In the shadow of the crisis

Today, on May Day, we dedicate ourselves to this revolution, and the establishment of libertarian communism, a State-less society where each contributes according to their ability and receives according to their need.


* Chicago

May Day is International Workers Day. It began in the U.S. With protests over the framing and execution of Anarchist union organisers for the death of police killed by a bomb which exploded at a workers' bomb in Chicago. Since then, workers around the world have used it to campaign around the issues of the day, celebrate working class solidarity and dedicate themselves to the struggle for a better world.

* Financial Crisis

Capitalism has fallen into a massive crisis. Losses from poor quality housing loans in the U.S. have led to the exposure of reckless and sometimes fraudulent financial practices. Banks and insurance companies in the U.S. have fallen. Entire national economies of second-ranking countries like Iceland, Hungary and Ireland have imploded. Despite massive financial bail-outs, the system remains shaky and further collapses cannot be ruled out. The financial shock has knocked the world into the worst recession since World War II, with Asian and African countries untouched by the financial crisis being drawn in by collapsing export markets. Capitalist predictions of recovery are more statements of hope than conviction.

* Australia

Australia has also joined its trading partners in recession. Banks, dependent on overseas markets for funds, have cut back on credit. Volumes and prices of mineral exports have dropped substantially. The stock market has fallen savagely. The fallout from all this is serious and growing. Thousands of small investors, and a few large ones, have been ruined by corporate collapses. Millions of workers have found their retirement savings disappearing as superannuation funds have made large losses on the stock market. And, like a spectre the capitalists thought banished into the past, mass unemployment has returned. Jobs are being destroyed at a frightening rate and employers are also beginning to go on the offensive over wages and working conditions.

* Workers of the World, Unite!

In the face of this gathering catastrophe, the relevance of May Day is thus once more underlined. Workers around the world are finding the bosses of their country have proven themselves their enemies, while the allies they need are amongst the workers of other countries. Capitalism, as well as being unjust, is inherently crisis-prone. Only a vast revolution of the working class, across the world, can throw it into the dustbin of history. Today, on May Day, we dedicate ourselves to this revolution, and the establishment of libertarian communism, a State-less society where each contributes according to their ability and receives according to their need.

WORKERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!

No matter what gains we make in struggle, sooner or later employers and governments will try to roll them back. And no matter how much ground we give, employers and governments will only come back for more. The class war goes on, because whether we fight or we don’t, capital never stops fighting. The struggle will continue until we organise as a class, take the means of production into our own hands, and overthrow the entire capitalist system. Only workers’ revolution can end the class war and bring peace to the human race.

As long as capitalism endures, the world will be wracked by economic crisis and war, but there is a solution. We can unite across national borders with a global movement against capitalism and all its ills. We can build our movement with federalism and direct democracy rather than authoritarianism and hierarchy. And we can make a revolution, forging a classless global society of libertarian communism, where a free federation of workplaces and communities replaces capitalism and the State. We can establish, at last, a world of liberty, equality and solidarity and it will be done by practicing the values of the society we wish to create.

The only way to end the crises of capitalism is to abolish capitalism itself. And the only way to abolish capitalism is for the working class to seize the means of production which are the foundation of the power of capital. In the immortal words of Lucy Parsons, widow of one of the Haymarket Martrys and a labour activist in her own right, "Never be deceived that the rich will allow you to vote away their wealth". In short, we must make a revolution. We will abolish the capitalist State and replace it with the free federation of workplaces and communities worldwide. We will establish libertarian communism, a classless society where the freedom and equality of each is the condition of the freedom and equality of all.

imageThe need for a rank and file movement Feb 03 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

The Campaign for a General Strike to Stop Tony Abbott is developing, but needs to go a lot further and a lot faster. Each day that goes by without an organised working class response is a day that Liberals harm working class people and democratic rights in Australia further, a day to destroy the environment, torture refugees, wage imperialist war in West Asia, stoke reactionary social forces and stack public offices with Right wing zealots. To wait till the next election is to concede Tony Abbott the right to commit any crimes, no matter how appalling. [Italiano]

imageAs simple as ABCC Jan 17 by MACG 0 comments

Instead, we must emphasise that the defence of democratic rights is inseparable from the defence of the working class and its organisations. We have the right to organise, and no government can take it away. The Australian Building & Construction Commission must be defeated. It's as simple as ABCC.

textOur rights at work Okt 04 by MACG 0 comments

Our rights at work will be defended by grassroots workers’ struggle, or they won’t be defended at all. And in that struggle, we will build the democracy and the solidarity that embody the values of a different kind of society.
