The bosses must not be allowed to win this. Punitive direct action should be taken.

Displaying it is a valuable sign of solidarity with your postie who has effectively been banned from striking in what can only be seen as a politically motivated High Court judgement.

CWU’s voice of defiance rings out around the country

Tonight, the CWU stands absolutely united in their anger at Royal Mail bosses and the High Court following today’s “outrageous” decision to invalidate our overwhelming Yes vote and enormous turnout.

While our national leadership was speaking out in central London, our representatives from around the country spoke with one voice – a voice of steadfast defiance.

From the North East, divisional rep Steve Warren said: “This verdict today is the establishment sticking together to throw democracy in the bin.”

And he slammed the false claims made by senior management in…

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

Angry Workers of the World

GettyImages-1177970611_0The current system is in crisis, everyone can see this. What we cannot see is an alternative. We wrote this pamphlet for a discussion about alternatives. The first step is to understand where we are coming from, how the current system emerged. We then have to get to grips with how the system works, or rather, how it makes us work. There would be no alternative to this system if it would not show clear signs of crisis – so we have to know what actually causes this crisis. There would be no alternative if those who are exploited and oppressed would not have tried to fight for a better society. We have to learn from those who came before us. 

We don’t write this as experts. We write it as workers, who don’t just want to stare into the headlights of global events as victims. If we don’t…

London: Fascist Attack At Pie ‘n’ Mash Squat in Deptford

squat.net

Last night, Saturday the 9th of November, two bonehead hooligans kicked in the front windows of the Pie ‘n’ Mash squatted community cafe in Deptford, London.

After stomping around the streets of Deptford in the last weeks, and even entering the squat twice previously, the two hooligans demanded to be let in, in order to beat up the squatters, and then proceeded to put their steel-toes through the front door before scarpering as support arrived from upstairs.

The boneheads had been seen the night before in the off-licence (liquor store) abusing the owners, calling them taliban and making homophobic jibes, and seem to think they have a free reign of an area that has for many years been a stronghold of multiculturalism and antifascist community. We have since spoken to the shop owners who are excited to be part of organising against these wannabe-nazis, and we will be coordinating with anarchists, antifascists, and neighbourhood groups to keep these scum off our streets.

Get in touch with the Pie ‘n’ Mash squat at squatcafe [at] riseup [dot] net to help with the neighbourhood outreach.

Fuck the fash. We are antifash pie ‘n’ mash.
