(en) US, Twin Cities IWW* Resolution Against the Attack on the People of Lebanon and Palestine

Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 11:23:12 +0300

Adopted August 1, 2006 by the Twin Cities General Membership
Branch of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW)
I. Whereas the IWW has always stood for international solidarity and against
all exploitation, oppression and attempts to divide our class by war,
II. Whereas the State of Israel’s U.S.-backed aggression against
the people of Lebanon and Palestine has caused the murder of hundreds of
working-class civilians (including many children), the displacement of
hundreds of thousands, and the destruction of communities and infrastructure,
III. Whereas this war - like the rest of the so-called “War on
Terrorism” will not bring security to working people in any
country, but only more violence and repression,

IV. Whereas this war will only increase the prestige and power of the
reactionary fundamentalist forces who are now leading the resistance,

V. Be it resolved that the IWW Twin Cities General Membership
branch shall seek to :

1. Join and build popular mobilizations and direct action against the
war - bringing our message of international working-class solidarity
against the bosses.
2. Educate our membership, our friends and co-workers on the need
to oppose this war.
3. Send direct aid to progressive working-class unions and
organizations in Lebanon, Palestine, and Israel who are against the
4. Forward this motion for discussion and action to:
a) The IWW General Executive Board for consideration as the basis
for a union-wide statement.
The IWW International Solidarity Commission for consideration as
the basis for an ISC appeal.
and as a letter for publication to the Industrial Worker newspaper and
the iww.org website from the Twin Cities IWW GMB.
