The N. W. U. and Work. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 August 1915

TheN.W.U. and Work. The National Council of Women wants industrial conscription, or what it calls national service, for women. Tlie X.C;W. is chiefly comijosed of our ie niale unemployed. The wives and wo men folk of capitalists, politicians, par sons, professors, judges, lawyers and i-U the other hangers-on of capitalist so ciety may be found there.

The girl iu shop and factory may, therefore, on that account be less liable to insult from their em ployers, and this may he- said to be the only 'national sor^je' N.C.W. folk -?vpr render to 'their 'n sex. The spectacle of this idle, vicious, good-for-notlnng clique, who cannot wash their own soiled underwear with out having a woman of the working class to do it for them, discussing the problem nf work, is enough to raise a howl of laughter in hel...

The LW.W. Preamble, The working ciass and the employing class have nothing in common. j There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among mil- j lions of working people, and the few who make up the employing class j have all the good things of life. j Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of j the world organise as a class, take possession of the earth and the ma 1 cbinery of production, and abolish the wage system. j 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 I ever-growing power of the employijag class. The trade unions foster a j state of affaii-s which allows one set of workers to be pitted against j another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping to defeat | one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employ* j ing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class 1 have interests in common with th...

Agitation in Melbourne. No Conscription. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 August 1915

Agitation in Melbourne. No Conscription. The action of the Federal Labor Government in attempting- to force conscription upon the people of Australia, has brought upon itself the ignominy and contempt 01 all rational -minded people. T,here are things which cannot be tole rated, and the attempt to rear up iu AusLralia a military autocracy should meet with the opposition of even the most docile of the working class. The faithful, dog-Hke obedience of the Labor politicians to the mast er-class has not been shaken even by the indignation of many of their own adherents, but with dogged per sistence they pushed on with their legislation of reaction and oppres sion. It must now be plain to all wbat traitors these Labor politicians have been. With glorious promises of the good times that were to be. they rode to power upon the bucks of the working-class. They have now joined hands with tlie enemy — the master—class — and are endeavouring to force the shackles and fetters; of conscription up...

Work and War. [Newspaper Article] — Direct Action — 15 August 1915

Work and War. I would take the liberty to draw your union to the great opportunity that exists in Australia during next harvest for the I.W.W. to organise the rural workers of Australia. Ever since the war started, and es pecially since the Commonwealth Gov ernment started recruiting, the an swer that tbp snuatteis mid ih& r-nrkios gave to the men who asked them for a job was, 'Why don't you go to the war? You will get six bob a day and tucker there.' The result is that thous ands of men enlisted because they had only one alternative, either to starve or enjist. Two years and a half ago the Com monwealth Labour Government sent George Reid to Berlin to address the German Reichstag- on emigration from Germany to Australia. George told the Reichstag that Australia was as big as the United States and had less than five millions of people. He also told the Reichstag that Australia had room for l.tX) millions, that there were thou sands of miles of Australia tlie foot of which had...

FROM QUEENSLAND. tt is remarkable that the workers can ii ? imposed on so easily, sei'ing that the imposition is so palpable.

Aft^r that it is hardly sur prising for the workers to listen to A damson, the Labor representative, i 'iterate the remarks of his co-parasite, and state that in order to make more progress he would like to see them form many more trade unions.
