British Justice DISCOVERED IN MELBOURNE. I.W.W. Attacked. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

British justice DISCOVERED IN MELBOURNE. I.W.W. Attacked. Ths long list of crimes and out rages committed upon the advanced proletarian army, was added to in the court to-day. F.Ws. Rancie and Johnston were charged with 'having sold printed matter on the Yarra bank.' How dreadful! Their cases, like all others of -their kind were tried in the usual doggish fashion. The snob who graced the main chair, shined in all the necessary assets that goes to make up a worthy successor to Kaiser Bill. Explanations were vio latona, and defence was offence. Of course, we expected nothing more than this kind of justice, but in this case the authorities concerned, seem ed to be totally ignorant of what dras tic results will follow their findings in the near future. I may mention by way of passing, that the attack on the I.W.W. stands out in bold relief ?'from similar events of the past. Leaf lets, etc., are continually being circu lated by members of the 'forward- ing on department' of Jesus Christ,...

Organised Scabbery. Typographical Unions a Good Thing for Job-Crafting Secretaries and Political Wire-pullers. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

Organised ScaWbery. Typographical Unions a Good Thing for job-Crafting Secretaries and Political Wire-pullers. No industry,, at the present time, is in a worse state of organisation than the printing- trades generally. The industry is split up into the following waning- factors. First comes the gigantic Typographical Union com posed of the compositors, linotype operators, with the -.stereotypers, rotary machinists, and publishers as sub sections. The record of this union is a very unenviable one from a working-class standpoint. It has scabbed as con sistently as anything in the country. The performances of the past two years are of such a nature that surely any printer could see the foolishness of the craft form of organisation at a glance. ? During the strike of letterpress machinists in the works of Simmons and Coy., 'formes' were sent down to the loyal machinists to print; while the men on the job -were advised to come to a settlement which simply meant going back to work at the ...

BRISBANE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

BRISBANE NEWS. We are still battling- against the tide here, and though there are strong cur rents of patriotism and other'isms' against us, yet, on the whole, we are making headway. It will take some time and a few good stumpers to gal vanise the slaves into action. We have been kicking- around with the unemployed meeting-s here, and deputations went to see the sancti monious Mr. Barnes. He told them that the Empiah needed them, at the front, where there was plenty of work. Verb sap. The unemployed slaves, however, are of the usual gutless type. We are digging- up some rusty shillings for the Newcastle Fund. Let us know when the boys will be along this way. With best wishes. I am. Yours for the O. 13. U.. J. -J. BURKE, Corresponding Secretary.

Unemployment in Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

Unemployment in Victoria. — — y The antics now being indulged in by Trades Hall officials, politicians, and many Socialists in trying- to deal with ihe unemployed question, if it were not so tragic, would be amusing. For many years labor politicians have o.:iu-d upon the glories of labor rule, but when puJled up with a round turn and asked to deal with the modern evil of unemployment, they are like so many stuttering' idiots — incapable, impotent, and unable to mention any action which will remedy the evils of unemployment. Craft union secretar ies and organisers are floundering around in the social bog of distress, and completely helpless to define any definite programme which will obviate the terrors of the out-of-worics. Many Socialists have beautiful Utopian schemes to submit to the Government which if enacted all will be well. The slaves of Melbourne have had demonstrated to them the antiquated methods which craft unions, labor politicians, and reform societies use in dealing w...

The Amazing Adventures of Mr. Simple. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

The Amazing Adventures of Mr Simple. 1. Tnerc being no work in Sydney, Mr. Simple goes to Newcastle, where he is startled to see an I.W.W. man sp?akrig on the One Big Union. The speaker is arrested, and Mr. Simple starts to protest, when he also is ar rested for offensive behaviour . 2, He gets a month (the usual thing in Newcastle), and he is set to work on the cabbage patch in Maitland. The warder catches him in the act of eat ing a cabbage. He gets three days' solitary. 3. His solitary confinement is en livened by I.W.W. songs in the adjac ent cells. 4. He is now busy on 'light' work, where he unfortunately develops housemaid's knee. 5. The rest of the month is spent in hospital* where, thanks to the atten tion of a horse-doctor, he improves enough to be released. 6. Mr. Simple is soliloquising upon the grandeur of British liberty, and makes a mental resolution to join the I.W.W. at an early date.

Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

Melbourne. The I.W.W. Local No. 8, has now g-ot its feet firmly planted in the soil of Melbourne. Its propaganda is having a telling effect both on and ofl the job. Although ,only a few months old, Melbourne local has been suc cessful in making slaves, masters, and the press, give attention to its revo lutionary tactics. As a result of the 'slow down on the job' agitation, as a means of making- work for the unemployed, the Melbourne 'Age,' of February 26, came out with a leading article from which the following is excerpted: 'The mob orator; the unionists' worst enemy; preaching- the gospel of 'loaf ing'; he. urges his dupes to g-ivc the least in order that they may claim the most. He is opposed to work of any ki'^d, and glorifies the imposter who makes it his aim in life to dodge it.' The 'Age' always tTic 'true friend' of the worker, has another spasm in which it appeals to the 'intelligent Australian working-men' and says: 'Once the idea of loafing permeates the community, protec...

Organisation News. More Members Jailed. In Melbourne and Sydney. Sydney. Something Doing. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

Organisation News. More Members Jailed, In Melbourne and Sydney. Sydney. Something Doing. ? a ? On Sunday, the 2Sth February, a g-igrantic meeting was held in the Do main, as a demonstration against the g-aolinifs in Newcastle and Sydney. Three new speakers grot on the box, and put the goods out in a very re assuring- and attractive manner. Sales and collection were exceptional. Out of all the jjaolings and persecutions, we are evolving several good open-air talkers. Put in the. boot, Labour Government and authorities, you are b'uildinj-- up by your own persecution, the very Union that will overthrow you ! ? n ? The Labour Government of N.S.W. has empowered the police to arrest, or summons anyone who holds a pub lic meeting-, or sings to attract a crowd. The police have religiously enforced this statute against the I.W. \V., and the A.S.P., but in the case of the Salvation Army, and crthcr relig ious organisations, they are allowed to block foot walks and traffic as much as they lik...

"Good News." Hurrah for the Millenium. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

'Good News.' Hurrah for the Millenium. Premier Holman has some good news for the industrial bosses of New South Wales the other evening at a meeting of the Labor Council. The fact that it was given forth in the guise of good news for the worker is a tribute to Holman's cleverness as a politician, and likewse' reflects the eco nomic ignorance of the workers' indus trial representatives who, according to the press report, loudly cheered Hol man's remarks. In brief, Mr. Holman has 'come to the conclusion' that 'the limit has been reached' so far as increasing the workers' wages is concerned, and what is now required is to make what wages the workers receive 'go further.' So the first step towards the millennium has actually been taken, and nobody., seems to be aware of it except the f.ir seeing Holman. The so-called 'industrial' lefiisl.i tion upon which the Labor Party prides itself for being- responsible lms at last succeeded in laying down the 'living-' wage as eight shillings a day...

The Class War. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

The Class War. The basis of industrial unionism is the 'Class Struggle. The only justifi cation for the I.W.W. is the fact that we, of the working class, are engaged in a war, of an organised capitalist class against an organised working class. It cannot b'e denied, that society to day is divided into two economic classes. Even newspaper editors, par sons, politicians, and other persons who hold up their hands in horror at the doctrines of the 'Class War,' ad mit it in their everyflay life. Tory, Liberal, and even so-called Labor editors, preach for the capital ists; the clerics preach to working class, contentment : 'Be satisfied with your lot, that it has pleased God to call you.' But we of the working class deny the right of anyone to call us to slavery, to long hours, to low wages, to war, to unemployment, to adulterated food, and our sisters to prostitution. The politicians of all parties admit that there is a class war, when they assure us that arbitration is the best method o...

The I.W.W. Preamble. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 March 1915

The I. W.W. Preamble. 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 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 chinery of production, and abolish the wage system. We find that the centreing of the management of industries into j fewei and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the j ever-growing power of the employing class. The trade unions foster a I state of affairs which allows one set of workers to 'be pitted against I another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat I one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employ- 1 ing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class I have interests in common with their ...
