Austrian government is planing to establish the 12 hours-working day
and a 60 hour working week, that caused a great anger, especially within
the workers. From all over the country people came to make a great
statement against that. In many parts of the demonstration there was a
vitalized and struggling atmosphere. Even if the leadership of social
democracy and the trade unions tried to use the protest for their own
interests and tried to dominate the whole demonstration, it was getting
clear that it would not be not easily for them. A huge part of the
demonstration was not under their leadership, which had good influence
on the atmosphere. The demonstration was much to huge for the leadership
of the trade union to have influence on the whole demonstration. That
shows what is possible if the masses and the workers are trusting in
there own power!
is nothing to expect from the bourgeois leadership of the trade union
than to protect their voice within the bourgeois apparatus of power.
was a good demonstration for the revolutionary and consequent
antifascist forces. That huge demonstration was powerful start for
following actions and initiatives, which have to be done by the
activists and workers themselves. The people have to struggle without
the control and influence of the leadership of the bourgeois trade union
to fight back the 12 hours working day and all the other weakening on
the working laws and conditions! That is possible with the power out of
the companies, the working-class-districts and the schools!
Defend yourself against the 12 hours working day – struggle against the capital!
