April 30, 1975 was the happiest day for the first generation after WW2 and after the Holocaust. It was the day when the little people in black pajamas, the workers and peasants of Vietnam, defeated the mightiest death machine the world had seen since Nazi Germany, namely Nazi USA, so that the workers of the world literally danced in the streets, including in the USA. We hope to do the same for this year's milestone labor strike for peace led by the ILWU on May Day 2008.
Things can no longer go on in the old way. The lackeys of the capitalist class, the Democrat-Republicans, in the state legislatures and congress, refuse to iincrease the taxes for the rich, those who make over 0,000 a year, so that we have a minimally functioning society. Instead, they perpetrate war and fascism, increasing the war and prison-death penalty budgets at the expense of the education and social services budgets. Only the socialist (Peace & Freedom Party in California) and Green Parties call for a reversal of these priorities, and mean it. For more on Peace & Freedom Party, see:
The way out of this darkness is being led by labor, as it must be, namely the ILWU, with a political strike for peace on May Day 2008, striking at the profits of the capitalist class, the only thing that matters to these parasites. We will all be there in one way or another, physically or by wearing red, teaching our fellow workers the history of May Day (it started in this country in the 1880s in the struggle for the 8 hour day and only the anti-communist labor fakers prevent us from having May Day as our official day off honoring labor), and the like. It will take a labor general strike nationally to put an end to this bankrupt social order that perpetrates war and fascism to maxmize profits, at the expense of our lives and the earth.
Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White,
Same Enemy, Same Fight,
Workers of the World, Unite!
We have nothing to lose but our chains;
WE HAVE A WORLD TO WIN!
