Wukan Peasant Victory Sets Stage For Chinese Turmoil

04-01-2012 17:23

Villagers building barricades in an effort to prevent police attack
The villagers of Wukan in south-east China appear to have won a victory over the misnamed Communist Party regime, and prevented the sale of some communal land. This triumph is the result of direct action, direct democracy, and the community's ability to get the word out, in spite of government censorship. These factors will be crucial in 2012, as factory workers come into conflict with multinational corporations in the cities.

Why Liam Byrne is Misleading on the Beveridge Settlement

03-01-2012 17:35

Beveridge shored up the ruling class by proposing concessions to workers
Seventy years ago, William Beveridge's Report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Social Insurance and Allied Services was presented to Parliament. The Report had a huge influence on policy, effectively providing a blueprint for the social democratic 'welfare state'. Though far from a revolutionary document, it still proposed far-reaching reforms, which were huge concessions to the working class following the struggles of the first Great Depression and World War Two.

Which way forward for the 99%? General Strike 1st May 2012!

01-01-2012 12:30

Build Power & Show Power through Mass Participatory Bold Action

To show our power, on May 1st, 2012, we will be organizing for such a mass participatory and bold collective action: a national general strike, mass boycott, student strike/ walk-out and mass day of action. We will be organizing within our unions- or informal workplace organizations where there’s no union or the union isn’t supportive- to hold a one-day general strike. Where a strike is not possible, we will be organizing people to call in sick, or take a personal day, as part of a coordinated “sick-out”. Those who are students will be walking-out of their schools (or not showing up in the first place). In the community, we will be holding a mass boycott and refusing to make any purchase on that day.

We, the 99%, will build our power and show our power until we've occupied our workplaces, our communities, our schools, our lives, our world... until we've occupied everything!
