Hunger [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

Hunger W. H. Lewis. What drove the Hebrews from Egypt To march across the desert strip, Curse Pharaoh's law ignore his whip? Hunger! What moved the workingmen in France To march with sword and spear and lance, And take an almost hopeless chance? Hunger! What drives the girl into the street To sell her sex for food to eat, And dress her tired and wayward feet? Hunger ! What puts the 'tramp' upon the road, Denies him food, denies abode, And gives to us a newer code? Hunger! What causes man to go to war, To slay his brothers from afar, And dim the light of Freedom's Star? Hunger! What makes a flaming hell this earth, To curse the infant at its birth, And dry the fountain up of mirth? Hunger! What takes no thought of 'golden rules,' Puts to route reforming fools, And hurls to death the Priestly schools? Hunger! What made the beast destroy the man, Until the blood in torrents ran, And organized the Rebel Clan? Hunger! What is it will pass away, Upon some not far distant day, When we this...

Capitalistic "Humor" [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

Capitalistic 'Humor' The Parliamentary War Savings' Committee in England is issuing a ser ies of leaflets to the people on the subject of 'economy,' Leaflet No. 8 ends by telling the poor how to save, thus: — '(1) Eat less meal. (2) Be careful with your bread. (3) Waste nothing: to waste food is as bad as to waste munitions. (4) Use home products whenever possible ,and use them sparing ly. (b) Before you spend anything, think whether it is absolutely neces sary- to do so. (6) If you have the opportunity — grow your own vegetables, etc.' Telling the poor in England to eat less meat, to be careful with their bread and to waste nothing, is like telling a drowning man to keep afloat. The advice seems ironically superfluous. 'Grow your own vegetables — if you have the opportunity,' is another piece of sardonic humour that will doubtless appeal to the millions of slum-dwellers in London, Liverpool, Dublin, Glasgow and other large cit ies; but the gem of the lot is No. 5: 'Before you spend...

The World's Shirkers. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

The World's Shirkers. (A. Mack.) . We have fed you well for a thousand i years, I And you hail us still unfed, Tho' there's never a dollar of all your I wealth But marks the workers' dead. We have yielded our best to give you You lie on a crimson wool, Ah! if blood be the price of all your wealth, Good God, we have paid it in full. — Kipli.ng. For many months the paid agents and the kept press of the capitalist kingdom have been throwing that word SHIRKER as a degradation at the Australian worker, with the ob ject of tricking him to the trenches to spill his blood and waste himself in a fight on behalf of International Capital. It may be that many illin formed workers fell to the bait, and are now engaged in a war that is to democratise the world; but for the majority of workers in this continent to-day the word 'shirker' conveys no terrors. Every class-conscious worker 'here knows where the real shirkers are. Too well we have known for years who do all the shirking in the factories...

Tramwaymen WHY STRIKE? [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

Tramwaymen WHY STRIKE? Minister Estell, of the N.S.W. Lab or Government, puts on -airs at times worthy of any capitalist potentate. Questioned in the House of 'Parley' re tramway men's grievances, he pompously declared that no threats of a strike would have the slightest in fluence on him. listen Knows, or should know, that the workers do not talk btrike unless there are grave reasons for doing so. But this is the same Estell who is sued 800 summonses not very long ago upon the Maitland miners for be ing presumptuous enough to ask for better conditions, and the same Estei who a week or two ago refused to express an opinion upon the 'justice' of the claims of the slaves in tne Marrickville Woollen Mills, so noth ing better can be expected. Estell's pomposity simply means that he will refuse to listen to any demands from the workers which do not coincide with his own views. But greater men than Jack Estell, erst while wage-slave and now would-be dictator, have had to bow to the inev i...

"White Australia" In Theory and Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 13 November 1915

'White Australia' In Theory and Practice. According to a correspondent of the Sydney 'Morning Herald,' writing from Tokio, the capitalists of Japan are reaping a golden harvest from the war in Europe. So extensive are the orders pouring in from Russia, France and England, that a scarcity of lab our, notwithstanding all the Japanese millions, is imminent. The correspondent says: 'The en ormous purchases made by England have been quickly followed by orders almost as extensive from Australia and India, as well as from the Dutch East Indies.' Amongst these, we are told, Australia is the strongest customer. Dear, dear, and we thought this was a 'White Australia,' too. After all there seems to be a strong econmic motive for the exclusion of 'coloured' slaves from this fair, white continent. Contact with a more advanecd race might prompt Japan ese workers in this -country to de mand an equal standard of living; ex ploitation, therefore, becomes more easy in their native country where worki...

