"I repeat that I am an enemy of the order today and again with all my might, while I can
breathe, I will fight. ---- I despise this world. I despise, its order, its laws, its
authority backed by force. Hang me for that. " ---- Louis Lingg - One of the Martyrs of
Chicago ----- Bastilles SHALL TAKE ... STRUGGLES ARE LEADING ... --- In some social
history dates are references required as May 1, closely linked to the demand for
eight-hour day and our fellow Chicago anarchists hanged in 1886, victims of capitalist
barbarism. ---- Since its inception on May 1 has experienced many vicissitudes: May 1st
bloodied Fourmies in 1891 ... ---- to large masses and parades of floats assaults of the
former Union "Soviet" ... through the unit rallies 1936-1937 that led the workers' revolt
in the dead politician ... ferociously repressed demonstrations in Barcelona by Franco's
henchmen ... Santiago by Pinochet torturers ... in Ankara by the fascist soldiery ...
Warsaw by bureaucrats "communist" ... to Tiananmen by the "red" army tanks of the same
name, the red blood of the workers ...
25 years ago, in 1988, Le Pen decided to celebrate the "Holy Maid" a week earlier.
Provocation made his bed as fascists marched with impunity in the streets of the capital
and elsewhere, and even allow themselves to attack all those and all those they consider
"undesirable", "étrang-st-st-s" or "different-es" ...
But, after all seventy-two years ago (in 1941), a senile old man had indeed discovered
that his party fell that day: St. Philippe Petain as it was. He made this day of protest
Capital and arbitrary state, a Labor Day decorated with lilies.
A RADICAL AND REVOLUTIONARY DIMENSION.
From the outset, the 1st of May was a radical and revolutionary dimension. A central
concern of all these beings excluded, dispossessed, exploited, alienated by those in power
and capital (the "gangs" haves and profiteers): FREEDOM and EQUALITY!
Both claims were scoring depth, all their rebellions, all moments of challenge they would
lead to the overthrow of the authoritarian social order, arbitrariness and injustice built
into a system.
A FREEDOM equal for all and in all fields, because they understood that freedom without
equality could only be fictional ...
A creative and dynamic EQUALITY for all individuals and groups, because without freedom,
equality would lead to uniformity and depersonalization.
ALL and ALL of these wrestlers wrestlers of the past wanted equality, as a condition of
freedom and development and vice versa.
In history, anarchists have always mobilized to demand, above all, the right to be
themselves, free individuals, worthy, accountable, constantly trying to create a society
free from exploitation, oppression, stateless and without violence.
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, we see ourselves as heirs.
We still have the same desire for liberation, although for some it may seem "utopian."
In an era made of delicate balances and statism triumphant freedom for which we fight,
will be meaningful only if it can be combined with autonomy and the right to difference
individuals in the acceptance of their singularities.
The company that the old world has left us, and continues to impose on us, and yet we
still offer the same revenue. Old reheated meals that are hierarchical, economic and
social injustices, exclusions sexual ethnic, cultural type, nationalist and warrior
values, hypocrisy and religious make-denial and acceptance of the human injustice ...
This menu government canteens, they are the right singular, plural left or the extreme
right rotten ...
THIS COMPANY, WE DO NOT WANT MORE!
We do not want more of this world, where the only options available to us, debase men and
women to the status of the animal. If fascism is the negation of freedom, declare loudly
that liberalism is the negation of humanity that capitalism is the economic chaos that
politicking is the abandonment of individual sovereignty ... that the State did not
social misery in the general indifference and complicity of the political representation
of all colors.
We do not want us produce in the public arena on the spectacular fashion, as well as
'partners' political or social, which, at most, makes us partners among others.
THIS WHAT WE WANT TO GO ...
We need to organize ourselves in our daily lives. All the places where we live and where
we meet, we offer a wide range of experimentation of free society that we all want to.
The realization of the free society goes through the experiences of collective
neighborhood, alternative spaces - be they social, cultural, educational - unions
"revolutionary" rather than reformist, class of unemployed and precarious etc ...
The revolution has become a vital necessity.
Reformism, once alternative to liberal project collapsed.
Areas of freedom that we have to create or conquer does not register in the continuity of
the current society. They exist in a break with it.
The task is complex and exciting. Unify our individual and collective efforts to get out
of the Middle Ages and politician barbarism.
