Statement of solidarity with our comrades at CSAAWU.

Dorset IWW General Members’ Branch wholeheartedly supports the efforts of the Commercial, Stevedoring, Agricultural and Allied Workers’ Union in protecting the interests of rural workers in South Africa. As revolutionary syndicalists we demand full respect for all our Fellow Workers regardless of their industry or location, affirming our tradition that an injury to one is an injury to all.

We are disgusted at the attempt of the state to suppress the union by imposing punitive and disproportionate costs on it for defending its members legally, potentially stripping this isolated workforce of its only independent voice.

We appreciate that some of the products we consume in Western Europe are provided by people toiling in conditions we abolished a century ago. As conscious working class militants we are well aware that the bourgeoisie would if it could, reduce us all to the lowest circumstances and it must be emphasised that the presence of super-exploited workers anywhere in the global market exerts downward pressure on us all.

Therefore the CSAAWU is in the vanguard of the class struggle and deserves the solidarity of all workers, we urge our comrades around the globe to provide whatever assistance they can, financial or otherwise.

Long live the CSAAWU! Victory to the organised working class!

One thought on “Statement of solidarity with our comrades at CSAAWU.

  1. CSAAWU salutes Dorset IWW for their commitment to international solidarity. CSAAWU continues to be inspired by comrades across the world who are pledging their support for the struggle of farmworkers in South Africa. Solidarity is the cornerstone of the workers movement! It is the working class building tomorrow today!
