(en) Why May Day matters to Malawi - History with anarchist roots

A-infos - May 2, 2014 - 1:40pm
Introduction ---- When we celebrate May Day, we rarely reflect on why it is a public holiday in Malawi or elsewhere. We want to share the powerful struggles that lie behind its existence and the organisations that created it and kept its meaning alive. May Day, international workers day, started as a global general strike commemorating five anarchist labour organisers executed in 1887 in the US. Mounting the scaffold, August Spies declared: ---- “If you think that by hanging us, you can stamp out the labour movement – the movement from which the downtrodden millions, the millions who toil and live in want and misery – the wage slaves – expect salvation – if this is your opinion, then hang us! Here you will tread upon a spark, but there, and there, and behind you and in front of you, and everywhere, flames will blaze up. It is a subterranean fire. You cannot put it out.” ...

No matter what gains we make in struggle, sooner or later employers and governments will try to roll them back. And no matter how much ground we give, employers and governments will only come back for more. The class war goes on, because whether we fight or we don’t, capital never stops fighting. The struggle will continue until we organise as a class, take the means of production into our own hands, and overthrow the entire capitalist system. Only workers’ revolution can end the class war and bring peace to the human race. ---- Chicago 1886 ---- May Day began in the United States, when Anarchist unions in Chicago called a general strike on 1 May 1886 to win the 8 hour day. A few days later, a bomb killed 7 police and 4 others at a protest connected with the campaign. In the ensuing witch hunt, eight Anarchist union organisers were arrested. They were convicted in a trial ...

(en) Beyond MayDay Celebrations: Towards a Viable Counter Movement in Nigeria by Warren McGregor - ZACF

A-infos - May 2, 2014 - 1:16pm
by Muttaqa Yushau Abdulra’uf, Sian Byrne, Warren McGregor and Lucien van der Walt The origin of May Day, International Workers Day, lies in the historic fight for decent working hours that culminated in the execution of four trade unionists in Chicago, the United States, in November 1887. This was a decisive moment in the struggle for a just society through militant trade unionism. In Nigeria, May Day was first declared in 1980 by the People’s Redemption Party (PRP)-led government of the late Abubakar Rimi in Kano State. ---- Therefore this article draws attention to the anarchist ethos of, first, building a people's counter culture to unravel the dominant class culture in the society and, second, building a counter-power that draws its energy from the trade unions, peasantry, the unemployed and the oppressed to change the world. ...

Launched on May Day 2012, Collective Action set out as a regroupment project concerned with rethinking the organisational structures and theoretical groundwork commonly found within the established anarchist milieu. Initially hoping to work with and regroup sections of this milieu, few beyond a variety of local projects have been perceptive to the questions Collective Action has tried to ask. The foremost stimulus for starting out in 2012 remains a key problematic we want to address: in 2011 riots swept large parts of urban Britain, yet the established left – whether institutional or contentious – was incapable of responding, intervening or organising within the space the riots opened up. We are adamant that this should not be the case again. ...

For far too long major segments of the working class have been dormant under the illusion that change can be delegated to exterior organizations or parties. When our struggles are bureaucratized and delegated to others, we lose ownership over them and in turn lose many benefits gained through them. A victory for the working class can only be established if our class is active in the struggle leading to victory. ---- From the battle for the 8 hour day, to the struggles witnessed this past year, these examples cry out for the need to organize the fight back against the war that is being waged on workers at home and abroad. Through these examples we can begin to see an alternate future and experiment towards it. This new workers' movement must be established on class struggle lines, a movement that no longer waits for politicians and bureaucrats to resolve the growing ...
