“Hunger riots” are struggles of the proletariat!

Everywhere in the world the contradiction between the human needs and the needs of Capital, of profit, is always more striking. Grim murderous merry-go-round of stock exchanges and markets, cynical and murderous calendar of adjustment structural plans, all this implies for our class always more misery, deprivation, daily and generalized poisoning. Capital’s catastrophe speeds up and it's always our class that picks up the tab!

Capital deprived us of anything to force us to work

When it doesn’t need our labour force anymore, it lets us die

Capital kills and doesn’t have anything else to offer

But the proletariat doesn’t take the increasing brutality of these attacks against its survival conditions without reacting. These last weeks, in dozens of countries all over the world, our class took to the streets, reappropriating something to eat in order not to die.

Faced with this human reaction social democracy deplores lootings and revolts “without prospects”. In the name of saving the planet it advocates austerity, abnegation and submission. Denouncing this or that “pernicious effect of the system”, brandishing the mystification of “world overpopulation”, it feeds us again with its wild imaginings of accounting reforms supposed to regulate profit and to humanize the capitalist barbarity.

Everywhere in the world proletarians nowadays get hammered through generalized attack against “purchasing power”. Yet, resignation through social democratic acceptance of the “lesser evil” globally still prevails today: the worst is and will always be elsewhere, farther, in the “third world”, by “the poorest”, “the most exploited”...

Bourgeoisie can still take the liberty of maintaining the struggles of our class in isolation and restore its social peace while murdering with impunity our class brothers striking for their most elementary needs. And this happens with the necessary support of these useful idiots, these docile citizens who vote and sort out their household waste, these sloppy spectators sitting before their television and who will maybe shed tears over “violence and hunger in the world” between two elections or sports results.

Dying or struggling, there is no other alternative for the proletariat

Let’s support our struggling class brothers, let’s fight everywhere against exploitation

Hunger riots and suburbs riots... these struggles are ours

Our enemy is everywhere the same

This system is in crisis? May it die!
