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) wsm.ie: Dublin Pride 2016 Reflections - Queer liberation, not rainbow capitalism by Ferdia O'Brien
Sat Jul 23 14:22:42 GMT 2016
I had mixed feelings attending Pride, but mostly felt bewildered and pissed off. I was looking forward to this year's Pride for quite some time. It was my second ever Pride, and I came to march with the Radical Left Bloc, one of two radical blocs attending, which was organised by others. Like last year, I was shocked – somehow again – by the level of corporate infestation and toothlessness. ---- Here is an important question for everyone: what's the point of Pride? From being there, I know clearly that people's answers to this question vary hugely. ---- For me Pride is about a few things. We are celebrating and remembering the Stonewall riots of 1969 in New York, where queer people – notably trans women of colour - decided enough was bloody enough and fought back against police repression. But we aren't celebrating in the sense of 'happy birthday to you', or ...
(en) MEDIA, Masked anarchists clash with police in march on Boris Johnson's home - SEBASTIAN MANN

Disorder: Protesters set off smoke bombs outside the Foreign Secretary's home Rex
A masked mob of anarchists clashed with police as they swarmed on Boris Johnson's home during a protest. ---- Dozens of protesters set off smoke bombs and scuffled with officers guarding the new Foreign Secretary's Islington house during the disorder. ---- Anarchist group Class War, which organised the protest, had told supporters to bring "pitchforks, flaming torches and incandescent anger" in a post promoting the event on its website. ---- It read: "Boris, our senior diplomat, [is] the man whole stole our future. Now we really are all f*****. ---- "Do we just grin and bear it, or do we grin and fight back back?" ---- Clashes: Masked anarchists met in Islington for the march on Boris Johnson's home on Friday evening (Rex) ...

This morning the sirens of the factories have called the people to take to the streets to play the skin in defense of their dignity. OK, not the military have left the barracks. But apart from that, the working class grievances that arm of reasons to move forward with a new social revolution still more present than ever. ---- The labor exploitation in the hands of landlords is a reality as dire as it was then. Our lives are subjugated and the need to sell mortgaged to the heirs of the lineages of profiteers who have nurtured for generations of our sweat, our blood and our tears. Shit wages, conditions and expectations fucking shit. ---- In fact, we have been worse. At least before the factories producing useful objects; Now, most jobs are not intended to meet the material needs of the people, but they are tasks superfluous basically serve to hide us that technological advances ...

