Hastings Solidarity Federation launch meeting Tuesday, 9 October 2012

Hastings Solidarity Federation launch meeting

Our members in Hastings are launching a new Local. Tuesday, 9 October 2012 at 19:00, venue tbc. There is a Facebook event here.

If you’re interesting in joining the Solidarity Federation, or you’re just curious what we’re about, please come along.

The Solidarity Federation (‘SolFed’) is a revolutionary union initiative: a working class organisation which seeks the abolition of capitalism and the state. If you’re a worker (employed, unemployed, disabled, retired…) and think that this life doesn’t give you everything you deserve and that your work does not let you develop yourself, if you want a world without capitalism and hierarchy, then there are good reasons to join the Solidarity Federation.

You can also get in touch with SolFed members in Hastings via the site contact form

Lib-dem conference and Anarchy in Brighton.

    

The start of this year’s Libdem conference was met by a noisy march and demo called by Brighton Stop the Cuts and the local Trades Council. Speeches followed, the final one being given by a member of the Solidarity Federation who called on those present to join us in shutting down workfare in Brighton. For the rest of the afternoon, the centre of town was dominated by anarchosyndicalists, their friends and comrades. Red and black flags and banners were ubiquitous the length of London road as members of SF locals Brighton, Bristol, Croydon, North London, Solent, South London and Thames Valley picketed workfare parasites and handed out thousands of leaflets to the staff and shoppers. Two branches of Poundland were picketed along with Argos, Costa’s Coffee, Primark, and Superdrug. We were also graced with a visit from Brighton’s lonely fascist photographer who fucked off after a group of anarchists decided to picket him.

Sound + Noise

Just a few weeks ago, an FBI task force raided a home* in Portland, Oregon very early in the morning. They broke down the front door with a battering ram and threw in a stun grenade, which is non-lethal but produces a very loud and disorienting noise and a blinding bright light. The team locked down the building and secured the sleepy, compliant occupants. The operation was one of several which also occurred in Olympia, WA and Seattle, WA, involving some 60-80 officers.

Just who were these dangerous criminals, these domestic terrorists whose threat level is so high that an FBI team with stun grenades, battering rams, and assault rifles needed to burst into their homes in the wee hours of the morning?

Why, it’s these two young folks,

and Matt Duran:

Reportedly, the FBI search warrant was for black clothing, paint, sticks, computers and cell…

Australian Dominos Drivers: Bristol Solidarity Federation Action

   

Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation’s (Australia), call for action, saw Bristol SF picket the Dominos store on Whiteladies Road, Bristol. This solidarity action was in support of the campaign for wage justice for delivery drivers who have had their wages cut 19% arbitrarily by Domino’s Pizza Enterprises management.

The Bristol Local members held the red and Black banner across the store’s door and handed out leaflets to passers-by. We had taken time to explain to the workers inside the store the reasons for our solidarity action and gave them a copy of our leaflet. Our anger is against profiteers who steal from workers not other workers.

Our actions soon attracted the attention of Dominos management. Sent out to investigate was the companies regional manager. He accussed us of not understanding that his company is a francise and not being directly related to the Australian company had no control over their pay policy. We insisted that any attacks on a member of the IWA would not be tolerated. His company trades under the same logo as the Australian company and therefore had to share some corporate responsiblity. How Dominos organises the structure of their stores is of no interest to us. We were later informed that news of our protest had been passed on to the UK master francise holder.

Two other interesting conversation happened outside of the store. Firstly, an Australian women came and thanked us for showing soldarity with Australian workers. She told us that on returning home, she would share news of our action on the Melbourne community radio station she works at, so we know the message of our support will get back to Australia.

The next offer of support came from the Bristol West Labour Party’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate. We explained to her how we wouldn’t be voting labour! She was last seen cycling away indignantly shouting “I don’t have blood on my hands” and “I wasn’t even in the Labour Party in 2003” Clearly rattled when it was mentioned how Blair had bombed the hell out of Iraq. Shame we won’t get that promised link from her website now.

Across the world other actions have taken place. Currently we have news of protests held by FAU in front of Domino’s Pizza in Langenfeld and Bonn. While the CNT-AIT (France) took the message to stores in Caen, Clermont, the Paris
region and Toulouse.
