Labor in N.Z., Continued from page I [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

Labor in N.Z., Continued from page I financed by the biggest employers in the Auckland district, and on whose staff was W. P. Black, a person who sued the 'Maonland Worker' for a large sum to «-»'»? pensate him for a character that had got soiled and grimed. The capitalist press has been pleased to refer to the new officials as being 'studious' and 'moder- ate,' a splendid tribute 1o their uselessness to the working class ol N.Z., but nevertheless a eulogy that will not wash with that section _r _j ? «,.J n-nT-l-crc \\4ir» Sflv. that OI auvanccu numus ''« — j- 'There is nothing in common be tween the working class and the employing class.'

PORT PIRIE DOINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

PORT PIRIE DOINGS. The old saying 'that good things arc done up in small parcels' would aptly apply to Fellow worker Reeves and his work in Port Pine, His clear and logical explanations ..f ^nnnmirs. and the way he has expounded the principles of the I W.W., has set the slaves think ing round here. During his stay here sixty one new members have joined, and a large batch are com in«r in next week. The workers have been duped, and are fed up with Parliamentary action, although they have drawn it in with their mother s I milk. Nevertheless, at our open an meetings we attract a large audi ence, and we never fail to join up a iw rebels afterwards, who mostly are, we are pleased to state, young fellows. We are the makings of a good local here and with the help of our 'Mare,' and rebels from other locals, we are booming. Reeves holds three propaganda meetings at the smelter gates, as the workers come off shift and I thcrebv has done a good deal of service* especially by his increased sale...

Russian Strikes. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 August 1914

Russian Strikes. Russia is in the throws of a pro- letarian revolution. The master class   there as elsewhere are tiger-like in their attack upon anything which   endangers their material interests,   The Russian workers, however. are fighting and dying like heroes. Who   says that the working-class cause is hopeless in face of such self-sacrifices   But of course, we may expect our political socialist 'friends'' to de liver us a homily shortly on the futility of violence. Because the bal lot has been such a huge success! .Over 500:v.iiuri in Maitland were fined a few days ago to the tune of £ 2000 for simply saying ''We won't work.' This constitutes a record in   the annals of Australian industrial history. Yes. sure, the Labor Gov ernment of New South Wales will go down in history as a record brea ker in labor legislation and adminis

I.W.W. Revival in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 10 August 1914

I.W.W. Revival in New Zealand. There is not much doing in New Zealand in the revolutionary line.: The workers are ^doing the zig-zag from the strike to that illusory 'weapon,' the ballot -box. The toilers here were lashed into revolt last year, ana they got wen s'.ouched ; and no wonder, when ihcv hadn't practised Direct Action on ; a large scale for over twenty years. So Labour 'is now like a giant half stunned bv a blow, and in that dazed condition striking blindly at the shadow of tbe thing that dealt the blow. In other words the workers' attention is being fo cussed on poliiics. In the defeat of lhe 1913 strike the Workers suffered; but they in flicted very severe losses on the em ployers; so much so that lhe bosses would go 10 some lengths to avoid another strike like it now. If the 'red' leaders here were as re volutionary and sincere as they were so fond of telling us they would spend more time on pointing out the real causes of failure and les: time in trying to switch worki...

Workers of the World Unite against WAR!! [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 10 August 1914

Workers of the World Unite against WAR ! ! Shelley in -answer to his own question.

If this he true, the whole of the jK-opie 01 r.niope ana a yooaiy pro portion of those on other continents, must certainly be slaves lo the Armament Trust and to those other capitalists and financiers interested in Ihe promotion of the present war.

Arbitration [Chucked Over-board. ? « ? _ ? . — - Only useful to the Boss in good times. - ? . . ., ~ ^ . — . — - Holman again betrays the Workers. The Labor Party is bringing down legislation, to cancel all industrial awards. This will relieve the employers of paying an existence wage, and it will give to them unlimited oppoitun to take advantage of the unprece dented, and rapidly increasing army of unemployed. In doing this the Labor Party js proving once again that it CANNOT control or dictate to the employing class. Organise in the One Big Union, ye workers, and help us to compel the employer to preserve the pay envelope, and to resist the use in the cost of living. The Labor Parly has'nt indicated th&t the members are going to get paid less than the regular £560. The Bosses' profits are not to be interfered with. To Hell with ihe Boss and his Labor Party, join the One Big Union.

The Machine Idea. How it acts instead of Human Brains. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 10 August 1914

The Machine Idea. How it acts instead of Human Brains. Machines, like men. present them selves before the employer and seek employment. They ask, as men, women and children do, for the privilege of being used up in the process of production. Here I am, one seems to say, I have but to prove to you, an exploiter, that 1 am capable of producing more com modities at less expense that any two of the human machines you now employ. Instal me in your fac tory and I guarantee !o do even more than you expect of me. Your slaves, humble to prostra tion, servile as to the most auto cratic king, diligent to serve as you to command, must needs submit to my greater power to yield to you larger quantities of the almighty dollar. Their .efforts arc feeble when brought into competition with mine. To defeat me they must again defeat themselves by bringing forth, through their brains and muscle, a better iron maelrne than 1 am.

Short Arm Jolts. If you can't do enough for master with the business end of a pick, use the other end and master will dance ihe tango. 'For the want of a nail the horse was lost'.; for the want of a bolt the strike 'was won. You know the way without leaders. When leaders attempt to lead you let them lose themselves. Commodities and slaves are pro duced together. Commodities, through the careful preservation of the natural resources of the earth by the working class; slaves, through the appropriation of the same commodities 'by the master class.

The Preamble of the I.W.W. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 10 August 1914

The Preamble of the LW.W. lhe working class and the employing class have nothing in common. lhere can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among mil 10ns of worknig people, and the few who make up the employing da* have all the good things of life. ™™u u,e.Se iwo 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, and abolish the wage system. We fi,,d that lhe centreing of the management of industries into iewox and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the evex-growmg power of the employing .class. The trade unions foster a state of aflairs which allows 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 employ ing class to- mislead the workers into the belief that the working class have interests in common with their employers. These conditio...

SABOTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 10 August 1914

-SABOTAGE— ByWALKER C. SMITH. In order to gain certain demands, without losing their jobs, the. Austrian postal workers strictly observed the rule that all mail matter must be weighed to see if the proper postage wai affixed. Formerly they had passed, without weighing, all- those letters and parcels which were clearly under weight, thus living up to the spirit of the regulation but not to its exact wording. By taking each separate piece of mail matter to the scales, carefully weighing wun,i and 'then returning it to its proper place, the postal workers had the office congested with un weighed mail on tlie second day. This method is more effective than striking, especially when used on a large scale. In 1905 the railway workers of Italy gave a good example of the value of legal sabotage. They simply remained at their accustomed places and obeyed all the rules and regulations. When a person pur chased a ticket they had to present the exact change. When they failed to comply, the rule ...
