(en) Czech, afed: My si kapitalismus nevybrali -- Address of the Anarchist Federation on today's May Day meeting on Strelecký Island [machine translation]

Date Sat, 5 May 2018 12:04:04 +0300


The first of May, in its beginnings, was the fighting of the working class, the demonstration of its strength, the desires and the determination. Every year, here on Strelecký Island, we recall the first meeting of the workers in the first of May, which took place in 1890, and the attendance exceeded all expectations. There were also anarchist socialists, anarchists. And we are here today to carry on their banner of hope and defiance. Black in his negation of the current authoritarian order, capitalism that binds one against another. Red in its fervor for the idea of a better world, which operates on the principles of solidarity, equality and cooperation. There are fewer orders than here, but our battalion still winds in the wind.
It would be amazing to join this day to live mass struggles to improve the conditions of working, unemployed, retired, students and other underprivileged. Unfortunately, no such movement is here, despite the meritorious activity of various social, environmental and anti-racist initiatives and collectives. But we would not be anarchists and anarchists if we were to throw a flinth into rye before this fact and resign to our goals. And so today we look with interest in the streets of Paris, which reminds of the 50th anniversary of the famous days when the workers started the strike and the students built in the streets of the barricade. A similar unification of struggles has taken place in France in recent months - students, railroads, postmen, and others are coordinating their struggles and supporting each other. Environmental activists and anarchists, hand in hand with local farmers on tractors, resist the huge police attack on the autonomous ZAD area near Notre-Dame-des-Landes at the cost of numerous injuries. Their struggle has received huge expressions of solidarity in many French cities, but also abroad. As internationalists who reject artificially created borders between people, we are the spirit in Paris, and some of us are physically present today. Likewise, we are today a spirit with thousands and millions of people who have gone out into the streets to enjoy their rights, since they will never give them no fight. we are the spirit in Paris and some of us are physically today.

Yes, we feel part of the whole-planet movement for global justice, to eliminate the catastrophic raid of the capitalist order that destroys individuals and society and has a devastating impact on natural ecosystems. Freedom and social justice are universal principles for us that we apply to all the underprivileged. Applying them only to members of one race or ethnicity is a great deception, return and deepening of oppression and injustice. It is as obvious as nationalism infected the Czech parliamentary left. Both the Social Democrats and the Communists, in their recent ascents, have been de facto strengthened in these reactionary positions and confirmed that they are no progressive force that it would be worthwhile to support. And why also choose some representatives, whether they are in the political spectrum anywhere. According to their policies and so,
But we are standing where our predecessors, the socialists do not depend, in 1890 - we demand the end of political and economic oppression by one another, we demand equality in all spheres of life. We refuse to take part in the current order, where short-term profits take precedence over the urgency of the climate tragedy, weapons trade in front of people's lives, cheap goods before working conditions, police repression before free-lance alternatives. We did not choose capitalism. Our choice is a free and self-governing society without unnatural authority.
