I.W.W. in London. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

NORTHERN WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

NORTHERN WORKERS. In organising the coloured workers of the North the l.W.W. is doing work of supreme *' importance to tho move ment for the emancipation of labour. For the organisation of coloured labor is essential to the success of tin? cam paign against capitalism. It is highly probable that the coloured aliens will make first class unionists, and add to the movement that touch of barbarism necessary to meet thu unscrupulous tactics of capitalism. Indeed, it would fit in with fate's usual irony that our despised alien should take a leading part in the abolition of the wage sys tem. All plans t.o achieve freedom must fail to succeed unless backed up by direct and vigorous action, and tho simpler mind and less restrained im pulses of the yellow and brown races, promise to give the necessary vigor to the more reasoned efforts of European workers. In the eveut of failure to starve or slaughter the European workers into submission, the capitalist will naturally endeavour to utilise t...

Lessons from the New Zealand Strike. MISJUDGMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

Lessons from the New Zealand Strike. ? o ? . MISJUDGMENT. During strike times we see a man really in his true light. In the time of peace we gather wrong impressions of each other which are scattered to the winds when the gauntlet has been hurled. Those who we thought would be found wanting at the critical mo ment, most of them have been found staunch, some who we thought were true were false. The strike is a great educator, and by the education derived no understand each other better. LOOSELY LINKED UP. From the moment that the waterside workers laid down tools, from that moment their defeat commenced. For eight days after, the carters, whose un ion was part of the N.Z.F.L., was used at once to break the strike. There was a continuous procession of carts going past the Auckland W.W.U. committee rooms, up till 10 p.m. every night, car rying coal and coke to the electric pow er station. It was known that, if Auckland could have been j-ut in darkness, the victory was won for the worke...

Another Idol Smashed. Another God Fallen. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

Another Idol Smashed. Another God Fallen. — — ? \j ? -. .... Just as men build idols, and construct images to worship and adore, so surely are they., as' years roll by, destined to see their gods perish before their eyes through circumstances over which they have uo control. It is the inexorable law of fate, that all things must change. Everything in the wide world is subject to continual and everlasting change. The old must always make way for the young, the worn-out for the new. The Political Labor Party in Australia is yet only a few years old but progress aud science have made such rapid strides in all spheres of life that the Parliamentary machine has been rendered obsolete and antiquated. ,u* .v.««. ™«-uV .« «,« x-«uwai moor rarty, caused by several members kicking against the despotic tactics of that party, lias caused much consternation among many members of the working class. But, after all what is there to become hysterical about. It is only the inevitable trend of events ...

C. B. SHAW. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

C. B. SHAW. It is the final test of conviction, the only lever strong enough to overturn a social system, the only way of saying Must. Let six hundred and seventy fools loose in the street, aud three policemen can scatter t.hem. But hud dle them together in a certain house in Westminster, and let them go through certain ceremonies and call themselves certain names until at last they get the courage to kill, and your six hundred and seventy fools become a Govern ment. Your pious mob fills up ballot papers aud imagines it is governing its masters. But the ballot paper that really governs is the paper that has a bullet wrapped up in it. Vote! Bah! When you vote, you only change the name of the Cabinet. When you shoot, you pull down governments, inaugur ate new epochs, abolish old orders and set up new ones. Is that historically true, Mr. Learned Man, or is it not? Ought, Ought, Ought are yon you going to spend your life, saying ought, like the rest of our moralists. Turn your oughts in...

Thrift. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

Thrift. The working class of Australia have been getting quite a good deal of superfluous advice from middle class, stay-at-home patriots to prac tise the strictest economy 121 their domestic expenses and to practice thrift. This bug-bear of thrift, so sedu lously fostered by middle-class eco nomists is one of the most potent factors in reducing the already low standard of living. For the sake of example, we will presume that in order to save a few coppers per week, the working-class in general decided to let their whis kers grow, instead of getting them shaved off by the barber. That would mean that all barbers' shops and their attendants would be unneces sary. The barber would be out of a job. Having a stomach and j-robabiy a family, he would have to look for a job in an already overstocked labor maket. This would mean that com petition would become keener for jobs. Wages would fall in accordance with the increased competition, and by that means the few coppers saved by growing be...

The "Manly" Council. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 July 1915

The 'Manly' Council. ? * ? One of the Manly councillors rote from his patriotic brain-box the other night at a council meeting, and blubbed that 'certain speakers in the Sydney Domain were attempt ing to slop yuuiig an?H from going to the front.' Another of the parish pump fraternity also said that he knew for a fact that certain young men intending to so to the front had stopped at home on hearing these speeches. it seems also that the eloquent Domain speakers have had an effect upon the Manly Council. Yet I have never heard any speaker trying to prevent members of the Manly pal ish-pump politicians from donning the khaki and taking their j^atriotic carcasses to the fighting-line. If war is good enough to go to, it is good enough for Manly councillors to go to. Perhaps these potential heroes will hide behind their ages or their families or their businesses. How many of the council fought in the Zulu, Soudan, Chinese or South African Wars? How many of these heroes liave got a war-me...

Wowserism in Excelsis. . ? 0 ? Or The Wail of the Williamite. 'By their fruits ye shall know them.' (By Ajax.)   Brethren in Christ the '''Glorious Twelfth'' is upon us. Every year   according to time honored custom, the 12th of July is kept sacred to the   memory or' William of Orange. Of hue years this festival has lost some on   its old time significance, hut nevertheless on tins day, as of yore, the Orange   lodges, reinforced by a religious rabble of wailers, howlers, Bible bangers, and   soul snatchers rally to the cry of 'No Popery,' and 'Keep the memory of   William of Orange green,' which, seeing that green is the Catholic colour,   sounds rather illogical, but these Puritans are peculiar people, as we shall   presently see.   Briefly, William was a second Joshua, who givatly helped the Protestant   Party by exterminating Papists ost...
