war why is only one side hurting?
"Find out just what
people will submit to, and you have found the exact amount of injustice
and wrongdoing which will be imposed on them; and these will continue,

they oppress." ( Frederick Douglas)
ONCE AN AUSSIE BAGMAN
Once an Aussie bagman
Travelled to the Middle East
Under the name of the A.W.B.
And he sang as he put the money in their moneybags
“I don’t remember a

Anti-War demonstration in Perth on March 18
The demo in Perth on 18 March 2006 was attended by about a thousand people, down substantially from the size of demos before the beginnng of the Iraq War. The majority of people out in downtown Perth on Saturday were shopping. They weren't hostile -- rather, openly indifferent or mildly curious about the people who chose to attend the rally.

Law won’t let us strike today
We’re coming down with the ‘flu, ‘flu, ‘flu
Howard’s laws went through, through, through
Any day is a good day to take a personal strike. If you want to have a good day, just take it slow and encourage your co workers to do the same. The boss already gets enough from you, take a break!

When the union's inspiration through the workers blood shall run There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one? But the union makes us strong
Solidarity forever! Solidarity forever! Solidarity forever! For the union makes us strong.
Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite Who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might Is there anything left to us but to organise and fight? For the union makes us strong.

The General Strike
by Ralph Chaplin
Thousands of thoughtful and class-conscious workers in years past have looked to the General Strike for deliverance from wage slavery. Today their hopes are stronger than ever. Their number has been increased with additional thousands who are confident that the General Strike, and the General Strike alone, can save Humanity from the torture and degradation of the continuation of capitalism and the misery and privation of its recurrent wars and depressions.
The General Strike is the child of the Labor Movement. It is Labor's natural reaction to a system of society based upon the private ownership of the machinery of production. It is Labor's ultimate attitude in the class struggle. It is Labor's answer to the problem of economic disorganization.
