(en) Slovakia, priama akcia: Open meetings with the association Direct action continues [machine translation]
Mon, 29 Jun 2020 09:09:04 +0300
The pandemic forced us to interrupt open meetings, but we are back with the news! See you on Monday, June 29, at 6:00 pm in Bystra,
Bratislava, exactly four months after the last meeting, where we presented a publication about our workplace disputes . It will be available
this time as well. And along with it, campaign stickerswhich is our response to the coronary crisis. We assume that this will be one of the
main topics at the meeting. As a matter of priority, however, we would like to talk about how we could help each other to solve problems in
the region and how to support activities that are already under way. If you have a point in the discussion, you can let us know in advance
and especially come in person. In the rest of the text you will find more information about the meeting.
Practical overlap of meetings
By practical overlap we mean activities that arise as a result of meeting. In recent months, it has been, for example,participation in a
climate strike or international solidarity .
However, we are also interested in more general debates. For example, we have previously dealt with three topics: psychological coercion in
the workplace, slander and damage to goodwill, in response from the employer . Thanks to the meetings, we found out how to better defend
ourselves against our superiors, and we then used the ideas in the disputes of our association. So we got better acquainted with the issue
and we published tips and tricks for the practice and struggles of workers on the website.
Meetings can also be used to solve specific problems in the workplace. The disputes we have had against companies in recent years ( see, for
example, the article on three disputes in gastronomy ) also began with meetings to discuss possible solutions and prepare an action plan.
We do not specify what topics will be discussed. They depend on you. They do not have to relate only to workplaces or problems that are
being solved by the Direct Action Association.
Can anyone come?
Direct action is an anarcho-syndicalist union and we do not cooperate with political parties or pro-parliamentary initiatives. When we say
that we do not specify topics and we are interested in a class approach, we mean constructive activities and policies that call into
question political parties, the principle of representation, capital and the state.
If you perceive it as we do, we will be happy to see you in Bystra on Monday, June 29. If you're interested in a different approach or
you're in charge of a political party, security forces or someone, you'd better stay home. If you let us know about yourself from a region
other than Bratislava, we may know other people in your region with whom you could connect.
What we expect We
would like the meetings to contribute to the development of class-oriented activities (for a better understanding, we recommend looking at
this link to a short text about the class - https://priamaakcia.sk/Kapitalizmus-trieda-a-triedny-boj-pre- non-complete-beginners-.html ).
If you have your own ideas of what would be worth discussion and activity, we welcome them. We are curious what problems you are interested
in, what you think could be improved in the region, what annoys you, or how we could organize more efficiently.
Current general hygiene rules in
Bystra * Maximum 5 people inside Bystra - try to keep a distance of 2 meters.
* Drapery mandatory when handling food and indoors.
* Eating will only be allowed outdoors and we recommend bringing your own containers.
* Wash your hands immediately after entering Bystra - with chemical or soap and water (we have running water, it's up to you).
* If you feel symptoms of the disease, please stay home. It's better for you and for us.
Actions will be done primarily outside. This means that if the weather is very bad, they will have to be postponed. Even outside in the
yard, we will try to be considerate of those who have greater hygiene requirements. For example, if someone does not feel well when others
around do not have a veil, we will ask everyone to have it outside. Therefore, please always have it with you.
We look forward to meeting you on Monday, June 29th!
