SUPPORT THE STRIKES

These days those with jobs must consider themselves the unemployed-in-waiting. The greed crazed gamblers of global capitalism have dumped us into crisis and now only the rich can feel secure about the future. Job cuts, wage cuts, cuts to benefits and pensions; were told (by the wealthy and powerful) that these attacks are necessary and for our own good. We are supposed to be realistic.

 But we should tell them to stuff their realism we see our families, communities and workplaces under attack while the rich get richer. The need to defend ourselves- thats the realism we have to recognise. Lets break down some of the barriers that separate us and turn us against one another; unemployed/employed, private sector/public sector, we all face the same potential fate.

IN WORK OR OUT OF WORK, WE HAVE A COMMON ENEMY

Today's strikes are a clear sign of growing anger and can be a useful lesson in solidarity. They also give us a chance to meet and to recognise our common interests and our common enemy. These cuts are happening across the world in response to demands by global bankers, and everywhere workers and unemployed are taking to the streets. They are forming assemblies, challenging union demarcations and controls and staying on the streets to discuss and organise resistance to the unreasonable and irresponsible demands of the mega-rich. We should follow that example.
