Job Pointers. INDUSTRIAL JIU JITSU. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 25 December 1915

Job Pointers. INDUSTRIAL JTU JITSU Sabotage is a toe-iioid on ihe cap*. ^ talist system; the general strike is a ''? strangle hold. The bout is just starting. Ring the bell ! THE I.W.W.'s. Masters fear us. Apologists execrate us. Reactionaries belittle us. But the Sab Cat loves us and the One Big Union grows. Kismet! VIOLENCE. Violence in the Class Struggle is the attempt of Labor to make :ip with blind force what it lacks in in telligence. The real need is not for more force but for more skilful ap plication of force. No power on earth is as great as that of the pro ducers of the world's wealth 'on the job.' Efficient organisation backed up with the high-pressure fighting tactics of the I.W.W. will make vio lence as antiquated as the blunder buss. SABOTAGE. It is true that Sabotage is some times criminal — even from the view point of working class ethics. 'It's a crime to get caught.' WAGE SLAVES. Agitation makes them members of the I.W.W. Education keeps them Members of the I.W.W ...

"As Others See Us" (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

'As Others See Us' (To the Editor). Fellow -worker, — Allow me space to make a few re marks upon the points raised in Uie letter published in last week's issue of 'Direct Action' under above head ing. In the first place, the writer of the letter acknowledges the illogical po sition which is held by the working class to-day and lays particular em phasis upon the fact that the work ers, who, alone, by their labor, pro vide the boss with the good things of life, are yet compelled to beg from these same bosses for work that they may live. He then asserts that the working class must unite, 'for their own pre servation,' and infers that this is the only use of organisation on the eco nomic field. This policy of 'preser- vation' may be all very well lor senile craft unions which aim at es tablishing friendly relations between the slaves and their masters, but is quite foreign to the spirit which ani mates the I.W.W., as 1 shall try to show hereafter. Your correspondent asserts that the I.W...

Sydney News [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

Sydney News . ? -f— ? Sydney Local had a field day on the Domain on the 26th December. The black-coated fraternity, who in cluded the Starvation Army, and a husky archbishop of the Anglican persuasion, came out from the cob webs of the slobber factories, to have a few words with Jehovah, about his coming on the side of Australia in the present rumpus. This choice col lection ol rascality and workshys took up their pitch alongside the I.W.W. # # ♦ The Wobblies rendered 'The Preacher and the Slave' with disas trous results to the 'pie in the sky' friends, whose meeting closed with prayer, and Gorsave at four o'clock. After the pulpiteers departed, the di mensions of the crowd grew steadily larger. Fellow-worker Grant held an extremely large audience, who were deeply interested. # # ♦ The collection taken up amounted to £6 12s 5d; the sales of 'Direct Action,' £1 19s 7d; and the sales ot literature, £5 13s.

American News [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

American News ? Fellow-worker Jack Daly, of San I Francisco, writes interestingly, under I date December 3rd: — I Fellow-worker, — ? I have just finished reading 'Direct I Action' of October 30th. It is the ? {bird copy it has been my good for ? tune to get hold of, as I have been out in the country a great deal, and I out of touch with the movement ac j lively, but doing my little bit, never I theless, by sowing the seeds of dis I content on the job. I I can see from the tone of your I little fighting paper that you are up I against the same enemy that we are I —prejudice, ignorance, and the stu I iiidity of our own class, plus the capi I talist press, the pulpit, and labor fak I ing politicians. Thirty-five years' ex I porience with labor leaders has prov I en to us that there is no man, or set I of men, big enough or great enough I to lead the working class.

Bill Magee [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

Bill Magee From sarly dawn till twilight gray, One Bill Magee, a working plug, Toiled for his boss, and oft he'd say — He was that sort of silly mug, 'At honest work I feel I'm free'; Some quaint ideas had Bill Magee. With barren brain and muscles strong, By sweat and blood his crust he'd earn ; But why he worked so hard and long He never asked, nor tried to learn; 'For what the hell,' said Bill Magee, 'Do I know of philosophy?' And joy and gladness, light and love, Or music, pictures, books or song, - These gracious gifts from gods above, To his dull world did not belong; 'Such things as these,' said Bill Magee, 'Were meant for better folk than me.' And when a man whose blood was red, Belonging to the rebel clan, Explained the way the bosses bled The brainless, honest workingman; 'I leave such things,' said Bill Magee, 'To blokes with wiser heads than . me.' He thought that all Magee's were born And placed upon this sinful earth To eat the husks and leave the corn For people of sup...

