The Preamble of the I.W.W. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 July 1914

The Preamble of the I.W.W. The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among mil lions oi working people, and the few who make up the employing class nave all the good tilings 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 ma chinery of production, aud abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the management of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade uni ns unable to cope with the evergrow ing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a state of af faira which allows one set oi 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 mis lead the workers into the belief that the working class have interests In common with their employers. These co...

As a sequel to the riotous incident of Juno 13, when tho Industrial Work ers of the World and their sympathiser:-; drove a trades union parade back tfi the Miners' Union Hall, another ser ious disturbance occurred yesterday. A crowd of l.W.VV. miners marched against the hall, but before they reach ed it were fired on by the Sheriff's de putics, who killed ouo man and wound ed two others. This was the signal for a pitchet battle to commence., and jt raged round tho hall for some time. There was much shouting for dyna mite among the crowd, and an attempt was made to blow up the hall, but th. charge failed to do any great amount of damage. Then a band of armed men went to tho Stewart mine and boldly brought away several boxes of dynamite. The guns of the deputies prevented t: new supply being placed effectively, and two more explosions occurred without much damage being done. Later on, how...

A WORD TO ADELAIDE SLAVES. The attention paid by you tu the speakers of the I.W.W. is suggest ive of your appreciation of the prin ciples expounded from our platform. We recognise the great difficulty of our task in trying to propagate our ideas to Ihe workers of various cen tres where our propaganda has not yet reached. Being wage-workers like yourselves, we have not the means of carrying on our education al work to the desired extent. Having studied the situation from every standpoint, we have come to the conclusion that industrial Union ism is the only hope for the working class, and as we, like you, are the victims of capitalism, we deem : our duty to deliver this message wherever workers are exploited, i You have had our literature antii our speakers amongst you r.ow fc: some time, and the attendance at our meetings is a sign that our pro paganda is making headway.
