Broken Hill Report. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 August 1914

Broken Hill Report. The question of the hour in Broken Hill is the I.W.W. Some of our critics contend that we art; an* invention of the devil, and thai the main object of his Satanic Majesty in creating the I.W.W. was to crush out of existence the A.M. A. The present malignant mi sad c against the I.W.W. can be easily traced lo an atavistic creature named Leonard, who recently, by the way, refused to pay a strike levy to his starving, fellow-workers who were locked oui by the mine magnates of Hroken Hill. This same Leonard is now posing as an altruistic person, and as a would-be saviour of the common folk, but it won ' t work. The punv, efforts of this serviie slave and lickspittle of Ihe masters fo harm the I.W.W. is simple laughable. Since the event of Organiser Reeve our local has made splendid progress. Oevr eight pounds worth of literature was sold last week and seven dozen 'Direct Actions*' on hand were disposed of in a few minutes. This is the answer of the miners of Broken H...

What the I. W . W . Intends To Do To The U . S . A . (Reprinted from the New York World). [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 August 1914

What the I. W . W. Intendsj To Do To The U . S . A . By W. I). Haywood and J. J. Ettor. (Reprinted from the New York World). 'Iht; Industrial Workers of Um; World proclaim : It is the historic mission of the working class to do ' away with capitalism. The army of production must he organised, not only for the -:very-day struggle ?; with capitalists, but also to carry on 'product ion when capitalism shall have been overthrown. By organising industrially we are form ing the structure of ihe new society within the shell of the old. In ili'r.s struggle for industrial freedom the l.YV.W. has challenged ihe attention of ail classes in soc ! ictv. It is now a living force, a movement aiming at certain immed iate change's in society that wifl eliminate the privileged class as a ruling power and repossess the people; with the means of life, the earth, and its resources. We believe that the time has passed when this can be done b\ pcjlil :cal action. A transformation has already taken place a...

The Colorado Miners and their Critics. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 August 1914

The Colorado Miners and their Critics. A certain scribe in the organ oi the Australian Socialist Party a few weeks ago look upon himself the task of lecturing the I.W.W. on tactics, more especially with refer ence to the 'futility' of ihe armed resistance of the Color-ado miners in their recent struggle. As the connection of the I.W.W. with the Colorado light or with the advocacy of armed force is only apparent to those whuse dreams are disturbed by the progress of the organisation, 'Direct Action,' per haps foolishly, ventured to point this fact out io- the scribe in ques tion, and mildly suggested thai even a ' t,j calibre Winchester,' obsolete though it mav be, was .1 better weapon with which to meet a would-be assassin than a ballot paper. We say 'foolishly,' because to attempt 10 poin! out even obvious* facts lo people whose vision is ob scured by Parliament House is in deed a case of 'love's labour lost.' The result in this nise was lo be expected. Instead of replying fo the p...

Wellington Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 August 1914

Wellington Notes. (liv Frank Hanlon). The labour situation was bad enough before the declaration of ,var, but the recent European devel opment s- are having such effect on industry iu New Zealand, that it is impossible to forecast, anything, and difficult to- decide on any line of activity i.ven. Already several large bunches of men have been dis charged up and down the country. The secretary of the Employers' Association, doubtless anticipating a state of affairs that would jHit- the workers ;t the mercy of the masters, brought -silt a suggestion that the Arbitration 'laws be suspended dur ing the .,-ar. The suggestion has been turned down, ;for ,tlie time being a': any rate, and the plutt press say ii was made 'on iho spur of the moment.'' This means, in horse-sense English, that- the rapaci ous bourgeoisie arc not yet able tv, jude whether there will be a big p.liojtKgt ;or b \;Ag over-supply of labour as a result of (.lie war, and they don't yet know whether the suspension of th...

WAR! What For? [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 August 1914

WAR! What For ? By 'PESSIM.' International war is' at hand. Death is stalking through the con tinent of Europe. Annihilation, destruction, and chaos are about to become dominant in the very centre of the world's activity. Our ethi cal codes of peace and goodwill are being' broken, and arc giving way lo the bloody aggressive tenel s of war. We are unhumanised. We see red. We are ready to devour each other ; to tear each other to pieces ; to sing , cry, applaud, dissent, and approbate in an ecstasy of patriotism. We have become as animals. We have lost our civilisation. The reek of powder and blood is in our nostrils; in our eyes the sight of combat and victory. But a few short weeks ago we were men, taking' a pride in men's work. We stood by and helped a brother in distress, ever ready to staunch (he wounds of our com rades. We shuddered :\i the sight of human blood; and wept tears of svmpathv at the news of the largest shipping' calamities ever oxperi enced. II we were not good, at ...

The Preamble of the I.W.W. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 22 August 1914

The Preamble :of the I.W.W. Tiie working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no -peace 'so long as hunger and want are .found aniomg mil lions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class have all the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on t.ntil tbe workers 01 the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the ma chirery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the management of industries into few©/ 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 affairs -which allows one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat one- another m 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. Th...
