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.
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."

But let's look at the facts: with the end of World War II, colonial rule entered a phase of definitive liquidation; in particular, the protectorate held by Great Britain and France over countries inhabited by Arab populations and those of the Middle East ceases, even if the phenomenon is more general and also affects Asia, while for Africa we will have to wait until the 1960s . However, the process is slow and will end with difficulty. ---- The terrorist actions carried out by Zionist terrorist organizations, the civil war situation and the growing clashes between Arabs and Jewish migrants led England to announce the renunciation of the mandate and so on 15 May 1947 the UN was ...

Tue Nov 28 07:29:18 GMT 2023
"It makes us laugh when people tell us about great French gastronomy" ---- We met M. and C., workers in an artisanal bakery. These meetings gave rise to three interviews on the bakery today, from the point of view of its workers. In the previous issue, M. addressed discrimination, baking struggles and alternative baking. Here, this time with C., the interview will be devoted to the training of bakers, unionism, hazing and undocumented immigrants. ---- How long have you worked in a bakery?
The first time I set foot in a bakery to work was in 2007, at the age of ...

Tue Nov 28 07:28:53 GMT 2023
On November 12, the Anti-Fascist Social Forums (FSA) will be held in Villeurbanne, a day of debates and conferences to recall the importance of the fight against an extreme right which is increasingly increasing its influence and its violence. Among its targets, racialized people, LGBTI people and left-wing activists, including those from UCL. ---- Lyon, the "capital of Gaul", is best known today for being the "capital of the fascists". It is therefore near this city, in Villeurbanne, that the Antifascist Social Forums will take place on Sunday, November 12, at the initiative of the collective "Fermons les premises fascistes". This collective, of which UCL is a stakeholder, is fighting for the closure ...

"The international media and politicians from various political camps all have diverse and varied positions regarding the current war between the State of Israel and the Gaza Strip (proto-state or state, in practice, it is little of difference). ---- Let's be clear! If these are conflicts between states, then that is not our problem. If states could all self-destruct, that would be a very good thing. Except that that's never what it's about: wars between states are above all a project with and against populations. It is also the war of the capitalists with and against the workers. They are using us against us. Our ignorance is their strength. ...
(en) France, UCL press release: Earth Uprisings: a victory but an alert for public freedoms (ca, de, fr, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]
Tue Nov 28 07:28:32 GMT 2023
The decision has been made: you cannot dissolve an uprising. The cancellation of the decree dissolving the Earth Uprisings by the Council of State is a victory for the environmental movement, and for the entire social movement! However, this victory is also a wake-up call. ---- On June 21, Gérald Darmanin, continuing the repression of the Sainte-Soline demonstration against the mega-basins, proclaimed the dissolution of the Earth Uprisings. After several months of legal battle, the Council of State finally overturned the government's decision. Justice ruled that dissolution could not be justified in the case of the Earth Uprisings, as the collective was not responsible for the violence that took place ...

Towards Disability Pride and beyond... all ableism_ The event was born in Boston in 1990 to claim the pride of people with disabilities, in the footsteps of the LGBTQIA+ movement, against all discrimination and spread, landing in Sicily in 2015 with Carmelo Comisi in Ragusa and province, then in Palermo, on a permanent basis, at the Cantieri Culturali della Zisa in 2016, to then parade in Naples in 2017 and in the center of Rome until 2021 with various international twinnings with New York and Brighton and with Dakar, the Senegal project he left from Genoa. The Disability Pride Network, the informal network that coordinates the movement, has thus decided to spread across the ...
(en) Italy, UCADI #178 I-5 - Anarchist communists, the Jewish and Palestinian questions I. - The role of "Jewish pan-syndicalism" in the construction of the State (ca, de, fr, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]
Mon Nov 27 07:08:22 GMT 2023
The peculiarities of Jewish trade unionism that developed in Palestine starting from 1910, as a forerunner of the non-existent State of Israel, are therefore identifiable in a sort of pan-syndicalism with an ethnic-confessional and identity basis, the result of the self-organisation of the class of workers and peasants, based on the principles of solidarity, on the antagonistic culture, on the political capacity of the subordinate classes. This social formation constituted the founding basis of a social structure, the founding nucleus of the government infrastructure which gradually evolved, merging with the liberal and bourgeois vision of society, dominated by exploitation and ...

Mon Nov 27 07:08:14 GMT 2023
The political and military reaction of the Israeli state following the appalling attack of October 7 perpetrated by Hamas also sparked a wave of mobilization in favor of the Palestinian people, deprived of the right to live on Palestinian territory since over 70 years old. In France, according to "jurisprudence" established under Hollande, the expression of support for the Palestinian cause is criminalized and demonstrations quite simply prohibited. ---- The attack of October 7 coordinated by Hamas caused fear, the massacre of more than a thousand civilians revolts us and we deplore them. Let us say it very clearly, Hamas is a nationalist and religious movement about which we have no ...

Mon Nov 27 07:08:08 GMT 2023
Following a proposal from the publishing scheme from Chile "Ediciones Pensamiento y Batalla" (Thought and Battle Editions) we granted an interview answering 8 questions posed by the comrades, with the aim of including them in a book to be published regarding anarchism in GREECE. The interview was conducted in English and will be translated into Spanish for publication by Ediciones Pensamiento y Batalla. ---- Here is the Greek translation ---- 1) Could you briefly describe what the neighborhoods in western Athens are like where you intervene politically?

We watch with horror the ongoing massive bombardment of millions of people trapped in the Gaza Strip. ---- We consider it necessary to remind that their lives also matter. That we must not forget them. That they too are (equally) valuable human beings who must be defended when they are being killed. That genocide or ethnic cleansing are terrible crimes that cannot be justified by anything, not even the terrorist attacks of Hamas, just as they cannot be justified by the daily crimes of Israeli apartheid.
We continue to watch with greater dismay the distorted one-sided image presented by the media and personalities in Slovakia. The perspective ...