Strong divorced people. They decided that some few will be over and decide on behalf of all and many will be below and should make that their say on top. They divided the world into (capitalist) center must remain possible and (capitalist) region used to strengthen even further the center. ---- While states and strong build a world-prison for all from the bottom, migrants, refugees and ntopious.Oi powerful West, to become even stronger, with wars they do with their allies continue to destroy the societies in Middle East and to exploit the countries and the people of North Africa. ---- Make war on capitalism's periphery to: steal their natural resources existing there and belonging to local populations (oil, precious stones, etc.), destroy societies and their economies so that they can then impose their own economy, control areas have significance for them, whether ...
(en) wsm.ie: Thoughts on Squatting & Social Centers by Cormac Caulfield
Sat Jul 23 13:24:20 GMT 2016
Over the previous year myself and a small number of comrades have been involved in housing activism in Dublin, specifically in relation using squatting or using occupation as a tactic. This is meant to be a short piece on some of the lessons learnt to inform activists who wish to get involved in this sort activity. ---- At the start of our career as squatter/housing activists over a year ago occupying buildings seemed like the primary logical option available to us. Not only was it an available and sensible form of direct action, which informed by our Social Anarchist politics was invariable the best and most effective tactic to use, it was also an easy way to alleviate the housing crisis. ---- It goes without saying that physical spaces and building counter power institutions(along with organisations) are necessary for the creation of a movement which can challenge the ...
(en) afed.cz: Another noise Pankrac: A brief report of further actions before the remand prison in support of anarchists Martin Ignacák. [machine translation]
Fri Jul 22 06:53:00 GMT 2016
Because Martina our "rule of law" still holds in custody in Pankrác, continue to go after him on the visit. Last time we stopped in front of bass in the evening on Saturday 16th July when we hastily gathered about fifteen. Armed with several sophisticated tools for publishing loud noises we moved to the usual place against the wall of the prison. ---- Chanting slogans like "Our weapon is solidarity" and "Freedom to political prisoners" punctuated wild din. Martin hears us, it was clear, but we insure firing of several powerful firecrackers. After about five minutes we walked away, accompanied by a somewhat bemused glances of two boys in blue who our performances uneasily watched from the open door of the prison. ---- On the way from the Pankrac several people stopped still at the Congress Centre, where the footbridge over the main road embellished banner reading ...
(en) alternative libertaire: Block everything becomes vital by AL Brussels (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Fri Jul 22 06:52:54 GMT 2016
First, we must understand that we consider that no further significant improvement of our existence can be expected within the capitalist framework and its political system, parliamentary democracy. Europe knows almost continuously for 40 years an economic and social crisis. This structural crisis can not be resolved by a political will that would accept the framework of this system: state, market economy and private property. ---- We believe this impossibility explains the failures of Syriza, Podemos and the renunciation of all initiatives explicitly or not wanting to pose as new "radical left". Most of these initiatives assume that the crisis of capitalism comes from the poor distribution of wealth and in rebalancing the balance could both stimulate the economy and allow people to live better. We oppose this belief possibility of alternative crisis management. This is a ...
(en) Kurdish Movement Releases Statement on Turkey Coup Attempt
Fri Jul 22 06:52:33 GMT 2016
The umbrella organisation of the Kurdish movement, the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council Co-Presidency, has released a statement about last night's coup attempt in Turkey. ---- The statement said; “There has been a coup attempt by persons whose identity and purpose is yet not clear. This attempt comes just before the military council meeting, where Recep Tayyip Erdogan was reportedly going to assign generals close to himself to the army's top tier. Another striking dimension of the coup attempt is that it comes at a time when discussions about the fascist AKP government's foreign policy, were taking place.” ---- Coup attempt is proof of lack of democracy ---- The statement by KCK reads; “No matter within which internal and external political factors and focuses, and for what reasons a power struggle is waged, this case is not a matter of defending or ...
(en) wsm.ie: After Nice attack - ISIS and Pegida want a clash of civilisations - lets resist their project
Fri Jul 22 06:52:27 GMT 2016
At least 84 dead in Nice as a truck is deliberately driven through the huge crowds marking the anniversary of the French Revolution. The driver who was shot be police after plowing through the crowd for 1.2km is reported to be a French citizen of Tunisian descent. The method of attack which is very similar to one advocated in the ISIS magazine strongly suggests an ISIS /Daesh attack. ---- The massive ISIS bombings in Baghdad that killed nearly 300 this month on 3rd July followed the ISIS defeat in Fallujah and this attack comes on the eve of their defeat in Manbij. There the Kurdish YPG as part of the SDF are engaged in street fighting in the city center and the next stage of their offensive should cut ISiS off from its resupply routes into Turkey. This is probably why I'm the Turkish state has been making noises about normalizing relations with the Assad regime, their next ...
(en) anarkismo.net: Erdogan policies have played a major role in the Region by Zaher Baher
Fri Jul 22 06:52:19 GMT 2016
This article covers the policy of Erdogan and his political party (AKP) in Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Rojava and Iraqi Kurdistan. The article shows the reasons as to why Erdogan supports Isis, the reason for invading Mosul and why Kobane has been chosen to be invaded but not Jazeera? The article also states the success of Erdogan polices during the war in the region since 2013 and predicting his peace policy in the future can be on the expenses of Rojava's Cantons. ---- Erdogan policies have played a major role in the Region ---- By Zaher Baher ---- July 2016 ---- In this article I will try to show how the regional policies, executed by Erdogan and his AKP (Adalet ve Kalk?nma Partisi – Justice and Development Party) in respect of Rojava, Bakur and Iraqui Kurdistan, meet the goals of the Turkey’s president. ...
