The so-called “Labor Day” ceremony from long ago to today especially in recent decades, has been the contrasting image of the line-ups and fortifications which can and should be the real feature of this day and name. Labor Day in the midst of life and class struggle is a keyword to show the readiness, solidarity and organizing, steadness and class awareness, determination of the world working class against capitalism and the readout of the manifesto of the labor movement for the immediate destruction of this system. Talking of “Labor Day” with any other narrative and interpretation will not only be “Labor Day” but also a show of the victory of the bourgeoisie in capturing this ceremony and taking it out of the hands of the working masses. A very tragic incident that has happened for decades and what we now see under the name of this banner is a very annoying tragical comic of the repetitive dance of leftist cirles or some workers following the rituals of the bourgeoisie.
The Labor Day “1th May” means that the workers of the world demonstrate the current level of establishment of their own anti-capitalist council, if they don´t have this organizing with this orientation, would share with each-other their root-critique of own arrangement of today´s forces, radical dissection of what has distorted them into degenrate dissolution strategies and apply their critical results to the basis of an internationalist solution. In this regard, they make a conscious, planned and practical exit strategy out of that situation into the head of global decisions. If Labor Day lacks these identity indicators, except that it´s a show for deception and a scenario of producing illusions, what´s the meaning and subject matter ?! Formation of a group by a call from this party and that union and syndicate, the begging demand of a few cents more wages or a better salary from the capitalists and capitalist states, departure from the perspective of always remaining a worker and labor-force salesman, immortality of wage labor, referencing to destiny of the working masses and humanity to the dynamic ups and downs of value-added capital, locking up livelihood and health care, welfare and basic human rights, everything to the charters and foundations of durability of capitalism, be satisfy of a few anti-regime slogans, or socialism socialism what it does have to do with the Labor Day ?! why should such a poisonous and narcotic routine bear the mark of workers and the Labor Day ? The world labor movement doesn´t need religious and ideological rituals and scholastic prayers, adherence to sanctification of rites and reverence for traditions, but is in need of the symbol of class existence, the growing survival of this movement and the achievements of its struggle and execute them in the battlefield to free the product of labor and production from the clutches of capital and capitalists, disrupting and deactivating the economic political, legal, civil and social order of capitalism, the worldwide organizing of the power of the class campaign against wage-slavery, exercising this class power against capital in all areas of social life and how the current class forces are arranged in this class war. The first day of May is the day of reporting the achievements in these class battles. It´s the day of meeting of the international councils and also headquarters of the world workers´ council movement against wage slavery. The need of lamentation about the Chicago Workers isn´t the reason for their uprising or their message to their fellow workers in the world and in history, rather, it´s about current state of the labor movement and its current agenda for pursuing and advancing the anti-capitalist class campaign. To become May 1th the Labor day, the world labor movement must be getting itself out of the stinking mess of the twentieth century liquidationst. Workers of all societies must replace their own day-to-day struggle for livelihoods and political freedoms, basic human rights, the challenge of criminal gender discrimination and environmental pollution, against child abuse and misogyny, war and incitement to war and genoside with a direct council struggle against the mode of production and social relations that defend these catastrophies. Labor Day without this social resurrection, without this radical replacement, it will never become a Labor Day. But from this year on, it can be the starting point of the radical struggle to advance towards achieving this goal. The first step in this path is to accept two basic points, first, the urgent rise of the labor movement for a radical exit from the rotten quagmire of catastrophic strategies so far, the only way to free man from the explosive outbursts of capitalist natural contradictions. Secondly, this departure not only has no element of utopia and dreaming in it, rather, it´s the most realistic and feasible sytategy facing the working class and humanity of this age. The difficulty of the path is assumed, but tying the runaway from hardnesses to wandering in delution and misleading not only isn´t the way to reduce difficulties, but it´s just burnout, diminishing, suppression of self-power and whether or not lasting depression in morass of miseries and degeneration. That´s why we must be doing something about it. The octopus-like power of capital and wage-slavery system must be confronted with the organized power of council of the working masses. It´s necessary to enter the field of class campaign with this power in all areas of social life. Departure from the point of remaining as worker, always being a wage earner, making life conditional on wage-increase and desire to improve livelihoods from capitalists or the capitalist state, demands such for freedom, human rights and the elimination of gender discrimination or reduction of environmental pollution from the wage slavery system must be confirmed such a delusion, and instead of demanding only higher wages and better livelihoods, must impose the manifesto of dominance on fate of work and production with the utmost power organized in councils against wage labor , the capitalists and capitalist states. Instead of begging for freedom, basic human rights and reducing discrimination, the organized power of the anti-capitalist council must be exercised against the political and civil, legal and social order of capitalism. This must be made into the content of our work , life and class battle in all countries and continents .
Let make May 1th be a day of class solidarity and demonstration of the class power of this movement all around the world. We demonstrate this internationalist solidarity and harmony in an united class campaign to impose united demands on the wage slavery system in all countries. We´re talking about this radical change in the course of the current labor movement and in May 1th that is homogeneous with it. A Labor day that is proportionate and compatible with this radical change in the course of the current struggle that will bring the days of the rise of the workers of the world in an annual and internationalist campaign to fulfill the urgent united demands worldwide. Set a time framme for this workers´internationalist and anti-capitalist campaign. Our concrete suggestion is that in the first year, completely remove the livelihoods, housing and essential necessities of life, education and healthcare and medication, care for the elderly and the disabled from any kind of trade relation and make all of them as a list of united demands of all workers in all countries in the world. All these necessities should be provided free of charge for all human beings.
Focus this year´s internationalist campaign on meeting these demands. Announce that on the day or days of the campaign we will shut down the wheel of production and work, and we will disrupt the order of capital in all its forms all around the world and at the same time. We´ll line up our class power and use it at the same time against capitalism all over the world. Let´s turn Labor Day into such a day, and fluttering the flag of May 1th with a list of our demands and claims. Write on the flags that our worldwide campaign and all demands and claims are the siren of our class war for the complete destruction of capitalism.
Let´s shout that we´ll fight next to this flag , a flag that testifies to the internationalist determination of the workers of the world for the ultimate liberation of humanity .
