It’s necessary that all men resolved to pursue the combat begun by the workers band together so that a real revolutionary unity be brought about, with the goals of overthrowing the current regime, of destroying the current system in order to construct a society from which oppression will be absent in all aspects.
WORKERS, CONTINUE TO OCCUPY YOUR WORKPLACES
The combat is taking place where you work. Peacefully hold your bosses hostage, which means that there are that many fewer enemies outside who are against us, and if it is possible have your factory for you, and in relation to the movement, in such a way as to assist it in accordance with your means.
LONG LIVE DIRECT MANAGEMENT, REVOLUTIONARY ARM OF THE WORKERS IN COMBAT.
IT IS NOW THAT WAR MUST BE DECLARED ON THE INSTITUTIONS.
IT IS NOW THAT WE MUST REFUSE EVERY PARLIAMENTARY AND UNION MANEUVER AIMED AT DENATURING THE STRUGGLE WE ARE CARRYING OUT.
