November 1989: The Working Class Trapped Under the Velvet Tricolour

We are pleased to announce the English translation of our pamhplet on the Czechoslovak Velvet Revolution of 1989. In 2009, when it was originally published, we wrote: The demise of the Stalinist monopoly in November 1989 presented a relatively open situation… which the working class did not exploit to establish itself as an independent political force. This pamphlet emphasizes that the “socialist regime” was very successful at demobilizing the proletariat, and adds that the working class was prevented from finding its political, subversive face by the vanguard of the “Velvet Revolution”, the Civic Forum. Under its leadership, the working class became a prisoner of the concept of citizenship – and, defenceless as it was, later a passive victim of the infamous “tightening of belts” in the 1990s. The true symbol of November 1989 was no velvet, but rather a straitjacket knit from the civic tricolor.

The pamphlet is available as a free PDF below… Pokračovat ve čtení „November 1989: The Working Class Trapped Under the Velvet Tricolour“

Workers on the Government and Union Slide: from one defeat to another so far

Ever since the first days of this government’s term in office it has been clear that it will attack working-class living standards (the coalition parties promised this even before the election). The employees of the public sector were just the first ones in line. According to the government plans workers as a whole are soon to become the victims of cuts and reforms. The results of the beginning of the government offensive were therefore of great importance to all workers. What were they? The defeat of public sector employees has shown once again the impotence of union-led protests. Let’s review this defeat to draw some conclusions.
