I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 11 March 1916

I.W.WV Preamble. The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so. long as hunger and want arc found among' millions of working people, .arid the few who make up the employing class. Jiave all , the good thing's 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 :md the machinery of production, and abolish the wage system. : S We 'find that the centreing of the manage- ? ment 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 af- ? 'fairs which allow one set 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 co...

Time's waters roll. j Mark to those who went before us, I Hero- hearts whose death-pang bore us, I Up thoy call -to swell the chorus, I Though they know not of our name.

Echoes From the West. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 18 March 1916

Echoes From the West. ? ^- 13} M M. Sunday, the 27th, the fellow-workers of Fre mantle mid Perth locals once more joined forces on the--J?erth Esplanade, and despite the fact that F.W. Reeves was unavoidably absent, and that a large meeting- . of the All British Association was in . full blast on the opposite side of the. People's Forum, the l.W.W had its regular audience. The normal attendance was supplemented by quite a large section of the military forces who gave k most attentive and courteous hearing to the various speakers, and remained from start to finish of our proceedings, which were conducted by F.W. Mick McGurn, from Wet tonia (a mining centre with a sprinkling- of the rebel clement in its industrial' ranks). Our speakers were FvW.'s Monty Miller and Mrs. A. Westbrook. whose occasional articles in 'Direct Action' serves as a criterion of her power as a fluent speaker with. original ideas. F.W. McGurn filled the interim between speak ers with vivid word pictures of the ha...

SYDNEY PROPAGANDA. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 18 March 1916

SYDNEY PROPAGANDA. Week end propaganda in Sydney was exceptionally successful. The meeting in the Domain was addressed by Fellow workers Grant, Barker, and Larkin, and a collection amounting to over £4 was taken up. Over 53 dozen 'Direct Ac tions were sold at this meeting alone. .,. Though the weather was trying, the hall was packed on Sunday evening, Fellow worker Barker being the speaker for the occasion. It is evident, that Sydney slaves are waking up to the fact that the I.W.W. has a message to deliver. Our best thanks are due to the plute press for the amount of attention it has drawn in our direc 1ion of late by its attacks on the I.W.W. itospel. The authorities, too, by their second attempt in six months to gaol Barker, have very evidently caused the Ihinking section of the workers to believe that there must be something in an or ganisation that the 'powers that be' are so active in trying to down.

ARBITRATION, ITS "REAL OBJECT." [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 18 March 1916

ARBITRATION, ITS 'REAL OBJECT.' Sydney 'Daily Telegraph' says: 'The real object of this class of legislation (arbitration') was to ston strikes.' Open confession is good for the soul. How often have wo been told by arbitration advocates that the object of such legis lation is to better the condition of the worker's. As far as this country is concerned.' says the 'T).T.,' 'it is the big unions which are able to inflict most damage on industry, for .rvvliich arbitration laws, if they are of value, are most necessary.' We recommend a careful study of this opinion to the union arbitrationist. The more powerful a union is, that is the greater its potentialities for 'inflicting damage on industry.'— which, translat ed, means hitting the boss's profits— the greater is the necessity for shackling it by means of arbitration laws. Does not this admission of the capitalist press fully bear out the I.W.'W. conten tion, that the real object of arbitration is to compel the workers to put up with ...
