In Struggle In Solidarity
AUTONOMOUS WORKERS BLOC @ Mayday March
12noon Clerkenwell green, London
This Mayday we march under the banner of the Autonomous Workers Bloc as we are increasingly alienated from the trade union structures where they exist and have grown to find that these very structures are more to do with the management of efficient, disciplined workers for exploitation rather than the liberation from work and the destruction of capitalism and state machinary. No trade union or political party which seeks power can represent the desires of our existence. We are autonomous because we seek as a pre-requisite to any struggle the disengagement from hierarchical structures. We are autonomous as a way of struggle which are the lessons of over 200 years of working class history. We march with red and black flags, the flags of the CNT, the flags of the anarchist social fighters which have fouhgt not only against fascism in the earliar period of the 20th Century but also against police, politician, judge, stalinist and capitalists and in these days are at the frontlines of social and civil insurrection from the streets of Oaxaca, Mexico to the univeristy campuses of Greece and France and who attempt as we do in the harsh realitties of the urban jungles to develop and widen social antagonisms against this barbaric system.
We march on the streets as a show of our resistance, as an appeal for action and as a celebration with working class people across the globe who struggle for a better world.
