Arbeiderklassen og arbeidskjøperklassen har ingenting felles.
Fred kan ikke råde så lenge nød og savn finnes blant
millioner av det arbeidende folk, og de få, som utgjør arbeidskjøperklassen,
har alle livets goder.
Mellom disse to klasser må det pågå en kamp til verdens
arbeidere organiserer seg som klasse, tar produksjonsutstyret i besittelse,
avskaffer lønnsarbeidet og lever i harmoni med jorden.
Sentraliseringen av industriens ledelse på færre og færre
hender setter fagforeningene ute av stand til å mestre arbeidskjøperklassens
stadig voksende makt.
Fagforeningene fostrer en tilstand, som tillater en gruppe arbeidere
å bli satt opp mot en annen gruppe arbeidere innen samme industri,
og bidrar følgelig til, at de beseirer hverandre i lønnskriget.
Fagforeningene hjelper dessuten atbeidskjøperklassen a spre troen
blant arbeidere; at arbeiderklassen har interesser felles med deres arbeidskjøpere.
Disse forhold kan bli endret og arbeiderklassens interesser opprettholdt
bare av en organisasjon formet på slik måte, så alle
dens medlemmer i hvilken som helst industri, eller om nødvendig,
i alle industrier, nedlegger arbeidet når som helst en streik, eller
lockout pågår i noen av dens deler. Slik blir en urett mot
en, en urett mot alle.

We call the entire working class for a
GENERAL STRIKE on 11/27/2014
Against austerity and predatory neoliberal policies
Against the terrorism of poverty and degradation
Against State’s authoritarianism and the policing of public spaces
Against the relentless onslaught of capitalist elites and their state-servant
The working class does not claim fraternal benefits and privileges
It fights for the liberation of all humanity from the tyranny of the capital
Our resistance will be unyielding until they are finally overthrown.

On this day, Nov. 19, 1915, Joe Hill was murdered by the State of Utah.
A songwriter, itinerant laborer, and union organizer, Joe Hill became famous around the world after a Utah court convicted him of murder. Even before the international campaign to have his conviction reversed, however, Joe Hill was well known on picket lines and at workers’ rallies as the author of popular labor songs and as an Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) agitator. Thanks in large part to his songs and to his stirring, well—publicized call to his fellow workers on the eve of his execution—”Don’t waste time mourning, organize!”—Hill became, and he has remained, the best—known IWW martyr and labor folk hero.

On Nov. 10, 2014, anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos began a hunger strike laying claim to educational passes from prison so he could take classes in the university in which he had enrolled.
His application to the Prison Council, formed by attorney general Nikolaos Poimenidis, headmistress Charalambia Koutsomichali as well as a social worker, still remain unanswered. The appealing interrogator Eftichis Nikolopoulos, who has been claiming not to be tasked with this matter, has sent a document to the council reporting that Romanos’ application for educational passes from prison has been denied.
Iraklis Kwstaris began his own hunger strike on Oct. 29 for educational passes from prison to take classes at the university TEI of Piraeus. He is receiving the same denying documents from the council.
IWW Greece completely supports the hunger strikers and denounces the infringement of their legal rights. In solidarity we ask the council to give all educational passes from prison to Nikos Romanos and Iraklis Kwstaris immediately.
