(en) Serbia, Press release concerning failure of presidential elections

From "Inicijativa za anarho-sindikat" <inicijativa@inicijativa.org>

      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Following press release by Initiative for anarcho-syndicate 
(IAS), anarcho-syndicalist organization from Serbia, was sent to 
the media as a comment to failed presidential elections. 
Elections in Serbia failed because there was not enough people 
participating. IAS started anti-election campaign, several weeks 
ago, all over Serbia. 


    Initiative for anarcho-syndicate (IAS) is greeting all the 
workers who saw through hypocrisy and artificiality of the 
system and refused to participate in spectacle which is called 
    For centuries now, our masters are teaching us about 
obedience and fulfilling of our "duties" which they imposed 
upon us; our "citizen duty" should enable them legitimate 
robbery of fruits of our work. Sure, there are those who 
boycotted elections for other reasons, but it is oblivious that 
huge amount of people is disappointed by politics which is 
placed upon us as only possible. Nationalists, liberals, two sides 
of the same coin: failure of the elections is a clear message. We 
don't want lies, we don't want hypocrisy and promises for 
buying cheap opportunist political points.

    Future forcing of elections would mean that will of workers is 
not respected, workers which clearly said that they don't want to 
be part of spectacle, workers who recognized that offered choice 
is not a choice at all, because all we can chose is some kind of 
evil. While capitalist economy is destroying and killing all that is 
humane in us, while State is locking us up, beating us, 
marginalizing us, subordinate and punish us, while it is 
protecting interests of capitalists - there can be no talks about 
reforms of the system. System must be destroyed, and all 
protagonists of that system of injustice must face punishments 
for enabling and forcing of inhumane economy and nationalism. 
It is all the same for us, if they offer this or that person for 
"president", "representative" or "expert": they are all servants of 
the system which we want to destroy, and least that we can do is 
to refuse to vote.

    What about nonexistent and low pays? What about those 
workers who have been fired and locked out? We are not going 
to fall for political games and elections - we saw through that 
game and we are refusing to wait in line like slaves and servants. 
We said what we taught - and local politicians can like it or not - 
don't play with our will and lives: we refused to vote, but that is 
only the first step. It is not boycott of some political parties - it is 
boycott of whole, sick, artificial system!

    You can call, once again, new elections, and not notice that 
we already twice said "no", but be sure that your time is gone. 
We are going to tear and throw to fire all parties, politicians and 
capitalists. Our time is coming!

Death to the State and capitalism!

Long live Liberty!