Women's Peace Army. (To the Editor). [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

Women's Peace Army. I — * _ ^i (To the Editor). ? Sir- dince Mrs. Paul had the 1 I.W.W. platform on Sunday night 1 last to 'attack' the Women's Peace I Army, formed by Miss Pankhurst in j Melbourne, 1 take it for granted that 1 you'll give me the opportunity to j give a brief reply to that attack in j your paper. 1 I Miss Pankhurst, as Mrs. Paul re- 1 cognised and stated, understands J clearly the economic cause of the I war. She also understands the class J struggle, and since I, as an Interna- J tional Socialist, and President pro I tern of the Sydney branch of the I W.P.A., am also awakened to these J facts, there is no room for discus- I sion, re causes, since all sides agree. I Mrs. Paul caused some laughter I by presuming that the 'Jesus story ? and the Hun of a God in the skies, I had the women of the W.P.A. by the I nose.' My- reply to that impertinent 1 presumption, is that I kicked to ? blazes all church arguments twenty ? years ago. I The chairwoman, attacked by Mrs. I Pa...

A Year of Propaganda. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

A Year of Propaganda. .. — * — ? — ? — The I.W.W. in Australia has no rea son to be ashamed of the amount and extent of its propaganda for the year 1916. Our enemies, the capitalist class, politicians of all stripes, as well as many so-called revolution ists, who believe that there is some magic behind the word 'Socialism' which will land the workers into the i millennium, twelve months ago were ; ', all united in asserting that the I.W.W. in Australia was dead and was not a factor to be reckoned with in the ij working-class movement. It is re lj: markable, however, the amount' ot i persecution, calumny, and misrepre sentation which this 'dead' I.W.W. has met with from the same quarters ?' !^| during the year just ended. At one and the same moment would be found an article in the capitalist press congratulating the workers upon their refusal to be swaye*d by a , 'few irresponsible syndicalists,' etc., while another article bewailed the ex ', tent to which revolutionary propagan , da...

'Hunism' In Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

'Hunism' In Melbourne. A Melbourne correspondent ?writes: — The Prussians are in Melbourne — and in khaki. Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, the safety 01 the person — these sacred rights that the workers have fought for adowii the ages, through a mist of blooa and tears, have melted away as snow before the summer's sun! 'British Freedom' has become a mockword. The Huns are in pos session of the citadel! And the authorities are working night and day to drive them out? Not a bit of it!— watch the sly clos ing of the eye! For freedom of expression a work ing class orator is to languish three months behind prison bars — so de creed the Huns! And the result? A fresh rousing of the followers of the Red Flag — and many tongues strangely loosen ed by the stimulus of persecution. Was it not always so, fellow-workers —else wEere would be the I.W.W. ol to-day, ever growing and thriving like a lucerne patch beneath tlie harrows — or a walnut tree through the cudgelling? And so the Prussi...

Melbourne News. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

Melbourne News. The local here is making good headway, considering the trouble one is up against who dares to hold meetings other than for the recruit ing of slaves for the Human Slaugh terhouse in Europe. Notwithstand ing the barriers built by the authori ties, the I.W.W. speakers are stick ing to their work, and numbers are being enrolled. Prosecutions under the War Precautions Act still con tinue, and J. Scurrie, a lover of liber ty and freedom, has been sentenced to three months' hard labor for mak ing statements 'prejudicial to re cruiting.' Another charge brought against him, that his statements were liable to cause 'dissatisfaction to the King,' was withdrawn. Under the regime of Billy Hughes, Labor is indeed coming into its own. One vniter wrote about William Morris Hughes, that his political career was so crooked that if he were to hide be hind a corkscrew Jesus Christ him self could not find him. There is no doubt about it. After the New Year the local will on every Thursd...

I. W. W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 8 January 1916

I. W. W. Preamble. T3ie working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class have all the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the machinery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the management of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a state of affairs which allows nun sp.t of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working-class have interests in common with their em ployers. These conditions c...
