstances, with positions and actions consistent with what has been the preaching and practice of the anti-hierarchic (actual word used here is "Ácrata".^N.delT.) ideal in its historical walk. ---- It is deplorable that, while on the one hand the Chavista government -today headed by Maduro- together with its sounding boards from the outside and, on the other, the opponents from the right and the social-democracy, are in disgusting campaigns for selling to world opinion their equally biased visions and charged with interests of power, many anarchist voices outside ...

The worst that can happen to you in chains is to get used to. Already, for 7 years, periodically state capital "bite" and a new song from the past into the world of work for survival. It resembles natural phenomenon every 1.5 years, after an "agonizing" period of supposed negotiations Greek state with the patrons, the EU and the IMF, to the announced new cuts in wages and pensions, lost new workers rights, We underestimated our class more and more. Not even the phraseology does not change from PASOK and ND ND in SYRIZA. ---- But it is not a natural phenomenon. It is a political phenomenon produced by the racing demobilization of the oppressed society. And that means one thing: you will still depreciate more. Today's action is the precursor to the next which is the precursor of the next one. Till chapter to achieve full sovereignty over every aspect of our lives. ...

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #272 - Turkey: The dictatorship constitutionalized to forceps (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Sun May 21 11:54:26 GMT 2017

Since 2014, Erdogan has sought by all means to impose a constitutional revision to remain indefinitely at the head of the State and to grant full powers. The 16 April referendum, supposed to be a step towards popular dedication, will have had the opposite effect: to reveal the growing isolation of a man who has fled to the dictatorship. Back on three chaotic years. ---- At the head of the country since 2002, Erdogan and his party, the AKP, had already been illustrated by their ultra-liberal and reactionary policies as well as by their authoritarianism, especially during the Gezi protest in 2013. ---- A premeditated chaos ---- In 2014, seeing the end of his mandate approach and not hoping to run for a fourth, it is the Constitution itself (established in 1982 following the 1980 military coup) that Eddyan aims to tackle . Sure of his popularity, persuaded to be the " modern ...

Sun May 21 08:04:37 GMT 2017

"All I want for Mother's Day is that revolutionary, anarchist-feminism." ---- Despite the commercialized version of flowers, cards and brunches celebrated today, Mother's Day has deeply political roots. Abolitionist and feminist Julia Ward Howe wrote the original "Mother's Day Proclamation" in 1870 calling for the eradication of war and later campaigned for recognition of a "Mother's Day for Peace" in 1907 - several years before President Woodrow Wilson declared it an official holiday in 1914. ---- "...Arise, all women who have hearts, whether your baptism be that of water or of tears! Say firmly: "We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies, our husbands shall not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause. ---- Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and ...

Below is a list of what London AF has been up to recently and what we are planning for the future ---- We have organised several mass distributions of the AF newssheet Resistance, including at Bethnal Green and Whitechapel ---- We attended the May Day event in London and had a successful literature stall at the beginning and the end of the march. We helped organise the libertarian bloc on the march and marched with our superb London AF banner with the slogan Make London the Rebel City. ---- Talking of which, the new issue of Rebel City is now out and was distributed widely on the May Day event. Up to this issue it was the newssheet of London AF but at a meeting with other class struggle anarchists we decided to throw it open to others, and the latest issue contains articles by members of Haringey Solidarity, the Industrial Workers of the World, Radical Assembly etc. We hope ...
