(en) Brazil, Uniaoanarquista UNIPA - May 1: Rebuild the revolutionary syndicalism and the general strike as alternatives fight! (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 05 May 2014 10:11:59 +0300

In 1886 thousands of workers in the U.S. began to fight for better conditions of work and life. Demanded the workday to eight hours. The government repressed the workers who participated in strikes and demonstrations. Several workers were sentenced to death and executed, especially the anarchist workers. ---- Poster reminds anarchist, imprisoned and murdered by the state in the midst of labor disputes in 1886 workers' leaders. Martyrs of Chicago! ---- So the first of May was chosen as the day of action and mourning for workers. To remember that labor rights were won through struggle, blood and sweat. To remember and honor our martyrs, and continue your fight. ---- Brazil in 2014, the year in which the government tries to push a World Cup with guaranteed funds deviations and precariousness of life of the poor, the fight against precariousness of life remains. The majority of the population receives very little and works in unhealthy situations, often without any right and suffers from high food prices, poor public school and die in the ranks of SUS. The May 1 should serve for the same purpose, to keep the people's struggle for better living conditions. This is a struggle against governments (as Dilma / PT) and against entrepreneurs.

To contain the people fighting, Dilma / PT government relies military police and armed forces in the slums, showing the result of investment in repression against the workers who live in slums, which are treated as criminals and subjected to police brutality. Several innocent workers are killed in Brazil today as a hundred years ago in the USA. We take just the most notorious cases as Mason Amarildo and Para Gari, Cleonice Vieira, who died in service on June 20 after being shocked by the bombs dropped by the police, and most recently Claudia Silva Ferreira murdered by the PM and had the body dragged across the paddy wagon like a dog.

Amid repression, workers still suffer with pelegas union leaders and government supporters, trying at all costs to stop the struggle of the workers, and when they fail, try to avoid radicalized tactics necessary for the construction of a General Strike. 's way of building the general strike is the basic work in the workplace, housing and study. It is the construction of guidelines claims a dialogue and that meets all working. The construction is performed by holding joint meetings of several categorical which is built collectively through the relationship of equality and not by overlapping patterns of one category over another. Example is the convening of joint manifestations. The result will be the general stoppage of all work activities. It is the uprising of the working people against the State and Capital.

The task of the revolutionary anarchists

Increasingly electoral parties go away 1st May its real meaning. Not only by CUT / PT who openly performs concerts, giveaways, etc., while the workers suffer large class of attacks Government. But we must warn against the parties opposed to it, but carry a 1st May little combative and no mobilization at the grassroots, not even construct acts of street militancy own and end up getting the trailer strategies to "please the populace "with music and theaters taking the place of confrontation with the bourgeoisie and the established order. This is the tactic used by for-governismo (SoL / PSTU / PCB) which reproduce the methods of governismo even without government.

We need to break the revolutionary anarchist theory and practice with the reformist method of struggle, but also with the union structure, which hooks up to the state unions converting them into an integral part of the state apparatus. So that these should be the instruments of struggle become conciliators interests of employers for workers. 's also necessary to tow the union tactic reconstruction of revolutionary syndicalism oppositions.

Clash of Haymarket, battle that took place amid mass strikes and clashes with police and gave rise to the 1st of May.

Creating A month of May unification of strikes between categories and direct combat against the bourgeoisie and the governments that is expressed in the motto WILL NOT HAVE COPA! Transforming the mere symbolism in a real fight that unifies the working class! Following the tradition, 1886 is now creating a new inspiration and reference the fight!

Participate and build street demonstrations and strikes. Create unions and opposition where unions do not exist or are controlled by the employer and / or the governismo. The unemployed should join unions of their categories and social movements. Only through our struggle will be able to defend our rights.

REBUILD revolutionary syndicalism!
