Pamphlet: We want a new society - and don’t we need it!

We wrote the final part of our vulgar system-series about 'social alternatives'. We compiled the whole series into a pamphlet - see attachment. Feel free to comment and/or share...

Another solidarity network/IWW case - A potential for a strategic leap

The following case reveals the strategical potential of solidarity networks: to create links between individual proletarians in structurally weak positions and the world of workers’ power in big workplaces.

Few thoughts on democratic socialism - Introduction to a pamphlet on class struggle under Allende‘s government, Chile 1973

We want to present a pamphlet written by comrades of ours about class struggle and the social democratic government under Allende in Chile in 1973. Chile is one of many examples in history that shows us that the relation between working class movements and left governments is more complicated than the mechanistic picture of force (movement) and container/stabiliser (government) often painted by current democratic socialists.

Trico - A victory to remember, The 1976 equal pay strike at Trico Folberth, Brentford, by Sally Grovers and Vernon Merritt. Great book on an important women-led strike in 1976. We summarise the main events and then share some thoughts on struggles for 'equal pay'.

System Series - Part Four - A history of revolutions

This is a draft for the fourth part of our system series - it will be published in our local workers’ paper WorkersWildWest. We want to write something basic about the system we live in and the possibility of social revolution - for our colleagues. We don’t want to compromise on the complexity of the issue and we try to avoid lefty jargon. Let us know what you think and we can re-work the draft:

Short comments on Mike Davis’ “Old Gods and New Enigmas - Notes on Revolutionary Agency”

We decided to read and discuss Mike’s text because the question he is asking is a pertinent one: ‘who can become a social force of revolution?’ By looking at what constituted revolutionary agency during the peak-time of working class radicalism between 1870 and 1920, we can perhaps better assess our chances in the present.

Looking forward in anger - AngryWorkers’ review of 2018 and plans for the new year

Comrades,

2019 will be a good one! The political honchos from left to right are in chaos, the crisis is sharpening. What we need are independent working class initiatives that combine self-defense against bosses and their lackeys with a vision of social emancipation. There ain't no shortcuts!
