BOULDER NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 March 1915

BOULDER NOTES. Our propaganda is being carried on under the directorship of F. W. King. When we get enough of the slaves to accept tli© I.W.W. philosophy, we will absorb the unemployed ny uomg blow on tne job, and by ro ducing the hours. These fields are the home of crafi. unionism and the Labor Party, yet these impotent institutions can not, up to date, iind a champion to jjji- licly refute or debate the 1AVAV. arguments. We are not rushing membership, our immediate work is propaganda — to get the slaves to understand, and when they understand. . . They will join. Our Boulder Sunday night street meeting is the m,ost attentive, and enthusiastic for the One Big Union. Every day at twelve o'clock may be seen at the mines the most de grading sight of our present social system — men hunting and fighting for jobs. The bosses stand at the office door or look through a window and pick out their slaves. A mine called Chaffer's here, clos ed down about two mouths ago, ow ing its slaves ;£l,7...

Sabotage. PROFESSOR ATKINSON ATTEMPTS TO SABOT SABOTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 March 1915

Sabotage. ? & ? PROFESSOR ATKINSON AT TEMPTS TO SABOT SABO TAGE. In a letter recently delivered by Professor Atkinson of the Sydney University on the subject of Syndi calism, reported by 'The Socialist' (Melbourne), his remarks on sabo tage are worthy of note. 'Sabotage is in itself a form of action which reduces output. A reduction of output means ultimately a reduction of wages, or, in other words, a rise in real prices. If the workers make boots more slowly, for instance, they cause boots to become dearer.' From which is to be gathered that. in Mr. Atkinson's opinion, the less the workers produce the worse their position ultimately becomes. If this proposition is sound as applied to the capitalist system, then its logical corollary is that the greater the productivity of labor the better is the material position of the laborer. Now, we have heard Mr. Atkin son say that he strongly believes in teaching industrial history to the workers, though we are not quite sure which w...

Brisbane News. 4*k The class-conscious members of this local are still jogging along, doing all we can do wake up the others. Although we are such a short time on the war-path, the re sults are verv pnrntirap-inpr. Prac tically all our literature has gone, and we are anxiously awaiting a further supply from head-quarters. Our meetings are getting a fair amount of success as far as attend ance goes, but it will take some thing drastic to shake the cob nebs from the thinking boxes of** the slaves here. On Thursday we rolled up to the A.S.P. meeting, as a motion was on the book 'to take a stand whether the Chicago or Detroit Administrations be endors ed.' The 'lawyers' of the party quib bled and split the motion into three (i)- take a stand or not; (2), Chic ago or no; (3), Detroit or no. No. 1 was carried; 2, lost by one vote owing to some of our members mis understanding the position, and 3 was unanimously turned down.

Industrial Organisation. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 March 1915

Industrial Organisation. Many of tbe workers to-day, agree that the One Big Unon is our only hope, yet these workers cannot drop the idea of parliamentary action. The advocates of nolitical action may be divided into two classes, die opportunists, those who hope ty gain good jobs at the expense of the working class, and the other class who do not thoroughly understand what industrial organisation and di rect action really mean, or what these methods can gain for the work ing class in their historical struggle A few illustrations will make the industrial unionists' position clear. Let us take the Golden Mile for example. It is just as hot and dusty ia any of the mines, whether Mr. Scaddan or Mr. Wilson is Premier. The trucks are just as big and heavy, as when Mr. Collier or Mr. Gregor}' is Minister of Mines. Now, the heat, the dust and the size of trucks is something that vital - lly affects the underground workers in their everyday life, it is their lab or conditions. If labor condi...

The I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 March 1915

The I.W.W. Preamble. The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no jjeace so long as hunger and want are found among 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 until the workers of. the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the ma cllinP.rv nf nvnduH.imi ami nl-inlieli fl-in -nr-ura oircfsm We find that the centreing of the management of industries into fewer 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 sot 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. Thes...

Journalistic Sycophancy. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 March 1915

journalistic Sycophancy. Since the European thieves fell ii quarrelling among themselves, on-v cannot pick up a newspaper in this State at any rate, without encount ering something like this: 'The fol lowing anecdote, illustrative of Lord Charles Beresford's fondness for practical joking is culled from the 'Weekly Wriggler,' ' or ' 'The (So ciety Squirm' is responsible for this delightful example of Lord Charles Beresford's high-spirited humor.' And then these lick-spittle s-cribc3 recount how the noble lord, after temporarily blinding a fellow-diner by flinging a 'pat' of butter in his facs, succeeded in casting the blame on an innocent bystander. Or how undetected, he dropped a defunct and odiforous rat 111 the soup-tureen at some official guzzle, or slyly pur loined and destroyed some indispen sable garment belonging to a fellow traveller. Everyone has noticed, no doubt, how much the senseless are amused by seeing vexatious or injurious in cidents befall others against whom they ...

Free Speech in New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 1 March 1915

Free Speech in New South Pales. The fight in Newcastle is still on. Nearly thirty members of the Indus trial Workers of the Word are at present incarcerated in Maitland Gaol for upholding freedom of speech. There are over forty mem bers at present in Newcastle, ready to contiuue the fight. It is going to be proved conclusively to the authi ties, that liberty of speech is too i''' - portant a liberty to be lightly sac rificed. The ideas and propaganda of t1 One Big Union is to go on unhinder ed, and the authorities in attacking the organisation are only advertis ing it, and arousing the curiosity of the working class. By doing this they are acting as the friends of the I.W.W. Not one of the gaoled members will regret- going to gaol jjroviding that it carries the n:fb sage into the mining camps. Although there has been to press ing appeal issued by the 'Goncral Organisation, many of our members have reached Newcastle from the railway camps, and other country placegj to take their stan...
