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) Britain, Nordic class struggle by afedscotland
Sat May 25 15:59:26 GMT 2013
The âNordic modelâ is the name given to the economic and social policies shared by Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland which stress welfare provision, high taxation, and a corporatist approach to industrial relations and governance. It has come very much into vogue in Scottish political culture as part of the Independence debate, and is said to provide a more egalitarian yet achievable example for what an independent Scotland could look like, or at least, what it could aim for. There is no doubt that relative to our current neoliberal status quo the Nordic countries - and there are important differences between them - have a higher quality of life and a smaller gap between rich and poor. However, the Nordic example has become to a large extent mythologized and, because it has so much significance to the political direction here, especially among the Left, it ...

(en) France, Courant Alternatif CA #230 - Grillo, an Italian Coluche? (fr) [machine translation]
Sat May 25 13:22:42 GMT 2013
It is understood, Beppe Grillo, considered the winner of the last Italian elections, is both a populist and a new Coluche [French comedian] ... or both at the same time. Such adjectives are perhaps not wrong, but repeated over and over again by almost all observers storefront, they become so much common places they deserve some attention a little. ---- Lets see some Italian specificities ---- Of all Western Europe Italy is the country where voter turnout was the highest in the decades that followed the end of World War II. This is probably a clichÃ to say that discusses "political" at all street corners and even in squares late into the night, the travelers of the same compartment that had never seen an hour earlier will start to "talk politics" to kill time, but it's still a reality if we stick to this policy that considers electoral contests like a sport, and god knows ( or do ...

(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #227 - Read Mahmoud Traoré, Bruno Le Dantec, Dem ak Xbarr "Go and tell" (fr) [machine translation]
Sat May 25 11:19:40 GMT 2013
Go and tell is the modern Odyssey Mahmoud Traoré, one of the thousands of young African men and women who take the road in the hope of a better life in Europe. ---- It starts in September 2002 in Dakar, leaving his job in a woodworking shop to follow his friend Bambo Sane. " You're here with empty hands and you are tired of too much hassle and wait for something, you know, will never come to you if you're not gonna get it with your feet. Then one day you shake your frame and you try your luck in telling you that if something goes wrong, there will be time to turn back.

(en) Anarkismo.net: Brazil - Fake parties and the politics of cynicism by Bruno Lima Rocha (pt) [machine translation]
Sat May 25 11:15:51 GMT 2013
The cynicism and political hypocrisy is the structuring of the game scenes built without ideological distinction between subtitles or programmatic ---- On Monday, May 20, the minister and current president of the Supreme, Joaquim Barbosa, said at an event held at a private university in Brasilia that "political parties are fake." As I have been saying here in this publication, we are at a time when the obvious is just talking transformer. Party politics in general and Congress in particular, are Genis contemporary democracy. Barbosa only reflects the collective perception of the lack of programmatic coherence, doctrinal principles and ideological fidelity. Lack discuss the consequences for such governance if there is such consistency. ---- Any political party system longevity sees loyalty in political organizations a dangerous way to polarize the positions. ...

There are seventy years, April 19, 1943, the eve of Passover, the last four of activists Jews and Jewish-are locked in the Warsaw ghetto, triggered the uprising. Foul rumor considering that " the Jews left in the camps are like sheep to the slaughter , "is part of this obvious bad faith, released by the anti-Semitic propaganda. Jews and Jews remained in Europe have found es trapped on the whole European territory, which has exercised the Nazi yoke for five years. [ 1 ] ---- The chances of escape were slim.

(en) Letter of anarchist Alexey Sutuga from prison to comrades in struggle
Fri May 24 19:07:55 GMT 2013
It is late, but I still want to congratulate all the comrades and friends with May Day and the Day of Liberation of the world from the Nazi threat in the memorable days of 1945. The symbolism of the holidays for me is still an important part of those ideas that I live for, although already the second year in a row I am unable to take part in their celebrations. But even in prison, they are life-affirming, as most of the people who surround me here could stand with me in the same column in freedom, shoulder to shoulder. ---- If we do not take into account the corrupted officials, prison is packed with representatives of the working class, who consist a broad international. This is nothing surprising, as the situation was the same at all times.
