Let’s battle for prices to lessen, for the minimum wage to be adjusted to 300 gourdes as even they had calculated it, to reorganize production for more work, to redistribute wealth, to control and orient the productive capacities of the county: hit the inner core of those they call the ‘private sector’ and all the major cadres wasting so many thousands of dollars a month in NGOs that finally just play the game of the imperialists.

MAYDAY 2008! A major date for all of us of the working class, all us workers, all us potential workers that the suffering imposed by the ruling classes, in the context of the imperialist domination, have left on the floor to swallow air, in a desperate condition. HUNGER, UNEMPLOYMENT, SKYROCKETING FOOD PRICES are the lot that we the people have caused to rise up in the month of April. The crisis struck severely, in the faces of all these reactionaries, even if some of them used these mobilizations of the popular masses. On MAYDAY 2008, the State, the government, continue to dillydally on the question of our MISERY MINIMUM WAGES. On MAYDAY 2008, they continue to rhetoric about national production. Nothing has been said about reorganizing production, about the AGRARIAN REFORM.

MAYDAY 2008, JUSTICE for WORKERS has proven rotten! Mayday 2008, the OCCUPATION IS EVER YET PRESENT! They are justifying it. No measures have been taken to emerge from it. Quite the contrary! It arranges them, it’s good for the ruling classes: they immerse themselves in it! With their open hands in front! MAYDAY 2008, is the worst!

Still: There is battle. Concerning the land, the workers are demanding redistribution. Similarly, the working class confronts the bloodsucking factory owners (such as in Batay Ouvriye facing CD Apparel – Pilorges – or Faubert, amongst others).

At the international level, the fights are very difficult, but advances are occurring.

MAYDAY 2008 – MAYDAY 2009, we’re entering a year of fighting, a year of major mobilization. A year that may have as an outcome a major EXPLOSION. For it not to be manipulated, we can’t allow it to occur as such, in order for it not to have the outcome of 1986. We have to advance in our practice to build the peoples’ camp, with the WORKERS AS CENTRAL AXIS. We have to start from our battles, to demonstrate the NEED FOR A NEW STATE and concretely fight for it!

DOWN WITH UNEMPLOYMENT, open or disguised! DOWN WITH THE NEOLIBERAL PLAN, down with the OCCUPATION! DOWN WITH ALL ANTI-POPULAR REPRESSION, regardless of their excuses!

ALL OF THESE ‘DOWN WITHs’ JUST MEAN: LET’S CONTINUE THE BATTLE AGAINST, LET’S FIGHT FOR!

Let’s battle for prices to lessen, for the minimum wage to be adjusted to 300 gourdes as even they had calculated it, to reorganize production for more work, to redistribute wealth, to control and orient the productive capacities of the county: hit the inner core of those they call the ‘private sector’ and all the major cadres wasting so many thousands of dollars a month in NGOs that finally just play the game of the imperialists. Advance in the struggle against all forms of corruption, of ‘big-eaters’. Advance in the struggle against drugs in a national conception. Advance, really, in our struggle against all the malevolent gangs!

ALL THIS NEEDS TO BE BASED ON A POPULAR MOBILIZATION WITH A STATE ALLOWING IT TO ADVANCE. It’s got to be completely linked with the various other axes of STRUGGLE. All of this, closely linked with our struggles, our PRACTICES to accomplish our disoccupation, based on our interests as workers, the only way to issue to be addressed and resolved.

FOR SURE: A NEW STATE IS A NEED! During this one year, this is the FIGHT we need to address and lead and that WE WILL LEAD. IT’S A MAJOR STRUGGLE! LET’S GET INTO IT, INDEPENDENTLY! DENOUNCE, DO, CREATE A DIFFERENT ALTERNATIVE!

FORWARD MAYDAY!

FORWARD THE STRUGGLES OF ALL WORKERS IN THE WORLD!
