Syndicalism, the Industrial Expression of Anarchism
by George Woodcock
"The syndicate is a form of union which differs from the ordinary trade
union in that it aims, not only at the gaining of improvements in wages
and conditions under the present system, but also at the overthrow of that
system and its replacement by a free society by means of the social
revolution based on the economic direct action of the workers. This is not
to say that it ignores the day-to-day struggle, but its members recognise
that only by a complete destruction of the structure of property and
authority can justice and security ever be attained for the workers."

Racism and the Class Struggle
By Workers Solidarity Federation
"Anti-racist work should occupy a high priority in the activities of all
class struggle anarchists. This is important not simply because we always
oppose all oppression, and because anarchists have long been opponents of
racism. It is also because such work is an essential to the vital task of
unifying and conscientising the working class- a unity without which
neither racism nor capitalism can be consigned to the history books."
Anarcho-Syndicalism, Racism and Struggle
by Direct Action Movement - IWA
"To be anti-racist it is not only necessary to be against racism and scum
like the nazis (I'll get around to them later), it is also necessary to be
against the STATE, (whatever colour flag the government waves), against
the bosses and finally against the patronising and racist race relations
industry. To be truly anti-racist one must also campaign actively for
racial unity, the unity of the working class. True anti-racism is also
anti-statism, if the state is smashed the whole racist structure is
smashed. And without state protection how long will the nazis last?"

Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number -
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you -
Ye are many - they are few.
