With the crisis and austerity ---- emphasis is theft who works ---- The flagship brand of capitalism is the private ownership and individual, by the employers and businesses of capital gains generated from work so collective. Over the last century and a half, through their class organizations, many of them inspired by anarchist and anarcho-syndicalist workers have succeeded better working conditions, safety, wages and social protection. That is what, to deceive pacóvios, class possidente calls "welfare state". But in fact, it has nothing to do with the "State" and much less with any "welfare state" (in which the two terms are contradictory).

It has rather to do with the struggle and achievements of millions of workers around the world who, over generations, united and organized, able to obtain better working conditions and better pay, in default of so-called "savage capitalism" that prevailed early industrial period and that is still prevalent today in almost all of Asia, Africa and Latin America. With higher wages could pay more taxes to support systems such as health, education, social protection (unemployment, pensions, etc.)..

In Europe and North America, where
social and labor movements had
and greater emphasis could get bigger
benefits for workers, times
today are, however, of indentation. Of
decline in social rights, wages,
the hours and working conditions.
The "crisis" is to give a major jeitão
economic and business groups
that even in a shrinking market,
continue to accumulate massive profits.
The largest fortunes continue to grow and
the gap between the richest and the poorest,
across Europe and North America,
is constantly increasing.

In Portugal, the strategy of impoverishment
carried out by the current government
view a worker becomes a hand
to work increasingly expensive working
increasingly longer hours and with less rights and
less access to health, education,
housing.

The pretext of "crisis" is accentuated transfer
wealth and rights of those
works into the pockets of capitalists,
bankers and businessmen, an experi-
ca revanchist counterrevolution, against which
unions are complacent majority.
trying to popular discontent
be channeled into the fight políticopartidária
(That are faithful clerks) and
not develop an independent project
of struggle, resistance and confrontation by
maintenance and expansion of the rights of
workers.

At a time close to dozens of companies
and that thousands of workers
are being made redundant is urgent to build
an alternative revolutionary union,
anarcho-syndicalist, which brings to the debate
and to practice everyday issues as
relevant as self-management or direct action.
That put the social revolution in
agenda and to make the new / old
harbingers of capitalism understand that
capitalist system is definitely the
end of story and that another world is possible.
