The automated email centre for 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 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 specific kind of anarchism we talk about and 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) Ireland, WSM Report back from Dublin meeting on Croke Park - your opinions?
Fri May 24 14:32:41 GMT 2013
On the 8th of May the WSM held a meeting in Dublin on the Croke Park No Vote. A 3rd 'deal' has since been announced and we will be arguing for a No vote on that deal but we want to invite our readers to look at the notes below and to post comments on what they think is the way to defeat the attempts by the union leaders and government to impose these cuts in one way or the other. The meeting was divided into discussion tables with the people attending moving between the discussions at these tables and a WSM member taking notes of the discussion, these are the notes below. ---- Notes from 'How do public service cuts effect you' table ---- Some people were public service workers, they said they are seeing increased workload and demoralisation as well as the more obvious cuts to pay that have happened and the loss of sick pay. ...

Palestina-Israele, 65 anni fa la Nakba - Israele si arraffa il bottino
velocemente per prenderne ancora di più [en]
Report del 21.05.13:
Sono passati già 65 anni dalla Nakba ed io ancora ricordo Deir Yassin
ed altri pezzi di memorie di nove anni prima. Mi ci sono voluti troppi
anni per rimettere insieme questi pezzi e liberarmi del lavaggio di
cervello sionista di stampo nazionalsocialista (marxista). Negli
ultimi 47 anni ho imparato la libertà dal libro di Erich Fromm, "Fuga
dalla Libertà" ed ho cercato di tenere aperto questo sentiero anche
per altri. La partecipazione alla lotta unitaria insieme ai comitati

Fri May 24 09:44:31 GMT 2013
Es ya un lugar común, lo que no significa que sea menos cierto, decir
que la historia la escriben los vencedores. En el caso de la
Revolución rusa, si durante mucho tiempo se nos contó de manera
simplista que un grupo de revolucionarios, comandados por Lenin, tomó
el Palacio de Invierno para dar lugar al primer gran régimen
socialista. Ahora, con otro tipo de historiografía oficial dominante,
difícilmente se va a dar protagonismo en la historia a las masas y la
defensa de sus organizaciones autónomas frente al poder. Mencionamos
tres libros impagables que nos introducen en la Revolución rusa, desde
el punto de vista de la autonomía del pueblo, no de ninguna élite, y

Please check the link below this article and share with others! ---- In the days leading up to the Chicago NATO summit in May 2012, five anti-NATO activists were prememptively arrested after undercover informants infiltrated the Occupy movement. Co-defendants Brent Betterly, Jared Chase, and Brian Church were charged with 11 felonies, some of which were brought under the Illinois state terrorism statute. Their attorneys challenged the terrorism statute as unconstitutional on its face and as applied to this case, but the judge denied their motion to dismiss the terrorism charges on March 27, 2013. The NATO 3 trial is currently scheduled for mid-September 2013. In two separate cases, Sebastian Senakiewicz was charged with falsely making a terrorist threat and took a non-cooperating plea deal in November 2012. ...

Somos l@s sin techo del parque de Tatekawa Kasenshiki, al este de
Tokio. El parque donde vivimos fue construido encima de un rÃo cegado,
y se extiende a lo largo de una autopista elevada. AllÃ hemos
construido unas cabaÃas y es donde vivimos. En 2012, sufrimos dos
operaciones de expulsiÃn. Cortaron el agua en el parque, prohibieron
el acceso a los baÃos durante cuatro meses con la excusa de trabajos
de renovaciÃn, y actualmente, los baÃos estÃn cerrados por la noche.
Desde los trabajos de renovaciÃn, el parque estÃ cerrado durante la
noche de las 6 de la tarde a las 8 de la maÃana y grandes rejas
impiden el acceso. Se levantaron rejas de 2 metros de alto alrededor
