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."

We are coming to the end of 2022, and with that, we are living the period of another electoral circus, this time with even more airs of spectacle, in the midst of a still very serious scenario of hunger, misery and violence against the oppressed classes. With the machine in their favor, Bolsonaro and the Military, in addition to focusing on the electoral game, maintain a mobilized and violent base of supporters, as demonstrated by the acts of September 7 and recent episodes. ---- Meanwhile, a broad political front headed by Lula and Alckmin calls for a conciliation of classes even further back than in recent periods. This movement was represented by the pro-democracy letters, articulated by the great employers' organizations, such as Fiesp and Febraban, the most aristocratic ...

Thu Oct 06 06:09:38 GMT 2022

In its summer issue, Le Figaro Histoire publishes an interview with Pio Moa. Former communist activist, now repentant, and author of a book, The Myths of the Spanish Civil War, he supports the thesis that the responsibility for the Francoist coup of July 1936, and the war that followed, lies to the violence of the communists and anarchists who were preparing a revolution. ---- Le Figaro Histoire is delivering an anthology issue to us this summer 2022. First of all, its cover, in its own heroic and flamboyant style, highlights two conquistadors on horseback in a setting that one imagines of a South American forest, no doubt in search of Eldorado. ---- The main subject then, the Epic of the conquistadors, where we rehabilitate the figure of Cortes, apostle of interbreeding, unfairly ...

Last Sunday, members and friends of the Collectif Emma Goldman held a new edition of La Marmite autogérée in downtown Chicoutimi. The participants did not fail to underline their joy and their enthusiasm to the members of the collective in front of the return of the Marmite. Barely an hour after the start of the activity, the entire contents of the large pot of spag had been distributed, the coffee stove was empty and the dozens of eggs on the table had been given away. As in previous editions, this activity makes it possible to put forward the principles of cooperation and mutual aid, to put aside mediation and money, to have interesting discussions on the different realities experienced downtown . But above all, to have a good time, time that does not benefit capital but ...

From the FAR we believe that feminism and the anti-patriarchal struggle are strategic in order to build a new world and end this system of domination that oppresses us in multiple ways. ---- This last year, the fight for free abortion was a central axis around which we were in the streets from the student, neighborhood and union organizations to which we belong. We believe that a demand was expressed from below that became unavoidable, leading to the law of legal interruption of pregnancy being very close to being approved. However, the same parliamentary game sets rules that ended up favoring the most conservative and reactionary sectors, leaving the law postponed for at least a year and hundreds of women condemned to have abortions in the worst conditions of secrecy and ...

As you may have noticed, our public relations mandates are still understaffed. However, there is a lot of everyday help and union work hidden behind blank media channels. In the last few months, our members have again helped each other with a variety of problems: company groups have been set up in companies, workers from agriculture and horticulture are currently organizing an industry network, we took action against layoffs and wage cuts, helped us with debts, problems with the Job center, the tax return and the residence permit, informed Ukrainian workers about their rights in Germany and much more. ---- In order to be able to do all this, many of our members continued their education, including this coming weekend at the FAU summer school with a large number of workshops. In addition, ...

In the following, Sri Lankan anarchist 'Gadfly', who participated in the protest movement that overthrew President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, reflects on GotaGoGama (Goto, Go Home), the occupation that was at the heart of the movement. Gama is the Sinhalese word for "village"; the Tamil equivalent is gramam. Since April 9, protesters have permanently occupied Galle Face, a half-kilometer oceanfront park in the center of Colombo, Sri Lanka's capital. On 9 July, a massive mob stormed the presidential palace, the presidential secretariat and the prime minister's residence, forcing Gotabaya Rajapaksa to flee the country.

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Wed Oct 05 09:47:21 GMT 2022

In the aftermath of the First World War, and despite the failure of the Spartacist revolution of 1919, the first years of the Weimar Republic saw the birth of numerous emancipatory social experiments. This was particularly the case with the libertarian school communities of Hamburg, Gemeinschaftsschulen, and in particular the Wendeschule, which went the furthest in applying libertarian principles both in terms of teaching practices and the organization of school life. The rise of National Socialism definitively sealed the fate of the last community schools. ---- The history of Hamburg's school communities (Gemeinschaftsschulen), which will see the birth of some of the most daring emancipatory school experiments, is part of a broader movement, the New School, ...

Since the appearance of anarchism, education has been the subject of great concern among activists, because it takes part in the maintenance or transformation of societies and their relations of domination. Anarchists were early aware of the essential place to be given to education in social conflicts[1]. Infatuated with hope, revolt and freedom, they always ask themselves: how am I going to pass on my values and my ideas to the next generation? It is not a question of tracing a path for it, nor of instilling in it a new ready-to-think - freedom is too dear to us. Nevertheless, in the face of issues such as exploitation and alienation, systemic oppressions, militarism and the climate crisis, it is only natural for libertarians to encourage children to ...

Don't go quietly into the peaceful night. ---- To rage, to rage when the light dies. ---- For several years now, but especially in the last three, we are faced with a multi-level and on all fronts attack that will intensify in the coming difficult winter. It is obvious that the regime chooses, as its only way out, the invocation of the internal and/or external enemy. They have the impression that by hitting the most radical part of the social movement they will succeed in terrorizing the oppressed and the exploited, rallying the far-right and far-centrist audiences and avoiding the social processes born from the impasses of the exploitative system. History will not do them any favors, because History is made by people who fight against the dark. ...
