The Catts' Call. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 25 March 1916

The Catts' Call. ''The Call to Arms' is a highly patriotic publication which has just conic into existence. According to an an nouncement in its editorial page, it pur ports to bo 'the advocate and exponent of Australia's highest aim— the winning oi' the war.' It is edited and managed by Mr. J. H. CJatts, Federal .Jjabor M.P., who is the- official head of the recruiting campaign in New South Wales. The patriotic instincts of 'The Call to Arms' would appear, according to the latest issue, to be severely shocked by the action of sonic wage-slave who cov ered Billy Hughes' appeal for recruits with l.W.W. 'stickers,' and gave an emphatic 'No' to Billy's gentle invita tion to enlist, So shocked is 'The Call to Anns' at this action, which it describes in head lines as 'Dastardly Defiance of the Nation,' that it covers two pages of the last issue with a fac-simile reproduction of the i'niuous Appeal, or, rather, with the. no less famous stickers which were, pasted all over it Then it relie...

No Master [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 25 March 1916

No Master Saith man to man, We've- heard and known That we no master need. To live upon this earth, our own, In fair and manly deed; The grief of slaves long- passed away Fsr us hath forged the. chain, Till now each worker s patient day Builds up the House of Pain. And we, shall we, too, crouch and quail, Ashamed, afraid of strife; And lest, our lives untimely fail Embrace the death in life? Nay, cry aloud and have no fear; We few against the world; Awake, arise ! the hope we bear Affainst the curse is hurl'd. It grows, it grows; are we the same, The feeble band, the few ? Or what arc these with eyes aflame, And hands to deal and do? : This is the host that bears the word, No Master, High or Low, A lightning flame, a shearing', sword, A storm to overthrow. — Wm. Morris.

The Problem of War [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

The Problem of War By A. E. BROWN. Wai is useful to the capitalist class as a means — (a) Of keeping down surplus popula tion , (b) Of creating division among work ers; (c) Of checking their rising aspira tions. Although Avar causes frightful devas tation, it is doubtful if it would pay capi talists to abolish it. In addition to the vast profits made during waging of war fare, the repairing of the destruction caused by. war gives opportunity for a further exploitation of labour. In the event, however, of capitalists deciding to abolish war, the first object ive given aboA'e, (a), might he attained by capitalists allowing to be spread among the people, a knowledge of eugenics; the second, (b), by exploiting wifh increas ed intensity the religious and political fields; and as to the. third, (c), the con centration of the vast accumulations of surplus value in industry might possibly render the upkeep of a military force un necessary, as capitalists could then af ford to alleviate in a...

"Tell Me Your Company—" [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

'Tell Me Your Company ?---' The cable news recently informed us that the ''foremost unionist in Austra lia,' Labor Prime Minister Hughes, while in New York, fraternised with one r'Merry,, the head of the United States .Steel Corporation, and with a Mr. David son, head of the Pierpont Morgan inter ests. The two gents mentioned are identified with two of. the /most powerful capitalist organisations that the : world has ever known — or, rather, with ONE organis ation, for it would be difficult to say where the Morgan interests begin and end in the United States. Little Billy, of course, did not conceive it to be part of his duty in the interest of labor to visit the factory hells of Penn sylvania, in which the Morgans and the i ?arnegies, the Davidsons and Merrys, ex ploit their slaves from 12 to 14 hours a day for wages averaging less than £100 a year, and under conditions that a Dante could not picture. Billy, previous to his departure from Australia, had a conference with the fore m...

Echoes from the west. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 April 1916

Echoes from the west. BY 'EUREKA.' Nos. 5 and 10 Locals once more fore gathered on Perth Esplanade for usual propaganda. F.-W's. Hancoinb, chair, Mick Sawtell, and Monty Miller, speak ers. The former in his well-known, concise and logical style gave an exposi tion, of the scientific principles of the One Big Union of the l.W.W. as the only or ganisation capable of coping effectively With the up-to-date organisations of Capi talism, revealed the weakness in structure and tactics of all forms of present day unionism, which is all unconscious of the raging class war, and ever ready to drop the one effective weapon of labor — the strike, at the mere no* of their gods in the high-salary places of unionism and politics. Miller followed; and at the later stage of the meeting the aftermath of the 'All British' Meeting flowed over to oar plat form. When the Old Warrior pointed out to the new arrivals the erroneous im portance they attached to the Titanic European conflict, and how little att...

Tom Barker Convicted VINDICTIVE SENTENCE.— THE CLASS ISSUE COGENTLY STATED BY- THE CROWN. ]n the Central Summons Court on Wednesday last, Tom Barker, Publisher of 'Direct Action,' was found guilty of publishing matter likely to prejudice re cruiting-, and fined £100 and costs, with the alternative of twelve months impris onment with hand labour. The charge related to a cartoon pub lished in this paper nearly four months ago, and which depicted a capitalist draw ing huge interest from the War Loan, while the worker was represented as giv ing his life on the battlefield. Another item contained in the charge was a pai*a graph which appeared in another part of the same issue of 'Direct Action,' with the words, 'Labor Prime Minister Hughes has offered another 50,000 to the Modern Moloch. Politicians and their masters have always been generous with other people's lives.' An appeal has been lodged against the conviction,' and the case will again come up for hearing in the course of a few w...
