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."

On Tuesday, March 20, colleague Roberto Cirilo Perdía died at the age of 82. From a very young age he was linked to student and union militancy. He toured northern Santa Fe as a lawyer involved in the workers' cause. He joined the guerrilla of the Peronist Armed Forces and Base Peronism as a political sector of the left of the 60s and 70s in Argentina. Later, these groups merged into Montoneros, an organization that had extensive development not only at the level of armed action, but especially in the popular movement with strong influence therein.

NO FORGIVENESS! YESTERDAY AND TODAY! MILITARY AND COUPIST BOSSES! ---- 60 years ago, on April 1, 1964, a Military Dictatorship began in Brazil. The military destroyed political and labor rights, exterminated indigenous peoples and murdered, tortured and raped opponents. All in the name of the bosses' profits and the American flag. ---- Without punishment, today these same soldiers hold public positions and defend the most hateful things in politics. Worse, they orchestrated a coup with Bolsonaro and make it clear that they are eager to do it all over again.

Tue Apr 16 05:25:30 GMT 2024

At the beginning of March, the Lula government sent a Complementary Bill (PLP) to Congress that regulates the work of app drivers who transport people with 4-wheel vehicles. PLP 12/2024 is a farce, as it is being presented as an achievement for workers without being so. It is a setback for the category and also a cruel laboratory in which governments and employers are experimenting with new ways to further exploit the entire working class. To overcome this, there is no point in exchanging politician A for politician B, but building a process of organizing the category at the base. Direct action by workers can defeat any attack on their rights and achieve real gains. ...

Everything is going well and it couldn't be going better: the centre-right government is celebrating the spread at historic lows, employment growing, unemployment decreasing, but, who knows why the real country is worse off, healthcare is a disaster, people are giving up to be treated, wages are low, rates for the purchase of properties are skyrocketing. Yet this is the government of full, poor employment, where according to the statistical institute, working one hour a week, for an "indefinite" period, does not constitute a condemnation to the deepest poverty but means being employed, where a monthly salary that does not exceeds 500 or 600 euros is the ordinary administration for many and ...

Tue Apr 16 05:24:28 GMT 2024

B. Lahire's book is a book that can challenge us as libertarian communists. There are stimulating aspects and disturbing aspects because they apparently contradict our militant objectives of an egalitarian society. His voluminous book (950 pages), is based on a lot of scientific work (from Darwin to today) and calls on revolutionary activists, notably Marx (to a lesser extent Bakunin, Kropotkin, Pannekoek, Elisé Reclus , ...). It seeks to establish the transhistorical and transcultural social imperatives of human societies and therefore the laws of their functioning. To do this, it uses comparisons between species and between human societies. ...

Tue Apr 16 05:24:12 GMT 2024

On November 29, to everyone's surprise, the 2030 Winter Olympics were awarded to the French Alps, the only bid ultimately accepted by the IOC (International Olympic Committee). While locally the winter sports economy shows all its limits, the announcement of these Olympic Games for 2030 goes against the economically, ecologically, socially and humanly desirable solutions for these territories. ---- Recall of facts. On November 7, 2023, the French Alps submitted a bid for the Olympic Games in 2030. Green and sustainable, innovative Olympic Games, a feat in the context of climate change. We of course imagine a complex and detailed file, but it has not been made public. November 21 is the grand ...

The progressive regulation of our lives in the name of security and coexistence, to the point of suffocating us (although generally in a metaphorical way), is one of the main tools of the Rule of Law for the control of its population. We don't discover anything new. Different meanings of the same word make it very clear: "to put something in order", "to adjust the operation of a system to certain purposes". But what is that order? What purposes do they serve? These are difficult questions to answer, more than anything, because they can have several possible solutions. So let's look at some examples to see what we mean.

(en) UK, ACG: The Garrick Club: Just One Emblem of Class Rule and Patriarchy (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]
a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Apr 15 06:37:43 GMT 2024

The Garrick Club is just one of the elitist institutions in London set up to enable networking within the various parts of the ruling class and the State. Other clubs for the rich and powerful, the so called "great" and "good," include Annabel's, the Athenaeum, Boodle's, Brook's, the Conduit, the Marylebone Cricket Club, and many others. To this can be added the Bullingdon Club open to elite members of Oxford University. ---- The Garrick is one of the oldest of these clubs, founded in 1831. It geared itself to the arts and theatre, naming itself after actor David Garrick, and had or has members like Charles Dickens, H.G. Wells, Kingsley Amis, actors Stephen Fry, Benedict Cumberbatch, Hugh ...

On this April 1st, we remember that 60 years ago the military, supported by Brazilian elites, reactionary sectors and Yankee imperialism, managed to carry out a coup d'état and established a bloodthirsty and violent military dictatorship. ---- We know the role that the military played in the Brazilian Republic. Despite a popular republican movement, it was the military who overthrew Dom Pedro II and started the Brazilian republic in 1889 with the clear objective of preventing the republican process from challenging the class privileges of the agrarian ruling class of the time.
However, there were several moments when military sectors rose up ...

a-infos-en@ainfos.ca
Mon Apr 15 06:37:11 GMT 2024

The latest electoral poll through the regional elections has concluded for the moment with a draw, but the voting trend deserves to be analyzed because it provides interesting keys to understanding the political situation in the country. The first and most evident fact that emerges is that only around 50% of the voters went to the polls, with the result that it is necessary to weigh the consensus gathered by the elected representatives and that attributed to the losers and in the meantime admit that the winners of the one and the other party have the consent of no more than a quarter of the voters entitled to vote. This highlights the crisis of politics and citizens' participation in voting, ...
