Letters to the Editor
Like Sleeping Giants the Trade Unions of the not only the U.K. but New Zealand and the CFMEU and P.S.A. , in Australia have recovered from their anaesthetised sleep , and not unlike "RIP Van Winkle , they are baffled by what surrounds them.
Their organisations , have be hi-jacked by the ever present contemporise , of Lundy's , of Benedict Arnolds , of quisling and kupappa , the arse kissers , the fore lock tuggers , and the fellatio-aters who now shamelessly desecrate the Trade Union landscape with their presence and dispensation of personal indulgences that would make the "Bulldogs" , look like misers..
These new victories by the outcasts of the Union Movement, prove that when dealing with bastards, the sword is mightier than the pen .
"Figuratively speaking of course".
In New Zealand , On September the 4th, at Auckland Trades Hall, Nadine Rae, an organiser with the Service & Food Workers Union, will be presenting a video and report about the struggle to build fighting democratic unions.
Nadine's presentation will also include discussion on > strategies for increasing union membership, grassroots participation in activities and decision-making, and building international solidarity. Perhaps a few Australian kupapa Union Bosses would find it prudent to attend.
Closer to home the CFMEU, is a least putting up feigned resistance, to its rape , in an attempt not to lose face,
In Ireland, the energies previously focussed on sectarian battles , are now being turned on the exploiters of the people be they socialist or capitalist, with the revival of the spirit of the "Larkin Philosophies."
In Scotland the recent Victory at the Glasgow Infirmary, has created a momentum, which will be hard to stop.
The cute partnership of the Unions and New Labour, know as the "Blair Affair" has a bigger crack that the "San Andrea Fault" running through it.
The 4 million unemployed in The German Republic are making rumblings sounding much like those in the early 1930s.
Is it not now time? For us, to beat our ploughs back into swords, regain some dignity and teach our oppressors a lesson?
I am not one to use biblical terms, but one must accept the will of a greater power than ourselves and this current oppression reminds me off the narration in Samuel 15; and particularly verse 33, of which Abbott and his cohorts, like wolves in sheep's crying out for civil discourse after pillaging the land.
When the going gets tough; then the tough get going;
Well! Let's Go!
