Let us learn from our past struggles, in the USA and in Malaysia. May Day should be an occasion to reflect not jubilate, to engage not agonize, to demand not relent, and to organise, not complain. We need systemic change that can guarantee equality, fraternity, self-management and socialisation of the commonwealth, guided by a bottom–up approach to decision making. We need a labour movement that is multicultural and international, feminist, active in urban and rural struggles, and that prizes reason over superstition, justice over hierarchy, self-management over state power, international solidarity over nationalism. We need to fight for a universal human community, not parochialism and separatism. The organisational power and strategic location of the Malaysian union movement provides an excellent point of departure for building this counter-movement. This is our appeal and message as we celebrate this May Day, on the eve of dark days in which the storm clouds gather over humanity – but in which the light of hope of a better future can break through, if we arm ourselves with the correct ideas and approaches. May Day began as an example of globalisation-from-below. Let us rally to it. Let us take back its original vision: liberty, equality, unity.

In questa fase di grande difficoltà per milioni di lavoratori e lavoratrici perseguitati dalle guerre guerreggiate e dalla devastante ristrutturazione capitalistica in atto da 10 anni, dobbiamo costruire una strategia di rottura con il sistema di dominio. Per fare questo abbiamo bisogno di organizzare, in tutte le sfere della vita sociale una trasformazione radicale. In questo senso la costruzione di una forza capace di autogestione sociale è indispensabile se vogliamo sconfiggere le classi dominanti. read full story / add a comment

April 28 is a day of nation-wide mobilization against the austerity measures and fiscal adjustments of that are eroding workers’ rights. Demonstrations and a general strike will be occurring, led by those who are being oppressed in Brazil, especially workers. We know that the effectiveness of these actions depend on the participation of the base in the preparation and organization. The strength of workers lies in direct action — the strike, the picket, the interruption of traffic, the march — in the workplace, in schools, and in neighborhoods; progress has stagnated in the summits convened by central unions that have capitulated to “business as usual” and ceased to be effective in their bureaucratic routines, congressional negotiations, and lobbying.
