News and Views. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 May 1916

News and Views. The Minister .for '-Defence announces through tho press that when the Con scription Bill becomes law in England, Englishmen resident in Australia will be called up. This throws a flood of light on the so-called self-governing powers of ilio Commonwealth. Notwithstanding' what ballot-box dupes may think, it seems British Capitalism can stretch out . its long arm and drag its slaves to its as sistance from its alleged self-governing possessions wheneA'er it deems lit. :;: «? * tf The workers on all sides are beseech ed by economists, statesmen and poli ticians, to practice economy for the dur ation of the Avar. Glasgow 'Forward,' in a recent issue, throws a little light on the reason therefor. It says : — 'Michael Mulligan, — Your interesting queries would require more space to ans wer than the present cost of paper en ables 'Forward' to allow, but we will deal with the most important of them. 'As you know the war is costing 'us' that is you, Rothschild, and the rest, ...

Strikes [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 May 1916

Strikes. There aro many kinds of strikes. There arc, for instance, the Blacksmith's Strike, the Schoolmaster's Strike, and tho i Mother's Strike! These last two usually occur among unions of young rebels. There is also the strike of the clack. When the clock goes on strike, it does not ceaso to tick: it merely wishes announce for general uiui iu iui minimi mi; timt; ujl iuu ucij'. When the clock of Revolutionary Unionism strikes throughou the world, we will know the Hour of Capitalism has arrived I ' Strikes are peculiar things! One day I met a mate employed as a 'striker' in an engine ering workshop. I said to him, 'Working, Bill?' He said to me: 'No, on strike. ' Now, how could he be on strike when he had stopped : striking? This is what they call an anomaly. Strikes occurred in quite ancient times! A strike of storemont and packers is reported as taking place under Spartacus some 2000 years ago. We gather from ancient records that tho slaves were working under ai}_- -Arbitration ...

Perth Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 May 1916

Perth Notes. ^ April- 30 th (Labor Day) was celebrated on the Esplanade by the No. .5 and 10 Locals of Freeniahtle and Perth. -.- This day, sacred in the estimation of the ad vnnced guard of the Workers the 'Wide 'World over, as the time of annual protest ?against the -conditions and methods of capital is: ic production, was ignored by the moribund political slaves of the sectional unions whose habitat is tho Beaufort Street 'mortuary. This customary indifference to the true in terests of the wage slave class left the field clear to the I.W.W., and a series of brief but enthusiastic speeches were made by the vari ous platform members of the Locals under the chairmanship of F. 'W. Parkinson. - These addresses in the aggregate formed a sl2-oug' indictment against capitalism, and urged the claims and rights of Labor, which ser ved as a column on which P.W.

Alien Labor. P.L.L. SECRECY. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 May 1916

Alien Labor. P.L.L. SECRECY. Tho.ro was a mattoi1 of some importance to the workers mentioned during1 the sit ting of. the P.L.L. Conference, which was not referred to in the press report of the proceedings. It appears, according to the delegate who moved in the matter, 1hat the press throughout Australia has been circularised by the censor forbidding the discussion of any matter which 'might prejudice me relations existing oetween i the Australian and Japanese Govern ments..' Particular care was to be exor cised that ho reference should be made to the introduction of 'alien labor' into 1 Australia. The delegate Avas se seized with what, he described as Ihe 'delicacy l\ ,.i of the situation,' that he did not desire ; Conference to discuss the matter, but moved that it be referred to the execu te with a view to its approaching the Federal Government so that the embargo . ; on free discussion should be removed.

The Lesson of Conscription. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 May 1916

The Lesson of Conscription. The militant section of the Trade Un ion Congress, at present sit ling in Mel bourne, considering the question of con scription, has issued the following mani fcsio to delegates: — 'We, unionists and Labourites, look i.o yvu in. mis gix'cii crisis oi me war situation, to act with boldness and de cision, and save the workfis el' \u., tnilia from the fale Avhic-h has befall-'ii our fellow-unionists in Great Britain.

'We would therefore nrgp the con ference to advise all Labour councils and Labour organisations whatsoever, to at once, prepare for a general strik.-, and so render the imposition of con scription an impossibility.

REASON AND UNREASON. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 20 May 1916

REASON AND UNREASON. Sydney 'International Socialist' sees in the Sinn Feinn revolt another illus tration of the failure of direct action. This is a typical example of the one-eyed method in which ballot-box advocates view such matters. From the noint of view of the opposing forces, it would rather appear that the whole episode is a triumph for direct action — with the neces sary power to 'make good' behind it. Notwithstanding what our political 'friends' in the Labor movement say to the contrary, direct actionists do not believe in voluntarily running their heads against a brick wall, nor are they foolish enough to advocate armed resistance to capitalism. ? They do be lieve, however, in acquiring the necessary power to make good their demands and under existing conditions we say that this can only be done by scientific Industrial Organisation. Our 'Sosh' contemporary wants 'the struggle between Capital and Labor kept within the bounds of reason and free discus sion.' Well, with the...

The Capitalist Press has, with its usual consistency, boycotted any reports of what must generally be considered as an extraordinary 'turn-out.' Only the 'Sunday Times' showed its recognition I of Ihe oncoming power of the I.W.W. by I referring to the fact that 'only four men I iii khaki were in the audience,' and I 'there were jio patriotic songs.' Awful! I Simply awful! I 'We were also told by the 'Chimes' I that many of those present would even I innlly HAVE to wear khaki. Perhaps, I perhaps?

Northern Strike. ? ♦ ? SCABBY TACTICS OF A.W.U. OFFICIALS. The strike of the Pastoral slaves in Centra* Queensland is, according to latest advices from the strike districts, still going strong, notwith standing the boycotting tactics of he A.W.U. press and repeated attempts of A.W.U. officials to defeat it. Fellow Worker H. L. Fish, who was originally chairman of the Strike Commit tee at Barcaldiue, , writes from Blackall under date 7/5/1G:-— 'We are still refusing to sign the Arbitra tion agreement. Dunslan, the district secretary for Queensland, was here and put the old dope of the A.W.U. into all that would take it, also demanded a secret ballot of the men to see if they would go back to work. Well, there was one taken and by a majority of one they re fused to abide by the Arbitration Award.
