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."
(en) Canada, Collectif Emma Goldman - [Cryptocurrencies] Who benefits from bitcoin? (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]
Tue Sep 28 07:34:30 GMT 2021
Money is a central issue in economics, and therefore in politics. In recent years, there has been increasing talk of digital currencies. The emergence of the bitcoin cryptocurrency a little over ten years ago has sparked the interest of many people and institutions, including the central banks of major economic powers. It is therefore time to take a closer look. ---- Text from the Libertarian Communist Union website. Link to the original, here . ---- To reflect on the issue of digital currencies, let's start by realizing that we are in fact talking about a digital transaction system, not to be confused with the currency itself: a digital euro would always be a euro, would be governed by the same rules. (creation, destruction, storage, etc.) imposed by the European Central Bank. ...

The expansion of Covid 19 and its new strains has been wreaking havoc on our continent. Thousands of deaths per day, especially from the popular classes. Either in those countries like Brazil where a genocide takes place due to the inaction of the State and the Bolsonaro government, or those more liberal, there are no effective measures in health care, but much less in terms of social needs. Hunger, unemployment, precariousness, have increased with this unfolding economic-health crisis. Everything seems to indicate that the situation will get worse and that we will once again be the ones from below who will pay for the broken dishes of the party from above.

Companions from Afghanistan and Iran attending the Solidarity With Migrants Assembly on the situation in Afghanistan. ---- Imperialism kills more people every day than any pandemic ---- Since World War I, colonial European states and the United States have launched a relentless campaign of criminal imperialist intervention in West Asia. ---- From the military attacks, the occupations, the coups, the famines, the sanctions, the economic pressures and the political interventions for the establishment of submissive puppet governments we can conclude that the people of this region have not experienced peace for over a century. The imperialist countries have drawn borders and established nation-states such as the criminal occupying state of Israel. They constructed ...

In recent years, and especially during the pandemic period, the state has been trying to carry out a complete restructuring in the field of education. With a stack of bills passed recently, the state and capital are launching an unprecedented attack on students and pupils, trying to make education a privilege for the few and the elite, degrade the public character of universities and turn them into spaces. where nothing other than the sterile academic process will take place. The law that abolishes asylum, the law that provides for the establishment of university police, the expulsion of students, the upgrading of disciplinary penalties, the installation of cameras and controlled entry to universities,
(en) Greece, protaanka: Actions of solidarity with the anarchist D. Hadjivassiliadis[machine translation]
Tue Sep 28 07:29:37 GMT 2021
The capture of fighters who have stood with an irresistible revolutionary spirit against the enemy can not leave us indifferent. One such fighter is the anarchist Dimitris Hadjivassiliadis. He did not capitulate, he did not repent, he did not surrender to his persecutors. He continued the fight by taking responsibility in marginal conditions. He defied the personal cost, the fear of which has bent many who are not entitled to the office of "fighter". His imprisonment is a negative development that fills us with anger. ---- We recognize the capture of the comrade as a station of his racing path and not a static quagmire. We are confident that he will emerge from this ordeal stronger and stronger than ever, continuing to live "in the radical embodiment of historical myths." We are ...
(en) New ACG Podcast: Anarchist Communism Vs Big Tent Anarchism
Tue Sep 28 07:16:10 GMT 2021
From our recent London Anti-University meeting, ACG speakers look at the tradition of anarchist communism and explore its distinctness from other anarchist currents. ---- The speakers discuss a range of questions such as the role of organisation, insurrectionism, class analysis, freedom and collective responsibility, attitudes towards Labour and support for national liberation. They address these questions by looking at specific contexts, from the Russian Revolution to today's pandemic, and how we can best build an effective revolutionary anarchist movement. ---- You can hear it from our At the Café podcast page or via a range of platforms at Anchor FM

The Haitian Revolution was not a feminist any more than the French Revolution. Certainly, it released a collective feminine protest since, after the abolition of slavery, on certain plantations, women farmers fought against inequality of remuneration. But for the rest, even if the enslaved women engaged en masse in the insurrection of 1791, then in the popular resistance in 1802, they had only exceptionally access to military ranks and civil responsibilities. ---- Women took part en masse in the uprising of 1791, then in the popular resistance in 1802, but they remained, for the most part, anonymous. ---- Agostino Brunias, Women of Color with their Children and Servants in a Landscape (1764-1796).

(en) [Greece] Open Assembly of Anarchists of Patras | "We opened the way with struggle, destroying and creating" By ANA (pt)[machine translation]
Mon Sep 27 05:52:55 GMT 2021
We understand the anarchist struggle as a multifaceted process against the capitalist world, what it creates and what it reproduces. Against all authoritarian, military, hierarchical logic, we propose companionship and solidarity, because the collectivities we build here and now, communities of struggle, communication, self-education, coexistence are the leaven of our future communities, of the visions we want to see realized. We are against the State and capital, against nationalism, patriotism, sexism, fascism, racism, homophobia, against everything that speaks the language of power and proposes the rottenness of capitalism. And all these are key issues of our daily struggle, of our daily attitude, they happen within us individually and collectively at the same time. ...

Anarchist Federation motion passed at the 79th congress in Merlieux, August 22, 2021 ---- The social climate is one of unrest: social crisis, health crisis, economic crisis... ---- Riding on the wave of social unrest, the State takes the opportunity to reinforce its security and repression apparatus in order to satisfy an increasingly conservative electorate. ---- With the movement of theGilets Jaunes[Yellow Jackets], the forces of the Macronian order have a free course to repress the manifestations with virulence, resulting in a large number of mutilated people. Since the beginning of the protests, the interior ministers have, one after the other, defended the actions of the repressive forces.

Mon Sep 27 05:49:37 GMT 2021
The following report was sent to us about the police operation on the Möllerbrücke in the night from Friday to Saturday: ---- On Saturday evening around one o'clock, our heroes in uniform had to do everything they can to protect law and order in Dortmund. This time the crime scene was the Möllerbrücke in Dortmund, where about 150 wanted to end their well-deserved Friday evening. It started when two firecrackers were detonated on the bridge. The heroic police had to rush up for the first time to ensure safety. After the cops had expertly calculated the potential risk by driving a patrol car and two tubs slowly past ten times, a first attempt at contact was made. This was stopped at short notice after a bottle flew near the cops. It was evacuated quickly and the reverse gear ...
