Lund: Revolutionär 1 Maj 2019
Tid & sted
Today there are all the possibilities to create a global society without classes. Every day we are reached by news on advancements in medicine, information and logistics. With the aid of automation we could be on our way to a society without wage work, where people can be properly fed and where we have a chance t express ourselves and develop rather than be burned out at work. We don't need a state to coordinate society but can create a true, global association of free individuals.
But instead of this occuring mass unemployment is spreading, pointless bullshit jobs are created by politicians, states attempt to militarily and politically dominate resources and the planet itself risks death. It is with this perspective that we invite you to May Day in Luund. Like Rosa Luxemburg said: it's a choice between socialism and barbarism.
The environmental disasters are coming one after another, but during this year we have seen direct action-oriented mass movements. Youth are the first to stand up for the climate. Let us be clear: it is capitalism that is the problem, which is destroying ouur environment and our world. It is only a society without classes, a non-capitalist one, that can save the earth we live on. Time is of the essence, but there is still time to win, as long as we do not get fooled by companies and politicians once more.
The working class in Sweden is a broad group which has, for a long time, been dominated by Social Democracy which has served to passivize the class. The suggested limitations in the right to strike are the clearest example of this, but the law proposal has created the largest opposition within the unions in decades. Parts of the blue collar unions, LO, have begun to break with the Social Democrats and open the possibility for independent workers struggles. We have seen the results of such struggles in the Dock Workers victory, and just now in the victory of the migrant workers in Skåne Factory Workers. Migrants are themselves a group which is essential to understand the modern working class and which clearly shows the need for antiracist solidarity within our class of wage workers.
Our society is, at the same time, growing more reactionary: our feminist gains and antiracist struggles are being attacked by a reactionary block in society. These are organized fascists, as much as right-wing politicians and right-wing editorials. They are trying to control and discipline people to retain the order which is now collapsing all around them. They will lose, but they have to be fought. Our goal is to create a society where the free development of one person is the basis for the free development of all, and then we have to take the fight in the streets against reactionaries of all stripes.
FOR A SOCIETY WITHOUT CLASSES!
TAKE TO THE STREETS ON MAY 1!
