CNT: Towards a class front

The social movement of Spring 2003 was an important stage in the
renaissance of our syndicalism. Our industrial syndicates actively
participated in the organization of the struggle and were in some cases
a driving force. They encouraged horizontal organization and direct
action by the workers, they encouraged inter-professional cooperation
and they made immediate demands with a revolutionary perspective.

This Congress will have to provide a strong axis which can answer the
bosses' offensive and help firmly establish our radical syndicalism. It
will have to deal with adapting our structures to our development.
Answers will have to be found to strategic questions such as
participation in collective bargaining or the creation of new
industrial syndicates.

This Congress will have to unite all our strengths in order that it may
pursue and develop the renewal of anarcho-syndicalism and revolutionary
