Sabotage - Emile Pouget

Emile Pouget's seminal text on militant working class direct action.

Submitted by Ed on November 19, 2010

"Since the day a man had the criminal ability to profit by another man's labour, since that very same day the exploited toiler has instinctively tried to give to his master less than was demanded from him. In this wise the worker was unconsciously doing SABOTAGE, demonstrating in an indirect way the irrepressible antagonism that arrays Capital and Labor one against the other."
