We urge all anarchists, socialists and working class radicals in the Bournemouth area to support this action and get this despicable practice shut down once and for all!
Posted on Dorset IWW
A local Co-operative store in Bournemouth has chosen to sign up to use the exploitative practice of Workfare or government work programme.
IWW Dorset are outraged that a store that promotes itself as an “ethical employer” is prepared to put fellow workers jobs at risk, as well as paying the workfare participant less than minimum wage.
We demand that Co-operative put an immediate end to this exploitative practice and offer the workfare participant a contract of employment and treat them as an equal team member.
As such we are proposing a rolling picket to inform customers of the situation and allow them to make up their own minds what action they are prepared to take if any.
We are therefore looking for volunteers to man the picket, handing out leaflets at convenient times between 7am and 11pm ongoing as and when people are available.
The picket will operate at any times when we can get 3 or more people to man it.
Leaflets and guidance will be provided for all volunteers.
If you want to help with this action please be in touch, in the first instance by emailing email@example.com with any availability. Someone will then be in contact with you with further details and rota slots will be prepared.
Solidarity – See you on the streets!
Protest march of Yazidi women in the Sinjar Mountains on the first anniversary of the Islamic State group massacre
Having suffered a traumatic genocide, Yazidi women on Mount Sinjar mobilize their autonomous armed and political resistance with the PKK’s philosophy.
SHENGAL – The old Kurdish saying “We have no friends but the mountains” became more relevant than ever when on Aug. 3, 2014, the murderous Islamic State group launched what is referred to as the 73rd massacre on the Yazidis by attacking the city of Sinjar (in Kurdish: Shengal), slaughtering thousands of people, and raping and kidnapping the women to sell them as sex slaves. Ten thousand Yazidis fled to the Shengal Mountains in a death march in which they, and especially children, died of hunger, thirst, and exhaustion. This year on the same day, the Yazidis marched in the Shengal Mountains again. But this time in a protest to vow that nothing will ever be the same again.
Last year, the Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) promised the people to guarantee Shengal’s safety, but ran away without warning when the Islamic State group attacked, not even leaving arms behind for people to defend themselves. Instead, it was the guerrilla of the PKK, as well as the the Kurdish People’s Defence Units, or YPG, and its women’s brigade the YPJ from Rojava, who in spite of having Kalashnikovs and a only handful of fighters, opened a corridor to Rojava, rescuing 10,000 people. … Read full article at teleSUR.
And to the commenter (on youtube) ‘socialist worker’, (we doubt you are either) – Not if we get to you first mush, fuck off back to the 20th century and wallow in your abject failure to live up to your own propaganda.
Have a look at them, sorry-arsed fascist without the bollocks to own up to it.
Soon our class will have nothing to rely to rely on but mutual aid, fuck all those aspiring petty bourgeois, they can just eat each other.
