This is a struggle which, if lost, will probably result in far greater repression and tyranny than workers in the region already face, in towns and on the land. It is also one in which class-consciousness and the class struggle must remain at the forefront of anarchist responses.

If translated by their substantive nature, proves to be the condition of government who campaigned alongside 10 parties, although oligarchic hide captions on TV and Radio programs. Now the 3rd shift exceeds streaks of absurd and deals with the kidnapping of the agenda by right, with a straight cancha race between the Plateau (or Dilma and Lula, more properly said) and the neo-liberal opposition, betting the match to see who lines up more confident way with the prescription of "market confidence resumed." In this unfortunate race, meets predominant ...
