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."

Defend KobanÃ! ---- The siege of KobanÃ continues, with the murderous cutthroats of Daâesh (a.k.a. ISIS) not relenting in their attempts to crush all resistance to their vicious and reactionary movement. The heroic women and men of the YPG-YPJ forces are putting up an implacable defence, despite being outnumbered and outgunned by Daâesh. The United States imperialists have supplied small quantities of weapons to KobanÃ (even if some of them have fallen into the hands of Daâesh!) and have staged some air strikes on Daâesh positions. Meanwhile, the increasingly authoritarian regime of Recep ErdoÄan in Turkey shows which side he is on by keeping the border sealed against assistance and reinforcements for KobanÃ. Now the US has announced it will send âreinforcementsâ from the peshmerga of the reactionary Kurdish Regional Government, quislings of ErdoÄan â with the ...

How to understand what is happening in Libya? The multiplicity of interests, and internal and external influences creates confusion that puts the country with fire and sword. The end of the dictatorship offered the opportunity to build a free and equal society. The uprising of the population in February 2011 would have been a revolutionary situation that is instead turned into threat back of a military dictatorship or Islamic. ---- The political situation in Libya is Kafkaesque. The shortest popular uprising in the history-10 days, to the day, 27 February 2011-du17 came the National Council of Self-proclaimed Transition. It will be supported by the Western coalition forces led by France. From March 17, the Security Council of the United Nations has decided on the establishment of an exclusion zone in the Libyan sky (resolution 1973). It also authorizes ...

Brazil and the social movements of the country were marked by the June days of 2013 Reductions in rates of public transport in several counties and advances the debate on urban mobility were notable and recognized worldwide. However, also as a result of the protests, many activists of Brazilian social movements are pag walk a high price for not giving up the fight for a better world. Political arrests and prosecutions meaningless became common. And not just in the Rio-São Paulo. In Joinville, only the past year or so, five militants respond to 21 lawsuits. ---- Here, the recent wave of criminalization began on 14 August last year. The date, social movements like Front Fight for Transportation and the MPL (Free Pass Movement) protested at a meeting of the City Council, the Harmony Society Lyra. A supposedly broken hinge resulted in a process without evidence to a ...

Founded in Brussels in March 2013 Collective Libertarian Alternative Brussels is one of the latest revolutionary organizations in Belgium. Libertarian Communist Organization, its members are present yet in the social struggles for several years. For the blog LA Brussels we interviewed one of the activists at the base of the creation of the collective. For us, it is up to the launch of such an organization, marking the moments in the history of collective and future projects. ---- Why launch a collective Libertarian Alternative? ---- First, let me say that this is a collective experience, a meeting between activists and libertarian anarcho-syndicalists. We struggle with where we are as union activists, workers, Artists, students, women, the unemployed, Artists, insecure, etc. both against capitalism, exploitation and destruction of social gains as well as ...

Sat Oct 25 10:52:46 GMT 2014
The Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (CAB) hereby issue a notice of repudiation of slander which has been suffering during this election period by certain sectors and, recently, a collective of alternative media. These come in a cowardly way implying or stating flatly that members of our current (specific) have supported the critical vote in the Dilma government, with the clear intention of attacking our Coordination. ---- The position of the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (CAB), which gathers nine anarchist organizations that chain, scattered in various parts of the country, has always been clear in this regard: "Either you vote us up. Or if you struggle with low", ie, the defense of the null vote and electoral abstention. Beyond the cyclical analysis, in which we assessed the specificities of two proposals for management of Brazilian capitalism, linked to our ...
(en) WSM, Irish Anarchist Review Issue 10
Fri Oct 24 17:13:19 GMT 2014
Welcome to the tenth instalment of the Irish Anarchist Review, published for the 2014 London Anarchist Bookfair. ---- Five years ago, the Irish Anarchist Review replaced Red and Black Revolution as the magazine of the Workers Solidarity Movement. It’s mission was to fill a vacuum in Irish radical circles, to be a publication that raised questions and provoked debate, rather than laying out blueprints for success, as had been the norm in the more theoretical work of the left. It was established at a time where a fightback was believed to be imminent, when the expectation was that as the (economic) beatings continued, morale would improve. ---- The intervening years produced a series of false starts. The big ICTU demonstrations in the infancy of the crisis proved to be safety valves for the expulsion of steam from the rank and file, and were tightly controlled by ...

Q: Some Kurdish women from the PKK came to Barcelona last month. One of them recognized herself as an anarchist. She was from Germany and she wanted to learn more about anarchist history here in Spain. Do you think there are anarchists in the ranks of PKK? Do you have contacts with them? Would it be possible to have a left libertarian current inside this hierarchical movement? ---- Yes. Inside the PKK and PYD there are men and women with anarchist ideas and thought. Some of these people have reached that through their own struggles and experiences; the others have become anarchist and libertarian under the influence of Abdullah Öcalan. They have realized that anarchism is the most radical answer to the capitalist system. We believe that those who have embraced the anarchist idea under the influence of Öcalan may not be as solid as the people who reached the same ideas ...

When you want to win a fight, you have to decide to break with the "apolitical", which is usually marinated in the most tepid conformity. This is the current challenge in the mobilization of Higher Education and Research against restructuring, insecurity and suffering at work. ---- In June, the National Committee of CNRS [ 1 ] appealed denouncing the policy choices of the government and proposing an alternative budget. The Inter supported the initiative but struggled so far to build a real mobilization. A window opened this summer with the pulse of the collective Sciences on. ---- First Montpellier committee called for the organization of markets converging on Paris on October 17 about three slogans: ---- the creation of statutory posts; ---- recurrent funding (ie not dependent on calls for proposals) labs and facs; ---- doctorate in recognition of ...