The Barker Fund. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 November 1915

The Barker Fund. Below will be found a list of sub scriptions since the last appeared in the issue of November 6th. As there is sufficient in hand to meet ail ex penses in connection with Barker's case, it becomes unnecessary for the fund to remain open loneer. How ever, any amounts that may arrive will be placed to the credit of the Bar ker Defence Committee, and utilised from time to time as circumstances demand, according to the discretion of the committee. This power has been granted to the committee by an advertised meeting of subscribers to the fund, and in those days of auto cratic mal-administration, it is essen tial that a fighting fund should be in existence. Hardly a week passes without prosecutions or rumors of them, and in cases where there are others dependent upon those that are placed behind bars and bolts, it is up to us to see Tnat the rebels of the future are not going to be stunted in their childhood days.

The Beer Strike. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 November 1915

The Beer Strike. ? * ? The Brewery employees have re turned to work and have left them selves in the gentle hands of the Ar bitration Court. If the court grants an increase of a few shillings a week, Trade Union officialdom will point to the fact as being another victory for the principle or Arbitration, tiaa me brewery workers not taken action on their own account, the Arbitration Court would not have troubled itself overmuch about their welfare; and in fixing the rates of pay and conditions of labour, the determining factor will be just how much the workers will take without kicking. They will get that; no more, and no less. The brewery employees can scarce ly be blamed for throwing up the sponge so early in the struggle, see ing the forces arrayed against them. They were compelled to place them selves at the mercy of an arbitration court judge, not because of the super ior economic power of their master, but because the latter took advantage of craft union organisation, and pitte...

Melbourne 'Argus' on Syndicalism. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 November 1915

Melbourne 'Argus' on Syndicalism. Melbourne 'Argus,' in its leading columns of November G, has a long and heart-stirring wail over Syndic * calism. \ Syndicalism, we are told, 'thrives only in a free community. It pros pers because it preys on the t'ree 3; - dom of a free people. Like a vain ? ' \% f.ire, it feeds only on living men and ?.vomen.' This conclusion is arrived at by the 'Argus' after reading the report of Lloyd George's speech at the Bri tish 'Tra.de Union Congress where that gentleman roundly condemned ' those workers who adopt a 'deliber- ate restriction of the output.' Such restriction, according to the 'Argus,' is 'both dishonourable and suicidal.' The reason why it is dishonourable in the eyes of the 'Argus' is obvious. - But if it is suicidal, one would think that the capitalist press would leave it to the workers to find this out for themselves. 'The workers have been told,' re marks the 'Argus,' 'that this is a capitalists' war, that their work goes to enrich ca...

The W. P. Army MISS. PANKHURST'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 November 1915

The W. P. Army ? ? ? MISS PANKHUflST'S VISIT. Misses Pankhurst and John, organ iser and secretary of the Women's Peace Army will arrive in Sydney on Friday, tLe 19th instant, to deliver lectures. At present there is some slight dif ficulty in getting a suitable hall tor the lectures, owing, we presume, to the bigoted aad benighted attitude of the capitalist press, and the ultra patriots towards anyone who is working towards an early peace. As soon as the hall is decided up on, the name and dates will be well advertised. Tne lectures will be 'Down with Germany,' and 'The Price of Empire.' The recent howl set up by the kept press in their re views of Miss Pankhurst's new book, 'Put up the Sword,' should go a long way towards packing Miss Pank hurst's meetings to the doors. Radicals, anti-militarists, indus trialists, Socialists, and anticon scriptionists should co-operate to make the meetings successful as far as possible. A large quantity of Miss Pankhurst's book will be on sale, and...

The figures were: --Horse, GOO lbs. of effort; mule, 500 lbs.; ass, 360 lbs.; man, 150 lbs.

Editor, "Direct Action." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 November 1915

Editor, 'Direct Action.' Allow me through your columns to congratulate your paper, which is a vital need in times like these. Your denunciation of labour members and conscription deserves highest praise, for the Joins:;- of tho^n have of iate made the blood boil in all true lab orites. In a crisis as this we see our foes in their true colours among the labor members we have elected. Our false and cruellest foes who have got their votes under false pretences. Their avarice and tyranny exceeds that of the capitalists, for the capitalist is a sincere and open rogue, but these La bor members are rogues and robbers and traitors of the Judas type. While feathering their own nests, the workingman is worse off than ever. The Labor Party is at present rotten to the core, and must be resisted and exposed. They are at present engag ed in wild harangues and threats of conscription; we are accused of hid ing behind the excuse of Germans being employed in the public service. They prate of our rig...
