Reply fulvio cantile says: April 26, 2012 at 4:50 am On 1 May is the historic achievement of the Union working eight hours through the concerted action of the workers reached an international network. Today, for many workers, especially in the West, has its meaning blurs international and int…ernationalist. In many countries the first May has become a festive day, spiced with concerts and parades ritual, but in the U.S., despite the success of the campaign about eight hours, is not officially recognized. Nevertheless, in 2006, on 1 May was a great day of struggle in the United States for the rights of immigrants to the streets in unprecedented numbers were in the national March, “day without immigrants” from Chicago to Los Angeles. They were alone in a million! Since then, the movements and actions against immigrants in America and around the world developed after decades of relative silence. The next first May is the struggles of the West Coast port in America and other ports in the world and connect with the movement towards the conquest of the road and into the lens fill to the power of the number of the 99% that the feeling feels like urgently needed in the objective world of capitalism. On 1 May lose not, therefore, while his great importance of the historic day of working people throughout the world, united in the struggle for better living conditions and work adds an important political principle, which is directly related to the appointment of manifesto of 1848: united proletarians of all countries. There is another element that comes from the political collapse of the global capitalist system. Capitalism has idolized the competition and extend it to a market that is now truly global. All the big capitalists in the world, in harmony with the treacherous financial capital, the share of the 1% movement occasionally occupying so effectively compete with each other by using the keyboard from a desk a lot of money from one part of the planet in search for more profit. It can and will do, to be able to compete well and just to stir up among workers, with the large differences in pay, with the connivance of state machinery to serve with a huge banquet of the profits that wars are caused by the competition for art are fueled nationalism, racism and religious hatred, even experienced. The workers are aware, in a diffuse and accelerated like never before, that only their own units as workers and the artificial barriers of nationality, ethnicity, religion and interests of small individualistic provide political or trade union can be a force to bend the brutal cynicism of parasitism and voracious cannibals, now eroded and degraded nature of the social body. This finding, in fact, because of the internationalist class, the only barrier against the degeneration, the old institutions that the workers were given historically pervades such as trade unions and political parties have all fallen, more and more and more blatant opportunism and cretinism parlamentaristich to be the last bastion of capitalism, according to the now unstoppable urge emancipation, which rises from the depths of the class. If this path towards full political and organizational independence of workers to build their own political and economic instruments of aggregation, is how their unit will be known on the international character of the strategic tasks. We recognize that the unity of the workers are not the sum of the number, which is also overwhelming, and not a gift but an achievement that goes through the minds of individuals, nor is it simply because it is the problem of direct political power of world capitalism poses even in the crisis, but against which we must also reach the final showdown…… Therefore, our action has not as of 1 Stop in May We are all working world for a closer relationship between employees. We hope to make progress in the realization that the struggle for a better world only through unity and active solidarity of the workers themselves, their independent and self-organized struggle against exploitation and parasitism rampant localism and nationalism against the warmongering of the world. Therefore, one should at first May with the international fight!
