14-N Towards World Permanent General Strike.
In the current context is meaningless stop working a single day. State and companies are capable to absorb its efects and make it harmful to workers that support the strike. The only solution in sight is a permanent and active general strike. But in this globalized world the response must be gobal. Single acts in a country don't have effects in the market economy. Similar situations in hundred of countries allow the coordination. As simple as stablish a common date, 14-N.
Translation from the Article of La rebelion de las palabras: About the 14-N next General Strike
We have no magic bullet (or want). What we know is that something goes wrong here. When you wake up every morning before sunrise to let life go on a low-paying gigs, bound to rush, schedule and boredom. When you see on TV professionals of lying talk about violence but shut its origin, because they give more importance to a few broken windows of establishments owned by multinational killer, that the life of hard workers who falls from scaffolds because the employer has decided to speculate with the money that could have been serve to implement safety measures in the work. When you go to the supermarket and remind that prices have gone up VAT again. When TV advertising makes you empty desires and whispers in your ear that you are nothing by not having the latest model of mobile phone, or larger TV with 3-D ultra-realistic surround sound system. When politics do not accomplish his campaign promises and you, quietly, saying also "bastards, you should explode". When you are so sick as we are. Sick to swallow, to silence, to continue to forward as if nothing is happening.
We are not that anti-system that everyone speaks but very few knows. We are your sons, your brothers, your classmate or work partner, your neighborg. We are so fuck as you, and understand everything you feel, because we also suffer it, but we have disenchanted with the false promises of capitalism, because one thing is clear: With this system there is no possible dawn. The class counterattack requires generalized and transform once and for all the fear in anger, desires in actions and words in facts.
- Becouse one-day strikes and demostrations moving flags will not change anything (and it is time to understand).
- Becouse, whatever its conditions, wage labor disgusts us by its nature and definition.
- Because domesticated labor unions are not the solution but part of the problem, and do not represent us.
- Because banking strangles us with the complicity of political parties who claim to speak in our name and on are only dedicated to deal with our future impoverishing our lives.
- Because we do not care if police are also upset. They are not in our side and will ever be. They are the enemy of working class to beat, and work to keep the panopticon that locks and choking us, and of course, not deserve to give them flowers.
- Because this is not only going to change by itself. Social-domocratics illusions do not convince us.
- Because we do not need anyone to tell us what we must do. We will build by ourselves the alternatives that we need and want, not the imposed. Asamblearism, horizontality and direct action against delegationism, bureaucracy and hierarchy.
On November 14, all the comrades meet in the street, to remind to real guilty of this crisis (banks polítics, not immigrants or unemployed crowd) who holds to whom. Let barricades and fires sabotage bourgeois illusions of reformism and collaborationist syndicalism and let flames light up the feeling of revolt we all carry in our hearts for our dreams to travel to the existing fires in Greece, Chile, Portugal or Italy, whose smoke signals communicate our desires and can become the third (and final) assault of proletarians to class society.
We have lost patience, time, and future. Only fear last.
Do by yourself and organize as you fit. While misery remains there will be rebellion.
