Syndication Of A-Infos - including RDF - How to Syndicate A-Infos
In the struggle for a free society, we distribute news and articles

range of areas.
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) France, UCL press release - Hangover for LREM and defeat to the taste of victory for the RN (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]
Fri Jul 01 05:41:56 GMT 2022
This is the cold shower for the presidential camp. If LREM and its satellites managed to avoid the scenario of cohabitation with the NUPES which made them so nightmare, they failed to obtain an absolute majority with their coalition. A first in the history of the Fifth Republic since the transition to the five-year term and the reversal of the electoral calendar in 2002! Although they are weakened by this disavowal which occurred so soon after his re-election, it is likely that President Macron and his party will seek to concoct a grub with the most traditional right or even the far right to save their five-year term and bar the road to the social democratic left. So here we go again for five years of social and police violence, ecological destruction, contempt for feminist and ...

Fri Jul 01 05:40:37 GMT 2022
The 9-storey complex made up of shops, 400 parking spaces and condos is causing a lot of anger in the town of Rivière-du-loup, in Bas-du-Fleuve, where tenants were already having difficulty finding apartments. affordable housing. Many had the unpleasant surprise of learning that their homes were going to be destroyed to make way for the tower that is breaking the tranquility of their street. Others are rightly alert to possible rent increases. The town hall hastened to give its approval to the megaproject despite the opposition of several citizens of the city. ---- A very pretty poster has flowered in the last hours on the poles of downtown Rivière-du-loup where you can see a dinosaur with the head of Yan Boudreau, president of the Medway Group. The project is denounced as "monstrous" ...

With the bosses? Never. With the union reps? Sometimes. With the rank and file? Always! ---- We at Organise give our full support to the striking workers of the RMT. Here we are publishing an article explaining the real reasons behind the action, from a friend and comrade who wishes to remain anonymous. ---- I am a typical railway worker based in Bristol, I have worked on the railway for over 3 years, having started just under a year before the Covid-19 pandemic. I worked through the pandemic as normal, as did all of my colleagues. We understood that our job was to keep the country going through difficult times. We risked our health to come in and do our job, sadly many of our colleagues didn't make it and I miss them deeply. ...

Fri Jul 01 05:38:12 GMT 2022
In this text we present an analysis of the results of the second round of the 2022 presidential elections in Colombia from the perspective of Grupo Libertario Vía Libre. To that end, we analyze the increase in electoral participation, the historic victory of the center left, the deep limitations of the national agreement program and democratic capitalism, as well as some anarchist perspectives for social change. ---- Increased voter turnout ---- According to bulletin 63 of the pre-count of the National Registry of Civil Status, with 99.99% of the tables counted, these votes registered a relative increase in participation in these elections: 22,658,694 votes and 58.09% of the total number of voters. This represents an increase of 1,217,089 votes and an increase of 3.1% ...
(en) France, UCL AL #328 - Culture, Read: Roumier and Mahieux "Power, politics, social movements", Les Utopiques n°19, March 2022 (ca, de, it, fr, pt, tr)[machine translation]
Fri Jul 01 05:37:18 GMT 2022
Reopening an age-old debate is never easy. Relations between the organs of power, politics, trade unions and social movements are complex, and the interpenetrations multiple. Behind these questions lies an essential issue: that of the autonomy of the social movement, of the search for a political outlet for the struggles. ---- Independence, autonomy or subservience of the trade union movement to political parties : these issues run through social movements and continue to polarize debates among those who want to change society. ---- This new issue of the review Les Utopiques offers us, as usual, views, sensibilities, cross-experiences and reflections more focused on politics around the Charter of Amiens (which, voted by the CGT in 1906, assigns to trade unionism the " double ...

Thu Jun 30 05:37:53 GMT 2022
More than 800 people mobilized on May 14 in Pertuis in the Vaucluse against a project to extend an economic activity zone threatening 86 hectares of fertile land. Activists have been fighting for more than three years against this project and alert residents to the excesses of local politics. ---- We are in 2022 AD, the whole Earth is attacked by concrete. All ? Nope ! A village populated by diehard Zapatatistas resists the invader again and again. This village is that of Pertuis, in the heart of Provence, whose mayor, Roger Pellenc, has still not understood that money and concrete cannot be eaten. But nearly 30 associations and collectives are there to remind him by fighting for almost three years against a project to extend an economic activity zone threatening 86 hectares of ...

Thu Jun 30 05:37:42 GMT 2022
On June 25, the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) returns to the streets of Valencia with a joint call for alternative trade unionism in Plaza del Temple "against the reforms that make the working class more precarious." ---- CGT together with the alternative trade unionism of Valencia (CNT, COS and Intersindical Valenciana) calls for a rally in Plaza del Temple on June 25 "against the reforms that make the working class precarious" and emphasizes three demands such as "the complete repeal of the labor reforms of 2010 and 2012, against the cost of living and the general rise in prices and the opposition to the income pact that aims to contain salary and pension increases."

Continuously updated overview of support options for meaningful activities outside the official structure. ---- In the ongoing Putin War, anarchists, both in Ukraine and in Russia itself, are not left out. Of course, their ability to reach material and financial support through official channels is limited, so we would like to keep track of credible grassroot initiatives that you can support. ---- If you know of other options or have up-to-date information on existing ones, please do not hesitate to contact us. ---- The Ukrainian operation Operation Solidarity writes about itself: ---- We are supporters of horizontal society, solidarity and cooperation from various cities in Ukraine.

(en) Czech, AFED: Watch out for anti-imperialism idiots! - Review of the brochure "We told you" about the Syrian perspective of the war in Ukraine (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]
Thu Jun 30 05:37:15 GMT 2022
One of the publications prepared for this year's Anarchist Book Festival (AFK) was a yellow-blue brochure, published by Salé Distribution , which, even after the demise of the Salé info shop, is actively involved in disseminating (not only) anarchist books and other publications. The brochure called We Told You This is a great contribution to the debate on the war in Ukraine. He views it from the perspective of one collective, two authors and two authors from the perspective of the Syrian revolution against dictator Bashar al-Assad. It reveals the bloody fascist nature of Putin's regime, the hypocrisy of the West, which has "looked elsewhere" for years, as well as the idiocy of the part of the left that has imprisoned itself in the prism of Euro-Atlantic imperialism. ...

As a membership delegate for the South-East Queensland Union of Renters I first met David at a talk the union held in Moorooka. I didn't get much of a chance to talk to David then, but my comrades did. All I really remember was the woman he was with telling us during the Q and A that David needed union support. ---- David informed one of my fellow delegates that he was a disability pensioner living in public housing, and that he was in the midst of a long battle with the Department of Housing who seemed determined to evict him. David came to our next meeting and filled us in on what had been happening. About his long running dispute with the department, and their apparent determination to send him back into homelessness. One thing he said during the meeting particularly stuck in my ...
