A-INFOS-ORG

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.

A-INFOS VISION

The A-Infos Project is coordinated by an international collective of revolutionary anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist activists, involved with class struggle and who regard it as a total social struggle.

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."

While entering the election process, anarchists from different cities started a campaign around the slogan "Can't be solved at the ballot box". In the text shared from its social media accounts, it was emphasized that while the AKP is doing its best to prevent social reaction with its policies of repression and violence, the so-called opposition is feeding a climate of fear with the fallacy of "beneficial to the government". In the text, in which it was stated that the candidates who entered the elections would ask people to vote with threats, not with promises, it was said, "Our problems will not be solved by voting for one of the candidates who are basically no different from each other." ---- "We, as those who are getting poorer, unable to make a living, unable to shelter, and who ...

For years, one of the Rassemblement National's main seemingly normalization efforts has focused on covering up its anti-Semitism. However, it remains at the heart of the far-right worldview, in particular by fueling conspiracy. ---- "De-demonization is only about anti-Semitism.[...]It is anti-Semitism that prevents people from voting for us. There is only that... From the moment you break this ideological lock, you release the rest.»[1]---- In 2014, Louis Aliot, then vice-president of the FN, put at the heart of his de-demonization strategy the end of the far-right party's association with anti-Semitism. On October 13, the same, who became RN mayor of Perpignan, decorated his city's medal Beate and Serge Klarsfeld, Nazi hunters in the post-war period. ...

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Fri Feb 03 08:21:33 GMT 2023

Today in France, women receive a retirement pension that is 40% lower than that of men. The cause? Women are often confined to less well-paid, more precarious salaried work and choppy careers. The reform project will worsen these inequalities, but all together, working women can win. ---- Double day - half-retirement ---- If women receive retirement pensions almost half those of men, this is primarily due to pay inequalities: in 2022 again, the average salary of women is lower by 22%). But who says low wages, says low contributions, then low pensions. ---- In addition to being paid less, women are more forced into choppy careers because they do most of the domestic work. It's a double working day: at work and at home. This makes our careers more precarious: it is mostly ...

For the Emma Goldman Anarchist Collective (CEG), 2022 has been a busy year. Indeed, the collective has carried out various initiatives that have had an impact both in Saguenay on the Nitassinan, in Quebec and even more widely in the Francophonie. These projects took the form of a book, brochures, audio or video recordings, solidarity actions related to various current issues. For example: war and imperialism, the crisis of the health system, the high cost of living, solidarity with evicted squatters and squatters in Chicoutimi, mutual aid with the inhabitants of the neighborhood, environmental and decolonial struggles, etc

Enough of colonial aggression ---- On 1 and 28 December 2022, with two decree-laws of dubious constitutionality and uncertain compatibility with European standards - but which the para-fascist-led Parliament will not fail to convert - the Meloni government saved the ISAB of Priolo and the other factories of death in the Melilli-Priolo-Augusta area, saving them from the closure and seizure procedure that the Syracusan Judiciary had just initiated after more than a decade of complaints and delaying tactics. The solution found is the worst that could be imagined. ---- The first decree, which entered into force on 6 December last, following the application of the European embargo on Russian hydrocarbons, in fact provides for the commissioning of the plant by the State which, on behalf ...

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Fri Feb 03 08:20:22 GMT 2023

The union movement must be rebuilt and as soon as possible. It will only be harder the more the movement declines. Rebuilding can only be done through a rank and file insurgency. There may be times and places where it is appropriate to organise new unions (for example in entirely unorganised parts of the workforce, or where the existing union is wholly on the side of the bosses and cannot be recaptured by its members). Most workers, though, will not break with the officials until they are already mobilised and a practical decision is in front of them, so the insurgency must operate largely within existing unions. - Australia: State of the union movement - We are witnessing the slow extinction of Australia's trade union movement. In 1976, 2.5 million Australian workers (some ...

The demonstration called for this Saturday, January 28 at 12 noon in the Triumph for the Platform against the power outages of Granada. We encourage the dissemination and participation in this important event, which affects basic and essential aspects of the lives of thousands of neighbors. ---- We disseminate the manifesto that they have published: ---- MANIFESTO AGAINST POWER CUTS IN GRANADA 2023 ---- In January 2023, the year in which Granada will host a European Council, in which culture, science, research and technology transfer are their banners, hundreds of their neighbors continue to suffer avoidable power outages at their homes.

The second half of January on the Polish-Belarusian border. The attention of the media ended a long time ago, the authorities bombarded us with assurances about the effectiveness of the border barrier. Of course, despite all this, people are still trying to get to a place where they can be safe and lead a normal life. No wall or violence from the services will stop them from doing so. Therefore, we are still in Podlasie and we carry out aid activities here. ---- Recent weeks have indeed seen a smaller number of attempts to cross the border, but sometimes, in the last 17 months, this number has fallen, only to suddenly soar again. There are fewer people, but they are still here. ---- Recently, we have received news of more bodies found at the border. Last night we met three people in the forest ...


(en) Italy, Sicilia Libertaria: Israel: Interview with a comrade from Ter Aviv - The nightmare Netanyahu is back (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Thu Feb 02 07:10:22 GMT 2023

In Israel, the most radical and xenophobic right has returned to power. This means that the already strongly anti-Palestinian and illibertarian policies of the outgoing government will undergo a militaristic boost and the consolidation of the occupation of Palestinian lands and the expulsion of the legitimate inhabitants. Together with Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud, the Otsma Yehudi party (Jewish Power), the Religious Zionist Party and the Noam party entered the government, forming a coalition of fundamentalist and fascist fanatics. ---- We interviewed a comrade from Tel Aviv about this situation. ---- 1) After the recent general elections, Netanyahu returned to power supported by the far right; what can we expect from this new government regarding the issue of civil rights, ...

In mid-November, the XXXVIIth congress of the FAPT-CGT (Federation of Postal Activities and Telecommunications) was held. We return here to two important questions that were discussed. ---- The entire CGT has been shaken for some time by the feminist wave. On the subject of sexist and sexual violence (VSS) within the CGT and its confederal watch cell, the management of the FAPT-CGT rather shares the proactive positions of Marie Buisson, approached to succeed Philippe Martinez. The congress heard several interventions to support this cell and present tools to fight against SGBV. ---- Few unions intervened to explain their practices on this subject. And when one of them proposed the establishment of a training plan on GBV, this was reflected in the orientation document by a vague ...
