den arbetsköpande klassen har ingenting gemensamt. Det kan inte bli
någon fred så länge hunger och längtan råder
bland miljoner av det arbetande folket, medan de få, som utgörs
av den arbetsköpande klassen, har allt det goda i livet. Det
måste föras en kamp mellan dessa två klasser, tills
arbetarna i världen organiserar sig som en klass, tar makten
över produktionsmedlen, överger lönesystemet, och lever i
harmoni med Jorden.
Vi anser att centraliseringen av makten för företagen in i
allt färre och färre händer gör fackförening
oförmögna att hantera den ständigt växande styrkan hos
den arbetsköpande klassen. fackförening fostrar ett
samhälle där en grupp av arbetare ställs mot en annan grupp
av arbetare i samma industri, och hjälper därmed till att
besegra varandra i lönestrider. Merdärtill,
handelsförbunden hjälper de arbetsköpande klassen att
förleda arbetarna i tron att de har gemensamma intressen med sina

Across the US, mainstream unions are looking to cuts tens of millions of dollars from their budgets in the face of feared attacks under the new regime, as some of the heads of big unions are also trying to cozy up next to Trump. Organized labor under the leadership of the labor bureaucrats has taken a position of trying to maintain social peace at all costs; more interested in keeping a lid on potential worker insurgency than fighting for better wages, conditions, and environmental regulations.

The IWW is a union for all workers. We oppose all forms of discrimination. Therefore, we stand firmly against Trump's recent travel ban targeting Muslims. This step towards official discrimination is an attack on all of us.
The IWW stands for organizing and building power for the most vulnerable workers, including all low-wage workers and immigrants. We are heartened to see the massive resistance that sprang up immediately after the order, with people showing their outrage at airports across the country. We are particularly excited by the New York City taxi workers who stopped service at JFK airport, and the airline workers who refused to comply with the ban. There is a palpable feeling that all decent people understand that we need to stand together on this until every non-citizen is allowed entry into the country without fear of reprisal or repercussion.

From the Twin Cities GDC
Victim still in Harborview Hospital; Shooter is well-known right wing gun activist.
SEATTLE, WA, January 25, 2017 — Social media activists claim to have identified the person who shot an anti-racist organizer on the University of Washington’s Seattle (UW-Seattle) campus on Friday, January 20, 2017, as a well-known right-wing gun activist attending white nationalist Milo Yiannopoulos’ event with his wife, also a gun activist. Although the shooter shot a person in a protest situation, University of Washington Police have refused to make an arrest, and released the shooter and the person who accompanied them to turn themselves into the police early Saturday morning. King County prosecutor Dan Satterberg has not indicated any plan to pursue prosecution. Local politicians have remained ominously quiet.
