Egypt’s Military and Wiscansin’s Gov: reminding us that the historical material conditions of capitalism don’t require a conspiracy…

21.02.2011 § Leave a comment

Egypt’s military effectively bans strikes,  (See reuter’s article HERE) Wisconsin’s tryna make em illegal (see cheesy video HERE, note sign at 0:18 which reads “BIEBER SAYS: HELL NO!”).

But isn’t that wacky? Was telling workers “don’t strike!”  usually a central tactic of capital to destroy working class power? we didn’t think so… when was it, when wasn’t it? and it doens’t seem to really matter whether or not they are “allowed” (see: Egypt’s largest Factory strikes despite warnings)…

What does it mean to use legal action against strikes and worker uprisings? what does it mean that the biggest threat is to render worker organizing illegal ? Because it is irrelevant whether something is legal if there are enough people doing it… ? Does this mean that the state is assuming workers are not strong enough? Is there a gap in reality? soooo not sure…

Ok, and whats up with the gender question here? Its a lot of reproductive workers, teachers espesh, in wisconsin. The textile factory in egypt that struck back in 2007 just went on strike again, in which there were mad amounts of women. More on this issue momentarily…
