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."

Sat May 15 07:00:47 GMT 2021
This Thursday, May 6, a massacre befell the community of Jacarezinho, in Rio de Janeiro, with at least 25 people killed. The authorship is of the Civil Police, in what is considered the most lethal police action in the history of the state. Witnesses point to various indications of summary executions, of people who were already surrendered and offered no resistance. ---- The case opens up state terrorism that victimizes the poor and black people in Rio de Janeiro and in communities across the country. Last year, 5,660 people were murdered by police in Brazil. In the state of Rio de Janeiro, 25% of violent deaths in 2020 had police authorship. Disguised as a war on drugs, the genocidal policy is a war on the poor, which victimizes black and peripheral youth, and keeps the population ...
(en) Czech, Demonstration - Solidarity with protesters in Myanmar Wednesday, June 2 by Kolektiv 115, Anarchist Federation and Food Not Bombs Zizkov
Sat May 15 07:00:24 GMT 2021
Myanmar (Burma) is a country bordering Bangladesh, India, China, Laos and Thailand, where a military coup led by General Min Aun Hlain took place on February 1 this year. The coup overthrew the elected government of the National League for Democracy (NLD), which took power in the 2011 elections. Myanmar has long been under a military dictatorship, and only in the last decade has the situation changed, although systematic ethnic and religious discrimination has continued. The return of the military junta provoked violent protests from the population, mass strikes and street protests. These are brutally suppressed, which has claimed hundreds of lives.

We are a class struggle anarchist collective, organised by and for working class people. As anarchists we are opposed to all states and institutions, and all attitudes and ideologies that stand in the way of equality and the right of all people everywhere to control their own lives and environment. The working class has no country. ---- The class struggle is world wide and recognises no artificial boundaries. The Armies and Police of all states do not exist to protect the workers of those states, they exist only as the repressive arm of the ruling class. ---- Our Aim ---- Our aim is to abolish world wide, the state system, governments, capitalism and the wage slavery in all its forms and replace them with a free classless society based on self-managed communities and ...

On Monday, May 10, at 5.30 pm in STHE we call for the creation of an open assembly for the organization of counter-information excursions and actions against the forthcoming unemployment bill. ---- A bill, which after 10 years of capitalist crisis, the greatest burdens of which were lifted on the backs of the working class and the lower social strata with reductions in wages and pensions, increases in retirement limits, increase in the cost of living, introduction of flexible working relationships, privatizations and mass unemployment comes to: ---- Essentially abolish the 8 o'clock leaving the door open for 10 hours of work, to more than double and formalize the unpaid overtime and the Sunday work for more sectors.

(en) France, UCL - Islamophobic attacks: the first consequences of the separatism law (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]
Sat May 15 06:56:25 GMT 2021
As the "separatism" law comes out of the Senate heavily amended by the right, a series of racist acts have taken place this week in various cities, sounding like an omen of the direct effects of this law. ---- The last few days have been marked by a wave of Islamophobic acts: threat of an attack in Mans, tags of the Islamic cultural center of Rennes, fire of the mosque of Nantes. The Rennes tags bear the mark of the far right, thus continuing a wave of fascist attacks after the attack on the Black Plume in Lyon and the intrusion of Action française into the regional council. from Occitanie. The events of Le Mans and Nantes are presented in the media as the work of isolated or even unbalanced people, illustrating once again the fact that the responsibility attributed to the ...

In recent days, the state of Israel has again launched a brutal crackdown on Palestinians in East Jerusalem. In particular, Israeli occupation forces attempted to forcibly evict 200 Palestinian families in the Sheikh Zarah suburb of Jerusalem, using the pre-existing title deeds as a pretext for 1967. The operation was accompanied by state terrorism and settlers, where they unleashed pogroms and expelled Palestinians from their homes. ---- This effort to oust the Palestinian people continues and escalates, with Israeli forces entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday 7/5 and attacking hundreds of people, injuring dozens of people. While in the next few days, the suppressive violence continued with the police to hit protesters, throwing plastic spheres, chemicals and glow grenades, ...
(en) i-f-a.org: Death of Azerbaijani anarchist Bayram Mammadov at age 26 - what happened in Istanbul?
Sat May 15 06:51:14 GMT 2021
Bayram Mammadov 1995-2021. We report the sad news of the death of an anarchist and conscientious objector comrade Bayram Mammadov at the age of 26 years in Istanbul at the start of May 2021 after being missing for 2 days, His death was initially reported as 4th or 5th May by some sites but it appears he was found dead on 2nd May, although friends were not able to find his body in the hands of the authorities until later.

After another day it turned out his body was in the morgue.
Bayram Mammadov was a young Azerbaijani activist who was one of two (along with ...

Sat May 15 06:51:08 GMT 2021
On Saturday the 1st of May, a small but determined demonstration made its way through the centre of The Hague. Around 30 people participated in the unannounced anarchist 1st of May demonstration with the slogan "we don't want to be destroyed by capitalism, so capitalism will have to be destroyed by us". ---- The demonstration started in the popular neighbourhood Kortenbos in the middle of the city. This part of the city, with its small streets, parks and social housing served well as the starting point for the demo. While slogans were being shouted and flyers handed out to people passing by or watching from their houses, the group of anarchists made their way through the streets.

Sat May 15 06:47:04 GMT 2021
In March, the entertainment workers occupied theaters that had been closed for twelve months to draw attention to their plight and claim their right to exist. The reopening of the rooms, desired by the management, remains under debate. ---- The very symbolic Odeon theater - which was covered with red and black flags in May 68 - was once again occupied! From March 4, a blossoming of occupations followed, with more than 60 cultural places taken over by culture workers and their supporters. ---- The demands are made by the CGT-Spectacle, SUD-Culture et Médias and the Coordination of intermittent and precarious workers (CIP), a group whose name refers to the social movement of 2003.
